Me: Tell us about your blog and what you feature on it.
Erin: I feature books of practically all genres from the bestsellers to the ones you’ve never heard of before. Mostly I host for book touring sites but still pick up one or two on my own to review. Basically, I love stories whether they’re YA, horror, fantasy, historical or paranormal, you name it. I have a soft spot for genre fiction and each book has a story to tell and for some reason, I’ve never been able to look away.
Me: Since you’ve started blogging, what are some of your favorite blog/book related memories?
Erin: Meeting new people! The most rewarding part of being a book blogger is getting someone’s story out there. At the very beginning it was just to family and friends but over the year I’ve started to find more and more people who like to do the same thing I do.
Me: Do you have a favorite genre that you tend to gravitate towards?
Erin: Horror. I have a guilty pleasure when it comes to horror. Good character development will draw me in. The more I love them, the more intense the story is, for me. Plus, with horror, it’s meant to be unpredictable and it sneaks into several other genres, much like romance. Just look at Game of Thrones. It’s considered a fantasy but there’s some horrific things going on in there!
Me: Are there any favorite book to movie adaptations you’ve enjoyed (not necessarily YA books)?
Erin: Green Mile! Holy buh-jeebizz. That was one of the best adaptations, in my opinion. I was also pleased with most of the Harry Potter’s, The Help and Fight Club. It’s really hard to make a good movie adaptation of a book. Everyone has a slightly different perception during a book it so it’s a tricky business.
Me: What was the last book you read that you obsessed over?
Erin: The Kept by James Scott. It was a dark historical fiction that included murder, revenge, and a deeply complicated relationship between a mother and son. Sent chills down my spine at how easily it pulled me in.
For YA, the last one was The Hunger Games. The first book so was so fantastic I devoured it in a day! The other two weren’t as explosive but they were certainly entertaining and I had to know how it ended.
Me: Anything exciting coming up on your blog that you’d like everyone to know about?
Erin: Well, there’s this Love-A-Thon! I’m really excited to be apart of it and I have tours scheduled all the way up to June of 2014 so I’m stoked to have a good year. The first was a tester, the second is a chance to improve the blog and make it even better.
Yay! Thanks to Erin and especially to Alexa and Kate! Can’t wait to meet new bloggers and share my love all my wonderful bloggy friends!
