Better Know A Blogger is a feature hosted by Karen at For What It's Worth, Tiger from All-Consuming Media, and myself. Basically, we interview bloggers we think you should know. Today I'm featuring one of my favorite Twitter buddies, Alexa from Alexa Loves Books. Alexa, take it from here!
Blog: Alexa Loves Books
Blogging since: April 2011
How did you get the name for your blog?
My blog name is a simple declaration that's been repeated over and over again in my life - Alexa Loves Books. A lot of people say this about me or when referring to me, and I've wholeheartedly embraced that truth.
How have your reading habits changed since you started blogging?
I actually make more time for reading, as well as consume a lot more novels than I used to. Reading will always be a leisure activity to me, but now I don't feel guilty about constantly immersing myself in books since I have an extra reason to do so *smiles*
I, surprisingly, also read on a schedule nowadays, which is something I'm still getting used to. Though I don't necessarily always follow my schedule, it does give me a better structure and focus when it comes to reading.
How do you choose which book to read next?
I try to follow my schedule (see above question), but more often than not, I grab what appeals to me at any time. There are just days when I need my paranormal fix, days when contemporary calls out to me or days when I just want to revel in the joys of historical romances.
Who is your favorite literary couple?
Ooh, this is a hard question. So I'm probably going to cheat and answer based on genre:
Contemporary YA - Cricket Bell and Lola Nolan (Lola & the Boy Next Door)
Historical Romance - Evie and Sebastian (Devil in Winter)
Dystopian YA - Tris and Four (Divergent)
Paranormal YA - Grace and Sam (Shiver)
What book are you looking forward to the most this year?
There are a few sequels I'm looking forward to, namely Insurgent, Until I Die and Bitterblue. But as for new novels, I can't wait to read Incarnate and Born Wicked!
Great list of books! Thank you so much for dropping by my blog today! Be sure to check out Alexa Loves Books and leave her some love!
