Kicking off Armchair BEA- Introductions First!

It's Interview Day for Armchair BEA! To kick start the Armchair BEA fun we are getting to know each other though a little interview we are all doing! To see other interviews click here. To learn more about Armchair BEA check here.

Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? 

My name is Erika, I am the blogger her at Rescue Reads (a YA blog) and I have been blogging for one year. The Reason I got into blogging its pretty complicated. A year ago I decided to enter a few book giveaways on websites and just try my luck. I really had no intention of blogging at that point, but eventually I won an ARC that was yet to come out as my fist book and I decided to try and review it, and it lead up to this.

What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2012?

I am currently reading The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson. My favorite book of 2012 so far is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

What is your favorite feature on your blog (i.e. author interviews, memes, something specific to your blog)?

I really like Waiting on Wednesdays and Cover memes, I really like finding new books and adding them to my TBR list.

Where do you see your blog in five years?

I really hope that I might be continuing it, as I have been so far. I really do enjoy the community here and I would love to stay in it!

Which is your favorite post that you have written that you want everyone to read?

Oh... I wrote a discussion post on negative reviews that I think did very well that can be found here.

If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?

John Green, because I am a BIG Nerdfighter and he's awesome.

What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?

Literary location? Like BEA? Then yes, BEA. If you mean a books setting- Hogwarts!

What is your favorite part about the book blogging community? Is there anything that you would like to see change in the coming years?

I love the people! Pretty much everyone is super nice and fun to chat with! If I could change one thing it would be all the drama! Seriously!

Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?

Yes! Before blogging I was very picky about what books I would read, and now I read a lot of different things, including Historical Fiction and Fantasy which I didn't read before. 


  1. TFIOS!! I love that book to pieces! I'm also a big fan of WOWs, even though my parents's wallets are absolutely not fans. ;) I agree about the drama thing- I feel like the book blogging community tends to blow things up A LOT. It can get a little crazy! It's my dream to go to BEA! I'm crossing my fingers for next year, actually. I'm already saving up! I just hope that I can go.

    I loved learning more about you, Erika!! Have fun during Armchair BEA. =)

  2. I totally love Waiting on Wednesday too, I love finding out about new books and I can find more great books to add to my TBR list as if it needs to get any bigger lol. Would love to get to go to Hogwarts it would be so cool. Hope you have a really great day!

  3. Hi Erika,
    Just stopping to say hi--old follower!!

  4. I really liked The Fault in Our Stars, too.

  5. Ha, Hogwarts would be an awesome place to visit! Now I want to read Harry Potter again...

  6. I've seen a lot of people talk about TFiOS as their favorite book. It must be really epic!

    I really enjoy WoW too- my wishlist is always growing.

    If you have the time, I’d love to hear from you at my armchair BEA post.

  7. WoW is probably my favourite meme too, it's so amazing to get exposed to books I might not have found otherwise. I remember your negative review post, I commented on it how much I loved it - definitely on to highlight!

    Happy Armchair BEA!

  8. Yay for John Green! He remains my favorite author that's alive today. I just love the depth of all his books. DFTBA!

  9. I really need to read a John Green book. I have a few on my shelves but need to break into one soon. :)
