We should all have some fun and get to know one another. I can’t wait to read your replies!

My name is Samantha James. I was born and raised in California. It is a beautiful state and I would not want to live anywhere else. My family is rather large and fairly close. I have one dog named Emily, one cat named Max, and one pet rabbit named Bunny Foo. Foo. Animals are awesome. I work full time and have many personal responsibilities. My favorite pastimes are reading, writing, and swimming.

Question #1: Favorite movie? 

My favorite movie is definitely Gone With The Wind. I set aside time every year to watch it at least once. I first discovered it about five years ago and just fell in love. It is hard to put into words the reason behind such feelings. I just get so caught up with the hardship, realness, history, and romance it offers.

Question #2: Favorite TV show?

That is easily The Tudors by Showtime. I am a history fanatic and obsessed with Henry VIII and the Tudor era. I realize that the show is not factual based in a lot of ways and highly dramatized; however, that is why I love the show. It is four seasons long and just epic. My favorite character is Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk. The role is played by none other than Henry Cavill. That is right. Let me say here and now for the record, I loved Cavill long before he ever was Superman. I am an original fan and will forever remain so. Been in love for years. It is a great show worth checking out!

Question #3: Favorite Book Boyfriend?

I had to think about this for a while and was coming up short. Options included Belgarath from David Edding’s Belgarion series, Dimitri Belikov from Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series, or Troy Tatterton from V. C. Andrews’s Casteel series. These men are excellent options and all have unique qualities; however, it occurred to me the answer was right in front of me. He is John Reid from the novel Time Enough For Drums by Ann Rinaldi. I had just recently read the book and have a review coming soon about it. He is hands down right now my favorite book boyfriend. He is loyal, fierce, and has a sense of duty. John is also a gentleman. It is without an ounce of doubt my number one choice. Jemima is the main character and is the love interest of John. The story between them is so cute! I don’t want to say more because I have a full review to be posted in the immediate future. Please stay tuned for that.

Question #4: Favorite Song?

My favorite song is easily Even If It Breaks Your Heart by Eli Young Band. I simply adore the lyrics and melody. It is such a moving and uplifting song that just sticks with you. Eli Young Band members are talented. Each is an amazing artist. The band is my favorite when it comes to soul music. It goes without saying that I am a huge country music fan and that is my favorite genre. The song is just good.

Question #5: Favorite Book Hero

America Singer from The Selection series by Kiera Cass is the character that is standing out in my mind at this moment. She is strong, realistic, and definitely a hero. She is a young girl who despite her intentions of flying under the radar when she is thrust into a situation not of her choosing single handily takes down an injustice governmental system and corrupt king. Lights the world on fire while fighting for the love of a prince on national TV. America does exactly what is right according to her moral compass and all else can be damned. Why I love her!

Thank you so much for reading this post. I hope everyone has enjoyed my answers. I recently decided to begin buying books because I realized there wasn’t many books I actually owned. There are tons of E-Books on my tablet. I have been an E-Reader for so long I forgotten how cool physical copies of a book can be. So today I picked up the first of many in my new book collection. My friend bought me a beautiful bookmark to go along with the book I purchased at Barnes & Noble. I decided to get a book titled And I Darken by Kiersten White. Pictures Below!
