For bloggers out there that haven't yet come across your blog, how would you describe it to them?
My blog is a book blog (obviously) where I review the books I read and generally talk about them. It (hopefully) has a friendly atmosphere and anyone is welcome to comment, take part and become a follower. My blog is colourful, entertaining and I hope you all enjoy it!
Does your blog have any special qualities?
I am not sure my blog has that many special qualities, but I hope it is different in a good way that people enjoy reading. I have a monthly post where people can judge which cover they like best (this is new). I also have pages where I post upcoming releases, what is coming soon to the blog and an index of my book reviews. On my blog I also have a poll, what I am reading, author sites, my button and a 'book of the month'.
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only have the books of one author, who would it be and why?
This is tricky! There are so many brilliant books that it is very hard to choose just one. And most books rarely you can enjoy reading again and again. If I had to choose it would be 'Swapped By A Kiss' by Luisa Plaja. It is not necessarily my favourite book, but it would keep me occupied when stranded. This fab book cheers me up and really is just....fab!!
Which movie (that has been based on a book) is your favourite?
I would have to say one of the HP movies, since they aren't many movies that I know of based on book. My favourite one is the latest one 'Deathly Hallows'. It was real and imaginative and the director did a really good job. I am a HP geek!! *HP meaning Harry Potter.
Do you write any stories in your spare time? What type of genre do you mainly go for?
Yes, I love to write stories. I manily write about real life problems like Jacqueline Wilson and Cathy Cassidy. Sometimes I write stories on romance similar to Luisa Plaja. However I am currently writing a short story where a girl goes into the future, when being whisked away by a tornado. I started writing a novel but I never finished it. I would to have a writing profession someday and write novels for kids - finished novels!
Which character (in any book) do you think resembles your own personality?
I think Pearl from 'My Sister Jodie' by Jacqueline Wilson. She is quiet, obedient (ish) and LOVES to read! And write. We don't look anything alike but this question is asking about personality.
Which Harry Potter (by J.K Rowling) book is your favourite?
Definitely the last one. It is full of surprising twists and everything comes together at the end. My second favourite is the 'Half Blood Prince' because that is one of the amazing books too. Go J.K Rowling!!
Are you more of a Cathy Cassidy fan or a Jacqueline Wilson fan and why?
Ah...ooh....good question. Correction: hard question! I really can't decide. They write much different books yet they are both amazing writers. CC's books I can relate too and they have good story lines. However JW's books are really original and gripping. Sorry, I can't decide!!
Which fictional character would you love to be friends with?
Inide from 'Indigo Blue' by Cathy Cassidy. She is imaginative, a good friend and I think would be really fun to talk too. Also, I would love to meet her cute little sister Mistie!!
Which book can you not wait to come out?
Can I say two? 'Kiss, Date, Love, Hate' by Luisa Plaja is coming out in July and sounds fantastic and 'Vanilla Skye' by Cathy Cassidy is the second book in the The Chocolate Box Girls series and I really enjoyed the first one.
Quick Fire Questions:
Favourite snack? Crisps.
Favourite animal? I love every animal. I would love to have a pet dog the most though!
Favourite colour? Blue.
Favourite hobby? Reading of course :)
Hardcover of Paperback? Paperbacks are cheaper but hardbacks tend to be nicer covers... To be honest I don't mind - as long as the same brilliant story is inside waiting for me...
Thanks again for answering my questions, Zoe!
