Blogger Spotlight Tour: Living for the Books

Feature a blogger, and a blogger will feature you. The Blogger Spotlight Tour is run by Justine from The Closet Library and Jazmen from This Girl Reads A Lot.

Today I get to feature the amazing Erika from Living for the Books! Make sure to check her out!

Erika is just a normal 16 year old who just happens to love reading and blogging, especially when the two are together. She started blogging in July 2012 and hasn't stopped since. Now, 2 years later, she has over 300 followers and continues to love reading just as much as she did 2 years ago. Make sure you guys go over to take a look, and maybe even follow!

Come back afterwards to read the interview!

1. What book made you love reading and made reading your passion?
It's hard to say. I read on and off as a kid and I don't remember all the books I've read. I was either Maximum Ride or Twilight that got me into reading. I'm not a fan of those books anymore, but when I was younger (like sixth grade) I loved those books.

2. What made you decide to start blogging? What's your favorite thing about blogging?
I wanted to start a blog so that I could share my reviews with people outside of Goodreads and I thought I would be fun. I love visiting other people's blogs and making new blogging friends.

3. Do you have any blogging regrets? Anything you would do differently?
I wish I had reached out to more people when I first started blogging.

4. I'm a 15 year old newbie blogger and need help with this, how do you balance school, blogging, other activities etc.?
Oh man, I'm still trying to figure this out. I've recently become addicted to TV shows and I'm in my junior year of high school so I find it difficult to manage my blog. I try to keep a schedule for my blog and tell myself that I should try to get at least one review up a week. I need to give myself specific dates for things otherwise I just won't do them. This might make blogging feel like an obligation for some people, but I think it makes it easier for me because I like being able to plan ahead and right now I still think it's fun.

5. What's your favorite genre to read and why?
I love Fantasy books because it allows me to escape from reality for awhile and I love reading about other worlds.

6. What are your top 3 favorite book covers?
I love the covers for Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake, Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor, and The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater.

7. What fictional would would you want to live in?
I'd love to live in Harry Potter world. Who wouldn't want to go to Hogwarts?

8. Do you have any book boyfriends?
Of course I do! I'm currently in love with way too many to list here but my favorites are Zeke from The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa, Will from The Infernal Devices, and Augustus from The Fault in Our Stars.

9. Who are some of your favorite authors?
I love Julie Kagawa, John Green, and Maggie Stiefvater.

10. Top 5 favorite celebrities (from movies, TV Shows, models etc).
Don't make me do that! Um I'd have to say Misha Collins, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jennifer Lawrence.

11. Top 5 favorite TV Shows/Movies.
Supernatural, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Merlin, and Once Upon A Time.

12. Top 5 favorite things to do when not blogging/reading?

Hang out with friends, cry over fictional characters...I mean watch TV shows, go horseback riding, go on Tumblr (it's an addiction), and write.

Make sure you stalk this lovely lady....or you know just hang out with her. You can do that all those tools here!
