Three Things About Myself

I’m seriously running out of facts/things to say about myself, so I may have already mentioned these.

  • I fell off a moving vehicle when I was about 6 years old while I was living in the Philippines. No broken bones and just a few scratches.
  • I’m a Disneyland Annual Pass Member
  • I was a teacher for one year (I taught 4th grade and only had 14 students) and my experience was pretty horrible that I never want to be one ever again.

Michelle’s Questions

1. Which author’s books would you buy even without reading the synopsis? I’d buy anything written by Marie Lu, Marissa Meyer, Kasie West, Nicola Yoon, and Tahereh Mafi just to name a few.

2.Have you bought a book based on the cover? Which one was it? So many. I’d probably have to list half of my collection. But if there is one book/series I bought based on the cover that would be the Doon series by Lorie Langdon and Carey Corp. I was browsing on Bookoutlet when I saw this book. I haven’t heard anything about it, but the cover’s stunning. I didn’t read the series until I had all the books and now it’s one of my favorites!

3.Best book you’ve read in 2017? You’re killing me here. It’s already so difficult to pick my top 10 let alone A BOOK… There are so many books I loved this year — some were fun, others were heartbreaking but beautiful, while plenty were so swoony and delicious. It hurts to pick just one but… I think that the No Ordinary Star series is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING – it’s enthralling, well-written, and just a wonderful story that will make you feel so many different emotions. It’s written in 3 parts with about 200 pages each so you can definitely binge the entire thing in one weekend. I guarantee you, once you start reading, you won’t be able to stop.

4.The most anticipated book for 2018? Gosh where do I even begin… Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi is way up on that list. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, Listen to Your Heart by Kasie West, From Twinkle with Love by Sandhya Menon, and Always Never Yours by Austin Siegemund-Broka and Emily Wibberley. I could definitely list more though! Maybe like 50 or more.

5.Candles or flowers? Definitely candles.

Latanya’s Questions

Favorite Pizza Topping? I’m a meat kind of girl, so definitely pepperoni, sausage, and Canadian bacon.

If You Won a First-Class Plane Ticket, Where Would You Go? This one’s easy – Scotland. I’ve been obsessed with Scotland since finishing the Doon Series by Lorie Langdon and Carey Corp.

If You Could Have a Co-Author? There are sooo many amazing authors… how can I just pick one. I think at this moment I would pick Colleen Hoover. Hopeless is one of my favorite books and I love romance stories that has all the FEELS.

What’s Your Typical Saturday Like? Make breakfast for the fam, walk the dog, do laundry, organize my books, read a little, bookstagram, catch up on shows, walk the dog again, and spend time with my boyfriend.

For One Million Dollars, Would You Rather: Stick Your Hand in a Box of Snakes or Stick Your Hand in a Tub of Spiders? Definitely hand in a box of snakes. I’ve held a snake before and it wasn’t that bad, but spiders… NOOOO WAY!!! Even for a Billion of Dollars!
