Danni’s Questions

What are you currently reading, and are you enjoying it so far?
I’m currently reading Ziggy, Stardust, and Me and am so excited to finally get a chance to read it. I’m loving it already and am only 10 pages into the story.

What is your biggest bookish pet peeve?
I can’t stand when books have written notes in the margins or have highlights on it.

Tell me an interesting fact about yourself

I find viruses and diseases fascinating and find some sort of beauty in their terror.

Which TV show could you watch over and over again, and not get bored?

My go to TV show that I can do re-watchings of will always be Grey’s Anatomy. I’m currently on my second re-watch and can’t wait to start it all over again, you always catch new things.

Which fictional character would you love to be friends with?

Um there’s so many to pick from and what makes it difficult is that depending on what age in my life it was there would be a different character. I think if I had to pick and I was the age I am now I would have to say Otis from the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod by Z Brewer.

How are your bookshelves organised?

I tend to change them every time that I do book photos and they are organized by hard covers all together and paperbacks together. After that I separate them by things I’ve read and haven’t read.

Do you have any hobbies?

Besides reading, I like to write and watch television. It’s very specific shows though and they’re all medical shows. I also love playing video games when I have the time, and going to the mall.

What is your favourite famous work of art?

I’m not sure I really have one.

Do you collect any type of bookish merch?

Bookmarks mostly

Which is your favourite season, and why?

My favorite season changes all the time and right now I’m loving Fall. I just love all the fall colors and decor and then that’s when the holiday season really begins.

Which book or series brings you the most happiness?

This is another thing that changes for me all the time and when I wrote this I would have to say The Hot Zone. Every time I see that book it just reminds me of how much I love it and how much I love reading about viruses and diseases. Now that I’m revisiting this and just having finished Crisis in the Red Zone, I would have to say any of the Ebola books by Richard Preston.

This or That Book Tag

This is the first tag time I’ve been tagged on something on my blog and I figured why not give it a try. Chapel over at Kavordian Library tagged me in this one so thank you for that. This is a nice fun way to get to know me.

The Couch or the Bed

This one is so hard for me to decide because I like to keep my bed for only sleeping or else getting to sleep becomes a chore for me. The couch is comfy only for a short period of time though and then I get distracted by 500 other things. I think I’ll go with the bed but not necessarily my bed, like I love using my mom’s bed to read in when no one is around.

Main Male or Female MC

I love a female MC, I don’t think I’ve read very many books that have a great main male character. I love the perspective that a good female MC brings to a book.

Sweet or Salty Snacks

I have this discussion at work all the time and I will always stick to sweet snacks. Salty snacks are good once in a while but only in limited quantity but for sweets just give me them all. I don’t think that there is a sweet snack that I don’t enjoy.

Trilogies or Quartets

This one really depends on the book, if the plot can get done in three books then there is no need for a fourth one. I think most of my favorite series are done in trilogies.

A.M. or P.M.

So I used to be a P.M person and love reading through the night until I started a full time job. I love reading in the A.M. now, there’s something about breaking into a good book so early in the morning when people aren’t awake yet. The world just seems so quiet and at peace.

First or Third P.O.V.

I love a good first P.O.V. because it feels like I’m right there in the story. It makes all the emotions that I feel throughout the book 10x better. I also love how mysterious it is because you don’t know much about the other character’s actions or thoughts.

Libraries or Bookstores

I used to always be at book stores but then Borders closed and I couldn’t find a new favorite. I love the library and am a big advocate for them because you cant get better than free media renting. The library also has so much to offer like programming and a place to build community with others.

Laugh or Cry

I want a book to make me cry because I cry for sad things and happy things and anything that gives me overwhelming emotions of any kind makes me cry.

Black or White Covers

Hm well I don’t really have a preference for the color of books. I don’t organize my shelve using colors so I like a variety of them.

Character or Plot Driven

I prefer a great plot driven book because I feel like the book goes a lot faster. I want the characters to be well developed though so I feel like I want a good balance of these in the things that I read.
