1) What do you look for the most when you pick up a book? A) a beautiful writing style, B) a character driven story, or C) a plot driven story
They're all important in different ways, but I love a character driven story.
2) What are your pet peeves in books?
Love triangles, love triangles, love triangles. And instalove. And cliffhangers...
3) If you could print one quote on your wall, which one would it be?
"Not all those who wander are lost" by Tolkien
4) Which genre would you like to explore more?
Maybe mysteries? I mean, I read a lot of psychological thrillers, but I really like the twistiness and real world setting of a good mystery. Which is funny, since I've always loved fantasy for it's otherworldliness. Oh, and I know! Urban fantasy. I feel like I need to read more of that.
5) Was there ever a movie adaptation you liked more than the book?
Possibly Insurgent. Unlike a lot of people I actually thought that was a pretty good movie.
6) If one of your favorite books would be adapted or get a new adaptation, which book would it be and what role would you like to play?
Wow tough one. I'd love to see a proper adaptation of A Dance with Dragons, the fifth ASoIaF book, which the show (to a large extent) doesn't have time to delve into. Who I would play though- no idea. The Blue is another book I wouldn't mind seeing a good version of.
7) A hyped book you wouldn't recommend at all?
I wasn't into River of Teeth at all.
8) A book that highly influenced your life and way of thinking?
Probably A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs or Planet of Exile by Ursula K. LeGuin. Both had a lot to do with kickstarting my love of fantasy/ SF.
9) Are you a fan of rereading books? Do you do it often?
I do like to re- read! I don't nearly as much now that I blog, but there's nothing quite like revisiting an old bookish friend.
10) Which book title could easily be the title of your life?
11) Which book should be required reading for everyone?
Oh this is impossible to say? I'll just show off a few favorites (these will be no surprise to long time readers).
12) Who do you tag?
I'm tagging JJ at This Dark Material, Suzanne at The Bookish Libra, and Litha at Victorian Soul Critiques.
