Which book do you irrationally cringe away from reading, despite seeing only positive reviews? Honestly?
Hm… I don’t know… I don’t like anything non-fiction. I’d have to say…
Is there a book I won’t read?

If you could bring three characters to life for a social event (afternoon tea, a night of clubbing, perhaps a world cruise), who would they be and what would the event be?
Easy peasy. Enna (Shannon Hale’s Enna Burning)… okay. Maybe this isn’t so easy.
But we’d go… and do…

I’m bad at this.

(Borrowing shamelessly from the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde): you are told you can’t die until you read the most boring novel on the planet. While this immortality is great for awhile, eventually you realise it’s past time to die. Which book would you expect to get you a nice grave?
Criss Cross. I know it won the newbery but YAWN.

Come on, we’ve all been there. Which book have you pretended, or at least hinted, that you’ve read, when in fact you’ve been nowhere near it?
Stargirl is the first one that comes to mind. Everyone seems to have read it… except me.

As an addition to the last question, has there been a book that you really thought you had read, only to realise when you read a review about it/go to ‘reread’ it that you haven’t? Which book?

You’re interviewing for the post of Official Book Advisor to some VIP (who’s not a big reader). What’s the first book you’d recommend and why? (If you feel like you’d have to know the person, go ahead and personalise the VIP.)
It depends on who it was. My first choice would be B1000 by Shannon Hale, but not everyone would be right for it.

A good fairy comes and grants you one wish: you will have perfect reading comprehension in the foreign language of your choice. Which language do you go with?
FRENCH! J’adore francais! Ah!

A mischievious fairy comes and says that you must choose one book that you will reread once a year for the rest of your life (you can read other books as well). Which book would you pick?
Enna Burning. It’s my favorite for a re-read.

I know that the book blogging community, and its various challenges, have pushed my reading borders. What’s one bookish thing you ‘discovered’ from book blogging (maybe a new genre, or author, or new appreciation for cover art—anything)?
I learned that summarization is not as easy as it seems. And it’s a bad idea to blog on a bad day. Very very bad.

That good fairy is back for one final visit. Now, she’s granting you your dream library! Describe it. Is everything leatherbound? Is it full of first edition hardcovers? Pristine trade paperbacks? Perhaps a few favourite authors have inscribed their works? Go ahead—let your imagination run free.
Linen covers, of all colors. With ribbon bookmarks attached. Warm wooden bookcases and a computer in the corner. All books signed, with personal messages (because I am very close friends with every author). A massage chair, a giant bean-bag, a comfortable arm chair with a foot rest, and finally a big warm bed, for those books that you just want to snuggle up with.


I tag: Cuileann, Taiger, Anidori-Isilee, and Maribeth-Kayla


  1. I loved Stargirl!

    Yeah, B1000 would not be good for some people. Like the people who only read nonfiction.

    FRENCH?! WHY Would you waste your wish on FRENCH? Honestly. I would probably say CHINESE or something that's actually USEFUL. (:P)

    When you build that library, can I come visit?

  2. My reponse:

    Totally agree with you about Cross Cross. Nothing happened.
