Answering Rach’s questions:
1- What are you currently reading?
‘How to change your mind’ by Michael Pollan. So far i’m loving it, its about how psychodelics have been used to treat various mental and physical health problems, by inducing mystical, life altering experiences that allow the individual to change their perspective on life. Its not my typical read, but its a fabulous change from the fiction i usually read.
2- What do you enjoy most about writing or blogging?
I love the fact that its almost like a diary of sorts. In it i am able to document my opinions on different books, cool vegan recipes, travelling etc. I also love how its allowed me to connect with people I wouldn’t ordinarily be able to.
3- Where is your happy place and why?
Ooh thats a hard question to answer. I have to say its either on the yoga mat or in bed with a good book.
4- Favourite book or film trope?
A good twist -who doesn’t love a game changer.
5- Your going away; which book, song and film would you take with you?
Under rose tainted skies (because i really want to re-read it).
I don’t think i could pick one song but I’m loving Tom Grennan’s new album; lightening matches.
The greatest showman – because it fits all moods and lifts the soul!
6- What is your least favourite genre?
I’d have to say sci-fi. I recently read Michael faber’s ‘the book of strange new things’ and i really didn’t enjoy it, so its put me off reading this genre again.
7- Which country would you most like to visit?
My list is endless. I’m currently planning trips to krakow, barcelona and Vienna, but i also really wanna visit Budapest and Prague sometime soon.
8- Which book would you love to see adapted?
More than this but Patrick Ness – feel like it would have a cool ‘stranger things’ vibe.
9- Your hosting a dinner party; which 5 famous people (alive or dead) would you invite?
Assuming this can involve people who are dead: Freud (because who wouldn’t invite him?!), Sam smith and Adele (they would make the best party ever), Ali Wong and Greg Davies (my fave comedians).
10- Whose auto/biography would you most like to read?
Its a memoir but I’m gonna count it: Girl in the Woods by Aspen Mathis. I recently listened to her on the ‘wild ideas’ podcast and she was so inspiring. After loving ‘Wild’ by Cheryl Strayed I’m obsessed with books on hiking/ personal development.
