TL: Besides blogging, what do you like to do for fun?
BS: I love to read and can usually be found with my nose in a book. I also enjoy writing and traveling.
TL: What do you look for when deciding what to review for your blog?
BS: I’m not too picky about what I review, which usually results in being overwhelmed by the stack of books I need to review. I like historical fiction, especially Regency Romance, literary fiction, chick lit, YA, and new adult.
TL: What is your advice for writers who want to be noticed by book bloggers?
BS: Do your research. Don’t blindly email a blogger without spending some time on their site. Get a feel for what they like to read and pitch accordingly.
TL: What are some of the challenges you've encountered as a book blogger and how have you overcome it?
BS: People assuming that just because I’m a book blogger, I’m willing to review whatever lands in my inbox or mailbox. I’m not. I’m involved with tour sites and get quite a few blind pitches each month.
TL: Anything you would like to add?
BS: Be patient. If you send me a book for review, don’t assume it’ll get done tomorrow. I have a massive back log and am really behind. It’s not that reviewing isn’t a priority, it is. It’s just that I have another job and will be returning to school in January. My time is very limited.
