Inquisitive Wednesday– Quirky Questions for Readers, Part 6

It’s Inquisitive Wednesday! On IW, I answer 5-10 questions, be they from awards, tags, or reader input.

I’m going be answering the 55 Quirky Questions for Readers tag. 55 questions about books!

"You want weapons?We're in a library! BOOKS! The best weapons in the WORLD"- The tenth Doctor. Why i love him so much. He loves books
Tenth Doctor reads books. Books are cool.

I’m going to answer 5 questions at a time. Here we go!

26. Favourite Cookbook:

Probably my great-grandmother’s church cookbook. While there are only a few recipes we actually use in it, it has a lot of sentimental value for me (and an awesome banana bread recipe).

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

Oh boy… I’ll come back to this question.

28. Favourite reading snack:

Ice. Seriously, I eat ice all the time. But a bowl of cereal before bed with a good book is awesome.

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

Um… Give me another minute to think about this.

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

I don’t know. I tend to not read books when everyone else is reading them. So, I don’t really care about hype. And even then, it’s never ruined my reading experience…

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

Who’s critiquing? I don’t know. Most critic reviews that I see are plastered on the front or back of the book and say things like “The Dazzling Conclusion to the Sparkle Trilogy! A glittery adventure you can’t get off your hands! ~Vampires Weekly”. And those are all positive. So… yeah, I guess I agree with them to some extent. I try not to read books I don’t like.

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

Sigh. I guess I had better answer this one now… um… GOT IT.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I absolutely loved it and it did inspire me. I read it when I was struggling with my writing this past August. The Raven Boys gave me insight into writing style, how to balance dialogue and exposition. And it helped me realize that I really enjoy writing urban fantasy. What about you guys?

Hype? Critics? Inspirational reads? Snackies? Tell me in the comments!

  1. First off… I’m amused by the fact that it’s still Tuesday my timezone. Hehe, sorry, this is totally irrelevant.

    I’ll be honest, I never eat while I’m reading…

    Hype? Oh boy. If there’s too much hype about a book, I won’t touch it with a ten mile pole.

    I honestly can’t think of the most inspirational book I’ve read this year. I suppose… inspiration in what way? When I read The Book Thief, it kind of inspired me to write something beautiful. Sadly, that inspiration went nowhere. But…I’m not sure I really read anything that inspirational this year.

  2. 26. Um…does my mom’s stack of really old cooking magazines count?

    27. Oh dear. Um… One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. Non-fiction. Helped change the way I look at life, especially when thinks aren’t going “well.” Besides that, though, I’ll list the Violet books, Dark Halo, and The Purpose-Driven Life.

    28. I rarely eat while I’m reading. Unless I’m trying to get in a few pages during lunch or something. But over the years, I think when I’ve actually eaten a snack while eating, it’s been mostly yogurt or cheez-its. Cheez-its are the best. 🙂

    29. The Fault in Our Stars. I’m not sure if the hype could be blamed for ruining my “experience,” but I definitely did not like it as much as all the…hype people. Seriously guys. Inappropriate stuff, especially that famed humor. So disappointing.

    30. Confused with this question as well…

Ooh! Are you going to leave a comment? I love comments! And I like replying to them, too!
