Our 11 questions from Karen

1) When did you start reading? 
Jenny's answer: Very young. My mom used to read to me when I was little. One day she stopped while reading and I starting reading instead. Come to find out, I had the book memorized because she read it to me everyday. (That still counts, right?)
Nick's answer: I don't really remember when I started. I just always seemed to have read. I would stop reading for awhile, pick it back up and stop it again. Since Jenny got hooked on YA, I haven't stopped since.

2)What is your favorite book character EVER?
Jenny's answer: This one is tough... I'd have to say Mortimer Folchart from the Inkheart series. He could literally bring words from books to life.
Nick's answer: Oh man, this question is brutal. I have so many favorites that I would have to say I don't have an "All-time" favorite character.

3)Do you prefer YA or Adult? What genre?
Jenny's answer: YA, of course! Paranormal and Mystery Thriller.
Nick's answer: Science Fiction and Dystopian.

Favorite series: "The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade" & "Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
Nick's answer: Favorite stand alone "War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells" Favorite Series: "Gunsmith Cats by Keni Sonoda. (Manga counts, right? :D)

5) What is your biggest fear and biggest dream?
Jenny's answer: Biggest Dream - Being a successful author
Biggest Fear - Never ever finishing a manuscript
Nick's answer: Biggest Dream - Living comfortable and being able to take care of my family.
Biggest Fear - Death

6) One thing you cannot live without?

(We know, it's very sad.)

Nick's answer: Werewolves without a doubt.

10) How often do you read?
Jenny's answers: All the time. Sometimes I take a break for a day or two but it's not long before I'm immersed into a book again.
Nick's answer: Lately, ever chance I get.

If you could marry any book character (boy or girl), who would you pick?
Jenny's answer: Patch from Hush, Hush

    I actually nominated your blog as well for the Liebster Blog Award. It's a bit different though as it only has five questions, etc. But of course, it has the same aim. You can find the post here: "Liebster Blog Award".

    Have fun!
