About Me

About Katie’s Book Blog:

Katie’s Book Blog was created in January 2009.  After spending months checking out other young adult book blogs I decided it was past time I created my own.  Since then I have fallen in love with the blogging community and I don’t know where I would be without the wonderful friends I have made over the past two years.  You can expect Katie’s Book Blog to be around for many years to come.

About me:

I’m Katie. (I bet you never would have guessed that!)  I’m a twenty-year-old college student living in Colorado with my parents, older brother, and a very cute old dog named Penny!
I am probably one of the only book bloggers who has no interest in becoming a writer.  Instead I want to work in publishing and do all I can to get other book blogger’s books published (hehe).  My passion is definitely more for reading the books and forcing others to read them too.  =)
Random facts about me:
  • My favorite book growing up was Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine.  It is still one of my favorites but not at the top of the list anymore.
  • My favorite genres to read are:  dystopian, contemporary, and historical!
  • My favorite movies are:  all Pirates of the Carribean, all Harry Potter, all X-Men, Iron Man 1&2, any superhero movies really, all Fast and Furious movies, and The Proposal (random, I know)!
  • When I was two-years-old I was bitten by a brown recluse spider and though I have no memory of it, I am terrified of spiders to this day.  (And snakes but don’t ask why!)
  • My favorite food is macaroni and cheese.  I will eat macaroni and cheese from any place but I especially love Panera’s.
  • I listen to any and all kinds of music but some of my favorite bands are Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Three Days Grace, and as of recently, Christina Perri!
  • I think Johnny Depp is extremely hot even though he is old enough to be my dad. =P

  2. I just stumbled across your blog because I’m thinking of starting one too but I see we have many things in common, like how you also want to get into publishing. I’m not sure if you’ve started on this journey yet, but what kind of schools or training have you considered?

  3. Just wanted to say I absolutely love your blog and you’re the reason I started one myself, best wishes with the future of your blog X

  5. Hi Katie! Reading your “about” section was like reading about myself, im not even kidding!! Also, I am a major book lover and i was thinking to blog myself but I really have no clue where to start. I’ve read other blogs as well and I love how so many people make blogger friends, and I wish more than ever to be a part of it.
    I welcome any suggestions and motivation that you or anyone else here could offer me?
