Hi and welcome to my little corner in the blog world. While I can’t be at BEA in New York this year and I am trying so very hard not to be overly jealous of those that can; I am very excited to be part of the Armchair BEA again this year! Last year was so very much fun :)
So who am I and why do I blog?
Howdy, cause my Granny taught me to be polite even in virtual worlds, and welcome to Geeky Bloggers Book Blog!
Yes, I am that Texas Gal that says things like y’all, fixin’, and howdy. Mostly, I am just your average 39yr old single gal that loves books, crochet, movies/tv, walking, and wine! Secret: I am really looking forward to turning 40 at the end of the year! Strange but true fact, I think with age comes wisdom and each year teaches us something. My favorite book genres to read are: Romance (All Types though paranormal and historical are my favorites), Mysteries/Thrillers (lean towards the forensic types but if written really well all of them appeal) , and the occasional Non-Fiction (more biographies than anything else). My favorite Movies are the pop-corn type: more action than story and hot men all sweaty. I am not likely to ever get invited to judge an independent film festival but line up a festival full of movies that include: ID4, A-Team, Underworld, Van Helsing, and The Losers and I am so there. On my TV you can find the usual: Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Criminal Minds, In Plain Site, Breakout Kings, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Camelot, Treme, The Borgias, and anything on Investigation Discovery channel. In my non-reading/movie/tv time you can find me playing WOW, hanging with my 110 pound Fur Child Tonks, sticking to my Weight Watchers plan, and hanging with friends and family. I am always up for a great glass of wine and like to try different kinds. My goal is to get a wine refrigerator this year, it will happen.
So why do I book blog? I have had a personal blog for 7 years(it is highly neglected) but decided 3 years ago to start a blog tracking how many books I read in a year. My first ever “review” (termed loosely because in the beginning this blog was just about tracking books so the reviews read something like this: I liked the book, I didn’t like the book) was Candy Girl by Diablo Cody. Really it took a few years to get where I was actually writing reviews that would actually make sense to other people. That being said, this blog actually has grown into something that I couldn’t have planned for if I tried: fun, interactive, and a great way to meet new friends. I think I am most appreciative of the friend aspect overall—gotta love something that brings new friends into your life. This has been one of the most rewarding experiences that I have ever had and hope to blog for many more years to come!
I am excited for this year’s Armchair BEA and is hoping everyone in NY is having a blast!
