Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award


I was nominated by Jo from at Drifting Pages. (You can see Jo’s post about it on her blog as well.) Thank you, Jo!

The rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site
  • Put the award logo on your blog
  • Answer the ten questions they’ve set you
  • Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer
  • Nominate ten people

Jo’s Questions:

  1. If a book was written about your life, what would the title be? I think the title is yet to be determined.
  2. What was the first book you can remember reading (or being read to you)? I can’t find the first book I read myself much to my dismay but Chris Van Allsburg’s books and Young Guinevere by Robert D. San Souci hold special places in my heart (and on my shelves still).
  3. What’s your faourite genre of books? Fantasy. Always fantasy.
  4. If you could choose one book to be turned into a movie adaptation, what would it be?Hmmm. Assuming it would be done very, very well The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson.
  5. What’s your favorite reading format: Hardback, Paperback or E-book? A combination of hardcover and paperback. I read whatever format I get the book in. Hardcover is sturdier but paperback is a lot easier to carry on my commute.
  6. Do you come from a family of readers, or are you the only one? Yes! My mom has always been an avid reader and my aunt edited math textbooks for HMH when I was younger so I had tons of their books as a child.
  7. Have you asked for any books for Christmas? If so, which ones? I only request books for blogger swaps. Nicole and I always exchange books but she knows me well enough that I don’t have to make a wishlist!
  8. Have you ever been to a book festival or author event? Yes because I am spoiled rotten. I have been to BEA for the past few years and go to many author events at local bookstores.
  9. Do you have a favorite bookshop you visit often? Maybe an indie in your hometown/city? I don’t know if it’s a favorite (I have a weird relationship with it because I used to work there) but I spend a fair amount of time at Books of Wonder. I also love the Barnes and Noble at Union Square and The Strand (largely because they will buy books when I want to resell some).
  10. Do you own any signed copies of books? If so, which ones? Again, yes because I am spoiled rotten I have many signed books. Right now my most prized ones are: Seraphina and Shadow Scale by Rachel Hartman as well as Gabrielle Zevin’s Birthright trilogy.
