Three Things About Deanna:

  1. I once drove the wrong way down a one way street in Bellingham, WA. The first thing I did when I realized it was yell, “I love me!” That phrase stuck for a few years and my friends and I would say it whenever we did something stupid. (Luckily, it was early on a Sunday morning when I did this and I could easily turn into a business’ parking lot to turn around.)
  2. Everyone calls me Deanna. Very few people shorten this into a nickname. There are a very few people who call me “Dea” – interestingly enough, they’re all male.
  3. I try to be a really honest person and go with the truth 99% of the time. Lying always catches up with you. Which makes the next fact pretty funny to me. One of my closest friends would call me in college to help her come up with lies because mine were always believable.

Amy’s Questions:

1.Why did you start a blog?

It was something I had been throwing around in my mind for a while. My friends encouraged me to go ahead and do it because I was always recommending books they loved to them.

2.What are you most proud of in your life?

My daughter. She’s going to be 9 in a couple of weeks, and I’m so proud of the little person she’s become. I know part of it’s her personality, but I would like to think all the time I’ve spent with her since she was born has helped shape her. If I do one thing important in life, it’s raising her to be a good person.

3.What’s the last film you watched and did you enjoy it?

So we’re watching all of the Star Wars movies at our house right now. My daughter’s really interested in them. The last one I watched with them was Attack of the Clones. I hate to say it, but I didn’t really enjoy it all that much. I’ve watched all of them except Revenge of the Sith. This trilogy within the franchise is my least favorite.

If you could have any super power, what would it be?

To stop myself from saying stupid things in awkward situations!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hmm…I see myself doing a lot of what I’m doing now. I guess that’s how it is an adult with a child. I’m sure I’ll be working full time, running her to all her activities and spending time with the family. I wish I had something more exciting to say.


My Questions:

  1. Who is your favorite female popstar and why?
  2. What is the funnest thing you’ve ever done?
  3. Where is the coolest place you’ve ever been?
  4. If you could have one and one author’s ARCs who would it be?
  5. What celebrity do you think you look the most like?

  1. I tried to comment earlier but don’t think it worked. Sorry if you end up with duplicate comments from me – feel free to delete one!

    I wanted to thank you for tagging me and to say not to feel bad about not liking Attack of the Clones. A lot of Episodes 1-3 is bad – especially the dialogue. You know a film’s bad when Ewan McGregor can’t save it! haha!

  2. I’ve driven the wrong way down one-way streets as well! I hate one way streets haha. Thanks for nominating me! I’m just going to answer the questions here because I’m feeling blog-slumpy right now:

    1. Who is your favorite female popstar and why?
    Taylor Swift. I can’t help it. I’m a T-Swift fan!

    2. What is the funnest thing you’ve ever done?
    Oh geeze. I don’t know. I’m a sit inside and read by myself kind of girl.

    3. Where is the coolest place you’ve ever been?
    I went to Israel once. I unfortunately didn’t appreciate it enough at the time because it was during a time in my life when my anxiety was really beginning to become a prominent part of my life and I felt completely terrified and on edge the whole time we were there. It was definitely the coolest place, though, looking back.

    4. If you could have one and one author’s ARCs who would it be?
    Pierce Brown! Especially because now his next book that was supposed to be out in August is pushed back to next year 🙁

    5. What celebrity do you think you look the most like?
    I really don’t think any. When I was a kid my grandma used to tell me I looked like Haley Mills haha. I never saw it…
