  8. Would you ever go to comic con? If yes, what would you dress up as? I don't exactly know what a comic con is, but I am assuming it is a place where you dress up as characters from comic books... I wouldn't go because I am not as interested in comics as I am in normal novels

  3. Congratulations on getting your very first blog award!! :) And FYI, I cannot STAND soda. Considering your favorite drink is Vanilla Coke, I just wanted to get that out there. Let the "WHAT THE HECK? WHO DOESN'T LIKE SODA" commence. Anyway, best of luck to your book, and hopefully it can get published soon! :) My favorite author is Julie Kagawa, because she got me into reading and blogging, so I guess we're alike—kind of—on that front. :)
