Blogger Interview

Today Donna from http://litbites.blogspot.com/ is in for a chat. This is what she had to say!

1. How long have you been blogging? Has it become an obsession?
My book blog, since the end of January, this year and my writing blog over a year now. I'd have to check the actual date it went up to be sure. I'm thinking a year and a half. An obsession? No. A compulsion? Yes. Once I get into a routine with something, it's very hard for me to get out and I'm in posting routines with both of my blogs.

2. What are some blogs that inspire you?
The Story Siren because of how far she's come in so little time. Reviewer X for her sheer honesty. Steph Su just because she is who she is and her blog is just all round good.

3. Favorite book of all time?
Right now that would have to be The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien.

4. Favorite feature on your blog?
Aside from the reviews? I like my Freaky Fridays. Older YA horror books need love too. They knew what horror was then.

5.Favorite review you've written?
This involves memory that I just don't have! I'd have to say my Alphas review or any of my Twilight series reviews. Honesty is my best policy.

6. How do you rate books?
Bites. Five bites is as good as you can get. Three bites ok, not good, not bad but not really memorable and one bite or lower is don't bother wasting the gas to go to the library (or energy if you're within walking distance). The reader can fill in the blanks for the rest. I don't like ratings that are so specifically set in stone.

7. What is unique about your blog?
Honesty. There are very few bloggers that are willing to be as honest as I am in a less than stellar review (Reviewer X comes to mind). And I really do my own thing. I don't like doing things that everyone else is doing because then all the blogs blend together and where's the fun in that? I try to stick to some base similarities, like reviews, obviously, but other than that, I try to stick to my own game. Easier said than done but I try.

8. favorite childhood book?
Goosebumps.

Thanks for coming Donna.
