Questions from Kristen:

Tell me an interesting fact about yourself.

An interesting fact about me is that when I was in 4th grade, I broke both of my arms. At different times. And if you've been in any twitter chats with me where this question was asked, you will probably already know most of this.

I broke both bones in my right wrist when I fell rollerblading. I spent two hours in the emergency room before I got x-rays because there was a car accident that day and all the x-ray technicians were busy. The nurse gave me a sucker I couldn't eat before surgery. It was blue which is always the best flavor, unless it's cotton candy. And my grandma lost it and I never got to have. Then my doctor got there and yelled at everyone for not bringing more x-ray technicians in. Then my arm healed wrong and I had to have it rebroken. And when they put the IV in my arm, they missed the vein and pumped my arm full of water. That wrist is still a bit crooked to this day.

Then after that mess healed, I was leaning back on a chair and I leaned too far and it fell. And I got a greenstick fracture in my left forearm. So the bone bent and cracked, but didn't break. So since it wasn't broken, we assumed it was sprained and I spent all night with a broken arm and my dad took me to the hospital the next day. Let me tell you, it hurt way worse than the first time. My 12-year-old self cried at the hospital and my nurse was an A-hole and she told me to suck it up and quit crying because I was a big girl. Then instead of taking what, 15 minutes (I don't remember how long it took)? to put a cast on me, they wrapped it and sent me somewhere else in town to have them put a cast on me.

Bottom line kids, don't put your arms out to catch yourself when you fall. Or you will surely understand my pain.

If you could have dinner with one author, who would it be?

It would be Alexandra Bracken. All the way. She's my favorite, so there's really no contest there.

Would you go back in time and change a certain event? Why?

I don't know if I would go back and change anything. It would be just my luck that whatever I changed would be generally detrimental to the world and it would be all my fault. 

What is your favorite cartoon?

At this point in my life, I don't watch a whole lot of them, but I do like the occasional episode of Family Guy or something. And I loooove me some Sailor Moon.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

I think it would be awesome to be able to control the elements! I think that would be fun.

What is your favorite book to movie adaptation?

I'm going to go ahead and say one of the Harry Potter movies (or all of them).

Are you an early bird or a night owl?

A little bit of both. I hate sleeping in. I like to get up not EARLY, but I don't like sleeping late. And I like to stay up late-ish as well.

What are some of your favorite OTPs?

Liam Stewart and Ruby Daly (The Darkest Minds)
Alex Balashov and Elodie Buchanan (The Forbidden Orchid)

Why did you start blogging?

I started looking at other people's blogs and decided that I wanted one! I wanted some place to talk about books since I don't really know anyone else who reads. But since I started my blog, I have gotten my sister more into reading. I have broken her a few times already.

Do you have any pets?

I have a naughty, floofy black cat named Roo. He was Ruby for about 20 minutes til I brought him to the vet after I got him and they told me that he was actually not a girl.

Name one of your fears.

My car going into the water. I hate driving over bridges or with water on both sides of the road. I don't know why that is something that scares me, but my dad told me that I have always been scared of that. I also find the thought of outer space to be scary.

My Questions:

1. If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?

2. What is one goal you would like to accomplish during your lifetime?

3. What are some of your pet peeves?

4. Which bad habits of others drive you crazy?

5. What's the weirdest dream you ever had?

6. What's your favorite quote?

7. If you could max out your credit card at any store, what store would it be? What would you get?

8. If you could live in any sitcom, which one would it be and why?

9. What's one book that you didn't like, but couldn't stop reading?

10. What's one book that you enjoyed that you didn't think you would like?

11. Name an instance in which hype ruined your reading experience.

I nominate:

I'm just gonna go ahead and nominate whoever wants to do this! I would love to see your answers to my questions!

  1. Oh my gosh, I'm just cringing after reading your stories about how you broke your arms... I'm so sorry that happened to you! The doctors and nurses all sound like incompetent assholes!

    Aside from that ... YAY, I also love Sailor Moon! *high five* ^_^ Awesome post!

    1. Basically they all were incompetent. I am glad I haven't needed medical attention in the town I live in now because I think they're twice as incompetent. I went to the clinic for a tetanus shot and they looked at me like I was asking them to do pushups and I still haven't gotten said shot. I'd probably end up dead if I went there for anything! BUT YEAH SAILOR MOON! ARE YOU SO EXCITED FOR THE FUNKO POPS COMING OUT?!>
