What about you?

I was thinking about you guys this morning . I want to know a few things about you, since you're probably sick of reading about me all the time. :) I'd like to get to know you a little better, so answer these questions in the comments. Right now. I mean, if you want. You don't have to. I'm not pushy. And I realize they are totally random, but we are writers! Enlighten me. ;)

1. What is one book you wish you had written?

2. What Disney movie is your favorite? If any? (Animated. I may or may not own them all ... )

3. Do you prefer sweet or salty?

4. What type of paranormal creature would you be? And why?

5. Something you couldn't live without? Excluding hubby's, wives, children and pets. :)

I love random questions, don't you? ;) *Grabs popcorn*


Sarah Pearson said...

1. You're asking me to choose just one? about one series? The Memory, Sorrow and Thorn epic fantasy trilogy by Tad Williams. This series is probably the reason I don't write fantasy!

2. I'll say Cinderella, but it's more because it's the only time my Dad took me to the cinema than for the film.

3. Sweet, no contest.

4. An Angel. I'd love to be someone's guardian without them knowing.

5. Music. All of it :-)

Claire Lachance said...

1. What is one book you wish you had written?
To Kill A Mockingbird. That is such a great book!

2. What Disney movie is your favorite? If any? (Animated. I may or may not own them all ... )
The Little Mermaid. My daughter loves it too!

3. Do you prefer sweet or salty?
Definitely sweet!

4. What type of paranormal creature would you be? And why?
That's a good question. I'm not really sure!

5. Something you couldn't live without? Excluding hubby's, wives, children and pets. :)

Abby said...

1. HUNGER GAMES (yeah, I'm so inventive!)


3. both!

4. I think I would be something like the Loch Ness Monster! I would take all those non-believers and give them a scare!

5. You already know my answer... CHOCOLATE! :)

*sharing popcorn*

Reece said...

1. Either Bram Stoker's Dracula or Garth Nix's Sabriel series

2. It's a toss up between Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast

3. Depends on the situation. I like both.

4. Not sure.

5. FOOD!!!

Michelle Merrill said...

This is like one big interview for all your readers :)

I'll bite!

1. The Little Women.
2. Any of the old ones with real people! Favorite right now...I like Summer Magic.
3. Sweet!
4. Not sure.
5. Food.

I totally watched a movie with the hubby last night and ate popcorn inspired by your facebook post! We watched One Night with the King. It's a fantastic movie!

E.R. King said...

Love this! Umm...
1. Pride and Prejudice
2. Cinderella
3. Sweet
4. An angel, because I like to help other people.
5. Diet Coke.

S.P. Bowers said...

1. I dont' wish I had written other's books, though there are authors I would like to be able to write like. Mostly I wish I could write the stories in my head the way they deserve.

2. Hmmm, gonna have to think. Beauty and the Beast is my favorite fairy tale so that may win by default.

3.Depends on my mood. I'm a fickle creature completely driven by my moods. My poor husband.

4. Elasta Girl! Who wouldn't want to be her?

5. Excluding hubby's wives, children and scriptures...I'd have to say books and food. I need them both and I like them together. As long as I don't forget which one is which....

Cynthia Lee said...

1. What is one book you wish you had written?

Wuthering Heights. I'm not normally a dark person so I don't exactly know why I love this book so much.

2. What Disney movie is your favorite? If any? (Animated. I may or may not own them all ... )

Beauty and the Beast, I think.

3. Do you prefer sweet or salty?

Salty. I can't have sweets. *sigh*

4. What type of paranormal creature would you be? And why?

Um . . . I don't know. The 12 year old in me has always wanted to be in the X-men. Does that count?

5. Something you couldn't live without? Excluding hubby's, wives, children and pets. :)

Movies. Can't imagine life without them. I'm a lifelong hardcore movie geek.

Michael Haynes said...

1. I'd have to say "Eight Million Ways to Die" by Lawrence Block.

2. I've got a huge soft spot for "Aladdin."

3. Salty.

4. Hmm... Well, I get rather furry if I don't go to the barber regularly enough, so I'll say "werewolf."

5. Music. I love my iPod because I can carry thousands of albums with me anywhere I go.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

@Sarah Pearson I've never heard of that series. I may have to check it out! And music would definitely be one thing I couldn't live without! :D
@Claire Lachance I love The Little Mermaid. And I LOVE chocolate!! :D
@Abby Oh, yeah. The Hunger Games is awesome. And I LOVE Tangled. So cute. Makes me cry every time I watch it. :P And the Loch Ness Monster? Ba ha ha! LOVE IT!
@Reece I LOVE Beauty and the Beast. I also love Aladdin. :) And of course you couldn't live without food! I'm pretty sure I remember you saying you love it! :)
@Michelle Merrill Ha! I know, right? ;) I like the old ones with real people as well. I remember The Parent Trap and Pollyanna. :)

