Weekend Reads #63: Q&A Announcement

As announced in my Addams Family Book Tag post, I recently hit 800 subscribers and that number keeps growing! I’m really happy about this and I’m really thankful for all those who have subscribed, commented, and interacted with my blog in some way. To show my appreciation, I’ve decided to do a

Q&A!! πŸ˜€

I don’t share much about myself on here so this would be a good way for y’all to get to know me better, though I am a bit nervous about revealing more about myself.

I’ll leave this announcement up for about two weeks or so. You can post your questions in the comments section below, or, if you’re not on WordPress, you can send them to me via Twitter (my Twitter handle is @ZezeeWithBooks) or by email (zezee112@outlook.com).

With that said, this Q&A is now open. Go ahead and post your questions below. πŸ˜›

What I’m reading this weekend:

I’m still readingΒ Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb with Emily at Embuhlee liest. I’m enjoying the story so far though I don’t like any of the characters much. The world is interesting and I’m curious about the Rain Wilds because it’s mentioned but we don’t know much about it yet.

I picked up M.R. Carey’sΒ The Girl With All the Gifts on Friday and am already hooked on the story because it has made me so curious about what is going on and who the little girl is. I also wonder if she’s locked up or being protected from something or both.

I also startedΒ Superman: Red Son on Friday. It’s a comic book that reimagines the superhero as aΒ member of the Soviet Union rather than the U.S. So instead of being born on a farm in Kansas, Superman is instead born on a collective farm in the Ukraine. It was written by Mark Millar with art by Dave Johnson, Kilian Plunkett, Andrew Robinson, Walden Wong, and Paul Mounts. I’ve only read a few panels so far but I look forward to an intriguing story.

And that’s it for this weekend. What have you been up to? And remember to leave your questions below! πŸ™‚

  1. wow, congratulations on the 800 subscribers. Your blog is amazing. Q. I notice that you like diverse books. What is it that draws you to these books and why do you think diversity in literature is important?

  2. Congrats on reaching 800 subscribers! πŸ™‚ And I know the feeling about being nervous about a Q&A post. I felt the same way earlier this year when I did mine, but it turned out to be a lot of fun.

    OK, questions for you…

    – If you could be any animal, what would you choose? Why?
    – Do you like any books that seemed to have slipped under other people’s radars? If so, pick one and tell us why you’d recommend it.
    – What is your favorite way of relaxing after a long or stressful day?


  3. Yay for 800. Hope the numbers keep growing. How do you find time to interact and create meaningful friendships here? (That’s my q btw). ^_^


  4. Woah, congratulations! 800 followers is a very impressive milestone! And well-deserved, too. πŸ™‚

    Oh, you’re reading The Liveship Traders series? I bought the first book a while back but haven’t had a chance to read it. It sounds really good! Will anticipate your review if you’re planning to share it on your blog.


    1. Thanks Naz! Yea, am reading it now n loving it. I think it’s better than Assassin’s Apprentice actually.

      Was that the question? I think I might mess up n answer the questions here if I’m not careful, lol.


  5. Congratulations! I’m not surprised your blog’s so popular; you’ll be past 1000 in no time, I’m sure. πŸ˜€

    Man, I really need to go back and reread all those old Robin Hobb books. I read the Farseer trilogy shortly after it came out, and I think I made it through the first two Liveship Traders books, but I was a tiny thing and didn’t appreciate them as much as I can now, as an adult. It’d be interesting to see how much my perception of the books have changed since then. Anyway, I hope you start engaging with the characters more, asap!

    Hm, questions. What is a book that severely disappointed you, and how exactly would you have improved it (assuming you magically transformed into its writer or editor)? I’d love to hear as many gritty details as you care to share!


    1. Lol at gritty details. Thanks Liam!
      And yea, definitely hop back into the Robin Hobb world. It’s exciting there, especially with the pirates, sea serpents, liveships, and mysterious Rain Wilds (whatever that is; the story hasn’t yet revealed much about it). I forgot to mention above that I do like Amber, though she’s only appeared briefly so far in the book.

    1. Thanks! πŸ™‚
      I forgot about Amber! She is the exception. So far, I’m at the point where Althea talks to her for the first time and I immediately like her, especially since she seems so mysterious.
      I’m also slowly warming to Althea.

  6. 800 and growing is awesome! congrats many πŸ˜‰

    hmm… q&a… because you say you don’t share much about yourself, I’ll keep it book related and won’t ask you to reveal your deepest, darkest secrets! πŸ˜‚

    – if you owned a bookshop what would you call it and what would it look like inside (apart from the bookshelves of course, get creative πŸ˜‰ )
    – name your favorite classic book?
    – if the world came to an end and you could only save one book, which book and why?
