Ask @rakioddbooks:

What's your blogging style? How do you prep your blog posts? Is there a process on how you decide on what to write about?

I don't think I have a blogging style. The only blogs I really plan are book reviews, where I answer specific questions for every review. Other than that, I post about bookish things and non bookish things whenever I feel like posting or have something interesting to post.

Describe your perfect sandwich that makes all other sandwiches look like crackers and cheese.

hmmmm... Imma make something up! I call this... the ultra delux breakfast sandwich.
Toast a slice of bread, that will be your base. Spread some butter on the slice and lay some strips of bacon. Toast 2 more slices and cut out a bit of the middle, just leave about 2.5cm on each side as borders. Spread some butter on the "bottom" of each side (not too much butter, unless you love butter) of the slices (you can also use cheese, actually, cheese is better if your slices aren't very even or there are too many gaps). This will act as your glue. Put the slices on top of each other on top of the slice with bacon. Scramble some eggs, make them how ever you like and put them in the middle don't go too much over the top, lay more bacon across and top it all with another slice. Drink with orange juice or other "refreshing" drink.

... What kind of bedtime story was that? I'm going to get nightmares!! AHHH! What will I do?!? How do you prepare for bed? What's one thing you do that ensures you'll have a good night sleep?

MUAHAHAHAHA!! Nightmares are good, they toughen you up and get you ready for the real world.
My sleepy time routine goes a little something like this! First, shower and teeth! Then I watch TV 'til 12-1 in the morning on work days or 3am during weekends. Then, I drink a bit of water, not too much, to keep hydrated. Go potty. Pray. Finally turn off the lights and get in bed and do last minute email or YouTube checks. Then go to sleep!

-bounces- Can you read me a bedtime story? And if you are, which one will it be?

Of course! Yay story time! *clears throat*
This is the story of Hell Baby (by Hideshi Hino) ~ *this is the actual story... I think, I may have taken some liberties towards the end, so if you plan on reading it, do not continue because it'll be spoiled for you)
Once upon a time in a dark stormy night, twins were born. One twin was cute as can be. Soft skin, rosy cheeks and big bright eyes. The other twin, unfortunately, was a little different. She was grotesque, the spitting image of a demon spawn. But what truly made her different, was her taste for blood. Horrified, her parents put her in a plastic bag and dumped her in a garbage dump. Needless to say, the baby from hell died and her parents and everyone else moved on with their lives. But that wasn't the end of Hell Baby. Oh, no! A bolt of lightning hit Hell Baby's corpse and brought her back to life! For the next 7 years Hell Baby survived in the dump eating garbage, rotting corpses, and the unfortunate strays. "It's not fair!" Hell Baby thought! "How could they do this to me? How could they!" Hell Baby became enraged, savage, her thirst for blood was stronger than ever! Revenge! She wanted revenge! And revenge she would have! Hell Baby found her way back into the city and surviving on the people that were unfortunate enough to cross her path. Finally, she found her family's home. The peaceful look on their sleeping faces threw her into a fit of rage! Hell Baby snuck into their house, tore them limb from limb and drank their blood. The End.
Aww wasn't that nice? What does this story teach us? It teaches us that you shouldn't have babies. And in the event that you do and it turns out to be a blood thirsty baby from hell, you should dispose of it by setting it on fire. Otherwise, it'll come and slaughter you in your sleep.

In a post-apocalyptic world where the only choice for food is humans, which would you eat first; babies or seniors?

Babies of course! Who knows what kind of diseases the old people might be carrying. Hey! I'm just trying to survive. And if I've resorted to cannibalism then that means I mean business and I'm not gonna go halfassed about it. If I didn't mean business I would just chose to die instead. However, there would be some rules. No eating toddlers. I guess we have to keep the human race going so we need some kids for future generations. If you managed to keep your child alive past 3 years, congratulations, you deserve to keep them.

If you could lose an arm or a leg, which one would you lose and why?

I would lose an arm. There are many things I can still do with just one arm. And it's funny, that even though I lead a sedentary life, the thought of not being able to walk is too depressing. Besides, I'm too fat to carry my weight around on just one leg. And, I've been practicing doing things with my left hand, I'm not great at it, but I think I could manage.

What got you into the blogging world? And why did you choose to start off with books as a medium?

I really wanted to try being more articulate. I'm really bad at expressing my thoughts, especially when it's about something I like. I thought blogging would be good practice. I've always loved reading, been reading since 3rd grade. However, I probably love watching TV just as much, and at the time I decided to start a blog, Netflix hand't been working for months. With no TV and no Netflix it was time to really dive into the reading world once again.

What are a few of your worst fears?

My worst fear is heights. I get dizzy just standing on a chair.
Another fear would be driving. It's not severe, but I really hate driving. I even have nightmares about driving. I still drive of course, but I really wish I didn't have to.
And a fear that's plagued me all my life is corn moths and earwigs crawling into my ears. I think the thought of that happening traumatized me as a child.
