30. Have you ever finished a book that rendered you so emotionally unstable you couldn’t start another one for a few days?
Oh yes! It happens more often than it should probably :D
18. How many books (approximately) do you own?
Oh my. 200-300, in my room? Not sure about the rest of the house, though. Loads :O
9. Who would you cast as the main characters of a movie adaptation of your favourite book?
Lots of them already have adaption… But in The Likeness - Clarie Foy as Cassie, Simon Woods as Sam, Jarred Harris as Frankie although he might be a bit old, Ben Whishaw or Harry Lloyd or Harry Treadway as Daniel; there are more, but these are the main ones. In Gemma Doyle trilogy, Felicity has to be Freya Mavor and someone close enough to Rachel Hurd-Wood as Gemma, as she herself is too old. I have no idea about Fallen Angels, that one is tricky to turn into a film…
3. Is there a quote from a book that has inspired you/changed the way you view things? If so, what is the quote?
Certainly. There are more, but the most obvious choice would be the quote I used in my blog’s name:
”There’s a Spanish proverb,” he said, “that’s always fascinated me. “Take what you want and pay for it, says God.’” The words fell into the silence under the ivy like cool pebbles into water, sank without a ripple. ”I don’t believe in God,” Daniel said, “but that principle seems, to me, to have a divinity of its own; a kind of blazing purity. What could be simpler, or more crucial? You can have anything you want, as long as you accept that there is a price and that you will have to pay it" - The Likeness, Tana French
8. What’s the coolest name you have ever seen in a book? Would you name your offspring after said fictional character?
One of the coolest, unique, ones would be Bellatrix and Indigo. I would, I always actually wanted to have a daughter named Catherine, after Wuthering Heights character.
17. Do you have a stack of books you need to read? How many are there?
Always! I am taking three with me on a trip tomorrow and there are at least two waiting for me when I get back!
29. What’s your favourite book turned movie?
The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Angela’s Ashes!
14. Have you ever stolen insults from books and used them in real life situations? If so, how did that work out for you?
I actually use quite often ‘You filthy little mudblood!’ and it works on two ways - either person looks confused if he/she did not by some chance read HP, or they are mildly offended by it, if they did ;)
