We don’t need a rocket scientist to know that we’re talking about the most awesome book blogger in the universe.
Juuuussst Kidding…I WOULD have won that title but it’s a fact that I’m an Ice cream advertising blog so I’ll have to give this one to Cait. *grumbles*
BUT ON TO MY EXCITEMENT. If you don’t know Cait’s blog…would you like to see a doctor? Are you alive? Are you living? (spoiler: you’re not) *squints* No, no I’m pretty sure you’re a dead corpse.Why aren’t you buried yet?*strokes chin*
WELL YES, I am only 97% excited and then 963838% exploding with all the emotions so don’t mind me. I am sane. When I scarily asked Cait if I could interview her I thought she was going to release her mini troop of books and stab me. Or you know, be a fire-breathing dragon and kill me like that. Much quicker. 10/10 recommended.
But onto the point. I. AM. EXCITED. And you know why? because this is CAIT we’re talking about. Cait who has read every single book before you even knew it existed. Cait who writes books in the same time you could say ‘ice cream’. Cait who accidentally reads 200 books per year. Cait who takes the most gorgeous pictures which put your face to shame. YES, this is Cait, the book blogger queen and I AM EXCITED.
So, if you haven’t guessed (THE TITLE) I’m going to be interviewing Cait and wonder if I like to ramble (AHEM I DO) so without further ado…! THE INTERVIEW. (that rhymed. I’m a poet and I didn’t even KNOW it)
1. INTRODUCE YOURSELF, VULCAN QUEEN
Hello, all! I’m Cait and I blog over at paperfury.com about wild things such as books, writing, cake, and whether or not marmalade is evil. (Spoiler: it is.) I live in Australia and don’t believe the vicious rumours about all the spiders. Oh yes, they are simply ginormous, but we’re all friends! We invite them out to dinner, play croquet, exchange scone recipes, that sort of thing. I also love reading all things YA, I play the piano, and I want to be an author when I grow up.
2. ONE PLACE YOU’D TRAVEL TO FROM A BOOK
I’d definitely go to Red London from the A Darker Shade of Magic series! It’s so magical and richly amazing and I’m sure I could be a good magician. I could at least wear a fabulous red coat??
3. ONE BLOGGER FRIEND YOU WANT TO MEET
I have no idea! I have so many lovely friends online!
4. PERKS OF BEING AUSTRALIAN
Obviously exchanging scone recipes with the spiders, as mentioned before. Also, Australians have these delicious things called lamingtons which are basically chocolate cake and coconut and they are the building blocks of our country. And I can’t forget the glory that is Aussie YA! It’s a bit hard to get outside of Australia, but we have some intensely fantastic authors here like Jay Kristoff, Steph Bowe, Cath Crowley, and Melina Marchetta.
5. THE UPSIDES OF BOOK BLOGGING
Gathering a small army of dedicated book lovers, paying them in promises of cake, and then marching them at dawn to smite THE DARKNESS.
…And also meeting people who flail over the books I love is nice too. #MinorDetails
6. FANGIRL-WORTHY BOOKS
Anything was written by Maggie Stiefvater! She is my #1 author and I’m ridiculously in love with her complex characters, magical and whimsical worlds, slight creeptastic vibes, and addictively beautiful writing. Excuse me while I just GUSH FOREVER.
7. RELEASE DATES FOR YOUR BOOKS
I’m looking to publish traditionally, so it’s not up to me! There are so many factors beyond my control, but fingers crossed for someday, eh!??
8. FAVOURITE WORD
9. AN AUTHOR YOU WANT TO MEET
I’m wildly shy so meeting authors aren’t on top of my priority list, I’ll be honest! I do think listening to Maggie Stiefvater talk on writing would be amazing though. I’d love to pick up tips on (a) how to be an exquisite writer and (b) how to be just so fabulous all of the time.
10. PLANS TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD
Mostly by talking about food and pretty books a lot so people don’t even notice when I’ve snatched the planets out from underneath them. You know Jupiter? It’s mine now. The people there haven’t even noticed yet because they’re still eating cake. Earth is next.
To Be or Not To Be round:
1) Cake or Books? THIS IS CRUEL AND I PROTEST ADAMANTLY BECAUSE YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT EITHER
2) Fantasy or Contemporary? Fantasy 100%!
3)Reading or Writing? Reading. ❤ Writing is my everything, but I couldn’t write if I didn’t read.
4)Blogging or Tweeting? Blogging! I have too many words to say.
5) Dragons or Taking Over The World? I’ll take over the world with dragons (and yes I realise I’m breaking the rules for this round of questions but I’m a notorious rebel. What can I say.)
A GIF THAT DESCRIBE YOU –>
Was this hilarious or was this hilarious? Do you love Cait’s blog (of course you do)? Where would go if you could travel to a book setting? And what author would you choose to meet? Do you think marmalade is evil? And do you like spiders?
