How old were you when you first became interested in reading books?

I first became interested in reading books when I learned how to read. I was 3 years old and books opened a whole new world to me. I loved that I was able to “transport” into the book and
live as the main character.

What is your most favorite book? Why?

Umm… I don’t really have a favorite book, I have many.

What is your favorite Series? Why?

Umm… again I don’t really have a favorite series I have many. Some of my favorite series are Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, Evernight by Claudia Gray, Fearless FBI by Francine Pascal, The Morganville Vampire series by Rachel Caine, The House of Night series by P.C & Kristin Cast, The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith, Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, and The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare.

Who is you favorite author? Why?

I don’t have a favorite author, I have many. I just can’t choose one. Ok some of my favorite authors are Meg Cabot, Rachel Caine, Richelle Mead, Cassandra Clare, Francine Pascal, Jane Austen, John Green, Scott Westerfeld, Tina Ferraro, and many more.

What is you favorite genre of books? Why?

Well, I have to favorite genres, fiction and urban fantasy.

How many books, in average, do you read a week?

I can read up to 20 books a week. It depends on how many books I get from the library. The average is 15 books.

Describe your favorite place to sit down and read a great book?

My favorite place to sit down and read a book is on my black mushroom chair by my window. I like to open up the blinds and let the sun through. My room is on the second floor so I have a pretty good view.

What bookstore do you go to the most?

I don’t really buy books because I’m always broke but when I do buy books I like to go to Half Price books or Barnes and Noble.

Which character (in any book) are you most like? Why?

Hmm… I think I’m more like… wow this is hard, I would say I’m more like Nicolette from Top Ten Uses of an Unworn Prom Dress. We’re both headstrong, funny, and would do anything to help our families. We are also very loyal to our friends, even if they sometimes don’t deserve it.

If you could bring only one book with you to a deserted island, what would you choose? Why?

Oh, this isn’t fair. Can’t I just bring all my books? I can’t choose one.

Nice interview Kyle. Love this idea. :)
It is rather hard to pick a favorite book and author...I must agree.

WOOW...I knew you read a ton, but that's insane! I wish I could read that fast. :)

Great interview!! WOW thats a bunch of books in one week. I wish I could sit and read that much in a week. It really is hard to pick fav. books and authors.

Carol said...

Thanks for interviewing me!
It looks great!

Breanna said...

Holy crap goodness. How can you read up to 20 books in a week Carol? That's insanity! I can read maybe 3 or 4 at the most. And they would have to be relatively short books, lol. But if I didn't have my daughters I might be able to read 10 a week, but that's a big might, lol.

Those are some of my favorite authors too, especially Meg Cabot. I can't believe she's written as many books as she has. That seems just insane to me.

Awww, your just like me, a reader really early. My parents have video tapes of me at 3 or 4 reading and making up stories to them. I can't decide who's my favorite author out there. There's so many good ones! Great interview!

Kyle said...

I was really glad i got to interview you Carol, it was fun! and I agree with you on wanting to take all of your books on the island, that would be a hard choice for me too.

Judi said...

That was a great interview Kyle, and Carole, thanks for sharing. :) It's always great to get to know a bit about other book-a-holics.

The Readers' Sanctuary said...

Oh, wow. Amazing interview! Thanks for sharing. I'm glad I got to learn a little more about Carol. :) It's really cool. We have lots of stuff in common. Read on!! It's a portal to another world. Be anyone you want to be! :)
