What is your favorite type of blog post?

I really like doing review, tags, and award blog posts.

What is a book so amazing that you could talk about it forever and why?

Wow. Choosing one book is pretty difficult. I read for fun and there are so many amazing books. Hmm… I’m going to go with one of my favorite sci-fi book series right now which is the Starstruck Saga by S.E. Anderson. This series is honestly laugh out loud hilarious, unique, charming, and just ridiculously FUN! I know I know, you’re probably thinking why on earth am I choosing a sci-fi series when the books I read are mostly romance. Well, that’s because this series is simply AWESOME. Oh and I also really do love sci-fi and have always been fascinated by the idea that aliens exist. You can read my review for the third book, Traveler, HERE.

And those covers are absolutely stunning!!!

What is your favorite book you read this year and why?

I just did a Top Ten Tuesday Post for the Best Books I’ve Read This Year, so if I were to choose one from that list, I’d have to go with Everything Under the Sun by Jessica Redmerski . It was an intriguing, heartbreaking, and fantastic edge of your seat post apocalyptic thriller with a deliciously swoony slow burn romance! I loved the storyline, the writing, the characters, the romance, and all the feels. And the ending most definitely left me wanting more. You can read my full review by clicking the title.

Phannie’s Questions:

#1 – Tell us a funny story about yourself?

I moved here to the U.S. from the Philippines when I was 9 years old so it was difficult to adjust. I didn’t have friends and I didn’t like school very much. One day, I really didn’t feel like going to school. I told my mom I was feeling sick, but since I obviously wasn’t she made dress up and go to school. Anyway, once we were on campus, I refused to get out of the car. I kept telling my mom I had a stomach ache. Finally the principal came out and tried to talk to me. I went to a Catholic School and the principal was a nun. I guess my mom figured I’d be intimated and just go to school…BUT she was wrong. I stood my ground. Then the principal started pulling me out… I mean she was literally trying to haul me out of the car. So what did I do??? I kicked her! To my defense, I told her over and over I was feeling sick and she kept pulling my arms. I mean who does that to a scared 9 year old girl?!?! I ended up going with my mom to work, getting in big trouble, and apologizing to the principal the next week. Now my mom and I just laugh about it.

#2 – What is your favourite holiday destination?

Mostly just home. I love being with family and just relaxing during the holidays. While I do love to travel, I’m a homebody most of the time and would rather read a book or binge T.V. shows. If I were to pick one destination though, I’d pick Scotland. I’ve been obsessing about Scotland for a while now.

#3 – Your favourite travel method? (by foot, train, bus, …)

Hmm… probably by car. I love riding the train though, but the bus system in Los Angeles is pretty crazy. It’s always so crowded.

#4 – What kind of books do you read? 

I read YA, NA and some middle grade book. I’m a romance addict so those are mostly what I read. I enjoy fantasy, scifi, paranormal, and recently have been getting into thrillers.

#5 – Your favourite TV shows?

I have so many…Supernatural, Game of Thrones, The 100, Lucifer, and Westworld just to name a few.

My Questions:

#1 – What’s your favorite place to read?

#2 – If you could read one book over and over, what would it be?

#3 – Have you ever DNF’ed a book?

#4 – If you had a superpower, what would it be?

#5 – Your favorite movies?
