Q. What writing device or trick most irritates you when reading a book? For example, if an author employs an omnipotent narrator that is sometimes considered bad form.
A. Honestly I can’t really think of any, I guess most of the time its mostly only when they use a metaphor I don’t understand mainly due to the fact that I live in a bubble :3
Q. What do you hope to accomplish with your blog? Is it to one day become an author yourself, just for fun, maybe get some online attention, or maybe something very different?
A. I never set out with a main goal in my head, it just started off as a “Yeah I think I could do this” and I really do enjoy the hours I put behind it, I know its not as many as a lot of you but I guess my main accomplish right now is to keep going and never give up. Surprises are fun :3
Q. What is the BIGGEST word you’ve seen used in a book lately – that made you stop and look it up? Might as well leave the definition and the book too.
A. Honestly? I never look up words when I don’t understand them, all I do is stop and read the words again in case I misread it and then I’ll continue reading the sentence and by the end of said sentence it normally makes sense, if it doesn’t then I’ll just read the full sentence and BAM! It’ll make sense. I’m just a little slow at times. So unfortunately I don’t have a large word, definition or book to share with you *o*
Q. What hyped up book do you think was all the talk?
A. The Hunger Games easily! Such a fabulous series even if the ending was weaker than the rest.
Also this week Northern Plunder is one of the features :3 How sweet is that, apologise for not scheduling the post for an earlier time to all those that have probably already stopped by… Thank you for taking the time to hop on over here though! I’ll get back to you all eventually *o*
Q. What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the fuss?
Lauren’s Answer: Easily The Lovely Bones, I had strong problems with the ending of this book especially after researching into the author, everything just screamed “wrong” at me. It made it difficult to think positively of the book regardless how the rest of it was or how it made me feel.
Q. What are book(s) are you currently reading? What do you think of them?
I am currently reading Miss P’s Home for Peculiar Children and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, both of which I’m really enjoying and can’t wait to get my reviews up! Not to mention they both have lovely covers.
Q. Best Cover? What is the best cover of a book you didn’t like?
Hands down The Lovely Bones. Its not the worlds most beautiful cover but its simple and pretty and for once relates to the story but I absolutely hated the ending with every ounce of myself. I’d be happy to sit here all day and rant about how wrong it was to include that
scene for now, if its in high demand I’ll make a post about it, I think this is also the only book where I will say the movie is better for simply changing the ending.
Nia Jones: The best cover of a book I don’t like . Wow that’s a hard one these days I try my best not to choose a book buy its cover, but if I had to choose one it would probably be I am Number 4. The cover screams space and Sci-Fi both of which I love and when I opened it i just didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought.
