1. What was the last book you read? 

The last book that I read was called “The Cycle of The Werewolf” by Stephen King. 

2. Was it a good one?

It was a good once, I really enjoyed it! 

3. What made it good? 

The story and the way in which the events of the story took place (especially how it was formatted in the novel – also there were illustrations featuring gorey details which made the events all the more real. 

4. Would you recommend it to other people? 

I would recommend it to other people, especially those who like Werewolves or horror type fiction. 

5. How often do you read?

I read a lot! At least once every day or night… Recently I have just gotten back into reading now that I have finished University so I have a lot more reading to look forward to. 

6. Do you like to read? 

I like reading fantasy fiction in particular, although I am open to reading other genres. 

7. What was the last bad book you read? 

Hm… The last bad book? That is a tough one but I am going to have to say The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. It’s not that it was bad, really, it was just the weaker of the books I have read in that series.

It was too slowly paced for my liking and I couldn’t get into the story – that changed though when I began reading the book which follows it in the series.

I wish to be a journalist, which is a form of writing so I suppose that my answer is yes. Who knows, I may even write a book one day. 

10. Has any book ever influenced you greatly?

Yes! The Harry Potter Series – I suppose if you are asking for a single book I will have to say Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone as it is where it all began but reading that book series/book helped me through a LOT of difficult times and influenced me as a person.
