Armchair BEA: Day 1, Introduction
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
Hi, I’m Jessica, and I am a blogging noob. I only joined Rabid Reads in February (yes, of this year), but I like to think I’m taking to it fairly well—I love it anyway. *winks* I got into blogging b/c books—I love ’em. I love reading them, I love thinking about them, I love talking about them with other people, and blogging is an excellent medium for all of that. I am blogging from the deep South—Chattanooga, TN.
What genre do you read the most? I love to read because ___________________ .
Urban Fantasy. I use reading primarily as an escape, and I was raised on fairy tales. I like to read regular, contemporary books too, but the further from reality you can get, the better IMO, and vampires, werewolves, fae, etc. accomplish that much better than books without paranormal elements.
What was your favorite book read last year? What’s your favorite book so far this year?
Last year either Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, or Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Mass. This year is definitely Red Rising by Pierce Brown.
What does your favorite/ideal reading space look like?
What book would you love to see as a movie?
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, b/c how awesome would that be? Can you even begin to imagine what Brimstone or Akiva would look like on the big screen? This needs to happen.
