I absolutely love Armchair BEA. If you can’t make it to New York for the conference, this is the next best thing. 😀 Today’s topics are Introductions and Literature. So I’ll start out with my intro, and then what I think of with the term literature. 😀
We were asked to answer five questions. Here are the 5 I answered. 😀
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
My name is Katrina. I’ve been blogging for about 2 1/2 years. I started blogging because I had nobody to talk to about what I was reading. Blogging provided the perfect outlet. I’m blogging from Dallas, TX. 😀

What genre do you read the most?
What I read depends on my mood. Lately, I’ve been reading a lot of New Adult romance. It’s just been speaking to me more than other genres.
What is your favorite blogging resource?
My biggest resource is probably Goodreads. I keep track of everything I read, and want to read, on there. I also see what friends of mine have been reading, and if any of those books would be ones that I like.
What book would you love to see as a movie?
This is a hard question since so many books are becoming movies lately. I’d love to see The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo on the big screen.
What do you think of when you think of literature? Classics, contemporary, genre, or something else entirely? We are leaving this one up to you to come up with and share the literature that you want to chat about the most. Feel free to share a list of your favorites, break down your favorite genre, feature your favorite authors, and be creative about all things literature in general.
When I think of literature I think of those books that were required reading in high school. I loved many of those books, but some of them completely turned me off from reading for a bit. I think that’s completely changing now. I’ve seen newer books included on those required reading lists, and I love that the YA genre has an effect on teens. I think they are able to read things that they connect with more.
