Armchair BEA: Introductions & Library Love

Tell us a bit about yourself: How long have you been blogging? Where are you from? How did you get into blogging?

I haven't been blogging for very long. Just a year or so (even less time on this particular blog). But it is something that I enjoy very much.

I was born and raised in Michigan. The only time I haven't lived here was when I went to college in Iowa for 4 years. 

My first book blog was originally meant to be a collaboration between me and some friends for a reading competition we were doing. Didn't work out, but I've been continuing to blog book reviews since. 

What book are you reading right now?

Top of my list is Unnatural Creatures, compiled by Neil Gaiman. I've got so many books that I still need to finish. Been in a reading slump of late. :( 

What is the top book in your TBR pile?

Just one? Hmm...I've actually got a few books in the pipeline. A couple from French Press Bookworks and another that I'll be getting from the library. I try to read at least one non-fiction book per month and I haven't been able to finish any of the ones that I've started so I'll probably focus on one of those.

What is your theme song?

It changes from year to year, season to season, but for the moment, I'm gonna go with: Rhinoceratops vs Super Puma by Ninja Sex Party.

What is your favorite genre and why?

I used to always answer this question with "Sci-Fi/Fantasy" as though they were easily interchangeable. These days, however, I have to answer with Science Fiction. I love Sci-Fi so much more than fantasy, especially the stuff that is heavy on the science. I also like it more because, I'm noticing, the more we learn about science, the more "Fantasy" becomes "Science Fiction". 


  1. I love all your gifs! I've never heard of that song or the band before. I'm going to have to go look it up. Enjoy Armchair BEA!

    1. They're not for everyone, just to warn you. The cartoon looks cute, but a lot of their songs are NSFW.

  2. LOL, the MLP images are great for this post. I hope you get out of your reading slump soon -- they suck! Armchair BEA

    1. I'm definitely working on it. I'm pushing through "Unnatural Creatures" and am picking up a couple of books from the library that I've been looking forward to. ^_^

  3. I'm not much of a sci-fi fan but I do like Gaiman!
    Happy ABEA!

  4. Love your visuals! I have been reading more sci-fi this past year. I especially loved Spin by Wilson and Love Minus Eighty by McIntosh. Have you read those?
