Weekend Wonder: Casper

It's been a long time since I've done one of these, but I am more than happy to introduce you all to more fabulous bloggers! Well, most of you know the drill. This is a Weenend Wonder Feature. To find out more about the Weekend Wonders and read other features click here.

This lovely weekend, we have Casper! She has recently come onto the Who's Your Editor scene, but has already made herself a great little piece to our puzzle, having already joined the Bookmark Break Challenge and giving some of the top contenders a run for their money. Here's a little bit more that you may not have known...

General Questions…

Name: Amani

Penname: Casper Starr

A sentence or two about yourself: My name means peace, which is silly, because I’m the least peaceful person that I know. I’m really, really shy, but I’m trying to get over that.

A sentence or two on what your blog is about: My blog is about books and writing. My seventeen-year-old take on them anyway.

Book Lover Questions…

A book Casper read recently!
What is your favorite book and why? Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I think it’s the best book in the series, because it’s smack in the middle of it (so it has just the right amount of lightheartedness mixed with darkness).

Other favorites? Anything by Eoin Colfer. I also like Stardust and The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, and the Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare, as well as The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Oh, and The Princess Bride, by William Goldman.

What’s your favorite genre to read? YA Fantasy

Where do you like to read? Anywhere that’s comfortable.

Do you prefer paper books or ebooks? Paper, definitely.

Do you prefer to buy or borrow books? Buy, but lately I’ve been borrowing.

Do you stop reading when you are tired or when you hit chapter breaks? I try to stop at chapter breaks, unless I’m too exhausted, then I just put a bookmark in and go to sleep.

When you finish a book do you usually keep it, throw it away, sell it, or give it away? Keep it. I’m really iffy when it comes to my books. I hardly ever lend them to people.

What helps you decide on a book? (Book reviews, suggested by friend, by browsing the shelves, etc.) I browse the shelves at bookstores until I find something that seems interesting.

Do prefer to read a book that stands on its own or is a part of a series? I like series, but it’s irritating to have to wait for the next book to come out.

So You Want to be a Writer questions…

A few sentences about your writing: What do you write (blog entries, novels, poetry, etc)? Why do you write? I have two blogs which I update often – one is private and the other one is just about my writing and reading experiences. Right now, I’m working on a TV script for Script Frenzy, as well as part three of my novella series The Ant Files.

Did you always know that you wanted to write? I suppose… deep down inside? I only realized it when I was fourteen though.

Favorite Questions…

Casper's favorite movie!
What’s your favorite food? Bread. Anything goes with bread.

Favorite color? Pink!

Favorite song? Anything that doesn’t make me cry?

Favorite movie? Uh, Mean Girls :D (and Ocean’s Eleven)

Favorite TV show? Friends, How I Met Your Mother, My Wife and Kids, Gossip Girl, 90210, Modern Family (I can’t choose one)

Random Questions…

If you developed a superpower what would it be and why? Telekinesis. I could extract revenge on lots of people hehehehe

What did you want to be when you were little? An artist. Then a teacher. And then an artist again.

What is the answer to life? Do what makes you happy.
