AwesomeSauce Interview-Black Fingernailed Review's

Sunday, February 27, 2011

Today's Awesome Blogger being interviewed is Khadija from  Black Fingernailed Review!!

1. Why do you Blog?

I blog about books, movies, music and what I think about them. My blog is my opinions on a number of subjects but usually focused on books. I blog for myself, to share my opinions. I don't blog because so many other people do, or because I want free books. I am crazy and erratic and spur of the moment, I have a completly unpredicatable personality and therefore my blog is completly unpredicatable. If I have one rule in blogging it's to always be myself. I blog simply because I love to read and write and it's fun.

2.What do you look for in a review?
When I'm reading a review I don't want it to be stiff and critical. I like easy to read reviews, something that shows the bloggers personality without being too silly. I look for honesty in a review and respect both positive and negative feedback. The one thing that really turns me off of a review is when the review is more of a summery of the book than an actual opinion or when somone says 'this book rocked' or 'this book sucked' without giving any further explination.

3. If you had to promote your blog in a tweet (140 characters or less)what would you say?

How about: Kick a$$ reviews of books, movies, music and other goolish things from a gothly Black Fingernailed clad teen!

4. If you could live in one of your favorite "book worlds" what one you pick?
The Vampire Diaries!!!! It was one of the first YA series I ever read and one that I hold a special place in my heart for. I think it would be pretty awesome to actually meet the characters (especially Damon)!

5. If you were trapped on a desserted island what 5 books would you take with you?

The Vampire Diaries: The Fury by LJ Smith (because it's my favorite book in the series)
 Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (for the mystery...and the love story)
 Dracula by Bram Stoker (because it's just awesome)
 Shiver by Maggie Steifvater and Other Words for Love by Lorainne Zago Rosenthall (because they are both so beautifully written).

6. Your bookshelf is on fire and you can only save what you can carry what books would that be?
My bookshelf is on fire? 0.0 NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
Other Words for Love by Lorainne Zago Rosenthal
Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers
The Vampire Diaries series by LJ Smith 


7. If you could switch places with one character from a book who would it be and why?
Bella Swan from Twilight because then she wouldn't be so whinny and annoying and I could fix everything that's wrong with the story. Ok that was mean and uncalled for, I really didn't like Twilight. Really though? Probably Claire from The Morganville Vampires series. I absalutly love the series and Claire and it would be pretty awesome to live in the same house with Eve, Michale, and Shane...even if that house is in a town infested with Vampires. 


8. If you had to choose a paranormal being to be what would you be? (like a vamp, were, fae, witch, demon etc anything like that)
A were-tiger (a white one) I just think it would be pretty cool to be able to turn into a tiger! I've always loved cats of all kinds and found something (although sinister) almost magestic about them. They seem so intellegent and protective. Being a fae is too complicated because they all have god-complexes (and that's so not me), I love the vamps but who really wants to be eternally damned and forced to suck people's blood to survive? (not me), witches have too many rules (i hate rules) and a demon is too bad and an angel is too good. So ya a white were-tiger ^-^ 

9. You're in a bookstore what section do you go to first?
Young Adult of course! Paranormal and Fantasy is always a must, I always hone in on contempary fiction, and as of late i've been giving si-fi fantasy some extra attention.

10. If you could meet an any author (alive or dead) who would you want to meet? and what would be the first question you would ask them?
Jane Austen: Why do all of your books have happy endings when you where so adament about writing stories of reality?

Thank you so so much for doing this!! Your answers were awesome and I had a lot of FUN!! Please go check out her blog @ Black Fingernailed Reviews

  6. Love this interview! I think your blog is pretty kick ass too! It's surprising to me how often I'm found in the YA section of the bookstore. I don't think I'm a young adult anymore, *sigh*
