Julie’s Questions:

What’s your most anticipated read for the rest of 2021?

Under the Whispering Door

Right now this is the top of the list. I had the next Crescent City book but that has been pushed to January of next year.

What was your favorite book when you were a kid?

Time for Bed

haha.. when I was really little.. this was the one. I did get my hand on a used copy for my kid.

If you could turn any book or series into a movie/film, which would you choose?

House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City, #1)

This is always a hard one for me because a lot of them have been terrible. I do think that with Shadow and Bone on Netflix, they might be able to handle this. If not, I think HBO or the CW could also do a good job! It’s got so much awesome detail that I would want it to be done correctly and that make me nervous. haha

Have you ever written or considered writing a book?

Ohh, I don’t think I’ve ever been asked this question before. I wouldn’t. I am not a writer and thoroughly a reader. My husband on the other hand, loves writing. He’s so good at coming up with stories on the spot. I would give him really random things like an onion, the sun, and a rabbit and he would come up with something awesome. I do not have that gift of imagination. I also just can’t even fathom how daunting it would be to come up with a brilliant story! I will leave it to all the lovely writers out there. ❀

What would be the title of the book based on your life?

There is beauty in the struggle. LOL. I have no idea but there’s been a lot that I’ve had to go through and I’ve always come out better.

If they make a movie based on your life, who would you cast as actor/actress for your role?

I think Jenna Fischer. I’m totally Pam but I’ve seen her in other things and I feel like we have some similar vibes.

What is your favorite read of 2021?

Okay, I have two. I have a fiction book and a memoir that I listened to as an audiobook!

The Empire of Gold (Daevabad Trilogy, #3)
This is my favorite book so far!! Amazing ending to a series.
This audiobook was so good! My favorite one this year!

What are you currently reading?

Network Effect (The Murderbot Diaries, #5)

I have been buddy reading this series with Dini. We have both been enjoying it! She’s already finished with this book because I got super busy and behind. I’m making some progress, finally!

Is there a book you keep saying “One day I will read it” but you never do?

Omg… there are soooo many!!! haha. I think the most recent one that I talked to someone about was Emma by Jane Austen~ I hope one day soon. lol

Can you name an underrated book you read and loved?

The Truth About Alice

It’s been so long since I’ve read this. I remember loving it but it was really and still is underrated. I read it in 2014 so quite a while ago. I wonder if I would feel the same now.

What’s one book you wish you could re-read for the first time?

The House in the Cerulean Sea

There are so many but this one would be good. I feel like I’m just in the mood for this book right now!

  1. What are you currently reading?

  1. Thank you so much for the tag! I still have The House in the Cerulean Sea sitting on my shelf, so I’m looking forward to reading it for the first time. I think I’ve only ever seen one negative review while scrolling through book blogs, so I’m hoping to get to it this summer.
