Why We Read

tunedin_booksfromthebanner_large

Every person is made up by their past experiences. The sum of those experiences makes them the person they are today. Their likes, dislikes, wants, needs, and dreams all have root in moments and memories. One of these moments from our past influenced us to become readers, we didn’t just wake up one morning with a yen for a good book without some kind of outside influence. Continue reading

Why did you start your blog in the first place?

I started Literary Weaponry for a few reasons. The first being that I have definite opinions about books and I wanted to share them outside of Goodreads and Amazon reviews. Secondly, I wanted a website for my resume as I have been applying for newspaper, library, and transcription work. I can’t deny that I hope to make money from this at some point, however, it is also just fun and fulfilling to be a part of this diverse reading community.

What is your favorite book?

How does anyone answer that question? It’s like asking which kid is your favorite. I’ll give you a couple:

 

What do you dislike the most?

In books or in the world? In books I hate weak characters most. You know, that character that always needs saved and has no thoughts in their head and ignores the fact that free will is a thing? I hate that. I hate it more than love triangles and anything else. In the world, if I had to put a pin on it, I hate prejudices. It frustrates me to no end that I go out with my family and we get funny looks. I am Caucasian, my husband is Puerto Rican, and obviously our daughter is an adorable mix of the two. The looks we get sometimes just make my blood boil.

What is your favorite food at the mall?

Salted pretzels with cheese dip. Holy moly, it is so hard to resist those. I need the warm, salty pretzels and the sticky artificially colored and flavored orange cheese dip. It is amazing.

What is your favorite past time?

Uuuuhhhhh. I’m not one for hobbies so that is a bit difficult. I love watching old MASH reruns. You can never have too much Alan Alda. I feel like I’m writing an ad for a dating website or something, “I love old TV shows, listening to the rain on the roof, and catching fireflies.”

All ya’ll. I mean really, if you want to do this, please do it! If you do pop your link in the comments so I can take a look. Have a beautiful day, everyone.

What Makes a Book Special to you?

BannerFaded

Just like every person is different, every reader will have a different idea of what exactly makes a good book. Maybe you are the kind of person that really enjoys curling up with a glass of chardonnay and a good old Nora Roberts romance. Maybe you like to turn off all of the lights, set flame to a few candles, and read Dean Koontz’s latest thriller on your e-reader while soaking in the tub. Then again, perhaps you are a busy mom whose only time to read is between sessions of chasing your child at the park and you grab whatever book is handy to escape for a few minutes.
