So here are My answers, and I must say: Sierra, these are really good questions!
What was the first book you reviewed?
Matched by Ally Condie. While I had mixed feeling about this book, it did make me wonder if handwriting will eventually become a dying art just like it did in this story.
What's your favorite movie that is based off a book, i.e. Twilight?
Ooooo! Now you got me. 0_0 I do like Twilight - only the first movie, though (I know, someone will want to stone me). And typically, when I need to remember one film adaptation, nothing comes to mind. But I can tell which ones I'm looking forward to seeing on the big screen in the future: The Hunger Games, Wicked Lovely and, my favourite, City of Bones.
Where do you usually read?
Everywhere, anywhere. But I do love reading in bed. My hubby calls it 'my pit' when I do that.
Paperback/Hardcover or Tablet?
Paperback any day. I'm not very 21st century for a blogger, I know. But you can't have an eBook autographed by its writer and because I work in the computer all the time, reading from a screen makes me think of work.
When did you become a blogger?
Last year, after my creative writing instructor suggested I started a routine of writing a little every day. I though blogging would be a good way to do that.
Favorite thing about blogging?
All the amazing people I have met! I'm now in touch with people all over the world, who I would never have known otherwise. And we all love books so I don't sound like a nerd when I'm going on... and on... and on... and on... about them. ^_^
Less favorite thing about blogging?
The disappointment I feel when life gets in the way and I don't have time to do it. I have withdraw symptoms. It's seriously addictive.
Do you want your future career to have something to do with books? Like publishing or professional reviewer?
Absolutely! I'm an aspiring writer, but I also love editing (specially copy editing) and reviewing so I will most definitely look into a career path in the book world after I finish my degree.
Oh Gosh, there are many! I did look at lots of blogs when I was setting up mine and I still look into and read other blogs. You can find some of them here and here, but I come across new ones almost every day and they are so different that is hard to pick only a handful.
Team Edward or Team Jacob? Or Team Peeta or Team Gale?
I think I'm Team Edward, but only just. And I haven't read The Hunger Games yet, but I reckon, from what I've heard, that I will be Team Gale.
