The Obsessive Bookseller Takes on a Bookish Q&A

Hosted by The Mile Long Bookshelf, challenged by Chanzie at Mean Who You Are

How old are you?

27… for a few more weeks.

What books are you reading?

I always have several going at once (just look at my Goodreads profile)

What are you wearing?

This is a creepy question. ;)

One True Pairing?

I think this question is wondering which series I was born to read, and I’d have to say anything by Robin Hobb.

Blogger or WordPress?

I’ve worked with both but prefer WordPress… It’s prettier.

Do you prefer going outside and being active or staying in and reading a book?

you’re really asking the wrong person this, but I will say if I have a choice I prefer to combine the two.

What is the last book you read?

Throne of Glass – it was every bit as good as everybody said it was!

What is the book you’re going to read next?

caliban's war

Caliban’s War, book 2 in Corey’s Leviathan Wakes series… I’m in the mood for a great space opera!

E-books – yes or no?

Definitely – it makes it so much more convenient for road trips and even at work. I’m super anal about the condition of my books, so the ereader allows me to leave them at home where there safe and sound! I will say, if I loved an e-book I always eventually buy it in hardcopy.

Where do you prefer to read?

Anywhere I can recline and put my feet up. Preferably with animals and/or husband snuggled nearby.

Whose blog did you look at last?

Blog of Erised and Speculating on SpecFic

Who is your favorite book blogger?

This is a toughie because I have several that I visit frequently (and love) but two bloggers from the previous question are the ones who consistently blog about the books I’m most interested in.

What do you do when someone tells you reading is boring?

Who is the last published author you spoke to?

Kimberly Derting… who might be my new hero – she’s hilarious!

Who is your all-time favorite book character?

kahlan_amnell_wallpaper_by_radillacviii-d2yudf9

Hands down, Kahlan from the Sword of Truth series by Goodkind.

If you hated reading, what would you be doing instead?

I’d like to say out playing sports or creating my next artistic masterpiece, but I would probably be watching TV (although I do a fair bit of that now).

How many bookshelves/bookcases do you have? 

12… here’s a few:

(Aren’t they pretty?)

If you have the choice to meet all of your favorite book bloggers or all of your favorite authors, which would you pick?

Let’s face it, all of you awesome book bloggers out there are a heckuva lot easier to get in touch with than all of my favorite authors… I promise to bring you back some signed copies for some giveaways, though.

Insta loves – yes or no?

It depends entirely on how it’s done. As a reader, I have to be able to see at least a few compelling reasons why the characters are so suddenly drawn together. It also has to make sense within the story – I’m not big on a love story just for the sake of having one. My husband and I came together with a sort of insta love, so I know the draw between two people can be really powerful right from the beginning.

Favorite author?

Richelle Mead… particularly for her Succubus series. Although I will say I am incredibly fond of Patrick Rothfuss.

What is the number one book on your wish list?

I want a hardcover edition of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss for my collection.

Do you prefer books with female or male protagonists?

It actually came as a shock to me to discover that several of my blogging friends don’t like books with male protagonists. I’m more interested in story and strength of character than gender and have loved books with both male and female leads.

Which is your favorite book to film adaptation?

IMG_4638

The Lord of the Rings, extended editions! Although I will say the way they portrayed Hunger Games and Catching Fire knocked my socks off!

Which do you enjoy writing more – negative reviews or positive reviews? 

I absolutely enjoy the finished product of positive reviews more, but they tend to take five times longer than the negative ones. I feel compelled to get the wording just right to convey exactly how amazing the book was for me.

Who are you going to tag?

I don’t think I’m going to tag anybody specifically for this challenge, but I always love learning more about my fellow book bloggers so feel free to participate!
