Questions

  1. What is your Top 3 book category and genre?
    • My top three currently would be non-fiction, horror, and thriller
  2. Who is your favorite fictional love team?

  3. What is your all-time favorite fiction book?
    • Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  4. Which quote (from a book) you like best?
    • I think the etsy shop BookQuoteDecor did a wonderful job embodying my favorite quote. Image result for I;d rather have tea than compliments
  5. Which book character would you like to meet and why?
    • I feel like I would love to meet Molly Weasley. She is a very smart witch and I feel like she would have some great advice and would be very kind.

  8. What is your favorite nonfiction book?

It is a very interesting look into early American politics, business, and also a look at one of the most important men when it comes to industry. While this books focus is on a man, it dives into a lot of the culture and the surrounding world. The First Tycoon - Cornelius Vanderbilt (book cover).jpg

Why I am Passionate About Blogging

I am passionate about blogging because it give me the space to express things that interest me in general. While I do mainly blog about books, I do have my other interests sprinkled in. Due to the fact that I have my own little space on the internet I am able to discuss these interests with others I would never have found other wise. I also find it a great way to just relax. I enjoy writing and creating my images for my blog so I find it to be a creative outlet. Lastly, it is something that is just for me. I created this blog for me, I write for me, and I read for me. Other people enjoying it is just a wonderful bonus that puts a huge smile on my face.

The Questions

  1. Do you read one or multiple books at a time?
    • I usually read 3 books at one time. I never intend on it happening it just always does. I have yet to confused the books and I can still follow them so I don’t see a point in stopping now.
  2. Five books you would recommend someone?
    • The Witches by Stacey Schiff
    • Bag of Bones by Stephen King
    • The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
    • The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
    • Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
  3. How many books do you read in a month in an average ?
    • 4-10, my months are usually all over the place. Some months I read non-stop while others I don’t feel like reading as much. I have learned from my own experience, if I don’t feel like reading don’t. It will just suck all the joy out of reading.
  4. Has any book ever changed your life, or shook you ?
    • Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, it really helped shape my life. I read it very young and I have reread it so many times since. It showed me that I can be strong, smart, and brave. Something I think is an important lesson to learn at a young age.
  5. Your most read author ?
    • Louisa May Alcott and Stephen King, very different authors I am aware, but I love both of their styles and I have yet to hate anything by either of them,
  6. A book you feel is under-rated ?
    • I feel like any Christopher Isherwood book is underrated. He is a great story teller and his stories are all unique.
  7. A book you have been meaning to read for ever?
    • This is a very good question. I have been meaning to read Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy for what seems like forever. Somehow I started reading it and my mom ended up picking it up then lost it on me. I just ordered a new copy so I am determined to finish it now that I have a copy again.
  8. A book you had high hopes for , but ended up disappointing ?
    • The Shatter Me series in general, I heard so many great things about it. Sadly, I was unable to even finish the first book. I never wanted to pick it up and when I did I didn’t want to read it. I was bored and uninterested. It was just not a book for me.
  9. Do you have any reading schedule ?
    • I don’t have a specific reading schedule, but I do my best to read a little each day. Sometimes this is hours others it is about 10 min. it really depends on me mood. But, I find it important to just do a little each day. It is a great time to relax and focus on me.
  10. What is the biggest lesson you learnt in life, so far?
    • You can’t control everything, just do what you can and try not to worry about the rest. Easier said than done, but it something I feel is important and I need to keep it in mind often.

2.What is your least favorite genre to read?

I think my least favorite genre to read is poetry. I say this because it is very difficult for me to find poetry I enjoy. While on the other hand it is very easy for me to go in a bookstore and find a fantasy or historical fiction books I know I would love.

3.Favorite book so far of 2017?

This one is a difficult one for me to answer. I can only narrow it down to two books. The first being The Stranger in the Woods: The Extraordinary Story of the Last True Hermit by Michael Finkel and A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

4.Do you follow anyone who is your blogging inspiration?

I would prefer to read a physical books, but when I am out and about I usually have an ebook copy of my current read from the library so I can read it on the go if I have some down time.

Stephen King because he can make me attached to characters, scares me, makes me think, and his twists are great. Also, he has so many books I don’t think I will ever run out.

9.What is book that has seriously changed your life?

This is a difficult one. I would not say there is a specific book, but I will say there have been book series that has led me to some great friendships like Harry Potter and books by J.R. Ward.

10.What’s your favorite snack to munch on while reading?

I normally do not snack while I read because I do not want to get my book all dirty, but I will drink some coffee or tea while read and occasionally juice.
