Hi, I’m super excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year! It’s a great alternative for people who can’t go to the actual BEA and filled with fun events. The next best thing for sure. If you’re new (or even if you’re not) the blog, say hey! I’d love to ‘meet’ you. :)

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 Elena and I’m currently a student. I haven’t been blogging that long and we only hit the six month milestone this May. I still consider this blog pretty new to the blogosphere. I got into blogging because my co-blogger, Kendra, and I used to yammer about YA books all the time to our friends. One day, I joked about starting a book blog because it seemed fun and then Kendra said we should actually do it together! It was kind of nerve wrecking but definitely worth it. It’s a whole new, shiny world for me.

2. Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.

I have an major, major sweet tooth. I absolutely love pastries, cookies, cupcakes, cakes, and basically anything to do with ice cream. My friend (hi, Catherine) once told I  have an astonishing capacity for ice cream and “NO REALLY IT IS SO IMPRESSIVE, ORDINARY PEOPLE CANNOT DO THAT!” So I really enjoy ice cream. Like, a lot.

3. What is your favorite feature on your blog (i.e. author interviews, memes, something specific to your blog)?

The sound bite feature! It’s our version of a discussion post that I made on a whim and I’m so glad I did.  I really love hearing what people say because they’re always insightful and thoughtful. I really appreciate the comments people leave and for participating.

4. Which is your favorite post that you have written that you want everyone to read?

I like my very unofficial and informal guide to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! What a long title. You, sir, are a mouthful. Another post I love but actually didn’t write is Kendra’s review of 50 Shades of Grey. It starts off with this lovely sentence, “It was literally one of the worst reading experiences of my life and forgive my language, but you really can’t star that shit.”

5. What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?

Of course the most obvious answer is Hogwarts. Beside that, I think I would really like to visit Wonderland from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I’m in love with this paragraph from Listverse, “In the story, Wonderland is a dream world. However, thematically, Wonderland is not really another world. It is in fact our own world, only seen through the eyes of a child.” I’m obsessed with the idea of dream worlds and I love the last line. Can you imagine how different you would see the world if you were a child again?

    I was very close to choosing Hogwarts too. I have a feeling we’ll see more bloggers choose it too. Nice to meet you, Elena.

  3. Hi Elena! My stomach growled reading about your sweet tooth and ice cream, haha. I LOVE our local creamery’s version of chocolate peanut butter ice cream. SOO good :P I’m off to check out the 50 Shades of Grey review, because it sounds fabulous LOL. Also, I love your answer re: Wonderland, and I must admit, I DID choose Hogwarts :D

    Thanks for sharing the review of 50 Shades of Grey! With such an explosion of drooling over this book it’s awesome to find another person who shares my views on it :)

    Nice to meet you :)

    Great post, although I think I would have a panic attack if I were actually in Wonderland. I love Alice but some of that stuff is just freaky.

  8. Hehe. Yay! Nice to meet you! I have a major sweet tooth as well. I was actually, like 10 minutes ago, scrounging the kitchen looking for a yummy treat! Is there anything worse than a late-night sweet craving with no yummies?

  9. Hi! Love your answers! So funny! I have been meaning to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter so your post was very insightful. I am the exact opposite of you in the food department though, I have a sour tooth! Nice to meet you!

  10. Hi Elena! **Waves** I love your sound bite feature here as well! It truly is a great idea! And while I don’t have a crazy sweet tooth, I do like sweets, mainly because I love to bake. For some reason, turning on the radio and baking can make me in a good mood, even when I’ve had a rough day. And cupcakes are probably my FAVORITE thing to bake. There are just so many cute things to do with them! :)

  12. LOL. I love the Fifty Shades review. I just finished up book 2 after feeling I had to read the series before dismissing it after all the hype. I totally agree about that stinking inner goddess or whatever she calls it. It drives me nuts whenever her goddess starts performing ice skating routines. It’s so random. Hope you will stop by my Introduction post.

  16. Hi Elena!!! Isn’t this a lovely blog? So cute!!! It’s fun reading your story, I also have co-bloggers which I talked about books all the time! I see that it was a wise choice to do a book blog :) The sound bite feature seems awesome, might join the fun! If I was given a chance i’d love to be wonderland too <3

    I love the 50 Shades of Grey review, and that "Sound: My own tears?" bit. LOL! I also chose Hogwarts for the last question. :)

    Pam @ jelly loves books

  18. Nice to meet you! Welcome to the wonderful world of book blogging. It is lovely, isn’t it? Yes, that one line from Kendra’s review for “that” book (what I call it) is classic. Sums up why I’m not going to be reading it. I would also love to go to Hogwart’s, but I recently read Alice in Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass and I’m not sure I’d want to go there. Don’t think my head could take it. LOL! But yes, I often wish I was a child again.

