Q&A Part 2 – Books and Weirdness Edition

Hello all- I’m back with part 2 of my Q&A. In case you missed it Part 1 is here and I’ve linked to all of the *awesome* bloggers who provided questions, so please do check them out!!

And cos there was an awful lot for one post- I’ve ended up putting the last set of Qs and As into one more post for this afternoon! Trust me, you won’t wanna miss that one 😉

DREW @ THE TATTOOED BOOK GEEK

If you wrote an autobiography what would you call it?

Confessions of a Bananaholic

Bananas

What colour are Orangutans? Orange or Ginger?

Orange!

If you were given the chance to rewrite a book which book would you choose and why?

talon

Hmm this one’s pretty hard- but I’d probably pick one of those dreadful dragon-but-not-really-a-dragon books like Talon- I’d just make them act like *actual* dragons. (You know, eat hunters instead of falling in love with them)

If you could punch an author in the face which author would you choose and why?

Hahaha what a question!! Well I don’t want to punch any author in the face, but can I pick someone like Chairman Mao or Hitler since they technically wrote books? Or maybe a Hitler apologist like Roald Dahl (yeah I think I might have just ruined some people’s childhood…)

Snog, marry, avoid and the choices are Jeremy Corbyn, Theresa May or Turtle face himself Nigel Farage!

Eww what a question! Okay… so I actually asked advice on how to answer this one, cos I was stumped, and they said just go in age order, which means…

Snog Farage, marry May, and avoid Corbyn. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve just thrown up in my mouth a little…

DALEY DOWNING @ THE INVISIBLE MOTH

If you could change the ending to one particular book, which book would it be and how would you rewrite the ending?

Well I’m gonna resurrect my Marauder’s fangirl stage and bring Sirius Black back to life

STUART MCEWAN

If you could create an entirely new genre of books, novels and all things readable and glorious, what would it be

Orangutan steampunk-fantasy crossover 😉

ZEZEE

For some reason, I can’t think of any questions. My mind is blank.
Actually, my question is what do you do when your mind is blank and you’re stuck at a work cocktail party where you MUST talk to other orangutans?

Hehehe well I’m actually a rather chatty ape- when I get excited I talk, when I’m bored I talk, when I’m nervous I talk… you get the idea. Here are some actual conversation topics I’ve talked about at work dos:

  • Lucid dreaming
  • Why are there no medium sized models?
  • Places I’d like to visit
  • Internet strangeness
  • Politics (on second thoughts *don’t* do this one- it never ends well…)

ANNA @ TSUNDOKIST 

Which book character makes you so angry that you want to punch them in the face/throw the book against the wall/feed them vomit-flavoured Bertie Botts beans, etc?

lolita

Humbert Humbert hands down. He deserves to eat nothing but vomit flavoured Bertie Botts beans forever (FYI Lolita still holds the record for “book I threw against the wall the most times”)

EMMA THE BOOK LOVER

My question is: What was the last book you gave 5 stars to and why? 

six of crows

Just looking at this sexy book makes me want to read the second one- WHY IS THE POST SO SLOW!!! (seriously I feel a bit like a drug addict waiting for my next fix right now)

Well hope you enjoyed that craziness!! See you all again very soon!!

    Awesome answers!

    Age order! Lmao I think I was rather cruel with that question, at least I didn’t go with the other version and use f#ck, kill, eat!😂

    Roald Dahl, oh my, I agree, you’ve just ruined people’s childhood and ruined an author many think of as a national treasure!😂

    Ha, yeah, don’t talk about politics, it’s as bad as religion as a no no! People are happy to talk politics until you disagree with them!😂

    I think you did just ruin my childhood, with that bit of info about Dahl… And yet, it actually makes me feel better, because in the back of my mind I was always like, “There’s something REALLY weird about this guy…”

    And “Talon” was the *poorest* excuse for a “dragon” book. When all the dragons are in human form and trying to blend in with other humans — sorry, but LAME!

      haha oh no I’m sorry!! Yeah it’s something I’ve always known, so I even read his autobiography trying to get to the bottom of *why*, but sometimes people are just like that. I guess it’s why it’s important to separate artist and art.

      YES!!! I mean, I’m not totally anti dragon-humanoid characters, cos I think they have a lot of potential to be interesting (although I’ve only read one book that did it well- and can’t remember what it was called for the life of me) but they *still have to be dragons*!!! And these were not dragons- they were just whiny teens!!

    Haha, very nice. An entire race of banana wielding Orangutans ready to bridge the gap between Steampunk and Fantasy. Or Fantasteam if you will?

    Actually that just sounds like a shitty version of the drink Fanta! Oh well.

    I read that article about Dahl. I read a lot of “perhaps”, “maybes” and one liners. Not even close to what I expect when trying to form an opinion on someone. It was as factual as those tabloids I see in the grocery store.

    Yes!! Sirius Black back to life!! I’m still waiting for a Marauders book btw…
    I don’t ever plan on reading Lolita, no matter how people seem to always find a reason to praise it. It’s just ew.
    And I would definitely buy your book! It sounds awesome hahaha
    Great post!
