Bookwise, my favourite is Lily-Josephine, by Kate Saunders, and, I happen to have a few favourite series; \
Jane Austen Stole My Boyfriend & Jane Austen Was My Best Friend, and The Debutantes, both by Cora Harrison, The Royal Match/Mess series (Pulling Princes, Stealing Princes, Dueling Princes and Dumping Princes) by Tyne O'Connell, Confessions of Georgia Nicholson by Louise Rennison, and To Catch A Prince (To Catch a Prince and The Frog Prince) by Gillian McKnight.
My all time favourite would be The Winnie Years (Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen & Thirteen Plus One) by Lauren Myracle. The Thirteen book came out when I turned 13, and I emailed the author telling her how special her stories were in my growing up, and she wrote back thanking me, then two-three years later, I tweeted her, and she still remembered me. Her books are still very special to me, even though they're young for me now. Although, I only recently found out she released a prequel, Tenin 2010, so I need to track that down (even though I'm nearly 19).
I'm not really sure what I'll read next, hopefully a new historical fiction book. I'm a bit immature for my age with reading, I'm quite comfortable with my YA novels, so I'm more drawn to them than adult ones (reading about things like sex doesn't bother me, but I dislike having to see it on quite a few pages, and so far, the adult ones I have read, have had at least one occurrence per chapter).
I'm not currently reading anything, but I think I may reread Pulling Princes, by Tyne O'Connell. In it, the main character, Calypso, is half American, half English, but attends an English boarding school for girls, full of snobby posh girls who look down on her for being American. She ends up falling for the prince of England, Freddie, and he in turn, falls for her as well. There's four books in the series, and I have all four, as well as possessing a few others that are quite similar. I seem to love books like that, it's almost like, the impossible teenage love story, and I'm a hopeless daydreaming romantic.
As far as a favourite book character, it's probably Georgia Nicholson from Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging. I have read the whole series, own about half the books, and the movie, and even at 18/19 (was about 14/15 when I got the movie and began the books) I still love them. Plus that, the movie features the once incredibly gorgeous, Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass, Nowhere Boy, Godzilla) as Robbie, Georgia's love interest. It's a pretty cheesy movie, but it's still fun to watch.have courage, and be kind.

What's your favorite book/series? I'm not hugely into series... I guess I like His Dark Materials and I loved a Series of Unfortunate Events when I was little. As for my favourite book, I'd say Slaughterhouse Five.
What book will you read next? My dad got me Gone Girl for Christmas and I haven't read it yet - I also have a collection of old Steinbeck novels that I bought from a vintage market the other day.
What are you currently reading? Russell Brand's autobiography haha
Who is your favorite character? Uh, can I use a children's book? Elizabeth from the Naughtiest Girl collection by Enid Blyton haha, I related to her so much as a child. As a 'serious' answer I'd say Atticus Finch I guess, or Denver from Beloved.olivia - eighteen (finally!), england but sometimes canada. i like names, film & philosophy.
i'm desperately maternal! some beloved ideas;
Emmett Crispin ○ Rosemary Oona (Romy)
○ Wilfred Jack (Wilfie) ○ Sibyl Georgia (Billie) ○ Rufus Eoghan ○ Mavis Margaret ○ Edgar Alec ○ Maude Evangeline ○ Hugh Baez (Hughie) ○ Fenella Briar (Nell)
