What do you do when you are not reading?
I do a lot of things when I'm not reading actually. Most of what I'm doing consists of taking care of my 18-month-old identical twin girls or working at the local movie theater.

How old were you when you first became interested in reading books?
I'm told that I liked reading when I was a baby which makes sense because my girls love to look at books. So I guess I'm saying I became interested in with books when I was probably a year or so old. I remember liking books when I was older too, around 5-10 years old. I lost some interest after that. But about two years ago I picked up the reading bug again. Yeah, that's a wordy answer to a simple question, lol.

What is your most favorite book? Why?
Totally hard question. I've read so many great books that it's hard to choose which one is my favorite. I think I'll have to go with Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult. It was absolutely amazing. I remember I was enthralled in the storyline so much that even when my boyfriend came over I couldn't put it down. And I rarely got to see him so I know I loved that book. I want to read it again now, lol.

What is your favorite Series? Why?
I think my favorite series would have to be The Mediator series by Meg Cabot. I read it two years ago I think. I just remember being so in love with the characters and the story line. It was just so amazing. I remember being pretty much breathless the whole time I was reading the last book in the series. I was so sad when it ended but happy that I had just finished an incredibly amazing series that I'll always remember.

Who is you favorite author? Why?
That's a really hard question. I know everyone says that but that's because it's true. With all the different authors out there it's so incredibly hard to choose. But I think I have to go with Meg Cabot. I've read most every single one of her books and have loved them all. They're all such fun reads

What is you favorite genre of books? Why?
I guess I'd either have to say Vampire books (that counts as a genre, right? lol) or just basic Contemporary. Vampires because they're always so full of forbidden love and action. I love all the excitement. And Contemporary because I like reading about basic almost everyday things. I just love reading all the different stories that authors can come up with. I find it so amazing how many books there are in this world.
How many books, in average, do you read a week?
Well it varies because I'm a mom to twins and all. For a while last month I was reading maybe 2 to 3 books a week. But now it's 1 book a week if I'm lucky because I have a job now (at my local AMC theater) that requires me to work at night a lot which is when I get most of my reading done. So that sucks but I'm definitely liking my new job. So that makes up for it.

Describe your favorite place to sit down and read a great book?
I like sitting on the purple couch in the living room at my mom's house where I'm living right now. It's pretty comfy and it's just a nice spot to sit and read when I actually have a few minutes to myself. I also love sitting outside in the backyard on my mom's lawn swing. It's definitely really comfy to sit out there when it's warm, especially when I can actually get the swing to recline like it's supposed to.

What bookstore do you go to the most?
I go to Borders and Half Priced Books. Basically because they're the only two bookstores that are even remotely close to me. There aren't a whole lot of independent bookstores around Tacoma which is really sad. But I like Half Priced Books and Borders. They have books, what's not to like? Although I'm starting to just order off of Amazon more because it's getting harder to find the books that I want at the stores.
Which character (in any book) are you most like? Why?
Hmm tough question. Umm I think I'm a lot like Scarlett in Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen. No I've never had a boyfriend die in a motorcycle accident and then find out I'm having his baby. But I did end up knocked up when I was 18 and my girls' father is as good as dead to me. But like Scarlett I really needed a friend to rely on during the past 2 or so years when my life completely changed. Just most everything about Scarlett seems like me. At least what I can remember anyway, (the last time I read Someone Like You was like 3 years ago) which isn't much. I just feel like that out of all the books that I've read I'm the most like Scarlett.

If you could bring only one book with you to a deserted island, what would you choose? Why?
I'd probably have to say Twilight by Stephenie Meyer because well it's Twilight, lol. I've only read it once. But I know I'll be able to read it over and over again. It's just so great. And it's also a great length. I definitely like longer books. Especially when they're amazing like Twilight is.
