Katie Judges Books’ Questions:

1) Why and how did you start blogging? I started blogging because I wanted to join the book community, talk about books with fellow book lovers, and find a way to help out authors. Using WP was quite easy to start with and was free.
2) Does it ever feel like work and how do you juggle all the other responsibilities? Sometimes it feels like work if I procrastinate on writing a post, or when I let myself get overloaded with review requests, but since I am a housewife, I am okay with that feeling and can still juggle this and housework.
3) Do you ever connect with authors/chat with them? I do and I enjoy it! Mainly indie authors, but I have connected with several well known authors and they are all incredibly kind!
4) Do you like writing reviews and what do you do when you have to write a bad review? I do like writing reviews. I enjoy being honest and talking about my thoughts and feelings. When I write a bad review, I try to be respectful and state that its my own opinion and still try to point out good things about the book.
5) Do you do tags and all these things or do you just post reviews? I do tags on Mondays and Awards on Fridays. I love them!
6) Do you schedule your posts in advance or just go with it and try to post as regularly as possible? I have been scheduling my posts in advance for my reviews and sometimes for my tags.
7) Do all your friends read or are you friends with people who do not read? I do not have any friends who read besides my online blogging friends and my mom!
8) What do you feel like when watching the movie/series not following the book? I don’t like it when there are major changes unless the changes feel like they still could fit in the book. 
9) Your favorite book at any point of life? A Little Princess as a child, Gunslinger Girl now.
10) Do you stick to one genre or do you read diverse books? I usually stick to YA, but read many sub-genres within, and occasionally reach for Adult Contemporary, Horror, and Sci-Fi.
11) Did you like the books you had to read in school or not? I liked a few of them like Wuthering Heights, Beowulf, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Books, Trust, and Pixie Dust’s Questions:
  1. What is your favorite genre to read? YA!
  2. Is there a fictional character you relate to? If so, who is it? Probably Audrey Rose from SJTR and HPD because she is stubborn, speaks her mind, and likes to rise above her station and gender.
  3. Did you love the books you read in school or hate them? I loved a few of them, like the ones mentioned above, and hated The Old Man and the Sea and Life of Pi.
  4. If you could unread a book so you could experience it for the first time again, which book would you choose? Three Dark Crowns.

  10. How do you organize your bookshelves? I don’t at the moment, lol.

    1. Mainly horror or action games. My favorite is Bloodborne. I play Dark Souls 3 with my brother. We recently picked up Fortnite, and we used to play Dead Island, Left for Dead, and several of the Call of Duty games. We also used to play online games like 2Moons and Elder Scrolls. I loved the Dead Space and Bioshock games too! How about you?

  2. Congrats on all those nominations and thanks so much for nominating me too!! You definitely deserve all of them (and more) ❤ Also, for a second, I thought you were talking about Gunslinger Girl by Yu Aida but the one by Lyndsay Ely sounds amazing too!! I’m definitely adding that to my TBR 😍

      1. The one by Yu Aida is actually a manga. I read it a long time ago (I think I was around 7-8? 😂) so I don’t exactly recall it, but I do remember it having wonderfully complicated characters, a plot that doesn’t drag out, mystery and adventure! You should check it out if you’re into manga 🙂

  3. Congrats on all the noms! Love all the Q&A’s and I can so relate… Getting to read lots of books and talk about them with fellow book lovers?? Yup, def the best thing out of all of it! I’ve also been reading tons of books lately, had slowed down a bit last two months but slowly but surely it picked up. And, am I the only one who likes pineapple on my pizza? Maybe? Lol.

  4. Congrats on your award. I love your least favourite character type. I hate them soo much. Also, the hateful, bitchy girls I feel like slapping through the novel. And the “dominant”, overprotective men that some authors seem to think are amazing😩. Also, the overly scared “heroines”😕
