Today’s question seemed amazingly appropriate because today is the Grown-Up YA’s 6 month anniversary!
G over at GReads! asked:
What made you decide to start your very own book blog?
The answer is simple: I love to read.
But lemme expand on this. I first started reading young adult lit back in 2009 when I first picked up Twilight after watching the movie on a boring Friday evening. After racing through the entire series in a matter of days, I was completely hooked. None of my other books seemed to appeal to me and for the next year satisfied myself with reading more YA books and fanfiction.
Then, sometime in 2010, I found Forever Young Adult which is an amazing blog that you should check out. It became my go-to site for checking out what books to read.
Last year, 2011, I got the urge to start a website but had no idea what. I wanted a place to talk about books, to write fun reviews, and share my thoughts about what I was reading with others. So I decided to start up a book blog! Thus, the Grown-Up YA was born!
I had NO idea what I was doing, but kept on anyway. And I kept on keeping on and tada! Here we are today!
