Five For Friday is a weekly Q&A I will be hosting dedicated to the people behind your favorite reviews ; the bloggers. I will be asking 5 questions to help us readers learn a little more about the bloggers we love to follow! Those who participate can use this platform however they want! This is my way of showing appreciation to the community that has welcomed me with open arms. To kick off our first Five For Friday post let me introduce you to Lucia Valovčíková from Reading Is My Breathing!!!
My name is Lucia, I am 24 years old and I live in Prague, Czech Republic but originally I come from Slovakia. I have always been a passionate reader since early age, with exception of 5 years when I was studying marketing and international trade at a University. Last year I discovered Goodreads and met plenty of avid readers and writers all around the world and decided to express my love for books via blogging. I read and review paranormal books (YA and adult), contemporary romance (adult and new adult), Twilight fanfiction stories and I hate love triangles in books. When I am not reading or promoting books on my blog, I love swimming, watching ice-hockey, going to the cinema or just meeting and having fun with my friends!

Q & A
Q: You are on a deserted island and you can have only 1 book to read for the rest of your life (no eReaders!) what book would it be and why?
Lucia: This is the hardest question ever. I love couple of series but since it would be impossible to pick just one book I am going to choose a standalone novel. And because I simply cannot decide, I will give you two. If you haven’t read the following books, you are missing out!
1. Painted Faces by L.H. Cosway – this contemporary adult novel was funny, sexy and emotional. It is probably the most unique book I have ever read and I loved everything about it. You can check out my full review here
2. The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay – this story was pure perfection. Beautiful writing, thoughtful ideas and interesting characters. This book is unforgettable and it is one of the kind. You can out check my full review here
Q. What is your favorite quote?
“I was head over heels in love with her. No, that didn’t describe it. I was tear my fucking heart out and throw it at her, beg her to take it into hers. I was falling from the greatest heights with no safety net below. I was giving everything of my own life for hers, giving up every inch of my soul so she could wear it proudly. I was a former king on my knees in front of the queen. A jester begging for a chance. I was powerless, helpless and at her mercy.”
― Karina Halle, The Dex-Files
And one that stucked with me forever after reading it:
“Push your boundaries, that’s what they’re there for.”
― Colleen Hoover, Slammed
Q. Describe your ultimate book boyfriend.
Lucia: Daemon Black from Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
He is cheeky, sexy, & sarcastic. A bad boy. But when he loves someone, he is the most loyal and devoted person ever. He would do anything to protect his loved ones and to make them happy. He is perfect! Oh and one more thing…he is an alien. So his special abilities definitely come handy in various situations 🙂

Something old: Journey
Favorite song: Faithfully
Something contemporary: Florence + the Machine
Favorite song: Shake It Out
Q. What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?
