About Alexia of Adventures in Reading
"I'm a 28 year old blogger and writer. I have been blogging at Adventures in Reading for just about a year. My book blog covers a wide array of genres, both YA and Adult titles. I am currently working on a couple of writing projects and am hoping to have at least one of them published by the end of the year."
Emma: What would you say is your favorite part of the book blogging community?
The friends that I have made this past year. None of it would have been possible without blogging.
Emma: What's your favorite YA subgenre?
Emma: What's your favorite book within that genre?
Currently it's The Distance Between Us by Kasie West
Emma: Signature question time: What's your favorite fairytale?
Beauty and the Beast. I just love how Belle was able to look past the way the Beast looked and focus on what was really important.
Emma: What has been the best moment of your blogging career?
Ooooh, toughie, I gotta go with being auto-approved for HarperTeen's titles on Edelweiss.
Emma: What do you see as the next big trend in YA (like vampires, dystopian, mermaids, angels, etc.)?
Definitely mermaids. There seems to be a lot more mermaid related books coming out recently.
Emma: What's the YA trope that irritates you the most and why?
Insta-love because it's not realistic. There is no such thing as insta-love. Insta-lust, yes, but not insta-love. Love just doesn't work like that.
Emma: Any upcoming books you're highly anticipating?
Bleed Like Me by Christa Desir. It's a "dark" contemporary which I absolutely love.
Feral by Holly Schindler. Another "dark contemporary that I'm excited for.
Don't Touch by Rachel M. Wilson. Yes a third "dark" contemporary that I'm really excited about (sensing a theme here Emma?)
