Book Blogger Hop...is an awesome weekly meme hosted by Crazy for Books that gives book bloggers the chance to discover, support, and connect with fellow book bloggers and book lovers.
“As a book blogger, how do you introduce yourself in your profile?”
Excellent question! I spent a great deal of time on my profile/about me and the end result is very "me" I think. I don't divulge any deep personal information, yet at the same time you get a perfect sense of who I am. And my introduction is very honest...meaning that the sarcastic, silly, adorkable girl you meet in my introduction is the same girl you'd get if you were to knock on my door and spend the day with me. I like to think that publishers, publicists, and authors would get from my profile that I'm serious enough about being honest with my reviews and wanting to promote books in general, while my followers would come to appreciate my laid back, nerdy personality. And I hope that my love and appreciation for books really comes across to people through my profile.

This Week's QuestionBook Disappointments: Have you ever come across a book you were so stoked to read, but it failed miserably in your eyes?
Book disappointments are the worst. It's never fun to finish a book you were so excited to read and be sorely dissatisfied. The following books have disappointed me in one way or another...but this is just my OWN personal opinion and is in no way a reflection of how I feel about the authors.
The Red Pyramid
I'm almost ashamed to admit my disappointment in this book and series because I love Riordan and his Percy Jackson series, which was why I was so stoked about his Kane Chronicles series. But I was just never able to get into the first book and I never finished it. I'm not sure if it was the timing or if I was just too used to and in love with the Percy Jackson books, but it just didn't live up to my expectations.
P.C. Cast and Kristin Cast
I had heard great things about this series and I received books 1-4 as a gift and I really liked them. I read book 5 and it didn't blow me away, but when book 6 came out I figured I'd give it a chance. But it didn't do anything for me. It just didn't pull me in the way the earlier books had and I lost interest in the series...which sucks because I was so excited about the series as a whole when I was introduced to it.
Feature and Follow Friday... is a blog hop, hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, that allows book bloggers to discover and connect with other book bloggers.

Q. It's that pesky magic book fairy again! She has another wish: What imaginary book world would you like to make a reality?
This is such a great question that I could have an endless amount of answers to! Let's see...well the 8 year old in me would love to stumble into Narnia and have tea with Mr. Tumnus, while the adult me would love to work at Merlotte's with Sookie and have "grown up" fun time with sexy vampire Eric Northman. I wouldn't mind spending my days at Fablehaven with Seth and Kendra or with Pippin and Merry in the Shire. And of course, my ultimate dream world would be the world of Harry Potter. I'd love nothing more than to learn to that I was a witch, get my letter, and be swept off to Hogwarts...or even the equivalent American school ;)
