Hi everyone! I recently interviewed Mandy from The Romance Bookie. She's a really awesome blogger :) Here's the interview:
Describe yourself in five words. Reader (obviously ;)), devoted, shy, nice, and polite (haha I suck at describing myself)
What’s your favorite book by Meg Cabot? :) Ooh…I'm guessing this is a question specifically for me ;). There are just SOOOO many favorites by Meg, but if I had to choose only one (and I've read over 50!!), I'd have to pick the one I've read the most and that is the third Princess Diaries book, "Princess in Love". However, her "Heather Wells" series is also awesome!! I'm very biased when it comes asking for my opinion on a Meg Cabot book, lol.
What are your favorite blogs to visit? Hmm…there are SOOO many awesome blogs out there!! The ones I go to often are The Story Siren, The Book Belles ;), Kody Keplinger's (The author of "The DUFF", and "A Midsummer's Nightmare"), YA-Aholic, In Between Reading and Writing, and I am a Reader, Not a Writer. So many others too though!!
Out of all the book events you’ve attended which one has been your favorite? Hmm…hands down Passion and Prose in February. There I got to meet Meg Cabot (who I've been dreaming of meeting since picking up my first Princess Diaries book in 2005), Marissa Meyer (Cinder) (I actually got to sit right next to Marissa and talk and eat lunch with her), Beth Revis (Across the Universe), Andrea Cremer (Nightshade), Marie Lu (Legend), Jessica Spotswood (Born Wicked), and Sara Etienne Wilson (Harbinger). However, the Gayle Forman, Stephenie Perkins, and Nina LaCour event was also awesome! It was where I got to meet a new blogger, under the name The Book Belles ;)
Without my blog, I will admit though I don't think I would have had the opportunity to go to these awesome events, only because I probably wouldn't have heard about them! Passion and Prose was a dream come true for me, such an awesome day!
When you are in a reading slump, is there a certain book or genre you turn to? When I'm in a slump, which is pretty rarely, because I don't really have the option when I've got over a hundred books on my shelf that I haven't even read yet, I usually turn to a Meg Cabot book or the Twilight Series, or Kody Keplinger's "The DUFF"! Love the Princess Diaries, Twilight Series, and "The DUFF", I usually read those at least once a year each. :)
What has been your favorite blogging moment so far? My absolute favorite blogging moment…SOOOO many!! But among them was hosting Meg-a-Readers this past summer, which was honoring Meg Cabot! Meg was so awesome, she sent me a package with a personalized letter thanking me and Diana (over at Little Miss Drama Queen (http://lmdqueen.blogspot.com/)). Then all the awesome interviews I've gotten to do, including one with Meg, Kody Keplinger, and Miranda Kenneally. Those were all pretty surreal and awesome!! :)
Getting all these awesome signed books!! My collection has grown SOOO much since starting in December of 2010.
Oh and having a video chat with Kody Keplinger!! That was awesome!! :)
If you could choose any book to be made into a movie, what book would you pick? Who would you cast in the movie? TOOO many!!
Kody Keplinger's "The DUFF" is one. I love Kody's choice for Bianca, she would choose Mae Whitman (Parenthood, Tv show).
Also Simone Elkeles's "Perfect Chemistry". I'm not sure who'd I'd want to play Alex or Brittany, but Simone's models are pretty awesome! I really believe this one would make an awesome modern day "West Side Story"!!
And I'm waiting for a "Heather Wells" TV show from Meg Cabot's series!! :) Too many to name lol!
I'm SUPER excited for both "Breaking Dawn Part 2" and "City of Bones" next August!!!
What’s the most recent book you’ve read, and what did you think of it? Well, currently I'm rereading the Twilight Saga, which I like to do each time one of the movies is released. I'm currently on "New Moon". Never get tired of that series, lol.
But the most recent book I read, that I hadn't read before was Rachel Harris's "My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century", which was super cute!!
