armchair BEA bonus interview!

according to the organizers of Armchair BEA: "One aspect of BEA and BBC that truly makes the event worthwhile is the opportunity to meet blogging friends face-to-face and get to know them outside of the blogging world.  However, just because we are not able to truly meet each other in real life, that does not mean we cannot get to know one another better!"  

you guys, i am quickly falling into a bookish bestie friendship with this girl. Jennifer is sweet, hilarious, and generally awesome in every way that i can tell. which, you know, i'm pretty much a fan of.  SO - in the continuation of Armchair BEA, i present to you Jennifer from Little Shelf!

five things we should know about you.
1. I'm a pretty nice person. I just don't like being mean, and I expect others to have the same courtesy
2. I love coffee. Yummmmm!

3. I'm a nerdfighter! No idea what I'm talking about? Visit this link: http://www.youtube.com/user/vlogbrothers#p/u/0/FyQi79aYfxU
4. I really dislike spoilers, to the point where I freak if people start talking about books or movies if I haven't seen them yet. I won't read reviews if I think there might be a spoiler. I don't want to know anything about the story other than a general idea of the plot.
5. I love pictures. I love to to take pictures (with my awesome camera - a Nikon D90, for those who want to know. One of my most prized possessions). I love posting covers BIG on my blog. Photography is my other hobby besides reading. 

i can testify that Jennifer IS a pretty nice person. also, the fact that she's a nerdfighter only makes me adore her more. i love me some John and Hank Green something fierce. 

four books you adore
1. The Cat Who Went to Heaven by Elizabeth Coatsworth - It's a book for young readers and was one of my favorites growing up.
2. The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling- I'm cheating here, because they're all great. If I had to chose only one, I'd start with the first one
3. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer- Yes. Yes, I did just choose a Twilight book. I'm torn between this one and New Moon. I just feel I really connected with the events that happened and love all of the characters. I'm not ashamed to admit it.
4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I had an immediate connection with this book. It's epic.

I realize that I chose mostly popular books, but thoseare truly books that I adore to no end. There's a reason they're all so popular, right? 

i have never read The Cat Who Went to Heaven...i should get on that! and obvs HP is the business.
three songs you jam out to like nobody's business! 
Lately? These are my favorites on my Youtube playlist right now:
1. Adele: Rolling in the Deep - Gorgeous voice! I can't get enough of her. Set Fire to the Rain is equally awesome.
2. Britney Spears: Dance until the World Ends - it's just fun to dance to!
3. Sky Ferreira: Animal (Miike Snow Cover) - This song is so deep and gritty. Love it. (here's a link if you can't find it:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3Z581wh85U&list=PLF2391D5C6609C6E5)

another thing we have in common? i am no longer shocked, just giddy! i'm all about Adele all the time. and i especially love that Jennifer did not even bat an eye when i asked her what songs she jams out to. unabahsed jamming out is something i am a huge fan of!  

two movies you love
1. Twilight
2. Harry Potter

Again with the generic answers. :/ (no need for the :/ face, Jennifer!)

I know that Twilight isn't the best made movie out there, but I love it anyways. I love the overall feeling, I love the soundtrack, and I love that it reconnected me back to my love of reading. I've always loved to read, but gave it up during college to focus in my schoolwork. After seeing the movie, I had to read the book. I haven't stopped since. 

Harry Potter is just obvious. It's so well done, and it's pretty darn close to the books. I love the actors, the music, and it's just awesome to see Hogwarts "for real". (agreed.)

one thing you want to do in your lifetime
There are lots of things, but the one fun thing would be...  
I want to go to Australia. It's gorgeous! I'd love to travel around and take pictures... and just enjoy the beautiful beaches! It doesn't hurt that I love their accent, as well. 

there you have her! Jennifer is such a sweetheart, and you'd be a fool not to go check out her blog. right now. that's right, i'm calling you out. go go go! also, she's shares her awesomeness on twitter

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. Aw! I love this...Don't be ashamed of your love for Twilight! I get so angry when people hate on those of us who love it!

  2. Thanks Lisa!! I had a great time doing this interview! We had so many things in common that I didn't even know about! Yay! I felt the same way when I read all of your answers. I feel like we're new blogger besties. :)

    Oh, and jamming out all crazy like is the best! Even my daughter thinks I'm nuts when I dance around the living room. :P

    I agree jasmine! I'm finally at the point where I'm proud to be a twilight lover. It's ok if people don't like it. More for me (and less rude, talking people in the theaters!)

    Oh!! and Lisa, did you see that you're listed as a prize winner on the armchair BEA blog?? Yay!


Hey you! What do you have to say?
