Questions by Malliumpkin:

What was the biggest influence for you starting your blog?

This is funny: I decided to open this blog because, when I reviewed English books in Italian, on my Italian blog, all the authors keep saying to me that they (reasonably) doesn’t understand Italian. I was incredibly sad. I naively thought that my work will help to spread the love for these books even in my country, and that they will be happy to know that their work is loved all over the world. Most of my Italian readers don’t read English books, so I decided to try and open an English Blog. I thought it will help me to better write in English too. Now that I have it, I’ve learned that authors don’t like to read reviews, even if they are positive.

What is your favourite season?

Fall/Autumn without a doubt. Unfortunately, I have a tendency to suffer extreme heat or extreme cold. So I usually suffer during summer, thanks to mosquitoes too, and during winter, even if I like winter more than summer. Because there aren’t mosquitoes in winter!

Also, there’s something special when all the leaves turn red and yellow. I love autumn.

If you could only live in one place for the rest of your life, where would it be and why?

This is easy: Whitby, UK. I will say the UK in general, I spend most of my holidays here, I love the food, the bookshops, the landscapes, but my gothic (and Dracula’s obsessed) heart belongs to Whitby.

Here’s a photo I take this summer. Yes, it was August.

 What are the three items that are most precious to you?

My copy of The ocean at the end of the lane signed by Neil Gaiman; my pendant inspired by The Raven by Poe; the photos of my pets that are no longer with me.

What are your two biggest accomplishments for 2019 that you’re proud of?

I’m proud of how many followers I have gained this year on this blog and I’m proud of my new diploma that I received after finishing one of the online course I follow.

If you could have any mythical creatures as a pet, what would it be and why?

I would say a dragon, because, you know…is a dragon! But I fell in love with the Thunderbird from Fantastic beasts.


What is one thing you wish to accomplish before the end of 2019?

I just want to live like that, without more drama. It will be fantastic.
