Sunday Spotlight - Wicked Good Books

Welcome one and all to another glorious Sunday Spotlight. I decided to tone down the colors after yesterday! Today we have another fun new blogger who wants you to start checking out her blog.

: Bianca
Blog name: Wicked Good Books
Blog URL:

About me: I always have a horrible time writing about myself, but I'll try my best. I'm a 15 year old sophomore. I am on the cross-country, swim and soccer team. I am involved in theatre (techies rock!) and Broadway is my addiction. I love playing Tetris online. OH and I freakin' love the Red Sox!

When and why did you start your blog?: I started my book blog in early July, but have been blogging for years. I decided that I wanted to have a book blog since I love reading and thought it would be cool to interact with other book lovers.

What is your blog all about? Any cool features you want to share?: Well, I usually read YA books and I'll post my reviews up. I can't think of any cool features to share right now. I hope I'll be able to host interviews, contests and other cool features soon, though!

Do you have a review system? If you do, would you like to explain it for us?:
Characters: x/10pts
Originality: x/10pts
Ending: x/10pts
Writing: x/10pts
Plot: x/10pts
Total score: x/50
I use something like this. And then I'll give you my favorite character and rate the cover and some other little fun things.

Any tips or advice for those starting or thinking about starting a blog?: I say, Just go for it! Don't worry about what others think, just do it for yourself. I have a personal blog and I don't do it for others, I do it for myself.

What are some of your favorite genres and/or books currently?: I love YA, I usually read romance, but lately I've been getting into fantasy!

Contest Alert
Bianca be hosting a contest, starting September 4, where 2 lucky winners will win 8 James Patterson books! So be on the lookout for that this coming weekend.

Thank you Bianca for sparing some time to share a bit about your blog with us today! Please head over and check her blog out, if you haven't yet! Leave the girl some love in comment-form while you're at it ;).

  1. I love her review system--very elaborate:D

  2. And she's on the soccer team as well? Awesome! Am I the only one who sucks too bad at sports to be remotely good for a soccer team?:|

  3. Tetris. :D Cross-country and soccer are amazing- although I suck at swimming so I'm not a huge fan of it. XD

    Great to learn about new bloggers! Going to go see her blog. :)
