Happy almost-June everybody! Can you believe 2015 is almost halfway over?!? Well, as I was wandering around the blogging world I learned of Book Bloggers International Juneterviews. The idea is bloggers interviewing bloggers in a fun and creative way. I was paired up with Sara from The Great Catsby, and first of all -- I love her blog! Cats! Drinks! Books! What's NOT to love?!
For our Juneterview, we came up with the questions to ask each other and decided to answer them visually. (Side note: This is super fun and everyone should try it!)
1. What is your favorite emoticon and why?
2. Favorite book/drink pairing?
3. What five books do you always find yourself recommending to people who ask you for book recommendations?
4. You somehow roped someone into writing your memoirs. What's the name of your book?
5. Other than old books, what would you say is the best smell in the world?
6. Which title in your bookshelf are you least likely to read in public?
7. If you could pick any character from a book to be your sibling, who would you pick?
8. If you were to imagine the pages of the book you are currently reading to be miles, what is the furthest place you could get to? (aka 300 pages is 300 miles.... what's 300 miles from you....)
Favorite smell: newly cut lawn. Just one of the things I have in common with Hermoine Granger.
Favorite emoticon: Because this is how I feel I smile at work when someone orders a really obnoxious and complicated drink.
Pages as distance: My house is exactly 899 miles from Harry Potter world in Orlando. So if if my book could get me 973 pages I'd be able to get all the way there and maybe a few scenic stops along the way.
Book most embarrassed to read in public: Only becaue I have tried before and it gets a lot of comments. Especially from older ladies who are not amused.
Any character as a sibling: I'd pick Light from the series Death Note. Mainly because it would be pretty bad ass to have a sibling who became master of Death.
If a book title was my memoirs: I am CONSTANTLY hungry, and my whole life has been a battle between trying to eat as much food as I can and not being lifted from my house by a crane.
The five books I would reccomend to everyone: These are some my absolute all time favorite titles, that I feel are good and low key enough that almost everyone can enjoy them, no matter their taste in literary genres.
My favorite book and drink pairing: Any kind of graphic novel (Scott Pilgrim however holds a very special place in my heart) and any type of delicious whiskey make such an amazing combination. It always brings the art to life when you have a nice bourbon buzz going.
