During this entire week you'll be seeing Armchair BEA posts. If you don't know what BEA and Armchair BEA are, I've included a brief explanation and a few links if you's like to check it out more.
What's BEA? It stands for Book Expo America. It's a yearly conference for people in the publishing industry; publishers, authors, editors, librarians, professional readers and reviewers, book bloggers, etc. Find out more here.
What's Armchair BEA? Armchair BEA is for us book bloggers who are unable to attend BEA, so we participate from home. Learn more about it here.
Thanks for stopping in to read my Armchair BEA introduction. My mail goal for this week is to meet more blogger friends. One can never have enough book loving friends! I decided to keep this intro short and sweet by answering 3 questions.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
I'm Tamara from Michigan and I love books! I've been blogging off and on a couple blogs since fall 2010. My want to blog seems to come and go on my other blogs, but when I started my book blog in January 2012, blogging finally stuck! I guess I found the perfect outlet that allowed me to be consistent with blogging. I started Shelf Addiction because I LOVE books and LOVE talking about them! I've been reviewing books long before book blogging became popular. I actually started writing reviews for every book that I read in high school. I did it on my own, just because I liked doing it. There was no assignment, blog or publication, I was just doing what I enjoyed. Yep, it probably sounds a bit nerdy...but so what, I guess I'm a nerd girl! No shame there. You can find out even more about me by checking out my bio here!
Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details -- Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. -- so we can connect more online.
I think that my tag line describes this blog perfectly: Feeding the book lovers addiction, one book at a time.

What book would you love to see as a movie?
The Daughter of Smoke and Bone would make an AMAZING movie! The visual effects could be stunning. It's always risky when books are made into movies, but I believe that this series would translate well onto the big screen if done right. I loved the book, it's one of my favorites that I read last year. Read my review here.
