Bits n' Pieces - Brooke Taylor

Brooke Taylor is the author of the book Undone. You can find my review of the book here, or you can read my interview on the book over at Read, Read, Read here. You can also visit Brooke's website by clicking here. I have to say that Undone was one of my favorite books of 2008 so far and I'd definitely recommend it. Not to mention, that Brooke is fantastic and was a pleasure to interview. :)

Have you ever:
Lived abroad? 
Sort of—used to live on a cruise ship and it traveled abroad.
Gotten a tattoo? 
Not at liberty to say at this time
Stayed up for the midnight release of a movie or book? 
No, but might for Twilight
Disliked your job? 
At times
Cried during a movie? 
Sang karaoke? 

If you were on a desert island, what 5 things would you bring with you? 
My mom, brother, two dogs, and a lifetime supply of diet coke. I could write my books using a stick in the sand.
What’s on the list of things you have to do during your life? 
Win the Lottery
If you could have one super power what would it be? 
Become invisible
What’s your perfect music playlist? 
A very very long one—I’m always changing what I like to listen to.
What’s the one food you could eat day after day and not get sick of? 
Is Diet Coke a food?
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? 
I’d love to go back to Africa, and diving in the Galapagos would be amazing. Anywhere there are cool animals.
What moment in history do you wish you could’ve experienced?
I would’ve loved to seen the Wright Brothers first take to the sky—that had to have been surreal. Who would’ve thought people could fly?!?
What does your dream library look like? 
Gorgeous wood shelves filled with YA books, comfy couches, and dogs and diet coke allowed inside.
When you walk into a bookstore, where do you head first?
YA section.
If everyone had to read one book, what would you have it be?
That’s tough—and fiction is very hard to recommend for everyone—so I’d go with a great “self-help” series called Toxic People.
Also for the ladies—I’d recommend How to Tell If Your Boyfriend Is the Antichrist: And If He Is, Should You Break Up with Him? A fun, but informative guide. 
Thank you so much Brooke! The winner of Song of the Sparrow from last week's post is Aella! Look for an email from Lisa soon! Congratulations!

  1. I REALLY want to read this book! Loved the Galapagos. The animals there are so cool - they even pose for pictures!

  2. I love Diet Coke too! Once I even said it in my sleep.

    Undone looks really good!

  3. Cool interview! Undone looks like a great read, I HAVE to get me a copy! :)

  4. I need this book, I've needed to read it since I did the Inte(Re)view with you... Someday soon!

  5. I love how much she mentions Diet Coke. I think someone needs to go DCA--that would be Diet Coke Anonymous. Haha.

    I LOVE Fuddruckers. We hardly ever go there, but when we do... OH! I am soo happy!

    I have Undone on my TBR list. I can't wait to get around to reading it!


  6. I really would love to read this book! I have wished for it ever since I realized it has a character named Kori (my name) the only downside is I already know Kori dies!

  7. Seems to be a nice book, would love to read it.


Pour your heart out. :)
