Q: What inspired you to start book blogging?
A: I remember doing book reports as a kid in school. It was a way to share your feelings after reading, usually a pretty heavy read like Of Mice And Men. I was reading non-stop all day, not watching a lick of tv, and averaging 200 books a year. I thought to those book report days and it had me wanting to share my thoughts on books again. I didn't even really know what blogging was. I actually went online doing a Google search for journaling. That's when blogging came up. I decided to give it a try and haven't looked back since. Honestly, it has forwarded me some opportunities that I never would have had. I've met a great community of people that also love books. It's just made me a better person and helped me to grow. I'm on my 12th blogoversary this August, so I feel like something is going right.

  4. Ooh this sounds like a fun read! Keke Palmer is delightful, so I'm not surprised that jumps off the page here as well. I do also remember book reports and how nervous I was about sharing my opinion, in case it was "wrong", and blogging was a beautiful way for me to grow into my opinion and express it more confidently! Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a lovely weekend :)

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
