- Where do you live?Manila, Philippines.
- How old are you?21.
- Do you have a goodreads account?Yes! I’d love to be friends with you on there. :)
- What is your favorite book?This is the most frequently asked question I hate answering! I love a multitude of books from almost every genre, and it’s hard to choose a favorite. It’s like opting to save only one of your beloved kids when the ship is sinking!Anyway, I’ll just list here some of the first titles that come to mind when I’m asked this question: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordano, The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis, The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, all of John Green’s books, The Sandman by Neil Gaiman (it’s a ten-volume graphic novel series but I always include them in my book recs), Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn, The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larrson, Jane Eyre by Charlote Bronte, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami, The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Nifenegger, 1984 by George Orwell, A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, and The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.note: all links to the book reviews redirect to my book tumblr. I'll fix them soon so that they go straight to my reviews here.
- Who are your favorite authors?Neil Gaiman, John Green, Haruki Murakami, Alan Moore, Chuck Palahniuk, David Levithan, Holly Black, Markus Zusak, etc.
- What’s a Gaimaniac?
It’s a title I created and gave myself, though I’m quite sure a lot of other similar words exist before. It’s someone who is addicted to Neil Gaiman. :)
- What genres are you into?I make it a point to read a book in every genre I encounter, but my cup of tea is science fiction/fantasy. I also tend to read a lot of titles from the noir fiction and YA bookshelves. And classic, too.
- E-books or books?I believe what really matters is that you read, not how you read. But if I have to choose, I’ll say books. There’s nothing like holding a real book in your hands, from the very moment you buy it to that instant when you turn the last page and decide you’ll reread it in the future. When it’s newly purchased, there’s nothing like its smell. Or the soft rustling of pages as you turn them for the first time. Or the first crease on its spine. Or the first memorable quote you jotted down while you’re reading. When it’s spent ages on your shelf, there’s nothing like the smell of its oldness—not the moldy scent, but the I-loved-and-kept-this-book-for-years smell. Or the crisp sound of the fragile pages as you flick them with your fingers. Or the multiple creases on its spine.Haha! Sorry for all the cheesiness, but you get the point. That doesn’t mean I’m indisposed to own an E-Reader, though. I mean, it’s the epitome of bookworm convenience—you can bring a helluva lot of tomes with this wee gadget wherever you go. It’s like a Doraemon pocket, you know? Heehee.
- Are you doing reading challenges?Challenges on goodreads, yes.

Human, mostly. Haha. You may look at the GPOY tag here or at the one on my fandom tumblr.
