It was repetitive. She wanted to do good, but was a nasty person for her mother. When she got older she wanted to be good again, then bad again and that was pretty much it,

Beautiful Creatures. That was so bad. Great movie, horrible book to movie adaptation

Some times. If it’s the very start of the book or something that’s a little boring than I find myself checking my phone but once I get into it, I’m fine
40.Do you need a room to be silent while you read?
Yes and no. I like certain noise levels

Samantha Shannon. I would be so honoured to interview her

I don’t think I’m cool enough to be friends with anyone who’s imagination is THAT amazing but I think Sarah J Maas and I would get on well. We both have a tendency to fan girl
47.What book have you reread the most?
Uh. Probably The Harp at Midnight by Caiseal Mor. I just really love it
48. Which books do you consider “classics”?
The usual like Jane Austin etc. But I would also say something like Harry Potter is a classic. If it’s that popular, I feel it has to be
49. Which books do you think should be taught in every school?
Okay, reading in school made me stop reading for a long time. I HATE being forced to read something. Maybe updating the list would be a good idea. I think we should be reading old and new books in school. I really disliked The Great Gatsby for that reason, but I might have liked it had I read it for pleasure. Maybe add a current NYT Best Seller to the list or Harry Potter. It would certainly encourage more people to do English at school. At least in my opinion.
50. Which books should be banned from all schools?
Non. I mean, obviously we shouldn’t have things like Fifty Shades in a room full of 8 year olds but I think if the book isn’t offensive (raciest, homophobic etc.) then it should be available. Books teach us things, they’re important. They help us. Why should we not have books?
