What are you currently reading? How is it so far?

I am currently reading Winter by Marissa Meyer and I really like it! I’m excited to see the crew’s hard work pay off but I’m also sad that the series is ending. Iko is my favorite. I love her energy and her sass. I’m also really eager to learn more about Winter and to discover her role in the series.

What are two books we’d find in your beach/pool bag?

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and A Court of Wings and Ruin

What are your favorite movie or tv show adaptations?

The Lord of the Rings ( I still have a crush on Legolas) and Harry Potter ( I love the books and the movies equally!)

What’s your favorite childhood book?

My favorite childhood book is probably The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine. It’s full of magic and love and it’s extremely age appropriate material.

(interviewer interruption) OMG that’s one of my favorite childhood books too!! I remember reading about love and illness and royalty and feeling like an adult lol anyways back to you!

And finally, What is the last book you gave a 5-star rating to? Why?

I’m going to try to do this without gushing but the last book I gave 5 stars to was  Obsidio by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. It’s hard to explain why I gave it 5 stars. The simplest thing I can say is that it has so much meaning behind it. Fighting for what’s right even if it’s hard or requires monumental sacrifice. I loved all of the main characters. I love how it portrayed our humanity so well. I just really liked the book and the entire series. I believe everyone should read these books.

Thank you Alicen for allowing all of us to get to know you a bit better. And for being my first guest and feature! I don’t know about any of our readers, but I absolutely fan-girled over your response to your favorite childhood book!
