Feature Friday is a post I created to showcase other bloggers in the book loving community. Each blogger volunteers to be a guest and answers a bunch of my silly and disturbing (well, maybe not disturbing) questions!
Today I am welcoming blogger Kendall McCubbin of Book Crazy to The Cover Contessa! Let's get to know her a little better, shall we...
Thanks so much for stopping by The Cover Contessa today, Kendall. It's so great to connect with other bloggers! Let's get right down to business, shall we?
Where were you born and where do you call home?
I was born in a hospital in Irvine which is a small town in Scotland and I still call Scotland my
How long have you been a blogger?
I have been a blogger for a few months now and I love it!
What is the name of the book you most recently blogged about?
When I answered these questions the last book series I had blogged about was the Touch Series
by Laurie Faria Stolarz!
Did you like the cover? Rate it on a scale of 1 stars to 5 stars, 5 being the best?
I love the covers and I think they are gorgeous. They definitely deserve a 5 star rating!
If you could ask the author 3 questions about this book, what would they be?
I would ask Laurie Faria Stolarz how she came up with the idea to write the Touch Series, I
would ask her who her favourite character is and I would ask her which book was the hardest for
her to write!
Can you name a favorite scene from the book?
I honestly couldn't name just one scene but I did love all the steamy scenes and there was also a
love triangle so that meant that there were even more steamy scenes!
What character did you like the most? The least? Why?
My favourite character was actually the main one, Camelia Hammond! She was such a great
character and I loved her journey! I really hated Matt Zander but he was the bad guy so I am
pretty sure I was supposed to hate him!
Was this a series or stand alone? If it is a series, will you read the rest of the books?
This was a series and I have read all four books so far! The next one, Deadly Little Lessons is
due out this December and I will definitely be reading it!
Was this a review book or something you picked out to read? Do you think that influenced
I normally always pick which book I am going to review but sometimes I do get asked to read
and review a book by an author and I happily do so! I actually started reading these books as
soon as they had came out so I didn't have a blog then and this did influence my review!
What did you rate this book?
I rated this series 5 stars and it definitely deserved it!
Have you written a book yourself or are you planning to in the future?
Unfortunately, I have not written a book yet but hopefully in the coming years I can become a
Journalist and maybe a book could come from that! :)
What genre is your favorite and why?
My favourite genre is actually Young Adult!
If you were shipwrecked on a desert island what 3 books would you want with you and
I would take any book by Jennifer L. Armentrout and Jessica Sorensen! I would also take
Pushing the Limits by Katie Mcgarry! I love these authors books and I could re-read them over
and over again!
Is there an author that you would really like to meet? Is there an author that you really
wanted to meet and had the pleasure of doing so?
I would absolutely LOVE to meet Jennifer L. Armentrout one day! I have actually met a few
authors. I had the absolute honour to meet Rachel Caine and she was super nice! I recently
also met with an up and coming author called Becky-Elizabeth Searson whose first book will
hopefully be released next year!
Do you prefer ebooks, paperbacks or hardcover?
I normally prefer ebooks but sometimes I will buy the paperback or hardback if I really like the
Where do you buy your books?
I always buy my books online! Normally off of Amazon but I seem to be buying books off of
The Book Depository a lot these days! I really like buying books online because you normally
can't walk into a book shop and buy some of my favourite authors books! :(
Have you ever read a book more than once? Which one and why?
I can normally read any book that I loved over and over again! I can read so many authors books
over and over again and still love them!
Do you prefer movies over books ever?
I actually prefer books over movies! The Twilight films ruined the books for me and then I didn't
like The Hunger Games film so hopefully The Mortal Instruments films will be good and maybe
my opinion will change!
What book are you currently reading and in what format (ebook/paperback/hardcover)?
When I answered these questions the books I was currently reading were A Vampire on Vacation
by Ally Thomas and Spark by Melissa Dereberry and they were both ebooks!
What book are you about to start reading?
After I finish reading theses book I am going to move onto Dark Summer by Lizzy Ford!
What book do you know that you will never read? Why?
I will never read the Harry Potter books! I have watched the first few films and I didn't like them
at all so I am pretty sure that I will not enjoy the books!
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest recently and why
There is an author that recently grabbed my attention and her name is Becky-Elizabeth Searson!
I am actually beta reading her first book and it is amazing! I am positive that she will go far in
her writing career!
Have you read a book that you would like to rewrite the ending of?
This actually happened to me with Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare! The ending really
annoyed me because I am Team Will but anything could happen in Clockwork Princess!
Do you like book trailers? Why or why not?
I absolutely LOVE book trailers! My favourite book trailers are the ones for the Lux Series by
Jennifer L. Armentrout and also Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi!
Name your three favorite book covers:
1. The Fallen Star by Jessica Sorensen!
2. The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare!
3. The Archers of Avalon Series by Chelsea Fine!
Where do you usually blog?
I normally blog sitting in my room! I write reviews when I am lying in my bed at night listening
Do you have any pet peeves?
I have so many pet peeves! I hate arrogant, bitchy people so much! I hate it when people spit
right in front of you, I hate it when people crack their knuckles and I hate it when people argue
with you when you are right!
How often do you blog?
I try and blog every day with a book review and a Song of the Day! Some days I only post Song
of the Day though!
How many books do you read in a month?
I normally try and get through at least 15 books or more in a month but it depends because I go
to school and when we have a holiday that is normally when I read the most so if we have a long
holiday then I will probably get more books read!
Do you have a reading log for your books? Do you have a goal for the year?
I don't actually have a reading log for my books but since I made a Goodreads account I have a
goal for the number of books I am attempting to read by the end of this year!
How do you organize your books?
I normally organize my books in the order of my favourites! I seem to be running out of room on
my bookshelf though so I am going to have to start putting them somewhere else! lol
What is your favorite color?
I have never had a favourite colour but I really love the colour purple!
What are 5 items you never leave home without:
1. My phone!
2. A book!
3. My purse!

5. My bag!
What is your most favorite electronic gadget?
My favourite electronic gadget is most definitely my Kindle! I would take it everywhere with me
if there was a chance that it wouldn't get stolen!
Name your three book crushes:
1. Daemon Black from the Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout!
2. Noah Hutchins from Pushing the Limits by Katie Mcgarry
3. Shane Collins from The Morganville Vampires Series by Rachel Caine!
P.S. I have so many book crushes!
Is there a character you love to hate?
I don't think so! If I don't like a character then I honestly don't like them!
Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?
Neither! I absolutely hate hot drinks! I actually can't go near anyone when they have coffee! lol

My favourite food for the past couple of years is actually Oreos! I could sit and eat them all day!

Little Liars and The Walking Dead and as for films my favourite is either A Cinderella Story or
She's The Man!
What are you most fearful of?
My biggest fear right now is that I will not be able to get into the college I want, to do the
Journalism course I want! I really hope I do though!
