Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
I love dystopian fiction my favorite books are mostly dystopian. These are my favorite books because it's interesting to get emersed in a different world and escape to somewhere new. Most dystopian brings up new and exciting challenges for the protagonist to face and overcome. The last book on my list is not dystopian, but it has my next favorite thing; love. Though it's insta-love, it was written beautifully, and it's amazing.

1. Hunger Game Series.
2. Divergent Series.
3. Red Queen
4. Cinder
5.The Sun is also a Star.
Describe your desk
I have pictures of my desk on Instagram (authorkadian). My desk is dark brown and has a section at the back that I use as a bookshelf to store some of my books. In fact, it has a lot of storage that I use to store books. So there's a side compartment where I have 'how to' books stored. I have my planner and writing books in the corner of the desk. So pretty much my desk is covered in books but in a neat, organized way.
