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…

I Nominate…

The Liebster Award

  3. Answer the eleven questions the presenter asked you.
  4. Write eleven questions for the bloggers you nominated to answer.
  5. Lastly, copy the rules in this post.

iloveheartlandx’s Questions

  1. What do you love most about reading?
    What I love most about reading is being able to lose myself in the words, explore new (fantasy) worlds, and spend time with amazing characters.
  2. Favorite book blog that you’ve discovered this year?
    I don’t know. I’ve discovered a lot of wonderful book blogs this year.
  3. Why did you start blogging?
    I started blogging because I wanted to give blogging a try and because I wanted a place to talk about books. In 2014, I had an approximately ten month hiatus from blogging and then I began blogging again. I continued because I began to really enjoy it and a lot of book blogs are filled with great book recommendations.
  4. TV series that you love to binge-watch?
    I don’t exactly have a TV series that I love to binge-watch. But I am interested in seeing what becomes of the Shadowhunters TV series.
  5. Favorite movie?
    My favorite movie really depends on my mood. Generally movies I haven’t seen yet are the most entertaining, but all-time favorites would be Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit.
  6. Favorite book series?
    Again, it really depends on my mood. At the moment though, I really want to read The 5th Wave trilogy and The Lunar Chronicles since I haven’t read all the books.
  7. Favorite stand-alone book?
    I don’t often read stand-alone books, so when I do read one, it’s usually pretty good. I guess either Coraline or The Ocean At the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman. Both were beautifully written, but slightly creepy reads.
  8. If you could be any animal what would you be?
    Maybe a hawk–it would be fun to fly. Or a dog: dogs have such easy lives.
  9. Who is your favorite fictional character?
    That’s a hard one…I have so many favorite fictional characters. To pick one…Hermione Granger.
  10. What do you like to do outside of reading?
    Outside of reading, I enjoy writing, running, baking, and knitting.
  11. Who is your favorite singer?
    Amy Lee from Evanescence–she has a really beautiful voice. I would never have begun listening to her though if it weren’t for Veronica Roth’s Divergent playlist.

My Questions

  1. What film adaptation or any movie are you most excited for in 2016?
  2. What are three 2016 releases you are dying to read?
  3. What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?
  4. Do you have a pet?
  5. What is one book with a lot of hype that you like?

  7. What is one film adaptation you like more than the book?
  8. Pen or pencil?
