11 questions from Patricia

1. When did you become an avid reader?
I became an avid reader about mid-year last year. Although I started collecting books when I was on my first year high school, last year has been a memorable year for me as a reader.
2. What are you currently reading and how are you liking it so far?
Luckiest Girl Alive, it reminds me of Gone Girl, a novel/movie that I loved to bits, so I'm loving it so far and Paris Time Capsule, this book reminds me of the movie Letters to Juliet, a movie that I don't like; not really, so that's a so-so.
3. Top 3 overhyped books (i.e. the books everyone loves but you didn't like that much)?
The Selection, sorry people, I only liked the last installment, The One. I also didn't like The Maze Runner and Paper Towns that much.
4. Most anticipated book release for 2015?
I have so many books that I am anticipating this year but here are some: Jenny Han's P.S. I Still Love You, David Levithan's Another Day, Andrew Smith's Stand Off, Mary E. Pearson's The Heart of Betrayal, William Ritter's Beastly Bones. Notice somethings? All the titles I've listed are second installments. 
5. What Hogwarts house do you belong in, or if you're not signed up to Pottermore, what house do you think you belong in?
I belong in Ravensclaw.
6. A character you love to hate?
Actually, there are a lot of characters that I love to hate. Most of them are girls. Annoying girls.
7. Your OTP?
Me and my favorite male characters.
8. Your guilty pleasure read?
Sophie Kinsella's I've Got Your Number. That novel is hilarious. Like off Richter scale.
9. A character everyone loves but you despise?
Celaena Sardothien from Throne of Glass. Despite everyone falling over her feet, I don't like her. She's annoying and immature. Sorry Throne of Glass fanatics.
10. Your favourite book quote?
Shatter Me's "I spent my life folded between the pages of books. In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction."
11. A book you are willing to read, or have read, over and over and over again?
I'm not in a habit of re-reading books but I've read Shatter Me trilogy many times.
