Armchair BEA is a virtual event for the book bloggers who can’t attend Book Expo America and the Book Blogger Convention in New York this June (June 4 – 8, 2012). Go to Armchair BEA for more details and to join in all the fun!
Today’s post is about getting to know the participants of Armchair BEA where the bloggers have to answer any of the five questions. So here I go!
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
I am Sana and I turned 22 years old this year (I still can’t believe that!). I am a university student majoring in Environmental Sciences and minoring in Food Science and Human Nutrition. I have been blogging since the November of last year. I decided to get into blogging because I was on Goodreads for abnormal amounts of time everyday and so discovered that most of the bibliophiles had blogs. I checked them out and I felt like this is something I can totally fit into: the blogging community. Needless to say, it has been a great experience and I have made more virtual book buddies in this short amount of time than I ever did in the real world.
What are you currently reading?
I discovered that I’ve been reading more ever since I started blogging and usually reading more than one book at a time, too. Currently, I am reading Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore for its blog tour as well as Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers which is actually on hold because I got busy with the university stuff.
What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?
Idris from The Mortal Instruments series. No doubt about that. The whole confrontation scene of Jace and Clary with Valentine and how Idris had the power to lure Jace actually made me want to snatch that piece of shattered glass from Jace and jump into Idris somehow. So definitely that. I mean who doesn’t want to see glass structures and endless greenery. Sigh…
What is your favorite part about the book blogging community?
My favorite part of the book blogging community is making friends that one can share the love of books with. The feeling of finding a friend who can understand why reading is not just a habit but a part of life is just exhilarating and unmatched. Also, I get to squeal. Virtually. *wink wink*
Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?
Definitely, I used to read more books from the adult genre than the young adult. However, being on twitter and following blogs I love, I have started reading more and more YA fiction and God knows, it is highly addictive!
Violette Severin says
When I was younger I was able to read more than one book at a time and maintain interest in the first book(s). Now I find that I don't even remember the storyline of the first book. The middle aged brain just ain't what it used to be!

🙂 I like YA but I'm still a hardcore romance reader too 🙂 I LOVE TO SQUEEL virtually too!
It was so nice to meet you 🙂 Armchair BEA @ the Brunette Librarian
So you enter Idris through a shattered glass? Sounds like a great choice!
