|Here is the wonderful Pili! You may notice some of the other bloggers as well. :) This is from Pili's Twitter profile picture.|
1. Tell us one fact about yourself.
Pili: I think of myself more in terms of bookwyrm than bookworm because the way I hoard books is more closely related to Smaug's love for his treasure than any reasonable human should! ;)
2. Have you always been an avid reader? What book(s) got you into reading?
Pili: Always! I loved reading since my dad taught me how to read because he was growing tired of reading the same story to me every night! I had to go for medical check ups often as a child and my mum always rewarded good behaviour by buying me fairy tale stories at my request!
3. Do you have any in real life friends who enjoy reading?
Pili: One of my besties is really a big bookworm too, but not to my obsessed level and even less now that she's had a baby. Another bestie also loves reading and uses her lunch hour at work to read on her Kindle! And my ex-bf is also a big reader and bookworm, which sucks since he still has all our Agatha Christie books!
4. What is a book you would recommend to everyone even if they normally don't enjoy reading?
Pili: Hmmm, that's a very tough question... I don't think there's a book that anyone and everyone can enjoy. I got my nephews to give The Hunger Games a try because they loved the movies and they really don't read at all. I usually try to know the person a lil before I can recommend a book.
5. What are your top 3 favorite books you've read so far this year?
Pili: Three? A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, 5 to 1 by Holly Bodger and Illuminae by Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff! Picking just three was SUPER hard because I've read so many amazing books this year!
6. Do you have any 2016 releases you're dying to get your hands on?
Pili: Oh yes!! Way too many I must confess! The Forbidden Orchid by Sharon Biggs Waller, Vicarious and Girl Against The World by Paula Stokes, A Gathering of Darkness by V.E. Schwab, The Mirror King by Jodi Meadows, The Shadow Queen by C J Redwine, The Great Hunt by Wendy Higgins, The Star Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi... SO MANY!!!
7. What are some of your favorite hobbies other than reading?
Pili: My other big passions aside from reading are travelling, baking (sometimes book inspired decorated cupcakes) and photography!
8. Would you rather have all paperback books and no hardbacks or all hardbacks and no paperbacks?
Pili: Oh dear... would the books that are published only in paperback disappear from my shelves or could those be in hardback too? Because I don't want to lose any of my books! But if I had to choose, I'm all for hardbacks! *pets the pretties*
And we're done!
Let's all say bye to Pili. :)
