Armchair BEA 2014 - Introduction Post

 || Website || Twitter Hashtag #armchairbea  || Instagram Challenges || Full Agenda ||

I'm excited Armchair BEA is back again. It was SO fun last year, and this sounds like a good thing to play with considering how rough the last few weeks have been.

Like last year, the first day is an introduction post with ten questions for the reader/blogger to answer to help break the ice and get the creative juices flowing. They recommend choosing FIVE to answer, not the full ten, which is a good thing since with some of them, it just isn't coming to me.

 My Five Questions

1. Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online. 

"Chaotic but fun pages filled with everything bookish I can think of" - this one sentence pretty much sums up the site. It's all over the place sometimes, but it all comes together for everything I can think of with what I love about books and reading.

All my social networking is on the buttons on the right side of the site under the header.

What does your favorite/ideal reading space look like? (Pinterest encouraged!)

There are so many amazing reading areas on Pinterest and ideas for it. My board for this is called  Groovy Reading Spots.

Some of my top favorites from the album -

Yeah, I'll never be able to have that view, but would be nice...

Ultimate inspiration and bliss

 Reading and the outdoors go together

What genre do you read the most? I love to read because ___________________ .

Urban Fantasy is my favorite - some of it can be formulaic, but for the most part I like the fantasy elements set in the modern world, supernatural abilities and creatures, and that most of them are part of series. Generally romance doesn't take up so much of the story that it doesn't have a plot of it's own, and generally it's told through a first person POV, my favorite.

What was your favorite book read last year? What’s your favorite book so far this year? 

Definitely Ever After by Kim Harrison. Unfortunately I wasn't as crazy about Undead Pool in February. This year my favorite was Gone with the Wind. Yes, old, but new to me.

Share your favorite book or reading related quote. 

I have quite a bit of reading quotes saved on Goodreads. The first favorite that comes to mind is:

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only once.”
George R.R. Martin, A Dance with Dragons
