Questions by Madlha
1. Why did you start blogging?
I began blogging because I read all the time and wanted to tell people about the awesome books I was reading! Unfortunately, none of my family or friends really read tons so they go sick of hearing about my books. Therefor, the internet was the best place to go! Plus the blogging community totally rocks! Everyone is so amazing!

2. Sunrise or sunset?
I am a total sunrise girl! Mostly because I am an early riser for sure! 

3. Do you judge a book by its cover?
Yes.. sadly its true, unless I have heard someone liked it. But come on, would you pick up a book if it looked horrible and you havent heard anyone say something about it?

4. What is the most exciting thing you have ever done?
The most exciting thing for me was probably swimming with dolphins in Mexico. Ive never really done something like crazy exciting like skydiving or anything. I prefer to keep my feet on the ground, I am no thrill seeker lol. I would rather read about it in a book :)

5. If you had to give up any of your senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste, touch) which would it be and why?
I would totally give up hearing. I love music and all but I love reading way to much to give up eyesight, I love food way to much to give up taste and smell(ever hold you nose and try to eat? You taste nothing!), and what human could go without touch? Unless I was Juliette from Shatter Me and I was that Kick Butt! Then I would maybe give up touch.

6. Which in your opinion is your favorite Book to Movie transition?
My favorite book to movie transition is so girly!! It is totally The Notebook! I just love that time period and lets be honest Ryan Gosling is not hard to drool over! but can I just say how excited I am about the Divergent movie coming out next year??? I bet it will be my new favorite!

7. Most embarrassing story you are willing to share online?
I really dont get embarrassed by a lot of things. I fal in front of people all the time, I say stupid stuff quite a bit and also I am a nerd but I am totally okay with all of it! I really cant think of any major embarrassing stories, but I also could have easily blocked them from my mind because they were so bad lol 

8. Your favorite book as a child?
I was a weird child when it came to reading. I loved to read books but I only liked reading half of them and then I would start a new one! My mom says she only saw me finish 1 book and it was a Goosebumps book! I didnt really start reading books all the way through till high school when I picked up Crank  by Ellen Hopkins. 

9. Which book are you highly anticipating to read?
The 3rd Divergent for sure!!!! Ahhh I must know what happens next!!! Also, Requiem the 3rd book in the Delirium series! It comes in my mail on Tuesday! Eeeek!

10. Who is your favorite character from a book/movie and why?
My favorite character would have to be either Juliette from Shatter Me because she is so kick butt!!! or it would be Elliot from For Darkness Shows The Stars by Diana Peterfreud because Elliot is so strong in this book! She isn't a female who needs help, she takes care of others!

11. Have a book boyfriend/girlfriend? Who is it and why?
Of course!! I am in love with Alex from Delirium for sure! but also, I am kind of sneaking around on the side with Adam from Shatter Me. Shhh don't tell Alex!

  1. Thank you for the nomination!:)Sorry, I have been super busy these days and did not see this until now.

    1. No problem! you totally deserved to be nominated!

  2. Thanks for the nomination! My job has eaten away at my time and I'm only just remembering this! BAD Courtney! But, thank you so much! I'm gonna have to make this happen asap :)

    1. NP! You totally deserve it! you got an awesome blog!

  3. Congrats!! I don't think there's any shame in judging a book by its cover. Isn't that what the cover is for? The 1920s seem like they were an amazing time.
