Day One: Armchair BEA- Introductions



  1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? 
 My name is Amanda. I love to read almost everything. I have 3 other siblings. I am currently going to be going into have a history degree and going to the college in the fall. I have been blogging for almost 5 years now. I got into blogging by starting to post mini reviews on Chapter Indigo. My reading progressed after I read the Twilight series. I started to blog on blogger after a few months after.  I am a Canadian blogger from Thunder Bay, Ontario. The special thing about Thunder Bay is that we have great scenery and yummy food! We are a great community who all know each other, or related. Persians are one of the most popular desserts in town (like a cinnamon roll with strawberry icing) Also great history! and the Sleeping Giant!

My blog is fun, loves to interact with authors to support their writing.

This is soo hard!! I have too many favorites but my most favorite would be Opposition by Jennifer L.

My favorite ideal place would be the library like in Beauty and the Beast

7.  If you were stranded on a deserted island, what 3 books would you bring? Why?  

I would bring ALL of Jennifer L. Armentrout's books if I could (more Half-Blood, White Hot Kiss) and Divergent because Jen is my favorite author, I would read ANY of her books because she is amazing!

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas or The Shatter Me Series!

  1. You know, I started reading heavily again after reading Twilight, too! And I am definitely older than the target demographic for that one, but I am okay with that. Lisa @Just Another Rabid Reader

  4. Now I'll be dreaming about that library all day.
    And I only recently started on the Twilight series (never thought I'd read it actually) and must say I can understand why so many people like it.

  9. Hey Amanda, Nice to "meet" you! I've been wanting to read How to Love by Katie Cotugno for a while now. Hopefully I'll be able to get to it sooner than later. It looks like we read a lot of the same genres, I added you on Goodreads. Enjoy Armchair BEA!

  12. Hello fellow Canuck! I've enjoyed following you on Twitter and it's great to get to know a bit more about you. :)

  13. LOL I'm not much of a YA reader but there are lots of books that I know of that ate YAs. That and of their authors for they transition between YA and other genres. I never read Twilight nor seen the movie so no comment on that. The Shattered series is great for having one of its books and Jennifer L. Armentrout is fabulous!

  14. CROWN OF MIDNIGHT!!! I love that series so much and cannot wait for Heir. Also, I won Open Road Summer and hear so many awesome things from the book - I can't wait to read it!

    It's nice to "meet" you Amanda :)

  26. I watched the Twilight movies first and then read the first book. Up until that time, I had no idea what YA was. As a reader, I prefer 3rd person and can find the constant "I"s annoying. But I'm learning about this dystopian world thing and have an idea for a story.

    I lived in Michigan for a few years and know that reading is a great pastime when it's snowing. Canada must be really cold! Nice to meet you.
