Questions that Matter with Merve Derya Yazicioglu

A Life Lost by [Yazicioglu, Merve Derya]

I asked the questions that matter of Merve Derya Yazicioglu! But first, the book:

Now, the questions!

Hello, Merve! Let’s get personal: what is the weirdest scar you have and how did you get it?

I have a scar right above my forehead which I got after I got tripped in primary school from a hill. I was a very quiet kid and rarely went out at the school breaks and that was my first and ended up at the hospital. I got a few stitches. It’s a weird story.

We love weird stories here! How did you meet your best friend?

I met my best friend on a penpal website. She emailed me and we added each other on Facebook. That was that until the summer of 2013 I believe. We send snail mails so often and now she lives in France and I moved to the Netherlands. I met her for the first time last summer and hopefully, I am going to see her this year again!

BFF’s! On a scale from 1-5, how afraid of the dark are you?

It is 1. Even though my eyesight is awful and I have glasses that do not work at times, I can see in the dark. I have some cat attributes: being annoying and very active at night.

Do you also knock random objects off counter tops? What’s your favorite word?

Marvellous as I am very much of an old soul. I was told I sound like an old lady when I say Marvellous in a standard British English accent.

Fantastic! What’s your biggest screw up in the kitchen?

I was a brilliant baker as a child when my mum helped me. I had times I was awfully bad at it. For instance, when I first moved abroad-this girl had no idea what “cooking” meant. Even though I cooked a lot with my sister, mum, and grandmother, I was a fish out of water. So as genius as it comes, I boiled pasta in an electric kettle. Never told anyone except my boyfriend and family. I’m still being teased about it to this day.

So long as nothing caught fire! What’s your favorite sound?

The sound of rain hitting the window and the crackling sound of fireplace-candle.

A rainy day reading by the fireplace! Perfect! Are you usually early, late, or on time?

It is not a big deal. I just arrive an hour before things are supposed to start. The first year I started my university education, I used to be at school 2 hours earlier so I could study and relax.

The early bird gets the education! Thank you, Merve, for joining my quirky squad! Support Merve by clicking on the links below. Then, show up early next Friday for another fun interview!


Happy reading! 🙂
