I love superhero films and graphic novels and have watched virtually all the Marvel films in existence. But despite being more of a Marvel girl, I loved Wonderwoman when it came out and Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu, so when Emma @Emma’sChapter tagged me to do this I just couldn’t say no.

Who is Your Favourite Anti-Hero?
I was torn between a few characters for this one, but I ended up going with Victor Vale, who is undoubtedly one of the most captivating anti-heroes I’ve ever come across in fiction. His moral compass is skewed, but also kind of logical. He wants to take down a villain, and is willing to use any means necessary to do it, even if it means becoming a villain himself in the process. Despite his flaws, there’s a magnetism to Victor that means you can’t help but root for him.
A Book or Character That Turned Out To Be Better Than You Expected
I went into To Kill A Kingdom, expecting it to be good, but not mind-blowing. Yet, I was pleasantly surprised once I started reading; it was brilliant. The plot was pacy, the characters were nuanced and full of depth, and there were definite feminist undertones. TKAK far exceeded my predictions for it and, although it’s a standalone, I’ll happily read more of Alexandra Christo’s books in the future.
Most Badass Female Character
Is this- is this even a question? Not for me anyway. Delila Bard is one of the most badass characters I’ve ever encountered (irrespective of gender). Closely followed by Inej and Kate Harker. Imagine if they formed a girl gang. I’d die. (And then ask to join.)
Favourite Science Fiction Novel
I had high hopes for this book and it exceeded pretty much all of them. The plot was dramatic, complex, and twisty (my favourite kind of plot), the characters had layers upon layers of personality, and the world-building was a multiplex of different historical eras. If you’re a fan of time travel, I’d definitely recommend it.
A Book You Sped Through
I read I Was Born For This in two days, while working full-time, commuting, and going running. (I mean, I didn’t actually read it while running, that would be tough (unless listening to the audiobook), I just read it in between my runs.) The storytelling was addictive and the characters very likeable, so I ended up flying through it and not being able to put it down.
Saddest Character Death
There’s a certain character death at the end of Our Dark Duet that punched me right in the metaphorical heart. I had an inkling that was going to happen in the final chapters, but it still hurt. Having said that, their death gave a lot of closure an was somehow a fitting end for their storyline. Only V could write a death so well that it seemed ‘fitting’.
