A couple weeks ago, to celebrate reaching 50 followers on my blog, I announced a Q + A session. I’m finally going to post the answers to all the great questions I got! Some of them were repetitive so I’ll only answer once, but I’ll give everyone credit! Thanks again to everyone for sticking with me and I hope you enjoy this Q + A.
I love this question because it was actually a part of my blogging journey. My original name was FictionalBoyfriends (can you tell I’m obsessed with cute fluffy contemporaries?) When I started my blog I thought that was all I read, but as I got to reviewing books, I realized a lot of my books didn’t fit the rating system I had created. I also realized that through the blogging community I was being introduced to many other types of books and I wanted my title to represent that. Fire and Rain Books is what is is mostly because I love the James Taylor song, and I thought this name was a lot more inclusive of all types of books while still having a theme to it.
Briana @Pages Unbound‘s Question: What is your favorite memory associated with a book?
Such a hard one! I’m going to have to go with going to Universal Studios for the first time. After reading Harry Potter when I was younger, stepping foot in Harry Potter land honestly was the coolest thing I’ve ever done. I felt transported into the story and it made the book come alive for me.
Tiana @ The Book Raven‘s Question: What is a type of book that you would read no matter what?
YA Contemporaries. While I love dystopian novels or historical fiction, they’re always just small detours from my one true love.
Payton @ Payton’s Book Thoughts‘ Question: What was the first book you can ever remember reading and loving?
I think it has to be The Hungry Caterpillar. I remember reading it over and over again in the car. I think its because I love food almost as much as I love books (I AM the hungry caterpillar), so both combined was pretty great.
Analee @ Book Snacks‘s Question: What book or series could you read over and over again without getting tired of it?
I’ve expressed my love for this series so many times, but it has to be The Starbound Trilogy. I’m so obsessed with it I have two different versions of the books (one e-book and one hardcover). I love it because the plot is complex, the characters are so real, and I love the relationships between them, And I feel like the more I read it the more I understand it (because it’s pretty scientific so some things go way over my head).
Ashley @ Bumbling About Books‘s Question: What inspired you to start your book blog?
The Replacement Crush by Lisa Brown Roberts actually inspired me to start a book blog. I didn’t even really know they existed, but Vivi is a bookworm just like us and has a book blog where she posts reviews of books she reads. I finished reading and I thought, “Huh. I have a lot of opinions. How cool would it be to start a book blog.” It was a pretty impulsive decision, but I’m glad I did it.
Mandy @ Book Princess Reviews‘ Question: If you could be transported into any book world, where would you go and why? Where would you not like to go?
I really want to be a part of the Percy Jackson world. I love Greek gods and Greek mythology, so being a part of Camp Half-Blood and fighting monsters and talking with the gods would be so so much fun. Plus I love Percy and Annabeth and Grover and want them to be my friends. If I could be a part of the Heroes of Olympus series as well (I’d be Greek), that would be so cool, because I also love all the Roman ones.
I would not want to be transported into Panem from The Hunger Games. The more I think about what the world is like, the more I am disgusted by it. Don’t get me wrong, I love the books, but turning innocent kids into murderers in a big killing arena? I’ll pass on being a part of that. Also, I just read The Handmaid’s Tale for school and I can easily say I would not like to be a part of that world.
Jackie @ Too Much of a Book Nerd‘s Question: Which book (or series) have you reread the most?
This was a hard one, because I reread books often but Goodreads just added the reread function, which is where I keep track of all the books I’ve read. I think it is the Pushing the Limits series by Katie McGarry. She just keeps adding more and more books by bringing in more and more characters, and I love each and every one. The relationships are all super cute, and I love how none of the characters are perfect. They all have problems, but they all are strong and grow from their life experiences. It brought me some more awareness into the struggles inner city kids face, because I’m pretty sheltered in my suburb.
And that’s it! Thanks so much to everyone who gave me a question, and I had a ton of fun answering them all! Thanks again for continuing to follow me and I hope you enjoyed 🙂
