Questions:

  1. Dogs or Cats or Hamsters and Why?

Hamsters, eh? Hmmm…yeah, I gotta go with the dogs man. I’m usually more inclined to turn all mushy and psycho around the big dogs, but for some reason…Welsh Corgis have been just SLAYING me lately. Maybe it’s those short little legs, or all that white and tan fluff. Maybe it’s that stupid grin on their faces, or that everyone has some strange obsession with their butt fluff…I really don’t know.

(Yes, the Corgi but fluff thing, is a thing. Google it, seriously. You might die.)

2. If you could live in any period and any place in time when and where would it be?

OH MAN! I have pondered this one so many times. The idea of poodle skirts is so precious, but then there’s the flappers, booze and jazz. I mean I will swoon HARD over a man with a Tommy gun, but OoOoOo girl…those cowboys and Indians.

I’ll for the Victorian era though. Chaperoned dates and coursets that make you faint sound, more than enticing. C’mere boys, court the s**t out of me ❤

3. What is the last book you hated and why?

Amazon.com – The Other Inheritance (The Inheritance Series) (Volume 1) by Rebecca Jaycox

Francis Hardinge has stolen my heart, and Dreamland by Sarah Dessen and 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher will forever have my soul. Also, the 1-800-Where-R-U series is purely…life.

Amazon.com – A Face Like Glass by Franics Hardinge
Amazon.com – Dreamland by Sarah Dessen
Amazon.com – Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Amazon.com – When Lightning Strikes (1-800-Where-R-You) by Meg Cabot

5. What is something you wish people knew about you?

I wish my friends new just how serious my reading obsession was, so they would start buying me books instead of nail polish and purses.

6. How long have you been blogging?

It’s been 2 years!!!! Yay me.

7. What is your favorite type of character in a book?

I love a strong female character who kicks some serious ass, and also that male character who is a complete jerk but has that whole mysterious thing going on.

Yah, I know. Don’t judge me.

8. What is your favorite TV show?

Not a big TV person, I prefer books and movies. Though I just watched The OA which was SICK, and I love American Horror Story. Plus…Silicon Valley. Nerd so hard.

Halloween. Because black all day every day.

Draco Malfoy, Jared from Silicon Valley, and Jess from 1-800-Where-R-U

The Questions:

1. Why did you start a blog in the first place?

My mom was actually the person that gave me the idea to start a book reviewing blog a little over a year ago. I had no idea that there was THIS much of a book following on the internet and social media, it honestly blew me away. I looked into blogging about books that I read in my spare time, started a blog, and like THAT I had various authors contacting me asking to read/review their work. So here we are.

2. What is your favorite book?

I truly hate getting asked this question. It is literally impossible for me to choose just one book because I have enjoyed SO many. I usually just say Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher because I had read this when I was in my preteen years and it left a dark hole in my heart. It is one of the few books that has left a serious imprint on my mind, and for that I will always love it.

3. What do you dislike the most?

Unsarcastic sarcasm.

4. What is your favorite food item at the mall?

? What? The mall, Really? Is this a thing..?

5. What is your favorite pastime? 

Ignoring the world and reading of course.

I also like going out with my guy friends and dancing really weirdly around them until they get completely weirded out and embarrassed by me and just leave. I like that.
