And now for the third part of the Blogger Survey!

22. Favorite genre?

Contemp romance, Dystopian, historical fiction and “issues” books

23. Genre you rarely read (but wish you did?)

I love Meg Cabot, she writes just the right amount of fluff into her contemporary stories, Robin Benway all wrote a great, hilarious (less fluffy) book called Audrey, Wait! I wish that I could find more “funny” books like these.

24. Favorite biography?

A Chance to Die: The Legacy of Amy Carmichael by Elisabeth Elliot

25. Have you ever read a self-help book?

I have.

26. Favorite cookbook?

I am allergic to cooking. The oven is allergic to me. Microwaves are my friend.

27. Most inspirational book you’ve read this year (fiction or non-fiction)?

Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly did amazing things to me, I suggest everyone read it.

28. Favorite reading snack?

I always chug insane amounts of water when I read. I drink close to 20 cups a day.

29. Name a case in which hype ruined your reading experience.

It hasn’t really, I mean, a good book is a good book, if I don’t like it my reason is not “It’s too popular!”

30. How often do you agree with critics about a book?

I never agree with profession critics. I think we should officially change their name to ‘Cynics.’ Pro-Cynics are unhappy people who like to take their frustration out on music, movies and books. BrittLitt from Reading Nook and I agree very often, Miranda from Just Read and I are mostly in sync, but when we have a difference of opinion I am on the con side of things while she is pro.

31. How do you feel about giving bad/negative reviews?

I feel no qualms about posting negative reviews, I have posted something like 5 truly, horrendously negative reviews in my few months blogging. My “job” is to tell the truth, not sugar-coat things. I will support my reasons for not liking the book, I am not just going to go “off” on a book, that is not fair.
