4) What Genre Have You Read Most This Year? Historical Fiction, 18 in all!

5) What Genre Have You Read Least This Year? Contemporary, 3 in all.

6) What Genre Do You Want To Read More Of? Fairy Tales! I've only read five fairy tales this year, and I LOVE fairy tales! Happily, I'm just two books in to the A FAIRY TALE RETOLD series by Regina Doman, and have them all requested at the library! *grins*

7) How Many Books Have You Read This Year, And What's Your Goal? 58 and my goal is 120!

8) What's The Last Book You Bought? Mardan's Mark by Kathrese McKee. It's lovely! I confess, I did like the old cover better, but this one is good too! And the story inside is awesome!! ^_^

9) What Book Are You Saving Up To Buy Next? Defy by Tricia Mingerink probably. Book three to this amazing Christian fantasy series! I loved it, and can't wait to have it sitting next to the rest on my bookshelf!

12) What's A Series You'd Recommend to Everyone? ILYON CHRONICLES by Jaye L. Knight. I seriously do recommend this series to all people ... and so far, they've all loved it! ^_^

13) Who's An Author You're Hoping Writes More? Jan Watson. I haven't seen any new releases from her in awhile, but I loved her two series and companion novels that went with them! Such rich historical! The characters are still on my mind and I want to see more of them!
