I was tagged by: Laura @ Reading in the Mountains

Here are her questions and my answers:
1.      Do you prefer to read e-books or paper books? Why?
-          Starting off with a hard one are we? Lol well I like both, but for different reasons for each. I LOVE my Nook because its so much lighter to carry around. I also can carry it around without people knowing that I’m reading a YA book lol I also love how fast I can get the title I want. When you buy it, you’re able to get the instantaneous download. But, nothing beats the actual physical hard copy of the book being on your shelf. They look so pretty and it makes your shelf look so much fuller.

2.      Which book would you want to live in? Why?
-          This is way easier… I’m gonna try and stay away from the textbook answers like Twilight and Harry Potter and say the Percy Jackson series. If you haven’t read it yet, you should definitely start. With all the gods and goddess in it, I’m sure to always be involved in action…. Or mischief at least dealing with Percy. Plus, Camp Half Blood seems like an AWESOME place to stay in.

3.      If you were stuck on a deserted island and could only have five books, which ones would they be?
-          First would be Beauty Queens, second Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, third (now that I’ve finally read it) The Hunger Games, fourth The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, and fifth If I Stay. For a good round bunch of books, all which are 5 stars in my eyes.
4.      If you could meet 1 author, who would it be?
-          Easy peasy… J.K. Rowling. I would love to sit and talk about where all her ideas for Harry came from. Just to see her wonderful imagination at work.

5.      Which published book do you wish you had written?
-          At this very moment, The Hunger Games. With the movie coming out and everything, the press is all over it. And this book even got my boyfriend (who dare I say it, HATES reading) reading along with me at night.

6.      If you could date any book character, who would it be and why?
-That would have to be Will from Firelight! He’s just amazing and sweet and… well just look at my Book Boyfriend post here to see how I view him and you’ll understand lol  

7.      If you could be best friends with any book character, who would it be and why?
-I would have to say Katniss. She is so kick a*s and I know I can always count on her survival skills.

8.      If you could give any book character advice, who would it be and what would you tell him/her?
-          Well, many of you will laugh at this, but I’m so dead serious lol I would tell Tessa from the Infernal Devices series “Choose Team Will!” and I would Katniss “Choose Team Peeta!” and I would tell Bella “Go back in time and choose Team Jacob!!!!” lmao

9.      Do you have reading/reviewing goals for this year?
-Yes. Now that I am working evening and am free during the day, I can do the ABC challenge and the read my 75 books for this year. I am also going to start doing giveaways and the Random Acts of Kindness thing now that I am working.

10. What is your favorite genre to read?
- Until recently, it was Paranormal Romance, but then I was sucked out of my comfort zone by my Bff and told to read The Hunger Games and now all I want to read is some more adventure, post apocalyptic, dystopian type stuff.

 11.  What new books are you looking forward to?

             - The new adult book by J.K. Rowling. I’m a little upset that it isn’t another MG or YA book, but              hey, I still love her writing and I am definitely going to give it a chance.

4. If you were able to pull someone out of a book for one day, who would it be and what would you guys do?
5. What is your favorite genre? Why?
6. How long have you been an avid reader and what made you start reading? 
7. Where do you purchase most of your books? Indie or big stores? Or do you go to the library for most of them?
