Hi! First, thanks to everyone who visited my blog yesterday!
Today's event for Armchair BEA is to discuss our development as a blogger and the genre fiction.
My blogging experiences has changed me. I started this blog simply to pass time and it has grown into something I love; as something that makes me smile everyday. Although I am busy with other responsibilities, I enjoy blogging during my free time. My reasons to blog are varied: loving the community, the bloggers the met and the authors I interacted with. I also enjoy expressing my feelings about books, so others can discover new stories. I hope to spend this summer blogging and enjoying my last summer before college. I hope to finally create a header for my blog - particularly with graphic designing. If anyone knows how to do this, feel free to email me.
I hope to have posts that are not just reviews. I want to make a post like What Makes A Series Too Long and a post on Remember the Animals where I discuss my favorite animal characters in literature.
My dream is to pursue a career as a publisher, editor or literary agent. Manuscripts intrigue me and I want to help authors through the process of drafting books. I hope my enjoyment of writing reviews on this blog will help me accomplish that goal.
Mostly I want to make sure that I keep in touch with the bloggers I met in the last year and continue being their friends, and keep reading and commenting on their blogs. I also hope to make other blogging friends.
This weekend, with some of my high school friends, I created my own bucket list for the future. This is mine:
1. Go to Australia.
2. Write the music and lyrics of a song.
3. Go to Israel.
4. Help someone overcome a fear.
5. Go snorkeling.
6. Write a book that I am proud of.
7. Be a beta reader for a writer I love.
8. Cook a delicious meal.
9. Light a candle all by myself, to no longer fear being burned.
I like any paranormal creature but zombies. My favorite paranormal books are about people with special powers such as reading minds, moving objects with their minds, and flying. I also like ghosts and vampires. Recently, my family and I have been packing up our books because we are moving and my sister joked about how all my books feature a vampire related name. That's not true, but many, not all, of my books have vampires.
The book that will always stand out to me for this genre is Hidden Talents by David Lubar. You can read my review for this amazing story here.
Thanks for reading!
