Maddie (maddisonbruce) | 3687 comments 1. What country/state do you currently live in?
New Zealand :D Love it. First country to see the sun every morning, and home to LOTR, Hobbit and Narnia. Basically I come from the future :p

2. What book are you reading right now?
Struggling through Heir of Fire, and reading A Court of Thorns and Roses which I'm really enjoying. About HoF, I know most of you would probably gasp at that, but I started it months ago, slowly, and then had to put it down for the WOBBLE challenge over on NBRC, and just haven't wanted to pick it up since. And now I have the chance to I don't have the motivation. The font size is terrible.

3. What was the last book you read?
The Secret Circle #5: The Hunt by LJ Smith/Aubrey Clark

4. What is your favorite genre or series of books?
Here comes the list:
Cherub by Robert Muchamore
The Wardstone Chronicles/The Last Apprentice by Joseph Delaney
Anything by Colleen Hoover
Gone by Michael Grant
The Edge Chronicles by Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell

5. Besides reading, what are your hobbies?
Uhhhh procrastinating on GR :p Hanging out with my boyfriend. And recently, I've been bowling quite a bit which is good fun.

6. What is your favorite holiday?
Uhhhh summer holidays? :p So Christmas time/New Years for me. My school year's opposite to most of you guys, and our school year goes from February-November. But now I'm at uni, just got 2 semesters as usual, with our 3 month break from November/December - February/March

7. What is your favorite activity that isn’t a hobby and doesn’t involve books?
Boyfriend. 'Nuff said.

8. What is your favorite movie and/or song?
Movie: Pirates of the Caribbean/Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings
Song: Yeah 3x by Chris Brown. I don't know why this one just pulls me in so much, seeing as the words are stupid, but I just love it haha.

9. What challenge or type of challenge is your favorite to participate in?
Uhhh looooong ones that actually challenge me :p Like timed challenges where you need to read specific books. And of course MONOPOLY!

10. Name a country you would like to visit, and why.
Alaska because Northern Lights and England because history and accent <3

11. What was the first book that you remember reading/being read?
Wow good question. Uhhhh some Dr Seuss one :p

12. What is your dream job?
Uhhhh something with animals/music, but realistically in an office doing accounting :p That's fine too. Good pay :D

13. What is the furthest place you have traveled to?
America

14. What was the last book you recommended to someone?
The BFG to my boyfriend <3

15. If you could bring a fictional character to life, who would it be?
Oh my gosh Maxon Schreave <3

16. If you were given $20 to spend in a bookstore, what would you buy?
Books.....? Something YA for sure.

17. If you could time travel, would you go to the past or the future?
Definitely past. Those big dresses! :o And the simplicity of life.

18. What is your favorite dessert?
Anything chocolate. Brownie, cake, mousse, custard. Anything rich and chocolatey.

19. What was the last book that made you laugh?
See this is a really hard question. I've recently had to read funny books for some of my 17-20 Monopoly games I'm participating in (:p) and I had a hard time. So I actually can't remember. Sad, right?

20. What's your preferred method of reading? i.e. paperback, e-reader, audio, etc.
Paperback for sure. I mean, I get the usefulness of ebook, but I don't like not being able to see how much I've read, and how much I have left to go. But then ebook is good when it comes to small font stuff. And I tried listening to an audiobook once, but I couldn't do it. Couldn't concentrate.

BONUS:
Tell us three things about yourself not already mentioned here.
- Uhhhhhhh I have a really fat fluffy Cavalier King Charles Cocker Spaniel dog :p
- I play POKEMON GO :D :D :D (whispers *which I'm totally not obsessed with or anything*)
- I'm 18 nearly 19.
