Questions from Markella (It's a Hardcover's Life): Her Blog
1) How long have you been blogging?
I'd say, probably about a year, or a little longer. I had never considered it before. 
2) Why did you start blogging?
Reading and writing are two of my favourite things in the world, and I don't know why I never considered doing it before. But then one day, I got this idea to incorporate my love for books and writing into one to give my opinion on the books I love and adore.
3) What book are you most excited about reading in the near future?
Ah gosh, so many!   ICED by Karen Marie Moning is probably my #1. The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead, Unravel me by Tahereh Mafi, Everbound by Brodi Ashton, Boundless by Cynthia Hand, Edge of Dawn by Lara Adrian. Those are the main ones I can think of off the top of my head.
4) What has been the hardest part of blogging for you?
I guess putting off reviews, and then when I get down to writing them, I have to remember what happened in each specific book. 
5) If you could live in the world of a book, what book would that be and why?
Geez. That's hard.  I'd maybe go with Fever because it has Barrons, or maybe Divergent.

6) What is your least favorite book?
Least favourite? I think.. Sweet Valley Confidential. I have never, in my life read such a horrible and character assignation book. I grew up with her books. They were everything to me when I was a teenager. And I was excited to read this... but it changed and re-wrote history, and that.. I could not take.
7) Girl/ Boy in a book you wish was real? Why?
Can it be more than one? Jericho Barrons from Fever series, Alex from Angel by L.A Weatherly and well. almost every male in the books I love.
8)What would you do if vampires were real? Kill them? Hide?
Kill them if they are bad. Love them if they were good. 

9) Favorite place to read?
My bedroom. 

10) Got any cool ARCs?
Not recently. I don't tend to get many ARC's.. only via netgalley, if that counts.
