Mandy’s Questions


1. Favorite Disney character – look at me, I’m not even limiting it to a Princess! Can we call this progress?

I’ve always been an Ariel fan myself. That movie is kind of brilliant.


2. What can always make you laugh?

The hubs. He’s kind of hilarious.


My Lady Jane Signing

3. What is your favorite quote?


4. If you could have any animal in the world (or beyond) as a pet and you knew for sure that it wouldn’t eat you, what would it be?

I just LOVE my little Dachshund. I would have ten of her if I could! The hubs does not agree. LOL.


5. What book do you wish that everyone could read?

This changes on a regular basis, but right now I feel like we could all use a little…


6. Coffee, tea…neither?

Coffee. Unfortunately, I’m allergic to caffeine.


7. What authors are insta-buys for you?

My locals. Kathryn Purdie, Sara B. Larson, Emily King, Ilima Todd, Erin Summerill, Tricia Levenseller, and more!


8. How do you feel about classic books?

LOVE. Classics and YA are my jam. And there are A LOT of classics that are actually YA, but we didn’t used to classify books so much based off of the protagonists age, so people don’t always realize that. Austen’s work is my fav though.


9. What song is stuck in your head right this very minute?

Fall Out Boy’s Boycott Love, because I thought the words were “bike on low” until my brother and the hubs told me otherwise. I encourage you all to listen to it again though, and just try to tell me it doesn’t sound like “bike on low!”


10. And last but not least, what do you think your favorite book of 2017 will be?

I will be beyond amazed if anything tops Caraval!

    Your answers were brilliant. XD And so fun to read. Both your doggie and hubs were great models. Fall Out Boy is the best, and truthfully, I never have any clue what they’re saying, so props for even getting that even though it was a bit off. XD I loved your quote, and oh gosh to your allergy to caffeine. I bet that makes it ridiculously hard for your diet. D: And last but not least, yay for Caraval! I had finally just calmed down on it, but with your rec, my excitement is back. And now my ramblings are complete. Great post! 🙂

    Thank you, thank you! I do love Fall Out Boy, but I can seriously never understand them! LOL. My brothers favorite game is to play their music and see what I think they’re saying. The caffeine allergy is a bummer, but isn’t like epipen severe, so I do sneak it occasionally. And so much YES over Caraval! Are you doing the Twitter chat tonight?

    • Mandy says:

      I really can’t. And as you said, when I go to look it up, I’m always so amazed that’s what they are saying. “Tiffany Blews” literally always throws me, because I think they started putting in words like “Mr. Moth” to test you. Like, I would sit there and say, no way is that what they’re really saying and then of course they are. XD Yay for not being epipen severe! And AH. I think I saw a few things about it, but totally forgot that it was tonight. I think I definitely will be needing to get my butt over there for that.
