11 Questions from Breathe In Book:

  • How long have you been blogging?
 A lil over 4 months
  • Why did you start blogging?
 I loved reading and had seen and read so many other blogs and it looked fun, I also saw that it was like a community and I wanted to be apart of that.
  • How did you come up with the name for your blog?
 I got feedback from FB and another blogger had helped me with the name.
  • What are your hopes for your blog?
Just to have fun and to be able to put information out there that others would enjoy. Meeting authors is exciting too.
  • Do you read mainly traditionally published or Indie/Self published books?
You know if you asked me this before I started blogging I would have said "huh?"
I didn't know the difference and at first it was all traditional but then I started getting contacted by a lot of Indie Authors and I have to tell you, I love Indie books but I read both even though here lately most of my reviews have been for Indies.
  • Who is your most favorite & least favorite characters (from any book) and why?
This is a hard one because I have a lot of favorites so I will say my least favorite and that is Volcrian from Sora's Quest by T. L. Shreffler, I don't want to  give anything away but lets just say he reminds me of Jeepers Creepers. And my favorite...hhhmmm.... I am going to have to say Ren from Tiger's Curse, I mean he's a man that READS!! lol He is also very smart, romantic, and from the description given form Colleen Houck, very sexy.
  • How many books are on your To Be Read & To Be Reviewed piles?
Ummm....are we suppose to keep those separate? lol I dont really have a To Be Reviewed pile, but I do keep track of the books I review in a folder on my computer but I dont keep count, now my TBR pile...wow...uummm... if my husband knew he'd kill me but its like over 2500. what can I say I really love books!! lol
