My Questions from PR Book Reviews.

1. How long have you been reading for?
Honestly I did not start reading until I got in Jr. High. My mom starting working at the library and I would go with her. Before that I would only go to the library at my school and that was to study or get books that I had to read for class. 

2. What was the first book that you fell in love with?
I remember checking out the Princess Diaries from my local library. I absolutely love love love that series!  

3. What are you currently reading?
Connor by Dormaine G.

4.  How many book signings have you been to? 
I went to one last year at the YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) conference in St. Louis, Missouri. It was a weekend long event. I met so many different authors. To name some were David Levithan, Patricia McCormick, C.J. Redwine, and Ilsa J. Bick.

5. Do you prefer e books or paperbacks?
It depends. I have a love/hate relationship with my kindle. Sometimes I forget to charge it and that really sucks when I am for example in class or going out of town. I guess paperbacks would be my pick

6. What's one tip/pointer you would give to a new blogger?
Have fun with it! When i first started I didn't get a lot of followers. I think i might have gotten 5 but I still kept it up. Visit other blogs and get to know other bloggers that are out there to get yours out. BookBlogs is a great website for new bloggers.

7. Why do you blog?
I have a passion for reading. It is something that I can do over and over and never get bored with it. I hope that on my blog I can inspire others to see the beauty of what books can do. I love to visit other blogs and read reviews. That is literally where I get my to read list from. If i never would have went with my mom to work when she became a librarian I would have never became one and the love of reading that I have would not exist. I always say "reading is like a train of indefinite possiblities. It takes you places even if you are reading for 5mins. Those will be the best 5mins of your life." 

8. How long does it take you to read a book?
If I really flat out love it...I will have that baby read in a day. If it was an ok read then maybe 2-3 days. 

9.  Would you rather have something to drink or snack on while reading? (tea, popcorn, candy, coffee)
I love coffee as much as reading. I do drink tea occasionally but coffee is my first choice.

10. Did you feel welcomed to the book blogging community when first starting your blogging?
Yes. When I got on BookBlogs everybody was so nice. Anything I needed help with I was helped. That is where I got most of my review request from. I have made a lot of friends since I have started blogging.

Book Review: Rarity from the Hollow by Robert Eggleton

( I received this ebook by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Goodreads Summary: Lacy Dawn's father relives the Gulf War, her mother's teeth are rotting out, and her best friend is murdered by the meanest daddy on Earth. Life in the hollow is hard. She has one advantage -- an android was inserted into her life and is working with her to cure her parents. But, he wants something in exchange. It's up to her to save the Universe. Lacy Dawn doesn't mind saving the universe, but her family and friends come first.

Rarity from the Hollow is adult literary science fiction filled with tragedy, comedy and satire.








This book was written very well and the writing was very vivid. This was not a simple book and it took me a minute to get into it. It had a sci-fi feel to it but it transitions into a more realistic atmosphere. This touches on some subjects on child abuse and as well as victims that suffer from PTSD and domestic violence. All of this is from the perspective ele…

Interview Questions
1.) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I’m not sure if you could call it an interesting writing quirk, but I have to listen to music when I write because it helps me concentrate.
It is quite common for me to go to my Bjork, Limp Bizkit, NIN or Machine Head collections if I need inspiration for a fight scene or to my Ellie Goulding, Evanescence and Eurythmics selections to help me create a magical or romantic passage.
If I do not have music on, I can get distracted very easily and it would take me longer to complete the task at hand.
