Saturday Spotlight - Booking Through 365

Today I will introduce you to a blogger who well, was the reason I started blogging. Emma and I were in a group together on goodreads when she posted her cool blog. I just had to have a book blog! Who knew there was such a cool book blog world out there!

Then, we became even closer when I conned her into being my book buddy for the 1st Bloggiesta. And now we chat all the time and share tips. She can be a slacker sometime, so go check out her blog below and let her know how much she needs to keep up her blogging!

Name: Emma
Nickname and/or blog name: Booking Through 365

Tell me a bit about yourself.
I'm a teen whose always loved reading. My favorite novels from childhood were Judy Blume, Junie B Jones and Trixie Belden.

When and why did you start your blog?
I started my blog in June, after numerous attempts to mantain a blog. I decided that since I love books so much I should do a book blog and well, the rest is history.

What is your blog all about? Any cool features you want to share?
I don't have any features at the moment, but I'm going to start one where my followers ask unusual questions to specific authors, then I pick the two oddest ones and have an author interview!

What are some of your favorite genres and/or books currently?
I ADORE YA fiction. I love coming of age stories, and I think all of us can relate to that time period.

My favorite series is most definitely the Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray. The world Bray creates is cruel and beautiful. The first book is called A Great and Terrible Beauty. I'm also a big fan of John Green. The man is hilarious and he creates complex characters effortlessly. I'd recommend Looking for Alaska for new Green readers.

How do you find out about the books you read?
The blog world has been so kind to add a few books to my To Be Read pile. It's the perfect way to find reading worry books!

Any tips or advice for those starting or thinking about starting a blog?
Find a blogging buddy, first thing. They can help with technical difficulties, reviews and general posts, and not to mention that they provide a healthy dose of competition. My blog would be dead if it wasn't for Kristen. Get involve in the blogging community, and you'll go far.

Thanks so much for having me, Kristen!

Don't you just love Emma? She's my ol' blogging buddy so check out her blog and leave her some love!

I read the post carefully and I think you and some of your readers may like my new book, a coming of age story set in coastal Texas, with a teenage girl as main character and two or three levels on which it can be read.
