BBAW Interview: Brittanie from A Book Lover

Time for a BBAW Interview! I was paired up with Brittanie from A Book Lover. She is a challenge addict (sound familiar?) and especially loves Christian fiction. According to her profile, she also likes cats, pens, windy trees, baking and family. Great list! We also have in common our love of Jane Austen.

Here are the questions I had for her. Check out her blog for the questions she asked me (and man, some were HARD!)

1. What motivated you to start a book blog and what keeps you going at it?

I had a Xanga blog first and used it mostly to blog about my life but I loved books and reading. As I visited more blogs I saw the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and joined. I had just graduated with my BS and actually had more time to read. Posting reviews with the CFBA got me started sharing about the books I read and it grew from there. I switched to a Google blog for easier updating etc.

2. What are some of the favorite books you've read and blogged about so far this year?

Breach of Trust by Diann Mills
Miss Match by Sara Mills
The Moment Between by Nicole Baart
Stealing Home by Allison Pittman
Eye for an Eye by Irene Hannon
Just Between You and Me by Jenny B. Jones
Ends of the Earth by Tim Downs

3. I see from you blog side bar that you are involved in lots of challenges. Which one is your favorite and why?

My favorite reading challenges are the Fall Into Reading and Spring Reading Challenges hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days http://callapidderdays.com/

4. What do you do in "real life"?

My day job is in a Physical Therapy office checking in patients, answering the phone, setting up appointments, verifying insurance(harder than it sounds), Filing papers, pulling charts, etc.

5. What other things do you enjoying doing besides reading and blogging?

I like to watch some TV shows like Monk, The Closer, House MD, Jon and Kate Plus Eight, Cake Boss.

6. One of my favorite questions: Describe your perfect day.

My perfect day would be a day where I could read all day with breaks to check email, update my blog, read other blogs, eat, and pet the cats. :)

7. If you could invite four authors to dinner, living or dead, who would they be?

Jane Austen, Dee Henderson, Susan May Warren, and Jenny B. Jones

8. If you could read yourself into any story or book, which one would it be?

I think it would be cool to be written into the O'Malley Series by Dee Henderson.

9. Most of the authors you've listed on your blog's side bar are new to me. Pick one of your favorites and tell me about him/her.

Irene Hannon is a known Christian Fiction author mainly for romance. She is now writing suspense novels too and they are great. She brings her romantic touch to them in a perfect but not heavy way.

10. What are your five favorite books of all time?

I cannot answer this question without adding series. The O'Malley Series by Dee Henderson, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Canopy by Angela Hunt, The Hawk and the Jewel by Lori Wick

I don't know about you, but I've learned about a whole slew of new authors to check out. Not to mention another book blogger to add to the Reader! Thanks for dropping by and getting to know Brittanie today.


  1. I like the four author question, Suey. And it's interesting meeting new bloggers... There's a lot of books and authors here that I've never heard of, either.

  2. Thank you Suey. I enjoyed getting to know you also. :)

  3. Thank you Suey. It's lovely to meet a new blogger through this way and very interesting questions! I love the answer to the perfect day - that's something like what I would pick too!

  4. I haven't "met" Brittanie myself. Thanks for the great introduction Suey!

  5. That is one huge cat! So beautiful. :-) It's nice to meet Brittanie. I was just over at her blog reading her interview with you. :-) Those challenges are addicting, aren't they? The Closer is such a good show. Thanks for the great interview!
