Courtney's Questions for Me
1. What's the best book recommendation you've ever received from someone?
A few months ago, my grandmother recommended A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith to me. I fell in love with the book, and it was amazing to share such an incredible story with my grandmother.
2. What are some goals you have for your blog and yourself as a blogger?
One of my biggest goals for this blog is to reach out to teenagers who are active in the YA community. As a teenage YA blogger, I would love to spark interactions between other teen book bloggers. My personal goals as a blogger are to expose myself to new and exciting books through the blogging community.
3. What's your proudest moment as a blogger?
Well, I haven't been a blogger for very long, but my proudest moment was getting my first follower on Bloglovin'. It felt so good to see someone who not only read and enjoyed my blog but wanted to continue reading it in the future.
4. Who is your favorite fictional character and why?
This may sound a tad cliche (whoops), but Hermoine Granger. I have read the Harry Potter books countless times, and I always find myself aspiring to be as smart and caring as she is.
5. What's the funniest thing that ever happened to you?
When the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was a thing, I tried to do it with really cold water and my aunt's nice glass bowl. I flipped the bowl over my head and was so shocked by the cold that I accidentally chucked the bowl across her driveway and it shattered everywhere!
6. Name three shows you've been wanting to watch but haven't gotten around to watching them yet.
How I Met Your Mother, Reign, Jane the Virgin
7. If you could travel anywhere in the world today, where would you go?
I would go to Italy! For the last four years, I have taken Latin, and I would love to see the birthplace of the language I have devoted quite a long time to!
8. What was the name of the last book you picked up, but couldn't finish?
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey
