- What are your top 3 reads of 2015?
That’s a tough question. To go with some books I don’t mention that often: The Ocean At the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini, and Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs.
- What was the worst book you read in 2015?
I was very fortunate to read so many wonderful books in 2015, I did not encounter a book I disliked.
- Favorite Genre?
Young adult fantasy–it’s so addictive.
- Genre you will not touch?
I will generally never touch a book that’s just romance (exceptions: Jane Eyre–but this book has mystery elements as well). While I’m okay with a book having some romance in it, I do not like romance dominated plots.
- Name a book that had a lot of hype, but you ended up hating it.
Six of Crows had a lot of hype. I did not necessarily dislike it, but it didn’t meet all of my exceptions either.
- Did you have a Goodreads goal this year? If so, did you finish it?
I did not have a GoodReads goal in 2015, but I have one for 2016. Hopefully I’ll be able to read 50 books this year, since I read 54-some last year. So far, I’ve read 5 books.
- If you could kill any fictional character (Books, Movies, or TV) without getting in trouble, who would it be and why?
If I could kill any fictional character without getting in trouble, I’d say Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter. She was so nasty, evil, and irritating, but I don’t think she ever died.
- How many books are on your TBR?
138 books–a number which has significantly been growing since I began blogging.
- If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would buy?
- Do you have any siblings?
No, but I do have a very adorable dog who I count as a sibling.
- What is your dream job?
My dream job would probably be as a novelist, poet, and editor.
