New blood book blogger on the block interview Lori from Romancing the Darkside

 Everyone please welcome my new blood book blog on the block for March. It's Lori from Romancing the Darkside

Laurie-Tell us a little about yourself? 

Lori-Hey everyone and thanks for having me! I'm a  single NYC girl who is currently between jobs and dedicating her spare time to catching up on lost reading time! I'm a compulsive book buyer who definitely would have a seat with my name on it in a Book Addicts Anonymous meeting if there was such a thing. 

Laurie-How long have you been reading? What’s your favorite genre? 

Lori-I've been reading since I was about 5 years old. Reading was always a passion for me and I always had a book or two in my hands.
My favorite genre is paranormal romance, especially vampire paranormal romance...I love vampires!

Laurie-When and why did you start doing book reviews?

Lori-I started writing reviews when I joined Shelfari to share my love or dislike for the books I read with friends and other members. I always find it helpful when someone gives their honest opinion of a book and hope my reviews help others in deciding whether to read a book or not

Laurie-How long have you been reviewing books?
Lori-I've been reviewing books for almost three years.

Laurie-Do you take notes for your reviews while you read?

Lori-I don't usually take notes while I read but I'll bookmark or tag a quote I really like to incorporate in my review.

Laurie-Why did you started a book blog?

Lori-I started a book blog to share my love of books with fellow book lovers and friends. I was reviewing for another site for a little bit but decided to do something on my own and review the books I love to read. I also love meeting other book lovers!

Laurie-How long doest it usually take you to read and write a review for your blog?

Lori-It takes me 1-2 days to read a book if I don't have distractions. A review can take anywhere from an hour to a full day. Sometimes I know exactly what I want to write and there are times that I need a little time to reflect before I start writing.

Laurie-What’s the hardest thing you had to do in setting up your blog?

Lori-The hardest thing in setting up my blog was coming up with its name! Once I had that everything else just fell into place. It's still a work in progress but I'm having fun working on it.

Laurie-What’s the most exciting thing that has happened to you since your started your blog?

Lori-Being asked to do this interview has been the most exciting thing to happen to me since I started my blog! I wasn't expecting this since my blog is really new.  I hope to have author interviews and get to chat with some of my fave authors soon!

Laurie-What’s your favorite thing to do on your blog?

Lori-I love to post the weekly meme's I participate in and I really love to read comments posted, it's great when someone takes their time to write a great comment, it makes the blogging experience worthwhile!

Laurie-Any tips that you have for a new up coming book blogger?

Lori-Have fun and stay true to yourself. Some bloggers read quickly and post a new review every day and some read slower and review one or two a week...never feel the need to compete with things at your own pace!

Laurie-What’s the most books you read in a week?

Lori-The most I read in a week is 3-4 books, I can squeeze in more if they're novellas.

Moments of Beauty by JB Heller ~ Cover Reveal and Giveaway

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
