1. Name your top 5 favorite YA authors!
Seriously? Ya'll are just pure evil! ;) I don't know if I could ever just pick five, but I guess I'll have to try...
~ Shannon Hale,
~ Rachel Coker,
~Trenton Lee Stewart,
~ Brian Jacques,
~ and J.R.R Tolkien
(quite a mix, huh?)
2. What's the last YA book you read and what did you think of it?
Umm...let's see if I can remember...Hmmm...
I think it was Chasing Jupiter by Rachel Coker.
No, it was The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan (they're the only real books my almost 12-year-old brother will read, so I agreed to read them with him)
3. What's your favorite YA genre? (Dystopian, romance, sci-fi, contemporary, etc.)
Fantasy Fiction. I like a fantasy book with suspense, a tad bit of romance, battle scenes, comedy, and clear words...if that makes any sense.
4. Let's talk characters! Pick a character you love and tell us why?
Oh, goodness. Just one? Hmm...I think I'll have to go with Dasha from the Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale. She's a lot like me, I suppose that's why I like her. Then again, I can relate to almost ALL of Shannon's characters! Anyway, back to Dasha. She has a diplomatic approach to things, so do I, (but if talking it out doesn't work I usually show my Enna [another character in the series] side and end up pinning the person on the ground). Also, Dasha laughs and smiles like me. I know that's a weird thing to compare, but it's true! When she's especially happy, her nose wrinkles when she smiles - same with me. :)
5. Top YA villain?
6. Top YA couple?
I'd either say Dasha and Razo, or Gollum and The Ring. (no sarcasm there)
7. With dystopian on the decline, what do you think will be the next hot-trend in YA?
I have no clue, I really am never "up-to-date" on the newest trends. So, instead of saying some completely unintelligent answer, I'm gonna say: I. Have. No. Clue. But I hope it's something action-packed,epic, and funny, never forget funny.
8. What's the next YA book on your to-be-read pile?
I've been making a list of all the books I want to read over summer because I'm so super busy with school and haven't had time to read much (sniffle). Here's a fragment of that list:
Cinder and Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
The Nine Lives of Chloe King trilogy by Liz Braswell (maybe)
The Dragons in Our Midst series by Brian Davis
9. What's the fastest time you've ever finished reading a book in? (And what was the book?!)
Haha, I remember it so clearly the first time I read a book in a day. I was 12 and read the Little House on the Prairie book: The Long Winter. Since then, I've finished (especially good) books in a couple of intense hours...I think the last book I truly devoured was Avalon High by Meg Cabot.
10. (And now for the burning question) Do you think books should be sorted according to colour or title? (This matters.)
Color. Definitely. It looks way more organized that way. Not that I've ever done that, my books are just strewn about wherever they please.
