Questionnaire Tag – Interview!

Interview - Bannerimage from We Heart It

Today is interview day! Me, Vy, and Willa all come up with three questions each to ask each other, and we’ll be answering all of them! There are questions related to books/reading, and some that aren’t! Enjoy, and don’t forget to answer these questions yourself!

What do you want to be when you’re older? Is this related to blogging/reading? If not, why not?

At the moment, I’m actually thinking about going into business, like an accountant or something. I’m good at numbers, so I guess that’s why. The only way that I can imagine it’s related to blogging is the organization factor. I don’t want to go into the publishing industry when I’m older because I like blogging for fun. It would turn into a job, you know?

Do you set aside a specific time each day to read, or do you read whenever you can (in cars, before school starts, etc.)?

Throughout the entire year, I set aside time to read at night right after I shower (which is right before I go to bed). There’s something about going to sleep happy that just makes falling asleep easier.

But during the school year, I usually read ebooks on bus rides to and from school. I don’t read after school until bedtime, so I need to squeeze in every possible minute!

 Are you a snacker while reading? If yes, what’s your choice of food? If no, why not?

I actually can’t snack while I read! I’ve tried before and I’ve found it to be impossibly difficult to focus. It’s especially annoying when I’m reading a physical book and I have to hold the book open with one hand and eat with the other. AND CRUMBS UGH. If I did eat snacks while reading, it would probably be fruit snacks. Fruit snacks = clean.

Who is a character you’ve been able to relate to you that you’ve read about? (Male or female!) Why? And who is one you would like to be like?

Gigi from Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer! I loved this book to death particularly because Gigi IS ME. She’s a hard worker and at the time, I was also taking Chemistry and could totally relate to her struggle. She and her group of friends in general are academical and I just understood them like no other. One character I would like to be like is Todd from The Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness. He’s so freaking brave and I just. I’M A WIMP, OKAY??

What is your favorite blogging memory that you’ve had? What’s one your looking forward to?

My favorite blogging memory was meeting Vy at Cat Winters’ In the Shadow of Blackbirds book signing! It was my first and only (so far) bloggy meetup/author signing, and it was awesome.

I’M SUPER SUPER looking forward to ALA 2015 (the year I graduate high school) because I plan on meeting Vy and Willa and possibly other bloggers there. I’m not sure my parents will let me roadtrip down there, but it WILL happen. I’ll run away from home for a week if I have to. 😉

What kind of music do you like to listen to?

I don’t consider myself a mainstream music listener, but I do like it sometimes because at dance we listen to it. But at home, I love listening to covers of songs, mostly by Boyce Avenue (duh). I also love Alex Goot, Tyler Ward, and Kina Grannis. I cannot for the life of me read WHILE listening to music with lyrics though. Only if it’s classical.

 What book have you not read that you feel as if everyone else has read? Why haven’t you read it yet?

This summer I’ve been pretty good about reading hyped up books (City of Bones, John Green, The 5th Wave)! But there are a couple that I just have not picked up, like Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Legend, Cinder, and Code Name Verity are just a few. I’m just terrified that they won’t live up!

 Are you a TV or movie person? (I want this to be open so you can answer it in any direction you want)

Okay, don’t kill me, but NEITHER. I’m not a big fan of watching TV shows OR watching movies. I don’t feel productive when I do either. But if I really had to pick, probably movies because TV shows can be so addicting and it would be wasting my time. 😛 But if you ask me if I’ve seen/heard of ___ movie, chances are, I’d be like, “Wut.” So, I’m a book person. THERE.

 You are given an all expense paid trip to a destination of your choice for ONE day. Where would you go and what would you do?

LONDON ALL THE WAY. It is my dream to go to England. I feel like deep down, I’m British (I speak in a British accent all the time, my dream guy has to be British, I love British Youtubers/Bloggers, you get the idea). I want to visit The Big Ben of course, but also Platform 9 3/4, etc. I would of course go to Boots and Primark since I’m a fashion kind of gal, too. Meredith from Mere Mai recently went there and I’m drooling at all of her pictures!

So that’s it! I hope y’all had fun reading my answers, but now I’d like to know what YOUR answers are! Don’t forget to check out Vy’s Blog and Willa’s Ramblings!

Questionnaire Tag – Bookshelf Tour!

Bookshelf Tour - Bannerimage from We Heart It

Welcome to our first official question! The banner is quite self-explanatory: we’re sharing our bookshelves today! EXCITING.

I’m sure I have the most pitiful bookshelf in the history of book blogger bookshelves. I literally have books & bookshelves scattered all over my house, and ONE shelf in my room that is stationary, so that’s the one shelf that I’ll show you.

My Bookshelf

I have one of those 2 x 4 cubic shelves from Ikea. And yes, that is the only cube that holds my books. The rest are filled with.. stuff. BORING STUFF. I know, sad.

am more of an ebook reader/buyer, so Willa suggested I do a Kindle Bookshelf tour. GENIUS. This does not include my e-ARC books (since they don’t have covers).

Kindle Bookshelf A-D

Kindle Bookshelf E-K

Kindle Bookshelf M-T

Kindle Bookshelf W-W

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*fist pump for ereaders* As you can tell, I CLEARLY have more books on my Kindle than on my physical bookshelf. And the majority of them…. are unread.

What do your bookshelves look like? Much prettier than mine, I’m assuming? SHOW ME. Don’t forget to check out Vy’s Blog and Willa’s Ramblings for their bookshelves!

Questionnaire Tag – Intro

Questionnaire Tag - Banner

What is this Questionnaire Tag you speak of?

Once upon a time (aka a few weeks ago), Vy from Vy’s Blog came up with this IDEA that she wanted some bloggy friends to be involved in. In came Willa from Willa’s Ramblings and me! We slowly started collaborating this event into what has become…

A Questionnaire Tag! In this week-long event, we’ll be answering questions: bookish questions to more personal questions, all on our own blogs! We decided to do this because we’re all close bloggy buddies, and we simply wanted to get to know each other better.

Where do you come in?

Well, it’s a tag, so that means, YOU’RE IT! I tag each and every one of you to answer these questions as well, and who knows, maybe we’ll all make some friends! I want to hear all of your answers. This is part of why I love the blogging community so much: we’re all friendly and meeting knew book-loving people is just awesome.

So what are you waiting for? Tune in tomorrow, Thursday, and Saturday to see what’s up on our blogs and answer the questions along with us!
