I was tagged by Ashley for the Q&A tag – thank you Ashley!
Here’s how it work: you answer ten questions, create ten questions of your own, then “tag” ten other people to participate!
1.If you could meet any author, who would you want to meet? Oooh that’s hard. Never mind, scratch that – super easy. I’d meet author MacKenzie Morganthal. Yep. No doubt about it!
2. What is your dream job? Oh golly…I’m awful at this question. I guess the simple answer would be: I don’t have a dream job.Not really. I want to be a couple things, but I don’t know if I’d classify them as “dream job”. I just want to want what God wants. :)
3. If you could travel to either Narnia, Middle Earth, or “a galaxy far, far away”, which would you choose to visit? Why? Narnia. Because it’d be pretty neat, and also because I’m not “into” LotR of Star Wars. :)
4. What is your favorite genre to read? Magic-less fantasy/fairytale, and yes…Clean Christian Romance.
5. Who is your favorite fictional character, and why? Whoah. What a question. Is this answerable?!
I have so many favourite fictional characters. :D Molly Gibson (Wives and Daughters), Elinor (Sense and Sensibility), Walter (“A Distant Melody”), Jace (“Resistance”), and of course my own characters. Really, I don’t think I can answer this question justly. I love so many characters.
6. Do you have a favorite Bible verse? Again, I have so many. Psalm 27 is special to me though, among many other passages. :)
7. What is/was your favorite school subject?
Favourite subject in school? Funny question. ;) I guess history was probably my favourite.
8. If you’re a writer, what is your favorite part of the writing process (rough draft, editing, etc)? Rough draft. I love the first writing process. Editing…not so much.
9. What is your favorite book-to-movie adaptation? I’d like to say “Wives and Daughters” by Elizabeth Gaskell but I haven’t read the entire book yet…I’ll go with “North and South” by Elizabeth Gaskell though – I love the book and movie!
10. Are you a coffee drinker or a tea drinker? Tea drinker for sure. I love tea and have at least one cup a day. :)

Good morning. :)
Today I am participating in the Blog Launch of a friend’s – I’ve also got an interview for you. So let us waste no time…
(This piece was meant to look like a fantasy story bookish kind of piece)
Good day, fellow online friends. :)
Faith at Stories by Firefly! tagged me for the By the Book tag, and it looks quite fun!
What book is on your nightstand now?
Well, I don’t literally keep books on my nightstand, besides my Bible and maybe a nonfiction, but the book I am currently reading is “Courageous” by Dina Sleiman – such a beautiful book!
What was the last truly great book you read?
Oh let’s see…I’ve read several that have not been so good, but the last truly great book would probably be “Land of Silence” by Tessa Afshar, followed by “If He Lives” by Sarah Holman and “The Fences Between Us” by Kirby Larson.
If you could meet any writer – dead or alive – who would it be? And what would you want to know?
Ah, hard! I like Faith’s answer of John from the Bible – it would be amazing to meet him and hear his accounts firsthand.
As for alive…I want to meet several authors! Tessa Afshar – I’d just like to listen to her talk, hear how God inspired each of her stories, etc. I’d also love to meet Chuck Black and hear first hand about his allegorical fiction. I could go on… :D
What books might we be surprised to find on your shelves?
Hmmm, maybe The Bonnets and Bugles series by Gilbert Morris…I loved that series when I was younger. Would love to re-read them. :) Or perhaps some of the Amelia’s Notebooks books…I absolutely loved those in my young tween/teenage years and upon finding copies at a book sale for cheap/free, I knew I had to get them. :)
How do you organize your personal library?
Haha, um…well, it’s a little jumbled to the outside eye perhaps. I organize by most favourites on middle shelf, great books on top and bottom (and actually some favourites are on the bottom because my middle shelf is too full!), and a different bookcase for “To-Read” :D
What book have you always meant to read and haven’t gotten around yet?
I have many of those. Like, a lot. ^.^ But maybe…”Wives and Daughters” by Elizabeth Gaskell. I adore the movie, and so badly want to read the book, but haven’t gotten to it yet…someday! :D
Anything you feel embarrassed never to have read?
Any number of the classics. I admit I’ve always had a hard time getting through one….I did read “North and South” by Elizabeth Gaskell though, and thoroughly enjoyed that. But anyway, yeah, classics, like Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Charles Dickens, etc.
Disappointing, overrated, just not good: what book did you feel you are supposed to like but didn’t?
Alright. I’m gonna say it. “A Time to Die” by Nadine Brandes. I had very high expectations. And on some accounts it was good. But…it disappointed me, and made me angry. I can’t say much without giving it away.
