Answers to Avid Readers 10 questions:

1. How long have you been a blogger?
I have been blogging since January 2012!!

2. What is your favorite book or series?
Wow, this is a hard question. I have so many favorites! Right now my favorite series would have to be M. Leightons Madly series.

3. Who is your favorite writer?
Again with the hard questions...I have many Jennifer Armentrout, M. Leighton, Samantha Young, Richelle Mead, HM Ward just to name a few. At this very moment I would have to say M. Leighton. I am on Madly overload haha! 

4. If you were in an apocalypse what fictional character would you hope had survived with you? Someone who you think could help you survive. Now don't pick someone just because their hot.
My first thought was Thor...then I was like well its mostly because he's hot haha. So I would have to say Derek from the Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong. He is a fierce young werewolf who would lay his life down on the line for someone. He is also good to have in a fight or if something is coming after us haha!

5. Do you have any pets?
Sadly I do not :(  I have always wanted a puppy...a fat fluffy one to be exact.

Wow...probably the first Harry Potter book when I was 13.

Vampire. It was the Twilight series that really got me going on that genre of books. Since that one I have enjoyed the Black Dagger Brotherhood too :)

I would say YA, Romance, Paranormal Romance. It depends on the day haha.
