What is it you enjoy most about being a book blogger/reviewer? I love getting to talk to authors and find out more about them. One reason this came about was because Ali Dean, a young adult author of the series, Pepped Jones, allowed some of us (her fans) to get ARC's in exchange for reviews. I was totally all over that. I realized though only writing my review on GoodReads and Amazon didn’t seem like enough to get the word out about her book. So I created Book Plus Heart blog and a new passion of mine formed. So to answer your question: Talking, exchanging and helping authors. Authors to me are like movie stars. I get so excited talking to them online. I hope someday I can get to some book events and meet these amazing writers.
What is your preferred genre that you read/review? Most of my favorite books fall into these categories: YA Sports Contemporary; Paranormal specifically – Werewolves/ Shapeshifters; ANYTHING Pride and Prejudice adapted. Totally sucker for Jane Austen retellings.
Favourite read so far in 2015: Well some of the books that I read didn’t come out this year that became my favorites, but I will give you the top 2 that came out in 2015.- Pepped up Forever by Ali Dean (it was the last book in the series and I was so excited)
- The Heir by Kiera Cass (Book 4 in the Selection Series)
Favourite author: This I believe is an unfair question. I have favorite authors for different genres... SO... Overall Austen! Hands down. That women knew how to make you laugh, cry, and smile with glee.Favorite…
New Adult author is Kaylee Ryan. I haven't spoken to her nor have I done an ARC's for her. I have purchased every single one of her books and I enjoyed most of them immensely.
Favorite YA... I can't there are too many. Ali Dean, Ginger Scott, Kelly Orem.
Historical Romance Lisa Kleypas, hands down!

- Love in the Afternoon by Lisa Kleypas
and OF COURSE

Any additional comments? Thank you Kathleen for doing this. It was super fun. I am excited to read about other bloggers. What a great idea.
