My Answers:

  • Who will be your soulmate?

 

Jace Herondale from The Mortal Instruments series. I don’t even need to think twice! I just wouldn’t like to have Clary’s life… the boyfriend though, I would not hesitate! He has the exact type of humor and sarcasm that I love and don’t get me started on his looks… I always imagine him looking like a teenage Alex Pettyfer, my number one crush since I was 12.

  • How will you two meet?

 

We will bump in to each other at the most famous bookstore in my city, which is an attraction to a lot of turist due to its beauty. But we would meet at a time of the day where there were mostly locals there and the environment was quiet and calm.

  • Where will you live?

 

Alicante. But we would each travel everyday to his city and mine for work and appointments and then go back home at the end of the day to be together.

  • What job will he have?

 

I would be a Computer Engineer as I’m supposed to be “in real life” and he’d be a sculptor. He would travel a lot looking for different woods and metals. You could see the passion on his work and how he always stayed up late to perfect it. In those nights I would bring him a cup of hot chocolate. (I don’t understand anything about sculpture so please ignore me if I’m saying stupid things!) Sometimes he would go hunting demons with Alec and Izzy.

  • Fill the gaps (how any kids will you have? how will you die? etc)

We would have three kids, two girls and one boy. We would live a long happy life, travel a lot, teach our kids archery, go on long walks. And we would die on sunny and warm days (plural because it’s a day for each of us), surrownded by our family and feeling satisfied with the life we lead.

My Answers:

  • A popular book or series that you didn’t like

stephanie-perkins-covers-new

Anna and the French Kiss. Not that I didn’t like it, I just certainly didn’t love it as much as I was expecting to and definitely thought it was overhyped… Sorryandpleasedon’tmurderme!!

  • A popular book that everyone hates but you love

9781908435590maze-runner-correr-ou-morrerthe-scorch-trials91hh1nrsfnl

Maze Runner. This series got some hate on Booktube but I think most people agreed that this is something you either hate or love, there’s little in between here… And I loved it! Especially The Kill Order, I mean “OMGOMGOMG”!

  • A love triangle where your ship did not sail

delete

The Casquette Girls. A part of me really wanted Nicco and Adele to end up toguether… but who knows? There’s still a second book that should come out sometime this year!

  • A popular genre that you hardly reach for

percy

Percy Jackson. Middle Grade stuff, the only exception being Harry Potter and Percy Jackson because yes.

  • A beloved character you didn’t like

I don’t have one! #sorrynotsorry hahaha

  • A popular author you can’t get into

Stephenie Perkins… I mildly enjoyed Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door but they were nothing close to what I was expecting! I guess there was too much hype going around and I got kind of carried away…

  • A popular book series you have no interest in reading

tumblr_o013x6txdy1uqhvglo1_1280

I know some people felt “nhe” towards this series and other loved it but honestly I don’t see myself reading Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen anytime soon. I just thing it will be a lot like other series I already read and I’m a bit bored of…

  • An adaptation you like better than the book

130509_bb_gatsbypostercover-crop-article568-large

The Great Gatsby. This is literally the only movie I enjoyed way more than the book, literally!

My Answers:

  • Most Kick-Butt Heroine

Considering I read both Throne of Glass and The Hunger Games this year I have to say THIS IS REALLY REALLY HARD! And I can’t do it. And I’m going to randomly pick one: Celaena Sardothien from the Throne of Glass Series.

  • Most Intelligent Heroine

Tessa Grey from The Infernal Devices Trilogy.

  • “Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer” – Name a character that overcomes major obstacles and learns to believe in themselves.

Geral Faust from Reality Boy. It was an astounding evolution to read about!

  • Most Swoony-worth male character

Jace Herondale from The Mortal Instruments Series, I mean please.

  • Best political drama

The Hunger Games Trilogy. (It fits in the political drama category, right right?)

  • Best star-crossed lovers

Oh My God Rose and Dimitri from the Vampire Academy Series! They can’t get a break, what breaks is my heart, for them…

  • Best surprise (twist, cliff hanger, or ending)

Shadow Kiss‘s ending. I’m not going to spoil anyone but seriously, I just couldn’t believe it when I read it. Why Richelleeeeee?

  • Best fairy tale retelling

I didn’t read any, sorry guys, no nominates!

  • Best “didn’t expect to like it, but loved it” book

Smart Girl by Rachel Hollis, wihtout a doubt a surprise. (Read my review here if you’re interested in finding out more about this book and my reading experience).

  • Best side-kick or best friend character

Maybe the one I’m currently reading because I’m loving her so much: Nicole from Thicker Than Water.

  • Best debut author book

Allen Wolf, who wrote Hooked this year. (Read my review here if you’re interested in finding out more).

  • Best “little known” book

Maybe The Felix Chronicles by R. T. Lowe… It was both a pleasant surprise and a very enjoyable read, I’m really looking forward for the second book! (Read my review of the first book here if you’re interested).

  • Best series, overall

If it’s a series I have to have finished then The Hunger Games Trilogy, if not then the Throne of Glass Series !

  • Best Book, overall

(Both these last points are reall hard!) Hummm, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.
