11 Questions...I've been tagged

Daisy and Sophie tagged me to answer some questions! So let's get cracking!

From Daisy:
  1. Favorite villain and why? Ooof, this one's hard. Because I am obsessed with it right now, I'm inclined to say Regina from Once Upon a Time. Mostly because right now I hate her the most, and that's what villains should make me do, right?
  2. What's the last book you read? Gregor and the Marks of Secret by Suzanne Collins.
  3. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? Wow, there's so many places I kind of want to pull a Bill and Ted! But let's face it, I'm a pretty modern girl. I think I'd go to the 1950s because there's still indoor plumbing, swing dancing, rock and roll, poofy skirts, and glass Coke bottles.
  4. Would you rather have an unlimited gift card to your favorite bookstore OR a publishing contract but never be allowed to read any other books? UNLIMITED GIFT CARD. Hands down. I can find a way to a publishing contract, but if I can't read any other books? Not only would I fail my major, I don't know what I'd do with my life!
  5. If you were an animal, what would you be? A cat. I'm more introverted and if I could sleep for 23 hours of the day...yeah. That'd be pretty great.
  6. What's your very first memory? The first memory I know actually happened was when I was two and my little brother was born. My parents were informed that based off of the heartbeat of their unborn child, they'd most likely be having a girl (my mom never wanted to know the sex of any of her kids, but for some reason listened to this). I'd been led to believe that I'd be getting a little sister, so when the couple babysitting us informed us that we had a little brother I yelled, "NO! IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE A GIRL!" I was really mad and blamed my babysitters that I'd gotten a brother. (I am now very grateful that I got a little brother and not a little sister)
  7. Suzanne Collins, JK Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Neil Gaiman, Judy Blume and John Green call.  They all want you to come to their house for dinner, but all on the same night.  Whose dinner invitation do you accept? Suzanne Collins. Suzanne Collins. I'm getting all wiggly just thinking about it (is this what Bieber fans feel like?).
  8. You discover a planet.  What do you name it? Well, I guess I should go along with the whole Roman thing, in which case I'd name it Minerva. I'd be really tempted to name it Kolob, but it wouldn't be my place to name it that. 
  9. What world/nation/city/place from a book would you most like to visit? Hogwarts (is there another answer for my generation, really?).
  10. Here's a million dollars.  How would you spend it? *note, I said spend.  It's a fantasy!  No saving!* Tuition. Books (but the fun ones!). Go to Europe. Remodel my parents' house. 
  11. On which reality TV contest or gameshow would you be a contestant? The Price is Right, because I would watch it on my days off from school all the time and I've always wanted to spin that big wheel!
And here's from Sophie:
1.When did you start writing? First grade at school, but on my own when I was eight.
2. Who are your literary heroes? (/favourite authors) Suzanne Collins, J.K. Rowling, Jane Austen, Laura Ingalls Wilder.
3. What is your favourite fictional character? Peeta Mellark.
4. What genre(s) do you write? I always say that I write YA and anything that can't really happen...although with my class that's proved to be false, so now I write everything!
5. What is your favourite book, tv show and film? Book: Mockingjay or Persuasion. Please don't make me choose. TV show: I'm going to go with Gilmore Girls since Once Upon a Time hasn't been on long enough for me to know for sure I'll always love it. Film: Probably Penelope. It's just so dang cute!
6. What is your favourite place you've visited in the world? I haven't visited many places, but I'd say Niagara Falls.
7. What is your favourite music? Hmmm...stuff like SafetySuit and He is We, but I like a lot of different kinds.
8. Have you ever written fanfic?/Opinions on it? Yes, and I think it's a fun way for writers to start out, but there are some things that just shouldn't be written at the same time.
9. Where is your favourite place to write? Anywhere comfy, with my music, and no one to distract me. So for where I am right now, my couch while my roommates are at school.
10. Tea or Coffee? Hot chocolate! (don't drink tea or coffee, sorry!)
11. Have you ever taken part in NaNoWriMo?/ Opinions on it? I tried once two years ago and failed. I think that it's great for people who need motivation, but for people who can finish stuff on their own time should spend their stress somewhere else. ;)

Here are my questions for those I pass along to:
  1. Redvines or Twizzlers?
  2. With your iPod/MP3 on shuffle, what's the first song that comes up?
  3. What's your least favorite book you ever had to read for school?
  4. You're the producer for turning any one book into a movie, which do you choose to do?
  5. What's your favorite youtube video?
  6. Who did you look up to when you were thirteen years old?
  7. Which food do you wish you could rid the planet of?
  8. Why did you decide to start blogging?
  9. Do you cry over books/movies/TV shows?
  10. What's one thing you believe in with all your heart?
  11. Flowers or chocolate?
And now, I tag:

  9. I am having such a grand ol' time reading the answers to everyone's questions. Making the campaign rounds today has been interesting!

    p.s. I'm a fellow Once Upon a Time fan. It's been a long time since a show captured my imagination so completely. :-)

  11. I love the answers to your questions...let's see Kolob and no tea or coffee...I bet I can guess your "religious persuasion" because it's probably mine. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. I loved Hunger Games. Suzanne Collins really knows how to write tension!
