Better Know A Blogger: Becky - Bibliognome

Today I'm welcoming Becky from Bibliognome! When your done reading her interview here, head over to her blog and check out her review for The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab. Very well written and now I have another book to add to my TBR pile!! I'm not sure if I should thank you for that Becky...LOL

*What is your name/blogger name? Becky/Becky B.
*What is the name of your blog? Bibliognome,

*Do you have an auto-buy author, someone whose writing is so good, you have to read every single thing they write? My definite auto-buy authors are Anne Bishop, Gini Koch, Gary Paulsen, Caroline Clooney, Anton Strout oh and now Carolyn Crane (especially after reading the end of Double Cross). These authors all write great characters who I personally would read anything written about them.
Karen - I have heard so much about Carolyn Crane and that series - I must add it to the TBR pile.

*Who is your all-time favorite couple in literature, and why? (Or favorite male/female character)
My all-time favorite couple in literature is Daemon Sadi and Jaenelle Angelline because you got to follow their entire journey to find each other and the stories are still going on, mostly in short story form, so you can continue to see them grow and change.

*Do you have an e-reader? Do you prefer e-books or regular books, or use both? Yes, I got one for Christmas, a very nice Sony Daily Edition reader that I named James Reader. :) The best part of having an e-reader is the portability and the amount of legitimately free books that can be found. I have started using e-books more often but will probably always prefer regular books over e-books.
Karen - It's funny how many people have named they're e-readers! I name all my electronic toys too.
*What are your Top 5 picks for the best books of 2010?
My top 5 books for the best books of 2010 are:
1.) Alien Tango by Gini Koch
2.) How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu
3.) Double Cross by Carolyn Crane
4.) Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel
5.) Nightshade by Andrea Cremer

*What book or series has been sitting in your TBR the longest? It’s probably a tie between Souless by Gail Carriger and Thirteenth Child by Patricia C. Wrede.

*What's the best thing about blogging and reviewing books? The best thing about blogging and reviewing books besides the occasional free/winning books is making connections with people and books that I may have never even heard of before.

Karen - Thanks so much for stopping by Becky! That is a formidable pile of books there!! There is never enough time to get to them all is there??


  1. I've really been getting into shorter works these days. I think it's because I'm finding time is limited, but I still love to read. So who are these Daemon Sadi and Jaenelle Angelline characters? Maybe they're just the thing for me.

  2. @Reena, they're characters from the Black Jewels series by Anne Bishop. (a really great series, I pretty much love everything that Anne Bishop writes :) )

  3. Hey Becky! You've pretty much convinced me to finally read Gini Koch. :-)

  4. Hi Tiger, cool you really should read the books the characters are great and there's lots of moments where you'll probably actually laugh out loud. :)

    And thank you for all the Turnaround Tuesday giveaways that you do.
