- Paperback, Hardcover or EBook? Why?
Physical form. I don't care if it's Paperback or Hardcover. Ebooks are nice and easy to hold onto, but it's much more fun to actually hold the book in your hand.
- What’s the last book that made you cry?
There are only four books that have made me cry. Only four. The last one was Bright Blue Miracle by Becca Wilhite. It's super tiny, so I have no idea how it did, but I bawled like a baby.
- Would you rather have super strength or super intelligence?
- What do you look forward to in a book?
Great writing, interesting and original plot lines, characters with depth, swoon-worthy romance, awesome action scenes, historical accuracy/deets if it's Historical Fiction...basically I look for perfection. :D
- Would you choose to live forever if you could?
Nope. I think it would get boring after a while. Plus I'd probably get annoyed at seeing people make the same mistakes I did, even though they had examples to learn from.
- What book are you most excited to read this year?
Right now I'm dying to read LET THE SKY FALL, & STRANDS OF BRONZE AND GOLD. They both come out in March! After that, I'm excited for THE WARD, TAKEN & THE COLLECTOR in April, MAID OF SECRETS & TRANSPARENT in May, ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE and IN THE AFTER, in June, THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US & BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA in July, DECEPTION in August, and in the fall; The HOUSE OF HADES & DIVERGENT #3
- What’s your favorite book of 2013 so far?
To be honest I haven't done much reading yet. It's quite terrible of me. I've had lots of school getting in my way, and I'm on a YA reading challenge/ban until April so that's cut back the flow. :-/
- How far into a book can you tell if you are going to like it or not?
Generally within the first chapter or so. By then I can have a good judge of the writing style, which is big for me, as well as the narrative voice and the plotline.
- What’s your favorite book cover of all time?
Um...WOW. That's a hard one. It's always changing, I'm always fawning over one cover or another. But I guess if I have to pick one for RIGHT NOW, I would have to say......(ugh this is very hard).....The Ward y Jordana Frankel. What an awesome photoshop job! Tehe!
- Do you prefer reading long or short reviews?
Longer. I write longer reviews, and I like to know lots of details about what they liked and didn't like about the books. If I'm in a rush I love short reviews for a quick assessment, but if it's a book I REALLY want then I like to know more about what the reader thought.
