Kayla’s Questions

Where was the last place you traveled, and when was it?

The last place that I traveled to would be Japan. It is a very recent trip and I am still currently in Tokyo. ๐Ÿ˜€ I went to Tokyo and Osaka to see hanami (cherry blossoms). ย I have always wanted to visit Japan since I’m an anime fanatic and I love Japanese culture. In addition, Japanese food is really good and the things that they sell there are really cute too. โค

How many physical books do you own?

I own a huge amount of books and I’m too lazy to go and count it. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ A brief estimation would be around 200 ~ 250 books including children, young adults and adults books. ๐Ÿ˜ก

Under what circumstances would you DNF a book?

I will DNF a book when it is extremely slow and boring. There are times where some books have plots which are extremely slow placed and I don’t really enjoy reading mundane books. If a book was to put me to sleep, I will DNF it. Another circumstance would be if I get really uncomfortable or disturbed while reading the novel. Usually, those novel deals with sensitive issues and I couldn’t bring myself to continue on reading it.

What was the last movie you saw in theaters? Did you enjoy it?


The most recent movie I watched in the cinemas would be Koe no Katachi (i.e. A Silent Voice) by Kyoto animations. The movieย follows a deaf girl called Shoko Nishimiya and a guy called Shoya Ishida. Ishida bullied Nishimiya when they were in elementary school and that resulted in classmates and teachers turning against him by isolating him from elementary school all the way till high school. Having no plans for the future, Ishida contemplated on committing suicideย till he suddenly reunites with Nishimiya.ย Ishida decided to make amendments for what he did to Nishimiya in elementary school and be her friend.ย I love this movie to bits. It was so funny and heartbreaking at the same time. Moreover, Ishida and Nishimiya look so cute together. ๐Ÿ˜€

Share your favourite meme or GIF


Just look at Leetuek’s face. XD I can’t stop laughing when I chance upon it for the first time.

Tell me a teaser sentence from the book youโ€™re currently reading!

“Someone must die before another is born…”

What device do you use to write your blog posts (computer, phone, etc.)?

I use my computer most of the time since it is faster when you are using a keyboard. I do write blog posts using my phone when I suddenly have some thoughts and opinions on a book that I’m reviewing and I’m not at home. I tend to write my thoughts down quickly before it slipped my mind.

Tell me a little-known fact about you that no other bloggers know.

I love animals so much. Last year when I was on a vacation with family and friends, I managed to chance upon wild sheep, cows, horses, wild rabbits, ostrich and sugar gliders for the first time. I remembered running towards the sheepย like a kid even though my mom was warning me that it might kick me using their hind legs. In addition, I would often give the friendly neighbourhood cats a nice pat when I happened to come across them on my way home. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you could travel anywhere in the world right this instant, where would you go, and why?

I would still want to visit Japan again. There is still other prefectures that I have yet to visit and I love Japan so much that I don’t mind living there. ๐Ÿ™‚ I want to see snow in Hokkaido, cherry blossoms and autumn leaves in Kyoto.

What song is stuck in your head right now? (if any)


Should’ve Held On/ Again by Astro. This is one of my favourite k-pop group and they just had a comeback recently with a new single, Winter Dream. I fell in love with the song, Should’ve Held On, when I first listened to it. I have been replaying this song for so many times ever since that the melody and lyrics are stuck in my mind.

  1. At first, Joanne I was like :O to the 200 – 250 books, but then I was like, wait, girl, you probably are getting close to that amount and it was :O for a whole different reason. It doesn’t seem like all that much at first! I totally agree about your reasons for DNFing. Those are the main reasons I do as well. And so cool that you’re writing it from Tokyo!! Hope the rest of your trip goes well! ๐Ÿ˜€ Wonderful post, and thank you so much for the tag!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Again, I’m so ridiculously far behind, but I’m working on it. XD Thanks again, and fantastic answers! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Thank you so much! I will be waiting in anticipation for your answers. :> I have been buying and reading books ever since I was young so that explains the amount of books that I have. Although I’m trying to sell my children books away now. XD


    1. Japan is really nice place. Other than being in the train/subway during peak hours. I got pushed out of the train even though it wasn’t my stop. A pretty fun experience, being squashed like sardines. XD
