So since I can't go to BEA with everyone this year (extremely jealous) I decided to take part in Armchair BEA, so that I can still be there in spirit. Hope you're all having fun! So to start out the organizers are doing a blogger interview for everyone taking part so that we can all get to know one another. So here goes...
1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
I'm Andrea. :) HI! I'm from Toronto area and I've been blogging for about 8 months. I got into blogging because I love talking about books and really wanted to learn about new books and authors. I also got a lot of advice from some friends about how great it was and how you meet such great people (which I have done as well, I have some great friends through this).
2. What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012?
Currently I'm reading Every Day, Every Hour by Natasa Dragnic, from Random House Canada. My favourite read so far of 2012 has been Grave Mercy by Robin Lafevers. It was amazing, a monastery that trains assassins, there was so much action throughout, and a very slow burning love story which you don't see a lot these days (I find more of the insta-love in books).
3. Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?
My reading tastes have changed quite a bit since I started blogging, I find I'm more open to different books and authors. I used to focus a lot more on the chick lit genre and since I've started blogging, I've gotten into more science fiction books and dystopian.
4. Where do you see your blog in five years?
Hopefully five years from now I see my blog thriving. I hope I can take part in more events and write about them. As well I kind of hope I have my blog more under control and able to have things scheduled further in advance and have more posts going up. At the moment I'm a little slow going with reading and reviewing.
5. If you could eat dinner with one author or character, who would it be and why?
I would love to have dinner with Alma Katsu, author of The Taker and The Reckoning (out June 19). I would love to talk to her more about her books (which are absolutely amazing!) and if you follow her on twitter, she seems like such a fun person.
