Pass The Parcel Blog Party



1. Name your top 5 favourite YA authors: 

 J.K Rowling, Ann Rinaldi, Lemony Snicket, J.R.R Tolkien and Suzanne Collins

2. What's the last YA book you read and what did you think of it?

"Mockingjay" by Suzanne Collins. It was very dark and I wouldn't say that it had a happy ending, but more along the lines of a hopeful ending.

3. What's your favourite YA genre? (Dystopian, romance, sci-fi, contemporary, etc.)

Fantasy and history

4. Let's talk characters! Pick a character you love and tell us why?

Hermione Granger from "Harry Potter." She really is the greatest female literary character of my generation. Hermione is the perfect balance of intelligence, loyalty and courage that coincides with beauty, generosity and kindness. Because of Hermione Granger, girls weren't afraid to be smart, they learned that true leadership comes from being a loyal follower and that love and romance are two very separate ideals.

5. Top YA villain?

 That's hard...probably Voldemort or President Snow.

6. Top YA couple?

 James and Lily Potter

7. With dystopian on the decline, what do you think will be the next hot-trend in YA?

 History

8. What's the next YA book on your to-be-read pile?

 "The Mortal Instruments: The City of Bones" by Cassandra Clare

9. What's the fastest time you've ever finished reading a book in? (And what was the book?!)

 2dys. "Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban."

10. (And now for the burning question) Do you think books should be sorted according to colour or title? (This matters.) 

By title. Because by title there is a general order, but by color it's a personal order. So, by title is easier.

  1. Loved it! And, of course, I'm a big fan of Mockingjay myself. It was dark, but it's almost my favourite of the series (only "almost", because the first one is still gob-smacking good). And YAY for Lemony Snicket!! :)

    Thanks for doing the tag with us!!

  3. What a fun idea for a blog party. I'll have to visit their blog and see about participating myself.

    I love James & Lily Potter -- great choice! And Hermione is an amazing, nuanced character.

    I agree, books should be sorted by title. Much easier to find that way if you have a lot of them.
