ArmchairBEA: Intro

It's time yet again for another Armchair BEA! How do the years fly by so fast? Sheesh. I kinda wish that some year I'll be reporting from the actual event, but by the time I can actually go I wonder if I'll even care anymore! I guess we'll see!

In the meantime, I'll play along from the armchair! Here are my intro questions for the day!


1. What is the name you prefer to use?

SUEY! Yeah. I know. It's weird. But so am I. And so it works.

2. How long have you been a book blogger?

In March I crossed over to the nine year point, meaning I'm now working on my tenth year. Freaky.

3. Have you participated in ABEA before?

Yeah, since the beginning!


1. Do you have a favorite book? If you cannot choose a favorite book of all time, pick your favorite book today - just this second. Remember that favorites are allowed to change if something affects you deeply enough.

I always say The Book Thief when faced with this ever impossible question. Because... you kno... The Book Thief.

2. What is your favorite genre and why?

Ah guys. I don't have a favorite! They are all my favorites! I'm especially fond of fantasy, science fiction, YA contemporary, and historical fiction, though I never seem to get to that one these days. Oh wait... why? Why...because... they are awesome! I love to escape, to read about new worlds, to see the amazing imagination of authors... and to learn about history. Oh, and all the angst and stuff of YA contemporary makes me happy for some strange crazy reason.

5. If you could create a playlist that reflects your bookshelf, what would be the first song you choose? (You can include more than one if you want :D)

This one for the space/science fiction stuff I've been loving lately: Louder Than Words
This one for the romance stories that are my most favorite: Neverland
This one for all the local authors on my shelf: Warriors

(P.S. Did you notice? I included no kpop. Just in case you didn't notice.)

6. How do you arrange your bookshelves? Is there a rhyme or reason? Or not at all? (#ABEAShelfie)

No rhyme. Or reason. The downstairs shelves attempted it once, but have been since messed up. Mostly it's classics in a spot, regular fiction in a spot, and lots of hardback signed books in spot. Picture books and MG have a spot too. I have award winners sort of on a shelf of their own too. Sort of. Mostly it's a mess.

9. If you could choose three characters to have lunch with, who would they be and why? 

I think I'd love to hangout with the couples from the Starbound Trilogy: Tarver and Lilac, Flynn and Jubilee, and Gideon and Sofia. Yeah. That would be fun. (P.S. I cheated, yes? I always do!)

Have a great Armchair BEA everyone! I'll see you out there!


  1. The Book Thief made me ugly cry so much. And no kpop!!!! I look forward to your kpop songs.

  2. what! no kpop?
    Happy 10 years Suey ~ so glad you're in the book blogging world!

  3. Love your song choices! I hadn't ever heard the Louder Than Words song -- heading over to Spotify to download it now.

  4. It totally slipped my mind to do ArmchairBEA this year. Of course, I am failing--yet again--at managing the end of the school year, that I don't know if I'd actually be able to pull it off. Sigh!

  5. I wasn't sure you'd participate this year. One of these days maybe you will go to the real thing. If you do, take me with you!

    1. Jenny: I'm thinking not next year, but the next. Mark it down! Let's do it! :)

    2. 2018? I want to come with you guys! We can share a hotel room and save expenses.

  6. Wow! You included no KPop. I'm surprised. I didn't think this was possible these days, lol.

  7. Wow. Ten years! Congrats. That's an awesome milestone. :)

  8. I will have to check out those songs!
