11 questions for me:

1.  What “paranormal” being would be choose to be and why?
I would choose to be a werewolf. One of my first UF series that I read was about werewolves. I really love the freedom and power they represent.

2.  When did you start blogging?
I started in May 2012, just last month.

3.  How do you choose whether or not to read a book?
Goodreads is a great source for recommendations and review. Title is really important. I won’t read anything that has a crappy title.

4.  Name your favorite bookish couple. And why?
Elena and Clayton from Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld series. I just love their dynamic.

5.  How did you come up with your blog name?
Kinx is my father’s childhood nickname for me. He still calls me that.

6.  Why did you start blogging?
Of course, I love to read and I read a lot. I wanted to do something that was just for me and my husband suggested I start a book blog.

7.  How many books are in your to-read pile?
I would say about 35.

8.  Do you usually read mainstream or indie authors?
In the past, I only read mainstream authors but since I have started bloggers, I have been introduced to some really great indie authors.

9.  Name a book that you could have done without reading? Any why?
I have to say the Twilight Series. Not very good writing and silly story.

10.  If you could teleport yourself into any fictional world, where would you go?
Harry Potter’s world. I would love to attend Hogwarts.

11.  If you could be any Character from a book, who would you be and why?
Elena Michaels (Otherworld) or Diana Bishop (All Souls) because they are such strong and independent characters.
