A Bit About A Book Blogger! (2)

A Bit About A Book Blogger is basically me giving some of my favorite book lovers and bloggers some well deserved spotlight! I think it’s important to make someone feel good and proud of their accomplishments every once in a while. I know many do Book Blogger Interviews and I always admired that. I though I might join in! I will try to have this as a regular feature on every Monday. If you’d like to be featured and interviewed You can contact me with your info! I want to know all of you!

Everyone say hello to Aimee/Christie! She is a young blogger from the Philippines and I fell in love with her AWESOME blog! It is SO SO pretty! You should all take a look!

Bio: Hi there! My name’s Aimee, but you people online know me as Christie. I’ve used Christie as a pen name for quite a while. I’m thirteen and I live in the Philippines. If I’m not reading, I’m probably online, eating or sleeping. I’m a bad student–I mean, I get good grades, but it’s hard to listen to a teacher’s lecture if you know that there’s a book sitting inside your bag, waiting for the bell to ring so that it can be read.

Twitter: N/A (I have a love/hate relationship with Twitter)

Blog: http://theshadowersshelf.wordpress.com

Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/5478965-christie-the-shadower-s-shelf

So tell me, how long have you been a book lover and what is it that made you decide to start blogging?

I used to hate reading. I only got into reading around 2011, when the Red Riding Hood movie came out and no one would watch with me, so I had to read the book instead. After that, I just bought book after book after book, and my book addiction began from there.

Aside from Goodreads, blogs are great places to look for more books to read. I love reading about other people’s opinions on things. I don’t have an extravagant story on how I began blogging, but I love to express my opinion, whether good or bad, and so I decided to start blogging. And I thought, Why not?

What kind of person are you outside of the Book Blogging world?

I get good grades and honors in school. I tend to get frustrated easily with other people (particularly my classmates), which is something I definitely hope to change about myself. I’m a really lazy person and I tend to procrastinate a lot.

I hear you have a multitude of names? Care to elaborate?

My real name’s Aimee, but I didn’t want to share personal information when I was starting out in places like Wattpad, FanFiction.net and Goodreads. My first pen name, I think, was Holly or something along those lines.  On Wattpad, I started using the name Christie Meyer and that kind of stuck with me, so that’s the name I use online.

What is a notable book you Just KNOW you will remember forever?

Although it’s not my favorite book, Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally is definitely a memorable book for me. I think it’s the book that kept me in my longest book hangover ever. I couldn’t read anything after reading it. I didn’t want to part with Jordan, Henry and all of the other characters. It was really an emotional book for me and I re-read it every now and then.

If you had to choose only one book character as a BFF who would it be?

I think I’d choose Percy Jackson from Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan. He’s definitely a funny and heroic character. I would trade just about anything (except maybe my soul) to spend a day with him!

Do you have any odd bookish habits?

I tend to read two or more books at a time. I usually have one physical book to read and one e-book on my phone. I read the physical book when I’m at home and the e-book when I’m in school or at the mall. If I do bring a physical book to the mall with me, I end up reading while walking and I have to hold on to someone so that I don’t bump into a wall. I also end up losing all of my bookmarks and use scraps of paper to mark my page instead.

Quickly!! You have to name 5 books off the top of your head right now! GO!

The Program by Suzanne Young, The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, Impostor by Susanne Winnacker, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins andThe Iron King by Julie Kagawa! Lol, I haven’t even read the first three books in this list.

Cake or Pie?

Cake! Is it weird that I’ve never eaten pie yet?

Favorite color?

It depends on my mood. On a bad day, I’d say black, but on a good day, I’d say blue.

Name 3 non bookish things about yourself?

(1) I’m underweight and too short for my age, which is really depressing. (2) People say I’m moody. (3) I have a collection of teddy bears and fluffy pillows.

How did you chose your blog name?

I’m really into dark fantasies and definitely wanted the word shadow in it. I did a bit of research and found out that, in some online game or something, a shadower is what they call some sort of assassin. It sounded really cool, so I went with The Shadower’s Shelf.

A Bit About A Book Blogger! (1)

A Bit About A Book Blogger is basically me giving some of my favorite book lovers and bloggers some well deserved spotlight! I think it’s important to make someone feel good and proud of their accomplishments every once in a while. I know many do Book Blogger Interviews and I always admired that. I though I might join in! I will try to have this as a regular feature on every Monday. If you’d like to be featured and interviewed You can contact me with your info! I want to know all of you!
My first ever interviewee is Linda or Lindsay or Laura or Lily Lolipop etc. who is co-blogger with Rie at www.missiontoread.com and a wonderfully entertaining Twitterer!

Bio: The elusive Linda-saurus is a mover and shaker by day, book ninja by night. Only native to Florida. Afraid of small children and their germy hands. Has affinity for the elderly. Can be found lost in her imagination. Beware of her sarcastic humor.

Twitter: @Book_Ninja 

So Linda, How long have you been a book lover and what is it that made you decide to start blogging?
I’ve been a book lover since I can remember. Well, since I learned English and all that jazz. I discovered the wonderful world of blogs just two years ago and fell in love. Never had the guts to create my own book blog until I ran across a post wanting bloggers. I started blogging fall 2011, being a contributor for Mission to Read with Rie. She’s the best!

What kind of person are you outside of the Book Blogging world?
I’m part psycho, part OCD mental patient, and 150% perfectionist. I’m joking. Mostly. Right now, college is kicking my butt and I spend most of my free time on twitter or being dragged off to do crazy things with my friends. Oh yeah, I put the “PRO” in procrastinate.

I hear you have a multitude of names? Care to elaborate?
Because Linda is such a hard name to remember, I also let random people call me a variety of other nicknames. This includes Lindsay, Laura, Lisa and the ever famous, Peter. Melina gets to call me Lily Lollipop. A fellow blogger has also dubbed me Joan Banana Flickerman.

What is a notable book you Just KNOW you will remember forever?The Fault in Our Stars! John Green knows how to pull on your heartstrings. I spent a whole week alternating between crying into my beloved copy and laughing my head off. This book and its quirky characters continue to amaze me. For me, this is John Green’s masterpiece. DFTBA!

If you had to choose only one book character as a BFF who would it be?
Um…I really have no idea. Not really sure I want a kickass BFF like Rose from the VA series or Katniss. Wouldn’t want a whiny brat so common in YA books either. Now that I think about it, I call dibs on Noah from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer to be my best friend. We’ll rock the world together. Or blow up each others’ houses.

Do you have any odd bookish habits?
I DO NOT bend my spines, dog-ear my pages, or leave my books out in the rain for my imaginary dog to eat. The OCD in me gets a little crazy when my friends do. Also, I prefer hardback to paperback. A much better weapon against people who interrupt me when reading.

Quickly!! You have to name 5 books off the top of your head right now! GO!
Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Pride and Prejudice
In Honor by Jessi Kirby
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
The Great Gatsby

Cake or Pie?
Pie or die!!!

Favorite color?
Blue but I haven’t picked out the exact hue yet.

Name 3 non bookish things about yourself?
I really love cats. In fact, I stalk them.
I love sneaking up behind my friends.
Without my glasses, I’m pretty much useless.

Thanks for having me! Best first-time interview experience ever!
