1. What are you reading right now? Tell us about it!
I'm reading Serena, getting ready for the Twitter party, I'm not done with it yet, But I'm hoping to join in on the discussion. :) 

The year is 1929, and newlyweds George and Serena Pemberton travel from Boston to the North Carolina mountains where they plan to create a timber empire. Although George has already lived in the camp long enough to father an illegitimate child, Serena is new to the mountains—but she soon shows herself to be the equal of any man, overseeing crews, hunting rattle-snakes, even saving her husband's life in the wilderness. Together this lord and lady of the woodlands ruthlessly kill or vanquish all who fall out of favor. Yet when Serena learns that she will never bear a child, she sets out to murder the son George fathered without her. Mother and child begin a struggle for their lives, and when Serena suspects George is protecting his illegitimate family, the Pembertons' intense, passionate marriage starts to unravel as the story moves toward its shocking reckoning.

Rash's masterful balance of violence and beauty yields a riveting novel that, at its core, tells of love both honored and betrayed - from Goodreads

2. What was your favorite series to read when you were a kid?
I think I fell in love reading The Magic Tree House books when I was in like 2nd grade. I also loved all Ramona books, I couldn't wait to go to the library and check some out. Then as I got a little older I began reading The Babysitters Club. 

3. The world is ending: What 3 books do you save from your collection in hopes to contribute to whatever new society forms?
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald,  Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, and Shakespeare  

4. What is your favorite genre to read? Why?
I am open to every genre as long as it can transport me to the story. 

5. If you wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
Remember to never forget. This question was hard.. I would choose this title because I never want to forget where I come from, the people in my life, the struggle and the achievement I've had, and the lesson what I've learned. 

6. What is next on your “to-read” list? Tell us about it!
This book has been on my TBR since it came out in August, and I was finally able to get my hands on it. 

You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…

Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town… until River West comes along. River rents the guest house behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. 

Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more?

Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery... who makes you want to kiss back. 

Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.

Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch - from Goodreads
