Who is your all-time favorite book character?
Rachel: I would have to say Cate from The Assassin Game by Kirsty McKay. She is the most relatable, I-would-do-the-exact-same-thing-as-her character I’ve ever read but honestly this was so hard I’d probably change my answer if you asked me ten minutes from now.
Meg: Mine is June Iparis from the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu. That trilogy is one of my favorites of all time and June is so logical, strong, and family-oriented.
Abby: I’ll say Adrian Everheart from the Renegades trilogy by Marissa Meyer. He is such a sweetheart, while still being a full, interesting character. I will agonize over this question for weeks now.
If you were stranded on a desert island, which book would you take with you? (Survival books do not count)
R: Considering the emotional and physical stress, I’d have to bring my comfort novel which is Little Women. There’s nothing as nostalgic or that would make me feel more at home.
M: Excluding the #1 bestseller of all time, I would bring Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen because I really enjoyed reading it the first time and I think that I would enjoy it even more if I got to slow down and read it again.
A: I would bring Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Even though Half-Blood Prince is my favorite, I think it would be most comforting to have the conclusion with me.
What’s your most unpopular book opinion?
R: I rarely read fantasy or dystopian books. I find them to be generic and feel that they fall very easily into tropes I don’t really like.
M: I don’t like John Green’s books. I find his characters generally unrelatable and unrealistic. My sisters already hate on me enough for this.
A: The Twilight series was entertaining to read and slightly younger people (my sisters) are missing out.
What’s your weirdest bookish habit?
R: I’m not sure this is weird but I read a very eclectic mix of books at once. I’ll switch from a biography of JFK to the latest John Green to An Ember in the Ashes within the same month.
M: I read books really fast and then sometimes can’t even remember that I’ve read them until I start them again.
A: I can’t read with the dust jacket on a book. I take them off, which is sad because they’re normally very pretty.
What character would you bring to a family event as your fake partner?
R: If I were a few years older (and could time travel), I would pick Spencer Northam from Love, Lies, and Spies because he’s both a gentleman with an abundance of land and a handsome spy.
M: I originally chose Jack from Tweet Cute by Emma Lord, but upon further reflection, I would have to go with Maxon from The Selection series. He’s a precious bean and also a prince, which one-ups Rachel’s gentleman.
A: If I were a few years younger, I’d bring Jules Addison from Unearthed. He’s a delightful nerd, sure to be loved by our family.
What made you decide to start a book blog?
We’ve always loved reading and talking about books and thought it would be fun to have a place for our abundant opinions and enthusiastic fangirling.
What about reading and books do you love the most?
Getting to live new lives, experience new adventures, and explore new worlds.
What is your field of study/desired profession/current profession?
R: I am a high school senior planning on studying mechanical engineering next year.
M: I am a junior in college studying computer science.
A: I am a mechanical engineer.
What are some book recommendations that became your favorites/obsessions?
R: Meg and Abby both coerced me into reading the Renegades series and Abby also convinced me to read An Ember in the Ashes. Despite me not typically reading fantasy, I loved both of these series and am glad I took their advice.
M: Abby recommended The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series to me at a young age and they remain a favorite of mine as well as a reliable comfort read. Rachel recommended the These Vicious Masks series to me which I actually really need to re-read.
A: Meg is a binge-reader, so she recommends a lot of books to me, which is super convenient because we have similar tastes. Just a few that I loved—House of Salt and Sorrows, the Rebel of the Sands series, and the His Fair Assassin series.
What is the book you shove down everyone’s throat?
R: These Vicious Masks, Little Women, and The Assassin Game are the main three I’ve pushed people to read but really only my sisters because I don’t recommend books a ton to other people.
M: The Legend trilogy. I just want people to love the story like I love the story.
A: Everything by Amie Kaufman. I’m re-reading Illuminae right now which will renew my will to badger people into reading it. Also, Harry Potter. Always.
