-Well I don’t really talk that much and so at times I feel that my blog is not really personal and I hate it! I’m a shy person and wish I could be more forward :\
9. Do you prefer a bunch of quick, sweet stand-alone reads or a long drawn out series of epic proportions?

16. Is there a fiction genre you just can’t seem to stand or get into? For me, heavy science fiction is just a no-go.
– I just can’t really seem to get into Historical fiction, it just dose nothing for me.
17. When I say favorite book cover, what’s the first one to come to mind – since I know there probably can’t be just one?

18. What was the series in childhood that got you hooked on reading? For me, my mom forced me to read Little House on the Prairie for school which I ended up loving, and then I found the Redwall series and I just never stopped!
– Well I never liked to read when I was younger, what got me reading what the Twilight series! hahaha funny right? but true ^_^
19. Were you The Quiet Girl Who Was Always Reading, or did you mainly just read at home in secret? 
– I was always the loud mouth girl (depending on my mood) Lol ,now i’m more shyer then I was a few years ago.
20. Do you always read several books at once, or just stick to one at a time? The running joke in my family when I was young was asking me how many books I was reading (usually at least five) and laughing when I could recite the plot for every single one!
– The most I read at one time is 3 books, anything more and they kinda start to blend in :\
21. Favorite book to movie adaption?

Guardian Blurb

Lyla Evans just wants to be left alone; to fly under the radar and not attract attention. After seventeen years, she knows how the game is played. Her parents are hardly ever home, and when they do show up, they’re quick to anger and even quicker with their fists. With foster care comes the threat of being separated from her two younger siblings, and Lyla would die before allowing that to happen. She’s learned to keep her head down and depend on no one but herself and God to get by.

When a strange man starts paying too much attention to her and her siblings, showing up to rescue them and then disappearing without a trace, Lyla begins to panic that everything she’s been hiding is about to come out. But as she slowly becomes friends with Rafael and even trusts him with her deepest fears, Lyla learns he has secrets far bigger than her own that will turn everything in her world upside down.

In this story of abuse and rescue, love and faith, angels and demons, an unlikely friendship grows into a fantastical love story appealing and appropriate for readers young and old alike.
