2015 Book Blogger Love-A-Thon: Questionnaire

The Book Blogger Love-A-Thon is hosted by Alexa Loves Books.

I'm so excited to be participating in the 2015 Book Blogger Love-A-Thon! I missed out on last year's event, so I'm really glad that I could take part this year! I'm looking forward to checking out everyone's posts today and tomorrow!

Here's a little bit more about the blog and me:

1. What’s your name?

2. Where in the world are you blogging from?
Florida, where I've lived since 2008, but I'll always be a New Yorker at heart. :D

3. How did you get into blogging in the first place?
My cousin Ally and I didn't have anyone else to talk about books with besides each other, so we decided to start a book blog where we could chat about books as much as we wanted!

4. How did you come up with your blog name?
Credit for that goes entirely to Ally. We both wrote down possible names and then picked the one we liked best, which was one from her list.

5. What genre do you read and review the most on your blog?
Mostly YA paranormal and fantasy.

6. What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews?
The occasional discussion post, which I've been trying to make more of an effort to write more frequently this year. I also write Game of Thrones episode recaps.

7. Best blogging experience so far?
Being able to connect with others who love reading as much as I do. There are no words to describe the feeling when someone else TOTALLY understands your love for a certain book, character, etc.!

8. Favorite thing about the blogging community?
The camaraderie.

9. Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2015!
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater, A Court of Thorns and Roses and Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas, Prudence by Gail Carriger, and Shaming the Devil by Melina Marchetta.

10. What’s an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read?
Anything by Melina Marchetta, especially her Lumatere Chronicles series. I know a lot of you probably already know how amazing her books are, but I think even more readers should get to know how awesome they are!

11. Which book boy or girl would be your book BFF?
I think I'd get along really well with Alexia from Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series. We're both really sarcastic, and I'm possibly also soulless like she is? XD

12. Apart from reading, what are your other hobbies or interests?
Photography/goofing around with Photoshop, knitting, going for long walks.

13. Apart from book shopping, what else do you like shopping for?
Craft supplies. Stores like Michael's pose a serious danger to my wallet.

14. At a party, the DJ suddenly changes the song – and it’s your song. What song would be playing?
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding?" by Elvis Costello & The Attractions.

15. Pick out either a book you want turned into a film/TV show, or a film/TV show you want turned into a book.
I'd love to see the Parasol Protectorate series adapted for either the big or small screen!

Please be sure to leave me the links to your questionnaires because I'd love to take a look at them! Thanks for stopping by! :)


  1. The Lumatere Chronicles is an amazing series, and totally deserves all of the love! I actually want to reread them this year, just because I've seen some bloggers chatting while they read it for the first time. So. Good. Marchetta's writing is so. dang. good. Ahem. Also, I love that you're excited for the two Sarah J. Maas books we are getting this year - so am I!

    Thanks for joining the Love-a-Thon!

    1. Thanks so much for hosting again! :) The Lumatere Chronicles has such a special place in my heart; it made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me a lifetime fan of Melina Marchetta's. And how lucky are we to be getting not one but TWO SJM books this year?!

  2. I can't wait for A Court of Thorns and Roses! I've heard such amazing things, and I know that it's going to be great :)

    I can't wait to see more of your posts!

    1. I can't decide which Sarah J. Maas book I'm more excited for- ACOTAR or Queen of Shadows! They're both going to be amazing! :)

  3. OMG i could spend so much time (and money!) at Michael's haha. I have considered reading the Parasol Protectorate series but I never pick it up! I recently read Finnikin of the Rock and I didn't love it, but I want to give the second book a shot because I hear it gets better. Everyone raves about Melina Marchetta's contemps, but I don't read contemps!

    1. I don't read much contemporary, but Melina Marchetta's are an exception. I love her writing so much! The Parasol Protectorate series is another favorite of mine; I was sorry that I waited so long to give it a try!

  4. Great answers! I really need to read Lumatere Chronicles and Parasol Protectorate series. I do have the Parasol Protectorate books, so hopefully I will get the chance to binge read them this year. I am so excited for the books that you are looking forward to this year! There are so many great ones coming out!
    Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my intro post! :D

    1. I binge read the Parasol Protectorate at the beginning of this year, and it was so much fun. I love the humor in those books! I hope you love them as much as I did!

  5. Gah! The Raven King & Queen of Shadows - DYING to get my greedy little hands on those ♥ PS-BLLB is next on my list, I should (FINALLY) be starting in soon - hopefully today, if not in the next few days :D And your love for the Parasol Protectorate definitely has me eager to get into that series as well! As for the Lumatere Chronicles, well EVERYONE seems to rave about those so I need to get off my butt and get caught up XD


We love hearing from our readers and do our best to reply. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment!
