Don’t feel bound to these rules
(Most importantly) Have fun!
What’s the most recent book you’ve read?
The Paris Dressmaker by Kristy Cambron. It’s actually a re-read, because this book was just that good. Before that, I just finished Wayfarer by K. M. Weiland, Dreams of Savannah by Roseanna M. White, and The Illusionist’s Apprentice by Kristy Cambron.
What’s a common theme you’ve seen in all of your favorite books?
Characters who are hurting in one way or another. Finding hope in the darkness.
What’s the funniest book you’ve read?
*shrugs* So many of the books I read aren’t really humorous. I do find Johanna Berglund's sense of humor in Amy Lynn Green's Things We Didn't Say pretty relatable and smile-worthy.
How often do you read new books?
Anytime I find one that seems interesting and can afford to buy it. (Luckily, our church has a library.)
Do you prefer reading fiction or nonfiction?
*cringes* Definitely fiction. There’s something about a story that draws me in and illustrates a point deeper to me. But nonfiction reading is something I definitely wish I did more of. I just have to take it in short doses so I can still focus.
Who is the last fictional character you related to?
Uh . . . good question. I tend to relate more to aspects of a character than finding a character that is a carbon copy of me. I’m going to go with Evelyn Brand from When Twilight Breaks by Sarah Sundin. However, some other notable mentions before that would be Margot de Wilde (The Number of Love by Roseanna M. White), Thomas Fawkes (Fawkes by Nadine Brandes) and Johanna Berglund (Things We Didn’t Say by Amy Lynn Green).
What’s the saddest book you’ve ever read?
Healer’s Bane by Hope Ann. THAT ENDING! Otherwise, I have many books that I have sad scenes in . . . Shadow by Kara Swanson would come pretty close.
Where’s your favorite place to read?
What’s the last book that inspired you?
Oh, goodness. Many books inspire me in their own ways. The Illusionist’s Apprentice inspired me to not think worse of myself because of my differences from others. The Paris Dressmaker and Shadow both inspired me that there was still light in the darkness. (Especially Shadow, may be the most inspiring book I read this year.)
Have you ever gotten to meet an author?
Yes, at conferences and such, and I will probably not remember all of them. I got books signed by DiAnn Mills and remember attending some of Michelle Medlock Adams’ sessions. I also have traded emails with Amy Lynn Green.
My Questions (Yes, I know it only looks like 7, but if you add in all the why questions, it's really 10.)
