All right, let’s dive into the questions!
What movie have you watched recently? Was it good?
I hardly ever watch movies lately… but oh, wait! I have! It was Ip Man featuring a Hong-Kong Kung-fu actor, Donnie Yen. I just looooove him. His execution, especially kicks are just amazing! In this movie, the fighting style is slightly different and I don’t get to see many kicks for which he is widely known… but this movie reminds me that he is soo good as an actor not only as an action star ❤
What food would you recommend everyone to try at least once?
Geeez, tough question…I’m not a foodie!! Lol but let’s see… I’m from Japan, so maybe Tempura, I think?? It’s basically deep-fried veggies and seafood with light and crispy batter made of eggs, flour, and cold water. It’s one of the most popular traditional Japanese dishes and you should definitely give this a try. It’s one of my favorite. Most people usually dip Tempura in a special sauce called ‘tsuyu,’ but I personally love to eat with a bit of salt. That won’t ruin the crispness of the batter, and you can better appreciate the flavors that the ingredients have.
What are some of your hobbies?
Crocheting, (occasionally) baking?? Oh, I hardly ever bake bread now, but I used to be crazy about baking bread, like bagels, chocolate chips bread… here are some pics of the bread that I baked.
What’s your beverage of choice?
Coffee! Or tea, occasionally.
Do you collect anything other than books?
Decorative small objects that give off a seasonal vibe. Something I can decorate my room with. To elaborate on this, I often buy tons of pumpkin themed candles or figurines when Halloween rolls around (I bought a mug cup last year) and then I start buying lots of Christmas themed items right after Halloween lol
What is your favorite season?
Fall season, hands down! I get to wear one of my favorite colors, Brown a lot. And the weather is much color in Fall. I easily get hot and sweaty, so summer is the worst!!! Winter is good, but it might be a bit too cold (it’s totally fine though).
What do you spend most of your time doing?
No doubt, reading! Give me a whole day on which I get to spend reading. That’ll make me a happy girl 🙂
What is your favorite book to movie adaptation?
Again, I haven’t watched a movie for like ages… I haven’t watched it yet, but I think Everything Everything seems good judging from its trailer! Oh, no, wait! I don’t know what you guys think about this… but Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone! I watched this movie looong before I read the book, so I was mesmerized by the Wizardly world ❤
Tell us something about yourself?
…eh, what do you guys want to know about me??

What is your favorite book of 2017 so far?
As of today, hands-down, The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, but I also looooooove History Is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera. These are my faves ❤
