Although the Bloggiesta book blogging marathon is over, participants are still eligible to do the Getting to Know You Challenge where we try to get to know another book blogger by cruising around their blog. I have decided to tell you about Felicia from The Geeky Bloggers Book Blog who I came upon during my Bloggiesta adventures.
Felicia is a North Texas gal with quite a personality, an apparent love for getting into character (just see her About page) and a love, of course, for books. She is not accepting books for review in 2013 and is focusing on reading those books she wants to read. She enjoys romance, mystery/thrillers and some non-fiction.
I enjoyed hopping around her blog and found that she does several recurring features that are interesting, like Favorite Book Quotes or Reading Quotes where Felicia shares an awesome quote from a book or about books and Blogger Confessions where she writes candidly, in this case about why blog tours are not miracle workers. She is also a World Book Night giver which gives her an opportunity to distribute free copies of a book to help encourage non-readers to give reading a chance and she’s participating in the Seriously Series Reading Challenge. Seriously? Do I need to sign up for another challenge? No, but that makes it no less tempting.
Although she asks us to “forgive the mess”, I was really drawn to Felicia’s blog design, the cool lady in the blog button, and a neat navigation bar where you can choose from a wide variety of authors, quotes, ratings by wine glasses, challenges and book genre to take you anywhere you want to go in her site. I think it makes it quite neat and concise to include the tags in a navigation bar, especially cause she has written so much! Felicia has been blogging since 2006 but I am a new follower and look forward to her posts, finding some good mysteries to read, and seeing what her blog looks like when the design is through.
Please pay Felicia a visit and others in the Getting to Know You Challenge. I hope you’ll enjoy cruising around these blogs as much as I have!
