If you didn't know, this month is National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention MonthIt is a designated month to raise awareness to the atrocious forms of social injustice, specifically human trafficking, that are happening worldwide.

A-Z Bookish Questions - a tag


So here’s a fun list of bookish questions, from A to Z. I wrote this when I was almost done with my last final, deeming that time appropriate to take a break and fill it out. I'm posting it now to welcome in the new year with jolly post on books. These questions also helped me compile a list of books to read with all the free time I was supposed to have from Christmas to the New Year. Although in reality, I didn't have much free time outside of work, volunteering, planning for school, get-togethers and parties, and so forth. But I do now have a splendid list of books and essays to read this year. 

A-Z BOOKISH QUESTIONS

Author you've read the most books from: I think I can safely say Dorothy L. Sayers or C.S. Lewis. It’s currently a toss-up between them both.

Best sequel ever: Hmm, off the top of my head I'll go with Ishmael and Self Raised by E.D.E.N. Southworth.

Currently reading: Just picked up a new book from the Library called Gentleman Captain by J.D. Davies. It’s a historical fiction tale taking place in 1622, in Great Britain. Matthew Quinton, the son of a royalist family, is the protagonist. I hardly read fiction pieces, but I make an exception when it is a historical fiction piece having to do with wars or the sea (splendidly, this tale has to do with both).

Drink of choice while reading:  Hot or cold tea, depending on the day.
