Our Feature is blogger Kristin @ Book Sniffers Anonymous

When did you start blogging?
I started June 2011.
What is your favorite part of blogging?
Meeting all the new and awesome people to be honest. I would have never in a million years have thought that I would be able to talk with authors. I’m not going to lie, a big perk is getting to read books for free, especially ones that haven’t come out yet but for me it’s awesome to walk through a book store and say “Oh, she’s really sweet.” “He’s hilarious! By far one of the coolest people out there.” and then the occasional “That author’s such a bitch. They’re the one I was telling you about that blew up at that chick over her review.”
What type of books do you mainly blog about?
I’m a romance junkie, which is funny since I used to make fun of those Fabio book covers when I was younger. Okay… so maybe I still do. I tend to find romance in all stories, for example, Han Solo & Princess Leia, Peter Parker & Mary Jane and Simba & Nala. So thankfully, I can read a wide variety of books and as long as there is a potential love interest, I’m all in. However, I always give authors of all genres a chance to spread the news about their books on my site. So even though I may review YA, NA, PNR, UF etc… you will still see some other genres pop up. After all, I feel like my “job” is to share books and even though they may not be books that I’d generally read, it doesn’t mean that someone else out there wouldn’t be interested in them.
What is your favorite book(s)?
My favorite series is hands down, Vampire Academy. The ironic part about that though is that I fought my friend when she urged me to read it. I really didn’t want to read yet another vampire book. She persisted, bought the book for my birthday and not even halfway through the book I was ordering the rest of the series online.
What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?
I suppose I could say that it saved my sanity. My husband’s in the Marine Corp, so we move around quite a bit and it’s not easy forging new friendships in a new area every couple of years. So for a while there, I was on the verge of making friends with the mailman just so that I had someone to talk to. Now, between my day job at the National Park where I talk all day to visitors and then coming home and typing up reviews/posts and chatting with everyone online, I’m officially all talked out by the end of the day. And as it turns out, even though I am not inviting the mailman in for tea and cookies, both he and the UPS man know me by name and flag me down if I drive by them when they have packages on their truck for me. I guess I order too much stuff online icon razz Feature & Follow #142

This weeks Question:

Q: Tell us about the most emotional scene you’ve ever read in a book – and how did you react?

I loved the Demon's Lexicon.  There were several good scenes that made me feel a variety of emotions, but I think the best part is the end.  It has a surprise that was both sad and beautiful.

This is a Blog Hop!
