Somebody posted this book questionnaire thats going around the internet on Goodreads. While I was hyped up I filled it out last night. Enjoy!

1 - The best book you read last year: On the Jellicoe Road

2 - A book you've read more than 3 times:
Alanna  The First Adventure (Song of the Lioness, #1) quartet. It's my happy place series.

3 - Your favourite series: Gosh which day are we talking? Harry Potter is the classic answer.
Harry Potter Boxed Set (Harry Potter, #1-6)

4 - A guilty pleasure book: Soulless (okay I’m not that guilty, but I blush when I read this book. It makes me feel like such a girl!)
Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate, #1)

5 - A book that made you laugh: You had me at magical donut.
Hex Hall (Hex Hall, #1)

6 - A book that made you cry: Harry Potter, the last 3, incessantly. (On a siden-ote Roswell the TV show made me cry today. And I am not a crier!)\

13 - Your favorite author: Melina Marchetta

14 - Favorite male character: So many men. So little time. Going with an oldie but goodie. George from the Alanna seris. (Though Peeta & the yummy bread gave him a run for his money, as did Lord Maccon in a kilt)
Alanna  The First Adventure (Song of the Lioness, #1)

15 - Favorite female character: October Daye
Rosemary and Rue (October Daye, #1)

21 - Favorite book from your childhood: Snug the Bug (it was a reversible book)

22 - A book you can't wait for: Hex Hall 3 SQUEEEL
Untitled (Hex Hall, #3)

23 - A book you've been meaning to read for ages:
Clariel  The Lost Abhorsen (Abhorsen, #4) (So yes I misread this question as WAITING not meaning. I'm waiting for the next Ahborsen book from Garth Nix)

24 - A book that you wish more people would read:
Sabriel (Abhorsen,  #1)

25 - Character you are most similar to: Is there a character who has no social life, reads books, gardens and knits? Seriously I’m really dull. Can I say Sophie just because I want to kiss on Archer? Not that it would happen in real life. Maybe I’ll be Madge who does nothing interesting but be nice and then dies. Because that’s my kind of luck. Actually she may do something halfway interesting, but not interesting enough that I remember it near midnight.

26 - A book that changed your opinion about something: A Walk in the Woods by Billy Bryson (Maybe not so much change my opinions but educate me on some subjects)
A Walk in the Woods  Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

27 - Most surprising plot twist or ending: I’m saying Harry Potter or Demonglass (because honestly I suck at remembering tonight)
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Harry Potter, #7)Demonglass (Hex Hall, #2)

28 - Favorite book title:
Please Ignore Vera Dietz (Haven't even read this. Next on my to read pile)

29 - A book everyone hated but you liked:
The Golden Compass (His Dark Materials, #1) (someone else said this yay)

30 - Your favorite book OF ALL TIME:
Gosh not much pressure there. At the moment I would say Jellicoe Road. But let’s say Ender’s Game too for goo measure.
On the Jellicoe RoadEnder's Game (Ender's Saga, #1)

I repeated a LOT of books in there. Kinda odd really. It's late I'm not going to worry that I'm boring because I probably am.
