Questions from the Nominator:
1. Why do you have a blog?
I have a blog because I love sharing my thoughts about books. It's one of the things that I miss most about college - being in a room with my fellow students and sharing ideas/debating books. It also helps me keep track of all the books I read and find new books to read.

2. Roughly how many books have you read in the past year?
Last year I read 75 books and this year's goal is 80 books. So far I've read 36 books towards this goal. I'm thinking that I might need to increase my target!

3. What/who inspires you the most?
This changes from day to day...my family, my friends, my students, a quote from a book, a song on the radio...

4. How often do you read?
Every day!

5. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Definitely not a morning person! 

6. What's the most recent book you read?
I just finished Never Too Far by Abbi Glines. It's a follow up to Fallen Too Far. Excellent Mature YA series if you are into that genre. Rush is so freaking hot!!

7. What is your favorite book of all time?
Tie between Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

8. What's one book that you hated & why?
The only book that I have never been able to finish is Angela's Ashes. I just couldn't get through it. Your life sucked, I get it! Move on!

9. What's your favorite colour?
Depends on my mood...usually blue, purple or green.

10. Who is your favorite author?
Jane Austen, hands down

11. What's your most embarrassing/best moment?
So many embarrassing moments! I'm a bit of a klutz, so I tend to fall down a lot. As for the best moment...again a lot to choose from...lots of good moments spent with family and friends.