@E.R. King I'd love to be an angel too. That would be so cool. And I do love me some Pride and Prejudice. Mr. Darcy. Yum! :)
@S.P. Bowers Yay! Another one for Beauty and the Beast! I LOVE that one. And Elasta Girl! I love her too! That is such a cute show. ;)
@Cynthia Lee I must confess ... I've never read Wuthering Heights. *hides* Yay for Beauty and the Beast! :D And I seriously love X-Men. Storm was always my favorite. And Wolverine. ;)

Angie Cothran said...

1. Austenland by Shannon Hale - Love that book!
2. Hercules - Love the music!
3. Both! Sometimes together.
4. A Fairy - they tend to be quite beautiful.
5. Chocolate - In fact that reminds me. I need to go to the store.

This is so fun. Thanks.

Meredith said...

1. Pride and Prejudice. One of the best love stories ever? Yes, please!

2. Beauty and the Beast. Mainly because Beauty loves to read, and I thought that was so cool when I was younger.

3. Sweet, hands down.

4. Um, fairy? It would be awesome to have wings.

5. Chocolate. Always necessary.

What a fun idea!

Jenny S. Morris said...

1. I don't think any of them. The characters belong to the author and I feel weird about saying I would want to own them. But, I do wish I could write in verse. That would be awesome!

2. The Toy Story Movies. I know they are Pixar, but it's Disney Pixar now, and almost all my favorites are Pixar.


4. Nothing that had to drink blood, or bite people. Defiantly something that could fly. So an angel or fairy.

5. I'm going to have to go with Chocolate on this one.

Jolene Perry said...

1. Speak by Halse Anderson - I kept reading and thinking - THIS IS HOW I THINK! WHY doesn't it come out on paper?? And Two-Way Street by Barnholdt - not because it was so amazing, but because I can't believe I hadn't thought of the idea first.

2. Favorite?? Uh . . . Despicable Me, The Emperor's New Groove, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs . . . I know those aren't all disney, but . . .

3. BOTH - dark chocolate with sea salt . . .

4. A witch. Totally. I want to walk around in the real, normal word, with freakin' awesome powers :D

5. My computer? Books? Music? A delightfully thick blanket to wrap myself in???

Fun :D

Shallee said...

Ooh, fun questions! I'd love to hear your answers to these too. :)

1. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly. It's my idea of perfection in YA literature.

2. Beauty and the Beast. I think I loved Belle as a kid because she was a bookworm like me.

3. Sweet or, depends on my mood.

4. I'd love to be some kind of shape shifter. I always thought it'd be cool, because you could shift into an animal and fly or run really fast, so you'd basically have all the coolest super powers. :)

5. I couldn't live to be creative...a washing machine. Okay, I could (I've washed my clothes by hand before), but I really wouldn't want to!

M.J. Fifield said...

1. I wish I had written The President's Daughter series by Ellen Emerson White. Those books had such a huge impact on me as a teen and I'm still obsessed with them today.

2. I'd have to say The Little Mermaid. That, or The Lion King

3. Sweet.

4. Werewolf. They just seem less lame than vampires.

5. Chocolate. Definitely chocolate.

And yes, I do love random questions. Enjoy the popcorn!

Shari said...

1. Many, but Hunger Games is definitely on the list.
2. Sleeping Beauty
3. Definitely sweet.
4. A fairy? Then I could fly (my last name is Bird after all)
5. Garden tomatoes.

Random is my middle name, well not literally, but still that is how my brain works--randomly.

Chantele Sedgwick said...

@Michael Haynes Isn't Aladdin, awesome? My hubby's favorite princess is Jasmine. Hmmm... I wonder why? :) And your werewolf answer cracked me up. Nice to meet you! :D
@Angie Cothran I LOVE Hercules!! :D The music is awesome. Another one I love is The Hunchback. That music is fantastic. Not a lot of people love that one though.
@Meredith I would love to be a fairy too. That would be so awesome. And I LOVE Pride and Prejudice. Mr. Darcy is so sexy! ;)
@Jenny S. Morris I love the Pixar movies as well. They are all awesome. And I wouldn't like to drink blood or bit people either! LOL
@Jolene Perry I love the Emporor's New Groove. Makes me laugh every time I watch it. ;) And I'd totally pick a witch. They rock. :D
@Shallee I still need to read Revolution. I've heard such great things about it. And Belle was my favorite because she was a bookworm too! She made reading look cool! ;) And I couldn't live without a watching machine either! :P
@M.J. Fifield I'll have to check that book out! And your answer about paranormals? LOL Werewolves are MUCH less lame than vampires! Ha ha! :)
@Shari Oooohh! We've had our first Sleeping Beauty! I love the prince in that movie. He's super cute. And garden tomatoes? I'd rather starve to death! lol They aren't my fav. But I do love them in salsa! ;) Thanks for stopping by! :D

Jessie Oliveros said...

