Today for Armchair BEA, I have the privilege of interviewing Melina of the blog Reading Vacation. You should really take a look at her blog after reading the interview; it looks as if she has a long and fruitful blogging career ahead of her and lots of good books to recommend.
How did you start blogging? You have a lovely blog. How did you get it started and set up? Why?
I started writing book reviews on Glogster last September as part of a school project.I had such a good time, that I started my blog this March. Since I read so much, I thought a blog would be a creative way to share my love of reading with others.
Who are your favorite authors?
Scott Westerfeld, Julie Kagawa, Stephenie Meyer, Ally Carter, Rick Riordan, and so many more.
Have you always enjoyed reading?
What’s the first book you ever remember reading for yourself? What did you think about it?
I remember reading the ENTIRE Rainbow Fairy series by Daisy Meadows. My mom bought them online from England.
I think those books played a big part in spurring my love of reading.
Did your parents read to you a lot when you were younger? If so, what books do you remember reading aloud with them?
Yes. They read a lot of fairy tales to me. Every day and every night.
My daughter Bethany is eleven. What one book do you suggest to her as a “can’t miss it” book?
I can’t name just one. Have Bethany check out my blog for ideas to see what may interest her.
