Interview with Jenni - falling off the shelf blogspot
As anybody who has read me reviews interviews or heard my comments on either my own radio program or where I have been a guest, you will know I am a great believer in what I call the "Small Blogger". These are the people who read, write and live books are "The 'sham wow' of Teen/YA literature".
Blogname: Falling Off The Shelf
Blog Address: http://fallingofftheshelf.blogspot.com
How long have you been blogging?
Going on 2 months now, I’m fairly new to the blogging community.
What books do you read?
I’m a huge fan of paranomal books, but I also enjoy reading young adult, romance, mystery, chick lit, and horror.
What is your favorite book and author of 2009?
Wow this is a hard one, I’ve read so many great books this year. I’d honestly have to say Moon Called by Patricia Briggs. I’m loving her Mercy Thompson Series.
What is your favorite author/book of all time?
The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks, by far, it was the first romance I ever read and I’ll never forget how it made me feel. (Plus I cried my eyes out!)
How many books do you have in your library?
Wow, uh, around 600? No, I’m not kidding either, my fiance thinks I’m crazy.
How many books do you read a week?
Well, I do work a full time job, so sometimes 1 and sometimes 3, it all depends.
Not counting yours, what is your favorite blog to follow?
I honestly don’t have a favorite, but I do frequently visit Wendy’s Minding Spot, Chick With Books, So Many Books So Little Time, and Smexy Books.
When is your favorite time/location to read?
In my room early in the morning. It’s so quiet in the house, and my fiance isn’t home to bug me. I usually will just sit and read, and before I know it I’ve read through whole books.
If you could be a character in any book who would that be and why?
I’d honestly want to be a vampire, a spunky vampire (not an evil killing machine). I love reading about vamps, and I work overnight so sometimes I feel like a vampire because of my sleep habits.
Have you ever thought about or actually written a book yourself?
I’ve thought about it, but I can never seem to get it into words. I should really try before just giving up.
If you had a chance to advertise your blog in any way you could, what would you chose and why?
Oh, I’d have one of those message planes fly around my town. Haha, only because that would be completely ridiculous, but it would probably generate a lot of new readers.
If you had a chance to interview any one author who would that be and why?
I’d have to say Jeanine Frost. She seems like a really sweet person, and I absolutely love her writing. I buy her books religiously as soon as they hit the shelves.
What is one thing about you that readers might not know?
I absolutely hate picking up a new book. I know, it sounds odd, but each book to me is like a project until I actually start reading it. Once I get into the first couple of pages, it’s no longer a project, but something I want to do and can’t help but finish.
What would you like to change about you if you could?
I would say my job, but that’s not really me, that’s something I do. I would have to say I’d change my personal appearance, nothing major, a tuck here maybe a tan, lol.
Have you ever heard of a “Tree Kangaroo?”
No I have not, sounds cute though. I love animals.
If people are interested in being a guest on your blog or sending a book to you and your blog what is the best way to contact you?
Emailing me. I check my email EVERY day, and never leave a message unanswered. I’m always looking to communicate with other bloggers, so guest posts are wonderful. As for sending me a book, I love to read all sorts of things, just send a short description of your book.
Thank you for having me here! This was the first time anyone wanted to interview ME, and it was fun.
Thank you for being my guest Jenni and sharing your blog with the readers.
Author of Young Adult Romance/Fiction book
