I originally saw this questionnaire on Jessethereader's Youtube channel, but I'm not sure where it originated.
1) What fictional character has the best style?
Lara-Jean from To All the Boys I Loved Before. She always dressed so cute and did her hair and I don’t do either of those things, so I appreciated that.
2)Your book girlfriend/boyfriend/ fictional crush?
Noah Shaw from the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. He has an accent, loads of cash, and he is so extremely sweet.
3)Ever loved a character but than started hating them?
Tris from Divergent. I honestly haven’t even finished the final book in that trilogy yet because she started to annoy me so much.
4)Biggest/Longest book on your shelf?
Duma Key by Stephen King.
5)Heaviest book on your shelf?
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski is deceptively heavy.
6)Do you have any book posters?
I actually just received a Library of Souls poster at the Ransom Riggs signing I went to a few weeks ago.
7)Do you have any book themed jewelry?
No, although I’m currently accepting Time Turner necklaces!
8)Book OTP (one true pairing)?
Romione (Ron and Hermione), fo sho.
9)Favorite book series?
This is a tough question, but probably Harry Potter (of course) or The Mortal Instruments.
10)Favorite Book-to-movie soundtrack?
Definitely The Fault in Our Stars. I had so many more feels during that movie simply because the music choices were so on point.
11)A book story you miss/ wish would continue?
Surprisingly, I don’t wish Harry Potter would continue anymore. I did for so long, but now J.K. Rowling has been releasing so much extra information and I’m just kind of over it. Either write another book or keep this information to yourself. As a reader, I want to imagine where the characters go when the book ends and I feel like Rowling is taking that away from me. Sorry. That wasn’t the question. Ummmm….I wish The Mortal Instruments series would continue. There were six books, but I still want more.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, one hundred percent.
13)Since when did you read books?
I’ve been reading and writing for as long as I can remember, but the first book that made me realize how much I loved reading was Love, Ruby Lavender by Deborah Wiles. I stayed up all night under my covers reading it.
14)Which Hogwarts house are you in?
Hufflepuff and proud.
15)Quality you look for in a book?
I think everyone wants a decent plot and compelling characters.
16)Favorite book quote
The entirety of The Book Thief is my favorite quote, but this one sentence will have to do:
“I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right.” –Markus Zusak
Markus Zusak, Jane Austen, John Green, Emily Bronte, Cassandra Clare, and a whole host of others.
18)Favorite book cover?
We All Looked Up by Tommy Wallach.
19)Action or Romance?
Action. I can’t appreciate a good romance without some action.
20)Where do you go when a sad moment happens?
I normally just stay where I am. I might cry. Maybe. It depends.
21)How long do you need to finish a book?
Honestly, I normally read a book in a day or two, but it depends on how invested I am in the story.
22)How long is your mourning period?
Several days tends to be the norm. My brain will just keep thinking about the story and it is hard for me to move on.
23)Least favourite Book?
I tried to read Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, but I just didn’t get into it. However, I did watch the movie and I really really liked it. This is the only time I’ve ever preferred a movie to a book.
24)Turn on in a character?
Being selfless and brave.
25)Turn off in a character?
Being Voldemort, pretty much.
26)Reason I started blogging?
I wanted a way to keep track of the books that I’d read, and I hopes someone else would find it a little interesting, as well.
27)Name a scary book?
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. It was so creepy that I still haven’t finished it.
28)Last book that made you cry?
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart had me weeping.
29)Last book that you gave 5 stars?
Probably We Were Liars by E. Lockhart.
30)Any favorite book titles?
The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green by Joshua Braff.

It’s an ARC (Advanced Reader’s Copy) of a book I got from netgalley.com called Dead Ringer.
33)Last book adaptation you watched?
Paper Towns by John Green.
34)A book character you always wanted to talk to?
I would love to speak with Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter.
35)An author you always wanted to talk to?
Markus Zusak. I want to ask if he’ll adopt me and teach me his ways.
36)Favorite Book snack?
Nothing, anything, everything. I don’t make it a rule to eat when I read because I would probably be as big as a barn.
37)Book world you want to live in?
Probably Harry Potter. I’d like to be a witch, please.
38)Book world you DON’T want to live in?
The Hunger Games. I ain’t trying to get reaped.
39)Last time you smelled a book?
I honestly don’t understand the obsession with the smell of books. I prefer hardware stores.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

The Cave by Mumford and Sons has always made me think of The Hunger Games.
