Erika’s Questions

1) If you’re not enjoying a book do you give up or struggle through it?

I am stubborn so I am always determined to finish a book. I feel I can’t truly give my opinion on it if I didn’t even complete it.

2) Of the books you were required to read for school, which was your favorite?

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. When you are in high school and still trying to figure out who you are, this was a perfect book to connect to.

3) If you could re-write an ending of a book that you have read which one would it be and why? (If you’re satisfied with all the endings then my question would be which one was your favorite ending of a book/series?)

Janie Face to Face by Caroline B. Cooney. There was no confrontation whatsoever between Janie and her kidnapper and for a popular series that should have occurred.

4) Do you sometimes imagine yourself as a character in any books that you read? If so, which ones?

Pride and Prejudice, Me Before You, most of Meg Cabot books.

5) What is the most expensive book that you bought? The cheapest?

I bought a hardcover book for $40 but I don’t remember the title. The cheapest are books I bought for a penny over Amazon.

6) If you could mix characters from any books and build the perfect story, who would you pick?

All of Austen’s characters. Don’t you think it’s time they mingle together?

7) Name a book/series that is difficult to get into; however, seems to have huge fanbase/hardcore fans?

The Hunger Games. I just really don’t get it.

8)Which book(s) has made an impact in your life?

Pride and Prejudice. You can read about it in my post here.

9) Though this can be rare, which movie adaptation in your opinion is actually better/or is as equally great as the book?

The 1995 BBC version of Pride and Prejudice.

10) How often do you read out of your “comfort zone”?

Not that much but I do try to read at least 4 non-fiction books a year

11) You are having literary tea party and you are allowed 7 guests, who do you invite? (characters, authors…) What would happen at your literary party? (if you can come up with a scenario anyways…)

Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, JK Rowling, Meg Cabot, Jojo Moyes, Emily Giffin, and Kate Morton…talking about books what else?
