I know I promised a post about one of my all time favorite movies from my childhood… The Last Unicorn. And I will do that!
But I was tagged for this bloggy hoppy thingy…
By a Twitter writer friend and fellow Whovian Lisa Hope! Go check out her blog.
I thought I’d play. Why not. Here are Lisa’s questions for me… and these things I call answers.
1. What’s your least favorite book?
Oooooohhhh. Well, in high school they made me read Wuthering Heights, but I couldn’t finish it. Blah.
Not long ago, I was sucked into the swirling Twilight abyss. I read the first, but said no to the rest. Not for me.
2. What’s your favorite book from your childhood?
I’m gonna cheat here…
1. The Spell of the Sorcerer’s Skull by John Bellairs. It scared the crud out of me… I loved it!
2. Another horror… The Watcher in the Woods by Florence Engel Randall.
3. And the last one that really stuck with me… A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle.
I still have those books from so long ago, I was never able to give them up.
3. What author(s) inspired you to become a writer?
Well, J. K. Rowling. I know! But as I was getting sucked into the world of Harry Potter, I realized that the stories in my head were for kids/teens. The light bulb moment.
But also, Neal Shusterman. I dream of writing like him. So good!
4. How do you feel about eBooks?
There are words I can read. Works for me. And I love my Nook.
5. Are you a compulsive reader or do you take your time getting through the story?
Depends. Maybe a bit of both. I will tend to forget things like making dinner and will ignore life for the right book.
6. Which book(s) have you reread the most?
The Harry Potter series. Probably The Goblet of Fire has been read the most. But I have read Stephen King’s The Shining a few times.
7. If you could live in any world depicted in a book, what would it be?
Don’t make me choose!
8. If you could kiss any book character, who would it be?
I would give Liesel Meminger from The Book Thief a big kiss and a hug because… she’s awesome.
9. Do you communicate with your favorite authors on Twitter?
Not really. However, Tony DiTerlizzi did respond to me once. As did Patrick Ness… O.O
10. If you could have dinner with four literary characters, who would you choose?
But there are so many… okay…
WHAT A DINNER THAT WOULD BE!
Once again, I am breaking protocol and not tagging people. I know. Let the Universe strike me down.
