One of the favorite features of Book Blogger Appreciation Week is the interview swap! My interview partner this year is Jennifer from YA Book Nerd. Jennifer is a YA librarian and reads a ton of different books. Check out her blog and my interview here.
Question 1: You write Austen fanfic. If Jane Austen lived today, what subject do you think she'd major in at university?
Jen: Probably English/writing, but I think she might minor in theater as she loved putting on plays with her family.Question 2: What's your favorite bookmark? (Plus a picture if possible!)
Jen: I adore bookmarks. As a librarian, I purchase some, I make them, and authors send them to me. I love how unique each of them are. There are times when I use a princess bookmark if I'm reading a princess story or a food bookmark (maybe scratch and sniff) if I'm reading a book about food. This one, featuring the adult series of Sarah MacLean is gorgeous to the eye. Plus the texture is amazing. It's simply perfect. [Tasha: Sarah MacLean does have really nice bookmarks.]
Question 3: If you could live in any era, which one would it be?
Jen: It's a toss up between Regency England and Renaissance ItalyQuestion 4: What's your favorite book of the year so far?
Jen: Tough question. The two that have stuck out most in my mind and I'm telling everyone to read are Grave Mercy and Throne of Glass.Question 5: What is something that you would never, ever consider reading?
Jen: 50 Shades of Grey - it's just not my thing.Question 6: If you could redesign the cover of your favorite book of all time using just one symbol, what would it be? (Question inspired by Picky Girl's post here.)
Jen: Hard to say, but I would choose a letter/note for the cover of Pride and Prejudice.Question 7: You like to put fun facts at the end of some of your reviews. What's a fun fact about you that your regular readers might not know?
Jen: In the movie Sabrina, she quotes Gertrude Stein "America is my country and Paris is my hometown." I feel that way about Bath, England. I spent a semester in college there. It's been a little more than 10 years since I've been back but I'm hoping to go early next year.
