Today I have the lovely Rie from Mission To Read. Isn’t her blog button adorable?
What are you like outside of blogging?
I’m pretty boring actually. I’m a history graduate student and as such school and interning takes up a majority of my time. Right now during winter break I’m kinda consumed with baking. I love to bake. I’ve baked like 4 pecan pies (my favorite) since winter break began two weeks ago. As well as a ton of other sweets. My husband and I’s waistline is starting to expand.
What book changed your life?
On the surface, Everneath seems to be a simple story about Hades and Peresphone, but I found it to be about so much more. It deals with things such as addiction, depression, and family.
What made you decide to start your blog?
Reading has always been a social activity for me. As a child my entire family would grab a book on Sunday afternoons and read for a few hours. My sister and I would then discuss the books we were reading.
I had an writing blog a long time ago and the people that stopped by were more often book bloggers than other writers. I didn’t think of it much then, but when I moved away from my sister I missed the social aspect of reading. That’s when I decided to start my own book blog.
What blogs/bloggers inspire you?
What are your goals for your blog in the future?
I would love to network more with the book community. I love twitter, but sometimes I slack off and I’m horrible at commenting. I would love to be more social.
Do you love or hate your mailman?
I LOVE my mailman. I think he kinda hates me though. I start squeeing and he gives me the strangest looks. Oh well! I can’t contain my excitement when amazing books come.
