The rules and who I nominated are at the end of my post.
Let the Questions Begin!
Questions from Books and Palettes:
- If I could change one thing about myself, What would it be?
I am really really shy. I almost never talk unless I have to. Its actually why it took so long for me to start blogging. I get really nervous talking to people even online. I’ve had a lot of fun interacting with people though since I’ve started my blogging though.
- If I could change one thing about my blog,What would it be?
Hmm, honestly there is a lot I would like to change about my blog. Since it is so new I have been playing around with everything right now. The biggest thing I want to change is the sidebar. I don’t have everything I would like there yet.
- What is your least favorite book cover?
I actually went on Goodreads and browsed through covers to find one that stuck out to me. I picked this one
- Would I rather have books as hands or bookmarks as fingers?
This one was a hard one I had no idea if I wanted to say. I am always losing my bookmarks so that would be really convenient. I guess I would choose to have books for hands though. They way I always have something to read.
- What is my favorite book?
This is such a hard question to answer. My favorite anything switches all the time I guess right now I am really in to Pretty Girl by Amy Heugh. I really loved it when I read it and haven’t been able to stop thinking about.
- Where do you get your books?Why?
Almost all books I read in print are from my library. I love going to the library and have been going for over 13 years. I love the people at libraries as well as the fact that libraries have huge selections. For my kindle I get books in varied places. I get books from Amazon(free ones only) and recently I have been getting e-arcs from authors. I’m think about making posts about different places I get books in the future.
- Where is my favorite place to read
My favorite place to read is on my couch. I usually read there most of the time. Its perfect right by a window for natural light and a lamp next to it to read when its darker. I can also read while watching t.v.
- Do I like magazines or books better?
I love books so much more than magazines. I don’t really read magazines except occasionally 17 magazine.
- Why did I start blogging?
I love reading other peoples book blogs as well as follow a lot of people in the booktube community. I also don’t have any friends around myself that read. I like talking about books and what I thought about them and didn’t really have a place to do that so I thought I would make my own place to chat books at.
- What is the funniest scene you have ever read?
I just posted a review for These Broken Stars a few days ago. All I can think about is Traver’s snarky comments towards Lilac while they are lost in the middle of nowhere, While she is pouting in a big fluffy dress and high heels.
- What is a genre you don’t usually read but wish you could read more of?
When I was way younger I read a lot of books in the mystery and horror genre. I got really tired of them and haven’t read a lot of them in years. I would love to get more in to them in the future.
Questions from Tika:
- What do you like the most about being a book blogger?
I love interacting and talking with other bloggers and readers. The best part so far in my journey blogging is defiantly all of discussions.
- What book has been your hardest to review. Why?
I haven’t reviewed a lot of books yet but the hardest books for me to review are the ones where its ok but nothing to rave about or that bad about it. This is usually a 3 star rating for me. Its hard for me to find the balance between praises it and being critical about the book.

~Harry Potter- first books to tell me there was really great books out there
~Magic Treehouse- the first books I remember reading on my own
~Goosebumps- I remember watch the show and reading the books while growing up
- What is your favorite trilogy? (not series)
I have a confession I almost never finish series,especially trilogies.I somehow forget about them or get to lazy to hunt down the next book in the series, Whoops! The only one I have read and finished in the last few years is The Curse Workers trilogy by Holly Black.
If you were living in a Dystopian world where as a team, you had to overthrow the government or society,what 4 other fictional characters would you choose to assist you?
Hmm, This one is really tough to answer.
~Hermione Granger- The brains of the team
~Allie Sekemoto- badass vampire from The Blood of Eden Series
~Cassel Sharpe-His ability would be super helpful from The Curse Workers series
~ Celaena Sardothien-Assasian from Throne of Glass series
Okay 95% of the reason I picked them are because I would just really want to hang out with them. To be far though I don’t think any government could take down my team.
- If you could re-write any book, what would it be? Why?
I decided to pick a book I gave 4 stars to and tell why it didn’t get the last star. I picked Lydia Kang’s Control. The only major concern I had with this is the fact that our main Zel acted like she couldn”t trust anyone. This resulted in her making really stupid mistakes that could of been avoided if she would of just sucked up her pride.
- Have a book boyfriend or girlfriend? Spill the tea on who they are.
More like I have a hundred but I decided to pick one that I actually had a chance at working a relationship out with. This basically means I picked a “normie” living in a normal world.
Beck from OCD Love Story I wasn’t actually planning on picking him originally but I do love him. I have OCD as well nowhere near as strong as his but atleast we would understand each other. Plus he was a really lovable love interest in the book.
