Would you rather experience a favorite series as if it were the first time, or receive early access to your most anticipated upcoming release with no review obligations?
I would rather receive early access. Every time I read my favorite books, I still get those first time butterflies. It’s why they are my favorites. 🙂
Do you seek out spoilers or avoid them at all costs?
I avoid them at all costs! When it’s a big book release, I go hermit. I put myself on a strict social media ban, hold off on blog hopping, and immerse myself in the book until I finish.
If you could arrange a meeting between any two characters from different books (or series), who would you pick and why?
It’d be very interesting to have these characters meet. Both characters are mischievous and self-sacrificing. It would be fun to see them interact.
Name a book that exceeded your initial expectations.
Oh wow….Most recently it was The Best Thing by Mariana Zapata.
All her books have been amazing but she really outdid herself with that one.
Take any of your favorite books and explain the plot badly.
Semi human young woman meets angry and old Hawk guy to learn how to control her powers so she can beat Ancient angry skin walker.
You get to compile a short story anthology with up to eight authors. Who do you invite, and what is the shared theme/motif?
I’m going to bring out all the Queens for this one. *cracks fingers*
Theme: Slow Burn Fantasy Romance with an Age Gap
- Holly Black
- Sarah J Maas
- Jennifer L Armentrout
- Richelle Mead
- Amanda Hocking
- Leigh Bardugo
- C.L Wilson
- Gail Carriger
What makes you feel better on a bad day?
A hot cup of black coffee and a book.
Do you have any reading quirks / interesting habits?
I wouldn’t say interesting but I have a habit of never opening a book more than 60 degrees so the spine doesn’t crease…..and I always dust and wipe my books down…at least twice a week.
If you could be pen pals with any fictional character, who would you pick and why?
This question is not fair in the slightest. *grumps*
There are so many characters I want to be penpals with! UGH!
But If I’d have to choose, I guess I would pick Alexa from the Parasol Protectorate Series.
What’s the hardest thing about blogging?
For me, I think the hardest thing about blogging is keeping my audience engaged. I don’t feel like I’m any good at what content I have in my blog and showing what makes me different from other bloggers…. It’s something I’m working on but sometimes I think about it too much.
Pick one of your favorite books (or series) and create a fitting ice cream flavor. What is it called, what does it look like, and how does it taste?
Bully by Penelope Douglas.
The ice cream flavor is called Push my buttons. It’s dark red with little black dots, and it tastes like Black Cherry, Vanilla, and a hint of mint.
