What book would you make everyone read?
Captive Prince. You have NO idea how incredibly intense this series is. Sexual tension everywhere. Damen and Laurent are my favorite gay couple on this earth. The first book is a tiny bit slow, but it’s a character-driven story, so the characters are the ones who will win your heart. You need not hear more: READ THIS BOOK NOW. Or a curse will befall you.
What would you abolish in book construction?
I hate when synopsises say that things like ”Game of Thrones meets Divergent in this enthralling new series by the New York Times bestseller…” because it just makes readers expect some things and then they end up being disappointed. I don’t mind someone comparing books to other books in their reviews, because that’s a personal opinion, but when it’s in a synopsis, it’s said like it’s a fact when it shouldn’t be one.
What author would you commission to write you any book?
This is such a hard question. It’s like asking what our favorite author is. I love Cassandra Clare’s world-buildings, C.S. Pacat’s characters, Jennifer L. Armentrout’s writing and Ally Carter’s action scenes, but I believe characters to be the most important element in a book, so I’d say C.S. Pacat. Please do write more. She’s amazing. I did two interviews with her, one for Captive Prince and another one for Kings Rising.
What book would you demote to the library basement to make room for new books?
I already did that. I took all of my manga and put them in a box, because I’m not the type to reread entire series of manga, but when I do want to, at least I know where they are. So I took all of my Love Hina and Maid Sama off my main bookshelves and hid them under my bed. But they won’t be in the darkness for long, for I must move out in two weeks.
What cover artist would you commission to make a mural?
Interesting question. I never in my life thought about that. I guess the artist who designed the covers for the Throne of Glass series, because they’re stunning and have this kickassy vibe to them, you know? Definitely that artist.
What character’s face would you put on a coin?
Lola’s sexy beast!
Like Bea, it would be a character from the Harry Potter series. Wait for it, wait for it… SNAPE!!! I love him so much. I mean, I know he’s an antihero and all, but I kind of really want to tame him, ahah. He’s a sexy beast. Actually, he’s pretty calm, and I like that about him. I feel like I could talk to him about anything and he’d just stare at me with those intense eyes. Fun imaginary moments!
What book would you award the “Ruler of Books” 2016 Prize to?
Captive Prince book three! Kings Rising! I waited for this book for two years, so when the publisher offered me a finished copy of it in advance of its release, I was so excited I felt like I had drunk ten coffees! I was so, so, so excited and the book didn’t disappoint (not that I expected it to). Again, READ THIS SERIES.
