Questions for Award

1. A book you started but never finished…but want to finish. What stopped you from continuing to read it?

5. Is it fair to judge a book by its film?
6. What book did you badly judge by its cover and ended up loving?
7. Which book character have you felt the most kin with and able to relate with?

My Extra Question for You:

How many books do you own? Ebook, paperback, and/or hardcover?

Answers

 A BOOK YOU STARTED BUT NEVER FINISHED…BUT WANT TO FINISH. WHAT STOPPED YOU FROM READING IT?

The Selection series by Kiera Cass. I STILL haven’t finished The One. I keep getting distracted by other books…

WHAT ELEMENTS ATTRACT YOU TO A BOOK, WHICH MAKES YOU READ IT?

I’m not really sure, it is sounds interesting, if it seems like it has tropes I like or something I haven’t seen much of I’ll usually give it a shot. I like realistic in science in books, or at least plausible sounding science.

WHICH BOOKS DO YOU PREFER E-COPY OR HARD COPY?

E-books are easier for me to read (and to sneak read in class), but I prefer to own hardcopies.

What book are you currently reading or going to read next?

At the time that I am writing this, I am reading Patient H.M. by Luke Dittrich. Its an arc from NetGalley, and its super interesting so far. Its a none fiction book about the man who is essentially the most famous neuroscience patient in history, as told by the grandson of the doctor who lobotomized him.

IS IT FAIR TO JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS FILM?

No, never really. End of discussion.

WHAT BOOK DID YOU JUDGE BADLY BY ITS COVER AND ENDED UP LOVING?

Pretty much every contemporary I’ve ever rated above 4 stars, which is more than I am willing to list right now.

WHICH BOOK CHARACTER HAVE YOU FELT THE MOST KIN WITH AND ABLE TO RELATE WITH?

Hermoine, and other bookish characters like her. Because in that situation, that is almost certainly how I would act.

Extra Question from Icebreaker: How do you pick a certain book to read? What goes through your head?

I’m not even sure, its mostly “this looks good, I’ll read this one now” and thats it…

 

50 Word Story: (But why are you making me do this????- FYI This is going to be terrible…)

In another life, she’d have been the golden child truly, not this one of tarnished bronze the universe looked at in the wrong lighting. In another life, she would have a steadier head on her shoulders, and wouldn’t have been some weird orphan. In another life, she wouldn’t destroy everything in her wake…

(This is an excerpt from Legacy of Stardust, because I couldn’t make a 50 word story for the life of me…)

  1. Thanks so much for yet another nomination! I’m running behind on tags and awards, but I promise to get to this as soon as possible. 🙂 I loved the first three novels in The Selection series, but I must admit that The Heir and The Crown weren’t as satisfying as its predecessors. I just felt as though America and Maxon were so sweet, and Eadlyn and her suitors simply didn’t live up to that. I hope you finish The One soon, though! xx
