It's that time again! Book Blogger Appreciation Week! Time to celebrate all of us out there who devote our time and effort to the love of everything bookish. Are you a blogger? You can participate too! Just click here and get started!
In honor of this week I'm interviewing a fellow blogger. Alison from The Cheap Reader!
Sneaks reading in everywhere. Book in purse at all times!
2) How would you describe your bookish tastes? Do you have a favorite genre?
My bookish taste tends to run a bit young. I gobble up young adult, middle grade and even children's books like nobody's business! I really love fantasy/science fiction books. I can't get enough of them.
3) If you could live in any world from a book, where would you choose to live?
I know it's a cliche answer but the world of Harry Potter! They're the only books that I constantly find myself living in within my imagination. I'm in the process of re-reading the series for the 6/7th time and I still get caught up in wanting to go to Hogwarts.
4) What is your favorite part about being a blogger?
My favorite part of blogging is getting to talk about books with other people. I don't get a chance to talk about the books I read with people in real life so it's fantastic to find other people to gush or rant to. It's great to talk about a book with someone else who loved it or even someone who didn't like it.
5) How long have you been blogging, and what is your most memorable moment?
I've been blogging since June 2011. I think my most memorable moment was when I got my first review request less than a month into blogging! I didn't start my blog to get review books. I just wanted an outlet to talk about books. It was quite a shock to get that email. I still couldn't believe that someone wanted a baby blogger like me to review their book.
6) Finally, and thanks for answering, what book would you totally recommend to others right now?
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness. The book is mind-blowingly good. It's a fantastic book but it's also proof that YA books can be entertaining and explore really deep, serious issues at the same time.
Thanks Alison for stopping by! Don't forget to go visit her blog, and check out all the people participating in BBAW! Happy celebrating!
