Q1: What is a book you thought you wouldn't like, but did?
A: I did not think I would really like Twilight. When the first movie came out I heard people talking about it and had no idea what it was. A few months later I decided to check it out to see what the hype was. I had never really read anything with vampires before so I didn't think I would like it. I've now read all the books twice.
Q2: Do you prefer first, second, or third person?
A: I tend to read mostly first or third person books. I like to mix them up to get a variety. I don't think I have really read anything in second person point of view.
Q3: Where do you prefer to receive the books you buy?
A: I get most of my books from Barnes and Noble since I own a Nook and get member discounts. I love ordering books and having them waiting at home for me when I return from a trip. I also really enjoy visiting any small bookstore I see. I tend to always buy something just to support them.
Q4: If you could have any superpower, what would it be?
A: I would like the ability to be able to close my eyes and end up in another place. When it comes to traveling for work, I hate layovers when flying especially when I just want to go home. Blinking and being somethwere else would just be so much faster and save time.
Q5: What book or book series caused you to enjoy reading?
A: I have always enjoyed reading for as long as I can remember. I don't know what book caused me to like it so much though. In first grade I was really into the Ramona Quimby books. And before that I remember my dad reading me Pat the Bunny every night.
Q6: What books are you looking forward to the most this year?
A: I don't know of many new releases coming out this year. However I have a full shelf of TBR books that I would like to tackle and I'm looking forward to reading those. (I'm out of town right now so I don't remember some of the titles to share with you).
Q7: What is your fondest book memory?
A: During summer breaks in elementary school I would spend some days at my granny's house. Each week she would take us to the library and I would always walk out with an armful of books. Then go back to the AC and quietness of her house, curl up in a chair and read for hours. Sometimes I wish I could go back to those summer days just to have endless hours to read.
Q8: Who is your favorite male character?
A: Gregory David Roberts, author and main character of Shantaram, was a great male character. I'd love to follow him around India and meet the people
Q9: What do you think of love triangles?
A: I don't read many books with love triangles, but when I do they are alright. They add some drama that always makes it interesting, buuuut sometimes I think they can be a bit juvenile and get on my nerves.
Q10: What secondary character in a book do you wish was the main character?
A: I would have liked to see Henry's point of view in The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I loved the book told in Richard's POV since he was the new one to their group, but Henry had such an interesting mind. I would have liked to see in it.
Q11: Name the book that always makes you smile.
A: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. I LOVE this book!!!
