Better Know A Blogger: Noa - Paperback Dolls

The Ultimate Reviewer's Challenge is over but we still have a few more bloggers to meet. Today we have Noa from the Paperback Dolls!

*What is your name/blogger name? Noa (Doll)

*What is the name of your blog? Paperback Dolls

*Do you have an auto-buy author, someone whose writing is so good, you have to read every single thing they write? Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, CS Harris, Deanna Raybourn, Cynthia Harrod Eagles, Tasha Alexander and Sharon Penman

Karen: I've just discovered Ilona Andrews and they are now on my auto-buy list as well.

*Who is your all-time favorite couple in literature, and why? (Or favorite male/female character) : Francis Crawford of Lymond and Phillipa Somerville (Lymond Chronicles, Dorothy Dunnet) and Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett...and so many more!

Karen: This seemed to be the toughest question for everyone. There are just too many to choose from!

*Do you have an e-reader? Do you prefer e-books or regular books, or use both? I just got one - but haven't used it yet! I love my paperbacks.

Karen: I hope you like your new e-reader Noa. I didn't think I would like mine but now I love it! Although I still buy a fair number of books in print.

*What are your Top 5 picks for the best books of 2010? Magic Bleeds (Ilona Andrews) Dark Road to Darjeeling (Deanna Raybourn), What Remains of Heaven (CS Harris), Dangerous to Know (Tasha Alexander), Silver Borne (Patricia Briggs)

Karen: Loved Magic Bleeds! I swear I will catch up on the Mercy Thompson series in my lifetime!!

*What book or series has been sitting in your TBR the longest? The More Deceived - a mystery book by David Roberts...I need to be in the mood for it. :)

*What's the best thing about blogging and reviewing books? Getting to share books I love with others and visa versa plus - finding out that others feel the same way about some of my favorite books.

Karen: Thank you for coming by today Noa! I'm hoping to meet up with you in person at BEA this year!

Catch up with all the bloggers featured during the challenge HERE, including Day & Desilula also from the Paperback Dolls.

  2. Oh, and I can't wait to meet you at BEA - you are my BEA Yoda!

  3. *Hugs* to Tiger

    Thank you! It really is so much fun to 'meet' other bloggers and book lovers. It is in my opinion, one of the best thing about the world wide web :D
