I've been waiting for this event and now it's here! I guess your wondering what ArmchairBEA is? Well to put it into my perspective ArmchairBEA is an online event for those people who won't be able to attend BEA (Book Expo America). It is probably the most awaited event for book bloggers and bibliophiles alike. I really wish I could attend this event but unfortunately we all live in the Philippines so the best way to join the fun is via ArmchairBEA. You can visit the ArmchairBEA site here to know more about the event.
First agenda for today is the Introduction post in which I answer some of the questions to get to know about the blogger behind this blog.
I'm not really good in introductions, but I guess it has to be done. So who am I? My name is Jayjay, I co-own this blog together with Marz, Era and Geianne. I mostly do the posting since the three are busy with studies, but mostly because of reading lol. How long have I been blogging? The blog just celebrated it's blogoversary last May and so to be exact I've been blogging for 1 year and 1 month now. Why did I get into blogging? This is a long story but it all started when Dea at Teen Readers Diary made me read The Hunger Games, I really love it and decided to read more books and then I found myself making a Goodreads account. Started reviewing books and eventually I proposed to Marz and Era to create this blog. Then we found Geianne along the way... and the rest is history.
2. What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012?
I recently finished Frost by Kate Avery Ellison and it's really good, I'm part of a blog tour for this one so make sure to check it out. I'm not really sure what to read next but hopefully I'll sort it out. My favorite book this year would probably... The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. The book got me laughing and crying. It was utterly beautiful, I love it inside out.
3. Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
I love Game of Thrones lol still book related. I can't think of anything at the moment to share.
4. If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
If I could eat dinner with an author it probably would be Amy Plum, I love her! She's is just a sweetheart. I have the strangest admiration over Paris and reading her book Die For Me made me live my dream. The description of Paris was vivid, the story is one of a kind plus it has Vincent Delacroix which probably the character i'd choose to have dinner with beside Jace Wayland of course!
5. Where do you see your blog in five years?
Looking into it, I really love what I'm doing. I love reading and reviewing books. Love doing author interviews and talking about them. In five years I think the blog would probably be self hosted and would have a decent blog design.
I hope you had fun reading my answers, feel free to ask me anything. This is a wonderful event to know more about the bloggers behind the blog. Thanks to ArmchairBEA!