    Have you been to Universal Studios in Florida? you know they have Harry Potter World there now! I want to go! we haven’t been since they added Hogwarts. it is a long drive though…

  20. Welcome to the book blogging world!

    Hogwarts! Yep, that would be pretty awesome! Diagon Alley seems like it may be even more adventurous. I’ve always had nightmares after watching Alice in Wonderland, so I’m thinking going there would be a BAD idea!

    I have not ventured over to 50 Shades of Grey, but I’m thinking I have escaped from the literary hell.

  28. It’s nice to meet you! I too have an obsession with Harry Potter and quite the sweet tooth, although mine tends more to the cake and cupcakes side of things rather than ice cream. ( I mean I like ice cream, I just would rather have an awesome cupcake?)

    I’m adding your blog to my list of ones to keep up to date on :-)

  40. Hogwarts would be a very cool place to visit! Great pick. :) And your post on TWWOHP was amazing! Definitely brought back memories … I wish I could visit it every weekend, but the distance between Alberta and Florida is just too far.

    I love how you suggest music for your books! I’m a huge music lover and lover of books, so it’s nice to see the two combined.

    And that’s a great first line for the 50 Shades of Grey review! I have the ebook, but haven’t read it yet … I really think I need to be in a certain mood to get into it. We’ll see!

    Happy reading!

    Hope you stop by my Introduction.

  47. Hi Elena! I love your sound bite posts, too! They always have the best discussions. I think cupcakes are my weakness I love them so much. But…I have to admit that I don’t like ice cream and I even mentioned it in my intro post. Can we still be friends?? :) LOL

    It’s so awesome meeting new bloggers like this and get a proper introduction. ;) Lol, I’m totally with you on the sweet-tooth and I too would LOVE to visit both Hogwarts and Wonderland. Both would be awesome and I love that paragraph about wonderland now too! It definitely would be cool to see the world through the eyes of a child now… Interesting!

    BTW, I love the blog’s tagline “We like to soundtrack YA.” Too cute

  54. Ah, Hogwarts. Definitely a place I’d like to visit. I couldn’t think of a thing when I read that question!!

    I have a sweet tooth, too. It’s a problem. My weaknesses are soft drinks and cake. Not ice cream, though. I really kind of hate ice cream. Is that weird? LOL

  66. RivkaBelle says:

    hahahaha, I LOVE that first line for the 50 Shades review! I’ve read a couple books like that ((or rather: didn’t finish, ;) ))

    I think I eat frozen yogurt the way you eat ice cream: when I hit up the local froyo bar, I typically get 16ish ounces. Most of that actual yogurt/very little weight from the toppings. Yummy! (It boggles my dad’s mind, haha)

    I actually force myself not to have it everyday.


  71. High five! I’m a MAJOR sweet tooth, too! :) I like each 700 calories worth of regular meals a day, and then with the other 1300 calories I’m supposed to have per day, I just spend half of it on sugar! :)

  76. Jen says:

    I am sometimes found eating ice cream and reading a book at the same time. We would get along terrifically!

    It was hard to answer the literary location question. Hogwarts had not even popped into my mind when I answered that question myself. I chose Neverland!

  77. Happy Bea Ladies! Nice visiting with blogs I haven’t heard about before :O)

    Hope to see you around!


  78. I love ice cream too, but it doesn’t love me back. LOL

    Hogwarts is a great choice! :)

  79. I haven’t read Harry Potter but I plan to do so this summer! I also have a super, mega sweet tooth! Nutella<3<3 I'll probably have heart attack from all the sweets I eat xD I also have not read or watched Alice In a Wonderland, do I live in a cave or whaaat?! some day, someday! haha

    Crikey lots of comments:D I’m not a huge fan of icecream unless it is chocolate or rum and raisin , then clear the deck, I am in a happy place:D

  88. Ohhh, Wonderland is a FANTASTIC answer! Holy crap how have I not ever seen that before?! Such a fun land to romp around (as long as you don’t run into evil, I suppose). I love your devotion to ice cream, too – I just made snicker-chip-doodle cookies (part snicker doodle, part choco chip) and have been pondering shoving ice cream between two of them. I just might! Also, I don’t think I’ve ever clicked over to a review so fast after that teaser line from the 50 Shades review haha. So awesome.

    Happy Armchair BEA, and lovely to ‘meet’ you! (I’ve been a follower for awhile, but I’m not sure I’ve ever commented before!)

  90. Danie says:

    Ah! I didn’t even think of Wonderland. Crap!

    Also, can I just say how much I’m loving the review of 50 shades? I bought a copy, got like 30 pages in and just put it back down. I haven’t done that in forever, that’s how bad it was.

    I’m a new follower!

  91. Jasmine Rose says:

    I’m sort of jealous of your sweet tooth. I like sweets just fine, but I’ve never really loved them. Then, two years ago I went to the dentist and found out I had TEN cavities. That’s on top of all the ones from my childhood. Needless to say, now sweets don’t care much for me either :P

    Also, I adore your layout :]
