Better Know A Blogger: Caitlin - The Scarrlet Reader
Another new blogger!! Caitlin's motto is "Life gave me books, so I read them" - LOVE it! Go check out her beautiful blog. I have a thing for blogs with flowers.....they relax me, so The Scarrlet Reader is a regular stop.
Your Name: Caitlin
Name of your blog: Scarrlet Reader (http://scarrletreader.blogspot.com/)
When did you start The Scarrlet Reader? I started Scarrlet Reader in the near the end of May of 2010, so i'm kind of a newbie to the blogging world, though is one of the best decisions I've made for myself. I love it!
Number of followers? 116
What do you review? I review the books that interest me. I don't just focus on one genre, but travel into all the different selections of the book world. I review mostly YA books and I do have a liking for paranormal romances. But really, I'll give anything a shot.
How did you get the name for your blog? *grin* I happen to like when people ask me this question because it infact does come with a story. I am, as most of the people that know me know, a danger magnet. I always find a way to hurt myself and as a result I have my fair share of scars all over myself, so some of my friends started calling me Scarr about three years ago. So then, my favorite color is purple, but my second is red and I've always loved the name Scarlett. So when it came time to name my blog, I came up with the name Scarr-let Reader. XD
How would you describe your blog? It's my relief place. It's where I can talk books how ever much I want with out the poeple around me going cross eyed from listening to be talk about my recent read. It's a place where I can be myself yet I am someone else at the same time. People on my blog know me as Caitlin or ScarrletReader. People in my life know me as Caitlin the girl who spends all her money on books or the Reading Addict. It's like I'm two people in the same body. My blog is a blog where my rambling and thoughts can be heard.
What kind of blogger are you? Very organized or fly by the seat of your pants? *snorts* Organized? I don't know the meaning of the word. I'm a very "in the moment" kind of person. So sometimes when I finish a book the review may come about an hour later or may not even be write a week later. I don't usually have things planned out, but I have found that having a blog can make a person become organized. I can't wait too long to review a book or I might forget something and I can't have everything I want posted at once sometimes. I've learned that I need to keep things in a little bit more order. Though if you saw my room you'd definately know I wasn't the most organized.
What is your favorite review or post for your own blog? That's easy. It would have to be my review for North of Beautiful. I loved that book so much I feel like the review I did for it really gets across how wonderful this book is! http://scarrletreader.blogspot.com/2010/08/book-review-north-of-beautiful.html
