Question: Have you ever bought a book because of a bad review?

I have to admit that I’ve never bought a book because of a bad review before. I did buy a book despite of a bad review a couple of times. For instance, even though I heard a lot of bad things about Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and Fallen by Lauren Kate, I did end up buying both books to see for myself. So maybe I did end up buying them because of bad reviews. I was, in any case, curious to find out if they were really as bad as some people thought they were.

What about you?

Question: Describe where you love to read most…

Surprisingly enough, that’s an easy one for me. On the train. No seriously. I love reading on the train. I spent about four hours a week going from university to my home and vice versa with the train. Additionally, I also love reading in my bed. Especially when we’re talking scary horror/thriller novels. Brrr!

So, where do you like to read most?

Question: What characteristics do your favorite books share?

This is actually a very tough question. I read a variety of genres and enjoy a variety of books. I love kick-ass heroines, I love mysterious paranormal boyfriends (think Damon from The Vampire Diaries…yummy!), but I also love heroines who aren’t over-powered and are struggling against the forces of darkness. There’s nothing that really defines my favorite books, I guess. They’re all quite different. I love the Harry Potter books, I’m a great fan of In The Forests of The Night, but I also love reading Mists of Avalon, and there are no characteristics in common whatsoever in those books. One thing though that I love in all books, although admittingly not in all books it’s equally well-executed, is the love triangle. I know a lot of people are tired of those, but they just draw me in.

Question: What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done for a book?

 

What a fun question! I must admit that aside from nagging for my Mom to drive me to the midnight release of one of the Harry Potter books (now the craziness is over, I can’t even recall which one), which was a three hour drive, I haven’t done a lot of absolutely crazy things for books yet. My Mom is a saint really, for putting up with me even as I got it in my mind that I needed to go to the release of Harry Potter in the dead of night. I remember staying up the whole night to read the book as well. Great times!
