Lights, Camera, Blog Action!

This is a special feature dedicated to spreading the word about the other great blogs that are out there! I have found a lot of great blogs through such features and I want to be able to share some book blog joy too!

Today I am featuring Allison from I Heart Books. This is another new blog that I have come across recently it worth checking out. It's got a very peaceful background and header (I am always on the lookout for good blog design) and the reviews are very appealing.

Tell us something about yourself.

I am a Mom to 5 kids who are aged 9 years down to 10 months.

What was your favorite book as a child or young adult, and why?

I loved the Baby Sitter’s Club series. I babysat a lot but it was never as great as in the books! LOL

Why do you love to read?

I am not very social (OK some may even say I am anti-social) and instead of being with people I can hang out alone with a great book.

How do you choose your books?

Mostly by the covers. If the cover is intriguing then I will pick it up and read the blurb. Then if it still sounds good, I buy it!

If you had to narrow it down - who would be your 3 favorite authors and what would be your 3 favorite books?

My 3 favorite authors are Jodi Picoult, James Patterson, and Karin Slaughter. My 3 favorite books are My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Piccoult, The Language of Secrets by Diane Dixon, and From the Corner of His Eye by Dean Koontz.

When and why did you start your blog?

I started my book blog in Mar 2010. I decided that my main blog was too cluttered and a separate book blog would help.

How did you choose your blog's name?

I just love books so I Heart Books! was perfect and available.

What do you love about book blogging?

Free Books!! I love getting books from publishers and PR because most of these books are ones I wouldn’t normally buy but they are really good books. Book blogging has helped my really branch out into different genres of books that I am willing to read.

What tips do you have to offer to other book bloggers?

Post something every day. It’s really hard to miss a few days and then try to get back to blogging.


I used to love the Baby Sitters Club as well. I always thought that Claudia was the coolest. There is one that stands out in my memory, where Stacy (the names are a bit figgy now) was babysitting identical twins and the twins would take off their name bracelets and confuse her about which one they were. And I also know what you mean about not being very social. I sometimes wish that I were more social when I see my friends making new friends so easily, but I just don't seem to be able to do the same thing.


Thanks for participating Allison, I hope everyone takes the time to have a look at I Heart Books.
