1. Book next to your bed right now: Incarceron by Catherine Fisher. It’s been “waiting in the wings” all week but because of Midterms of Death and Sinus Infection of Death, I haven’t been able to start it
2. Favorite series: Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander. Started those books as a 10-year old, so in addition to just being a dadgum awesome series, there’s the nostalgia factor, too
3. Favorite book: You are Special by Max Lucado and Skellig by David Almond
4. The one book you would have with you if stranded on a desert island: This may sound ultra-cheesy, but I have to go with the Bible. That seems like a good thing to have in a situation like that…
5. Book/series you would take with you on a long flight: Oh, the Percy Jackson series!
6. Worst book you were made to read in school: Ohh gosh, it would be a tie between Wuthering Heights and The Great Gatsby. It doesn’t matter to me if a book is “classic” or not – if I don’t like the characters, I won’t be engaged in the plot and therefore will not likely care what goes on in the story
7. Book that everyone should be made to read in school: To Kill a Mockingbird, and from what I understand, a lot of people are made to read this! Ohh, and The Divine Comedy by Dante.
8. Book that everyone should read, period: You are Special by Max Lucado. Seriously, everybody! This book is like vitamins for your self-esteem!
9. Favorite character: Percy Jackson. That kid is one awesome little demigod. And in the entirely of a 5-book series, never once is he “boring”. Way to go, Rick Riordan!
10. Best villain: Hmm, of all time? I’ll have to be Miss Nerdy Nerdenstein and say Lucifer from Paradise Lost. Otherwise, Sauron from Lord of the Rings
11. Favorite concept series: T.A. Barron’s Great Tree of Avalon, in which the whole world is made up of one gigantic tree and all its parts: roots, bark, branches, leaves, etc. Once you wrap your mind around that, it’s pretty awesome!
12. Favorite invented world: I’ll say the Redwall world by Brian Jacques because it’s high fantasy with an all-animal cast! Seriously, there’s nothing cooler than sword-wielding MICE!
13. Most beautifully written book: JRR Tolkien has an amazing way with prose, and so does Lloyd Alexander (Chronicles of Prydain)
14. Funniest book/series: Off the top of my head, I’ll have to say the Percy Jackson series…In fact, most of the quotes on my goodreads page are made up of funny quips from those books!
So there you go! I love questionnaires like this because they offer an insight into reading experiences. If you decide to do this questionnaire, I’d love to read your answers and get a glimpse of your reading preferences!
