I guess I was around 4 or 5ish?
17. What is your favorite book you had to read in school?

Of Mice and Men. I just loved it!

I don't just have one, I have a few so I won't be listing.
20. What is your favorite genre?

I love YA, Fantasy, Chick Lit and Dystopian.

Yes, all the time.
23.Which book do you wish had a sequel?

It depends how busy I get, but I can usually read a book within a few days.

Beautiful Creatures! It was just awful, with bad acting and the plot was completly different to the book. I'm so glad they didn't make anymore.

I think modern day books should be taught in schools. It's all good children learning about classics, but it's not the books that are really going to get them reading. I also find that they would relate more to modern day novels.
50. Which books should be banned from all schools?
I don't think books should be banned from schools, unless they are offensive to a degree where children shouldn't be reading them.
