Side note: Over the past couple of days, I’ve been working on gathering titles for March and April releases, and they’re now up! And let me just tell you, there are a lot of books coming out in the first part of the years!

It’s late at night and you’re looking up at the stars when you see a shooting star, what wish would you make in that moment and why?
This is going to sound so cheesy, but it would probably be to find my true love. In this day and age, everyone’s after something, so it’s hard to tell if a person is truly looking for a relationship that you read about in books that makes you go awww or if he’s just playing you for kicks. Then adding a million other things that going on in life, it makes it even that much more difficult trying to find someone worthy of spending the rest of my life with.
What are you top five books on you holiday wish list this year?
Surprisingly, I didn’t ask for any books for Christmas. *gasp* I know the book nerd didn’t ask for the thing that makes her heart sing. But over the past couple of years when I gave people lists of books and some of the fun is taken out of the surprise because if it looks like a book then chances are it’s a book. And to me, it’s always so much fun to see the gifts that come from the heart and have a story as to why it’s gifted. Now if it’s a book I had mentioned while I was talking and not looking forward to getting is a different story because then the person remembered it even though I was just talking about it a normal conversation.Back to the question, I would have asked for
- The 10th Anniversary Ed. of Clockwork Angel
- I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn
- Verify by Joelle Charbonneau
- Courting Darkness by Robin LaFever
- Immoral Code by Lillian Clark
Aside from books, what are some of you greatest passions? List six!
Music, animals, food, learning, blogging, and art!
Since it’s the holidays, let’s get festive! Tell me your top five favorite holiday movies to watch this time of year!
Oh good heavens, I’m not a huge movie person so… let’s see if I can do this
- The Grinch (the old animated version)
- It’s a Wonderful Life
- A Christmas Story (more of a tradition than anything else)
- Home Alone 2
- Santa Clause 2
Whew! I did it!
If you had a spirit animal, what animal would it be and why?
I’m going to be very specific and say a miniature schnauzer (I have one and I think we are a lot alike). Speaking broadly, it would be a dog because I feel like I’m smart, loyal, protective, small in size but has a lot of determination (think miniature schnauzer), and always doing something.
If you got to be any Disney character for a day, who would it be and why?
It might be Belle from Beauty and the Beast because of the beast’s library *heart eyes*, or Cinderella because she’s so great with animals and Prince Charming.
Let’s talk about underrated books! What are you top five choices for books you think are underrated or barely hear anyone talking about?
An Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson, Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins, The Testing series by Joelle Charbonneau, and The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak.
Tell me about the first book you fell in love with! What book was it and what made you fall in love with it some much that you can’t seem to forget it!
The first book that I associate with my love for reading is Percy Jackson. I was in the 6th grade (almost 8 years ago), and I honestly couldn’t tell you what made me pick up this book. But between the Greek mythology, the adventure, and the characters, I fell in love with this series (and reading). I loved that Percy was a preteen who was essentially a no body and he turns out to be the son of a god and becomes one of the keys to saving the world.
As the end of the year quickly approaches, what are three things that you’re hoping 2020 will bring?
Self happiness, strength, and life long friends.
What are your top five favorites scents to smell?
Vanilla and sugary goodness, apple and cinnamon, fruit, puppies (because they do have a unique smell), and books!
