What inspired you/caused you to start your book blog?

Simple. Books. I want to share everything I read and love with others! 🙂

What is your favorite part of running one? The people I meet who in turn become someone I can call friend. I love interacting with everyone who has the same interest as me: books!!! When I ask “what are you reading today?” I REALLY want to know! I’m really interested in what people find interesting! Lol

What’s your favorite place and time to read? At home in bed at 2am? Out and about at a coffee shop? In my bed snuggled under my blankets. Or on my couch snuggled under a throw. Accompanied with my two furbabies! I love to read snuggled with my dogs! ❤

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! Funny thing is I was so mad at it! I was like who would put their precious paperbacks down to read off a hard electronic thing!!! Lol now I can’t live without it!! I can carry every darn book I have ever loved with me! Who doesn’t want that!?

Favorite book of all time? Where the Red Fern Grows and The Secret Garden!!!! All time faves from when I was a kid! The Secret Garden was the first book that have me my love of reading! Then came Where the Red Fern Grows! From there I was hooked! 🙂

Coolest author you ever got to meet/work with? What’s up with all these hard questions!! Hahaha I have to say just about every author I ever had the pleasure of working with I have loved! So for that list you can head to my blog! Lol they’re all there with every book I’ve ever shared! ❤  

Tell us about the woman (women) behind the mask? Err blog! I’m just a simple girl that loves to read and share reading with others. 🙂  

Do you prefer a bunch of quick, sweet stand-alone reads or a long drawn out series of epic proportions? Depends on my moods! I can do anything! Sometimes I want a quick book that won’t keep me up through the night and other times I want a long drawn out saga! 🙂  

Last book you read and how did you rate it? I recently reread Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls! It is one of my favorite childhood books and I still have the original copy given to me when I was a kid. So I popped it open and read it with my daughter! She loved it too!  

Aside from reading, what else do you do with your time? Or, like me, do things book-related pretty much sum up your life? Pretty much book related, but I love to craft! I make jewelry, sew, and just create! 🙂  

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? Australia, Ireland! Oh and Italy! They all just look so beautiful and their landscapes remind me of the places I go to in my head when reading a book. 🙂

 If you could meet any author, who would it be? Do we have time for the 100+ on my list?  

If you could go on a date with any fictional male character, who would it be, from what book? Devlin! From Author Belinda Boring’s The Mystic Wolves series! That vampire is sexy!!!

Who is a female character you could see yourself being best friends with? Another hard one!! There are so many characters that have been created by so many authors. I couldn’t just pick one!

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. Westerns. Can’t do them. Don’t even try. :/  

When I say favorite book cover, what’s the first one to come to mind – since I know there probably can’t be just one? Oooooh hard one!! Okay first to come to mind though was A Shade of a Vampire by Bella Forrest. I read it recently so it’s probably the reason!!! I love the cover!!

What was the series in childhood that got you hooked on reading? For me, my mom forced me to read Little House on the Prairie for school which I ended up loving, and then I found the Redwall series and I just never stopped! I can remember The boxcar kids series!!! And then when I grew a bit older BC Andrews books!!! Still love to see them in the bookstores! Brings a smile to my face!  

Were you The Quiet Girl Who Was Always Reading, or did you mainly just read at home in secret? I always read. I’ve always been the girl surrounded by books! 🙂

Do you always read several books at once, or just stick to one at a time? The running joke in my family when I was young was asking me how many books I was reading (usually at least five) and laughing when I could recite the plot for every single one! It depends on my mood! Sometimes I can read up to five some days my life is too busy and can fit just one! 🙂  

Favorite book to movie adaption? Hands down ‘The Notebook’ by Nicholas Sparks! Love, love, love that movie and book!!!

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.