1. Where the Wild Things Are-so much said in so little words
2. Cinderella
3. Sweet and fruity
4. Mermaid
5. Hand Sanitizer-I might be a germ freak

Samantha said...

1. The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I know it's new, but it's really good!

2. Definitely Cinderella :)

3. Sweet. Chocolate is a lifestyle.

4. I would want to be a ghost. I think it would be mighty fun to go scare people :D I know, I'm so bad.

5. My journal. It keeps me pretty sane. I'd have to say food as well, but that's pretty obvious.

I love the questions!

Jeigh said...

1. The Maze Runner series by James Dashner. So awesome!

2. Tarzan. I got my first kiss from my husband on a date to see that movie.

3. Sweet. Then salty. Then more sweet.

4. Hmmmm...I don't know.

5. Books, of course! :)

Steph Sinkhorn said...

1. This question always makes me feel weird, because books I admire aren't necessarily books I wish I'd written, but here goes: The Princess Bride.

2. The Lion King, by far

3. Depends on the day, honestly. But usually salty.

4. A unicorn, because they're lovely and innocent-looking until you make a wrong move. THEN YOU GET THE HORN.

5. Air ;)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

@Jessie Oliveros Hey! I might be a germ freak too! ;)
@Samantha LOL! Scaring people would be awesome! :D
@Jeigh CUTE! I love first kiss stories! And I love Tarzan as well. ;)
@Steph Sinkhorn LOL! Then you get the horn! That was hilarious!! Love it! :)

lindy said...

1. It isn't any one book, it's the first line from Andrea Cremer's Nightshade. I just double checked to make sure I get it right, wouldn't want to do it a disservice. "I'd always welcomed war, but in battle my passion rose unbidden."
Holy crow, how I wish I'd written that line. I. Was. Hooked.

2. Fav Disney flick is Mulan

3. Sweet AND salty, baby!

4. I would be a fairy, sprinkling happy dust on the world. "I said be happy, dammit!"

5. Triple sigh. Caffeine (Diet Coke)

Kimberly Krey said...

This is such a fun post!

1. Uh...Twilight. Yeah.
2. Beauty and the Beast - love it!
3. Salty. Always salty. Helloooo frech fries.
4. Get back to you on that one.
5. Am I awful if I say my laptop? I equate that with writing and I don't want to live without it. :)

Monica B.W. said...

Great idea! :D

1. I'm gonna go with Twilight too, lol. It's not that it's my favorite book (I like A thousand Splendid Suns), but I write YA!

2. TANGLED!! Wait was that a Disney movie?

3. SWEET!! And Salty!! Yum... I like to eat, lol.

4. A ghost! I could spy on everyone without them seeing me!

5. Umm, my iPhone?

niiganab said...

1. I've never wished I'd written any book. Would have liked to live in a few of the worlds created. Think that's why I like fantasy so much.
2. Disney?
3. Salty.
4. dreamwalker. Might be a little dangerous if it's a nightmare though.
5. Music and reading. I'd have to sing to myself and write my own stories if I had to I guess.

Amanda Milner said...

Ooh! Fun questions!!

1.) Ok, I'll say it...Twilight. I mean, come on, it's practiacally a franchise. People fight over who loves her characters the most and they stand in the cold for hours to watch the movie. (I did. Lol!)

2.) I watched Tangled 5 times already, I think it has moved up to my favorite. ;)

3.)Salty! I want popcorn hardcore right now.

4.)Shapeshifter. It'd be awesome to be able to shift into anything that fits the situation your in.

5.) Music. I listen to it all day long. :)

Thanks, that was fun. ☺

Melanie Jacobson said...

1. I swear this is my answer for every book related question, but "To Kill a Mockingbird." Or maybe Anna and the French Kiss."

2. Maybe Aladdin. Or Little Mermaid.

3. Salty.

4. Witch. They're cool.

5. Books.

Lauren F. Boyd said...

One book that I wish I had written is THE DARK FIELDS by Alan Glynn. I just saw the movie, LIMITLESS, last night based on this novel, and I was like, "Yeah, why didn't I think of writing a story about how to access and use all of our brain power instead of just 20% of it?"

But at least now, my creative juices are flowing, haha!
