Hi there! I’m participating in Armchair BEA this week, which means if you’re a regular reader the blog might look different from its usual scheduled programming for the next few weeks. This is my Armchair BEA introduction post.
1. Tell us a bit about yourself: How long have you been blogging? Where are you from? How did you get into blogging?
Hi! I’m from Texas, and I’ve been blogging since December 2012, so not quite two and a half years. I started blogging because I was getting ready to graduate from college and I was afraid I’d start missing being able to talk to fellow bookworms.
2.What is one book everyone should read?
Anyone who’s been around my blog before is probably sick of me talking about this book, but I push I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson on everyone I can! It’s my favorite book I’ve read since I started blogging.
3. Share your favorite blog post on your blog. (aka written by you!)
One day, after being particularly frustrated with the way we tend to talk about books for young adults, I wrote a post called What Books Taught Me. I poured a lot of myself into that post and it’s still my favorite post I’ve ever written.
4.What book are you most looking forward to reading this summer?
So many, but one book I really want to prioritize is finally spending some time and reading The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling!
5. Take a picture of your bookshelf and share it with us! 🙂 (#ABEAShelfie)
This is kinda an older picture because the light in my room isn’t the best, which means there’s only a few times a day there’s a chance of getting even a decent picture, but here’s part of my bookshelf:
Hard to get a sense of scale, but it’s two large cases with five shelves each. I absolutely love them! My dad made them a few years ago for me for Christmas.
