One. What is your favorite thing about reading?
Escaping to different worlds and living multiple lives. The one thing that KINDA sucks about life is we REALLY don’t get enough time to do everything we want … or the opportunities! For instance, I would LOVE to explore space … but I don’t think that’s happening in my lifetime. But I can read about it! Or I can be a knight in a magical kingdom … or I can just be a teenager again living life. What a beautiful kind of magic books are.
Two. Which male character is your favorite?
… I have a lot but I’m going with two because choosing one isn’t enough! Ponyboy Curtis from The Outsider … I love his sensitive nature, always seeing the beauty in life and trying his best. His love for the simple beauties like poetry and sunsets is SUPER relatable, and I love it. Henry “Monty” Montague from The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue … he’s not your stereotypical hero, getting scared in the heat of the moment and not necessarily having these epic fighting skills. But even when he’s terrified, he still faces things head on. And he’s so funny and adorable!
Three. Which female character is your favorite?
Like I can choose only ONE. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter … she’s so quirky and adorable, always being her true self no matter what. Inej Ghafa from Six of Crows … she’s strong, independent and still manages to look on the more optimistic side even when she’s been through so much.
Four. Who is your favorite villain of all time?
I’m trying to stick with books I’ve read and I haven’t read many Batman comics, so I won’t go with the Joker. But Dorian Gray’s vanity in The Picture of Dorian Gray is just … like the masterpiece of villains! Typically, it’s this person who’s super dark or has been cursed with darkness or for SOME unrelatable/unrealistic reason for them to be a villain … but the true villain being something beyond a person? Pretty epic.
Five. Who is your least favorite character of all time?
YOU DO, WOMAN! Man, I feel like I choose the same person every time I’m asked this but probably Dolores Umbridge. She’s vile, cruel and abuses those around her for power.
Six. Which book do you think has the strongest plot?
Hmmm … tough one. I think it has to be a tie between J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series and Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy. They’re so intricate, detailed and legendary in the book world.
Seven. What gets on your nerves the most in a story (a boring character, an unrealistic plot, etc.)?
Probably an inconsistent or boring character. I’m a VERY character oriented reader, so if the characters are bothersome then I’m MOST likely not going to continue reading it. I also can’t really stand love triangles in books … I find them really annoying and rather pointless.
Eight. Which book has the best cover (share a picture!)?
These books were okay for me, but have you SEEN these covers??
Nine. Do you let people borrow your books? If so, are you specific about how they treat them?
… yes … technically. But ONLY a select few who I trust. My friend Brittney is a BIG book lover such as myself, so she takes care of them. I also let my mom and dad borrow books since I know they will take care of them … and I love seeing how much they enjoy books I never thought they would! Basically, I was them to treat it nicely. No folding corners, keep it in a baggy when they carry them out and about, no eating with them … okay, I have a FEW rules. BUT I’VE BEEN BETRAYED IN THE PAST!!
Ten. If a movie could be made based on any book, which book would you choose?
I PROOOOOOOOOOOOBABLY would have to choose Kelley Armstrong’s The Darkest Powers trilogy. However, it would HAVE to be a trilogy OR a TV series.
Eleven. Which author has inspired you most?
Hmmm … these is a tough question, since multiple authors have inspired me for different reasons. J.K. Rowling has simply because of how successful her novels have been and continue to be. Angie Thomas’ brilliance with representing the black community is both beautiful and courageous, especially when the black lives matter movement needed more voices. And lastly, I think I’d have to say Mackenzi Lee since her novels bring representation to a whole new level … and she isn’t afraid to write about it.
Twelve. What single book would you be unable to live without?
I would say the Harry Potter books but I would want them all, not just one. Ugh … I have two on my mind and I can’t choose … okay, okay. I’m going to go with Mackenzi Lee’s The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. I absolutely love this story … I re-read it A LOT! And I wouldn’t need the sequels since the story ends well on its own!
