Debby @ Always Booking, Asked:

Coffee or Tea?

Tea, I love tea and drink it pretty much daily. I really want to be a coffee person but I just don’t like the taste as much.

Theo @ Reading and Rambling, Asked:

What’s your absolute least favorite character you have EVER read?

Trust me there are definitely quite a few and it’s hard to pick between them for the absolute worst! I’m probably going to have to go with Zoe Redbird from the House of Night series, she was like Bella Swan but waaaay worse. It was constant stupid decisions!

Meghan @ Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews, Asked:

What helped inspire you to create your blog name? 

So my friends are constantly teasing me for being “sassy” all the time, mostly it’s my tone when I’m being sarcastic (which is kind of a lot) so that’s why I went with the Sassy part of my blog name. Then of course I love books and I fully embrace my geekiness (with all things from movies to video games) so Book Geek!

Lilly @ Lair of Books, Asked:

Which new to you 2017 debut author are you most interested in following into 2018?

There were SO many but I’m gonna have to go with Angie Thomas, her book “The Hate U Give” was perfection and her writing is amazing. Super excited for her book this year “On the Come Up”!

Kayla @ Kayla’s Book Nook, Asked:

Have you ever taken the Myers Briggs personality test? If so, what was your result?

Yes, I am INFJ.

What is your Hogwarts house and do you own any merchandise pertaining to it?

Ravenclaw and I do have a shirt but I’m definitely wanting to get a lot more merch!

Jessica @ The Awkward Book Blogger, Asked:

If you could trade places with one character in any book, who would you trade places with?

Definitely Eowyn from “The Lord of the Rings” because she is a badass!

What is your favorite bookish item that you own (bookish shirts, mugs, prints, jewelry, etc.)?

Probably my canvas print of the Marauder’s Map that I have hanging on my wall, it’s gorgeous and of course I want to fill my space with Harry Potter related items…

What is one skill you’d like to learn (fictional or real life)?

Sword-fighting, more on the fictional side of things though.

Aria @ Snow White Hates Apples, Asked: 

What’s your most favorite and least favorite literary trope?

Favorite: Forbidden Romance

Least Favorite: Insta-love (it’s just so unrealistic, I like a slow burn romance!)

Kristin @ Kristin Kraves Books, Asked:

Who would you want to write your autobiography?

Jay Kristoff, he’s my favorite author, and his writing is gorgeous. Also I feel like he could really embellish my autobiography….by adding swords and thunder tigers…..

Jess @ Beaucoupbooks, Asked:

Any advice for newbie bloggers?

I feel like I always give the same advice but it’s because it’s the best advice I feel I can give. So newbie bloggers: do not be afraid to interact with other bloggers! If they have 5 followers or 5,000 followers we all love chatting with each other so go for it!

And what was your favorite read of 2017?

Probably “Red Rising” by Pierce Brown, it had everything I love in a book!

Kelly @ Just Another Book in the Wall, Asked:

What made you decide to start blogging?

Well back in 2015 I finally joined Goodreads and while I was reading reviews and searching for new books I discovered book bloggers! Of course I didn’t really know much about it then but I figured what better way to express my love of books than to start my own? Plus I actually get to talk about them now, as I don’t really have any IRL family or friends that read.

And, who is your current favorite book blogger?

Destiny @ Howling Libraries, she’s not only super sweet and supportive but I’m always looking forward to her reviews and posts!

Orangutan Librarian, Asked:

Which book world would you most like to live in?

Hands down Middle Earth! I’d get all the adventure but also be relatively safe too, haha!

Misty @ Misty’s Book Space, Asked:

What was you favorite and least favorite read of 2017?

Favorite: Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Least Favorite: The Devils You Know by M.C. Atwood

What book are you most looking forward to reading in 2018?

I have to say I’m most looking forward reading “The Cruel Prince” since it is super hyped and everyone seems to love it!

Anna @ My Bookish Dream, Asked:

-Which fantasy world would you love to live in? What would you like to do there?

Middle Earth, for sure! As far as what I would do there…hmmm. I’d probably act like a tourist to be honest going and seeing the Shire, Edoras, and Minas Tirith. Also I would probably hunt down Legolas and cling to him.

-And which one would you definitely stay away from? Why?

Probably the world of “An Ember in the Ashes” because it is extremely brutal and I would more than likely not survive whatsoever!

Amanda @ Metal Phantasm Reads, Asked:

What’s a movie or music album you’re looking forward to this year?

I’m not really big into music albums but as for movies I’m probably most looking forward to Avengers: Infinity War!

Lucinda @ Lucinda is Reading, Asked:

What book/author never fails to make you smile?

Probably “Hyperbole and a Half” by Allie Brosh as I always find it hilarious and it really never fails in that!

Ignited Moth, Asked:

What book have you read that made you feel the widest range of emotions while reading it?

