Pearl tweet-dared me to join in this MEME and since I can hardly refuse a dare I was all brawn and said: “You’re on girlfriend” *grin* It wasn’t until like ten minutes later that she said: “You have to answer each question in 5 words.” And that is when my brain kicked in; “What the hell do you mean five words??!! I can’t answer in five words, I am like…you know…the Queen of long answers. I do not do short and to the point, it isn’t in my DNA and just can’t do it!”

But with accepting this tweet-dare I know I have to do it, so with a large glass of juice I just cracked my neck in reflex, wiggled my fingers for flexibility and away I go…

'We encourage you to be creative with this! Please choose one or two questions to answer or try to answer all the questions in five words or less. Or choose a picture to answer a question! Brevity is the goal of today!'

1. Do you snack while you read? If so, favorite reading snack? Sometimes, varies from chocolate/apple.

2. Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you? Are you kidding me? Horrifying!

3. How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open? I’m a bookmark kinda gal!

4. Fiction, Non-fiction, or both? Fiction wins hands down.

5. Hard copy or audiobooks? Me always hearts hard copy.

6. Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or are you able to put a book down at any point? I finish the sex scenes :D

7. If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop to look it up right away? No, to lazy : )

8. What are you currently reading? Annette McCleave – Drawn Into Darkness

9. What is the last book you bought? Duology: Deep Kiss Of Winter

10. Are you the type of person that only reads one book at a time or can you read more than one at a time? I tried but sticked to one.

11. Do you have a favorite time of day and/or place to read? The afternoon.

12. Do you prefer series books or stand alone books? I swing both ways : )

13. Is there a specific book or author that you find yourself recommending over and over? I love pimping C.L. Wilson.

14. How do you organize your books? (By genre, title, author’s last name, etc.?) Chaos rules with leontine-system.

A chocolate binge,
An Einstein coupe of hair,
And one hour and forty-eight minutes later, finally finished this interview *YAY*

  1. Honey, you are beyond salvation, even on a dare you can't stick to 5 words *dies laughing*

  2. I keep it short, because some of us actually can do that.


  3. @Mandi, I lurve to swing *wink*

    @Pearl, okay, I deleted the *sigh* in hard copy answer which brings it down to 5 words :)

  4. Way to go, and shortish answers there :)

    Finish the sex scenes, well that is a good way to do it

  5. Great answers Leontine! And congrats on all of them being five words or less! *wink*

    LOL! You finish the sex scenes!!!

    ;) VFG

    P.S. I'm a hardcover and bookmark gal too. ;)

  6. Oh.My.God. 5 words or less, you deserve some kind of gold medal. Great line with the "I finish the sex scenes" :)

  7. Love your answers - so you're a bad girl and a good girl (chocolate/apple)! I'm more of a paperback gal, but I have been getting more hardbacks lately... :)

  8. I'm very proud! And totally agree about the sex scenes..LOL

  9. @Blodeuedd/VampFanGirl/Smokinhotbooks/SusiSunshine - I can put a book down at any moment but not that very easily when I am in the middle of the characters having it going on together, or in a threesome, whatever. I just have to finish it to know it all :D

    @BookChickCity - Yeah, I really try to go for the apple or fruit each time but sometimes I just want my dose of chocolate and can't resist *wink*

  10. Look what good care you take with your books! I loved your chapter break answer. LOL I would never stop in the middle of a sex scene either!

  11. Oh, I so agree with your answer to #2. And no dog-ears either!

  12. LOL! If you can stop in the middle of a sex scene either it wasn't any good or the house is on fire. ;)

    Great answers! I'm all for books & chocolate. :)

  13. Love the answers and the inside look into the mind of Leontine!!! ;)

    I totally agree with you on the not dog earing and marking in the books I like to keep my copies pristine as I can.

    ROFL at the finishing the sex scenes you go girl!

  14. Wauw that you were able to give answers with just 5 words! I think I won't be able to do so *sigh*

  15. Are you a person who tends to read to the end of chapters, or are you able to put a book down at any point? I finish the sex scenes :D

    Ha! Me too.
