What do you review? YA Fiction of all kinds.
How did you get the name for your blog? Well, I get most of my books from the library and I'm there a lot. When I was brainstorming ideas for a name, The Library Lurker just popped into my head. I did a search to see if anyone had used it for a book blog before, because surely it must have been taken, but the only link was to a blog that no one had ever posted on.
How would you describe your blog? My blog is a reflection of me. The colors that it is (bright green and purple) are two of my favorites. I don't have a ton of clutter on my sidebar because I like all of the focus to be on my actual posts and don't like things messy in real life. I have a loose schedule for my weekly post outlines because I can't stand not having a plan.
What kind of blogger are you? Very organized or fly by the seat of your pants? I'm a little bit of both. Like I said above, I have a loose outline of what I'm going to post in the near future, but if I think that something unscheduled is worth posting I won't hesitate to.
What is your favorite review or post from your own blog? Definitely my opinion post My Thoughts on Size in YA. It's the first time that I've ever really expressed my opinion about something like that on my blog, and I was proud of myself for actually posting it. I'm generally pretty reserved, so putting my opinion out there for others to criticize was huge for me.
Your favorite blog? I like all of the usuals (you know the ones!), and I also really like Katie's Book Blog, she's so nice! Erika of Moonlight Book Reviews started a little bit after me, and her blog is great! But really, any book blog is my favorite blog. I just love reading about books.
What are you reading right now? I'm planning on starting The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting once I get done with all this bloggy stuff. I'm really excited to read it!
Can you give me a picture of either your TBR pile or your bookshelves? This is my TBR bookshelf! That does include the books on top, but the books on the floor I've read, one pile is for giveaway/trade/sell, the others I'm keeping. Now I just need to go sign up for the event!
