Jessica~We Are All Heathens~ (puppyluvr) | 149 comments Fiction and fantasy mostly. Dystopias...YA, romance

Mostly. Usually with the cover you can tell if it's a good book. I do read the summary though.

In a month? It really depends. Sometimes only 4 or so, sometimes like 10 (usually about 120 every year) I'm a huge reader!!

A mix if both

Harry Potter, Shatter Me series, The Host, Hunger Games, Divergent, House of Night series, The 5th Wave, Flowers in the Attic, Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus, Fahrenheit 451, Matched...there's too many!

Erin Hunter, Rick Riordan, Veronica Roth, Melissa Meyers, whoever wrote Shatter Me :P, Suzanne Collins

Um...I don't think any

Jo-Jo | 12 comments What is/are your favorite genre(s)?

Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Sci-fi, Romance, Historical Romance, Horror...well, honestly, I will read just about anything but I tend to not read non-fiction as much as fiction...even though I DO enjoy some memoirs and true-crime books. =)

Do you choose to read a book depending on its cover?

Sometimes, but content is more important to me

How many books do you read in a month (average)?

It used to be only 2 to 4...I have recently become addicted to challenges and it has upped my pace...so as of now I would say I read between 6-10 books or more each month.

Happily Ever After (HEA)/Tragic endings?

Love HEAs, and I must admit I even love some tragic endings too. I can find myself bawling my eyes out saying "Noooooo!!! Why did the author do that!?!" but loving the fact that the writing evoked such strong emotion from me.

What makes a book really special for you?

Originality, flavor... honestly though, it's one of those things that's nearly impossible to define.

Favorite books?

Enchanted (Woodcutter Sisters #1) by Alethea Kontis One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress, #2) by Jeaniene Frost The Giver (The Giver, #1) by Lois Lowry One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, #1) by Janet Evanovich There are so many more, it's an impossible task to name them all.

Favorite Authors?

Janet EvanovichJeaniene FrostIlona AndrewsMichele BardsleyKaren ChanceBertrice Small Once again, this is an impossible feat...I have thousands!

Books that had a huge impact on your life?
The one that really stands out is Charlotte's Web by E.B. White ...my mom read it to me as a bedtime story when I was just a little girl and it helped shape and blossom my love for reading...definitely a huge impact. I wouldn't want to imagine my life without books and reading, it's such a big part of my life!!!
