Better Know A Blogger

Better Know A Blogger is a feature where we interview bloggers we think you should know. Today, please welcome Myranda aka Mandi from My{reads}da.

1. What is your name/blogger name?
My names Myranda, but my blogger name is Mandi

2. What is the name of your blog? (include blog link) How did you pick your blog’s name?
The name of my blog is My{reads}da. It is a combination of my name and my passion.

Myranda but take out 'an' and add 'eads'.
Here is the link:

3. How long have you been blogging? How do you measure blogging success?
I have been blogging since October 2010. I feel that as long as you have few devoted people who read and comment on the blog, that you are speaking to someone. And posting regularly! That is the main thing for me.

4. What genres/subgenres do you review, and what do you like best about those genres?
Young Adult is the main focus of my blog. In that category I love to read: Dystopian, Historical Fiction, Romance, Contemporary, Fantasy, Paranormal, and much more! I will occasionally read Adult Novels.

5. What are you reading right now?
I am reading The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgeraled (which is for school) and So Silver Bright by Lisa Mantchev. LOVE So Silver Bright so far! :D

6. Do you use social media? (include links to Twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, etc) What book-related things do you choose to tweet/facebook post about?
Yes, I do! I will openly admit that I am a Twitter addict! ^-^

I love to tweet as mentioned above. I will tweet about anything having to do with books. A book that I just finished reading, bookish news (new releases, books trailers, etc.), author signings, and more. As of recently I have found a very fancy app, and will sometimes share the images I capture. :)

7.What's your favorite place to read?
I love reading on my bed, it's the only really quiet place I have. When it's a nice day outside I will read in my hammock. I can read in where though.

8. What are the top 5 books in your TBR (To Be read) pile?
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (< I know! I'm crazy right! I just keep putting it off....) The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Fagen
All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin
Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer
The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross

My TBR pile is overflowing! So it was really hard to pick the top five which are in no order.

9. Obligatory controversial question: Love triangles! Love ‘em or hate ‘em, and why?
Sometimes I love them, then other times I hate them. When it's two really amazing guys, I love it! Because it's so hard to pick which one is right for the character. But then you have the one where the girl and the guy are perfect, and you love them like that. Then some body has to mess it up. Do you get what I'm saying? 10. What's the best thing about blogging and reviewing books? The best thing: All the amazing people I have met! I really love having people to talk to about books. I don't have any friends that really like to read, so I turn to my blogger friends! I love reviewing books, because I love to share with everyone some really great books and authors.

Thanks, Myranda, for dropping by! Everyone, be sure to check out Myranda's blog for reviews, giveaways and more!!
