Where are you from? Were you a big reader as a child?
(Anna) I’m from Central Texas, born and raised. J I never really read much until after high school but once I started I couldn’t stop myself.
I definitely was a big reader as a child. My Mom always said I had my nose in a book growing up. The minute I started reading, I was addicted.
What made you decide to start a book blog?
(Anna) I have this overwhelming need to share with people my love for reading and such, so that is what made me start my first blog. What made Fran and I start Book Lovin’ Mamas together was because we knew we both read the same types of books and two bloggers is better than one so we teamed up. Best decision I ever made!
(FranJessca) Same answer as Anna….we teamed up together to share our love of reading and created Book Lovin’ Mamas together. BEST DECISION ever! Seriously…I have the best blog partner ever.
What’s your biggest challenge as a book blogger?
(Anna) Keeping my house clean. That probably sounds funny but it’s not so easy to keep up with two kids, 3 and 7 years old, keep my house clean and keep my TBR list and review list under control. I love what I do though, so it’s worth it. J
Who are some of your favorite authors and why?
(Anna) Maya Banks and Lora Leigh because they have the best heroes, big and bad and very domineering. Nailini Singh, Marjorie Lui and Rhyannon Byrd because they have the sexiest shifters. Karen Moning because Jericho Barrons, Christian MacKeltar and the MacKeltar twins….no need to say more there. Mari Carr, Lexxie Couper, Selena Blake, Karen Erickson, Elle Kennedy because their erotica is the hottest EVER! Oh I could keep going and going. I have too many favorites.
What’s your biggest book/story related pet peeve?
(Anna) Whiny heroines and womanizing heroes are my biggest story pet peeves. My biggest book pet peeve is folding down the corner to mark your page. Drives me nuts! LOL
If you could only read one genre for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
(Anna) This is easy, Romance. It’s all I read now. But please don’t make me choose one sub-genre. I’d never be able to pick one. I need them all! J
Thanks for having us Selena! This was a lot of fun!!!
Book Lovin’ Mamas Bio
Anna and FranJessca met years ago while they were both members of an online mommy message board. Though they have not ever met in person yet, they have known each other for years, keeping in touch thanks to facebook. One day a little over a year ago they started talking about maybe starting up a book review blog together instead of continuing their own personal blogs. They both enjoyed the same types of books so why not. And there begins Book Lovin’ Mamas! And boy has it been a fun first year!!!
