My answers to Julia's questions:
1. What is your favourite place to read? My favourite place to read is in my fuzzy chair in my room it is cozy and did I mention extremely fuzzy! :)
2. What blog post of yours is the best representation of who you are? Probably Luna Lovegood's soundtrack. I relate to her as a character, we look very similar and many of the songs I chose for her relate to my life a well.
3. Have you ever dreamt of becoming and author? The answer to this is yes! I love to read and my love to read inspires me to write as well it has secretly been my dream to write a book and have J.K Rowling herself write the recommendation quote thing on the front cover.
4. What's better reading or writing? Hmmm.. tough question but I would have to say reading I read to escape to another world and relax which is great feeling. Forgetting my worries for a while is wonderful. When I write I put a lot of emotion in my writing, so it is hard for me sometimes. So reading for the freedom it provides.
5. What fictional world do you most want to live in? Hogwarts! Do I even need to explain. Fine three words magic, feasts, adventure.
6. Do you like/agree with common trends in reading currently? Honestly I don't know what very many of those trends are. I like reading dystopian novels which I know are trending right now but I am not big on romance novels. I also love to blog on the books I have read which seems pretty popular.
7. What would you dream library look like? My dream library would be a lot like the Ravenclaw common room with high ceilings and an airy feel to it. It would be furnished with comfy blue fuzzy chairs and lovely mahogany shelves. Another very important feature of my library would be that the books would be unlimited and if you found a book you loved you could keep it and another would magically take its place.
8. When do you judge wether or not you take time to read a blog? Honestly aesthetics play a major part in this if a blog looks pretty it will draw my attention and if the first post it interesting I will most likely take the time to read it. Also a post about Harry Potter does not hurt.
9. What's your view on graphic novels? I will read any from of literature if it is interesting enough. As a painter I can also gain inspiration from the illustrations in the graphic novels. So yes I will read and enjoy them if they have good themes and plots
10. E-books, Hardcover or paper back anything I can get my hands on at the soonest possible time!
11. What makes you want to blog? I started this blog as a school blog but I have gone waaaaaaaaay past the criteria because I want to share my love for literature.
Random facts about me:
1. I am a huge dog lover I collect non-fiction dog books (I have 15!) and it is my goal in life to be able to identify and remember the names of all 350+ dog breeds registered by the AKC
