1. What was the last book you loved so much?
Oh gosh, this is a tough one because I’ve read so many great books recently. Probably of the last several the one that made me most excited would be Wolfsong by TJ Klune. I never thought I’d love a shifter romance, but this book kind of made me love werewolves.
2. What is a character from a book that you can never forget?
Maia from The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison, I just love that book so much and I want to give Maia all the hugs ever. He’s too precious.
3. Has your genre of books you read changed since you were young?
Hmm, in some ways? I’ve always been into fantasy since I was little but I think I’ve also gone through a few fads over the years. At one point I was super into mysteries, then I went through a historical fiction phase. Then there were the romance years. I’ve been reading mostly SFF for the last several years now, with some of the others mixed in now and then.
4. How often do you actually go to a library anymore?
I used to LIVE at my library. Now days I mostly do digital check outs. Still, I try to go to my local branch at least once a month and check out some books.
5. What’s the one book you’ve always wanted to read but haven’t yet?
6. If you could choose anywhere in the world to read a book, where would you read one?
Somewhere outside where there is nature but there’s a cool breeze, somewhere with a view. I like gardens. And hills. But without a lot of people around. Sometimes I like going to Little Round Top at Gettysburg, but there’s usually too many tourists roaming around. I also like hanging out at Ladew Gardens. I don’t know where else in the world I’d rather be because I’ve never been there to test it before! Short answer: somewhere with a view and great weather.
7. What book world would you actually be okay with living in?
None! Unless there’s an actual utopia somewhere. Maybe a Star Trek novel lol.
8. What is some of your favorite book series?
- The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews
- The Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich
- The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher
I have a thing for mysteries still, I suppose, lol.
9. What animal do you wish could also read a book?
I don’t know…maybe a panda? Not my cat, that’s for sure. He’d get such a big head.
10. What’s the next few books you want to get?
- The Queen of Nothing by Holly Black
- Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater
- The Hanged Man by KD Edwards
Looking forward to all of these~!
11. Have you ever read a book in a different language other than English before?
Nope! I only know English, sadly. Although I have read a few words in Japanese before when I was learning, using a manga, but I’m horribly out of practice and I never got really far because I’m terrible at sticking to things.
