An event dedicated to spreading the love for blogs and the bloggers behind them, the Book Blogger Love-A-Thon is a time dedicated to commenting on blogs, following new blogs, tweeting about blogs, thanking blogging inspirations, sharing the word about blogs you follow, telling bloggers how awesome and inspiring they are, and so on and so forth! For more details, visit Katelyn at Tales of Books and Bands or Alexa at Alex Loves Books!
1. How did you come up with your blog name?
I’m a huge fan of Pretty Little Liars, the TV show, and I wanted to showcase that this blog was about books/reading, so I wanted to incorporate those kind of key words into my blog name some how. So, I combined my two loves and bam! Pretty Little Reader was born!
2. What genre/subject matter do you read and review most on your blog?
I’m almost exclusively a Young Adult reader/reviewer, but within that category, I’m open to almost any genre! My favourites would be science fiction, dystopian, paranormal, romance and contemporary. I’m also a huge fan of psychological thrillers and unreliable narrators!
3. Name the 3 books you’re excited for in 2014!
4. Where in the world are you blogging from?
Nova Scotia, Canada.
5. Tell us — how did you get into blogging in the first place?
I stumbled upon Goodreads a few years a go, and it was while reading Lea’s review for Brenna Yovanoff’s The Replacement that I discovered that such a thing as a “book blog” existed. After stalking LC’s Adventure’s in Libraryland for a few months and finding other new blogs that I loved, like Cuddlebuggery, I decided I wanted to join in the fun!
6. Apart from reading, what other hobbies/interests do you have?
I’m a Netflix series binge-watcher, I love shopping and I love going to the movies! Summer is my favourite season; I can almost always be found at the beach on my days off. And I’m a big lover of music, so I spend a lot of time looking for new bands (feel free to shoot me recommendations – I’m pretty open-minded about new genres!)
7. If you were stuck on a deserted island, which books would you bring with you?
Can I cheat and say all of them on a Kindle?
But seriously, I’d bring a couple of good series that I could re-read without growing tired of: Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, The Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Steifvater and Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.
8. If you were stuck in some dangerous situation (like a fire, a sinking ship, a warzone), which book boy or girl would you want to come and save you?
I’m going to cheat again and say the Merrick brothers! (From Brigid Kemmerer’s Elemental series)
Gabriel can put out the fire, Chris can move the water out of my way, Michael can cause an earthquake as a distraction to our enemies and Nick could divert any missiles in the air – a perfect team of hunky saviours
9. You’re attending a party with your friends. Suddenly, the DJ changes the song and it’s YOUR song – what song would that be?
Oh geez, another toughy. I’m going to have to go with Chicks Dig It by Chris Cagle. It reminds me of growing up in a small town and the shenanigans we would get ourselves in to, and at the end of the day, it’s all about living life to the fullest with no regrets!
10. What 3 movies would you love to have your favorite author write into books, or vice versa?
I would love to see The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater written for film – the imagery she used created such vivid visuals in my head of these wild and dangerously beautiful water horses that I’d love to see actually come alive on screen.
I’d also love to see the Under the Never Sky trilogy by Veronica Rossi adapted for film – while I’ve got an idea of what the aether would look like, to see it come to life would be both exhilarating and frightening. But only if Perry, Aria and Roar were cast perfectly; it wouldn’t work any other way!
And lastly, the Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis – so many aspects of this series would be perfect for film and who doesn’t like movies set in space?! But like with the Under the Never Sky trilogy, Amy would have to be cast perfectly. I demand porcelain skin and fiery red hair!
