Today I’m going to introduce you to a new bookblogger! Cassie (20) from Leaf-Lit lives in Australia. She is currently in her fourth year of her degree in Communication & Arts. Allow me to introduce you to bookworm Cassie.
When did your love for books start?
“There’s a couple of things that have contributed to my love of reading. The first being that my mum would always read to my brother and I every night before we went to bed when we were little. I grew up loving stories and the written word. The second thing is that my brother stopped playing with me because he became obsessed with reading. I was cranky and bored and decided: why not try reading too? Here we are now, both of us forever bookworms!”
What’s your favorite book?
“That’s the most difficult question ever! I don’t think I could ever have a favorite, simply because so many books have impacted me differently. Some honorable mentions are the Harry Potter series (an obvious one), The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater and Pride & Prejudice.”
Your favorite place to read?
“Outside in a hanging chair, on my veranda on a cool morning with the sun on my back. Or curled up in a comfy chair with a cup of tea within easy reach.”
What’s the best book of 2017 this far?
“I love Truthwitch and Bone Gap. But the book that has really stuck with me is Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. That book looks into the reality of animal agriculture. As a vegetarian, and general animal lover, it resonated deeply with me and I wish that everyone could read it!”
Worst book you’ve read?
“I honestly can’t think of a book that I hate because I would probably have stopped reading it. However, a book series that I have disliked lately would have to be the Throne of Glass series. I know that it is a favorite with most people, but I found it really problematic and I was getting very frustrated by it.”
This is a hard one: favorite book quote?
“I adore quotes so much and I hoard them obsessively. One of my very favorites is from The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien: “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
