Question Answers:
1. What sparked your passion for reading?
I alwayss read as a child from books like Animal Ark to Dolphin Diaries and all that type of books but what really started my YA reading crazy fanatics was Twilight. I saw the film in the cinema, found out it was a book and just went from there and here I am!

2. What is your favourite reading spot?
Hmmm, well the place I mostly read is in my room on my computer chair so that must be it!

3. What is your favourite cover art ever?
Too hard of a question..... but I absolutely love this cover recently!
Days of Blood and Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #2)

4. How do you deal with your TBR shelf?
I don't... I have all my TBR organised on Goodreads, I've recently made a TBR jar that I pick one book a month from. I now have my TBR books seperate from my read books which gives me motivation to read what I have as I am really picky about keeping series and same authors together so this nearly drives me crazy but it is nice to see how many books I have left to read. I also try to minimize my physical TBR by not buying as much books but I haven't succeeded in that yet...

5. Best book you read in the past year? (No rereads)
The best book I've read in the past year, hmmm, can I pick more than one? No... then it'll have to be, so hard.... -
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

6. Who is your favourite booktuber?
I actually have a lot of favourites but one of those favourites is whittynovels!

7. First book you ever read?
I have no idea... Not the first book ever. But Twilight was the first YA book I read and the first book that started my Goodreads journey too.

8. What is your go to reading snack?
Anything with chocolate in it!

9. Why is reading important to you?
A lot, it is a way of entertainment, escape, an addiction and just something that I thoroughly enjoy.

10. Where would you be without reading?
Honestly I don't know. I don't know what I'd be doing with all my time. I'd probably have a lot more money but other than that I have no idea. It's such a big part of my life, I can't imagine what I'd be doing without it. 

11. What is your favourite thing about yourself? (Not book related but still important to know).
Oh God, I hate these questions. They are even worse than the tell me about yourself questions. I love that I'm a compassionate person and animal lover.
