What’s your favorite blog post you’ve ever written?
I’ve only written a few posts so far and they’ve all been fun to write. One that I really enjoyed writing is“US Vs UK Book Covers: Which One do you Prefer?” I didn’t realize that there are so many gorgeous book covers of the same books!
What’s your favorite blog post (not your own) that you’ve ever read?
My favourite blog post was written by an amazing book blogger, Marie @Drizzle and Hurricane Books. The post is called “Feeling Validation as a Book Blogger and Why it Matters” It’s such a honest and great post. She explains that she feels so happy when people care about her content, such as when they take the time to comment on her posts or when they think of her for a book tag. I relate to this post so much! Also, Marie is such a sweet and kind person. You should go visit her blog! 🙂
If you could meet one author, dead or alive, who would it be?
Suzanne Collins! I read The Hunger Games trilogy a few years back and it was one of the first books I read in the young adult genre. I grew so attached to the characters in the books and I would love to know more about them. Meeting Suzanne Collins would give me a chance to talk with her about the series and hear her thoughts on the characters she created.
What’s your dream job?
I’m not sure yet exactly what I want to do in the future but I would love a job that involves interacting with others and public speaking. I love getting to meet new people and sharing my thoughts with others. I also enjoy taking on leadership roles and responsibilities. So perhaps my dream job would be a career in the business industry?
What’s the worst book you’ve read this year?
I liked most of the books I’ve read so far this year (I haven’t read that many yet but I’m excited for a lot more reading during the summer break!). One that I didn’t like as much is Reached by Ally Condie. But to be fair I didn’t finish the book so maybe it got better towards the end? The book for me was too slow and I felt that this series would have been better as a standalone.
What’s your favorite book quote?
One quote that I really like: “We have all sorts of words that could describe us. But we get to choose which ones are most important.” -Windfall by Jennifer E. Smith
Who is your favorite super villain?
Hmm.. I don’t really watch many fantasy/action movies or shows and I don’t read enough books in those genres either. I can’t think of an answer at the moment! 😦
If you could bring any fictional object (weapon, clothing, food etc.) into the real world, what would it be?
I would love to bring the Mockingjay pin Katiniss wears in the Hunger Games series. I think the pin is a symbol of strength and standing up for our beliefs. The pin would be a great daily reminder to work hard, live life to the fullest, and to have courage 🙂
What TV show have you binge-watched lately?
I’ve just finished, after a little more than half a year, the show Brooklyn Nine-Nine (there’s five seasons of it so far)! It’s an amazing sitcom and I recommend everyone to watch it! The show takes place in a police precinct and the main characters are detectives.
If you were writing a novel, what would it be about?
This is a difficult question to answer because I’ve never really thought about writing my own book yet! Hmm.. I’m not sure exactly what the plot of the story would be, but I would definitely want to write a book that is meaningful to me and something that would inspire others.
Your bookshelf is on fire (God forbid!) which one book do you save from the flames? Why that one?
Since I’ve already mentioned the Hunger Games a few times in this post, I’m going to pick the book The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, written by John Boyle. This book (and movie) is well written, very emotional, and thought provoking. It is a historical fiction that takes place in World War Two. The main characters are nine years old, which is a lot younger than most characters in books. This book impacted me and I would definitely save it from my bookshelf if it was on fire!
Those were my answers to Angelica’s questions. Thanks Angelica, your questions were great!
