Meet a Blogger Monday: Midnight Twilight’s Book Blog (3)

Photobucket

There are so many great bloggers & blogs out there. A lot of which don’t seem to be known about real well, or are new and trying to get the word out about them. So how can I help?

I wanted to start Meet a Blogger Monday mainly for the new bloggers, or less well known ones that would like a little love. This way you get to know them a bit and can go check them out for yourself!

Your name: Kayla

Name of Blog: Midnight Twilight's Book Blog

Blog Url: http://midnighttwilightsbookblog.blogspot.com/

Country you live in: United States

How long have you been blogging? Almost three years, but because of some personal things I took almost a year off in the middle. I've been continuously blogging again since September.

Are you mainly a book review blog or do you feature/review other things? I mainly do book reviews, but I've also been known to do author interviews and giveaways, and just recently I've started participating in a couple book related memes.

What genres do you read/review? I mostly read paranormal/fantasy, but I've recently started to really like dystopian, and every once in a while I'll read a contemporary book.

What age group books do you prefer (middle grade, young adult, adult)? Why? I prefer young adult books, but sometimes I'll sneak in a middle grade book or an adult book. I feel like I can relate more to young adult books. I started reading YA books in middle school, and now that I'm in college YA is still my genre.

What’s something unique about your blog? I like to keep my reviews short and sweet. Some bloggers write out long, detailed reviews, which is great in learning about a book, but I don't have the attention span for that. I give a book a rating out of 5, give a short summary about the book, and then give my general opinion on the characters, plot, writing, and anything else I think might be important.

Who/what are your favorite...

Books? Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Series? Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead and Evernight by Claudia Gray

Authors? Laurie Faria Stolarz and Kimberley Griffiths Little

Literary characters? Fang from Maximum Ride and Cammie from Cross my Heart and Hope to Spy

Literary couples? Katniss and Peeta from the Hunger Games and Rose and Dimitri from Vampire Academy

Villains? Cadel from Evil Genius and Damon from the Vampire Diaries

Supernatural beings? I love vampires and all the different myths that different books use about them. I like books about zombies, too, but I don't really like the zombies themselves (they kind of creep me out more than any other paranormal being).

Meet Kayla:

Thank you so much for having me here! I started my blog because I wanted to have a place where I could keep track of all of the books I've read and how I felt about them at the time. But now the book blogging community has grown so much it's amazing to be a part of it and have discussions with other people about books, and get some great recommendations on what I should read next!
