  2. I am a carb loader. I love anything potatoes and bread.

  5. Instead I am working on a career in my second love, nature. I will be a Park Ranger for the California State Parks.

Mishi’s Questions.

What is your favorite book that has been released this year?

I haven’t read it yet, heck I don’t even own it yet; but I am going with Winter by Marissa Meyer. I have been waiting for this patiently (haha that’s not true) for forever!

What is your least favorite book that has been released this year?

Armada by Ernest Cline. Unfortunately I didn’t even finish it.

What time period would you like to live in?

Hmmm. That’s hard to say, because I am enjoying this time period. I love reading about other time periods, but honestly I don’t know that I would choose to live in any of them, women just didn’t have enough rights for me. I might say I would go into the future…to see what it would be like; hopefully a smorgasbord of equality!

What is your favorite season?

Spring, followed closely by the first half of Summer.

Do you prefer Ebooks or physical books?

100% physical

If you were a matchmaker, what two characters from different books would you pair?

I have no freaking clue, haha. I have never thought about it, plus I don’t really have time to think about it this morning…so I will go with my crossover ship from TV Buffy Summer/Dean Winchester.

Who is your favorite author?

I guess it depends on the genre, I have many favorites. But I will say J.K. Rowling/Robert Galbraith, because so far I love all of her books, including her more adult targeted ones.

What classic book do you like?

I like a lot of them but I will go with Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. It is my favorite, plus I read it over and over.

If you had to choose a dystopian society to live in, which one will it be?

Oh, lord! They aren’t usually very comforting times to live. I will say I would live in Stephanie Meyers dystopian in The Host. The aliens are not violent, and if you manage to not get possessed by them you could live in a pretty cool underground society.

What television show are you currently watching?

Once Upon A Time. I am addicted.

Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging so I could get free books to review, and now I have grown to love it!

That is all. Thank you again Mishi!
