What’s your favorite reading genre?

Fantasy/Sci Fi.  I know they are technically two genres but the lines between them are blurred a little and I have trouble categorizing books into one or the other.

Do you read more fiction or nonfiction?

I almost exclusively read fiction.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

This is a hard question! I don’t know! Probably the interaction with all the amazing book lovers out there! Most of my friends don’t read so its nice to “hang out” with like-minded people 😀

Do you read ARC’s?

I have read a couple.  I don’t actively seek them out, but when the opportunity arises I will!

Do you have any goals for this year?

I kept my reading goal simple this year with 75 books.  Last year it was 100 and that was a bit overwhelming.  My non-book related goal is to plan my wedding. Which I am not looking forward to because I hate planning.

Definitely good!

Night! I am a night owl and I hate mornings with a passion!

What is one item that you have to have with you 24/7 that isn’t your phone?

Pony Tail Holders! I hate it when my hair is down but I have to let it dry before I put it up, so I always keep some on my wrist!

Recommend a book/series that you think I should read?

Oooh this is super hard because everyone has different tastes in reading.  I don’t know what you like so I can’t really make an educated recommendation, but my go-to’s are Pride and Prejudice, The Princess Bride, and Heroine Complex.

Are you happy?

Yes, I think I am happy most of the time.

If you could give everyone one piece of advice what would it be?

Read! (I don’t know if that is a good answer or not haha giving general advice is hard)

Star Wars! (That might be more sci fi than fantasy? but I would love it!)

Jane Austen

Thanks again Misty for tagging me!!

I am not going to tag anyone because I just did the Sunshine Blogger Award and it is very similar.  I love getting tagged and participating in memes and awards but I worry that I will annoy others by tagging them.  I hope you understand!
