Kick Off To Armchair BEA



Hey Guys! So yes this year my BEA hopes were kind of dashed but not in a horrible way. As most of you already know I am expecting my fourth child! So I had to put BEA off this year just because there was no way that I was going to be able to go being pregnant especially with the baby coming in two months. So instead I am going to participate in the wonderful Armchair BEA!! This is such an awesome way for those of us who could not attend the wonderful BEA to still participate in our own way! So to kick things off here is the first post, an introduction to all of us wonderful bloggers.
  1. 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  24 a wonderful mother to 3 boys and a fourth along the way. I work full time, well now I am off for maternity leave. I have been blogging since Sept 2010 and I absolutely love it! I actually kind of stumbled into it. I have this great love of reading and to be honest my friends and family do not quite get my obsession with it. So I was just browsing the internet one night and came across a book blog and I was hooked! I honestly had no idea at the time that there was this huge community of book obsessed people just like me :)
  2. What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012? I am currently reading Linger by Maggie Stiefvater which is absolutely amazing! Oh wow my favourite book for 2012 that's a hard one. I would have to say I loved Embrace by Jessica Shrivington and Pure by Jennifer L Armetrout
  3. Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you. I have a huge obsession with reality television. I don't know why but anything to do with reality t.v and I am pretty much hooked. 
  4. What is your favorite feature on your blog (i.e. author interviews, memes, something specific to your blog)? Well I have been doing a little blog reorganizing over the last week or so but I would have to say my favourite feature would have to be author interviews/guest posts. I just think its amazing how they will take time out of their busy schedules to indulge us readers!
  5. Where do you see your blog in five years? I see my blog flourishing. I honestly do not think I will stop my blog any time soon. Sure life might get hectic sometimes so my posts might be a little lacking but I am so in love with this blog and have worked so hard to maintain it that I just see me doing exactly what I am doing now just with more content
  6. If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why? Oh that one is surprisingly easy. If I could have dinner with any author it would be Lara Adrian. I absolutely adore her. She is one of my favourite paranormal romance authors. 
  7. What is your favorite part about the book blogging community? Is there anything that you would like to see change in the coming years? My favourite part of the book blogging community would have to be the absolute joy that everyone shares in one common entity. It is amazing how much the written word can bring people together. From all different walks of life and lifestyles but to share one common love is absolutely amazing. 
  8. Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How? My reading tastes have definitely changed since I started blogging. I find now that I am much more eclectic in my reading choices. I love a little bit of everything.

This has been so much fun! I cannot wait to continue to participate in Armchair BEA!!!

  1. Wow, I'm impressed that you can find the time to read *and* blog with three children!

    We actually shut off our satellite service because we couldn't stand reality TV. LOL People must love it, though, or it wouldn't survive, right?

    Best wishes for a safe and healthy 4th birth!

  4. I think it's great how the internet can bring so many like-minded folks together. I was always a "quiet" reader until I discovered book blogging, and now I seem to talk about what I read all of the time.

  5. I'm so impressed that you make reading such a priority. That will make such an impression on you kids as they develop as readers!

  6. Three boys and one on the way... you are a saint! LOL

    I really enjoyed the Linger series. It was slow at times for me, but I loved the take on werewolves and the love story was really sweet. :)

    My intro!

  9. Congrats on the baby to come! As far as reasons go to miss BEA, that's a pretty good one. ;-)

    It is amazing how the written word can bring people from all walks of life together. I think that's one of the coolest things about going to actual BEA, how a bunch of introverty book lovers are so at ease chatting with each other from the start. =)
