I want to thank Stacy Bailey Darnell/Literary Mania Reviews for nominating me for this award. I am so excited and happy that my fellow blogger thought of me for this. I recently started my blog about a month ago. It took a while to get off the ground, I was scared and really intimidated by other blogs. I have to also thank, Author Kimberly Knight for finally just shoving me off the edge and making me swim! <muah> A huge thank you to my husband for believing in me and my followers on my blog, Facebook and Twitter! I appreciate every one of you. I love all the bloggers I have met they have been so helpful and supportive!

8. Who is your favorite BBF?

This one is easy Travis Maddox...followed by Emmett Cullen...Then Griffin from Effortless (I love Kellan but Griffin is more my pace)... Christian Grey! Yeah that's my top that I do not think will change unless someone can beat Travis and I don't see that happening. 

9. Who would you cast as that BBF?
I love this question...ok my perfect Travis is this one:
Hot right? that's Daniel Conn....swoon but he is not an actor so if I had to pick an actor then it would be:
Kellan Lutz...That's my pick's.

10. What authors have you met & gotten books signed by?

Sadly, none YET! I do have Jamie McGuire's paperbacks of her Providence Series that are signed by her does that count?

11. What made you decide that you wanted to start a Bookblog?

My love for books and the indie authors that have been so cool and talk back to their fans. It helps make that connection real. I love reading new books and letting people know about them. Just the other day I was in K-mart and a woman was struggling to decide which book she should buy, her boyfriend looked so bored and just kept shrugging saying "I don't know, whatever" never looking up from his phone. So I stepped in and started recommending books. Of course I was like you definitely need to read Beautiful Disaster. We talked for a while I told her an e-reader is pretty awesome pulled up my Kindle app on my phone and showed her my books. Her face was priceless. Her boyfriend was excited because he wouldn't have to go shopping for books and could all be done at home. So that is why I started a blog my love for books and to help others discover them. Plus I love my book boyfriends.

                11 random things about me.

1. My husband is a music producer and recorded me singing Vanessa Carlton - A Thousand Miles in his studio, I sent the only copy to my Best Friend in New Jersey. I can't sing so her dogs were howling along.

5. When I was pregnant I used to listen to classical music and read Edgar Allen Poe to my baby hahaha (not all the time, but a lot in the last trimester, odd)
