Rules: Answer 11 questions from your nominee (I took the questions from both my nominees and answered half of them. Well, okay, eight of them - but who's counting?), tag 11 bloggers, and ask them 11 new questions. Simple ;).
What's a book you were looking forward to so much you were scared to read it, for fear it wouldn't live up to your expectations?
Well, it was Heartless (Marissa Meyer) but I read it a few days ago and OH MY did it surpass every one of my expectations. Literally, I thought it was a book that couldn't be done - I mean, how do you take a sweet, darling girl and show how she turns into the Queen of Hearts? - but Marissa Meyer did it so well. I was astounded. Even if I did want to throw the book at the wall multiple (probably around 367) times, I enjoyed it very, very much.
What Question Would You Like To Ask One Of Your Favorite Authors?
I would like to ask Marissa Meyer how she pulled off Heartless. The End, that is all. But I would also like to ask J.R.R. Tolkien which of his characters is his favorite (come on, admit it - we all have a favorite character that we've written), or ask Nadine Brandes how she was able to weave a Christian message into her books so well.
If You Had To Describe Yourself As One Of The Four Seasons, Which Would It Be?
Maybe Spring? I would have said Autumn, but Spring has some storms, and Autumn really doesn't. And Spring has both peppy, bright days that just feel happy, but also quiet, grey days and massive storms. Those are good days for books ;).
Would You Rather Be Trapped In A Lamp, A Tower, Or An Enchanted Sleep?
Not enchanted sleep - that's not interesting at all, and I'd be terribly disoriented when I woke up. A lamp seems a little cramped ... I'd probably pick a tower, though honestly I would try not to get myself trapped in the first place xD.
If You Could Learn Any Instrument Instantly, Which Would You Chose?
Probably violin, mostly because my younger sister, Skylar, can play with the best of them, and it would be ever so much fun to play duets with her! I used to have a rented violin (I only had it for about two weeks, because it was actually a rented violin that Skylar wasn't using after she got her own, and I didn't feel like renting it again. Silly me), and we would play Zelda duets together. It was the best.
What Book/Series Would You Love To Be Made Into A TV Show/Movie?
Ooh, dear me. Can I say all of the books that I've ever loved? No? Well then. Probably ... the Lunar Chronicles would be awesome, and so would Heartless (though I'm pretty sure I would end up shrieking in the middle of the movie and refusing to watch the rest). Entwined and Illusionarium would be cool too, albeit a little creepy. And a LEGIT Inheritance Cycle (Eragon isn't even worth watching, compared to the books) movie series would be cool. And I would die to see A Branch Of Silver, A Branch Of Gold in visual form.
I'll just keep going on and on until someone stops me.
What Villain From A Book Or Movie Would You Most Love To See Transformed Into A Good Guy?
Cath from Heartless - though, she technically wasn't a villain until the end of the book *sobs in the corner for the girl that was Cath*.
What Is The Most Shocking Plot Twist You've Ever Read In A Book? (you don't have to say what it is, just what book it's from)
That's tough, seeing as I've read a ton of books with amazing plot twists. But one that I've been thinking about lately is Here, There Be Dragons (mostly because I've been trying to convince my sister to read it) because THAT LAST PAGE. Epicness. I was thrilled.
