Giselle's Questions 
  1. What made you start blogging? Did anyone inspire you? If so who and how?
I started blogging because I wanted to document my life in a sort of diary-like way, but then I discovered book blogging and thats what I do now I talk and discuss books becuase I love them and I dont know where I would be without them, the person who actually inspired me was Lucy from Queen of Contemporary and becuase of her and her amazing blog I decided to turn my normal blog into a book blog so I cannot be more grateful to her. Thank you sooo much Lucy!

    2. What is your dream cast for your favorite book?

Oh God! This is hard enough picking a favourite book! But all of my top favourites have already been made into movies and their casts are perfect. But one of my favourite books that hasn't been turned into a movie yet is Life Swap by Abby McDonald and I doubt it will get made, but my dream cast is Indiana Evans as Em, Phoebe Tonkin as Natasha, Skandar Keynes  as Will and Matt Lanter  as Ryan. (This took me sooo long to decide)

     3.Top played song on your iPod?

I actually havent actually listened to my Ipod in a while because I just listen to my Itunes, so my top played song on that is All of the Stars by Ed Sheeran from the TFIOS soundtrack, I absolutley love that song as (obviously) it's from the TFIOS film and Ed Sheeran sings it and he is one of my favourite singers ever.

       4. Which book characters would you be friends with and why?

I would like to think I would be friends with Sydney Sage, because we are quite similar in personalities, so we would get along easily. Also Hermione Granger simply becuase she is Hermione Granger and she is awesome and I would love to have her as a friend. Celeana Sardothien becuase she is amazingly loyal will stand up for what she beleieves in, and thats something I love in my friends. And also I would love to be friends with Eddie Castile becuase he is so sweet and so nice and you can have a joke with him and I love him he is one of my favorite male characters.

   5.What book can you re-read and re-read and always love? Why?

Harry Potter!!! Easiest question ever, I can re-read the Harry Potter series over and over again and love without ever getting bored of it. It is ultimately my childhood, and if you ask anyone who knows me they will tell you I am obsessed with Harry Potter.

    6.Strange Reading habits?

I don't know whether this is strange or not, but if I listen to music when I'm reading I can only listen to the Pride and Prejudice (2005) soundtrack because the classical feel of the soundtrack always makes me feel in a read-y mood, I don't know why it's only that but I cant read if I listen to anything else.  

   7.If you could live in any time period, what would it be and why?

I think It would be the Rennaisance period, as I love anthing to do with that time period, the clothes the etiquette, the life at royal court, just everything. So that would be the time period I would like to live in :)

  8.Name a quote that describes you best.

I dont think just one quote can ever describe someone so here's a few that describe me :

  • "To wish you were someone else wastes the person you are" - Unknown
  • "Hope is the only thing stronger than fear" -THG
  • "If you can dream it, you can do it" - Walt Disney
  • "When writing the story of your life, don't let anyone else hold the pen" - Harley Davidson
   9.What book made you cry the most and why?

The one book that does make me cry the most is The Fault in our Stars, I tend to cry at different points in the book but I always without fail cry at Augustus' letter at the end, because it's just so beautifully sad I cant help but cry.

 10.Favorite Disney movie?

Beauty and the Beast. Enough said.

  11. Coffee or Tea?

Neither, I am not a fan of hot drinks, so I will happily drink any kind of fruit juice like Oasis as a substitute :)
