Featured this week:
Winged Reviews, a book blog by Alison and Daphne. The site will mainly feature book reviews by us both, as well as weekly memes, blog tours and other random book-related excitement. Hope you enjoy your stay!
1. In Between Writing and Reading what do you like to do?
Daphne: I watch copious amounts of television! I also love to shop, eat out and spend time with my friends and boyfriend.
Ali: I am a big TV watcher too. I love Star Trek, Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory, True Blood and other such supernatural TV shows. Also love going to the cinema and having games nights with my fiance and my friends!
2. Convince me to join your blog twitter style. 140 Characters or less. GO!
3. A Fruit. A Vegetable. A Soda
Daphne: Cherries. Broccoli. Iced Tea (fizzy drinks make my mouth go funny).
Ali: Raspberries. Carrots. Diet coke!
4. Subject A comes from under a rock and finds Subject B and wants a recommendation for a good book. What should Subject B recommend?
Daphne: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It's got everything I love in a book and more: superb writing, amazing POV character, humour and heart. If you haven't read it yet, you are missing out!
Ali: Difficult question. Waaay too many. So I'll cheat and go for two. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Divergent by Veronica Roth. Both epically awsome stories that started my love of all things dystopia.
5. Upcoming release you are most exited about?
Daphne: The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan, probably because I'm waiting for my pre-order to make it's way through the mail as I write this. The final book in The Kane Chronicles series, which mixes Egyptian Mythology with modern day YA adventure. Rick Riordan is a master at this, I wish he was around when I was a kid!
Ali: Again... too many to pick from. But I would have to say The Traitor Queen by Trudi Canavan. The third and final book in the Traitor Spy trilogy that I have been waiting (inpatiently) for over a year for now.. I love traditional fantasy and Trudi is one of my favourite authors. Her Black Magician Trilogy is one of my favourites and this new series is seriously awsome too. I need to know how it ends!!
6. YA Character you have the biggest crush on?
Daphne: Peeta Mellark from The Hunger Games series. I even made a website tribute to him while waiting for Mockingjay to come out! I still wish he was played by another actor in the movies though *coughHunterParrishcough*, but as long as they stay true to his awesomeness, then I'm happy.
Ali: Oh this is easy. Prince Ash from the awsome Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa. Who doesn't love a brooding faery prince!!
