What's your most inexpensive book? Well, I own a ton of sale or free ebooks, but from physical books it used to be the original UK paperback of Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi (but I gave it to a friend since I owned 4 copies in total which two were/are hardcovers and she really loved the book so I told her to keep it) but now? Hmm.. It may be Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer or Until I Die by Amy Plum.
What author do you have love/hate relationship with? Um, can I say Rainbow Rowell? Because I really can’t think of any. I usually either dislike all of the author’s books or vice versa or in between, but there usually isn’t that much of a mix thing. Anyhow, I didn’t enjoy Eleanor and Park, but I loved Fangirl so it counts, yeah? Ohh! I actually have one! I love JLA’s books, but I hate how she recycles all her characters and their personalities (and jokes). It’s the same story every time, just different title, character names and settings. I still love her books regardless (except for Frigid which I thoroughly disliked).
What book have you devoured over and over again with no shame? KISS THE SKY BY KRISTA AND BECCA RITCHIE. I CONSTANTLY REREAD IT DURING MY LUNCH BREAKS AT WORK THIS SUMMER BECAUSE I JUST WANTED MY DAILY COBALLOWAY LOVE. I HAVE REREAD THE EBOOK FOR AT LEAST 6 TIMES ALREADY AND MY PAPERBACK IS CURRENTLY BEING MARKED (SO MAKE THAT 7. AT THE VERY LEAST.) AND I JUST LOVE MY OTP OF ALL OTPS AND MY FAVORITE CHARACTER AND ALL THE RELATIONSHIPS AND THE COMPLICATED PLOT AND STORYLINES AND THE TWISTS AND EMOTIONS AND THIS SENTENCE IS REALLY LONG AND I’VE WRITTEN IT IN ONE BREATH. *TAKES A DEEP BREATH* OK. I’M GOOD NOW. (IF THIS ISN’T A SIGN THAT I’M TEARY EYED AND NEED FUEL THE FIRE RIGHT NOW THEN IDK WHAT THIS IS OKAY.)
SlothWhich book have you neglected reading due to laziness? I don’t leave books unread because of laziness, I leave them unread because I’m not in the mood or don’t have enough time. But if I could change the question to “not in the mood” then I’d say that Nick, Jas and I were all guilty of this because we were supposed to read Never Fade together but none of us went through with it for different reasons and mine was not being in the right mood for a dystopian novel no matter that this series is one of the most wonderful dystopians and I love it with passion.
PrideWhat book do you most talk about in order to sound like an intellectual reader? Um. Um. UMMMMM. WHAT EVEN IS THIS QUESTION? All books make you sound like an intellectual reader! Readers are intellectual creatures by nature. But I’d say that.. Ok, idk what to say actually. Um. *scratches head* I don’t usually flaunt my reading material around to sound like an intellectual reader, I do it to book push my favorites on people and discuss stuff, but.. Ok, I have no idea what you want or expect me to say, so I’ll just go with Harry Potter because if you don’t know what accio and alohomora mean then I feel sorry for you.
LustWhat attributes do you find attractive in male or female character? If you reallllllly want to know then go ahead and read Kiss the Sky right now, come back and we can discuss. Ok, but since you’re asking nicely then..
Rose Calloway is my inspiration and I want to be her when I finally grow up (because hello! 22 is still too young to be fully grown up). She’s fiery, fiercely loyal, strong, a feminist, never backs down from a fight, she knows her worth, is confident (and I’m crying now because I love this character to another galaxy and back). She’s also protective of her loved ones, brutally honest, and when she feels something? She feels it with her whole heart and soul. There is no half-way for Rose Calloway. She isn’t perfect, because pride (like my fatal flaw) is her biggest downfall, but she’s the fiercest bitch you’ll ever meet. She’s my icon.
Connor Cobalt is just everything and beyond. Like. (Ugh. ‘em bloody tears!) He’s another species of human kind basically. He’s not just smart, he’s intelligent through and through. He’s driven by wanting to be the best, but he doesn’t smash people or destroy them to get there; he just beats them by being better. He says it best in Kiss the Sky:
People hope to touch the sky.
I dream of kissing it.”
So you see? He’s a perfectionist and I’m pretty much the same. I always try to give my best when I really want something and I never back down from a fight that means a lot to me. He’s extremely passionate underneath his poker face and when you truly matter to him? Well, he’ll give you these small pieces of himself that make you crave for more and more and more. I love that he never judges people and is the perfect gentleman in every situation, even when he wants to smash someone’s head in because they’re bullying his friends or making the people he loves uncomfortable. He finds the classy way out and has a solution for every problem. He’s a fixer. He’s a leader and.. I never look at wallflowers tbh. While there’s nothing wrong with wallflowers, in my opinion, there’s something so incredibly hot about confident guys. Though let me make it clear that douches and confident guys are not the same! Connor never treats Rose with nothing but utmost respect and admiration. He reads people well and adjusts himself and his behavior to different situations which I admire since I’m more like Rose who doesn’t know how to hold back or doesn’t tame herself in situations that require a different approach. He’s a smartass and his comments are bound to make you laugh. He has this infuriating yet so lovable grin and I love it when his grin turns into a laugh *thinks back to chapter 11 of Kiss the Sky* or when he insults people with insults that aren’t proper insults, but they’re so funny because some people *eyes Scott* really do deserve those insults and Connor has the funniest way of saying them. Oh, was I supposed to just list a few personality traits or something? Um. Oops. SORRY NOT SORRY. I'm not even close enough to end this but for the sake of your sanity I will. I love my otp and Rose is my queen and Connor is my king and my Coballoway love is limitless and endless and timeless (because that made a whole lot sense in my head). They give me so many feels that I basically look like this whenever I read about them:
(I mean.. I have horrible graphic making skills, but I participated in the Thrive challenge the amazing Sue put together (warning though that Addicted Series Daily contains some spoilery graphics) and managed to come up with these not-horrible graphics for my otp and I think (hope) they give the message of why I love and admire them. You can find one of them here and the other one here.)
ALSO, IF YOU HAVE NOT READ CHAPTER TEN OF KISS THE SKY? *FAINTS* YOU HAVE NOT LIVED YOUR LIFE.
