Hey guys! So Ani’s Books nominated me for the 20 question book tag! Thanks, Ani! But before I get started with the tag I just wanted to let you know that the Live Without You giveaway is still going on it ends February 23…there was a typo with the info about it! Sorry!!

Nominate at least 5 bloggers and inform them of their nominations.
Give them 10 new questions to answer.

How many books do you think are too many books in a book series?

I think it depends on the writer! Some writers can really handle book series…other writers I want to scream…….why do people write sequels?????

How do you feel about cliffhangers?

Cliffhangers are awesome IF I have the next part sitting right beside me. Once I was so excited about this cliffhanger and I thought I had book 2, it turns out I had book 3 ‘cries’!!

Hardback or paperback?

Hardback!!! I love the smell new books have and the sound they have when they open!

Favorite book?

Half-Blood – Jaye L. Knight

Least favorite book?

I can’t really think of one but I’d say Soldier On by Vanessa Rasanen

Love triangles, yes or no?

I guess it depends on how the writer handles them!

The most recent book you just couldn’t finish?

K-9 Korea – the untold story of America’s war dogs in the Korean War by J. Rachel Reed (honestly it just was hard to focus on reading it)! 

A book you’re currently reading?

My family just finished reading North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell 

Last book you recommended to someone?

The Ilyon Series 

Oldest book you’ve read?

The Bible (sorry I stole your answer Ani)

Newest book you’ve read?

I have absolutely no idea!

Favorite author?

Either Richard Paul Evans or Jaye L. Knight

Buying books or borrowing books?

Buying books!

A book you dislike that everyone else seems to love?

Not that I’ve read

Bookmarks or dog-ears?

Neither…I try to memorize the page number I stopped at

A book you can always re-read?

hmm I’d have to say any of the Ilyon series!

Can you read while hearing music?

Yes…I try to turn the music up really loud so I don’t hear the noise around me

One POV or multiple POVs?

Multiple…though I hate when there’s so many characters that I get confused!

Do you read a book in one sitting or over multiple days?

In one sitting definitely
