As she states on her blog: The Book Blogger Love-a-Thon is an event dedicated to spreading the love for blogs + bloggers! It’s time dedicated to exploring the blogging community, leaving a comment or two, meeting new friends and fostering positivity among the bloggers of the community.
I love this idea! What a great way to connect with other bloggers! I am not great at commenting on other people’s blogs, because I always feel shy, and think my comments aren’t really worth typing out, but I love when people comment on my blog no matter what they say (except for spam)!) I am sure all bloggers feel this way, and I am excited for the opportunity to share my blogging love. ❤
1. What’s your name?
2. Where in the world are you blogging from?
Just south of Houston, TX
3. How did you get into blogging in the first place?
I’m a stay at home wife with no children. I needed something to do to fill some time during my day. I love reading other book blogs, and I love reading, so I thought this would be a fun way to spend some of my day.
4. How did you come up with your blog name?
Since I don’t work, I made the comment that I am like a hobo, a vivacious hobo. I thought it was cute, so I decided to keep it. When I give out my card at bookish events, people seem to love the name. 🙂
5. What genre do you read and review the most on your blog?
Young Adult books of any genre, although I prefer to read mostly books about social issues (self harm, drug use, suicide, bullying, eating disorders, mental illness, you get the idea.)
6. What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews?
I have posted interviews from other bloggers, interviews from authors, giveaways, crafty things, personal posts, movies I want to see, really just whatever I feel like typing up that day.
7. Best blogging experience so far?
Connecting with other bloggers, and having some of my favorite bloggers let me interview them for this website. Also getting a Christmas card from an author was pretty awesome!
8. Favorite thing about the blogging community?
Having things in common with so many people, and just getting to know so many people that you would never get to meet in your day to day life. Yay internets!
9. Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2015!
Since I am doing the Book Buying Ban Challenge #Shelflove, I haven’t looked at any new releases or upcoming titles for this year. I am excited to read a ton of books that I already own and have not read yet though. Here are 5: Elixir by Hillary Duff, Panic by Sharon M. Draper, Room by Emma Donoghue, Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Dicks, and Wither by Lauren DeStephano.
10. What’s an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read?
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It is seriously awesome! Go read it now!
11. Which book boy or girl would be your book BFF?
I want so many of them to be my best friends. I would pick Hermione Granger if I could only pick one though. She is smart, funny, brave, and loyal. All good qualities to have in a BFF.
12. Apart from reading, what are your other hobbies or interests?
I like trying to make things I see on Pinterest, cooking, binge-watching shows on Netflix, and playing with Zoey.
13. Apart from book shopping, what else do you like shopping for?
Art, craft, and office supplies. I have a ridiculous amount of paper, pens, pencils, markers, and crayons.
14.At a party, the DJ suddenly changes the song – and it’s your song. What song would be playing?
15.Pick out either a book you want turned into a film/TV show, or a film/TV show you want turned into a book.
I want Harry Potter to be turned into a TV show so badly! Also I would like to see The Night Circus turned into a movie or TV show!
