Better Know a Blogger: Desilula - The Paperback Dolls

Today we welcome The Paperback Dolls tween book reviewer Desilula! You can check out her fanatastic reviews of tween and childrens books here
What is your name/blogger name? Desilula
What is the name of your blog?

Do you have an auto-buy author, someone whose writing is so good, you have to read every single thing they write? Rachel Caine, Maggie Stiefvater, Cassandra Clare...used to be Suzanne Collins but I recently changed my mind.
Who is your all-time favorite couple in literature, and why? (Or favorite male/female character)
Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen because of the way their story makes me feel when reading it. I want to find my own Peeta someday...pre-Mockingjay Peeta anyway.
Karen - aww...another fellow reader scarred by Mockingjay :-) We should form a club. I would leave my husband for Peeta - I love him!
Do you have an e-reader? Do you prefer e-books or regular books, or use both? Nope. But I use kindle for PC and iPhone sometimes. I really, really need a kindle. I have friends that do not read nearly as much as I do and they have an e-reader. I find this sooooo unfair, don't you?
Karen: Completely unfair! MOM????
What are your Top 5 picks for the best books of 2010?
Matched by Ally Condie
Ghost Town by Rachel Caine
Linger by Maggie Stiefvater
Heist Society by Ally Carter
Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
What book or series has been sitting in your TBR the longest? Vampire Academy
What's the best thing about blogging and reviewing books? When I get a reply from an author I admire on twitter or facebook saying they appreciate my review. That's awesome!

Thanks so much for stopping by today Desilula!


  1. Cool! An "I heart Peeta club before Suzanne Collins ruined him" would have so many members!!! Thanks for having me:D

  2. HA! I am sure her mother would be more than willing to get her a kindle or something *IF* Desilula could keep up with her ipod, cell phone, etc...

    I'll join the I love Peeta club!

    Thanks Karen.
