BBAW Interview Swap!
BBAW Interview Swap!
My Partner is Amy from
Now for the Interview!
You need a girls night out, what 5 girls from a book would you want to go out with and why?
Oh my goodness. 5 girls? Let's see....Eve and Claire from The Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine, Harley from Instant Temptation by Jill Shalvis, Katniss from The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins and Mac from the Shadowfever series KMM.
You have to fight in an epic battle to save the world who are you picking and why?
Save the world? Please don't leave that up to me! I am going to say Katniss from The Hunger Games. That girl can survive and stay strong! Plus she could hunt us down something to eat when we need it because I can't cook!
Since this is posting on Tuesday, share a teaser with us from your book you are currently reading?
Well, I can't really share a teaser for the current book I am reading because it is a The Vampire Academy Graphic Novel. But I will give you the caption on the page I am on.
"Hey, Mason. Wipe the drool off your face. If you're gonna think about me naked, do it on your own time."
What are the top 3 books you've read this year?
Oh this is an easy one!
- Divergent by Veronica Roth
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (yes I was a late reader on this series!)
- Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning
If you could have any supernatural power, what would it be and why?
To move things with my mind. How cool would that be? That way I could clean the house while reading a book. What? Books are always before chores!
If you could meet an author alive or dead, who would you pick and why?
I will have to say author M. Leighton. She is the nicest author! We chat all of the time, but I haven't ever met her. One of these days though I will take her to lunch if I can. She is truly the best person to chat with and I am honored to be able to chat with her as much as I do.
When you review a book what things do you try to bring to your review?
I have always said that my reviews are more like my feelings on a book. The reactions that the writing brings out. I don't like to do a lot of summarizing when I write a review and instead focus on the emotions a book can create. I will include a summary, usually from Goodreads, and then a My Thoughts section. It will tell the reader whether I loved or didn't like it with my reasons for it, how I felt reading it whether it be swoon worthy or teary eyed overload. I don't like to include any type of spoilers though so I try and make the reader of my review have a peaked interest in the book than a final decision of yay or nay.
In lots of books the girl has a choice between 2 guys, what book did you feel the girl picked the wrong guy?
You know, I never had this problem until recently. I thought at first that Kaylee from The Soul Screamer Series by Rachel Vincent made a big mistake with her love interest for the series. But, by the end of the series, the author gave me the ending I wanted. From the get go, I could feel who Kaylee needed to be with and I kept hoping it would come to be. Thank goodness she smarted up by the finale!
Is there anything you would like to include in this interview, if so name it and give us your answer?
To just do your own thing! The most important thing I can say to new bloggers is don't follow the pack! That may sound mean to some people, but I have learned that being your own person makes a huge difference.
What book that has not released yet are you most looking forward to reading?
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. I will make a confession though....I have only read City of Bones! I have never read any of the others! *GASP!!!* I know, so why did I pick it? Those gorgeous freaking covers!!! Plus I do plan on reading them all at once next month!
Thanks Amy for your awesome answers!
