BBAW Interview Swap!

It's Book Blogger Appreciation Week! To celebrate, I'm taking part in the book blogger interview swap. My partner is Tasha from Truth, Beauty, Freedom and Books. I'm not gonna waste any time, so here we go!

1) Tell me about yourself! Are you married? Have kids? Pets? I do have a pet, a dog named Pearl you can see on Schnauzer Saturdays. Other than that, I'm a woman of mystery. Ha! Not really. I live in Colorado, I teach classes online but am constantly searching for another job, and I like spending time outdoors. Reading.

2) When did you start book blogging? It was so long ago I don't remember. Fortunately, my blog tells me it was 2009. Good times.

3) What are your preferred genres for reading? I'm pretty eclectic; it would be easier to say what genres I don't like to read. I've been on something of a YA and m/m romance kick lately, which now that I think about it are two really odd genres to pair together. I also like romances, mysteries, sci-fi, fantansy, suspense, manga, non-fiction, anything with vampires or angels, historical fiction, classics... just about anything other than chick lit. Chick lit depresses me.

4) Tell me something about yourself no one else knows. I would, but then I'd have to erase your hard drive. Haha! Okay, the bodies are buried... wait. Never mind.

5) What are some of your favorite book blogs to follow? Well, there's a lot, to say the least. The ever-popular Hot Guys Reading Books, Forgotten Bookmarks, Reasoning with Vampires (it's so mean but so funny), Narrative Casualty, BirdBrain(ed) Book Blog, Stella Matutina, Redeeming Qualities, Bonjour, Cass!, Violet Crush, Booktalk and More, things mean a lot, A Buckeye Girl Reads, One Literature Nut, and I recently started following Kris n Good Books, picky girl; Forever Young Adult is always entertaining, Promantica, Walkabout, books i done read, Wordsmithonia, and I'm tired of typing so I'm going to stop there. 

Thanks for answering those questions, Tasha! If you want to learn more about me, I'm being interview on Tasha's blog! Hop on over there to check out more. Enjoy the rest of the week!


  1. Lovely interview Ariel & Tasha :) And I love that's you're an eclectic reader. I never know what book I will discover when I visit (which is part of the appeal :) and I always discover so many interesting books! And thank you for the shout out :)

  2. Love your pic Tasha. I didn't know you taught online classes. Great interview. Love your blog header Ariel...

  3. Thank you for the interview, Ariel!

    Orannia~Of course! I would never forget about you. :)

    Violet~Thank you. :) I only just started teaching online this summer. It's kind of fun, actually.

  4. Love the interview! I knew Tasha lived in Colorado, but I couldn't remember what she did. Sounds like it could be lots of fun or a big headache (maybe a little of both).

    Thanks for the shout out. I'm just glad you didn't decided your fingers were tired any sooner :-)

  5. Tasha needs to find an m/m YA romance, stat! Wish I could recommend one, but my mind has gone blank.

  6. Ryan~It was the last listed but the first in my heart. :)

    Mem~IKR? There has to be at least one out there.


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read every comment on my blog and respond personally to each one. Feel free to share your blog link as well so I can comment and follow back! Have a great week!
