I'm happy to welcome Julie from The Book Review to my blog!
About the Blog
Why did you begin blogging?
I started blogging so that I could become a full time book reviewer.
What is something you learned while blogging?
Blogging introduced me to a great community people. I learned that people are willing to help each other.
Best part about blogging?
I love sharing the books I've read with others. I also like helping authors gain exposure for their work.
What book do you think everyone should read?
Well, it's sounds like a cliché, but I still think "To Kill a Mockingbird" is the one book everyone should read at least once.
Which genre do you prefer?
I read most genre's at least a little, by my "go to" genre would be mysteries.
Who is your favorite heroine?
Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice
What book would you want to be a movie?
I'm not all that crazy about most movie adaptations of my favorite books. Hollywood gets it wrong so much of the time. But, if they did it right, I think the Eve Dallas novels would be great on the big screen. (Nora Roberts- J.D. Robb)
What is your favorite quote?
Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved reading. One does not love breathing. ( Harper Lee from To Kill a Mockingbird)
If you could live in any book world which world would it be? Why?
That's a hard one. I think maybe a Julia Quinn novel. Regency period historical romance would be fun to experience. I would love to wear one of those gowns and attend a ball. I wouldn't want to stay long though, too many rules and no women's rights.
If you could meet any author (alive or dead) who would it be? Why?
Dorothy Eden. Dorothy wrote romantic suspense in the late fifties through the seventies. Her books were occasionally marketed as Gothic mystery/romance. But, I think Dorothy has been a great influence on the romantic suspense novels we read now. Her plots were well ahead of their time. I would love to pick her brain.
