Can you tell us abit about yourself?

Well, my name's Megan and I am a 23 year old book addict! Who doesn't love sitting down with an awesome book and being taken into that world, falling in love with characters and going on a journey to forbidden, unexplored and sometimes scary new places. I know I do! I also love to listen to music and watch television. I am a massive Glee fan, who just happens to (a little overobessively) love actor Darren Criss!!! :)

Can you tell us abit about your blog?

My blog is a blog for all things Young Adult (YA) YA is a genre I love and I don't think anything has even come close to beating it. I feature reviews of some of the most awesome new YA I love and am a big supporter of Indie/self published authors. I love to feature new/upcoming YA authors though my YA feature every Friday as well as organise blog tours for various authors.
How and Why did you start blogging?

I started blogging as I had been following many awesome blogs for a while and thought I could do that. I loved reading and shared my opinions on books I had read with my friends and sister. Why not share it with the world? LOL That is basically way I started blogging and what a journey it has been!
How long have you been blogging for?

I have been blogging since March 2nd 2011 and I remember this date as it is my best friends birthday :) I can't believe in less that two months I will be celebrating one year blogging.
Can you sum up your blogging experience so far in 5 words?

Eye-opening, inspirational, exciting, fun & shocking
What was your favourite book as a child and why?

Whenever asked this question even though I have read loads of books, one always springs to mind. I used to love reading the Mr Majeika books by Humphrey Carpenter.  They are about a teacher who is in fact a magician and the adventures he goes on with his class!
Do you judge a book by it's cover?
I do and I know this may be wrong! If I haven't read a book by the author before or the book isn't apart of a series, it is the book cover that usually makes me pick it up and see what is it about! : /

If you could have dinner with 2 characters from any books who would they be and why?

Oh that is such a hard question!! There are loads of fictional characters I love especially the guys he he. I will pick a guy and a girl to be fair. At the moment the guy would be Ryan Beckford from The Childe Series by CA Kunz. I love him!!! The girl would probably be.... oh scrap that it would have to be another guy, he he, Seth Waters from A Witch in Winter by Ruth Warburton. Hot!!

Which fictional hottie do you wish was real?

Really!!! Look at the trouble I had with the question above! There are loads!! fictional guys are hot! Emm.. there is Seth from a Witch in Winter, Ryan from The Childe Series, Ron from Harry Potter, Jacob from Twilight.. oh dear, how about oh Alex from the Angel Trilogy by L.A.Weatherly he is so hot! All these hotties have GF's though that might suck my blood or cast a spell on me being as their girlfriends are either, witches, half vampires or half angels!

Is there an author whose books you would recommend that have made an impact on you?

The Childe Series by CA.Kunz. I am reading this series at the minute and I love it.

What are your favourite 3 books of 2011?

The Childe by CA.Kunz
Far from War by Jeffery David Payne (one of my surprising faves!)
