3 Things About Me:

  1. My twin and I often give each other book recommendations, and if she says read a book…I go ahead and read it!
  2. My dream place to read is on a not too chilly, not too warm, day in the middle of a prairie, surrounded by grass, with puffy white clouds and a pine forest on the edge of the praire, on a picnic blanket with lots of pillows!
  3. I once bought 40 metres of clear contact to cover all my books.

Award Questions & Answers:

  1. If you were to live in any fictional world, which one would you choose?
    • David Eddings’ The Belgariad series. His world building is AMAZING! This is a really old series but it reads like a modern one.
  2. If you could bring one fictional character to life, who would it be?
    • Probably Hale from Ally Carter’s Heist Society series. Soooo swoon-worthy! Ally Carter always writes excellent novels, and the best book-boyfriends!
  3. Here’s an overrated, cliché question: What book would you bring if you were stranded on an island?
    • Tough! Hmmm… Probably Loiusa May Alcott’s Little Women. Jo is such a rebel, and the book is kind and generally teaches you a lot about family and love.
  4. A book that you didn’t expect would make you cry?
    • I generally stay away from novels that I know would make me cry, and it’s been a really long time since I’ve read a novel that has made me cry. Probably Avery by Charlotte McConaghy. A BEAUTIFUL novel, I would highly recommend it to anybody who loves a good romance novel with EXCEPTIONAL world-building. And it’s by an Aussie author!
  5. Random: One sort of food you wouldn’t mind eating for the rest of your life?
    • Healthy food! I recently realised just how…uncomfortable…eating junk food every day can make you.

  3. If you were an author, what would you write and why?
