2015 Book Blogger Love-a-Thon Questionnaire Post

The 2015 Book Bloggers Love-A-Thon hosted by Alexa Loves Book is a time for the blogging community to show some book love to authors and to fellow bloggers. This is my first one! Find out more info about his event here.


1. What’s your name? My name is Sarah (like half of the blogging community!)

2. Where in the world are you blogging from? I am blogging from COLD COLD Michigan.

3. How did you get into blogging in the first place? Twitter. I really got into reading over the last couple of years and wanted to be able to join the amazing book community where I can flail about books.

4. How did you come up with your blog name? It’s pretty straight forward. I was deciding on a name and all I could think about was that reading takes you on an adventure. So, The YA Book Traveler was born!

5. What genre do you read and review the most on your blog? I read and review mostly fantasy and dystopian. There are an occasional contemporary or NA in there as well.

6. What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews? I’m new to blogging and have very limited time to do it. I’ve done a few Top Ten Tuesdays and a Stacking the Shelves.

7. Best blogging experience so far? I would say meeting other bloggers. They’re SOOOO wonderful!

8. Favorite thing about the blogging community? To be honest, I probably tweet my Twitter blogging community more than I do real life friends. I love books and this is the place where we can be excited together. Everyone is so amazing and sweet.

9. Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2015! The Orphan Queen, ACOTAR, Ice Like Fire, The Wrath and the Dawn, and An Ember in Ashes. (Only 5??? There are so many more)

10. What’s an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read? I love Starters by Lissa Price. It’s a great duology. I’m not sure if it qualifies as underrated but I love it.

11. Which book boy or girl would be your book BFF? Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke and Bone or Roar from Under the Never Sky! They’re both so fun!

12. Apart from reading, what are your other hobbies or interests? I work for my church and I love leading children’s ministry. It’s super fun and I love my church family.

13. Apart from book shopping, what else do you like shopping for? I’m a mom of 3, I never get to go shopping! lol  Um…clothes?

14.At a party, the DJ suddenly changes the song – and it’s your song. What song 

would be playing? I’m actually at a loss on this one…sad!

15.Pick out either a book you want turned into a film/TV show, or a film/TV 

show you want turned into a book. I WANT FROSTBITE! (cries). I was so sad the Vampire Academy movies won’t keep being made…

Thanks for stopping by and join all the fun on Twitter, #LoveAThon

  1. Sarah!! Buenos días!! *waves*
    I love your blog name! It has a sense of adventure to it, doesn't it? And that's what books do indeed!
    I agree, I spend so much time on Twitter, but I have no shame on it, I love chatting with books with my bloggy friends!
    Zuze!! You are right, she'll make the most amazing bff everr!!


  2. SARAH…what a great name! 😉 It's been great getting to know you recently and I love that we have so many anticipated books in common! Hope you're having a great Love-a-Thon already! See you around! {hugs}


  3. Hi, Sarah. I never realized until you mentioned it, but there are a lot of Sarahs in the book blogging world.

    I also use Twitter to talk to my book blogging friends more than my real ones. It seems like someone is always online. lol

    Stay warm! 🙂


  4. Hi Sarah! I'm excited for ACOTAR too! And I think it's lovely you lead children's ministry and are close with your church family! Also, I so need to start Starters already. 😀


  5. Hi, Sarah — I'm so excited to find someone else who's doing ministry alongside book blogging — I'm a part-time intern for my campus Wesley Foundation! (And I have a sister named Sarah!)

    I'm excited for ACOTAR too, but I haven't read past the first TOG book. It's kind of shameful.

    Great post!


  6. I'm right there with you girl! I talk to my Twitter blogging friends more than I do my real life friends! Haha. Roar would definitely be one of my BFF's. He was such a great friend to both Perry and Aria! I also love the name of your blog!


  7. Ah! I love your list of 5 reads you're anticipating, because I'm totally anticipating them with you. (Except for Orphan Queen, because I was lucky enough to read it already! So good!). And being buddies with Zuzana or Roar would be pretty awesome 🙂

    Thanks for joining the Love-a-Thon!


  8. I LOVE Sara Raasch! Ice Like Fire is definitely on my list too <3

    I love that you mentioned that reading takes you on an adventure. I totally agree!

    Also, being new is actually one of the best things. once you get older, there's a different feeling! Enjoy your newness <333


  9. Love your answers! There are SO MANY great books coming out this year, I had a hard time keeping my list to only 5 too. I am excited for all the ones you've picked! Zuzana is a great BFF pick! And I LOVE Roar. <3
    Great answers, and I have enjoyed getting to know you a little better. 😀
