    I loved reading your answers! I love seafood too, especially shrimp, lobster, and crab. I could have coconut shrimp all day everyday, haha. I also do like contemporary novels because they’re definitely easier to relate to, and I tend to avoid historical fiction whenever possible… Thank you so much for the nomination! I’ll get to it as soon as possible, but at the moment I’m really behind on awards/tags… xx

    Thank you for nominating me for this award! I loved reading your post! Like you, I do love sea food, calamari being one of my favourites! See, I can never choose between new or old books! I love pristine covers, but then I always love the perfectly imperfect covers and spines of old books! 🙈🙈

    I enjoyed reading this! I also have a knack for seafood; I like certain types of fish (milk fish, tilapia, salmon), shrimp, sometimes calamari, mussels, crab, and more. I agree that uses books are certainly cheaper, but I do enjoy a new book every now and then 🙂 I also love to shop, Hot Topic is my favorite place because they have fandom merch.

      You may want to stop eating tilapia… Especially if comes from China.. If the news are correct, tilapia feeds on feces. Sounds gross and I’m sorry to break that news to you because I used to eat a lot of Tilapia. Yes, I like calamari too. And I love your 10 facts. (I don’t have Netflix either lol)
