Hello I am Holly and I'm 16 and studying in the UK. I like to talk about Pop culture, British Politics, Comedy, History, 60's and 70's bands and controversial issues over a cup of tea and a good book.

i also type in lower case a lot because i have a burning hatred for CAPITALISM.
^Just a pun. I actually really obsess over grammar so please feel free to correct my spelling.

Interests
EXAMS NEARLY OVER FUCK YEAH.

I really wanted to do something like this but I couldn't find any on Deviantart, so I made my own. If you want to do this yourself, I'd be flattered. And if you're not too hot on books, you could use these questions for movies or cartoons or anime or whatever you want instead.

1. Favourite book (series) of all time

The Summer Book by Tove Jansson

2. Least favourite book (sires) of all time
Probably Twilight. I read the first book just to see what all the fuss was about. I regret it every day.

3. Most nostalgic book (series)

The 'Peter Rabbit and friends' book series by Beatrix Potter.

4. First book you ever read on your own
I think, I think, it was The Lorax by Dr Seuss.

5. The book you re-read the most
Watership Down by Richard Adams.

6. The book you cried at the most
The Boy in the Stripped Pyjamas. The Author's name escapes me.

7. The book you laughed at the most

A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson. Fucking brilliant.

8. Your guilty pleasure book
Pride and prejudice...

9. The book that made you contemplate life the most

Of Mice and Men by John Stienbeck. Choupitoulapinou 

10. The book with the most ambiguous ending
Last Things by Jenny Offill

11. Hardest book (series) you've ever ploughed through
Les Miserables. Totally worth it, though.

12. The book that you gave up on half way through
Lord of the Rings..

13. The one you were forced to read at school
Animal Farm which was great.
Naughts and Crosses which was shit.

14. The book that relates to your life the closest
The Summer book reminds me a lot of my childhood...
My current life? Pretty much any coming of age story. Pick and choose :1

15. The book you're currently reading
A Clash of Kings

16. Fictional character you're most like (be honest)

Enjolras from Les Miserables?

17. Favourite fictional character
Arya Stark from A song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones.

18. Least favourite fictional character
I would say Bella Swan but that would be too predictable...
Holden Caulfield can fuck off.

19. Best Protagonist
I think Harry Bosch is written very well.

20. Best antagonist
Professor Moriarty from the Sherlock series.

21. Book scene you remember most vividly
Honestly, Tigerstar's death from Warriors: The Darkest Hour.

22. Favourite book quote of all time and who says it?
'Come children. Let us break some rules.'
- Snufkin (Moominvalley in November.)

23. Fictional character that reminds you of a friend or family member

Tyrion Lannister reminds me of my friend Elizabeth.

24. A book (series) that you were introduced to by an adaptation

Lord of the Flies I wouldn't have read if my brother hadn't been involved in a production.

25. Best book adaptation you've seen?
The Chronicles of Narnia movies are awesome!

26. The worst book adaptation you've seen?

Oh God, this one is so difficult.
Either the Pride and Prejudice movie or the Les Miserables movie, both of which I hate because they are two things that just weren't meant to exist in movie form.
Although, when talking about how closely they actually followed the source material? How to Train your Dragon. I do like it, but it's nothing like the books which are infinitely better.
In terms of just being insulting and disgraceful to the original, The Lorax and Oliver and company. I cringe just thinking about them.

27. An adaptation you like better than the books?
I liked the Coraline Movie much better than the book. I still really like the book but the movie is just amazing.

28. Grab the nearest book, turn to page ten and read the first line. What does it say?
'Fired from close range, the next paintball knocked James backwards on to the concrete floor'
(This is from the 'Cherub' series. Would highly recommend to any teen or young adult that's into spies, action and adventure.)

29. Book that you like for the artwork (You can count graphic novels for this one, if you like.)
Varjak Paw by SF Said.

30. A book you really want to read?

The Dav Vinci Code and Now I know why the caged bird sings

I tag thegirlwiththepin and GeorgiaScarlett.

Feel free to use and tell me if you do use it. I'd love to read them! :)

The 'Probably Socialist or some crank' thing is an inside joke between me and my friends as a reference to 'An Inspector calls' which we were required to study for our English GCSE (which is also why you will see me spam 'I don't play golf' in reply to some of my comments which is another line from the screenplay. Hilarious if you put it into context.)

The 'Burning hatred for capitalism' is also a joke, certainly a hyperbole. While it's true I do not 'like' capitalism or the free market per say, (or rather, the side effects of it), I understand that it is necessary for this stage in globalisation.

Though I am a left libertarian, I do not fully identify as socialist as I respect that a radical left-wing change to the economy would be disastrous, nor do I hate people who identify as capitalist.

So don't worry, I don't blindly follow the far-left agenda.

(Also, are you that guy who replied to my comment on the feminist stamp? Fyi, I'm a humanist and fully support people who are anti-feminist. I just didn't understand your analogy, or rather thought it was a bit far-fetched. However once you explained I got the jist of it.)

My comment was indeed rushed and I didn't put much research nor thought in your profile nor your claims, which I should apologize for.
I'm not a free market freak myself, I support goverment in making restrictions on capitalists so everyone could get a fair shot and don't believe in anarcho-capitalism, that's just a side note.
I actually don't like the globalisation of market myself, while useful and comfortable it can have damaging effects on quality of products we buy and on wealthy people getting more power than middle class or poor people, which was the case in my country (Poland) that I'm glad someone exposed.
Well, you know what they say - if you manage to piss off both conservatives and liberals you can call yourself a libertarian.

I'm very glad to understand and see that I was wrong in my accusations. I'm very disappointed in humanity that alot of people either go for being conservative or leftist, rather than see the good points that both of the sides represent, alot of people are so deep in their bullshit they can't see that they have become bigots themselves, that's why I'm pretty agressive and straight forward with my claims, which I apologize for.

As I said - I'm glad you don't. After all people forgot that being atheist is also being open minded and not automaticaly conforming to the far leftist side and vice versa.

(No idea, it depends what the content of the stamp was? But it's surely possible)

Okay, thank you for understanding.  I totally get why you seemed agressive as yes, there are so many people out there who become emoptionally attatched to their ideologies to the point of being so defensive and hypocritical. I can't stand people like that myself so don't worry about it.

Also good to know that there are other people out there on the internet that actually listen to reason. :)
