Book Tag – The Five Ws

Hi all! This is a tag I created for a little book-ish introspection. Enjoy and pass along ๐Ÿ™‚

Who | Who is an author you’d love to have a one-on-one with?

John Lindqvist

John A. Lindqvist – I’d want to try to get some insight into how his brain works, because his stories are so dark, with such a strong element of humanity/monstrosity. How his characters relate to the world fascinates me, so I’d want to see how he relates to the world.

What | What genre/style do you most often gravitate to?


Horror/Supernatural – I’m a sucker for a good monster metaphor and any imagery that is a bit gothic or noir-ish.

Where | Where do you prefer to read?

Not my actual couch

My couch. I have a great couch.

When | What time of day do you prefer to read?


Evening, after dinner. It’s a nice way to end a busy work day or start a relaxing night in.

Why | Why is your favourite book your favourite book?

Kindred is my favourite book because it uses a sci-fi element (time travel) to explore a really dark part of history (slavery) that I had otherwise only really experienced from a distance (history books, slave narratives, etc).

Bonus: How | How do you go about selecting what book you’ll read next?

I’m not good about keeping up with my TBR (as you can see). I’m usually growing it, not shrinking it. What I read next depends on what I’m currently reading. Do I never want it to end, or will I need a serious breather from an aspect of it? Then, I’ll browse my extensive TBR list (highest-rated to lowest), book blogs and Goodreads recommendations until I find something that is either similar or in stark contrast.


Thanks for the read. I’ll tag a few people here, but as usual, no pressure! I hope if you do it, you enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚
