When did you start blogging?I started this blog on December 7, 2012. I also have another book blog called New Adult Addiction, but I needed a place to put YA reviews so I came up with this idea.
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. I'm not really much of a YA reader, but I've come across a few in my NA reading, that are really worthwhile. I tend to like books that are not about the ordinary world, but rather a world that's either upside down or backwards, or futuristic in some way.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging? Meeting other cool book loving people.
Q: If you could choose one supernatural being/creature to really exists what would it be and why?
I'd pick dragons. I think they are pretty cool and I'd actually like to start reading more about dragons. I read a review of Seraphina a few weeks ago and it really got my interest up.
Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty's anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.
Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen's Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints of a sinister plot to destroy the peace, Seraphina struggles to protect her own secret, the secret behind her musical gift, one so terrible that its discovery could mean her very life.
In her exquisitely written fantasy debut, Rachel Hartman creates a rich, complex, and utterly original world. Seraphina's tortuous journey to self-acceptance is one readers will remember long after they've turned the final page.
