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!
Day 1 Introductions.
us a bit about yourself: How long have you been blogging? Where are
you from? How did you get into blogging?
fellow bloggers/blog readers my name is Melissa and I've been
blogging for the last 5 yrs give or take since 2011.I'm from Chicago
and I got into blogging after discovering one of my friends blog. From
there I started reading different book blogs and decided to start my
own.So far I have 3 blogs two for personal uses and on for a college
class. I really only keep my book blog up to date and the other
personal on only every now and then.
do you loving reading and blogging?
love to read because it gets me out of my own head and I can just
explore the mind of someone else s for a little bit. I I enjoy
blogging because I like giving my opinions on something I love be it
mainly books,music,or something else entirely
is your theme song?
so in an awesome world my theme song would be the opening music for
the Harry Potter movies but alas while the world is awesome it is not
that awesome.*Le sigh* I can dream though.
is one book everyone should read?
book everyone should read especially if your interested in becoming a
educator is Educating Esme:Diary of A Teacher's First Year by Esmé
Raji Codell. I
loved this book on so many levels its not even funny. If your not
into memoirs than the next must read is The Realm of Possibilities by
is your favorite genre and why?
like a bit of every genre but if I had to chose a favorite it would
be fantasy followed closely by YA/NA contemporary.
book are you reading right now?
of right now I’m rereading Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List by David
Levithan and Rachel Cohn.
book are you most looking forward to reading this summer?
Summer of Chasing Mermaids Sarah Ockler. I adore Sarah's books!!!
you were stranded on a deserted island, what author would you want to
bring with you? Why?
question I’m really tempted to say J.K Rowling just so i can pick her brain about all things Harry potter but my pick would be Maureen Johnson because based of her twitter she seems like a fun
*Apparently we were only supposed to pick/answer 5 questions...I was so excited that i skimmed the instructions. Oh well enjoy my Armchair BEA intro.
