Is it just you running the show, or do you have help?
It’s just me. 🙂
Tell us a little about the things you post on your blog.
I post reviews, spotlight type posts, cover reveals, book tours, release blitzes, excerpt reveals, and things like that. I have also recently started to participate in a couple weekly features, so I’m excited about getting some new content posted to the blog.
What’s one thing you want everyone to know about your blog?
It’s just a little piece of me where I post about the books that I love.
What’s your most favorite thing about blogging?
Definitely meeting new authors, discovering new books, and making new book friends!
I can’t say that I really have a least favorite thing about blogging. I love it all.
Favorite swag to receive or to giveaway?
I love to receive any kind of swag, especially bookmarks, pens, and lip balm. I haven’t gotten to the point where I’ve been able to give any swag away, but I’d love to be able to do that someday.
Most prized book possession?
Definitely my signed books. I will always cherish those.
What is the absolute best moment you’ve had as a blogger?
I think any time I’m able to form a relationship with an author is pretty special. There are some that I really feel like I’ve gotten to know and can call a friend.
What is your favorite genre or sub-genre and why?
I love to read romance books, specifically NA, YA, and contemporary. I also enjoy romantic suspense and romantic comedy. I just love the feeling of watching these characters who seem so real to you fall in love and start their life together.
Have you ever read a book that completely destroyed you?
Yes! Stay by B.A. Wolfe completely wrecked me. There was a part of the book where I actually had to put my Kindle down and I broke down sobbing. It was a straight up ugly cry moment. My husband was sitting in the chair across from me and he looked at me like I was crazy once he realized I was crying over the book. LOL!
Have you ever not been able to finish a book? What did you do? How did it make you feel?
There have been a few times recently when I’ve been unable to finish the book. I just set it aside and move on to a different one. I feel bad when I’m unable to finish a book, but I keep telling myself it’s okay because you’re not going to like every single book you pick up.
