Nya’s Questions

1. What is your favorite childhood book?

My favorite childhood book would probably be The Chronicles of Harris Burdick, which is a neat anthology of short stories with black and white photographs like the novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

2. E-books or printed books?

I definitely prefer printer books because I love the feel of turning the pages. Also  it’s much easier to turn pages and I do not need to charge any device to read them.

3. What is your favorite place to read?

My favorite place to read depends on the weather, but would probably either be my desk or bed.

4. Is there any genre you would never read?

I generally avoid informational texts (writing books exempted) and realistic fiction.

5. What’s your review rating system?

My review rating system has five levels, which is based on a 5-star scale. My Rating page describes my rating system.

6. What is your favorite fictional character?

I have many favorite fictional characters, however my all-time favorite character would have to be Katniss from The Hunger Games. Her character is really tough, but at the same time selfless and compassionate. She also went through so much and still survived.

7. What was the best film adaption of a book?

I think that the best film adaption of a book is all the Harry Potter films. I was not disappointed one bit. The actors were very good and the film stuck true to the story.

8. How do you chose the next book to read?

I choose my next reading book by making a list of all the books I want to read and then select the one with the most intriguing plot synopsis.

9. Top 3 authors?

My top 3 authors would have to be Sarah J. Maas, Cassandra Clare, and Suzanne Collins.

10. Is there any book release you are particularly looking forward to?

Yes! I’m really looking forward to the release of Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs, which is the third book in the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series. It will be released on September 22, 2015. I’m also looking forward to the release of A Torch Against The Night by Sabaa Tahir, which is the An Ember in the Ashes sequel.

At the top of my head, I can’t think of a least favorite book. If I had to name one, my least favorite book is Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I disliked that book because of parts of the content and the author’s writing style, which was difficult to follow. However, there were some good points the author made.

My guilty pleasure (and probably a top pleasure) is reading at the wrong times (e.g. walking on the sidewalk).
