Better Know A Blogger is a feature where we interview bloggers we think you should know. This edition of Better Know A Blogger features Cynthia from A Blog About Nothing. Please welcome her!
1. What is your name/blogger name?
My real name is Cynthia Aguirre, soon to be Lopez which should be my married name but I never changed it. Everyone really knows me as cynthial11 which is my blogger name I guess, it's just the one I can remember and use for everything. I have a hard time memorizing different names and stuff so I like to keep it simple. The l and 11 after my name have absolutely no meaning but couldn't find one that was easier. Yeah I'm soo not interesting at all. =P
2. What is the name of your blog (provide link)
ok so the name of my blog is A Blog about Nothing which I came up with from watching Seinfeld. That episode when George and Jerry are talking about what their show would be about and George came up with the idea of it being about nothing, "a show about nothing" he said it would be just pretty much normal stuff they do everyday and that it would be interesting that way. Well I used to love watching Seinfeld and that just stuck with me and so I decided to call my blog like that of course I added the "except lots of reading" at the bottom of the title so people won't be confused. Only a handful of people really know it all came from that Seinfeld episode.
3. Do you have an auto-buy author, someone whose writing is so good, you have to read everything they write?
Yes, I do... Maggie Stiefvater. I'll buy anything she writes and recommends. I love her writing so much it's so poetic and beautiful. Also Cassandra Clare of course, I love The Mortal Instruments series and cannot wait for City of Fallen Angels, I need more Jace!!!!
4. Who is your all-time favorite couple in literature? (And/Or favorite male character)
Ack! This one is sooo hard, I love Jace and Clary soooo much, they're one of my favorite couples, also Sam and Grace and Hermione and Ron. I can't pick just one, there's so many!! Favorite male character is Jace, I just love his snarky attitude and pretty much everything else about him. Oh wait, Ash is right up there too, next to Jace. Love love Ash!
5. Do you have an e-reader? Do you prefer e-books or regular books, or use both?
No I don't, I want one but I know that it will never replace my love of real books to me. I love the smell of books and an ereader just doesn't compare to that. I would definitely use both if I had one but regular books will always come first. =)
6. What are your Top 5 picks for the best books of 2010?
Ack! Another hard one!!! There were so many great book in 2010, it's hard to just pick 5 but I'll choose some randomly.
Anna and The French Kiss
The Body Finder
The Iron Daughter
7. What book or series has been sitting in your TBR the longest?
Lol, there's a bunch. I think The Dark Divine and Fallen have been sitting there the longest. I've been wanting to read them but as soon as I get close to doing it some other book catches my attention first and I just keep putting them off for later. I'm thinking of just giving up on them. We'll see..
