Inform them of nomination by commenting on one of their posts


 

I want to thank Keely from IReaditAndWept for nominating me.

Questions asked:

What was the first book you ever read? Honestly I can’t remember my very first book, but I know I read Across Five April’s by Irene Hunt a million times growing up.

Who was your favorite school teacher? Mrs. Mortimer, my Junior Year Chemistry teacher

Have you ever had a book hangover? (i.e. unable to read anything or pretty much focus on life because of a book) Yes I believe I have. There were books I couldn’t put down until I finished them.

What did you want to be when you grew up (as a kid)? Either a teacher or an actor

If you had a million dollars what would be one of the first things you spent it on? Paying off my school loans would be first, then maybe buying a bunch more books and a new kindle.

Say you had a fire and you could only choose to save one book off your shelf, which would you pick, and why? Probably Goodnight Moon because it was a book my grandmother read to me.

Are you a cat or a dog person? Dog.

What book are you currently reading? Trying desperately to read Loop.

If you could pick any book to describe your life which would you choose? Not 100% sure I could pick just one.

Many authors write under a pen name, if you had one what would your name be? Either Kurson Kilpatrick or Violet Noele

What is your favorite quote, preferably from a book?  I’m not sure it’s my favorite, but I say it all the time: “May the odds be ever in our favor.”
