These questions were posed by Jessie over at Ageless Pages Reviews and I never got tagged so I just decided to do it on my own after her co-blogger, Danielle, answered the questions.
1. Thank the blogger that nominated you and link back to their website.
2. Post the award’s logo on your blog.
3. Answer the ten questions you have been asked.
4. Nominate ten other bloggers and ask them ten other questions.
1. What is your ultimate ship, your #1 “this is my OTP!”-level ship? Gansey and Glendower. Really, I don’t ship.
2. If you could change the ending to any one book, what would it be and why? Where the Red Fern Grows, for obvious reasons.
3. Is there a book that everyone hates and you love? I gave No One Else Can Have You 5 stars when I read it, though the difference now from then is probably much larger. Gorgeous by Paul Rudnick and The Butterfly Sister by Amy Gail Hansen are my next two biggest differences between a book I thought was 5 stars and the average Goodreads rating.
4. Which book does the blogosphere go crazy for and you just don’t understand? I don’t know that anyone went crazy for it, but Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens. That anyone is continuing to talk about this book boggles my mind.
5. What is the worst book you have ever read? THE WORST. Why? Worst quality?
I’ve read a lot of bad books. Anything that might qualify for “THE WORST” I DNFed and wouldn’t count towards this, so probably a three way tie between Blaze by Laurie Boyle Crompton, Vivian Divine is Dead by Lauren Sabel and Pretty Dark Nothing by Heather L. Reid. Oh, and Sway by Kat Spears. I forgot how much I hated that.
6. Your top three recommendations for someone who “doesn’t read YA.” The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, and Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta.
7. What if there was only one book-to-movie production in 2015. You get to decide which book — so which one do you pick? SLOPPY FIRSTS
8. Would you rather have a new Harry Potter series about Harry in his later years or a a Marauders-era book series? The Marauders. I would loooove more Harry Potter, but wasn’t the rest of his life supposed to be normal and boring compared to those 7 years?
9. How do you pick your next read?
I have a master TBR list, but since I got rid of my reading schedule, I try to read books near their release dates, but let myself read anything I want. I read an April 2015 book a few weeks ago! (99 Days by Katie Cotugno and I loved it!)
10. What book have you owned the longest that is still unread on your shelf? Either Wild Ducks Flying Backwards by Tom Robbins or 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez – I don’t remember which I bought first and they both have the same day as added to Goodreads – probably the day I joined in September 2008!
