Interview with Myself: Blogging Extravaganza
This post is part of the Get Up Offa That Slump: A Blogging Extravaganza, hosted by Rachel at Beauty and the Bookshelf. I'm so happy she created this topic as I've been in a blogging slump lately (or maybe just too busy) but the topics listed got me excited to write posts, so I decided to jump in. Today is day one, an interview with yourself.
Katie: So, what's your name?
Katie: Aurora according to my old high school Spanish teacher. But really its Katie. Same as yours, what a coincidence!
Katie: Yeah, I've gotten that once or twice.. Umm well I'm actively reading A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab. But I've also been reading Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce and Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson.
K: That's three books your reading...do you normally read a few books at a time?
Katie: I am a polygamous reader...there I've said it. I've admitted it. I didn't used to be, but I am now, and honestly? I'm okay with it. I get to pick up whatever book I'm in the mood for. And I have more than one book to look forward to jumping back into.
K: Interesting. So what do you do when you're not reading?
Katie: Most of my time is taken up by my two little boys. Here, my youngest one would like to say something....nntdkj nv nicv. I think he was saying nice to meet you. He has quite a bit more to say to you since he's still trying to get the keyboard. He'll be six months in just a couple weeks. Now my older son has something he wants to say, or rather "wants to push the buttons"...iuytr\ttttttttttttt heilo. He wanted to say hello so I told him the letters to find. That uppercase "I" looks like a lowercase "l" hence hello with an "i". heilo! haha, he's 3 years old. He's smart, goofy, and also a threenager.
K: Did you intentionally avoid talking about yourself there?
Katie: uhhhh, no? Well, you see, I'm terrible about talking about myself. Also, the boys were asking for my attention there.
K: Okay..Let's try it this way, just answer these questions with what comes to your head.
Katie: um, okay. Let's do this!
Katie: Sorry. I'm ready.
K: What cd do you have in your cd player right now?
Katie: Adele - 25.
K: Last book you bought?
Katie: Thats a tie between Six of Crows and These Vicious Masks.
K: Favorite hobby?
K: Obviously...haha, anything else?
Katie: Crafting, coloring and knitting.
K: Favorite tv show?
Katie: New Girl. The Shannara Chronicles was excellent, I'm already dying for season two.
K: What's the first thing you do when you wake up?
Katie: Open my eyes.
K: And thennnn...
Katie: Check on the boys. Then I MUST brush my teeth.
K: What's your drink of choice?
Katie: Sparkling water. It helps me drink more water throughout the day.
K: Favorite food?
Katie: Crab legs. Also cheese and fruit.
K: Okay let's do a couple bookish ones, since this is a book blog after all.
Katie: Okay, I'm ready.
K: Last five star read?
Katie: Me Before You! I saw the trailer and immediately had to pick up the book and read it.
K: Favorite book series?
Katie: That's not fair, next question please.
K: uh, you're just supposed to answer what first comes to your head.
Katie: I did. I was bombarded with all the ones I love.
K: Are you saying your books talk to you?
Katie: Sometime they do. Calling to me to read them. Or think of them.
K: hmm. Moving on, what did you check out from the library most recently?
Katie: The Girl From Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
K: I've heard good things about that one. Well I think that's all for today. Thank you for the interview.
Katie: Me too! I'm excited to read it. Oh, great! Thanks for interviewing me, this was fun!
