Armchair BEA- Into & Literature
Monday, May 26, 2014
Yeah! It's that time.. time for Armchair BEA. I have always wanted to go to this event. Being though that it is in NY well... I just can't make it. So I am always glad to see that there is an event for those of us bloggers who want to participate.
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?
Hello everyone!! My name is Angie and I have been blogging since 2010. No I can't believe it either. Time is flying. I am finally getting a new look on my blog next month too for the first time in 4 years (so be on the look out). I originally started blogging to see what it would be like and then I loved reading reviews and meeting new people. I love learning new things and feeling accomplished every time I do something new on the blog.
Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online.
Books... Movies.... Comics... Video Games
Come and find me!!!
What does your favorite/ideal reading space look like? (Pinterest encouraged!)
I am not sure what the Pinterest part means? Make a board about it?? Well how about I just show you! My cozy chair.
Spread the love by naming your favorite blogs/bloggers (doesn’t necessarily have to be book blogs/bloggers).
I love to do this!!! First up I love Bookish Whimsy. She does the most fantastic posts called the Refined Reader that looks at the journey people have taken to become the readers we are today.
Next up is the Daily Prophecy. I really enjoy reading Mel's blog. She is pretty interactive with her readers. Plus she covers a lot of fairy tale news!!
And finally today I will mention Oh the Books. This blog is run by a fun set of girls. I love to read their posts.. they make me feel like they are my friends!
What do you think of when you think of literature? Classics, contemporary, genre, or something else entirely? We are leaving this one up to you to come up with and share the literature that you want to chat about the most. Feel free to share a list of your favorites, break down your favorite genre, feature your favorite authors, and be creative about all things literature in general.
What do I think of when I think of literature? The point of this question is to talk about the literature that you love. Well... for me my favorites are kind of all over the board. If you follow my blog you probably have noticed. I really pretty much can read anything but Non-Fiction. I love Comics to Stephen King to Young Adult. I really didn't mean to jump into the Young Adult genre. In 2007 I was on goodreads when it was kind of new and someone asked me to help moderate a Young Adult Book Club. At the time it was pretty much the only one on goodreads and then BOOM now there are so many of them. I ended up reading along each month because that is what I thought a good moderator should do and I really liked the books.
I find that I don't make as much time now though for adult novels. Which I need to do more of. I do think too that Comics are wonderful. It just appeals to the geek in me. I not only love Superhero comics but all types of Graphic Novels. I have even thought about doing a feature on the blog where I read a comic with another blogger who would be interested in reading one with me and I could help them pick their first one. I just haven't really implemented the idea yet. Not sure if people would be interested in this or not.
What about you?? I am excited to see what other people want to say about literature.
