|My goofy selfie in the NYC hotel for BEA|
It's been about a month since I had my Ask Me Anything post, and now it's time I finally shared the answers to all your questions.
What is your all time favorite read ever? My favorite book? I usually say The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
Favorite movie? I'm sure I could name many, but I really love Life as a House.
What is your favorite place you've ever visited? I haven't been to that many places, to be honest! I guess New York City because I've been there a few times and there is always something fun and exciting to see/do.
Growing up, what did you aspire to be and why? When I was younger, I was interested in being a teacher. For the most part though, I've always wanted to be an author because I love books!
What was the best part of BEA for you? Making connections with some publicists! It was great to feel more a part of things.
What do you hope to have achieved by the time you are 30? I would love to have a book published, but at the very least, having an agent/publishing deal by that point. I also really hope I've visited England by then!
How was your weekend at BEA? Did you get all the books you wanted? BEA was a lot of fun. I didn't get ALL the books I wanted, but I got many, and it was fun to find out about new titles while there.
What was the absolute best part of BEA (and the worst part, while we're at it!)? As I said above, I got to meet with some publicists and make more connections, which was awesome. I also really liked walking around and talking to smaller publishers, etc. The worst part? Probably just all the walking you do in NYC in general. I have sensitive feet so they were so sore.
When did you discover your love for books? I don't remember ever NOT liking to read. I used to read all the time as a kid, just like I do now.
I want to know all the HP-related stuff: favourite book in the series, favourite character, house choice, wand choice, patronus choice??
Book - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and then Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Character: Draco Malfoy
House Choice: Slytherin (I'm a Slytherin on Pottermore actually)
Wand Choice: I don't know! I'd love a darker wood, and unicorn hair would be fun.
Patronus Choice: Hmm...I really like Penguins! :)
Do you have anything special that you do on your birthday each year? Any rituals, besides birthday cake and presents? I don't really! My family usually goes out to eat (birthday person's choice) but the place differs every year, for the most part.
