Q1: Bookish confession. I haven't read a Jane Austen novel that I've enjoyed yet! 😳 I will continue though!

Q2: Author you think is underrated. Georgia Blain who wrote Between a Wolf and a Dog which is still one of the best books I've read this year and I want more people to read it!

Q3: Do you write at all? Only academically and scientifically for the past 10+ years but I started my blog so I could do more creative writing. I've always wanted to write a novel and am starting to make a little progress 😊

Q4: Read any good nonfiction recently? Yes - The Gender Games by Juno Dawson. Amazing!
