1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?
Yep. One would think I'm on a rollercoaster.
2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?
Sally Green. The way she writes is artistic, in fragments and sometimes there'll be something like the same word for the entire page. It's creative and unique. Too bad I can't stand her books.
3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.
Harry Potter all the way.
1) I grew up with Harry Potter.
2) The supporting characters in HP are just important as the title character whereas the supporting characters in Twilight are meant to make Bella look better.
3) The plot for Harry Potter kicks in pretty early while Twilight's takes three hundred pages [in a 400 paged book] before we can get any action.
4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books)?
Nope. I read on my phone in public because I don't like other people creeping on what I'm reading. Especially if it's a contemporary romance and the people in my class are pinheads.
5. Do you smell your books?
6. Books with or without little illustrations?
LOVE illustrations even though I'm not a visual learner.
7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?
...Twilight? Those were dark, dark times.
8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!
I used to go to the library and borrow 20 books at a time. They were like 50 pages each so I breezed through them in a week. But one time I was walking out and the lady was like, "that stack is taller than you!" [I was also a short kid. I went into sixth grade barely being 4 ft.
|also, i imagine this is how i meandered around a library as a kid. who |
am i fooling? i still do this.
9. What is the tiniest book on your shelf?
My tiny-ass editions of [Harry Potter] HP1, HP3 and HP4. [And just to add, HP2 and HP5 are paperback illustrated covers. HP6 and HP7 are the same illustration style but in hardcover. The non-matchingness kills me every time.]
10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?
City of Heavenly Fire - no contest. Although, I think Winter will beat that once I get my hands on it.
11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?
I keep going back to writing but I literally hate everything I write. I don't know if it's because I have an esteem problem or because I've read too much and hold myself to a high standard.
12. When did you get into reading?
Very early on. My parents aren't readers but they wanted me to be and starting a blog surpassed their expectations.
13. What is your favourite classic book?
Lel. I don't read classics. I read retellings of classics. [Also Easy A and She's the Man are bomb.]
14. In school what was your best subject?
My marks tell me that Geography is my best subject but I've always felt like I do well in English. Let's pretend like English isn't my lowest mark. English is so hard and I got into a disagreement with the teacher so he marked me based on opinion. Whatever.
But to be honest, I'm decent at a lot of subjects and I owe it all to books.
15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated, what would you do?
First, I would smile politely because books aren't cheap. I would probably keep it or give it away if I can. Best case - I sell it for a bit of cash to buy another book.
16. What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?
Something that seriously bothers me is when publishers pitch their new book as "blah blah blah meets blah blah blah" because it usually raises my expectations and when I read the actual book, it's not that great. I see books being compared to Hunger Games all the time. I would compare Endgame to The Hunger Games [also, I refuse to finish Endgame because ugh.]
17. What is a bad habit you always do while blogging?
Does getting easily distracted count as a bad habit? Oh! I always draft a million posts but never finish any of them. Seriously, I've got at least 20 posts that are half-done.
18. What is your favorite word?
Hella. Or a word that is bad that I should not say on this post.
19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?
Since these terms have negative connotations, I'm going to go with the title of unicorn. Ladies and gents, I am a unicorn.
20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?
Vampires and only because of Julie Kagawa's The Blood of Eden series. Battling humanity is a big thing for me and I love reading about it. Also, faeries always give me the image of a barbie movie. #sorrynotsorry.
21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?
GUYS. I'M NOT GOOD AT FANTASY. Angels are okay, or at least the ones I've read. I enjoyed Angelfall and for a while, The Mortal Instruments was my jam. However, I have no interest to read about the fallen angel crap from Fitzpatrick or Kate.
22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?
Spirits. Now here's an easy question. Werewolves are an eyeroll at this point. The whole "pack" thing feels like politics and I'm not about that life.
23. Zombies or Vampires? Why?
Both? Again, Julie Kagawa's Blood of Eden series features both.
24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?
Can I say neither? Forbidden love tends to get whiny and a love triangle never made sense to me. You can't bounce between two guys or two girls [the latter rarely happens] and play with their feelings like that.
25. And finally: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?
ACTION PACKED. DUH. WHAT IS THIS QUESTION? Sometimes I love books without romance because the story is so gripping that the romance would just pull it down.
