I've branched outside of just book blogging in various forms. I have a segment, entitled Dreamheart Spotlight, for artist where I spotlight models, photographers, musicians, etc. I have a segment, entitled Just Chic Enough, where I invite fashion bloggers to dish beauty and fashion advice. I also have a multi author/blogger event August 2013 entitled, Novel Fashion Week.
I've been featured on two fellow bloggers sites. I've also signed up for reading challenges, but I'm absolutely terrible at keeping up with those year long meme's.
I'm currently working on launching a offline book club in Baltimore. If you live in the area, join us on the GoodReads group as we plan for our first meeting.
I'm in a few affiliate programs, but I haven't seen any significant results from them.
I've grown in some aspects and backslid in other areas since I started my blog. I've begun to include more fashion topics and I've even branched out to the athletic blog community in my new healthy living initiative. Yet, I've noticed I have to force myself to write a review when a novel falls at or below a 3 rating. I'm a Southern Belle. I've been taught that if you don't have something nice to say then don't say them at all. At the same time, I feel compelled to warn people. Just like in real life, I eventually find a way to convey my feelings in a matter as not to crush the hopes and dreams of others.....It just take a little longer. I'm currently playing catch up on a few reviews, so look out!
As far as genre fiction, I'm drawn to anything that's a perfect distraction. I think there's enough trauma on the news and drama in the world. So I tend to flock to light supernatural and HEA's (Happy Ever After). I love romance but I also like action. If there's balance of the two, then I'm a happy camper.
Here's a few adult and YA novels that met my standard:

I'm Katrina, founder of Kindred Dreamheart. I'm an aspiring celebrity "red carpet" clothing designer and book lover. I read select genres. However if it's a series I'm sure I'd love it also regardless of the genre. I read when I want to be entertained; watch TV when I'm bored; and when I'm not designing something fabulous, I blog.
