Hello readers, bloggers, authors, and generally awesome people (who happen to love books!) and welcome to This Or That! This Or That is a feature posted every week and it works like this: each person is asked a series of This Or That/Would You Rather-type questions, some serious and some funny, and by doing so we get to learn just a bit more about our favorite bookish people! This feature is currently scheduled through April 2013 but if you would still be interested in signing up, please check out this post and fill out the form!
I am beyond thrilled to have the absolutely Ah-Mazing Jess on the blog today! Jess was one of the very first blogs I remember stalking. I try not to be creepy (sometimes it’s a challenge but I think I manage), I mostly just look at her book reviews, look those books up on Goodreads, and then purchase because she has AWESOME taste in books (especially when it comes to contemporary!). Jess also has a deep love for the boys of Sarah Dessen (much like myself) & a simply amazing list of music recommendations. So really, it only seems natural that I stalk her blog, right? Well without further ado, let’s meet Jess!
Do you prefer for the concerts you attend to be in small clubs or large venues?
Small Clubs – So much more personal.
Dessert time: Which one do you go for, cookies or cupcakes?
Cupcakes – Yum!
Books that are laugh-out-loud funny or ones that give you deep, intense thoughts?
Deep, intense thoughts.
Let’s talk boys: jocks or nerds?
Nerds – With glasses, please!!
Are you one to sing along or dance along?
Dance along while singing along.
Are you a cat person or a dog person?
Dog person – A very recent one at that!
A year without books or a year without your favorite food?
Books…girl’s gotta eat…to read books the following year!
Would you rather read outside in the sun or inside all snuggled up with a book?
Inside, snuggled up, for sure!
Which ones do you like more: full albums or mixed CD’s?
Are you a nook girl or a kindle girl?
Kindle – But I do also own a Nook.
Cover talk: Do you like people on the covers or a design?
People – I like to picture them while I read and models help with that.
Would you rather be turned into a werewolf or a vampire?
Oooh, hard one! Vampire – I’m not outdoorsy.
Do you listen to one specific type of music or mixed genres?
Mixed – especially since I’m Hispanic. I listen to English and Spanish music in different genres.
I know you are a Contemporary fan-girl much like myself but do you prefer Contemporary romance or Contemporary drama?
Contemporary Romance all the way!!
Do you prefer paperback or hardcover books?
Do you like your favorite books turned into movies or TV shows?
TV Shows – Or miniseries. Sometimes 2 hours isn’t enough time to capture a book.
When it comes to your favorite authors do you fan-girl/guy over them or do you quietly sit back and stalk them (non-creepily of course!)?
Sit back, for sure! I am so shy around them!!
If you HAD to choose would you pick music or books?
AAAAH! What are you doing to me!! I’ll have to go with Books.
Would you rather spend a whole week with your FAVORITE fictional boyfriend or spend a whole day with ALL of your fictional boyfriends?
Week with my Favorite. – Then maybe he’ll fall in love with me and stick around longer!
Team bad boy or team boy next door?
Ooooh! Team Bad Boy ;)
What did I tell you, Ah-Mazing, right??? Jess, I am so feeling you on the week with your all-time fictional boy crush. If I can just convince my crush that nerdiness and an obsessive love of cute cats is in fact endearing and not totally strange, then I’ll be set. And I also love people on my covers! Being able to see what the character looks like in the book helps me while I’m reading.
A HUGE thank you to Jess for agreeing to participate this week. I love her answers almost as much as I adore her and her blog!
