This year I am happy to be paired with Misty, from Hawaii Book Blog. Hawaii Book Blog is somewhat different from a "traditional" book reviewing site - they feature books, articles, and literary events specific to Hawaii. You can read their Mission Statement, but here is the short version:
"The main purpose of this blog is to provide people with a comprehensive platform to learn and discuss books about Hawaiʻi and the Pacific, books by local authors, or books published by local companies."
Cool, right? I wonder if anyone has a blog like this for the Midwest - it's a great idea.
Anyway, meet Misty - she's a cool girl, and also the older sibling in a set of boy/girl fraternal twins. This is especially interesting to ME, because that's what I have at home, and I feel like I should also be interviewing her mom to get tips on how to keep two babies alive into adulthood! =)
(Edit - I've since learned that I misunderstood - she is the older sister TO a set of boy/girl fraternal twins. I suppose that would be slightly different....*grin*)
On to the interview ---
1 - What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I really enjoy the sense of community in book blogging--meeting new people and discovering new authors. It's exciting to find a new book or series to obsess about or lose sleep over. The best way to do that is to follow and support book bloggers! I'll spend hours going from blog to blog, reading reviews and comments - and of course my "to-read" list gets longer and longer!
2 - If you could put any two fictional characters in a room together, who would they be?
4 - What one book can you remember reading as a child that helped you to fall in love with reading?
5 - What book or books have you read that everyone else just LOVED, but you couldn't stand?
Thanks for hanging out with Misty and I today - be sure to visit Hawaii Book Blog to see my end of the interview. And then visit the BBAW main page to read LOTS more fun interviews!