Another would probably be…”The Prophetess” by Jill Eileen Smith and “Bathsheba” by Angela Hunt.
Do you remember the last book you put down without finishing?
“The Fiercest Fight” by Brent King. Not my kind of book.
What kind of stories are you drawn to? Any you stay clear of?
Up-lifting, encouraging Christian books. Biblical Fiction, magic-less fantasy, etc. If they have a strong Christian theme, I’m there. :) As for what I avoid, that would be books containing magic/sorcery of any kind.
If you could require the president to read one book, what would it be?
The Bible, definitely.
What do you plan to read next?
Not entirely sure…perhaps “The Cautious Maiden” by Dawn Crandall….or whatever I feel like. :)
And I tag….
and whoever wants to do it. :) Let me know if you do, so I can read your answers! :)
And also, just a quick note: I updated my “Book Sale!” page here, so there’s new books! :)
Faith P. at Stories by Firefly! tagged me for the It’s Show Time tag! So, I shall do that. :) Thanks Faith!
I made up the name for this tag, as I am unsure if it has one…I was nominated for it by the lovely Shantelle on Google+ and decided to do the tag here on my blog instead. :) So, here it is:
Role model: My Mum – so thankful for her godly example!
Hobbies: Reading, writing, being on the computer (yep, it’s a hobbie. ;)), knife/tomahawk throwing, and letter-writing.
Crush: If I have one, why would I tell?! ;) I guess I could say Mr. Thornton (North and South), or Noah (“Family Lies, Deadly Ties”), or Jace (!! “Ilyon Chronicles”), or Walter (“A Distant Melody”), or any number of my other fictional crushes. ;) Haha.
Best friend: This is information I am not at liberty to disclose. Ahahaha. XD
Favorite band: TobyMac. Mmmhhmmm. And Tenth Avenue North is great too. And some other ones. But mainly, TobyMac.
Favorite Song: Right now? Hmmm…I don’t know. ?? How’s that for an answer.
Favorite Movie: “Wives and Daughters”, “North and South”, “Persuasion”, the How to Train Your Dragon movies (of course!), and I know I’m forgetting some….
Favorite animal: Cats! Yep, definitely cats. I love them. :) I also love elephants, and mules, and guinea-pigs, and other cute creatures. Oh and Dragons. ;)
Favorite subject: I am out of school, but favourite always was history I suppose. =)
Pens or pencils? Probably pens, as I use them more, but I do love a sharp pencil!
Summer or winter: This is so easy – Winter. I love it, and I never get sick of it. :)
Tea or coffee: Definitely tea. I don’t drink coffee.
Good day or bad day: It’s only just begun…I’m gonna say good day though since that’s what I want. :)
Birthday: That’s for me to know, and you to never find out. Muahaha. XD Okay, not really. But I’m still not tellin’. It’s sometime in the Fall. ;)
Tag the follower you’ve known the longest:
Tag five of your best internet friends: I’m going to break the rules and not do this, only because I don’t want to unintentionally forget to list someone and then hurt their feelings due to my forgetfulness. So friends, you know who you are and I deeply appreciate each one of you!! Truly, I do. My internet friends are amazing and I am very thankful for ye all. :)
Something that makes you happy: Receiving letters in the mail – and any kind of mail, really. I loooove getting mail. That’s gonna be a mandatory for my future beau – he has to write me letters. ;) Haha, don’t know how he’ll like that one, but we’ll see. XD Other things that make me happy are pretty rolls of washi-tape, my cats, getting online messages from me friendsys, and knives/swords/tomahawks. Those make me happy too.
Something you’re looking forward to: Receiving the books I recently purchased by one of my favourite authors (J.A. Marx), and getting caught up on my old review-books so I can properly enjoy my Sabbatical. I’m sure there’s other things more exciting to look forward to, I’m just drawing a blank. XD
Tell a story in one sentence: “Once upon a time, there was a maiden writing a blog post about a tag, and she was asked to tell a story in one sentence, which perhaps seemed a bit daunting to her at the moment because her mind was not wanting to produce something of that creative order, so instead the maiden settled on this rambling sentence and left it at: The End.”
Have a good day!
Hello! I was tagged for this award by the lovely Faith at Stories by Firefly! Thank you, Faith!
(Note: For some strange – and frustrating – reason, every time I post, my blog doesn’t show the spaces between each section, and so I apologize for it all running together. If anyone knows why my blog isn’t allowing spaces, I’d love some insight on how to fix it!)
