Introducing Ikelia from Confessions of an Obsessed Bookaholic Anomoly

Posted on: November 23, 2013



 Tell us a little about yourself. My name is Ikelia, I’m 29 years old, born in but not raised in Miami, FL. My Dad was in the Navy while I was growing up so my family and I moved around, so whenever I’m asked where I’m from I say “everywhere.” I graduated from Florida A&M University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design and have recently found a job working at a creative agency here in Atlanta, Ga where I currently reside. My favorite genres in books to read are Paranormal (anything), Erotica, Contemporary Romance, and Young Adult/New Adult.

What inspired you/caused you to start your book blog? Well after starting to read heavily I started meeting other book lovers when I discovered Facebook Release events and making friends. I started following Facebook pages suggested by them and then of course sharing on my page all this book related stuff and I think it was slowly irritating my regular friends because I was posting a lot. So then I decided and I think a few people suggested I just make a page for myself to share all my book related stuff. That is when I realized there was a whole world of book bloggers out there. I figured well hell I think I can do this and it will be fun and I will discover more books and at the same time keep my book related stuff at bay with my regular friends and still be able to go crazy on my Facebook page. When my Facebook page started getting a lot of likes that is when I decided to start a website for my book blog and alive came Bookoholic Anom: Confessions of an Obsessed Bookoholic Anomaly

What is your favorite part of running one? Discovering Authors, books and meeting new book people!

What’s your favorite place and time to read? At home in bed at 2am? Out and about at a coffee shop? At home when I get off of work if I don’t have plans or during commercials while I’m catching up on my shows, or in bed at 2 am (literally). There is a sunroom in my apartment and it has a loveseat with a coffee table right next to it and skylights in the ceiling. I can see the entire apartment from there. It also has 3 big windows around it so it’s the perfect place to snuggle up and read when it’s raining or there is a nice breeze outside. Love it!

 Kindle or regular book? How did you feel about the Kindle to book transition? Did you fight it at first or dive right in? Kindle since I got it, but before that it was regular books. The transition was easy for me because I’m somewhat of a techie and love technology. I do miss reading regular books. A friend and I actually go to Barnes and Noble when we are bored or between activities and go smell the pages of books along with feeling the texture of the covers and the pages, and being that we are designers we love to look at all the beautifully designed covers, or critique them (habit). I actually told myself that I should start buying one or two books a week to get my regular book game up and also to start my collection of books. We will see how that goes…

Aside from reading, what else do you do with your time? Or, like me, do things book-related pretty much sum up your life? I’m a huge movie buff, I go to the movies at least once or twice a week and if I’m not going to the movies I’m watching them online or on TV. I love to play pool, I’m not great at it and most of my shots are lucky, but I enjoy it. Going out to eat at new places around Atlanta. I will pretty much be doing anything and everything I can that sounds fun and interesting.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? I would actually want to just go overseas and backpack through as much as I could. I lived in Spain and Japan when I was younger and what I remember of it (which is a lot) and now that I’m older I think I would appreciate being overseas more. There are a lot of beautiful places overseas and I to pick one would just feel like I’m going to miss out on so much. So since I can’t decide on specifically where, I would just like to go overseas and spend a year backpacking through as many beautiful places as I could.

If you could meet any author, who would it be? Ah man I can’t just pick one…Top 5: Lacey Weatherford & Belinda Boring because their books were the first books I read when I first got my Nook Color last year and got me back into the swing of things after Twilight and The Sookie Stackhouse Series; Charlaine Harris ( I absolutely love the Southern Vampire series), Quinn Loftis (The Grey Wolves series is brilliant and same goes for her with getting me back into the game), Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, I love with all my heart, just as detailed as Harry Potter), and JK Rowling because I believe she would be as fun to talk to as her imagination is.  Okay and I have to say a number 6 because I can’t help myself: Abbi Glines because the Never Too Far series is just awesome.

If you could go on a date with any fictional male character, who would it be, from what book? River Wilde from Connected by Kim Karr – he was the first character to pop in my head because honestly there are a lot of them I would go on a date with.

Is there a fiction genre you just can’t seem to stand or get into? For me, heavy science fiction is just a no-go. Yea I would have to agree with you there. I’m not really into heavy science fiction either, and I’m not a huge fan of dystonia unless there is some kind of romance involved through out either, but if there is none of that I can’t do it. I’m a hopeless romantic so I have to have some kind of romance in any of the books I read.

 Were you The Quiet Girl Who Was Always Reading, or did you mainly just read at home in secret? I mainly just read at home, but it was never a secret. It just happened to be during the times that I wasn’t out with my friends or it was a book assignment and the book was actually one I cared to read.

avorite book to movie adaption?

The Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling! I think it came the closest ever to the books that any adaption that I have seen, even though I only read the last two books of the series. Lol

Guardian Blurb

Lyla Evans just wants to be left alone; to fly under the radar and not attract attention. After seventeen years, she knows how the game is played. Her parents are hardly ever home, and when they do show up, they’re quick to anger and even quicker with their fists. With foster care comes the threat of being separated from her two younger siblings, and Lyla would die before allowing that to happen. She’s learned to keep her head down and depend on no one but herself and God to get by.

When a strange man starts paying too much attention to her and her siblings, showing up to rescue them and then disappearing without a trace, Lyla begins to panic that everything she’s been hiding is about to come out. But as she slowly becomes friends with Rafael and even trusts him with her deepest fears, Lyla learns he has secrets far bigger than her own that will turn everything in her world upside down.

In this story of abuse and rescue, love and faith, angels and demons, an unlikely friendship grows into a fantastical love story appealing and appropriate for readers young and old alike.
