Book Blogger Love-A-Thon

The Book Blogger Love-a-Thon is an entire day dedicated to spreading the love among blogs in the book blogging community. Throughout the day, you'll spend time leaving comments on blog posts, discovering new blogs to love,  tweeting and posting about old favorites to share your thanks and promoting some of the awesome blogs that you follow! There will also be other things happening - interview swaps, mini-challenges and maybe a giveaway or two or three! We're still working on finalizing all the details, but once we have a set schedule, we'll send it out to everyone who's signed up! This event is hosted by Alexa at Alexa Loves Books and Katelyn from Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands.

In honor of Book Blogger Love-a-Thon, I’m having a fun little interview with Annie from Random Reads. She’s got a fun blog, some great answers, and you can just feel her enthusiasm for books come through everything she says! So come. Meet Annie. You’ll dig her!

1. Since books is what we love, let's start with books! Best book you've read this year is...?
The best book I’ve read this year is, hands down, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn. For some strange reason, I was very impacted by this book. I’m not a person to dwell on a book after I’ve finished, but I just could not get Nick and Norah out of my head!  That, for me, is representative of a good book which is why it’s no wonder that Nick and Norah is one of my all-time favourites!

2. You could have a sleepover with any 3 characters from YA. Who do you invite?
The first person that pops to mind is Georgia from the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series. She’s hilarious! She’s quirky! When I think of “good time”, I think Georgia. She’d be a blast to hang out with for a night!

Hermione from the Harry Potter series is my second pick. I’ve always wanted to be a wizard and who better to teach me than ultra-brainy Hermione? Plus, she’s one of my favourite characters ever!
And last but certainly not least, Anne from Anne of Green Gables! I’ve always thought she was my kindred spirit and that if we were to meet, we would be instant friends! She’s so imaginative and adorable, and I would love to have her at my slumber party!

3. You've been cast to be an extra in a YA book to movie! Which book to movie adaptation is it?
I’ve always wanted to time travel back to Regency England. Everything was so sophisticated and so completely different from what I know. I would love to be in a movie set then so I can be one of the dazzling society ladies attending balls, wearing grand gowns. The only book I can think of that is set during Regency England is The Season by Sarah MacLean. A movie adaptation of this book would be a perfect way for me to live out my dream.
4. Confession - which genre do you just not enjoy (hist fic, fantasy, etc)?
The one genre I do not enjoy is paranormal fiction. After completing the Twilight saga, which wasn’t particularly enjoyable for me, I kind of tired of the paranormal craze. It’s so overdone and I feel like it should have ended six years ago. To me, every book in this genre sounds the exact same and having finished Twilight, I think I’m okay with not reading any more books about vampires, werewolves, or even zombies for a while.

5. If you could only read one book for the rest of your days, which book is it?
This is such a tough question! For starters, I don’t think I can ever imagine being stuck with ONE book for the rest of my life. I’d get bored so quickly but if I had absolutely no choice, I would probably pick War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. It’s HUMONGOUS and I am 100% sure it will take me ages before I can finish it, let alone understand it, which is the reason why War and Peace is the exact book I am looking for to sustain my reading craves for the rest of my life.

See?! What’d I tell ya. She’s a gem, that Annie! Be sure to swing by her blog to peep my interview (she asked some great questions!) and check out her blog.

If you’re not officially signed up for the Book Blogger Love-a-Thon, that’s totally fine! You can still pop around and see the other blogs and participate in the good times!

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. I like these questions, especially the sleepover one!! Though... the hating on paranormal took a tiny bite out of my heart. ;) I think Vampire Academy (if she hasn't already read it) would make her a paranormal lover for life.

  2. Great interview! And yay for Hermione, I love her and would love to have a slumber party with her too. =D

  3. I would love to hang out with Hermione and Georgia is indeed hilarious! :D Great interview.


  4. I have to confess that I also really got sick of the teen paranormal romance. I can read some of them but usually I breeze through and don't feel satisfied at all. War and Peace is a great choice, not one I would pick necessarily, but it would definitely keep you occupied for a WHILE!

  5. Great interview. Annie's answer to #2 is THE BEST! Georgia, Hermione and Anne are FANTASTIC! AND she wants to go to Regency England, one of my favorite times in history ever!

  6. I would join your slumber party for sure! Sounds like a great time :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven

  7. Thank you so much for the interview! I had a blast answering all your questions! :)

  8. Annie, you and I could TOTALLY be friends since you picked two of my favorite characters EVER (Hermione and Anne) to hang out with! Perhaps I can come and join in ;)

    Thanks for joining in on the Love-a-Thon Lisa! :)

  9. OMG EXTRA IN A REGENCY ERA BOOK WOULD BE EPIC. I would settle for that, Victorian, or like one of those spifftastic dances in Jane Austen books :)


Hey you! What do you have to say?