“Red Rising” by Pierce Brown, I was shocked, sad, happy, and enraged while reading that one! So many different plot twists!

Hannah @ Mortal Reader, Asked:

What was your favorite read of 2017?

“Red Rising” by Pierce Brown!

Zezee @ Zezee with Books, Asked:

What are 2 fantasy novels you’d highly recommend?

“Stormdancer” by Jay Kristoff and “An Ember in the Ashes” by Sabaa Tahir

Michelle @ Book Adventures, Asked:

If you ever came across the mirror of Erised what do you think it would show?

This is such a creative question Michelle! I think the Mirror of Erised would show me happily in love and sitting, reading inside of a giant home library.

    Great answers! I’m so excited for you to read the rest of the Red Rising trilogy. I just finished rereading the entire thing and it only gets better.

      Thanks Stephanie! I know I’m going to love the rest of the trilogy and that makes me way more excited for it knowing it only gets better! I do have “Morning Star” on hand because I’ve heard the cliffhanger at the end of “Golden Son” is brutal, I’m prepared (but not really), haha! 🙂

        Waiting a year between Golden Son and Morning Star was torture. You are definitely going to want to start it right away. Can’t wait to see what you think of the rest of them!

    1) You’re gonna make me cry. I love you so much and I love your blog! ❤ You are one of my all-time faves and I am so happy to have met you!

    2) I started The Cruel Prince a couple of days ago and I'm buddy reading it, so we're only doing about 60-70 pages a day, but oh my goooood is it GOOD!

    3) *quietly hides ARC of Devils You Know and continues to pretend it doesn't exist*

    Congrats again on your huge milestone, lovely! You deserve it! ❤

    Thanks so much for answering my questions! It’s cool that you’re INFJ and Ravenclaw, I have a similar personality type (ISFJ) and I’m a Hufflepuff. I loved reading all your answers!💕

    Congratulations on 1,000! I’m with you when it comes to tea and Middle Earth. Middle Earth does seem to have the perfect balance of adventure and safety, plus there are so many worlds within it that would be amazing to see!

      Thank you Ashley! Glad you’d pick Middle Earth as well and like you said it really does seem like it’d be fun but also safer, and of course there really are tons of places to visit! 🙂

    I loved reading this! Congrats yet again! Haha, I can relate so much to being sarcastic, I am sarcastic almost allll the time. Sometimes I don’t know how not to be sarcastic because I can usually think of a sarcastic answer for everything 😛 I also have to agree, Zoe Redbird sucked majorly! I have no idea how I managed to read all the books in that series, because gah I couldn’t stand her… and a lot of her friends too!

    • Heather @ The Sassy Book Geek January 31, 2018 / 9:17 am

      Thank you so much Meghan! I’m totally with you there on the sarcasm, of course, I have to stop myself too! It’s like my brain’s automatic response is sarcasm and I have to tell myself not to do it sometimes because it can come off as rude and it’s like “wait! I’m just sarcastic! I wasn’t trying to be mean!”, haha.
      And SO GLAD you agree with me on Zoe! I managed to read 9 of those books and got to the point where I asked myself why am I even reading these? Then I just stopped, haha, but I salute you for trucking through all of them because I couldn’t have made it! 🙂

        You’re welcome! 🙂 Right?!?! I try hard not to be sarcastic because not everyone gets it, or they don’t know when I’m being real or sarcastic haha!
        I have this obsession that I need to continue reading a series once I’ve started especially if I get so far into one I want to finish it to see how it all ends. At least they were short books! 😝

    Awesome Q&A, and thanks so much for answering my question! ❤ While forbidden romance isn’t my #1, it’s definitely in my top favorites. Also, I completely agree with you on insta-love. Like, sure, there’s love at first sight irl but it doesn’t come off as…good? Adorable? Positive? in books…

      Thank you for asking me one! Glad you agree with me on the insta-love, it really doesn’t come off very positively in books…just kind of unrealistic. If someone could write insta-love and actually make it a little more believable I’d probably enjoy it more! 🙂

    I love the answer to my question, that is the absolute perfect thing to see in the mirror!

      Thank you so much Michelle and thanks for asking such a great question, I was very excited to answer it! And yes exactly I can only drink about one cup of coffee a day if even that but tea I can drink all day! And thank you I saw that print and had to have it, I awkwardly carried it around the store the entire time because I needed it! 🙂

    Loved reading your answers here! Thanks for taking the time to answer mine, too. 🙂 I could definitely see Red Rising stirring such a wide range of emotions. It’s such a good book (and series). I actually just started reading Morning Star yesterday night. 😀

    I really loved reading your answers! ❤ I would also probably pick Middle Earth as a fantasy world that I would love to live in. That world looks simply wonderful and I would love to spend a lot of time there, plus I have a feeling that you have many things that you can do there. 😀
