Priscilla from Priscilla and Her Books

Today please welcome Priscilla, who blogs at Priscilla and Her Books.

What's the meaning behind the name of your book blog?

Priscilla and her Books. It's pretty straightforward, I would say.

How long have you been blogging?

I'm a newbie book blogger. I've been in the blogosphere since late November 2012.

Tell us a bit about your book blog. What makes it unique?

I include memorable book quotes.

What genres do you write about most, and why?

It varies. I've been reviewing a lot of fantasy books these days.

What's your earliest memory of reading?

I was 10. My parents enrolled me in a day care centre. I wasn't too fond with the idea at first, but when I spotted the mini library at the recreation room, I changed my mind. The rest of the kids were more interested in the computers games (neopets, sonic), so I had the library to myself.

What was the first book you read over and over, or the book you've reread the most?

Matilda by Roald Dahl. I misplaced (the worst thing a reader could do) the copy so I plan to buy a new one. The Third Eye by Lois Duncan has a special spot in my heart, as well.

Writing in books: Yes or hell to the no?

If it's in pencil, I think I can handle that. Ultimately, it's the content. Your feelings, opinions, favourite characters etc...

What's your favorite place to read?

A comfy couch in a quiet room. With hot chocolate or honey lemon tea!

Do you have any reading accessories you can't do without?

If I'm reading on my tablet, my glasses.

Finish the sentence: My bookshelves are...

my buddies.

My TBR pile is...

increasing day by day. I really want to read S. by J. J. Abrams and Doug Dorst!

What's a book that's changed your life?

I haven't found a book like that. I look forward to reading it.

One book you like that no one else seems to, or vice versa?

I didn't enjoy Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.

To DNF or not to DNF?

Gosh, I had to google this stands for! It depends. If it's a badly written book, stop reading it. I always say that life is too short for crappy books.

What's one book that intimidates you?

Any book that has horror, gore and/or violence.

If you could go to any literary destination, where would you go?

This is a fabulous question, though, can I get back to you?

How about non-book related hobbies? What do you do when you don't feel like reading?

Writing or basically just scribbling thoughts in my journal. I also enjoy blogging and hunting for vintage apparels and music on spotify.

What's your favorite book to movie adaptation?

The Help is probably my favourite. It's different, but in a good way. The entire cast especially Jessica Chastain (my bias) did a beautiful job.

Thank you for joining us today, Priscilla! Remember to check out Priscilla's blog, Priscilla and Her Books, and leave a comment or question.


  1. Thanks for stopping by for the interview!

    I love how you describe your bookshelves! It is probably one of my favorite answers I've seen so far!

    I still don't know what I think about Gone Girl. That one just leaves me pondering . . .

    I finally just read The Help a couple of months ago (audio version actually), so now I really want to see the movie!

  2. Enjoyed the interview! It took me a long time to finally realize that it not finishing a book was okay, but I still finish too many that I should've put down. And I'm not a big fan of horror/gore either! I think horror books are worse than movies, as nothing can compare to the imagination!
