MY ANSWERS TO JACKIE’S QUESTIONS:
- If you could talk to any historical character in time, what advice would you give him or her?
I honestly don’t know who I would advise, but I was thinking Abraham Lincoln. I’d probably tell him not to go to see the play on April 14, 1865. But I think that his assassin would have found another opportunity to kill him, so…
- If you were stranded on an island, which human fictional character would you want by your side for the rest of your life and why?
Easy! I’ll go with Whini from the Unwritten series. She’s a bit of a busy body, but she’s very resourceful, and is used to surviving under unusual circumstances.
- You have this magical book where you can write your future and make it come true. What would the first and last thing you’d put down?
It would begin with: “In a world where humans had wings and donkeys could talk, there lived…” and it would end with: “And thus was the life of this weird, but lucky lass”. It’s a magical book, so I guess anything goes 😉
- A curse has been put onto a child. He can only read one book in his life. What would you tell him to read?
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. No one should die without having read a Shakespeare poem or story (I’ll just tell him to skip Romeo and Juliet).
- You are given the opportunity to be an English literature teacher. What are three books you’d make students read and one project you’d make them do?
The Siege by Helen Dunmore, The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, and The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh.
I’ll have each of them write three poems that feature three different themes.
- You get to adapt one book into a movie; remake or not. What would it be and how would you make sure it’s a success?
Twilight series. I’ll recast Bella or Edward… or both!
- Your favorite movie deserves a sequel. You are given the task to write its sequel as a book. What would it be about?
I don’t have a favourite movie, so I can’t answer this question. (Sadly, I’ve never really been a movie person).
- You’re evil for one day; assuming you aren’t every other day. What is the first thing you’re going to do?
Thinking of the consequences, I don’t think I’ll do anything extremely evil. I’ll probably kidnap a few authors, or something. (Is there anything better than having a constant source of beautiful stories?)
- Your favorite fictional character comes to life for a whole day before going back to his or her next adventure; that you know of or not. What would you do?
I’d spend a day with him or her.
- You’ve become the leader of all leaders, a World Ruler. What would be your first political move?
To make books a new measure of wealth. (I’ll be rich!!!) 🙂
HERE ARE MY QUESTIONS:
- If you could read the works of only one author in your lifetime, whose books would you read?
- Books or movies? (which do you prefer?)
- Do book covers play any part in your book selection (when buying books)?
- Have you ever not finished a book? If so, why?
- Do you have a set blogging calendar, or do you just post stuff whenever?
- What’s the book you most enjoyed in 2015?
- Is there a book or movie that you’ve anticipated so much, but just ended up disappointed after its release?
- Is there any book that everyone loves but you don’t (and vice versa)?
- Has any book/movie ever driven you to react violently? What was your reaction?
- What is your biggest pet peeve?
