My BEA Armachair Introduction

Design credit to Nina of Nina Reads

Q: Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? 

I am Itara, I've been consistently blogging since March of this year. I started blogging to share me love for books and to keep track of what I read. 

Q: Where in the world are you blogging from? Tell a random fact or something special about your current location. Feel free to share pictures. 

I currently live in Virginia because of my husband's job, he's in the military. We are moving back home where we grew up in south Florida. We have 2 kids, my boy is 2 1/2 years old and my baby girl is almost 5 months old. 

Q: Have you previously participated in Armchair BEA? What brought you back for another year? If you have not previously participated, what drew you to the event? 

This has been my first year. I wanted to attend BEA in person but was unable to, but I'm sure I will someday. 

Q: What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2013?  

Tangled (Tangled, #1) This is what I'm currently reading & it's so good. The main character is really funny.

Runes by Ednah Walters This has been my favorite book so far this year. It's so good and interesting to me, the perfect genre I like to read, paranormal romance.

Q: Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you. 

I used to draw when I was young and I've been trying to get back into it.

Q: Name your favorite blog(s) and explain why they are your favorite(s).   

They are listed on my blog to the right.

Q: Which is your favorite post that you have written that you want everyone to read? 

OMG, this is a hard one. I don't really have one in particular, I think they are all good.

Q: If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why? 

I have to pick Cassandra Clare author of The Mortal Instruments series and The Infernal Devices series. I have only read The Mortal Instruments and I loved it and I can't wait to see the movie. I recently got Clockwork Princess so I will start that series soon. I would like to have dinner with her to talk about her books, her upcoming projects, and I would like to know what a typical day for her would be.
A character that I would like to know would have tot be Jace from the same series. Instead of dinner I would like to go to the institute where he lives and have him show me what a day in his life would be.

I also really like Ednah Walters author of the Runes series, she is so cool to talk to. She is very approachable and friendly, I really enjoy our talks. I'd love to have dinner with her to discuss her books, upcoming projects and anything else she'd like to share.

Q: What literary location would you most like to visit? Why? 

The institute from TMI series, it sounds like a really cool place to go to and many important scenes happened there.

Q: What is your favorite part about the book blogging community? 

I love interacting with other bloggers, there's nothing like people sharing their love for books.

Q: Is there anything that you would like to see change in the coming years?

I hope to meet many more amazing bloggers and learn about other great books.



  1. Fingers crossed for getting to BEA one year! It's quite a trek for me from the UK but I also hope to make it one year!

  2. I just picked up Tangled and heard it was fantastic! I just heard of Runes a few weeks ago, and like you I'm a fan of PNR, but lately New Adult/comtemp.romance has a hold on me. Have a great week on #ArmChairBEA and hopefully one day you and me both will be able to attend the actual event!

  3. New blogger!! Welcome to the blogging world AND welcome to Armchair BEA!!!!!!

    Awwww cute >_< babies rock!

    Oh boy, you love Ednah's book?!!!! Where have you been all my life? hahah I'm actually a great fan of Ednah's, met her when she first published her indie book and now she's gone al pro and stuff. I've yet to read Runes but I hope to remedy that soon :)

    TMI!!! Ahhh!!! Those books are amazing though I've gotten behind on my reading because of the waiting in between releases... I need to reread them before I pick up CoLS...

    You're right. The best part, I believe, is interacting with other and new bookish people.

    Have fun this week!

    Here's my Introduction post for Day 1 if you'd like to stop by.

  4. I have heard a lot of good things about Tangled! Can't wait to read it.

  5. You have such little ones...sigh. I kind of miss those days ;) My "baby" is 13 years old.

    I hope you're having a great ABEA!

  6. I still haven't read anything by Cassandra Clare. Everyone seems to love her books, though! The movie looked a little strange to me, probably why I haven't read the books. I'll still probably end up seeing it in theater. I may be pleasantly surprised!

  7. I remember having babies. They really do get big so fast. Hope you enjoy Armchair BEA. I think that it is going to be really fun!
