Way back in November, I was tagged by Meg @ Meg’s Magical Musings to do the Ideal Inspiration tag. The tag came during such a chaotic time during the Blogmas planning, so I am now only just getting round to it and getting it up. So, sorry Meg that it took so long, but better late than never!

What is an unpopular standalone or series you think deserves more attention?
A stand-alone that I think definitely deserves more attention is What I Lost by Alexandra Ballard. What I Lost follows sixteen-year old Elizabeth who has an eating disorder. Her disorder has gotten to a point where she has been admitted to a treatment centre for girls with eating disorders. It is a really interesting book to read as I have found with other eating disorder novels, there is a lot out out-patient treatment or no treatment at all. But What I Lost offers a different perspective and gives us a look into in-patient treatments. I think it definitely deserves more attention than it gets.
If you could live in one of the fantasy worlds, what would it be?
Right now, the only place I want to be is in the Night Court from A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas.
If a minor character ends up as the main character of a book, who would you choose?
I’m not actually the type of person who usually ends up loving the side characters more. I usually like the main characters the most, so this is going to take me a while to think of one.
I think I am going to go with Leon’s brother Richie from The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary. I would just love to hear more about his life and his perspective on what occurs during the novel. I think that would be a really interesting read.
If you could combine different literary characters into a book, who would you choose?
This is a really interesting question. I think I would put Eliza from Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia and Cath from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, just because I think they would make awesome graphic novels together and I would really love to see it.
What character would you love to spend time with?
There are so many characters that I love and adore and would want to spend time with. Most recently, I would have to say that I think I would want to talk to Yeva from Hunted by Meagan Spooner. I just recently read and reviewed that book, and I just can’t stop thinking about it. I would love to sit down with Yeva and have her tell me all of the stories about the magic in the land.
