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: Shannon
Name of Blog: Books Devoured
Blog Url: http://www.booksdevoured.com/
Country you live in: US
How long have you been blogging? Almost 4 Months
Are you mainly a book review blog or do you feature/review other things? I think of Books Devoured as a Book Blog. I post my views on what I read and other fun book related information.
What genres do you read/review? I am pretty eclectic. I am all about a great story no matter the genre. I am new to YA and I am really enjoying a lot of what is out there for teens. I do really love UF and some SciFi, but also Mystery and Thrillers. I am taking the Chicklit challenge this year hosted by ChickLit Plus which will be entirely new to me, I have never read anything in that genre!
What age group books do you prefer (middle grade, young adult, adult)? All of them!
Why? Three months ago (right before I started blogging) I would have said Adult, for sure! Since I started blogging and reading so many other blogs, you guys convinced me to try young adult and I am so glad that you did!
What’s something unique about your blog? I decided to not post "Reviews" I call them "My View" instead. I know it is just word play but it allows me to feel like I can be more honest and write my thought in a more engaging and fun way. I have a great post about the reasons for this, you can check that out HERE.
I also really try to feature many different genres of books. I tend to get bored reading the same types over and over without a break. I have figured out that I enjoy books more when I mix it up.
Who/what are your favorite...
Books? If I MUST choose just 1 it would be The Stand by Stephen King.
Series? The Hollows series by Kim Harrison (at least Today that is my favorite, there are so many greats!)
Authors? Stephen King is great of course. I could not narrow down my other favorites, there are too many!
Literary characters? I love all the characters in The Stand, the good guys anyway!
Literary couples? Cat and Bones from the Night Huntress series comes to mind, I am sure there are more!
Villains? I love to hate Belatrix LeStrange, It might be the movies that helps that.
Supernatural beings? I loved all the Fey characters in the Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa
I have an addiction. I can not stop buying books. I know that a lot of you share my addiction! I have little to no self control. I have an insane amount of books to be read that I own and yet I can not resist that shiny new awesome book I have been drooling over online for months. My husband is wonderful and indulges me. He now calls the mail man my dealer. He has remarked more than once that he is so glad I chose books to be addicted to and not something else. He has always told me that I don't read books, I devour them. When it came time to choose a blog name, that came to mind pretty quickly and I knew it was the right name!
Thanks so much for having me! This was a lot of fun!
