3. I slightly prefer Tangled to Frozen.
4. One of my favorite authors is Jack Cavanaugh.

Livia Rachelle's Questions:
~What are your favorite juvenile/Y.A. fiction favorites?
Ummm...I like the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books, Freddy the Pig and its sequels, A Horse of Her Own, the Timber Ridge Riders books...ugh, my brain hurts. :P
~Thoughts on cosmetics, conventional, natural, none?
None. I really know nothing about it.
~Would you homeschool your own children and how serious a decision is this for you?
Yes, I think I would. I guess it would depend on the circumstances, but it'd be a pretty big decision.
~How do you feel about reading fad novels when they are popular such as Eragon, The Hunger Games, and The Book Thief? Do you discern serious differences in quality amongst them? Have you ever read and loved some before or after they were a fad?
Fad books. I don't like reading them while they're a fad, because then it's kind of like I'm *just* reading them because everyone else is, not because they're actually going to benefit me. However, I did read Eragon before it was really popular, and I read the sequels to it before I knew it was popular. ;) I've never read THG, and don't really plan to, but I did try Divergent and found it to be a bad book, really. The Book Thief is very well-written, whereas Eragon is less so, so I suppose that there are both amazing and awful books that are popular.
~If you could learn any language (fantasy, real and living, obscure, dead or dying) which would you learn?
Ooh...French, maybe? Or British. ;) I'd like to learn Quenya as well, because then I wouldn't need the little captions during LotR.
~If you could change your name to any name (again fantasy or real or obscure) what would it be?
Ahhhh...I don't know! I like "Galadriel," but I don't think it suits me. "Hermione" is too mainstream *adjusts hipster glasses*, "Galinda" is just ridiculous, ditto for "Eponine"...I wouldn't mind being named Elsa. Or Jane. Wow, I'm boring...ooh! I wouldn't mind being called Cosette, either. =)
