Blogger Interview – Jackie from Bookworm Mom!

About Jackie, the reader/bloggerInterview_Blogger_Jackie2

What’s the name of your blog? Links?

My blog is called Bookworm Mom.

The link to my blog site is http://bookworm-mom.blogspot.com

The link to my blog’s Facebook page is http://facebook.com/bookwormmomblog

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!

Least favorite? 

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.

Blogger Interview – Bobbie Nicole from Bobbie’s Book Blog and Reviews

I am thrilled to kick off my interviews with Bobbie Nicole from Bobbie’s Book Blog and Reviews! I first met Bobbie Nicole when she was working with another blog and read and reviewed my debut novel, Our Moon. Since then, she’s become a member of my street team/reader group, Jennifer’s Chapter Chicks, and a dear friend! We have similar senses of humor and I love chatting with her about books. With no further ado, I introduce you to Bobbie Nicole!

About Bobbie Nicole the reader/blogger:

What’s the name of your blog?

Bobbie’s Book Blog and Reviews

Is it just you running it, or do you have help?

I have help! My best friend, Amanda, helps with scheduling post and reading/replying to emails and helping with reviews. I also have two other girls who help with reviewing, Tiffany and Amber.

Tell us a little about the things you post on your blog.

We post anything book related, promo posts, reviews, cover reveals, author interviews, character interviews, author spotlights. Any and everything book related!

What’s one thing you want everyone to know about your blog?

If you send us a request to share or review something we will get it done! Our team of reviewers love all genres and we strive to get everything posted and live when the authors need it to be.

What’s your most favorite thing about blogging?

The books! Getting to read and learn about all the amazing books!

Least favorite?

Sometimes it can get overwhelming with all the things to get posted especially if I am having a hectic day with my kids (I have 3) or my day job and I forget to check the emails. But at the end of the day I love what I do and will continue to do it.

Favorite swag?

Bookmarks! Amanda and myself collect signed bookmarks!

Most prized book possession?

They are all prized to me. lol I love all my books!

What is the absolute best moment you’ve had as a blogger?

When I got two free tickets to go to an author signing event this September!

I love them all but I favor Romance. Something about love stories get me.

Have you ever read a book that completely destroyed you?

Yes! Alexa Loved By T.R Cupak! Ugh I ugly cry every time!

Have you ever not been able to finish a book? What did you do? How did it make you feel?

I have. And it made me feel horrible for the author because I know how much hard work they put into their books. When I just couldn’t finish it I was honest with the author and still pimped the crap out of them on my blog because just because I didn’t like it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
