The Book BFFs are making their debut into the book blogging world! We are a bunch of girls who share a love (an addiction would be a more accurate term) with books and reading! We all found eachother during Bout of Books 7.0. We decided we wanted to get to know eachother better and came up with interviews. We all interview a fellow Book BFF and in return we are interviewed by another Book BFF! Now this isn’t only for us! Anyone who shares a love (AKA addiction) for book can request to be interviewed by us. Or even you and your own Book BFF can interview eachother! Make it fun!
I was paired with Angela from Reading Angel!
And Rie from Mission To Read was appointed as my interviewer! Go check out her blog if you want to get to know me better! I will link all interviews after you all meet Angela!

DreamFever by Karen Marie Moning – because it’s my current audiobook
Touch Me by Olivia Cunning – because if I don’t find time to read it soon I’m going to scream!
5. What are your blogging tactics/strategies? How do you, personally,manage blogging and your real life?
Use a blogging calender religiously
Schedule tons of posts in advance when I have a free evening, because they don’t come often.
Have extra stuff on the backburner for when I’m behind
Don’t let myself stress the small stuff
Lean on my blogging friends when I do stress
Love my bookish/blogging friends like woah, because THEY GET ME!!!

7. What are other hobbies of yours? And which one takes up most of your attention (when you aren’t reading)
My playing with my son, helping with his homework, reading with him, and taking him to baseball, basketball and taekwondo take up most of my time. My other main hobby is cross-stitching right now. Love it!
