I guess it's my turn - 10 questions!

Original post is here. :)


What is your favorite childhood book?

Hmm. The Arabian Nights. I remember staying inside to read it while my brothers were playing outside. First time I remember a book becoming a priority over playing.


E-books or printed books?

Printed. I use ebooks but printed is my preference.


What is your favorite place to read?

Recliner.  I don't have one right now. But it's perfect. Preferably facing a window


Is there any genre you would never read?

Paranormal. Just not my thing.


What is your review rating system?


  • 5 Stars - This book is amazing. Drop what you're doing and read it! I said read it! Why haven't you read it yet?!

4 Stars- Solid read but missing that "it" factor that would push it to into the realm of pure amazingness.

  • 3 Stars - It's my good for right now book. But I'm settling. I'd leave it for a better book if it came along.
  • 2 Stars - Generally speaking, the sentences are grammatically correct. Oh and the font is nice.
  • 1 Star - Must warn others.



What is your favorite fictional character?

Elizabeth Bennett.


What was the best film adaption of a book?

Pride and Prejudice- the PBS miniseries. No contest.



How do you chose the next book to read?

I have lists but I can be a moody reader. So mood over list usually.


Top 3 authors?

Jane Austen

Sharon Kay Penman

I can't chose anymore after that, it's like asking which child do you love more...


Is there any book release you are particularly looking forward to?

Illuminae, the next Brilliance book, Calamity, Morning Star to name a few.
