wdtbwsbuttonfinal3Hey all you crazy kids out there!

Welcome to a Special Edition of What Does The Bookworm Say?
Today, I’ve interviewed fun fellow booksworm: Nicole from The Reader’s Antidote.
Take it away, Nicole!






IMG_0387Name: Nicole Mainardi

Code Name/Alias: That Girl That Reads In The Corner Like a Weirdo / Belle


Haunt: The Reader’s Antidote (http://nicoleyalover.blogspot.com)


I read mostly: Young Adult


Literary Boyfriend: Ha! I hope you don’t expect only one. I suppose if there was to be only one, it’d be Jace from The Mortal Instruments series (mostly books 1-3). Runner-ups are: Edward from Twilight, Dmitri Belikov from Vampire Academy, Will from The Infernal Devices, Kaidan from the Sweet Trilogy, Daemon from the Lux series, Aiden from the Covenant series, Will from the Angelfire series, Hector from the Girl of Fire and Thorns series.


Literary Best friend: This is actually a really tough one for me. I often feel like I’m the girl in the story, not her best friend or anything. So I want to say Kenji from the Shatter Me books by Tahereh Mafi.


Literary Arch Nemesis:Lord Voldemort, no contest.


Besides reading, what are some other favorite hobbies? Writing my book, playing soccer, hanging out with friends, eating sushi. Scratch that, just eating. Also, watching hockey and subsequently going to live hockey games.


Who are you? Hobbit, Elf or Dwarf? Elf. I’m taller than most of my friends, so I’ve never felt like a Hobbit or a Dwarf. Also, hairy feet and hairy, well, everything else…not my thing. I’ve also been told I have elf-like ears.


How do you take your potato? Hmm, I like my potatoes many ways. I like fries and mashed potatoes and chips and baked potatoes… I’m Irish, what can I say?


You are fleeing from your arch nemesis. Which mode of transportation do you take? 
a) Broomstick (If it’s good enough for Harry Potter it’s good enough for me!)
b) Pegasus
c) Spaceship
d) Nothing. I shall wave my hand and turn them into toads!


Team Edward or Team Jacob? (be honest) EDWARD! I HATE Jacob with a passion. In the books he was an annoyance (the main reason I hated New Moon), but when they got a terrible actor to play him in the movies, I was so out. As intense as Edward seems at times, I can’t help but love him.


I organize my bookshelf by:
a) color
b) size
c) genre
d) what bookshelf? I am a digital only reader
e) (Yes I added another option) read and unread. And within those separate shelves, I organize it differently as well. In the read shelf, I organize it as putting the books I love near the top, and the books I thought were okay near the bottom. In the unread shelf, I organize it by books I want to read most at the top, and books I may never get to at the bottom.


Harry Potter has come over and needs your help. What do you do? Umm, fangirl for a bit, and then remember that he’s with Ginny and that I have a boyfriend… And then I’d probably do whatever he asked of me. Although I draw the line at killing people, unless it’s Umbridge who’s rotting in Azkaban at the moment.


You may be granted an interview with your favorite author- living or dead. Who do you pick to have tea with? That’s a tough one, so I’m going to pick one of both. For my dead author, I’d love to interview either Shakespeare or Edgar Allen Poe. For my living author, I’d definitely have to pick JK Rowling.


And finally, the question we’ve all been waiting for


You are granted one magical pet. Which do you choose and why?
a) cunning rabbit
b) faithful wolf
c) curious cat
d) wise owl
e) majestic lion (because Aslan) Well, like I said, Aslan is the main reason I would choose a lion. He is brave and ferocious and is a great protector. Also, he’s big enough to ride on! 
f) watchful raven
g) (Another added one) loyal dog But I added the loyal dog one because I’m a dog person and there’s no other animal that will protect you as fiercely as a loyal dog.
