3 Important Things to Know About Me, Your Overlord

1. I once named an ant Ronaldo. I fed him some of my hotdog, too.

2. This was, of course, before I went vegetarian. And no, I'm not a super picky eater who only eats food that tastes like cardboard. That's a vegan you're thinking of, mate.

3. Also, there is a secret portal to the Void in my closet. However, it is quite finicky, and it will often take to dumping me out in the middle of Finland.

Wonderful Questions From a Wonderful Adi

1. What is your all-time favorite book character?
ALWIN ARUNDEL LOWDHAM. An extremely obscure Tolkien character, Ari is a scholar living in the 20th century who receives visions of Atlantis and learns its extinct language. He's also the Sassmaster of the Century.

A few runners-up:
  • Cyrano de Bergerac (Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand)
  • The Grey Man (The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater)
  • Bartimaeus (The Amulet of Samarkand by Jonathan Stroud) 
  • Granny Weatherwax (Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett)

2. What writing style aggravates you the most?
He went there. She did this. He said that, this, and the other thing. Also, I started to do that thing.
*BANGS HEAD AGAINST WALL*

3. Favorite book cover?
I'm as indecisive as my closet portal, so have a collage.


4. Thoughts on the trend of pages being made super thin in order to make long books look smaller?
Why not? 

5. What book do you hate that you can't understand why everyone else loves?


  • highly transphobic
  • writing blander than potato soup
  • insta-love
  • super confusing portrayal of depression??? 
  • why

I nominate...

You. Go ahead. Do this tag. Live your dream.

  1. Ah yes I was confused by It's Kind Of A Funny Story as well! I understand that depression is a different experience for each and every person, but the writing was a bit hard to follow. I'm so happy you think I'm a beautiful pickle. There is a pickle factory right by my cottage and it's AMAZING OMG. Also, fellow veggie here. I do not eat bland food. That is not a life I seek to live.

    1. I agree! Although Ned Vizzini's experience with depression is perfectly valid, he did not articulate or explain it well. Pretty much the only symptoms he featured were not getting a lot of sleep and lack of appetite. There are plenty of other reasons people could have those symptoms, and most depressed people have far greater worries than those. Furthermore, I think he accidentally implied that working hard and setting high goals for yourself only ever leads to depression and that people shouldn't try to be the best versions of themselves. :/

      YOU LIVE IN A COTTAGE?? Omg, that's so cool. You are the most beautiful of all pickles, clearly <3

  2. I love your three facts, they were really interesting :-)

  3. I TOTALLY AGREE. Your taste in covers was fantastic! And we have the same peeve. I hate it when people fawn over a writing style of a book but it ends up being so bland and telling.

    Naming an ant Ronaldo... what made you decide to name him that?

  4. Eep, I actually liked It's Kind of A Funny Story but I read it AGES ago so...I don't know that I was paying attention to stuff that I know more about now?! If that makes sense?? Although it's an #ownvoices rep of depression and it's really sad about the author. 😥

    THOSE COVERS ARE GORGEOUS THOUGH. AM IN LOVE.

    And I need a void portal in my close. So far the only thing in there is a monster that eats my socks. Super rude, ugh.

  5. To be honest, I would LOVE a closet that transports me to Finland? Because it looks like such a beautiful country. I've only been once, but I remember nothing. :'( I was also kind of meh about It's Kind of a Funny Story. And I love Bartimaeus! His sarcasm feeds my soul.
