11 questions from Andy:

Which book have you re-read the most often?

I hardly ever re-read books, but I think I’ve probably read Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume at least ten or fifteen times in my life. It was one of my favorite books as a child and I still loved it so much when I re-read it a couple years ago.

What was the first book you ever fell in love with?

Hmm, good question. I’m not sure what the very first book I fell in love with was, but I remember being head over heels for Trickster’s Choice by Tamora Pierce when I was younger. I thought that was the coolest book ever.

Which book do you think is either extremely underrated or overrated?

Extremely underrated: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray. This book is amazing. It satirizes so many things, it’s hilarious and important and I loved it so much. I’m not sure why so many people hated it.

Extremely overrated: The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. I had to read this in a Russian lit class in college and I hated it so much. It’s basically the bane of my existence. I’m not sure if it was the book or the terrible professor or just the fact that I was forced to read it, but I couldn’t stand it.

What’s your favorite book quote?

I’m not sure that I could possibly answer this question with just one quote, so I’ll direct you to all of the quotes I’ve shared in the 3 Days, 3 Quotes tag!

If you could meet any author (living or dead), who would it be and why?

This is another difficult question! I think I’d most like to meet Jenn Bennett just because she seems so nice and I love her books so much.

What book are you looking forward to reading most next year?

Well, given my answer to the last question, you probably won’t be surprised to hear that my most anticipated book for 2019 is written by Jenn Bennett! I can’t wait to read Serious Moonlight.

If your life had a book title, what would it be?

I am always embarrassing myself and doing things that make future me cringe, so something like Jenny Lawson’s memoir (Let’s Pretend This Never Happened) would be pretty accurate.

Which book has left the strongest impression on you?

I really have no idea! I guess you could say that any book I’ve rated five stars has left an impression on me. I think I’ve read too many books to choose just one.

Which fictional character do you identify with the most?

Tangled Like Us isn’t out yet, but it’s main character, Jane Cobalt, is a minor character in several of Krista & Becca Ritchie’s other books. I relate to Jane so much since I’m also a crazy cat lady who likes to read.

Which book is next on your to-do-list?

This is always a question for me. I think I’ll go with My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows.

What are your reading goals for 2019?

I’m actually doing a post about this tomorrow! I won’t spoil it, but I will say that in addition to the five goals I’m sharing tomorrow, I’m hoping for more bookish interactions on my blog in 2019. I already have a couple buddy reads planned (and maybe a collaboration and/or guest post) but if you would be interested in doing something, please let me know!


I am not feeling very creative today, so I’m not going to tag anyone or come up with any new questions. But if you haven’t been nominated for this award before (or even if you have) and you feel like answering some questions, please consider yourself nominated! (And don’t forget to link back to this post so I can see your answers.)

    Libba Bray is awesome! I loved Going Bovine when I was in high school and will have to check out Beauty Queens. And if you ever want to do a collab post, I’ve never done one but would be happy to try it! 🙂

      I hope you like Beauty Queens! And that would be great! I don’t know quite what I want to do for a collab post yet, but I’m going to add you to my list for when I figure it out! (And, of course, if you have any ideas, please let me know.) 🙂
