1. What is your favorite book?
My favorite book depends on whether the question means current favorite or all-time favorite. Currently, my favorite book is Eragon by Christopher Paolini. Over all, my favorite book is either The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins or Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling.
2. What are your goals? For the year? For your life?
My current goals are: submit work to a literary magazine and finish a manuscript.
3. Are you a writer? If so, tell me about your work.
I’m a writer who enjoys writing fiction and book reviews.
4. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
If I could go anywhere in the world, I would visit Greece or Rome because of their interesting history and mythology.
5. What was the last movie you saw in the theatre and was it worthwhile?
The last movie I saw in the theatre was Inside Out. Personally, I didn’t think it was worthwhile. It just wasn’t my type of movie. Update: The last movie I saw was actually Jurassic Park and I really liked it.
6. I’m curious, are there any books that you’ve tried to read and simply couldn’t finish? This is a no judgement zone.
Not that I can remember. There are books that I find hard to keep reading, so I just set them down and then pick them up again several months later.
7. Are you currently working on a new book/project right now? If it’s secret, you don’t have to tell me about it. If so, however, I hope it’s going well.
8. If you could live in any of your favorite books, which one would you choose?
If I could live in any of my favorite books, I would choose to live in the world of Harry Potter. It just sounds like such a fun and literally magical world.
9. Are there any book-to-movie adaptations that you think are just incredible? That you absolutely hated?
I thought the Lord of the Rings movie and The Hobbit adaptions were amazing and maybe even better than the books. Harry Potter and The Hunger Games also had awesome movie adaption. I also liked the movie adaption of Little Women. Unfortunately, there were some movie adaptions that I don’t think do the books justice. To name two: The Lightning Thief and The Sea of Monsters. The characters weren’t as I envisioned them in the books and a lot of funny scenes and characters were cut.
10. What do you look for in a book that you want to read? What’s the first thing to capture your attention?
I look for a good plot synopsis in a book. Usually the first thing to capture my attention is the cover.
11. If you’re an author, what do you do when you first get an idea for a book?
I’m not an author, but I enjoy writing. Usually when I first get an idea for the book I launch into planning immediately on Microsoft Word.
12. How do you feel about different genres? Romance? YA? Sci-Fi? Poetry? Do you have any favorites? Any least-favorites?
I like dystopian books, YA is also good sometimes. Sci-Fi is interesting too, if it has a bit of dystopia in it. Memoirs can be pretty interesting, but generally I don’t read non-fiction. Haunting and intriguing mysteries like And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie can capture my attention, too.
13. If you could meet any writer in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
If I could meet any writer in the world, it would be James Dashner because I have a lot of questions about the ending to the Maze Runner trilogy. (e.g. Why did so many characters die?)
14. Do you prefer Fiction or Non-Fiction?
I prefer fiction.
15. Are there any characters that everyone loves that you can’t stand? Or vice versa?
Most of the time, I pick books with protagonists that I like. One character that I found difficult to read was Hazel Lancaster from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
16. What do you like to do besides reading/writing?
Besides reading and writing, I occasionally enjoy drawing random shapes when I have writer’s block, doing origami, baking, or running.
17. If you could be remembered for one thing, what would it be?
I don’t know.
18. What is your favorite guilty pleasure book?
My favorite guilty pleasure book is Nancy Drew. The story lines are relatively simple and it’s the kind of book that I might enjoy reading on a rain day in bed.
19. Do you have a reading goal set for this year?
I don’t have reading goals. I just read whatever I currently fancy.
20. Tell me anything about yourself that I haven’t asked. Random fact. Weird human trick. Whatever.
I am a bibliophile as well as a reader.
