But beyond this nerdy book holiday, I’m also celebrating1-yearIt’s rare that I stick with hobbies–I often change my likes every six months or so and pick up something completely new and random–but The Hopeful Heroine is something I really enjoy! Mostly because of you guys–I love chatting about books with you and getting to share my passion!
So in honor of today, I’m going to so something a little fun thanks to Jamie over at the Perpetual Page Turner. She’s often been my inspiration for a lot of fun things on the blog and today is no different.
Today, I’m going back to my teenage years with an

Fictional Character You Probably Would Have Actually Dated In High School:

Wes from The Truth About Forever. I have a thing for brooding artists and tattoos.

Daughter or Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

“If you dare nothing, then when the day is over, nothing is all you will have gained.”
-Neil Gaimen, The Graveyard Book

Reading Regret:

That I’m always super behind on the “it” YA book. Honestly, I love YA as much as MG but I tend to neglect the older books—I wish I could balance the two genres better AND try to be more up to date on all the awesome YA that’s  being published. (For instance–STILL haven’t read Under the Never Sky.)

The Giver quartet by Lois Lowry. Even though it’s one of my most favorite banned books, would you believe that I’ve never read the three companion novels?!

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, & anything Nancy Drew by Caroline Keene

Harry Potter. I credit my head to Hermione and my heart to Luna.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth. OH. MY. GOSH…I cannot wait to finish this series!

Your latest book purchase:

Ugh. Textbooks.

ZZZ-snatcher book (last book that kept you up WAY late):
