READER OF THE SPOTLIGHT

CRYSTAL

Our Reader of the Spotlight this week is the one and only… Crystal Moody. It was my pleasure, interviewing the beautiful woman. She’s a  full time student. Going to college was a perfect opportunity and Crystal took it. She got tired of working jobs, and went to college to earn a career. A couple of things people may not know about Crystal: She knows Latin (the dead language) and She love’s writing poetry and astrology.

  1. Outside of reading what do you like to do? Honestly, I like to watch trashy reality TV. It’s so addicting!!
  2. What is your all time favorite book? It’s so hard to choose so I’ll tell you what I like about a book. It has to be well-written. I like to feel the emotion of each character. The actual story has to be believable and by the end, it has to leave me wishing for more.
  3. What are you reading right now? I just finished SK Lessly’s Desired yesterday. Up next is LaQuette’s Heart Divided, sequel to Heart of the Matter. LaQuette has 3 books published on Amazon, two IR, her Heart series (not what she calls them but you get the gist). Those books are really good, check them out if you haven’t read them.
  4. Favorite book you’ve read last year? I have a top six but I’ll give my top two. The first is Flawed by Francette Phal. Totally loved that. My number two is called Just To Be Loved by Vivian Rose Lee. That book had me in tears but it was really good!
  5. Favorite place to read? In peace. It really doesn’t matter where, I just require peace.
  6. What makes you love a book? The fact that I want more at the end.
  7. What will inspire you to recommend a book? If I’m left mind blown. The book has to have equal parts heat and action.
  8. Favorite genre? IR/MC, historical, paranormal.
  9. Do you have a reading snack? Does water count? Gotta stay hydrated!
  10. How do you feel about giving bad/negative reviews? I really don’t like to. Honestly, I’ve only given a few because I usually choose to not do a review if I didn’t like the book.
  11. How many books do you usually read in a month? Minimum of eight. I’m a serial reader lol.
  12. The longest you’ve gone without reading? A week, almost two.
  13. What would cause you to stop reading a book halfway through? If it is horrible. The plot, the writing. I recently read a book that read so high school drama-ish. I had to stop. I was really upset because I had been waiting on pins and needles for that book to become available.
  14. Name a book that made you angry? La Sposa by Sienna Mynx. I loved the book so much!!! It made me angry because it ended on a juicy part! I was like: noooo!!!
  15. If you could be a character in a book, who would it be and why? It would have to be Melanie from Forgiveness and Second Chances. I love her and that’s my favorite Ancelli book, by the way. I chose her because of her strength. I’ve always said that she had to be really strong to leave her daughter in Jeremy’s care. She survived through a lot of hurt. I admire her strength.
  16. Who are your favorite authors? Thayer King, Theodora Taylor, Eve Vaughn, Koko Brown, Yvette Hines, Pepper Pace, Violette Dubrinsky, Ancelli, Sienna Mynx, Lolah Lace, Lavender Parker, Kaia Bennett, and Trevion Burns…just to name a few.
  17. Have you ever considered writing a book?  I have. I like to dabble.
  18. What makes you buy a book? Blurb, and if there is a positive buzz going around about the book. But, of course, I have to read the sample if I’m hesitant. If that’s good, I’m getting it. But, if the book is by one of my favorite authors, after I read the blurb, it’s an automatic one click.
  19. Name your most memorable character? The three main characters from LaShawn Vasser’s The Stranger Next To Me. I was just telling someone about that book the other day, talking about the characters. I loved that book. That’s another book to check out if anyone hasn’t read it yet.
  20. If you could change places with a character for one day, who would it be and why? Don Giovanni Battaglia. I really don’t know why other than he’s the Don and he’s bad! I like that.
  21. What book made you laugh? It had to be one of Tiana Laveen’s Saint series. Saint was sitting in a restaurant, just cursing out his wife’s ex-boyfriend. I hooted with laughter!
  22. What book made you cry? I mentioned it before and it really did have me ugly crying. Just To Be Loved by Vivian Rose Lee. I recommended that book to a lot of people but warned them to have tissues on standby because when I say I cried…there was snot!
  23. What makes a character an Alpha? Just being bad and taking control of his woman. He should be able to stand up for his woman and take on any guy that tries to take his woman from him.
