BEA is definitely an event I won’t be attending anytime soon unfortunately, although NYC is an absolute dream of mine; since I am from Australia I am participating in the next best thing, Armchair BEA.
This year's theme is all about community, and the main goal is to encourage visiting and getting to know the vast number of bloggers/participants.
Armchair BEA kicks-off with introductions!!
So without further ado, my answers to a few of the questions.
(A full list can be found HERE)
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
My name is Sharon; I am from Sydney Australia and a full-time mum to 2 gorgeous children. I absolutely LOVE to read and I have been blogging since March 2011.
What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012?
I am currently reading Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins! Finding the time over the past few days to fit in reading has been a tad frustrating especially since this is a book I am really really enjoying.
If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
Easy peasy! It would definitely be my all time favorite author Karen Marie Moning, never before have I been so obsessed with a series than what I was with her Fever series – I loved it and am so anxious to read more.
Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?
When I first started blogging it was all Adult Paranormal/Urban Fantasy and Contemporary or Romantic Suspense, but since starting on Young Adult novels, I am completely converted (unless it is a series or author I absolutely love).
What is your favorite feature on your blog (i.e. author interviews, memes, something specific to your blog)?
I contribute the number of followers I have today from participating in weekly memes, specifically Parajunkee/Alison Can Read, Feature & Follow Friday as well as Waiting on Wednesday hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Interviewing authors is also fun! I recently got to interview the amazingly awesome Julie Kagawa and her answers were wonderful.
Thank-you for stopping by!!
