1. What’s your name?
Well HI! I'm Sam! Which is short for Samantha incase you didn't know, but I hate being called Samantha sooo lets just go with Sam.
2. Where in the world are you blogging from?
I'm here from the lovely USA!
3. How did you get into blogging in the first place?
I've loved reading ever since I was a kid, and I started out by discovering the Booktube world through a Divergent fan page I had created on Instagram. After I found the Booktube world it led me to the blogging world, where I would stalk a couple of my favorite blogs for months before I finally decided to try and make one myself. Before blogging I did Booktubing but I was so awkward and I would just say the same things over and over and setting up for videos, recording videos, and editing videos is just like, insanely time consuming, so we put an end to that and HERE I AM!
4. How did you come up with your blog name?
Hmm...I actually think my mom came up with it? I came up with my original name, REBEL BOOKS by myself by just googling "adjectives" and then finding one I felt fit with books, but when I was looking to purchase a domain I asked my mom for suggestions and she gave me this name.
5. What genre do you read and review the most on your blog?
6. What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews?
I try to do discussions, and I sometimes participate in memes and blog tours. I am definitely not the most creative person so it's kind of hard for me to come up with cool stuff. oH WAIT. I actually do this thing called Bookish Food where I take books that have a very big food presence and I put in quotes of all the times the foods are mentioned and I find pictures to go along with the descriptions. Just to make everyone insanely hungry *evil laughs*
7. Best blogging experience so far?
Mmm...I wouldn't say I have one yet!
8. Favorite thing about the blogging community?
That everyone is very nice. People rarely ever ignore tweets and it's fairly easy to strike up a conversation with someone!
9. Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2016!
10. Name the 5 books you want to read this 2016 that you didn’t get to in previous years!
Hmm...I'm not sure actually. Maybe something by Patrick Ness? I usually get to everything I want when I want to.
11. What’s an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read?
YIKES another hard-ish one. I feel like I don't really read many obscure books...but Say What You Will by Cammie McGovern and OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Hadu are some less popular ones I think everyone should read.
12. Which book boy or girl would be your book BFF?
ANOTHER ONE I DON'T KNOW. I think probably Izzy or Clary or Alex from TMI. Basically any of the main characters from The Mortal Instruments. I love them all so much.
13. Which book boy or girl would be your book boyfriend?
I have quite a list here but: Simon Lewis, Noah Shaw, Jem Carstairs, Will Herondale (I'm in a big Cassie Clare phase now) BUT AT THE TOP OF THE LIST IS ALWAYS KAZ BREKKER. ALWAYS. Oh and always the other loves of my life Rowan Whitethorn along with RHYSAND.
14. Who would you recruit for your apocalypse squad (5 characters max)
Okay so I feel like you need people with powers for an apocalypse squad or else you could be killed really easily so I would go with, Magnus Bane because MAGICC, Percy Jackson because more magic and he's like super witty and smart, Celaena Sardothien (do I even need to explain this one), Jace Lightwood because he's super good at battle plans and can also provide the eye candy and he can fight very well and I feel like him and Celaena would make a great team, and HARRY POTTER!!
15. Apart from reading, what are your other hobbies or interests?
I'm a competition dancer so...that. Dance. Yay. My life is basically consumed by dance and reading and school work.
16. Apart from book shopping, what else do you like shopping for?
CLOTHES. Even though I'm actually the worst to go shopping with considering I hate trying everything on, and I love comfy clothes so I'm always in lululemon and my mom is like "SAMANTHA YOU HAVE ENOUGH LULULEMON CLOTHES YOU NEED REAL CLOTHES" and I'm like "MOM THESE ARE REAL CLOTHES. I DON'T WANT TO WEAR JEANS. LEGGINGS ARE COMFORTABLE" My mother hates shopping with me.
17. At a party, the DJ suddenly changes the song – and it’s your song. What song would be playing?
I DONT KNOW. Adele or something EDM probably.
18. Pick out either a book you want turned into a film/TV show, or a film/TV show you want turned into a book.
I would love to see Six of Crows turned into a movie with a script that is WORD FOR WORD AND LINE FOR LINE from the book.
19. What would your dream library look like?
It would be super clean. SUPER SUPER CLEAN. Only hardcover books, except every single series I love in hardback and paperback, my Harry Potter collection all nice and organized with my wands displayed. Nothing really on the shelves except books. All the shelves would be white. and not like fancy white decorative shelves, just like SIMPLE WHITE SHELVES that are sturdy.
20. Author you want to meet and sit down to tea with?
TOO MANY OMG. Okay so I can't even pinpoint a number one person but at the top of this list is Cassandra Clare, Sarah J. Maas, Maggie Stiefvater, and of course Michelle Hodkin because she is the sweetest author ever.
