Questions from Leslie:
1. Do you prefer hardcovers, paperbacks, or e-books? And which is your least favorite?
I prefer to read paperbacks or ibooks for convenience, and even though hardcovers are more expensive and harder to lug around they are so temptingly gorgeous sitting on a bookshelf.
2. If you could live one day in the life of a fictional character, who would you chose?
Probably Percy Jackson or anyone who gets to attend Hogwarts, being a demigod or a wizard would be pretty kick-ass.
3. What fictional character would you pick to be your book BFF?
This is a tricky question. Can I only pick one? It’s between Alanna (The Song of the Lioness Quartet), Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy) or Celaena Sardothien (Throne of Glass).
4. What book/series would you like to see be turned into a movie or television series?
I would honestly like to see a remake of both the Percy Jackson series and Vampire Academy.
5. Would you rather travel into the future or the past?
I would rather travel back into the past, we can never fully understand the weight of certain time periods without having lived them and is no one else curious about if a queen’s court is just as interesting in real life as it is in a period novel? Though my love of vaccines and plumbing keeps me satisfied with the present.
6. What was your favorite television cartoon series growing up?
Definitely the Looney Tunes, I was enamoured with Bugs Bunny and co.
7. Do you have a favorite genre of books? If so, which genre?
I read mostly young adult, generally fantasy, dystopian or contemporary, though I’m hoping to branch out into science fiction and non-fiction.
8. What were your least and favorite books that you were forced to read in your schooling?
I abhorred The Tempest, by William Shakespeare and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens but enjoyed Lord of the Flies, Animal Farm and Holes a lot.
9. Do you have a favorite place to read?
My favorite place to read would be in my room either on my bed or on the floor.
10. What is your favorite TV show?
As of right now it’s either In the Flesh, Merlin or The Vampire Diaries though Buffy the Vampire Slayer always remains a classic favorite of mine.
11. What “trend” in books is your least favorite/do you find most annoying? For example, love triangles, dystopian societies, vampires, etc.
No trend really turns me away from a novel, when the trend is riddled with clichés, bad dialogue and overwhelmingly poor character development than I become frustrated, but because there are some novels that can take these trends and make me remember why they became popular in the first place I try my best to keep an open mind.
