Today I have with me an awesome older blogger whose blog I adore. She's fun and loves reading and you should get to know her more!
Name: The Book Vixen
Nickname and/or blog name: The Book Vixen
Blog URL: http://www.thebookvixen.com/
Tell me a bit about yourself.
I'm a 30-year old wife and mom. I work full-time so I don't get in as much reading time as I'd like but I read at every opportunity I get. I'm addicted to chocolate. Seriously, if I don't get my daily dose, watch out!
When and why did you start your blog?
I started my blog in August 2009. I didn't realize that there was a book blogging community until last year. Some of my friends read but they either don't read the genres I read or they read so freaking slow! One friend of mine takes a month to read a single book
What is your blog all about? Any cool features you want to share?
My blog is about books that interest me. I do book reviews, post book trailers (and movie trailers for book-to-movie adaptations). I participate in a couple of memes: Teaser Tuesdays and On My Wishlist. And I host giveaways from time to time.
I don't have any features of my own yet. I do have a idea for a feature brewing about in my head. It's great in theory, I just need to put into action. And this particular feature will strive only if I commit to it and I have commitment issues :/ I want to make sure I can keep up with it before I launch it.
What are some of your favorite genres and/or books currently?
I mainly read young adult and romance (contemporary and paranormal). I am a major YA junkie! I may be 30 but I'm 17 at heart ;)
I have been known to dabble in mystery, suspense and true crime from time to time. Very rarely, and I mean VERY RARELY, I'll read non-fiction but for the most part I stay away from it.
How do you find out about the books you read?
I mostly find books that I want to read on book blogs, either from reviews, WoW, On My Wishlist or new release posts.
Any tips or advice for those starting or thinking about starting a blog?
Post. Comment. Tweet. You have to be on Twitter. Lots of good book talk goes on on Twitter!
