1 and 30 :)

Thanks for the questions!

1. If you could travel to one place you’ve read about in a book, what place would you visit and what book was it from?

Definitely Hogwarts. =]

30. Have you ever finished a book that rendered you so emotionally unstable you couldn’t start another one for a few days?

Just about every book. The most recent is probably a collection of short stories called Magic for Beginners by Kelly Link. I had to stop after just about every short story because they were so powerful. 


Book questions!
