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:Who is your favorite villain from a book?
Well, on New Adult Addiction I chose the internal conflict - because that really is my favorite villain scenario - but if I had to choose a more traditional answer I'd pick Randall Flagg from Stephen King's The Stand.
