1. What book did you not expect to love but did?

I Take You

2. Are you a fast reader or a slow reader? How many books do usually you read in a month?

The answer to this question varies. I can be either depending on what is going on my event calendar.

6. What is the status of your bookshelf? Overflowing, just right, chaotic, pretty...

Just right. I just did a purge and things are somewhat organized. Although, the bags of books are still waiting in the garage to be donated.

See my Stacking the Shelves posts (here).

8. Are you the kind of reader who sticks to your TBR?

hmmm, kinda

9. What is your favorite food? Anything you are craving for right now?

hamburger and fries ;-)

10. Name one or more books you badly want to read but find intimidating.

This is one I tried reading when it first came out, but quit. Maybe because I wasn't in the mood for it and for it's chunky size. So, it sits in my TBR pile. But since the tv version has been released, I want to give it another try.
