Anonymous asked: Okay since you are so awesome I don't want to mess this up so - If someone were to draw or write something for you is there anything you would want?
There is really no way to mess up - I mean, the idea of someone putting in the time to draw me — a random stranger on the internet — anything is just so kind. If you (hypothetically) would like to know things I enjoy, here is a brief list: books, writing, Night Vale, Catcher in the Rye, cats.
Anonymous asked: Hey you! You are awesome! I'm curious - what's your favorite book/why?
This is the kind of question that is really hard to give one answer… I hope you don’t mind if I split it up into some categories?
Short Story Anthologies: I love, love, LOVE Amy Hempel’s collection “Reasons to Live.” It’s gorgeously written, and thought-provoking, and I’m kind of in love with it.
YA Fiction: I’m going to have to go with An Abundance of Katherines at the moment. It’s funny, smart, and just an intriguing read.
Childhood favorite: Jacob Have I Loved by Katherine Paterson. I still love it. It’s just a wonderful story about sibling relations and is just fantastic.
Picturebook: Cinder Edna - it’s just wonderful in terms of paralleling the Cinderella story but it’s her neighbor, who is very practical and ends up happily ever after in a little cottage home with the prince’s brother and a billion cats. It’s kind of my life dream.
Poetry Anthology: I’m going to have to go with “Mayachovsky’s Revolver” by Mathew Dickman. He just writes wonderful, wonderful poetry, and this is probably the first book of poetry that I totally fell in love with.
"Classic" book: The Catcher in the Rye is just fantastic. I don’t know how to describe all of the ways I love it.
Novel: The Road by Cormac McCarthy - it’s strange but endearing and heartbreaking and beautiful.
Series: I love the Harry Potter series, but a favorite from middle/early high school is the Boy Sherlock Holmes series by Shane Peacock. I’m not a huge mystery reader in general, but these are so intricate and develop a story in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to show Sherlock’s backstory.
I think I’ve said enough for now. Sorry if that was a bit extensive…
