Hey, Michelle! Thanks for agreeing to be interviewed.
Before we start, why don’t you tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Michelle but I also go by Spiderg1rl. I balance my reading with plenty of TV and games. When not doing those things I’m probably at work or relaxing with my husband.
So, where have books made you want to visit?
Narnia, I would love to visit Narnia. There are tons of real and non real places but I always come back to Narnia, especially the beauty from when it was being created. Wouldn’t you want to see the birth of a world?
It would be pretty magical to see!
Is there anything you won’t read?
Not that I’ve really come across yet. Like anyone there are some books I don’t really go for compared to others favoring some genres over others. My to read list is so long I’ve not really breached a topic I found I couldn’t read.
Which book character would you most like to meet?
I don’t know really. To be fair that answer would probably change fairly regularly but I would love to meet Peter Parker, yes Spider-man. Not a big surprise given the first question but I would probably have a new person I want to meet every week. Last week I wanted to meet Sally just so I could help her. This week I’m reading about a girl turned into a vampire but I would like to meet one of the vampires that have been around through much of our histories that could tell me stories we would never find in the history books.
Where is your favourite reading spot?
Either sat on the sofa or on the bed. I do often read at work or walking home but it’s never as good as when actually at home.
I find that I can’t get lost in a book like I can when I’m home!
What is the worst book you’ve ever read?
Now that is a tough one. I don’t know because I’ve either purged it from my head or naturally it’s been forgotten by some truly amazing books.
Do you eat or drink when reading? If so, what?
All the time. If I’m really into a book I even eat dinner or lunch when reading. 90% of the time it’s snacks, fig rolls, crisps, chocolate and some diet Pepsi. After all I need to keep my energy up for all that page turning.
Do you listen to music when you read or prefer silence?
I rarely listen to music anymore but the TV is pretty much always on. Being raised in a house with tons going on I find myself able to keep up with both a book and a show/movie at the same time. It’s a skill and I have no idea how I can help others gain it. I’m sorry 🙂
I, too, possess this skill! Very useful, isn’t it?
So, we’ve done the bookish questions. Now it’s time for the silly questions!
Would you rather having to say everything on your mind or never being able to speak again?
I think for my families sake I would say never speak again. I already tell my brother he drives me crazy sometimes he doesn’t need to know how much lol
What is your biggest fashion regret?
I am like Andrea in the Devil Wears Prada, fashion means little to me so I’m actually probably screwing up on a daily basis. If only I looked like Anne Hathaway then all would be forgiven anyway.
If you had a time machine, where would you go and why?
It would be so cool to go back in time and spend a day with each of my ancestors. I know so little of my past beyond my parents and grandparents but at some point my dad’s side left Germany or Austria for America it would be cool to know why. Also somewhere down the line on my mothers side a (I have no idea how many great-great) grandmother was a lady and gave up her future title and inheritance to marry a coal miner. It sounds like an interesting ancestry and that’s surely just the start.
What is the funniest thing that’s ever happened to you?
Lets see, funny…
I don’t usually get funny things happen to me, instead they are usually miserable. I can tell you however the last time I laughed quite hard actually. I was really nervous on my wedding day a few months back and my fella was trying to put my wedding ring on and well I must have had a warm hand because it just wouldn’t go on. I burst out into giggles and before we knew it the whole room was laughing, even the registrar was laughing. Eventually the room stopped laughing and my fella managed to get my ring on my finger. It certainly broke the nerves we were both feeling and thankfully everyone had a good day remembering the giggle fest in the middle of the ceremony.
It’s always good that you can both laugh
at with each other!
If you were stuck on an island and could only take three things with you, what would you take and why?
I’d take my husband, he’s not a thing but I think we would both be happier if he was there… Actually he may not be but I would be. I’d take a Kindle with a full hard drive and I’d take some sort of crazy unending generator that would keep it going till it breaks or we get saved. Then I would hope the husband was given 3 things too so he wouldn’t go crazy whilst I’m reading all day.
How lucky are you and why?
I’m fairly unlucky really but I’m always hoping that will turn around one day.
What is the weirdest thing that someone has said to you while you’ve been reading?
My husband is always trying to get my attention whilst I’m reading. He usually says things that make sense to him and what he can see on his tablet but I have no idea what is going on.
