Where were do you call home?

How long have you been blogging
I've been blogging since last November if I remember correctly.Before my blog was in Greek but I kinda stopped blogging for a while and then decided to start posting stuff again!

What is the name of your favorite book?
My favorite one right now is Dare You To By Katie McGarry.But that of course might change in a couple of weeks.

What did you think about the cover?
I love the cover!One of my favorites!

If you could ask the Author 3 questions what would they be?
If there is going to be another book for Beth and Ryan only!What inspired her to write Dare You To and When she started writing!

What was you most favorite character and why?
Beth of course because she's such a strong and amazing character

If this book was part of a series, would you read the next book?
Of course!

Have you written a book yourself or are you planning to in the future?
I always start writing stories and never finish them.I think I might write a book in the future because I love writing and I have so many things I want to write about some day.

What genres do you review?
Mostly Young Adult,Contemporary and New Adult

What genre is your favorite and why?
Lately I love reading New Adult books and seriously?I don't know why.It's not my all time favorite though.And I might change my mind but for now,I'd say that it's my favorite genre.

If you were shipwrecked on a desert island what 3 books would you want with you?
That's a hard one....Let's see. The Darkest Minds By Alexandra Bracken, The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden By Jessica Sorensen and Scarlet By A.C. Gaughen.

Is there an Author that you would really like to meet?
I'd love to meet Chloe Neill who wrote The Chicagoland Vampires some day.I love the books and it's one of my favorite series.

Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover? and why?
I prefer paperbacks because it's not difficult for me to read them.And it's just that I never liked reading hardbacks.Ebooks are convenient as well but it's just not the same as holding a physical book in your hands.

Where do you prefer to buy your books?
I always order my books from the Book Depository because the bookstores where I live don't sell books in English so I'm forced to order them online.

Have you ever read a book more than once? If so which one(s) have you read the most?
The Study Series By Maria V.Snyder, Mockingjay By Suzanne Collins, Vampire Academy By Richelle Mead & City of Bones By Cassandra Clare.

What book(s) would you love to see on film, and who would you cast as your leading characters?
I'd love to see Splintered By A.G Howard made as a movie because it's such an interesting book!I can't choose people  to play the leading characters because I was never good at that so...I'll have to skip that question.

Is there a particular movie or TV series that you preferred over the book version?
No because I always find the books to be more interesting and informative than movies or TV series.

What book are you currently reading and in what format (ebook/paperback/hardcover)? 
I'm reading two ebooks right now...Let Me Go By L.L. Akers for a blog tour and Fear of Falling By S.L. Jennings.

What book are you about to start reading?
When I finish though I really want to start Reckless Longing By Gina Robinson

What book do you know that you will never read?
Thirteen Reasons Why By Jay Asher.There are more but I own this one...and yes I'm afraid to read it...

Are there any new Authors that have grasped your interest recently and why?
Katja Millay who wrote The Sea of Tranquility.I recently read the book and loved it!

Do you have a favorite book cover? Chose up to 3 if you like.
I love the cover of The Selection and The Elite By Kiera Cass. Hush Hush By Becca Fitzpatrick has an amazing cover too but I'm not a big fan of the series.


How often do you blog?
I'd have to say that I blog three days a week.Maybe more but I always try to post three times.

How many books do you read in a month - roughly?
At least six.If I'm busy or want to take a break from reading I don't read much but if I can't stop reading...well I might read more than six.

Favorite book character or film character crush.  Yes you can pick 2 :)
I love Kaidan from Sweet Evil By Wendy Higgins. He's amazing. And I love Jamie Campbell Bower who plays Jace on TMI movie.

A character you love to hate in what book/TV show or movie.
I hate Morgan from The Chicagoland Vampires By Chloe Neill. At first I really liked the guy but then....he was so annoying.

    Elena - what do you write about when you do write? Do you write fantasy novels? If you write best under pressure, you should check out NaNoWriMo (where people sign up to write 50,000 words in 1 month!)

    I would love to see Splintered made into a movie too! I think Howard isn't long off in publishing the second novel - Splintered!!!
