Thank you, Siobhan @ Novelties for the tag! I used your graphic, I hope that’s okay! I’m sorry that it’s taken me so long to respond! Now, I’ll get started…
I have recently been tagged by Lizzy @ The Bookish Unicorn. Thank you, so much! I really appreciate the tag. Check out her blog, it’s awesome! Since, it’s been about a month, since I’ve done this one… my answers haven’t changed! 8/8/18
Do you get sick while reading in the car?
I never used to! Now, with my fertility meds, I cannot read in the car. 😦 I get really bad motion sickness with them and I just try not to throw up. It’s quite sad. I live 2.5 hours from my family and that’s a long drive now!
Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?
The first thing that comes to mind is The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. That series is so unique and different than anything I have ever read. The stories are told through video vlogs, pictures, charts, email transcripts and instant messages. I love it.
Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give 3 points to defend your answer.
Harry Potter for sure. I did enjoy Twilight when it came out. I now realize how it’s not that great but still appreciate it. It started my love for YA.
Do you carry a book bag? If so, what is in it (besides books…)?
Nope- just my purse. It’s a big purse. I really want a mini purse back pack.. they are coming back in style and I want one! In my purse, it’s the usual things, plus a ton of pens, notebook and usually a book/Kindle.
Do you smell your books?
Yes. New book smell! ❤
Books with or without little illustrations?
I liked illustrations!
What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?
Twilight Saga. haha
Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!
My mom would have to ground me from reading. Yup. She tried to force me to put down books and go outside. When I got in trouble, I wasn’t allowed to read.
What is the thinnest book on your shelf?
If children books don’t count, I believe it’s Wishful Drinking by Carrie Fisher.
What is the thickest book on your shelf?
It definitely has to be one of my Game of Thrones books by George R.R. Martin. Oh, just remembered that I have all the Outlander books by Diana Gabaldon too.
Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?
Nope. I’m definitely a reader. My husband on the other hand is both. I’m in awe of people who can write.
When did you get into reading?
When I was in elementary school. I had to do an AR program in English class. We all did. I found my love for something that I had to do for class!
What is your favorite classic book?
I need to read Pride and Prejudice and I know it will be my favorite. haha
In school what was your best subject?
English. I am really good at BS, there’s a lot of room to work that on papers. haha
If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated… what would you do?
Thank them politely and then donate it to my local library.
What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or the Hunger Games?
I’m not sure how closely related they are but I’ll plug a series that is underrated. The Splintered series by A.G. Howard is great. It’s an Alice in Wonderland retelling.. so magic? lol
What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while filming?
I don’t film- so this doesn’t apply to me.
What is your favorite word?
Are you a nerd, dork or dweeb? Or all of the above?
Probably a nerd
Vampires or Fairies? Why?
I’m really into fairies lately. They are just so mysterious.
Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?
Angels. I love them and wish that the books about them would trend. Like vampires did.
Spirits or werewolves? Why?
Werewolves. not sure why.
Zombies or Vampires?
Vampires. Zombies are creepy and gross.
Love triangle or forbidden love?
Forbidden love 100%. I really dislike love triangles.
And Finally: Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?
Action packed with a few love scenes mixed in for sure!
-If anyone else wants to!!
I am so sorry it took so long to do this! I’m so behind right now but I’m working to catch up. Slowly but surely 🙂
