Questions from Nitzan-Katia Schwarz:

1. Why did you start blogging? 
I started blogging because I love to read and I had been visiting several book blogs when I decided that I should start my own book blog. I mean, why not? Reading and blogging? What's not to like?
2. Which is your favorite book and why?
This is a tough one... probably Obsidian, by Jennifer L. Armentrout because it's so creative and I love Damon.
3. Favorite author and the thing you love best about his/her writing?
Tahereh Mafi because the thoughts of her characters are realistic. They're not this pretty perfect writing you usually get. It's real.
4.What is your favorite genre?
Young Adult
5. What do you look for when choosing a book?
Romance, bad boys, and a sprinkle of the paranormal.
6. How do you spend your free time?
Reading, or daydreaming about books. If I'm not reading a book, I'll be thinking about one.
7. What would you change in your life if you could?
All of the complications. I'd make them disappear.
8. What is your biggest dream?
To be a published author.
9. When was the last time you laughed so hard your stomach hurt and why?
At Halloween. My friends and I took my younger  brother trick-or-treating and my friend Emma said something, I can't even remember what it was, but I laughed so hard I spilled my candy everywhere.
10. How'd you feel when you heard you're nominated?
I was super excited. I'm a newbie blogger, so I didn't expect to get anything for a long time.
11. Any goals for 2013?
Self-publish my story Phoenix.

Hey Kacii! I loved reading those facts about you (6 schools in 6 years?! Are you a Demi God?!?!??!)
So jealous of your 22 countries! I only ever went to 3 :/

I also loved reading your answers to my questions! I wish you luck on publishing your story!!! :D

Nitzan-Katia Schwarz said...

LOL, don't worry - you'll be like Percy, one of the few Demi Gods who survive past 16!! :D
Besides, you'll have cool supernatural powers. It's sooo worth it :>

I'm actually writing a script that has to do with Demi Gods right now, about a girl who lives in her books so much she believes they're real and thinks her classmate is a Demi God, and I had such a "I'm this character" moment when I read of your 6 schools :>

I envy you :< My dad thinks it's just mambo jumbo, and home is the best place to be, so he refuses to spend much money on travelling. Though when we do travel, we go all out :>

Haha, no need to thank me for wishing you luck!

Hey Kacii, can I ask you an unrelated question? How did you create those Facebook and Twitter icons on the sidebar? I really want to have a similar thing in my blog but have no idea how to do it :O

Nitzan-Katia Schwarz said...

Hey Kacii!
I do intend to go travel with my friends after I finish college, and I want to go for a huge trip after my army service, too. For a few months to go and see the world!
Ohh, ancient Greek temples? sounds so cool! (now, seriously, are you sure you aren't a demi god? :O)

I'd love it if you send me the HTML code and instructions! you can send it to me on Goodreads? My name there is Nitzan Schwarz.

I love comments! So don't hesitate to share your thoughts. Leave your blog/website name and link so I can get back to you. And if you're a new follower, tell me. Note that this is an award-free zone. I loved getting awards and I was pleased you guys thought I was special, but I was nominated so many times and it took a lot of time to do the award posts, time that I don't have. So thanks, but no thanks.

Happy reading!

Kacii
