Hey y’all! I’m still sort of in shock and awe over this one. I’ve been nominated for a blogger award. I can’t say that’s ever happened to me and considering I’ve only had my blog since mid-May, frankly I’m flattered. I’m crazy excited about it though and still wrapping my head around it. 😀
I want to say thank you very much to Mad Lit: QuirkyMadsReads. If you haven’t checked out this lady’s blog, you really should!
★ Here are the rules:
- Thank the blogger that nominated you
- Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gives you
- Nominate 11 blogs that you think deserve the award
- Give them 11 questions to answer
- Let the bloggers know you nominated them
★ Here are the 11 questions that I need to answer:
Do you prefer paperback or hardcover books?
When I get the chance to read physical books anymore, I don’t care which it is. I love both!
What do you do to get out of a reading slump?
Generally I don’t have these, but if/when I do, I clean, I play video games, and I do Buti.
What got you into blogging?
This one is a bit of a very long answer which I could make a complete post over… but I’m not going to go into here. So to try to sum it up, I decided to start blogging on my birthday. I had various reasons, some pretty personal… It wasn’t a birthday present or anything like that, just a way for me to be able to talk about the books I read. No one I actually know in my day to day life is into books like I am, so I needed an outlet. I also needed something to keep me busy outside of reading itself, because I’m not a huge fan of TV, or movies. (This from the person that has worked in two video stores.) It was a hobby at first, for sure, and now I just love it, hobby or not. Believe it or not, in the last few months, this blog has gotten me through some pretty rough things.
Would you prefer your favorite book series to become a movie franchise or a television series?
As much as I’m not a fan of TV or movies, I could see this one. My favorite series (And yes, it is romance) is about a clan of warriors that can turn into dragons. The books alone typically have me devouring them due to the high action in them, so yes, I could easily see them translated into movies.
Do you buy your books in a bookstore, or off the internet?
Most of my books these days come from Kindle Unlimited, or end up being ARCs. Typically everything is off the internet. I couldn’t even tell you the last time I bought a book from the bookstore.
How often do you buy books?
Considering how much I read, not often.
What is a popular book that you dislike, but everyone else loves?
I’ve seen people on both sides of this argument, but for me it’s Gray. Yes, as in the new Fifty Shades of Gray. It makes me twitch to even look at it.
Who would be your fictional one true pairing?
I can’t even jest about this one… Someone hand me Mr. Darcy. 😛 No, I’m not joking, I really love that character.
What is your favorite genre?
Romance, all the way. That and all the sub-genres of it. 😉
If you could reread a series over for the first time which would it be?
The Dragonfury series by Coreene Callahan (You can find it on Goodreads!) I’m impatiently awaiting the next installment of this series.
Who is your favorite author?
I’m not even sure I can answer this. I don’t have a hands down, all time favorite author, I have -many- of them. They’ve changed over the years but to list a few. In no particular order…
Kat Martin <– Very first historical romance I ever read was by this woman. I loved it… and I was flat out hooked on Romance.
Dara Joy <– Yup, I said it. I flat out miss this woman’s books.
★ My 11 questions for those I nominate:
- Not everyone is a book blogger; What do you blog about?
- Do you schedule your blogs or write them on the fly?
- What do you do in your spare time?
- How much time do you actively spend blogging?
- What was the last book you bought?
- Every blogger has their drinking vice when blogging, what is yours? Coffee, tea, wine, water?

- Did you have professional help or did you create your blog yourself?
- If you could travel anywhere in the world and stay for a year, where would it be?
