Day 11!!!

I am so happy to be apart of this Author/Blog Spotlight tour for Book Boyfriend Reviews 2yr blogiversary. 
Today I am spotlighting Author Gretchen De La O and blog Verna Loves Books. 
 There is a short video where you can learn more about Author Gretchen De La O,  below is a Q&A with Verna Loves Books blog so you can get to know a bit more about that blog.

Gretchen was chosen because she has an amazing teacher/student series called the Wilson Mooney series as well as a romantic suspense called Prototype. Her books keep you enthralled and on the edge of your seat, mixed with the thing all us romantics love...the awww so cute. 

By day Gretchen teaches computers, by night she dons the cloak of motherhood, wifehood, and authorship. She is finding her way through self-publishing and is truly learning to let go with every curve and bump in the creative process. Gretchen enjoys writing about first loves and first times, in the first person. She is a firm believer that anything is possible if you set your mind to it; and what you expect out of life, always finds a way of showing up.

She happily lives in Northern California with her amazing husband, their three terrific boys, her talented mother, one goofy black lab, two crazy kitties, and seven happy chickens. Even though it sounds like it, she doesn't live on a farm.

The blogger that is being spotlighted is Verna Loves Books. Click on the link under her logo to check out her amazing blog.

1.When did you begin your blog? 

I began my blog in October of 2013

2. What made you want to be a blogger?
 I was reading a lot and following other blogs and I just loved it. I loved that they were sharing so many amazing books and I wanted to do the same. So a friend of mine talked me into creating my own blog and I'm so glad she did because I enjoy helping all the amazing authors.

3.What has been one of your most favorite books to review? 
I absolutely loved reviewing Death of the Body by Rick Chiantaretto. It is such an amazing read. It will hook you from the beginning and never looses your interests. His writing is unique and his writing is just beautiful.

4.What was your number one book of 2014 and why? 
My number one book in 2014 would have to be Irrevocable by Skye Callahan. I absolutely loved this book and think everyone who loves books like Fifty Shades will as well. It's remarkable and an amazing story that stayed with me for days. Irrevocable is dark, exciting, suspenseful, and just overall everything I could have possibly hoped for in a book. It absolutely blew me away 

5.Who else do you have on the blog with you?
On the blog I have some amazing girls that review for me, Tess & Randi. Love them to pieces. Then I have Tess helping me keep up with things on the blog. She's a wonderful friend and I love her to pieces. We also have Bree, who has been remarkable to me and supported me for a long time now.

6. Do you post everyday or every other day or certain times of the week? 
I post pretty much everyday. 

7. What is your favorite genre? 
I have to go with the dark and suspenseful and erotica books.

8. You want readers to come to your blog so what do you do to separate it from other blogs? 
I try to have fun giveaways as often as I can and come up with new spotlights to share with the followers. Like recently I started spotlighting models who have been on book covers or used as a muse. I also have fun takeovers planned as often as I can.

9. What do you love about blogging? 
I love that feeling you get when someone tells you thank you or how thankful they are that you took the time to share their book for them or to review their book. I love being able to share my love of books with the world.

10. What goals do you have for your blog this upcoming year? 
The only goal I have set for myself right now with the blog is to do my best to get more reviews done because I didn't get as many done last year as I would've liked. And to get caught up on the books from authors I support. Also to come up with more fun things to share with everyone.
