Armchair BEA is for those people who cannot visit Book Expo America but still want to join in the fun. I really wish I was in NYC with my fellow bloggers who are attending BEA (Book Expo America), but sadly I can't. It all good though I’m more than happy to be a part of Armchair BEA!
Hello There fellow blogger and oddball book enthusiasts My name is Melissa,I'm 20 years old and Ive been blogging sporadically since June 2011. I started blogging because of a Blog called The Book Butterfly(The site is now down) I constantly read the post and looked forward to new ones being put up.After being introduced to that blog I started looking at more and more.Eventually I got the idea into my head that creating a blog would be fun.(SN: It definitely is.)
The first blog I started was a personal one on that I posted up poems I created and things like that.After awhile though I started the Book blog and the rest, as they say, is history. :)
2.Where in the world are you blogging from? Tell a random fact or something special about your current location. Feel free to share pictures.
I'm blogging from the south east-side in Chicago and as of this moment my puggle is on my lap being a pest.It raining and my Labrador is freaking out trying to hind behind the couch even though he's obviously too big.Something special about my location is that it almost takes a 12 step program to tell people where I live.
3.If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
Alright so if I could have dinner with any author it would be J.K Rowling and I would Politely hound her about all things Harry Potter and her life.
If I had to pick a fictional character to have dinner with it would be Magnus Bane from all the shadowhunter series by Cassandra Clare.. He seems like he'd be a fun time and since he's immortal have tons of stories to share.
4.Have you previously participated in Armchair BEA? What brought you back for another year? If you have not previously participated, what drew you to the event?
No,I have never participated in Armchair BEA and I honestly just found out about it a few hours ago. I decided to participated because of slight BEA envy and I wanted to become more connected out in the blogger community.From what i've seen bloggers are a friendly bunch.
5.Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
In case you haven't guessed it already I'm a huge dog lover.I have three and each one is like my furry baby.Also I'm partially named after the actress from the little house on the prairie "Melissa Gilbert" My dads name is also Gilbert.
