The mini-interview meme has been making the rounds. I got my questions from Alea over at Pop Culture Junkie. Here is what she asked me.
1. What's your favorite graphic novel.
This one is easy because I've read only a handful so far. My favorite at the moment is Bone #2 (reviewed here). Fone Bone is really cute in it, and the humor is laugh-out-loud-funny.
2. What's your favorite nonfiction book?
I can never say. For example, If I say Pride and Prejudice, then I'll immediately think, "What about Jane Eyre?" If I say Lord of the Rings, I'll start to think about The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. So my standard answer is, "The book I"m reading now!"
Major Edit (note to self: don't answer questions without first drinking plenty of coffee): My favorite NONfiction book is David McCullough's John Adams.
3. How do you choose what to read next?
I usually have no system or method at all. It's often my newest book, the one my husband just finished, or the next in a series I'm reading. This year, I've decided to join multiple challenges, so I have a rough idea of what I want to read every month. We'll see how it goes. I have a feeling that in a couple of months, my plan will fall apart!
4. Who is one character you would never ever want to trade places with?
I can't think of an exact character, but I promise you that I don't want to be a person who is beaten up, kidnapped, raped, killed, forced to marry someone he or she hates, and so on. That rules out about 75 percent of characters!
5. What is one book you thought would be fabulous and ended up being a
I'll use my latest read: Inkdeath (reviewed here). I had high hopes for it, but it didn't live up to my expectations.
Thanks Alea!! That was fun. If any of you want to play, I'll send questions to the first three people who leave a comment explicitly asking for questions.
