2015 Book Blogger Love-a-Thon: A Little Bit About Me!

Good morning! I’m late, lol. But I’m here and I’m ready to mingle! So here we go…

 

What’s your name?

Jess

 

Where in the world are you blogging from?

Texas

 

How did you get into blogging in the first place?

I got into blogging after reading Twilight and The Mortal Instruments and following the fandoms. I started following some of them on Twitter, then they led me to book blogs. I think one of the first blogs I found was Mundie Moms and Cari’s Book Blog. Then I created my own!

 

How did you come up with your blog name?

When I first set it up, my blog was called Read? Don’t Mind If I Do! – but then I realized I wanted something more brand-ish. I took suggestions from my readers and then did a poll! Gone with the Words won! Bit of trivia: the name was actually a suggestion from this blog’s very own Lety!

 

What genre do you read and review the most on your blog?

While we review pretty much everything, the most is Young Adult books and Adult Contemporary Romance.

 

What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews?

Memes wise: Top Ten Tuesday. As far as Features, we have THURSDAY TRACKS, where I share songs, and we just started BITSY WORDS, our version of mini-reviews.

 

Best blogging experience so far?

By far it is getting to travel for book events with friends and meeting online friends in person.

 

Favorite thing about the blogging community?

All the friendships that have come and will come from it.

 

Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2015!

 

What’s an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read?

 

Which book boy or girl would be your book BFF?

Having recently watched The Duff movie, my number one choice would be Bianca!

 

Apart from reading, what are your other hobbies or interests?

Nope. Reading is my only hobby.

 

Apart from book shopping, what else do you like shopping for?

Make-up and skincare products!!

 

At a party, the DJ suddenly changes the song – and it’s your song. What song would be playing?

If you want to see me get jiggy, there’s a song that will do that, so I’m going old school for this one…

 

Pick out either a book you want turned into a film/TV show, or a film/TV show you want turned into a book.

If The Mortal Instruments REALLY does become a tv show, I’d love for The Infernal Devices to follow suit because WILL HERONDALE.

    Loved reading more about you here! xoxo I reeeealllly need to read The Duff and I’m really wanting to see the movie. Should I go in blind to see the movie first?

    LOL~those GIFs are great! YES, Saint Anything!! I love Sarah Dessen. :)
    I hope the Mortal Instruments does become a TV show. I didn’t really like the movie that much, but maybe a show would be better?

    Oh my goodness! I have just fallen deeply in love with you beautiful blog! Also, A+ use of gifs. I just saw The DUFF too and I loved Bianca! I haven’t read the book just yet but I heard it’s different so I’m excited to dive in later this week once I finish The Sky is Everywhere! Nice to meet you Jess!

    This is an awesome post! I read the first two books (or three?) of the Violet Eden Chapters, and I have the next book to read. It’s definitely a series I haven’t heard much about, either. I haven’t seen The Duff yet, but I really want to! I actually just finished the book recently because I was so excited to see what it was about. I can’t wait to go see the movie!

    OMG! Hey Ya! I used to dance like crazy in the car when that song came on! I still remember riding with my mom somewhere and she thought I had lost it. LOL. Love it! I am so excited for Six of Crows, The Devil You Know, and Jesse’s Girl! I’ve been meaning to read Shirvington’s series for awhile now, so I’m glad you’re giving it some props!

    I do a Music Monday feature so I’m excited to check out your Thursday Tracks! I love all things music. And yay for finding another blog that does multi genre!

    I like that you used a poll to decide your blog name. Seems like the best method when you can’t figure it out :D The friendships are definitely the best part about the community; the fangirling with like-minded people is amazing.
