2. Name a book you have read MORE than once.
I read a lot of books over again, but most recently New Moon

3. Has a book ever fundamentally changed the way you see life?
Absolutely without a doubt yes

4. How do you choose a book? e.g. by cover design and summary, recommendations or reviews?
Summary and reviews. I won't read a book if it doesn't have well developed characters and if the narrator doesn't have a strong voice. I love feeding off of other people's opinions of books, I usually tend to agree with them, but sometimes not. So I go with my gut sometimes based on the summary.

5. Do you prefer fiction or non-fiction?
Well I like young adult realistic fiction and fantasy.

6. What’s more important in a novel - beautiful writing or a gripping plot?
Beautiful writing, a plot could be completely original and outstanding, but if it's not executed properly it's not really worth while.

7. Most loved/memorable character (character/book).
Hannah Baker/ Clay.... from Thirteen Reasons Why. I put both of them down because I felt like Hannah was living through Clay to tell her story to us after her death. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but still that's my answer :)

8. Which book or books can be found on your nightstand/coffee table at the moment?
Nightstand: Book of Luke by Jenny O'Connel
Coffee Table: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

8. What was the last book you read, and when was it?
Thirteen Reasons Why; yesterday, I needed to clear my head, but when I started reading it I couldn't put it down so I finished it in one sitting.

9. Have you ever given up on a book halfway in?
No, once I start a book I HAVE to finish it. I have, however, stopped reading a book and started another one. Like Thirteen Reasons Why, it was "calling" to me to read, which was just what I needed to hear at the time. So this led to me drifting away from The Adoration of Jenna Fox, now I'm onto the Book of Luke, maybe... it honestly depends on my mood. So to answer the question no, but I have stopped and came back to finish it.

10. Can you recommend a good book? If so, what is it?
Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, everyone should read this, everyone. It explains a lot, and will stop so much before it's to late... READ IT

11. Is there a book you haven’t read, and should have?
Well Tom Sawyer, because I totally flunked that test... but in "real life" I should read The Host, I keep hearing good things about it, but I'm afraid that I'll be let down because I have The Twilight Saga on such a high pedestal that it can never be reached.
