Tell me a bit about yourself.
I'm sixteen. I go to a private school. I spend my boring hours there trying to cram in as many fiction books as possible.

When and why did you start your blog?
I started it in October. The reason was because I had been reading so many books that I was bursting to tell everyone about. Not many of my friends enjoyed reading, and I had just discovered book blogs. I felt like I could keep up with a blog, and it would be fun to analyze my favorite (and not so favorite) reads a little bit more.

What is your blog all about? Any cool features you want to share?
Books and reading. I don't have anything too spectacular and original there, yet. But I do try to write reviews more on my opinions if the book is popular, and more informative reviews if they might be unknown books. I feel like everyone knows what Wings is about by now, so I try to vary what they are reading.

What are some of your favorite genres and/or books currently?
I love fairy tales, fantasy/adventure, and dystopian books. Currently, I'm really digging Kristin Cashore, Tanith Lee's Black Unicorn series, and rereading Tamora Pierce. I guess I'm just in a kick-butt heroine phase.

How do you find out about the books you read?
My friends who do read give me suggestions. My brother always has amazing 'boy' books to share with me, and I try to help him find amazing ones as well. (You're welcome for the Hunger Games!) If those fail, book blogs and author lists never hurt.

Any tips or advice for those starting or thinking about starting a blog?
Just do it -Nike.

Thank you Amelia for sharing more about yourself and your blog with us. Please take a gander at her blog and leave her some comment love.
