BBAW - Bookalicious Interview

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

If you haven't checked out Pam's blog yet, you should. She has an easy to navigate layout and a beautiful website. I hadn't seen her blog before we were paired up for the BBAW interviews, but now I've added her to my Google Reader. Seriously. Go take a look.

Here are Pam's answers to the interview questions. My answers to these same questions should be up on her blog sometime this week.


Why did you decide to start blogging about the books that you read?

I wanted an outlet to talk about the books I was reading, I was completely
unaware of the whole book blogging scene but was so happy to find so many
like minded individuals to discuss new and old titles with.


Is there a genre that you prefer to review?

I guess YA I really feel that genre is advancing now in a way it hasn't
before with authors like Jay Asher and Laurie Halse Anderson tackling
issues that children actually deal with and not being afraid to dig deep
into the tough topics.

Do you like to participate in any of the popular book blog memes?

I like to read the memes especially the Sunday Salon but I do not
participate because I want my blog to be completely unschedlued and
random. I do not like feeling pressured to post on a certain day or on a
certain topic. It just doesn't work for me.

How do you feel the internet and blogging about books is changing the
publishing world?

I think it is a very exciting time for publishing houses. With the
advancements of EReaders and online bloggers they have a chance to grab
even more readers than ever. After all word of mouth is the best
advertisement.

Who is your favorite author, and why?

My favorite author has always been the Bronte Sisters as a whole. Their
style is easy readable while still having the old world feel.

What was the first book you read as a child that got you hooked?

I remember reading a simplified version of The Swan Princess with the
school librarian and thinking that was the coolest thing ever. After that
I spent a lot of my free time in the library with her and she was really
the person who encouraged my love of reading.

I've never read The Swan Princess. But I do love Laurie Halse Anderson with all of my heart!
