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 all sorts of excited to have the absolutely lovely (and totally super awesome) Sarah on the blog today! Now why is Sarah awesome you may ask? Well not only because she thinks Lola, my kitten, is totally adorable (although she does mention this by the way but that is not the ONLY reason) but because her blog rocks, her answers were so full of epicness, and she also happens to be completely sweet. So without further ado, let’s meet Sarah!
About The Blogger: I am a totally random, sarcastic ball of spaz. It’s amazing that I can actually sit down long enough to read books, let alone read as many of them as I do. *Busts out random dance move*. I started blogging because I love to read, but the people around me don’t really read the same things I do and I wanted a place to talk about the books I loved. I read mostly YA books, because I’m a kid at heart and I just can’t help myself. They have some of the most creative and interesting stories out there. I’m a big sucker for Contemporaries. What can I say, I LOVE love stories :0)
Books that are laugh-out-loud funny or ones that give you deep, intense thoughts?
I like thinking as much as the next girl, but I definitely prefer a book that can make me laugh out loud.
Would you rather be turned into a werewolf or a vampire?
Werewolf. Sure they are hairy, but at least they are warm-blooded.
Are you a nook girl or a kindle girl?
Nook girl through and through!
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!)?
I fan-girl and make a fool of myself as much as possible. I’ve never been the shy girl who sits in the corner, so quietly (non-creepily) stalking doesn’t really work for me.
A year without books or a year without your favorite food?
No brainer! A year without my favorite food, or course. There are plenty of other foods in the world, but a year without reading is unfathomable.
Are you one to sing along or dance along?
This one I’ve got to break the rules on a little. I absolutely always sing and dance. No matter where I am, and often no matter what I’m doing. You can often find me singing and dancing down the aisles of the local Best Buy and Books-a-Million.
Would you rather read outside in the sun or inside all snuggled up with a book?
I always try reading outside in the sun, but I get distracted by all that goes on outdoors. So I definitely prefer reading all snuggled up inside.
I know you are a Contemporary fan-girl much like myself but do you prefer Contemporary romance or Contemporary drama?
Definitely Contemporary romance. I love swoony smooches and I’m a sucker for the happily ever after.
Do you listen to one specific type of music or mixed genres?
I listen to a little bit of a lot of things. Just when I think I’ve pinned down a specific type of music I like most, I find a new favorite song in a different genre.
Do you prefer “real” books or e-books?
“Real” books. My sagging, groaning bookshelves will be happy to agree with me on this one.
Do you like your favorite books turned into movies or TV shows?
TV shows, because I only have to wait a week for the next installment, instead of a year or more. Plus they last longer (usually) :0)
Dessert time: Which one do you go for, cookies or cupcakes?
Cupcakes! Buttercream frosting makes my world go round.
Breakfast for dinner or dinner for breakfast?
Dinner for breakfast. I quite enjoy eating leftovers at breakfast time.
Would you rather spend a whole week with your FAVORITE fictional boyfriend or spend a whole day with ALL of your fictional boyfriends?
Impossible question! Hmm…I think I’ll go with a week with my favorite fictional boyfriend (who happens to be Adam Wilde from IF I STAY/WHERE SHE WENT), and that would be one EPIC week :0)
Do you keep your books on bookshelves or random spots throughout the house?
I keep my books on random spots throughout my bookshelves. Haha. More books than shelves is conducive to piles.
Which do you enjoy more: recorded music or live music?
Live music, without a doubt. Many of my favorite memories are from the various concerts I have been lucky enough to attend.
Do you like your books to be a part of a series or stand alone?
I’m fonder of standalone books. I like getting a whole story between the covers. Sometimes I feel like authors use a series to drag a story out much farther than they need to go.
Are you a cat person or a dog person?
Cat person! I have two, Chuck Norris and Dexter, they are the loves of my life and the banes of my existence. (They are black and white like your Lola, who is completely adorbs, by the way :0) )
Team bad boy or team boy next door?
I’m a sucker for a boy next door. Of course, if the boy next door spends time hanging around his motorcycle, I won’t be angry :0)
What do you prefer for Valentine’s Day: a box of chocolates or a bouquet of roses?
Definitely flowers over chocolates. I love all of the oddball colors they have for roses these days.
So now you know what I mean! Answers full of epicness! I am IN LOVE with the names of your cats and I am also a HUGE cupcake fan…as in I could eat them for every meal of every day for the rest of my life. A big THANK YOU to Sarah for agreeing to participate in this week’s This Or That. I had so much fun, and your answers proved to be incredibly entertaining (and also quite true with me as well. Boys next door that like hanging out on their motorcycles…be still my heart!)
