Ariana’s Questions

  1. What are some new releases you are most looking forward to in 2016?
    So many! New 2016 releases that I’m most looking forward to would include Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, Traitor’s Pyre by Josephine Angelini, A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir, ToG #6 by Sarah J. Maas, The Young Elites #3 by Marie Lu, The Last Star by Rick Yancey, Truthwitch by Susan Dennard, Passenger by Alexandra Bracken, and Stars Above by Marissa Meyer.
  2. What is you favorite under-hyped book?
    Favorite under-hyped books…probably Origin by Jessica Khoury and The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson.
  3. What is one thing (activity, song, movie, etc…) that always makes you happy no matter what?
    Reading. The large majority of the time I’m reading a fairly enjoyable book.
  4. Do you prefer series or standalone novels?
    I do not mind standalone novels, although I have a harder time finding standalone novels that I like, so I’d say series. Plus if I like the series I get to read more of it.
  5. Do you play video games? If so, what are your favorite games to play?
    I do not play video games.
  6. What is your favorite song of all time?
    Lithium by Evanescence.
  7. If you could have any fictional animal as a pet, what would you choose?
    Either Fleetfoot (Throne of Glass) or Fawkes (Harry Potter).
  8. What 2016 movies are you most looking forward to seeing?
    I’m really looking forward to seeing The 5th Wave and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children in 2016 since they’re both film adaptations based on two of my favorite books.
  9. What book or series would you recommend to someone who says they don’t like to read, and why would you choose that book or series?
    To someone who does not read very often, what book or series would I recommend? It really depends on the person. To everyone (unless if they dislike fantasy) I’d recommend the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling because who could go wrong with these books? To people who prefer more realistic fiction, The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart because it’s a well-developed novel with unique characters. To people who prefer very action packed books, The Maze Runner by James Dashner because my heart would not stop pounding during my first read of the series.
  10. What is your absolute favorite quote?
    I have many favorite quotes, but to pick one…

11 Facts About Me

  1. It’s difficult for me to not always do with something productive with my hands–

Tasha’s Questions

  1. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Do you have a favorite Christmas themed drink?
    Not really…
  2. What would you say is the best book you have read in 2015?
    Any book from the ENTIRE Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas is an amazing read.
    Special Book Set - Throne of Glass Series.
  3. If you could invite any three authors to dinner who would they be and what would you cook?
    Oh I really don’t know to both parts of the question. One: J.K. Rowling because she is a wonderful writer and the creator of one of my favorite fantasy worlds. Two: Suzanne Collins because I love The Hunger Games trilogy and how she builds the suspense for the reader. Three: Sarah J. Maas because she is a fabulous creator of strong female protagonists. E.g. Aelin Galathynius, Manon Blackbeak, Nesryn, Nehemia, Lysandra, Elide 🙂 Six terrific heroines are introduced within the span of five books! Back on topic, I honestly have no idea what I would cook–maybe something inspired by their books?
  4. You’ve won the jackpot! What would be the first thing you would spend your winnings on?
    Books. There are so many great books that I have not read yet.
  5. Any particular country you want to visit?
    England because of the Harry Potter series.
  6. What’s your dream career?
    My dream career would probably be as a novelist and a copyeditor.
  7. Is there a certain food item that you hate and if so why?
    I can’t think of a food item that I hate with a vengeance, but there are many that I don’t enjoy. I guess I’m not a huge fan of mushrooms…
  8. What do you think of the John Lewis Christmas advert this year?
    I have not seen the John Lewis Christmas advert this year, so I do not know.
  9. What are some of your hobbies apart from blogging?
    Some of my hobbies apart from blogging are writing, running, baking, knitting, and origami.
  10. Are you a lover or a fighter?
    I wouldn’t consider myself one or the other.
