Armchair BEA Day 1

Monday, May 26, 2014
Hi everyone! Welcome to day one of Armchair BEA! Today I'll introduce myself, and then we'll talk about my current favorite books by genre. Let's get started!


  1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from? 
Hi! I'm Saru. I'm a teenage girl in the USA, for whom books are an escape from reality. I also love Netflix, Tumblr, Goodreads, YouTube, Marvel superheroes, and ice cream. I'm pretty typical. I've been blogging for about a year and four months. I got into blogging simply because combining my love of reading and writing seemed like an awesome idea, which it totally was!
  1. Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online. 
If I had to describe my blog in one sentence it would be: A home for avid readers full of gifs, quite a bit of fangirling, and inconsistent posting. 

As far as social media goes, I'm not on a lot of places, but...
This here is my blog, obviously.
  1. What was your favorite book read last year? What’s your favorite book so far this year? 
My favorite book from last year was probably City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. I read the whole Mortal Instruments series last year, and they were the best books I had read in quite a while, and the 5th book was my favorite. My favorite book so far this year? Man, that's SO tough. I guess if I had to choose I'd go with... The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. SO. GOOD. 
  1. What does your favorite/ideal reading space look like? (Pinterest encouraged!) 
Like this:

  1. Spread the love by naming your favorite blogs/bloggers (doesn’t necessarily have to be book blogs/bloggers). 
Oh man, there are so many...

The Perpetual Page-Turner
Novel Sounds
Artsy Musings of a Bibliophile
Broke and Bookish
Finding Bliss in Books

To name a few.

Next, my favorite books by genre! I'll only be judging based on books read this year.

Sci-fi: The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, as mentioned above.

Fantasy: The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. Hah, another Rick!

Realistic Fiction:
Paper Towns by John Green. That man and his books... I can't even.

 Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare. Spoiler alert:  They both die.

Nonfiction: Night by Elie Wiesel. Man, that was heavy.

I'll see you all tomorrow with a much less rushed post. :)

I love the idea of making a closet a nook. Now I just need to empty a closet out. :D

I know right? It's very clever. :)

Hi Saru! Night was the only nonfiction book I ever enjoyed. Well, it feels odd to say I enjoyed it. What a coincidence, though, I read it years ago and it happened to pop into my mind just today before I read this.

That book nook looks so inviting! I've read neither Yancey nor Clare, but both are on my TBR list. Maybe I'll see if the library has either of them when I'm there next week.

I loved City of Bones but haven't read on... I really should! :-)
Great meeting you!
