SOTP: When did you start reviewing, and what is the first book you remember reviewing?
Megan: About a year and a half ago, my review of Cress by Marissa Myer was one of my first to hit the internet.
SOTP: Have your reading tastes changed since you started reviewing?
Megan: It’s about the same. I still enjoy a story where there’s something to figure out, dystopians are still a must read, and anything with a happily-ever-after holds a place in my reader’s heart.
SOTP: What book has surprised you the most in your time reviewing? (Perhaps something you wouldn’t normally have picked up, outside of your comfort genre, etc)
Megan: Historical Romances. I never used to be a huge fan, but now I find myself walking out of a bookstore with one in hand.
SOTP: What’s the first book you remember reading? (It still counts if someone else read it to you if you were too young to read!)
Megan: I didn’t appreciate fiction until just a few years ago. The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield started it all.
SOTP: If you’re stuck at home on a sick day, what comfort book can you count on to always cheer you up?
Megan: Well, I’ve never actually read a published book more than once, but Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay, Sway by Amy Matayo, and The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson sure have been tempting me to read them again.
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?
Megan: The Bible. 🙂
