Can you tell us a bit about yourself?Well I'm a 27 year old (actually 28 next month - eep) who loves to read (duh!). I got married in 2009 and we have a little devil named Alek who likes to keep me busy. I live in Canada - the maritimes. I have a degree in Finance but since the timing was right, I took an extra year off to be with my lil one since I don't plan on having any more. :)
Can you tell us a bit about your blog?
I read books, I like to either complain or rave about said books; you can find all of this on my blog! I also do cover reveals and I love being part of blog tours which brings amazing authors over to visit.
How and Why did you start blogging?I was reviewing on some buggy Facebook book app for about a year, then on Goodreads for 9 months when I started looking into blogging. I noticed it was a great way to get more inside the book scene; Meeting authors, making other book loving friends, and really getting in the know about new releases etc. I didn't really know what blogging entailed but it's been great learning. Lucky for me, my hubby's a programmer so anything fancy up on my blog I have to give credit to him. It's hard work, much harder than I expected (like everyone else) but I love every thing about it. I've already made amazing friends and just that has been worth it!
How long have you been blogging for?It was September 9th, 2011 when I finally took the plunge. So almost 5 months.
Can you sum up your blogging experience so far in 5 words?Hell of a good time!
What was your favourite book as a child and why?When I was a kid I'd really pick up anything and everything from the library. My favourites were always RL Stine books.
Do you judge a book by it's cover?Oof I'm a total cover whore. I'll still read a book if the cover is ugly, but I have read books based on the cover alone. Some without even reading the blurb - I know it's shameful! O_O
If you could have dinner with 2 characters from any books who would they be and why?Charley Davidson from the Darynda Jones series by the same name. She is Hilarious! I would have a blast conversing with that woman!
Jordan from Catching Jordan because she is just a great, fun person. She's so down to earth and cares about things other than guys and hair.
Which fictional hottie do you wish was real?Eric Northman, and if you've read the books, there's no need to explain why!
What are your favourite 3 books of 2011?-Divergent by Veronica Roth
-Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
-Ashfall by Mike Mullin
Genre: Ya - dystopianMythical Creature: Necromancer
