When did you start blogging?
I started this blog September 27, 2012  :)  But I have a host of other blogs and websites.  This is my first book blog though.

What is your favorite part of book blogging?
Pretty covers!  No, really – just finding new books to love.

What is your favorite book(s)?
I am a SF junkie – the Takeshi Kovacs series (Altered Carbon, Broken Angels, and Woken Furies) by Richard K. Morgan are all my favorite books.  But I also love me some paranormal romance. 

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
Meeting other cool book loving people.
Clutch - I Am Just Junco by J. A. Huss

Q: What book do you think everyone should read? If you could gift the entire population with one book?

I’d choose The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  I have no idea why, but this book, of all classic literature, is my favorite.  It describes perfection and demise in the same story, it’s so tragic and sad, but at the same time hopeful.  It’s really a brilliant piece of work.  And it’s sorta new adult too, because almost all the players are very young – even though they have so much money and houses and careers, they are still very young.  Except for Gatsby, of course.  He’s the only grown-up in the room, yet he acts so childish.

      I am – everything about this book excites me – I think I’ll make this Sunday’s Retrograde about The Great Gatsby now that I think about it. :)

  1. Jessica@a GREAT read

    Nice! Seeing a lot of classics today! I am starting to think my schools had us reading these too young. I could never see the deeper meaning of these books when I read them. Looking back I can vaguely remember things, but just can’t seem to grasp the meaning behind the words.

    Or something! Losing my train of thought!

    Here’s my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    I started reading this a while back but I never actually finished it. I guess I’m going to have to go through and finish it up because the movie just came out! I’m a new follower through Google Friend Connect. :)
