I am very honored to have been nominated for this great award by Joana in the Sky with Books. I have only being writing this blog for about three and a half months. It was a great surprise to see in my notifications a post by Joana saying she nominated me. My fellow bloggers, I haven’t said this before but each and every one of you are awesome. I love how much of a community feeling I get. Plus, who doesn’t like finding out about new books? I can go on and on about why I am so glad I was finally convinced to start a blog. I didn’t think I had anything worth writing. Ok, I am getting a little sentimental on you guys. What can I say? I cry at most movies, and copious amount of tears were cried when Siruis Black was killed. And, to every heart broke, good endings, and true love in Sarah Dessen novels to say a few. But, shhh, don’t tell anyone. 🙂

To the questions!

  1. What are you currently reading?

Mrs. Poe by Lynn Cullen

2.) Do you have any weird bookish habits?

Hmmm, not sure if it is just bookish, but as someone also trying to be a writer I carry AT LEAST three pens with me, two-three notebooks, a bookmark, and tabs. Plus, sometimes a pencil case more often than not that has a highlighter, markers, and a pen with glue.

3.) If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

That is a tough one. There are just so many. I think The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen (3 rereads at this point) or The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chobsky. I was always a rule breaker..

4.) Which is your favourite secondary character?

I thought about this. Lately I have been loving side characters more. But, I think the award has to go to Xemerius from Kerstin Gier’s Sapphire Blue (Red Ruby Trilogy #2). He was delightful for a demon gargoyle. So witty and hysterical. I wish I could have him as a sidekick!

5.) What is your main blogging goal at the moment?

Being able to give great book recommendations (especially with smaller known books and authors).

6.) Do you prefer series or stand-alones?

Stand alones, hands down. I get bored with series. Not with Harry Potter, but that may be one of the few series I have read completely through. There are a couple I wanted to finish, bought the books, and now they are just waiting for me. Specifically The Immortal Secrets of Nicholas Flammel. I have read the first two, and have two more. Been two plus years now they have laid untouched.

7.) What made you decide to create a blog?

My friend Shelia at book journey.  I met her this past June at the Book Expo of America. I was a power reader, non-affliated participant, so I was only allowed to attend for one day. Shelia told me all about the perks of writing a blog, especially about books. She wasn’t wrong. I have now joined Netgalley, have wonderful followers, and am have a lot of fun. Thanks, Shelia!

8.) If you could meet any author, who would you choose?

Well, since Jane Austen is dead; and I have met Sarah Dessen, so I would have to say David Levithan. I absolutely adore him. Hopefully, Sunday I will get to meet him at the Brooklyn Book Festival where he is doing a talk on banned books week.

9.) What has been your happiest moment as a blogger?

Getting my first follower and my first netgalley approval. So many more, of course!

10.) What made you want to start a blog?

In hopes to meet fellow readers I could connect with, read with, and learn more from.

My questions:

1.) What book, or books, are you currently reading?

2.) What was one of your recent reads you wish you never picked up?

3.) What was the most recent book you couldn’t put down?

4.) If you could recast any movie based on a book (like twilight..) what book would it by?

5.) What is the best book to movie adaptation?

6.) If you could only read one genre for the rest of your life, what genre would it be?

7.) Trapped on a desert island, would you want a wand or a sword?

8.) What is the book that made you cry (tears of joy, I hope).

9.) List three (or more for the fun of it) books are your favorites.

10.) Whose your favorite author? Least?
