Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Soon-to-be-teacher, book enthusiast, avid-music-concert-goer, become obsessed with things way too quickly..
Why are you here today?
To spend the last of my money on more books … as always.
What book would you recommend to everyone and why?
Crank by Ellen Hopkins. Epicly written all through poems, it holds such a powerful message and deals with some remarkable themes. Then, after you’re done, read Identical by Ellen Hopkins.
Tell us about a book that has changed your life.
Is it too cliché to say Harry Potter? It got me into reading and has made a huge impact on my life and bank account. What was that I said about becoming too obsessed with things?
If there was a book that could sum you up as a person, what would it be?
Here I would love to say Throne of Glass, but I am definitely not as badass as the amazing Celaena Sardothien. I’ll have to go with Fangirl. Tells a story of a girl who was moving to college and was still stuck in the heads of characters from her favourite story. I could definitely relate to that. Or Amy & Matthew by Cammie McGovern. (The character Amy is) such a strong and independent girl despite being in a wheelchair – I can definitely relate to that.
