ASK THE REVIEWER: My Tower of Books


My Tower of Books


This is the seventh in a series I'm hosting where I talk with reviewers who have reviewed my books. Today I welcome Jackie Miller from My Tower of Books! She was kind enough to take time out of her reading and blogging schedule to answer some fun questions about herself, her blog, and about my novel Ambasadora.

ABOUT THE REVIEWER

1. What types of books do you review most often?
My reviews vary pretty widely. Mostly I review Paranormal, Sci-Fi and Fantasy within Young Adult and Adult. I like to mix things up :-)

2. Are there any types of books you won’t review?
I don't do non-fiction. It has its place . . . but it just doesn't interest me. I prefer to escape to another world when I'm reading.

3. Do you review more books you've come to on your own or those from authors/publishers?
I started out reviewing books I owned or borrowed from the library. I've been really lucky lately to have a steady stream of requests from authors and publishers. It's been really great getting to meet all these hard working people living the dream :-)

4. How long does it usually take you to get to a book once it makes it into your TBR pile?
Arg! It can take anywhere from one week to one month. I try to get a good turnaround, but my reading time is pretty limited at the moment. I have three young kids that are all home with me during the day which means I only read at night (or during naptime if everyone is asleep at the same time by some miraculous turn of fate).

5. What is your favorite book ever?
I have a hard time pinning down just ONE book that I love. It has changed over time. If we're going by how many times I've re-read a book, it would have to be Pride & Prejudice. That is some good stuff right there!


ABOUT AMBASADORA

1. Who was your favorite character?
Definitely Sean! I loved his character, and I wanted to take care of him :-) I am always drawn to the quiet, wounded type of guy in books.

2. Who did you picture as the characters?
Hrrm . . . I kind of pictured Sean as John McAvoy. I'm not sure why exactly, but I don't need a huge reason to picture him. He's pretty yummy!

3. What is your favorite setting within the Ambasadora-verse?
I really liked the Underground. I could feel how gritty and illicit it was while reading.

4. Would you rather have a character or a place named after you?
Probably a character. I love putting myself in the shoes of the female characters that I'm reading about.

5. What would you like to see in future books within the Ambasadora-verse?
More V-side! The glimpses of it in the book were really cool.

6. Would you ever want to travel to the V-side?
As much as I liked it in the book . . . No! I'm too chicken. You have to give up control of your physical body while there, and that would probably make me too nervous :-)
