Happy Friday everyone! Today we're welcoming Kendare Blake, author of Anna Dressed in Blood and the sequel, Girl of Nightmares for another edition of Reverse Author Interviews! The Anna books are really great ghost stories, and if you haven't read them, I highly recommend you do! If you're new to this event, the ladies of BookMunchies decided that during the month of April we would let the authors turn the tables on us and ask bloggers questions instead of us questioning them. It's been so fun getting to know what our favorite authors want to know about their readers!
So on to the questions:
KB: Serious question: How do you as bloggers feel about the decline of big box book retailers like Borders and Barnes and Noble. Not that Barnes and Noble is going to die! But if it did! Discuss.
C@FCB: First off, my local Borders closed and I miss it terribly. It's about location, and I also really loved the set up way better than the nearest (though not as close) Barnes and Noble. I support independent bookstores, and I visit them as much as I can. But there aren't any very close to me, probably because there are several big B&Ns around. I love going to bookstores. I would almost always rather have a book in my hand than be reading something on my Nook. Though it is handy for travel and for those late nights when I just need something new to read. So if it's a question of not having a bookstore around where I can go browse and pick up physical copies of books, then I'll be terribly sad. I do my fair share of online shopping as well, but I'll be sad to see bookstores go by the wayside. If it's a matter of big box booksellers bring overrun by indie sellers, I can take it.
KB: Not so serious question: As book bloggers, what is your most hated book/book character, and how would you prank them? Conversely, name a favorite, and describe how you would profess your love and get them to hang out with you.
C@FCB: Most hated character....well, the first one that comes to mind is President Snow from The Hunger Games series. And I would totally pull a classic prank like nair in the shampoo or something. Haha...bald President Snow. Awesome. I'd also do something really mean to Eric from Divergent. I hate him a lot too. I can't think of anything mean enough that would leave him alive (tripping him over the chasm...heheheheh). The prank I've always wanted to do is to put all the office supplies in jello! That just cracks me up! I could do that to Jeanine from Divergent. How crazy would she go if all of her stuff was in jello?
