Dream cast your current read!

Well, this is awkward. I’m not currently reading anything. But if I were, and a male character needed to be cast, then by all means Tom Felton could have the part.

Summer Break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?

Somewhere cold, honestly. I’d love to be in New England. So calm and cool.

A Book Blogger is Born: What made you decide to start your very own book blog?

About two summers ago I became really bored. I’d had no job at the time, and so ended up spending a majority of all that free time reading and scouring the internet. I’d somehow come across a book blog. I don’t remember which it was, but I clicked from link to link, to other book blogs. I was instantly enamored with the idea of people having book discussions online. And the sense of community was so strong. I wanted that. At the same time I’d also heard about a classmate starting their own book blog. Needless to say, I went to their site and took it all in. I knew I could do the same. And part of me wanted the challenge of creating a more successful blog. From there, the ideas flooded. It was all I could think about. I’d sit with pads of paper and write whatever blog names came to mind. I’d ask my family and friends if any stood out, if any reflected me. I’d make them vote. And then the planning ensued.

Outside of the internet, I don’t have very many friends who read as much as I do, or at all. And my friends who do read consistently read other genres, so we never have common ground for discussion. But I craved it so badly. So, without knowing what to do or how to even run a blog, I dove in and created TGR.

I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t been so bored and found the book blog, or heard about my classmate’s blog. It was just one little moment that kick started all of this. And I couldn’t be happier with the outcome!

Fight! Fight! If you could have two fictional characters battle it out (preferably from books), who would they be and who do you think would win?

James Potter versus Severus Snape.

I don’t know why. I just think it would be epic. Fight to the death for Lily?

Team Snape, baby!

What is one book I would be nervous to see made into a movie adaptation?

Anna and the French Kiss. Or Daughter of Smoke and Bone. In the case of Anna, I just don’t think any actors could take the place of Anna and Etienne; I don’t think it would work, and I don’t think they could capture all of their essence. In the case of Smoke and Bone, there’s just so much awesome that I think a lot of it would be left out in a movie.

Have you ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review?

I’m not sure I’ve BOUGHT a book for that reason, but I’ve definitely checked out a book because of a bad review. As soon as I see something get less than three stars, I’ll search through Goodreads and Amazon reviews to see if people felt similarly or not. So I guess, in a way, bad reviews compel me to look further into a book, but I don’t recall ever buying a book because of a bad review.

Do you read one book at a time, or switch between multiple?

I read one book at a time. If I happen to start two books around the same time, I will not switch between them. I will finish reading one, and then the other. If I try to read more than one, I feel that I get lost between the stories. I prefer to have my full attention on one story.

What is the best and worst book you’ve read in the last month?

Considering I’ve only recently had time to read for fun again, the best book I’ve read in the past month is Bittersweet by Sarah Ockler, and the worst was Little House in the Big Woods (for my Children’s Lit class).

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done to get your hands on any particular book?

I’ve never done anything crazy to get a book. In fact, the thought of doing something crazy to obtain a book kind of sickens me – unless, of course, it’s all in good nature. But otherwise I’m happy to contribute to book sales by doing things the old-fashioned/not crazy way: buying books for myself.

Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

10. As far as leaving books unread goes, I’m not a fan. When I have a lot of unread books sitting around, I tend to either stop reading entirely for a bit, or while reading one of the books I’m too distracted and anxious to read the next. It’s not a good mix!

If you had to spend eternity inside the pages of a book which book would you choose and why?

I know it’s going to be the #1 answer, but….. c’mon. Is there really any contest? I have to choose the Harry Potter series. I’d be perfectly content spending my days at Hogwarts.

But, since I’ve yet to receive my acceptance letter, I suppose spending some time in Neverland wouldn’t be so bad, so long as Peter shared his inability to grow up.
