Since I am nearing my first year anniversary of the blog, I am excited to present a new feature called “Book Lover.” Basically I will interview people who love to read, like me. I am proud to say Danaih, my “Godsister” is my first book lover interviewee.
She gets just as excited as I do when she walks into a bookstore or library. She also enjoys binge reading as a habit – just like me! I have a feeling she’ll be getting a lot of books today, after all it is her 18th birthday!
Read her interview below and check out her guest blog of The Lions of Little Rock on Friday.
Question: What do you love most about reading/books?
Answer: I love the adventure that I get from reading books. I love being sucked into an imaginary world that seems so real, it helps me get my mind off of all the stress.
Q: Do you like to read books or listen to them?
A: I will always prefer real books over Audible. I love being able to feel the pages turn when I am done reading that section.
Q: What was your favorite book when you were my age?
A: My favorite book was this book called One of the Murphys by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. It tells a story about Carley, this little girl that was thrown into foster care and left on the Murphy’s door step, she has to figure out how to trust again. I thought it was a beautiful story that made me realize what it is like to be in the foster care system and what it is like to have a family that is not blood.
Q: What is your favorite book of all time?
A: My favorite book of all time … that is a hard one. I would have to say is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. It was a really good coming-of-age story about a freshman in college and since I am going to be in college soon I relate to the chapters awkward points.
Q: What do you do for fun – besides reading?
A: Other than reading I do a lot of painting and making treat baskets for my friends. Also I do a lot of baking, too.
Q: Why did you choose Lions of Little Rock to review? (Come back to the blog on Friday to read her review.)
A: I chose The Lions of Little Rock because it was a best middle school book about race that I have ever read. In school I never got taught the experiences that Black people faced and what it was like to not go to school with the white people. So reading a book about those experiences was very eye-opening.
