Hello again- it’s been what, a few hours? Did you miss me? Just here to conclude my Q&A in a post that talks an awful lot about cats. Anyhoo, please do check out all the lovely people who asked questions and feel free to check out parts 1 and 2.
I would ask you if you’ve ever been to the states?
Sadly only as a layover (and btw my only impression was that the security is super strict, they took my fingerprints just for the privilege of going from one end of the airport to the other and grilled me about whether I wanted to stay forever…)
Is orangutan your favourite animal?
Well… This confession might get me in trouble, but my actual favourite animal is an ocelot. And also CATSSS in general
Which makes sense if you think about it, cos it’d be silly if it was an orangutan- like a human whose fave animal was a human…
Have you ever been to a book expo and/or met one of your favourite authors?
I’ve never had the chance to go to a book expo, BUT I was actually really lucky as a child that quite a few authors came to the schools I went to- the best one was the author of the Noughts and Crosses series Malorie Blackman
Also, can I come visit?
Haha sure, if you’re ever in London hit me up and we’ll go for tea 😉
42 is the meaning of life eh? Why 42?
Hehe and yes, Daley kindly answered, but just to clarify- 42 is the meaning of life according to Douglas Adams
What is your deepest, darkest secret? The one you swore a blood oath to never reveal. Because we want to know.
*the following is to be said in Valley Girl accent*
“And we’re obviously WAY more important than some blood oath, duh!”
Hahaha well I have to confess now and this relates to my mentioning of CATSSS before- I have been harbouring a fugitive- meet Cecil the Lion:
I am so full of pride that I managed to keep it a secret for this long, but I suppose the cat’s out of the bag now… (yes I did just share that so I could make that joke #noshame)
What countries / cities would you like to visit ?
I’d really really like to go to Athens is at the top of my list right now (so maybe I’ll get to go in a few years 😉 )
Not really a question but would you share MORE about your WIP? Like, a snippet, a sentence or anything?!
Haha I’m so stingy with info about my WIP, I just get too nervous about sharing anything, but here’s a pithy line from the last chapter I edited:
“Power was a treasure trove and all politics was piracy”
What’s your favourite animal ?
JK but as you may have noticed from my early cat-related comments, I do really like CATTTS, specifically ocelots.
What’s one thing that other people do that you can’t stand?
Ask me if I’ve been blessed by the beautiful light that is JC… and by that I mean Jeremy Corbyn (hello Corbynistas- please can you stop spamming me- thanks!) So yeah, annoying political spammers…
Did you think you’d blog for so long?
To be honest, I *never* thought I would fall in love with blogging like this. When I first started I was blogging I wrote a post a month and just thought I’d review books every so often.
If you were shipwrecked on a desert island and the waves were about to wash away the complete collection of Terry Pratchett’s books and you only had time to save one, which would it be?
OH GOD SO HARD!! I’m gonna go with Mort, but I’m so tempted to say Going Postal or arghhh see what I mean, hard!
Also, if you weren’t an orang-utan what other creature would you like to be? (mooses are pretty awesome)
Hahaha moose are awesome! I think this post might be getting feline heavy- so I’m gonna pick a penguin. I mean check out their waddle 😉
If you had to compare yourself to a fictional character, who would it be and why?
Well I always think something of a cross between Luna Lovegood and Alice
Do you have a favorite recipe for bananas?
I like banana bread but I am a horrible horrible baker.
What is something that the blogging community does not know about you?
Haha today is just full of confessions, isn’t it? Hmm some people are actually surprised to find out I like dresses (oh and I’m also a girl, not everyone knows that)
What book describes you best? (Is it a particular character, the cover or the story?) Oh and it would be super cool if you could draw something for your super reveal post!
Hard question! I think I find more in common with characters, rather than stories or covers. I’ve already mentioned Luna and Alice, but I think someone else who I really relate to is Isla from Isla and the Happily Ever After. And even though the story doesn’t really describe my life (I mean, there is a distinct absence of bananas) I feel like I’d have done *a lot* of the same things in her position.
(I also hope I fulfilled the drawing requirement 😉 )
So that’s all for today- hope you enjoyed these Q&As- I certainly enjoyed making them! And now I want to know what is *your* favourite animal? And how do you feel about CATSSS? Let me know in the comments!
