Welcome to my blog, bibliophiles, booklings, and book dragons! I’m so excited to join the book blogosphere! To kick off my postings, I figured I’d introduce myself so you could get to know me and what to expect from my blog.
As you probably guessed from my URL, my name is Shannon and I absolutely love love love books! More on that later. I am a stay at home/work from home mom to two beautiful girls, and have been married to my husband since 2012. And here are some FAQ about me! (Ok…so they aren’t actually frequently asked…they’re just random things about me…and questions that I picked out…whoops)
Where do you live?
Ok stalker…I live in North Carolina. So you can usually find me complaining about the weather, wishing I was in the mountains, or drinking craft beer and eating local.
Do you have any hobbies?
Well, I have a 2.5 year old and a 9 month old (as of Sept. 2018), so my hobbies tend to include Daniel Tiger, Disney movies, Duplo block trains, and changing diapers. But in my (limited) free time, I love to read, try new restaurants with my husband, go for walks with my family, and fangirl about books, Doctor Who and random movies with my friends.
What is your favorite book of all time?
I honestly don’t think I have one. There are a few series I could read into eternity (Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, any of the Tortall series by Tamora Pierce, Throne of Glass, and the Grisha Trilogy)
Ok, Shannon that didn’t narrow it down at all. What is your favorite genre, then?
If you couldn’t tell by my last answer, I absolutely love YA Fantasy. But I’ll read pretty much any YA novel in general. I also enjoy romance, adult fantasy, and magical realism. Basically, if it has magic or a romance subplot, I’m all for it.
Why did you start a blog?
Honestly, I started a blog because most of the people I interact with on a daily basis don’t love talking about books the same way I do. I have a Bookstagram account (which you should totally go follow), but TBH, I hate posting long captions – and especially reviews – on there because I am terrible at typing on my phone and I’m too lazy to write the caption on my computer and send it to myself. #sorrynotsorry
What can I expect from your blog?
Ahhhh, finally the real question! My blog will most likely be 95% books – reviews, lists, and general ramblings of a bookworm. There may be the occasional post on parenting/life/food. I plan to post 2 times a week – hopefully Wednesdays and Fridays, but that’s totally up in the air because #momlife.
Do you accept requests to review books?
I do! If you have a book you would like for me to review (either you want my opinion on your favorite book, or you want me to review YOUR book), feel free to email me! I may not be able to get to it right away, but I love helping promote debut and indie authors, and would be honored to read your work!
Do you have a blog I should check out? What are some of your favorite topics to read about?
