Bella's Questions for Me

1. What is your favorite thing about reading?

My favorite thing about reading is the fact that books whisk me away to another land. I can still be in the comfort of my own home, while the author is guiding my imagination to meet new people and visit new places.

2. Which male character is your favorite?

Hmm... Tough question! I really like Picket and Smalls from S.D. Smith's Green Ember series. (Yes, they're rabbits, but they're males! XD)

3. Which female character is your favorite?

I can't say I have a favoriteit varies from book to bookbut I really like Jo March from Little Women.

4. Who is your favorite villain of all time?

I don't think I've read many books with villains/bad guys, so I'm afraid I can't answer this question well.

5. Who is your least favorite character of all time?

Going back to the Green Ember series, Tameth Seer was just really weird. I did not like that character at all. Besides, he led the prince astray! I kinda liked that prince... :(

6. Which book do you think has the strongest plot?

Oh goodness, there are so many! Okay, fine, I'll just go back to the Green Ember series XD I think that especially Ember Falls and Ember Rising had really strong plots. The story kept moving and kept me reading. There were times when I couldn't put the books down!!

7. What gets on your nerves the most in a story (a boring character, an unrealistic plot, etc.)?

There's one book that has a very noticeable transition. As I writer, at least, I noticed it, and it kinda bothered me.

The book begins when one of the main characters is in the desert with her sister (and other people). Then, as the first chapter ends, the book says something like "She leaned back and thought back to the time when ___." And so that's the transition we get to what had happened before she came to the desert on her travels.

It seems almost like a "lazy" transition? That doesn't seem the right way to put it. Just those little things that I notice kinda bug me.

8. Which book has the best cover (share a picture!)?

I have no idea!! I've never looked at a book and thought, "WOW what a great cover! I LOVE IT SO MUCH!" So I don't know how to answer this one. XD

9. Do you let people borrow your books? If so, are you specific about how they treat them?

I probably would let people borrow my books, but people rarely ask. If I ever would, I'd expect them to take good care of my books and not bend the pages and give them to their dog to tear up. XD

10. If a movie could be made based on any book, which book would you choose?

Can it be a series?? I want them to make an entire series of The Chronicles of Narniawithout God's name in vain and cussing! ("The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" said God's name in vain, but I don't remember any of the other movies having far.)

11. Which author has inspired you most?

Oh good, an easy question! ;) Lynn Austin has inspired me the most. Her books are deep and incredible, and I love reading them! She's also in my genre and my type of writing and has been published by Bethany House, which is where I'd like to get published someday. I look up to her.

12. What single book would you be unable to live without?

This isn't a fiction book, but one of my top favorite books of all time is Miracle for Jen, by Linda Barrick. (I wrote an article for TheReb about Jen's life, which you can find here: Jen Barrick: Extraordinary Teen, Extraordinary God.)

This book just reminds me of how great our God is. It tells the story of a teenager with a very close relationship with God. It's an incredible and encouraging story. I highly recommend it.

Well, those were Bella's questions for me! Now, I'd like to nominate these 3 bloggers to answer those questions!

Bella Putt @ Bella Putt: The Pen and the Pages (Yes, she made this tag, but I'd really like to see her answers to these questions, so I'm tagging her!)

Leannah @ The Story Girl

Fe Batoon @ The Unshaken

Well, that's it! That was a fun tag. :)

Are you a big reader?


  1. It was great to get to know you better! Great answers and great read!


  2. Thanks for tagging me, Julia! I loved reading your answers and am excited to answer them myself. ;)

    1. Thanks, Bella! I'm excited to read your answers too! :D

  3. I relate so much with lending people books-- you want it to be returned with special care. There have been times where my paperbacks are returned all bent out of shape and it just makes me cry sad tears. *sobs* Also, JO MARCH. She's such an inspiration in the book and in all the adaptations-- the PBS version did so well but did you see the film stills for the new version coming out? It looks so good!

    1. Hey Abigail! Aww, that's a bummer that people sometimes mistreat your books! :(
      No, I haven't heard that there was a new version coming out. I've seen two or three "Little Women" adaptions, and they're all pretty good. ;)
