I love bookish events that spreads positivity! So when I stumbled upon the Love-A-Thon I knew I had to join in. Plus there will be the chance for all of us to get to commenting, following, tweeting, expressing gratitude and admiration, and so much more. Plus, there will be mini-challenges, two Twitter chats and a bunch of amazing giveaways! This is hosted over at Alexa Loves Books so be sure to go over there and sign up.
If this is your first time visiting I am so glad you are here. If you have followed me for a while, welcome back. I always like visitors and try to always visit back. You never know if you will find a book geek like yourself!
So first up for the event is the Questionnaire so here we go:
What's your name? Angie... or Angela... hence the name "Angela's Anxious Life"
Where in the world are you blogging from?? Colorado... where we are supposed to be getting a ton of snow today but there has been nothing so far.
How did you get into blogging in the first place? Well for me it all started way back when I was first running a couple groups on Goodreads and would google possible discussion questions. I kept coming across book blogs and thought... I want to do one of those! Then I kind of started with a personal blog and that lasted all of 5 posts. Then I started book blogging and had so much fun that I have never stopped.
How did you come up with your blog name? I guess I answered that above sort of. Since it was starting out as a personal blog the name I chose was Angela's Anxious Life. But then I switched to a book blog but decided to continue with the name because it really does explain my life and who I am.
What genre do you read and review the most on your blog. I review a lot of young adult books. But I review and read a huge variety. For example right now I am reading Yes Please by Amy Poehler. I am really enjoying it. I also review video games and movies on the blog so don't be surprised to see a little of everything. I try to write the reviews so that everyone reading it would enjoy it and feel that they could join in the conversation about it.
What other posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews? Apart from reviews??? Wow... so I do this feature called Project Disney though I am almost done with it. It's where I go and watch a Disney Canon Movie and read the corresponding book that the film was based off of and compare them. It's so sad I think I only have like 3 movies left. Some of you may know I run two book clubs on Goodreads. One is the Young Adult Book Club and the other is the Stephen King Fans group and so I sometimes post about those groups here on the blog as well.
Best Blogging Experience so Far?? Hummm.. well since blogging I have met some new online friends. I did try to meet some bloggers in real life but that didn't turn out so fun. I have enjoyed learning a lot of html and computer programing. I do feel that my writing has become so much better from when I first started blogging. I have interacted with authors online and even received a few ARCs.
Favorite Things About the Blogging Community? For me it's events like these. I like to sit down and write out some personal things compared the the normal books reviews I do. I believe events like this one allows people to get to know who is behind the blog. I like learning about books I may not have known about if it weren't for other bloggers.
Name 5 books that I am most excited about for 2015? Oh wow.. is it sad that this year I am most excited about reading books that I already own?? I have so many sitting here that just need to be read so I haven't been borrowing a lot from the library like I normally do. So... I am most excited about getting my owned books read!
What's an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read?
Oh the pressure! Have to go and look at my goodreads read books list. Personally I think Stephen King's books are underrated. You may scream at me.. why would you say that? Too many people who have never read King believe his books are just horror and fluff. King writes amazing books... they are not just horror. They are a huge story usually inspecting human nature. The Dark Tower series is also books that King fans skip and they are missing so much.
Which book boy or girl would be your BFF? Well.. Stephanie Plum of course from the Janet Evanovich series. Love her and she seems so fun.
Apart From Reading, What are Your Other Hobbies or Interests? Wow .. I have so many! Movies, NASCAR, TV, football Denver Broncos, make-up, clothes, cats, musicals, theater, symphony, concerts, I love a huge variety of things. It is why I think I would be a good friend to people.
Apart from book shopping, what else do you shop for? I pin so much on Pinterest of things I want to buy. I shop a lot for make-up and recently trying to find a pair of UGGs on sale which is impossible. I love to shop for things around the house too.
At a party, the DJ suddenly changes the song, and it's your song! What song would be playing? I love music. I love it so much. I have so many songs too. But I love the song Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac.
Pick out a book you want turned into a TV show/Movie or a TV/Movie that you want turned into a book. There are so many that I would love to see... I would really love the RA Salvatore Drizzt series turned into a show or movie. It is based off the world of Dungeons and Dragons and I think it would be just so amazing to see on the screen.
Well that's it for the questionnaire... I hope it allowed you to get to know me a little better.
And since I'm behind I'll add my Book Spine Poetry Challenge to this post as well.
The Historian is Missing... BLOOD! Said the Cat.... The Gunslinger only found Shadow and Bone.
