2015 Book Blogger Love-a-Thon Questionnaire Post

Posted by The YA Book Traveler , Saturday, February 21, 2015 9:00 AM

The 2015 Book Bloggers Love-A-Thon hosted by Alexa Loves Book is a time for the blogging community to show some book love to authors and to fellow bloggers. This is my first one! Find out more info about his event here.


1. What’s your name? My name is Sarah (like half of the blogging community!)

2. Where in the world are you blogging from? I am blogging from COLD COLD Michigan.

3. How did you get into blogging in the first place? Twitter. I really got into reading over the last couple of years and wanted to be able to join the amazing book community where I can flail about books.

4. How did you come up with your blog name? It's pretty straight forward. I was deciding on a name and all I could think about was that reading takes you on an adventure. So, The YA Book Traveler was born!

5. What genre do you read and review the most on your blog? I read and review mostly fantasy and dystopian. There are an occasional contemporary or NA in there as well.

6. What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews? I'm new to blogging and have very limited time to do it. I've done a few Top Ten Tuesdays and a Stacking the Shelves.

7. Best blogging experience so far? I would say meeting other bloggers. They're SOOOO wonderful!

8. Favorite thing about the blogging community? To be honest, I probably tweet my Twitter blogging community more than I do real life friends. I love books and this is the place where we can be excited together. Everyone is so amazing and sweet.

9. Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2015! The Orphan Queen, ACOTAR, Ice Like Fire, The Wrath and the Dawn, and An Ember in Ashes. (Only 5??? There are so many more)

10. What’s an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read? I love Starters by Lissa Price. It's a great duology. I'm not sure if it qualifies as underrated but I love it.

11. Which book boy or girl would be your book BFF? Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke and Bone or Roar from Under the Never Sky! They're both so fun!

12. Apart from reading, what are your other hobbies or interests? I work for my church and I love leading children's ministry. It's super fun and I love my church family.

13. Apart from book shopping, what else do you like shopping for? I'm a mom of 3, I never get to go shopping! lol  Um...clothes?

14.At a party, the DJ suddenly changes the song – and it’s your song. What song 

would be playing? I'm actually at a loss on this one...sad!

15.Pick out either a book you want turned into a film/TV show, or a film/TV 

show you want turned into a book. I WANT FROSTBITE! (cries). I was so sad the Vampire Academy movies won't keep being made...

Thanks for stopping by and join all the fun on Twitter, #LoveAThon

Hi Sarah!*waves*Nice to meet you:)
I didn't know that Frostbite was not going to be made into a movie!Why did this happen?I was looking forward to see Adrian:(
*joins you in the crying*

Here's my introductory post

The YA Book Traveler Says:

Vampire Academy didn't do well in the box office. 😭 They tried raising money for Frostbite but didn't raise enough. I've heard rumors though that maybe it'll still happen!

Pili Says:

Sarah!! Buenos días!! *waves*
I love your blog name! It has a sense of adventure to it, doesn't it? And that's what books do indeed!
I agree, I spend so much time on Twitter, but I have no shame on it, I love chatting with books with my bloggy friends!
Zuze!! You are right, she'll make the most amazing bff everr!!

WhatSarah Read Says:

SARAH...what a great name! ;-) It's been great getting to know you recently and I love that we have so many anticipated books in common! Hope you're having a great Love-a-Thon already! See you around! {hugs}

The YA Book Traveler Says:

Definitely no Twitter shame, I love meeting and talking with everyone! 😄

The YA Book Traveler Says:

Thanks for stopping by fellow Sarah! 😄 It's been great getting to know you too!

Erin Says:

Hi, Sarah. I never realized until you mentioned it, but there are a lot of Sarahs in the book blogging world.

I also use Twitter to talk to my book blogging friends more than my real ones. It seems like someone is always online. lol

Stay warm! :)

The YA Book Traveler Says:

Yes there are A LOT! Ha.

You're totally right, someone is always on Twitter to chat with!

Anonymous Says:

Aw I love Roar! He was such a good best friend to both Aria and Perry!

Hazel U Says:

Hi Sarah! I'm excited for ACOTAR too! And I think it's lovely you lead children's ministry and are close with your church family! Also, I so need to start Starters already. :D

The YA Book Traveler Says:

I love Starters! ❤️

Thank you, I have an amazing supportive church family!

Rachel Lampi Says:

Hi, Sarah -- I'm so excited to find someone else who's doing ministry alongside book blogging -- I'm a part-time intern for my campus Wesley Foundation! (And I have a sister named Sarah!)

I'm excited for ACOTAR too, but I haven't read past the first TOG book. It's kind of shameful.

Great post!

Lovin Libros Says:

I'm right there with you girl! I talk to my Twitter blogging friends more than I do my real life friends! Haha. Roar would definitely be one of my BFF's. He was such a great friend to both Perry and Aria! I also love the name of your blog!

The YA Book Traveler Says:

Woo yay!!! I'm glad to hear that. 😄

Yes you need to keep reading ToG, Crown of Midnight is amaaaaaazing!!! ❤️❤️❤️

The YA Book Traveler Says:

Thank you! I love your blog name too!!

Yes Roar is the best!! So funny and totally loyal, and hot! lol

Alexa S. Says:

Ah! I love your list of 5 reads you're anticipating, because I'm totally anticipating them with you. (Except for Orphan Queen, because I was lucky enough to read it already! So good!). And being buddies with Zuzana or Roar would be pretty awesome :)

Thanks for joining the Love-a-Thon!

The YA Book Traveler Says:

Thank you for hosting! It's been super fun!
