Thank you theplanethetrainthejourney for tagging me
1) What’s your favorite book cover?
It would definitely have to be Snow Like Ashes.
2) What book has the most interesting storyline in your opinion?’
Heir of Fire. It’s the book I have been reading as of late and all of the different POV changes, though they sometimes change with a cliff hanger, introduces all of these different plots which keep me entranced.
3) What’s on thing you wish you could tell publishers?
I guess it would have to be to cut new authors a little slack and give them a chance
4) Is there something on your bookshelf that isn’t a book? If so, what?
Yes, I have this little elephant figurine my great-great aunt Joanie gave me when I was younger. There’s a little superstition where if the tusks face a door or window it will bring luck so that’s what it’s doing.
5) What was your favorite story that you read growing up?
My favorite when I was in sixth grade, when I kept getting in trouble for reading instead of working, which was Eragon
6) Do you have any fond memories of books?
I remember spending time outside reading a book while laying on a rock and, though I feel like a weirdo admitting it, I actually felt the most peaceful when I did that. Now I just hide away in my room to read.
7) Is there anything that could be on the cover of a book that would instantly make you pick it up?
Either an interesting cover or title. That’s how I came across Snow Like Ashes. I walked into Barnes & Noble to grab my mom a book for her birthday with my aunt, and my aunt made me grab a book, telling me she’d pay for it. I walked into the fantasy section and it stood out to me.
8) Do you have any bookish pet peeves?
If the main character has an annoying ‘voice’ or is a bit too cocky about themselves I will start rolling my eyes whenever they talk and usually start hoping the villain will take care of them
9) What’s one book you find really overhyped?
Insurgent. I read the first book way before it became popular, and once it did everyone told me to read the second. I reluctantly did and found myself mostly disappointed.
10) What book is the most recent addition to your collection?
I did a little stop at B&N and grabbed a few classics. So they would have to be The Divine Comedy, The Art of War, and Treasure Island.
11) What genre of book have you really been avoiding?
Nonfiction. I had to read it last year for school and it never really did it for me.
