I know I was suppose to do this last week, but there was some communication problems. But now I decided to combine both weeks.
1. What is the Summer Blogger Promo Tour?
The Summer Blogger Promo Tour is a summer tour that we’ve put together at The Book Bratz that helps a bunch of bloggers both new and old link up with each other and collab on fun posts throughout the summer!
My partner is Lili @ Utopia State of Mind
My name is Lili and I am a scholar at heart, obsessed with SFF and always carrying a book wherever I go (including to the top of a dormant volcano and mountain for Instagram photos). I did my Masters and BA in Women’s Studies and English Literature. I lived in Germany for three years and am now working in the publishing industry. I am obsessed with diversity and use Utopia State Of Mind to champion books I feel deserve more praise and attention (including smaller presses and indie authors).
Some facts about Lili:
9. Right now I’m back in New York, but I grew up in in New York, went to school in Pennsylvania, and moved to Germany for three years since High School.
10. My favorite book series would have to be….The Reader, The Speaker, and The Storyteller from Traci Chee – if you’re talking about recent favorites. Old school nostalgia favorites include The Immortals Quartet from Tamora Pierce and The Fallen Kingdom Trilogy from Garth Nix.
11. The most influential book seems like a cruel question – and I know I’m the one who made it up! Gosh, I guess it would be Sabriel by Garth Nix.
12. I don’t know what the first books I bought for myself were. I spent my childhood and, almost whole life in a library, until I moved to Germany. I took out almost 100 books every two weeks it felt like, especially when they were picture books!
13. I have re-read not too many books actually. Maybe Frankenstein? Or Heart of Darkness? I was assigned those two texts multiple times.
14. I own the entire Fallen Kingdom Trilogy twice in two different editions with different covers. Yes. I’m that person.
15. My favorite character is another of those cruel questions I devised myself. Well, I really like Phedre from Kushiel’s Dart, Sabriel (duh), Daine, I can only really think of my nostalgic favorites by name.
Those are just a few of my favorite to be released covers. Check out Lili’s Post for other fabulous covers
