Once again, Armchair BEA is upon us. As we did last year, the even kicks off with introductions of those participating. It's a way to get to know each other better as well! We were told to choose 5 questions to answer. These are the questions I choose:
1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Hello everyone! My name is Shelley and I'm a bookaholic! June of this year will mark my 2 year anniversary since my blog was created. I actually got into blogging at the suggestion of some friends on Goodreads who had been following my reviews. I've been posting reviews on GR since 2009. My favorite genre's are Urban Fantasy, PNR, Steampunk, Post-Apocalyptic, Mystery, and Thrillers. I do, in fact, enjoy YA as well, and have been reading a steady diet of YA since the start of this year.
2. Where in the world are you blogging from? Tell a random fact or something special about your current location:
I currently reside in Jacksonville, Florida where I've lived for the past 13 years. I would say that Jacksonville's claim to fame is that it has an NFL team called the Jacksonville Jaguars and once hosted the Super Bowl between Philadelphia and New England. It's also one of the biggest land mass county/cities in the nation. Jacksonville is home to the Navy at Mayport.
3. Have you previously participated in Armchair BEA? What brought you back for another year? If you have not participated, what drew you to the event?
I actually participated last year and found it highly entertaining as well as informative. There were a lot of wonderful bloggers involved and the organizers really seem to have their acts together.
4. What is your favorite part about the blogging community?
I think we will all agree that bloggers are a tenacious group by nature. We love our books, we love certain authors without hesitation or reservation, and we scream like little kids when a new book comes out from one of our favorite authors. But, above all, I've found MOST bloggers approachable, and respectable of new bloggers trying hard to make it this business. If I have a question to ask, they will without hesitation or reservation help me regardless of the number of followers they have, or how long they've been blogging.
5. What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2013?
As I am posting this introduction, I will have stared The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau as well as Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris. I'll answer the second part as well. My favorite books of 2013 have been Binding the Shadow by Jenn Bennett as well as Written in Red by Anne Bishop.
