Book Blogger Appreciation Week Day 2


It's day 2 of BBAW! Today we're interviewing bloggers. I signed up to interview another blogger to get to know someone new. Then I got the email with the name of the blogger I'd be interviewing. Wouldn't you know it...It was my good, IRL friend Suey! We had a laugh over this but decided to just go ahead and interview each other anyway. Enjoy!


 I actually know you pretty well but tell me something about you that I don't know. 

Um... what don't you know? I think you truly know it all! Let's see:
* I recently sent a DNA test into Ancestry.com to learn where I come from
* I tried to play Skyrim once, but it didn't go over well
* I drive past your house probably six times a day at least. (I think you know that one!)
* I want to learn archery and also how to box.

(Besides you driving by my house I didn't know any of these things! How fun! I want to learn archery too but I already know I'm quite awful at it.) 


2 Do you have a favorite book and if so what is it?
I always list The Book Thief as my favorite book, though there are so many that could be named. But this one seems to have it all. I love its uniqueness, its message, its characters, the writing style, the power of the words and the setting. It's truly an amazing book.

3 What's your favorite book to film adaption?
There are so many! I can't list a favorite! Probably the Colin Firth Pride and Prejudice. Also, Lord of the Rings. Also, Holes. Also, The Hunger Games. I'll stop there...

4 I know you like TV. Is there a book you wish would become a TV series?

My first thought is the Starbound trilogy, but not sure if that would work as a TV show. Some long drawn out saga would be fun to do as a TV show, but I haven't read something like that for a long time it seems. Gah! I can't think of a good answer here! What do YOU want to see as a TV show?
(Well, look at what they did with The Vampire Diaries. I read the books and, wow, they weren't at all like the series. So maybe they could make it work. I'd like the Mathew Swift Series to be a TV show. I think it might be a movie one day but a TV show would work better.)

5 How long have you been blogging and what does the future of your blogging life look like?
Next month it will be nine years of book blogging. (I blogged for a year before that on Yahoo's 360 thing, which was awesome at the time. So in fact, it's been ten years this month since I actually started writing blog posts. Wow.) And my future is... steady. I think I will perhaps not be posting as often as I have been, but will probably never quit intentionally. My blogging may shift to have more of a writing spin then a reading spin. But that remains to be seen too. Here's hoping I can just ride the wave of change and keep up with it all!

Thanks for the fun interview, Suey! I learned things about you that I didn't know! 

Be sure to check out Suey's blog for my interview. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. What a fun interview! Did you two already know each other or did you meet through blogging?

  5. I was going to say that you should learn archery together - but Jenny already said that. LOL

    And why boxing? :-)

  8. I tried playing Skyrim, too, and it didn't go well for me, either. But, that moon is pretty at night, isn't it?

  9. This was a fun interview. I am currently reading Pride & Prejudice (yes, I am probably the last one in the universe!), and plan to watch the movie on this weekend, so yay!

  10. Oooh, Ancestry DNA is so fun! Even though I know exactly where I came from, I took the test. It was fascinating. Plus, because of the website, I've been able to communicate with long-lost cousins and get help with my genealogy. I hope you learn lots of interesting stuff from that, Suey!

    2. It's going to say.. Western Europe!! Surprise surprise. BUT there might be some other interesting tidbit, and finding others and making tree connections will be fun. However that works, my husband will have to help me figure it out.

  11. With Suey as a fellow blogger friend, how did we not know of each other before?!? I'm glad to see we have fixed this now!!

    I learned a few new things myself about Suey! Fun interview!!

    1. Wait, Tif and Jenny have not been following each other before? For reals? That is strange!!!

    2. I know! I don't know how we've missed each other all this time.

  12. I don't even know what Skyrim is. You two should find your inner Katniss and do the archery! Colin Firth is the best Mr. Darcy.

    1. I don't know what it is either. I think we'd not be too Katniss like but it would be fun to try.
