9. I have a brown miniature poodle named Cinnamon.

11. I enjoy writing!


Questions to answer:

1) Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging because of my love of reading. I would always finish a book and want to talk about it with someone, so I decided to blog. Also, there are significantly less people who read today and I really wanted to help more people to read. I also wished to help those who do read to expand their horizons. I actually began blogging in a joint blog (called Pages in Paris) with a few of my friends. However, for a variety of reasons, we decided to retire that blog. I didn’t want to stop there because I loved blogging so I created a new one. The result: The Novelty of Life.

2) Which one of your favorite characters would you choose to be and why?

I would choose Ginny Weasley from Harry Potter because of her bravery, strength and magical powers (why not?).

3) What is your favorite post to write about?

I really love writing reviews. It might be a bit cliche for an answer, but I genuinely enjoy giving my thoughts on a book I read.

4) Do you have any bookish pet peeves?

I hate having to put a book down in the middle of a chapter.

5) When did you become an avid reader?

I have always loved reading. I can not remember a time when I did not love to read.

6) How do you organize your bookshelves?

Erm, the stack, cram, and shove method?

7) Do you write stories or books? If so, which authors influence your writing?

I do write stories and books in my free time. I suppose Ally Carter and Sarah Dessen influence my writing style, but it’s hard to say.

8) How many book boyfriends do you have?

Too many.

9) Which fictional character do you most relate to?

I haven’t read this book yet (although I probably will read it next), but I did see the movie. I would say Catherine from Northanger Abbey  by: Jane Austen.

10) What are some of your favourite TV shows and why?

I don’t really have any specific TV show I follow. I kind of just watch any that seem interesting when I’m scrolling through the guide.

11) If you could turn back time to one memory in your life, what memory would you choose and why?

Interesting question! I can’t really answer this though because I can’t choose one specific memory.


My questions:

1. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? Why?

2. What book did you dislike that many people liked?

3. If someone were to ask you why it is important to read,what would you say?

4. What is your favorite reading spot?

5. When did you begin blogging?

6. If you could meet any author, who would you choose to meet?

7. Do you prefer ebooks or hard copies? Why?

8. What is your favorite book? Why?

9. What is your least favorite book? Why?

10. If you had to get rid of all of your books except for five, which five would you keep?

11. What is the reasoning behind your blog’s title?

  1. Lovely post, Kathy 🙂 I would either be a Hufflepuff or a Ravenclaw, leaning more towards Ravenclaw.

    • Thank you! Yes, I have been told I would either be a Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw (but I personally think I’d be Hufflepuff)

  2. Kathy, I greatly appreciate the nomination! I have been traveling a lot over the summer and haven’t had a chance to follow-up with you. Like you, I started blogging as a way to discuss the books I read with others who have similar interests. You’ve posed some great questions that I will have to think about and I’ll get back to you when I’m able to share my responses. 🙂
