Meet our writers–Q&A with Danyelle Hunnicutt

SOTP:   Why did you start reviewing?

Danyelle:  I began reviewing books because I was the only one in my home that enjoyed reading, let alone discussing what I read, so I used my reviews as an outlet to avoid driving my sister crazy from book talk. The first book I remember reviewing is actually A Woman Called Sage by Diann Mills.

SOTP: Have your tastes changed since you started reviewing?

Danyelle:  My taste in books has morphed from pure historical romance to a very wide array of topics but my favorite seems to be fantasy novels. For now at least.

SOTP: What book has surprised you the most in your reviewing (Perhaps something you wouldn’t normally have picked up, outside of your comfort genre, etc.)

Danyelle:  I think the book that has surprised me the most is Caleb-Seven by James Andrew Wilson. Self-published authors are always a gamble and so I normally avoid them, but this book was one of the best fantasies I’ve read and I was completely taken aback by how much I enjoyed it.

SOTP: What is the first book you remember reading? (It still counts if someone else read it to you if you were too young to read!)

Danyelle:  The first memories I have of reading involve Stella Luna, Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein, but the first one has to be The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It was either before I could for myself or just when I starting to be able to and I know that that book was the catalyst that started my love of books.

SOTP: If you’re stuck at home on a sick day, what comfort book can you count on to always cheer you up?

Danyelle:  When I’m sick at home I can always count on a romance, particularly a historical, to cheer me up. Any book that is full of hope and love makes any cold bearable.

SOTP:   If you could only read one book for the rest of your life (I know, the horror!), which book do you think you could read a hundred times without getting bored of it?

Danyelle:  The Bible. I could spend the rest of my life reading that book because no matter how many times I read it I still discover new things about it or get a new perspective that allows me to view a situation differently. It’s so multifaceted and each book has applications in my walk as a Christian.
