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", soaking up everything they can read. Today's guest is fairly new to blogging, and this interview I hope will encourage her and show others how much bloggers are appreciated by us authors.

Name, (name that you blog under) Mariah

Blog spot name, A Reader’s Adventure

Blog address:

How long have you been blogging?

I have been blogging for about 2 months

What books do you read?

Mostly YA books but sometimes Middle Grade books as well

What is your favorite book and author of 2009?

So far I would say Eyes like Stars by Lisa Mantchev probably because I just read it and I loved it.

What is your favorite author/book of all time?

Beauty by Robin Mckinley

About 200 (I use the library and buy the ones I really like)

How many books do you read a week?

About 7

Not counting yours, what is your favorite blog to follow?

The Story Siren

When is your favorite time/location to read?

Late at night when I should be asleep Location- in my bed

If you could be a character in any book who would that be and why?

Right now probably either Katsa from Graceling or Katniss from The Hunger Games because I really like both of those books but it would be really scary and I don’t think I would be as brave!

Have you ever thought about or actually written a book yourself?

I am attempting to write a book right now.

If you had a chance to advertise your blog in any way you could, what would you chose and why?

Having a bookstore support/advertise me because I love bookstores and what better way to connect with readers?

If you had a chance to interview any one author who would that be and why?

A really famous author like Judy Blume

If you had a chance what period of history would you live in

Probably the Elizabethan Era because I am fascinated with it even though it is not as great as it sometimes sounds what with no indoor plumbing!

What is one thing about you that readers might not know?

I am very shy and quiet in real life!

What would you like to change about you if you could?

I wish I was less introverted but it gives me more time to read!

Yes, and they are adorable

  1. Welcome to the blogosphere, Mariah! Here's wishing you the best of luck in your endeavors. You have no idea the service you do not only for readers but for those of us who make it our mission to bring the written word to them. Your efforts are much appreciated.

  2. Welcome to the blogospher!!! I'm a new blogger too lol. Great interview, I love getting to know fellow book bloggers better.

  3. Watch out. Blogging can be addictive, especially if you follow other posts and comment. It may reduce your 7 books a week read to less.
