I'm excited to participate in Armchair BEA this year. I thought about it last year, but not only was I new to the blogging scene, but I had just finished school. This year I feel more up to participating.
Here is my 'self' interview. Enjoy!
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
I am a currently single school librarian who loves to talk about books. While I get to do this to a certain degree in my job, I've found writing things down not only helps me remember what I've read and what I thought about what I read. I also use the blogs to share the books I've read with my local colleagues. I've found this is easier than creating long lists and emailing them to everybody. I've been blogging for 1 year and 4 months and am really enjoying it.
What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012?
I've read some great books this year, but I've still got stacks of books to read. But the three books I've enjoyed the most this year are: Cinder by Marissa Mayers, Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen, and The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen.
If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
This is a tough question as I can think of many authors and/or characters that I would like to meet. I'll keep it to one of each.
Author: I would love to have dinner with Shannon Hale. I've heard her speak and read and loved her books. She is a fabulous presenter and I have no doubt a great dinner companion.
Character: Kendra from Brandon Mull's Fablehaven series. I admire her bravery and loyalty, but I relate best to her quieter more introspective nature.
What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?
This is another tough question because there are many awesome locations among the lots of books that I have read. I think though that I would have to say Fablehaven (my favorite series if you hadn't already figured it out :)). I'd love to explore the environment and see some of the amazing creatures that live there.
Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?
This is one of most surprising things to me about blogging. My tastes have altered to some degree. Middle Grade is still by far my favorite genre to read, but I have a growing interest in Young Adult literature that didn't really exist before I started blogging. I guess the wonderful bloggers whose posts I enjoy reading have rubbed off on me! Thanks to them all!
Thanks for visiting. I'd love to receive comments!
