Hello fellow Beautiful People & Armchair BEA online attendees. Because I was unable to attend the full BEA in person this year I am participating in this event. My name's Katrina and I've been blogging since 2011. It really doesn't seem like that long and it took me looking back at my archives to confirm. I originally go into blogging as a means to compile online images for my fashion inspiration boards. That lead to me blogging about my fashion projects, then what I was doing when I wasn't sewing (which was reading), and so forth.
I'm blogging just 3 scant hours south of New York. It's a shame really how close I am and I've never been to the Big Apple. My current location is known as "The City That Reads"!
My first time hearing about Armchair BEA was last year. While I commented on the site, I didn't interact via posts of my own. This year I'm interested in participating in Armchair BEA as well as actually attending BEA. Unfortunately this is the busiest time of the year for me with fashion assignments. I do however plan to drag my dear friend with me to attend the last day as a "Power Reader".
I'm currently dragging my feet reading Uprising by Jessica Therrien. This is the long awaited sequel to Oppression, and I couldn't be more excited to get my hands on an ARC copy. Too bad, my current work load isn't allowing for much leisure time. My favorite
One non-book-related thing that everyone reading my blog may not know about me is I'm a military veteran. Yep, I look young for my age. I get that a lot.
"Favorite" is a strong word. While I enjoy visiting a number of blogs when I have the time, there's two that I'm subscribed to via email that I don't mind getting the updates. Actually I look forward to their updates. So I guess they would classify as a "favorite".
Those two are ...
One of my posts that would like everyone to read is
If I could eat dinner with any author it would be Andrew Fukuda and the character would be Gene. I read The Hunt two months ago and I have so many questions about the setting. I'm going to try not to spoil it for those who have yet to read this but
I could go on and on. Don't get me wrong, I loved the book and plan to check out the sequel "The Prey". I just have so many questions, it's driving me nuts even months after finishing the book.
My favorite part about the book blogging community is meeting new people who love to read. I don't feel isolated or alone when I talk fiction jargon to my book bloggish friends
One thing I would like to see change in the coming years is more peace. I know that's a far fetched wish, but if more people read they would be much happier.
I'm not going to be able to participate in the ArmchairBEA Instagram Challenge. Instagram doesn't support my android phone. But I plan to be at the twitter party! Join me: May: 30th at 8am PST 31st at 3pm PST June: 1st at 11pm PST!

Armchair BEA: Introduction

Labels: Armchair BEA 2013
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.
