Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

Thank you to Haraiah over at Random Things in Action for nominating me to the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.
Here are the rules:
Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
Put the award logo on your blog.
Answer the ten questions sent to you.
Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
Nominate ten blogs.

What book did you not expect to love but did?
I usually don't read books that I don't think I'll at least like, which is why I'm disappointed more times than I'm happily surprised. But if I have to pick one, it'll have to be All Lined Up, the first book in Rusk University by Cora Carmack. I didn't originally plan to read it, but I read a Review that said you'd like it even if you normally didn't read NA, and, well, she was right! I really loved All Lined Up.

Are you a fast reader or a slow reader? How many books do usually you read in a month?
I'm definitely a fast reader (might be because once I start a good book, I can't really put it down and have to finish it). How many books I read in a month depends on a lot of things. In the summer, I can read over ten books in a month, but when I have school it can be less, about eight books.

What is your favorite quote at the moment?
I have a lot of quotes that I really love, but if I have to pick one ... Well, I'll pick two quotes, because they're both equally awesome. The first quote is by Carl Sagan.

"A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic."
Because I agree. It's just so perfect. The second favorite quote at the moment is one by John Gardner.

" We read five words on the first page of a really good novel and we begin to forget that we are reading printed words on a page; we begin to see images."
Because it is true. When we read (at least, when I read), I don't really think that I am reading printed words, but I see the people in the book, I see what they are doing, I see their surroundings. It is the most awesome experience in the world.

What are you currently reading?
At the moment, I am Reading a few books, actually. I'm Reading Unearthly by Cynthia Hand, Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins and Royal Wedding by Meg Cabot.

 

Your top 3 books so far this year?
That is a really hard question, I could make an endless list of favorite books so far this year, but if I have to pick Three, it will have to be Nowhere but Here by Katie McGarry, The Ruby Circle by Richelle Mead and Cinder by Marissa Meyer.




What is the status of your bookshelf?
Right now, it's emptier than usual, since I haven't had time to unpack all of my books yet, but it's still pretty chaotic and overflowing (not to mention all the borrowed books that are strewn all over my floor). This is no news, though. There is no such thing as too many books.

What are the books you recently added on your shelf?
The newest additions to my physical bookshelf is The Sweet Trilogy, The Selection and Royal Wedding. The newest additions to my TBR are the Dispossessed series.




Are you the kind of reader who sticks to your TBR?
I don't read the books on my TBR in the order I added them, if that's what you mean. I'm the type of reader who reads what I want to read at the moment. I try to get through the books on my TBR, but it takes time, and I don't read them in order. I also try read the books that sound the best first.

What is your favorite food? Anything you are craving right now?
My favorite food is lasagna, and no, I'm not craving anything right now. I just ate dinner.

Name one book you badly want to read but find intimidating.
I find most NA and Adult books a little intimidating, but not that much, but if I have to pick one, I Think it will have to be The Hypnotist by Lars Kepler. It sounds like a good book, but the one who recommended it to me said it was really scary.


The questions I'll pass along:
1. What is your favorite book to movie/ Which book to movie are you looking forward to the most?
2. Which book that you have read so far this year have the best cover (pretty, cool, simply beautiful ...)?
3. Name one book that makes you really nostalgic and why.
4. Which book is the first one you remember Reading and how old were you when you first read it?
5. Why did you start blogging?
6. Name three books that you thought you'd love but ended up hating.
7. What is the most important thing in a book, do you think (the characters, the plot, the writing style, etc.)?
8. What makes you interested in reading a book (the cover, someone recommended it, the synopsis, etc.)?
9. What are your top 3 authors of all time?
10. What are your top 3 books (or series) of all time?
