Questions I was Asked
1. What books might you include on a list of your top 5 favorites?
Off the top of my head I’d list Pride & Prejudice, Game of Thrones, Voyager (Outlander #3), Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince, and The Bronze Horseman Trilogy. Yes, I do realize a trilogy is three books, but…
2. If you could live in a book, which would it be and why?
If I could live in a book, I would attend Hogwarts. Answer should be self-explanatory. LOL!
3. Favorite genre to read?
My favorite genre changes every few years, or so, but my current favorite genre is Young Adult. Namely Paranormal YA.
4. How many books are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading (as I type) only 1 book. I usually prefer to only read one book at a time. However, I will read two if they are from vastly different genres. Most of this summer I have read either YA, historical, or contemporary fiction during the day and romance at night. Yet, ideally I like to read one book at a time, because when I read more than one, there will always be one that grabs my attention faster, and I’ll end up reading only that one until I finish it. By then, my interest in the other book may have waned a bit.
5. Name 2 books you mean to read but keep putting off.
The Martian by Andy Weir and Red Rising by Pierce Brown.
6. If you taught a literature class, what would be on your syllabus for the class?
I do actually teach a literature class as I’m a 5th grade teacher. Last year I taught C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, Eric Pierpoint’s The Last Ride of Caleb O’Tool, Mary Norton’s The Borrowers, and Pam Muñoz Ryan’s Esperanza Rising.
7. Do you prefer paperback, hardcover, or ebooks?
In my heart of hearts I prefer hardcover books, however they’re not really practical. They’re too big to fit in my purse, and when they do, they’re too heavy. I tend to buy paperbacks more often, because they’re cheaper. However, I usually buy ebooks as you can carry thousands of books on your kindle, they’re easier to pack when traveling, and as I age I find I often need to enlarge the font.
8. What’s the most memorable bookstore you’ve visited?
The Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles. Hands down!
9. Favorite place to read?
10. If you’re not reading, what do you like to do?
I like to watch tv/movies, hang out with family & friends, and do something active outside. It’s just too beautiful here in California to not take advantage of it.
