Second year joining Armchair BEA!!
And hi there!
I'm Alba and as you can see I'm the owner of BookPics :D
Now for the beginning of the armchair we were asked to pick, out of several, 5 questions to answer to you today so you can find out more about us and our blogs while you're roaming the blogosphere in this week of awesomeness.
So WELCOME to BookPics and hope you get to enjoy it here :D
1.Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
And why did I get into blogging? About books specially? Well, because I love love loooooove books. Books have been a huge and when I say huge I mean HUGE part of my life since like forever ^_^ and apparently my friends aren't as big on reading as I was/am/will forever be...
I needed an outlet, needed to share this passion of mine with someone who would understand, someone who would share my love of books and their authors, someone who "got" me. And who would be willing to marry a fictional character even if said fictional character was also married to me ;)
But woah! This community gave me that but so much more and for that I'll be forever grateful.
You see this -pats this tiny but beautiful to me- blog? It's one of the things I'm the most proud of and I have loved every second of it ever since I started. -smiles proudly-
Is this a trick question? LOL :D
I'm from a tiny country located in Central America :) called El Salvador.
We're one of the tiniest countries in the whole world and... something special about our current location?
Ummm well... Not only is our country little and tiny but so is our people :D
We get 6 months of summer and 6 of winter.
Oh, and books don't come here... :(
But if you're really curious hehe I have a whole page dedicated to my country full with pretty pictures so you can get the whole idea of us :D -It's located on the tabs but here's a LINK if you rather just click it.
I'm currently reading 2 books,
Gold by Talia Vance and
Hard Bitten by Chloe Neill.
X______X Both are already favorite of mine and I won't even start on how Hard Bitten is killing me while I write this... Just remembering ----shudders----
OH.MY.CLOUDS.IN.THE.HEAVENS!!!!!!! You did NOT just ask me that!!
One of my favorite reads so far this year has GOT to be
-The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa.
Because that book was simply perfection incarnate...
But, but, but!!!!

Nope, I won't even...

Jesus christ in the clouds!
I've got too many!!
But here they are -in no order whatsoever-
**Fiktshun which is run by Rachel... O_O
-the only blog I stalk daily... - There's a reason why I've declared myself her #1stalker. Right?
I actually first found out about Armchair BEA on her blog. The very first time I stopped by her blog it was for an Armchair BEA post.
But, for me, she is one of the best book bloggers out there. She's amazing not only as a blogger but as a person and I'm so very glad I met her.
I love her reviews, she has a way with words that I have yet to see in another blog. And every single time I read one of her book reviews it's a given that I've got to get that book. No matter what.
Plus, she's completely passionate about the authors. I love how much she supports them!
She's incredibly generous and talented and really? I just look up to her.
She's got tons of sites so I'll leave you with the links to some of them:
Fiktshun -Main Blog-
I've been a follower of April for over a year now but it wasn't until a few months ago that I really started stalking her.
Then along came Pabkins and you've got the best "duo" ran blog out there.
They complement each other in the blog so well!
And they've made me like and read both their reviews, which is kind of hard since I rarely read book reviews that aren't by Fiktshun. And it's very seldom seldom seldom that I follow blogs that are run by more than one person. But not theirs.
Both are so much fun to talk with and I'm forever grateful that they don't ignore me.
They interact a LOT on their posts' comments section and also on twitter :D
You should pay them a visit. They're amazing!
Oh boy, I've known Jean since before she became the totally and completely successful blogger she has become.
She's incredible! It's amazing how generous she is to the community and how willing she is to help and promote authors.
I have no other words to describe her. She's a friend and a person who is always willing to have a bookish chat.
I love love loooove Jean!
Oh my!!!!!! Mindy!!! What would I do without her???
I loooooooove her blog.
Whenever I need to find out about Urban Fantasy reads or awesome YA novels I know I must stop by her blog.
I met Mindy thanks to Fiktshun. And how THANKFUL I am for that!
Her blog and her way of blogging is fresh and stress-free <-I made that up.
But you see, the fact that she doesn't post daily and does it at her own pace. Feeling no need to fill up the days with posts and more posts? I love that!
I love stopping by whenever she has a new post on her blog, no matter what. I'm always there.
Mindy is simply amazing and I'm so very very grateful I got to meet her!
Those are some but I've got so many more blogs I follow. You should scroll down on the right sidebar and you'll see more of my fave blogs :D
So there you have it!
5 questions answered to let you know a bit more about my freaky and book/photography-lover persona.
Hope you have a great time stalking, I mean, following my quest called Armchair BEA 2013.
Are you participating?
Leave a link! I'm always happy and excited to meet new bookish people!
