SUPER Late Blogiversary, Q&A + GIVEAWAYYYY!!!!

Brianna and I decided to take a mini blog break for about two months. One of those months was our Blogiversary and we NEVER got to celebrate. Now, it’s two months later and we want to celebrate with you πŸ™‚

I can’t believe two years ago my sister and I decided to pick up book blogging, it’s an even bigger shocker we stuck with it! Blogging is fun, the people are so nice and so are the authors. I’m glad we started those two long years ago, we’ve definitely come a long way. Thanks to my family for supporting us and thank YOU for continually reading our blog and commenting on our posts/twitter. You make these long hours worth it ^^ We are here because of you!

Q&A

1. Why are you so awesome?

Pshhhh yoooouuuu. πŸ˜€ I can’t tell you, it is a secret! MWHAHAHAAaaaaa…. I am kidding XD you are awesome silly! Thank you πŸ™‚

2.Why is your Twitter avi so cute now? πŸ™‚

That is an EXCELLENT question :D! And I can’t answer that because well…I can’t XD haha thank you!

3. What is the biggest struggle when having two bloggers on the same blog?

That is a really good question :O. Honestly, Angelina and I don’t have a very hard time working together on our blog. We tend to rotate duties, she will write a review, I’ll read it, I’ll start a meme and she’ll help me finish it :). If I had to pick one thing that would be a struggle, it would be finishing posts sometimes, because occasionally, the other one wont want/have anything to add so you sit there and struggle with figuring out what to do to finish the post…

4. Why did you start blogging and why do you continue to do it?

Well, our Dad has always said that we should start a blog because we a read, A LOOOOOOOOOOOOOT and we were like naaah, naaaah, noooooo. And then one day, when we were bored we were like, “why not?” So we started a blog and quickly fell in love! Blogging is a lot of work, a lot more work than you would expect at first. But it is so worth it! Angelina and I have become better writers and readers through blogging. We continue to blog for a ton of reasons actually :). 1. Blogging is fun, like I said, a lot of work, but very fun! We love reading other blogs and commenting on them, we love the interactions with other readers. 2. That kind of goes into our second reason, we love the community! Book bloggers are very sweet πŸ™‚ there is apparently some drama that happens sometimes, but I think we are kind of like a super big internet family. You don’t have to be afraid to talk to authors, or other bloggers (big or small) because they’re sweet and kind! You can find all sorts of book lovers who adore the same things, books, ships, and so on! the twitter chats, the book pushing, the constant fanning over fictional characters/worlds/authors :)! 3. Book recommendations! Before book blogging, I had a hard time finding books. But now we are always having books pushed at us XD! And 4. we kind of already said this, but book blogging has made us a lot of friends πŸ™‚ we have made connects through these two years with everyone involved in the community! Authors, bloggers, book lovers and more, we’ve made friends and we are so thankful for that!

5.What got you into reading?

Ohhhhh that’s toughy! Well, I would probably say our Dad again. When we were little, he used to take us to the bookstore all the time and we’d just sit in the children’s section or explore the huuuuuge shelves of books (even when we couldn’t read). So I give my Dad that credit :). Plus he used to read to us at night, so there is that!!!

6.What is your favorite movie?

OH SHOOT! I love a lot of movies XD! I (Brianna) ADORE the Star Trek movies with a fiery burning passion (SPOOOOOOCK!), Guardians of the Galaxy might be my number one though because STARLORD, GROOT, PUNS, that guy who doesn’t get the puns, the humor, the music, the story, the EVERYTHING! But like I said, I loved the Star Trek movies (the new one D: I’ve never seen the show so don’t hate meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…) But basically, anything Marvel works for me πŸ™‚

But Angelina is a huge fan of the Avengers XD

Can you tell we love Marvel? XD XD XD XD

7.Do you have any book pet-peeves? If so, what are they?

I have a few D:

I really don’t like that mysterious new boy who just KNOWS, like everything. It’s creepy, “hey girl, I know what’s up. You’re the chosen one/vampire/werewolf/queen/fairy. I’m better than your BFF guy D:< pick me girl, pick meeeee.” Sorry, I just hate that so much! Why do the MCs always chose Mr. Dark, mysterious and creepy over the sweet, funny one who KNOWS her better in a less creepy way?

And Angelina feels the same way XD trust me, we talk about this all the time haha. Not to sound awful, but it’s a big pet peeve of mine…

8.What are your passions aside from reading?

We like a lot πŸ™‚ recently, we made a Top Ten Tuesday about this (Here!!!) but to list it out…. Video games (Persona, Legend of Zelda, Animal Crossing, Uncharted, and Final Fantasy to name a few)! We also love movies and tv show binge watching (Teen Wolf, Game of Thrones, Mr. Robot and Agent’s of Shield are our favorites!!) Β Other than that, we write, listen to music, draw sometimes, and PINTEREST it up :D!

9.What are the best and worst books you’ve read?

The best books I’ve read… I (Brianna) have a lot, I tend to love books more than hate them πŸ™‚

Love Fortunes and Other Disasters, Throne of Glass, The Lunar Chronicles, Illuminae, The Impostor Queen, Beyond the Red, An Inheritance ofΒ Ashes… but I mostly fangirl over Throne of Glass and Illuminae πŸ™‚

As for books I REALLY don’t like…

The Catcher in the Rye D:< hated it, never liked it, worst thing I’ve ever read in the history of this world. I don’t think anything will replace my hate for this book! Just the mention of it >_< bleh. But a more modern book I really didn’t enjoy was Unhooked :/

NOTE: I don’t hate all classics XD I love some of them! I really liked The Great Gatsby ❀ it’s my favorite classic!

 

As for Angelina, her favorites are The Maze Runner by James Dashner and Calamity by Brandon Sanderson πŸ™‚ The WORST would be The Catcher in the Rye and Blood Red Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick. She liked his other books but could NOT get into that one, she said it was super boring Β :/

10. How do you find the time to balance blogging and life?

Well, high school wasn’t that hard for us, we never had much homework so we just spent our time working on our blog. When we weren’t blogging we were writing. Now that college starts, we’ll have to see how exactly we’re going to balance that AND a job (once we get one…). So, since we don’t have a lot to do, or anywhere to go, our lives are pretty much blogging and writing.

 

Thanks for all the questions πŸ˜€ if you have more, comment below!

 

Now I believe we did mention a giveaway…didn’t we? Nah…I’m not feeling it anymore. I change my mind, there is no giveaway.
