1. Which book made you ugly cry for days?
I’m not usually one to cry over a book, in fact I have only ever actually cried REAL tears over The Last Star by Rick Yancey. The ending just really got to me, IDK man. I read that probably a year ago, and haven’t had anything as emotional since.
2. Which book/series do you have very fond memories of?
Hmmm… I have fond memories of a lot of books, but most recently it would have to be Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia. I read it all on a six hour (total, round-trip) drive to and from a really cool outlet mall, which was really fun. But also because that book was truly and utterly amazing and relatable! ( I wrote a review!!)
3. Which character do you find very similar to yourself?
Easily Annabeth Chase from Percy Jackson. She’s smart and loves reading and architecture, as do I. She wants to become an architect, and she had the opportunity to redesign Olympus, which would be totally awesome!!
4. Which villain do you resemble most (in terms of personality)?
Haha so I have literally no clue, so I took some quizzes, and one said Voldemort (nah) and another said the White Witch from Narnia, and I could go with that. I like the cold, having power over the entire world, always evil, having really great snacks.
5. Which villain would you be besties with?
I am currently reading Because You Love to Hate Me by Ameriie, and it’s allll about villains. My favorite short story so far has been “Shirley and Jim” by Susan Dennard. I would want to be best friends with Shirley because she’s a nerd and is in calculus! Her and Jim play chess and talk about books, which is amazing!!
6. Name a strange habit you do while reading.
Hmmm…. I can’t read unless it’s nearly silent, and there’s nothing else going on around me. I can’t think of anything that’s interesting… Sometimes I end up sitting in weird, rather uncomfortable positions, but I don’t notice because I’m lost in the book!
7. Do you sleep with socks?
UG, NO!! I hate sleeping with socks on! It’s just not very comfortable, and I don’t really care about my feet getting cold.
8. How many pages can you read in one hour?
I mean, it kinda depends on the book and the size of the font, the size of the page, the genre, (I tend to read cotemporaries faster than fantasy), and how much I like the book. But all that considered, maybe anywhere between 60 and a hundred pages? I have never actually paid attention!
9. Which book would you rewrite the ending to? And what would it be?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Marissa Meyer’s books, but Heartless was a bit of a let-down. The majority of it was really great, but the ending fell short for me. It was SOO abrupt. I would have liked something more gradual, where you can see more and more hints along the way, instead of just a huge sudden change. The actual content of the ending is basically inevitable, but I would have liked it to be a little more gradual.
10. What is the longest amount of pages you’ve read in one sitting?
I don’t tend to read a lot of pages in one sitting, as I just don’t have time for that anymore. But I used to be able to crank out four or five hundred pages at one time if I was really enjoying the book and didn’t have other obligations.
I’m not going to tag anyone specific, since I wasn’t officially tagged. So, if you would like to do this one, go for it! Just link me back to your answers!
I’m also just going to reuse May’s questions because I really liked them, and am curious to see how others would answer them!
