Sunshine Blog Award
I was nominated by Alexia Smit for a Sunshine Blog Award! Love that chic – thanks Alexia!
So, here are the rules…
1. Include the award logo in your post or on your blog
2. Answer 10 questions about yourself – you can use mine or make up your own
3. Nominate 10 – 12 other wonderful bloggers
4. Let the other nominees know they are nominated and include links to their blog
5. Link the person who nominated you
Let the fun begin…
1. What book are you currently reading?
Just finished Angelfall by Susan Ee. What a surprisingly awesome read!
2. Vampires or werewolves?
That is a tough one. It’s a tie – can I just go with mermaids here?
3. How many books have you read so far this year?
Only nine under my belt so far, but in my defense, can I add how much I’ve written? Upwards of 30,000 words. Not to mention the 50,000 or so I’ve edited…have I redeemed my lack of reading yet?
4. Who is your favorite character in a book you’ve read?
Because she is so fresh in my head, has to be Penryn from Angelfall . I’d like to think I would definitely kick ass like her during an apocalypse.
5. Heels, sneakers, flip flops or clogs?
Flip flops, but my feet are bare probably 80% of the time. A luxury of working from home.
6. What’s your dream vacation?
A trip around Eastern Europe – Romania, Bulgaria, maybe Croatia, followed by a tour of Wales, Scotland and Ireland! Sorry spawn ‘o mine – no kids allowed.
7. Who is your favorite author?
Diana Gabaldon, hands down. She has a huge following with her Outlander Series.
8. Favorite book/series?
9. Why do you enjoy reading?
Reading for me, serves two purposes. Research and escape. I do believe my writing craft gets better with every book I read – there is so much to learn from these great authors! Reading also gives me a break, let’s me escape into another world leaving me better prepared to deal with mine.
10. What is your favorite quote from a book?
“We now play a permanent game of I-am-crazier-and-scarier-than-you. And in that game, my mother is our secret weapon.” From Angelfall. Have I mentioned how much I love that book?
