Armchair BEA 2015: Introductions

Book bloggers unable to attend the BEA Bloggers Conference or Book Expo America (BEA) in New York City, but would like to ‘meet’ other book bloggers and publishers to discuss books and book blogging can participate in this virtual event.

Tell us a bit about yourself: How long have you been blogging? Where are you from? How did you get into blogging?

Hi there! *waves* Myrtle here aka Ayanami Faerudo from the Philippines. I have been blogging for close to five years now. It has been a blast and I'm still enjoying it. Of course, there have been times when I was at a loss on whether I want to continue this or not but all I had to remember was the wonderful people I've met, albeit virtually, the books and authors I have discovered that I would have never known if I wasn't blogging, relevant issues other than books (this is also in tandem with Tumblr) and generally having fun.

What is your theme song?

I don't have a theme song. I don't have a fixed favorite song because it all depends on my mood. But there is one song that has been sort of love/angst/reflection song since ever and that is Scarlet by Iwao Junko.

What is one book everyone should read?

Oh no! I could never narrow it down to just one! There are many books that I love in different genres that, honestly, the list would be a foot long at least. And yes, Harry Potter is on that list, as well as The Lord of the Rings. So I am going to name the latest book I've read and loved and that is A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas.

Share your favorite blog post on your blog. (aka written by you!)

I have better posts than this but this one post is the one I have been always fond of: 


I am very proud of this post. This is when I realized that shit! I am a legit book blogger!


What book are you reading right now?

I have been reading Dragon Age Inquisition fanfiction for the past week (and a half) already. I can't help it! I want my fill of fluffy, giddy Commander Cullen Stanton Rutherford stories! 

Ahem.

But I'm taking a break from that for a moment and going to read The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin.

  3. Without blogging and twitter I would never have discovered most of the books I have read and enjoyed over the past five years. Is A Court of Thorns and Roses part of Sarah J. Maas' series, or is it a stand-alone?

  5. Despite blogging sometimes being a bit stressful, it is so worth it when you get all the love back from other bloggers! 'The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms' looks amazing, that is one stunning cover. I am also determined to start Sarah J. Maas' book soon! I'm an old follower so I'll make sure to drop by again this week! I'm loving all the ABEA fun :D Thanks for sharing!

  6. I am finally reading Throne of Glass this summer. I was hoping to wait it out for a few books to be released before reading the new series for A Court of Thorn and Roses, but I may have to cave. I am hearing such amazing things about it.
    I look forward to getting to know you throughout the week.

    1. Oh god! I also caved! I didn't have much love for the Throne of Glass but I've heard a lot of good things for ACOTAR that I caved! The cover also enticed me with it's siren song. IT'S RED!

  7. I couldn't pick just one book to recommend either. And my recommendations would always include Harry Potter!

    Happy ABEA!
