Saturday Spotlight - The Book Scout

Welcome welcome one and all! I really love weekends. First off, I get to sleep in, second of all .. I get to sleep in.. and well that covers up until number 9 and then 10th of all.. haha, no just kidding. I love weekends because I have blog time AND I get to share about new bloggers that are awesome. This girl is pretty amazing that you're going to hear about in just a moment. Her blog has really grown since she started it and is looking cool as ever.

Without further ado...

Name: Kelsey
Nickname and/or blog name: The Book Scout
Blog URL:

Tell me a bit about yourself.
I'm going to be a freshman starting this fall. I love reading, listening to music, going to the movies, running, playing with my dog, among other things! I'm going to be 15 in September and hopefully I'll get a lot of books! (:

When and why did you start your blog?
I started this blog in July. I love reading and always feel like I want to tell everyone about the books I read, my friends like reading too, but it's not the same as having a whole blog just to spill out your feelings about a great book!

What is your blog all about? Any cool features you want to share?
My blogs mostly young adult/teen book reviews, I have some special daily posts, like "Friday Finds" where I write about cool books I've found during the week that I want to read.

Do you have a review system? If you do, would you like to explain it for us?
I don't really have a system. I right an honest review, highlighting the best points of the book and then give it x/5 stars.

Any tips or advice for those starting or thinking about starting a blog?

Well, try to get the word out about it, and then just start posting reviews, features, etc. I'm still getting started myself, so I don't really have a lot of advice.

What are some of your favorite genres and/or books currently?
I love realistic fiction, historical fiction, and fantasy. I'll read pretty much anything though. It's hard to say what my favorite book is, it changes so often, but right now I'd have to say The Luxe by Anna Godbersen. I recently read it and really enjoyed it. I can't wait to read the rest of the series. This will probably change by next week though. (:

Thank you to the awesome girl that is The Book Scout. I just love her blog more and more as it evolves.
