Today marks the first day of Armchair BEA! It's that time of year again where we sit at home in our pajamas and pine about not being at BEA for one reason or another. However, this should be another fun year, and I'm really looking forward to all the posts this week! Today is the introductions days, where we pick five questions from the original list of ten and essentially interview ourselves. Sooo... here we go!
My name is Ariel and I'm a 21-year-old college student who is attending Chemeketa Community College in Dallas, Oregon with plans to become a librarian someday. I have loved reading all my life and even taught myself to read at a very young age. This blog has only been running for about a year and a half, but I've been blogging on my personal blog for about seven years now. I love writing! As far as why I got into book blogging, it has opened my eyes to new genres and books that I never would have considered without bloggers' advice. And I've met so many excellent people! I just love the community we have.
2. Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
I have a split personality :P People will talk about me as if I'm this happy, bubbly person, which I definitely am! I'm love people and am often happy. But if I'm around people I don't know, I'm actually quite shy. I'm super out-going around my close friends :P
3. What is your favorite feature on your blog?
I don't know if this really counts as a feature, but I like that I review such a wide range of genres. While I have been posting Christian review more recently, I still consider fantasy my favorite genre, and now I also love contemporary novels. I think it's a good balance for all of my readers.
4. If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
Jackson Pearce. No contest. She has an amazing writing style, and she's hilarious! Our conversations would be awesome.
5. Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?
As I mentioned above, I read contemporary now, and didn't before. And I read a wider range of fantasy than before. I'm still not a huge fan of paranormal fantasies, but my opinion on them is changing haha. High fantasy all the way!
