Blogger Interview: Jaime and Patricia from Two Chicks On Books

Today I have an interview with the two lovely “chicks” behind the blog Two Chicks On Books!

What are you like outside of blogging?

Jaime– Pretty mellow. I love to watch sports and cook and of course read.

Patricia– I’m actually lead a very hectic life. Lol. Not anything exciting either but lots of running around with my husband and our three kids. I also love to read of course and I volunteer quite a bit.

What book changed your life?

Jaime- Honestly? I’d have to say Twilight because it brought me back into reading after a long hiatus and because of that I started blogging. Another is Interview with the Vampire because it introduced me to the world of the paranormal which is my favorite.

Patricia- Life changing? Well, I don’t know that there is one single book that has been life changing but there are many books that have affected me. Harry Potter was a huge one. I honestly think that that this series in particular has brought my family closer together.

What made you decide to start your blog?

Jaime- I had seen a lot of bloggers on twitter and loved their reviews and I thought I could do that I read like crazy anyways.

Patricia- I’d never really considered it until Jaime approached me about it but I have to honestly say that I am really enjoying the experience of it and hope to continue to do it for a long time to come.

What blogs/bloggers inspire you?

Jaime- Rachel from Fiktshun she’s simply amazing! She has 5 blogs I have no idea how she does it. Pam from Bookalicious she’s one of the most helpful peeps and a good friend. Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads she pushes me to read stuff I normally wouldn’t.

Patricia- There’s so many great blogs out there but I think that my biggest inspiration is Rachel from Fiktshun. She’s ah-may-zee-ing! She has multiple blogs centered on books and they are all a joy to read. I also really love Mindy’s blog (Magical Urban Fantasy Reads) I love her new layout and I love her honest opinion on all her reviews. She does really cute vlogs, too. Kristina from Kristina’s World of Books does some cool features on her blog such a book/photography that I really enjoy.

What are your goals for your blog in the future?

Jaime– Pretty much the same keep reviewing, keep reading, and have fun with it!

Patricia- To keep having fun with the blog but also to just keep enjoying what we are doing.

What is your best book blogging moment?

Jaime– Probably going to RT last year I got to meet some bloggers I had gotten close with and some really amazing authors! Richelle Mead even used a picture of us from my blog post on her blog.

Patricia- I was totally stoked when Cassandra Clare posted a link to my review of Clockwork Prince on her tumbler and we got a gazillion hits. That was wicked. Also, being a blogger I’ve discovered that there are many aspects to the book world having met some awesome authors whether that’s in person or on twitter has been very cool.

    It’s awesome when moms blog! I think they bring so much energy and enthusiasm to their reviews, and if they have older kids, they often tell us what they thought too.

    Lovely interview 🙂
