Three Facts About Me:
1. My middle name is Courtney and I really, like really dislike it. Don’t mention it to me…EVER! 😛
2. I love watching hockey but don’t skate because I had an accident in PE class in elementary school that scared the life out of me.
3. I’ve dyed my hair tons of colours but I’d love to go the lilac route just to see what it would look like. But I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be allowed to go to work if I dyed my hair an “unnatural” colour.
1. What is one book you have read that you think is underrated? Why do you think it’s underrated?
Ryan Graudin is a brilliant writer and I adored the Wolf by Wolf series, but her 2014 novel The Walled City is even better. I don’t think many people know about it. It deserves a lot more love for sure!
2. If you were stranded on an island and could only bring three books what would you bring?
Hmmmm…Persuasion by Jane Austen (my heart ), Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (the Dregs are just the greatest group of people ever) and Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco (because the banter between the two main character will keep me amused).
3. Which would you prefer: coffee, tea, or neither? Why?
I’m all about the caffeine! I drink tons and tons of coffee, but also enjoy tea. It really depends on the situation and time of day. Coffee is usually for the morning and tea when I come home from work in the evening.
4. Do you keep the artist separate from the art? Or do you think they should go together? What I mean is, say an artist creates something that you absolutely love, but you find out they are a terrible person, would you still enjoy their art or would you boycott it?
I have a hard time separating the artist from their work. The work is kind of an extension of themselves, even if it’s a fictional book based in a fantasy world. Also, why would I want to support someone who is terrible? Twitter has really opened my eyes to a lot of authors who write books for young people but then attack them for their sexual orientation, race, beliefs, etc. I can’t support that! It goes against everything I believe in and besides, do we really want this person writing more books? Hell no!!!!
5. The weird question: If you had to do cartwheels or somersaults for the rest of your life which one would you choose?
I’m better at doing cartwheels so I’m going with that one!
1. What is your favourite book cover? Why is it your favourite?
2. If you could have two book characters (from different books) fall in love, who would you choose? Why?
3. Are books over 500 pages a turn off? Why or why not?
4. If you could pick one author to write a YA book based on your life who would you pick? Why?
5. What mythical creature should authors stop writing about? Why?
