2016 Book Blogger Love-a-Thon

Dates: February 20, 12AM EST – February 22, 12AM EST

Hosted by: Alexa (Alexa Loves Books), Cee (The Novel Hermit), Hazel (Stay Bookish) & Mel (The Daily Prophecy)

I did the love-a-thon last year and thought I would give it a go again this year. The first chat is a little early for me and so are the other things, but we’ll see how much I get done. I’m just hoping to spread the love! I hope this questionnaire let’s you guys get to know me a little better!



1. What’s your name? — erica <3

2. Where in the world are you blogging from? — the great U.S. of A.

3. How did you get into blogging in the first place? i felt like i needed a place to let me feelings out about books and none of my friends back home really read, so blogging it was — i was super nervous at first, but i found christy really quick and she helped me so much. i couldn’t be happier with my decision to start blogging!

4. How did you come up with your blog name? — christy had her blog, christy’s book addiction, and when i joined her she thought she would change it up since it wasn’t just christy anymore…we thought about it for some time and thought novel ink not only tied in with books, but christy and i both have tattoos so it fit in. 

5. What genre do you read and review the most on your blog? — i’m actually going to be doing a post about this soon (my surprise of a favorite genre), but what i am probably known for is contemporary. i have always loved contemporary and romance and those are my happy place…they definitely are what i review the most of.

6. What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews? — we do a novel rewind where christy and i share what we did the past two weeks, top ten tuesday, and we like to do discussion posts from time to time.

7. Best blogging experience so far? — when colleen hoover replied to an email of mine when i just started blogging, that made me smile so big.

8. Favorite thing about the blogging community? — i love how i can be myself and not worry about being judged – it’s my safe haven.

9. Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2016! — Throne of Glass (#5), The Rose and the Dagger — really those are the two i am most excited for…there are others, but i just want to focus on those two.

10. Name the 5 books you want to read this 2016 that you didn’t get to in previous years! — a court of thorns and roses, an ember in the ashes, november 9, the raven boys, requiem.

11. What’s an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read? — the revenge playbook.

12. Which book boy or girl would be your book BFF? — skylar from i’ll meet you there

13. Which book boy or girl would be your book boyfriend/girlfriend? — peeta mellark 

14. Who would you recruit for your apocalypse squad (5 characters max) — katniss everdeen, harry potter, neville longbottom, luna lovegood & celaena sardothien

15. Apart from reading, what are your other hobbies or interests? — yesterday i actually bought my first set to start calligraphy and i’m excited for that, i love design and binge watching netflix!

16. Apart from book shopping, what else do you like shopping for? — knick knacks for the house or my room!

17. At a party, the DJ suddenly changes the song – and it’s your song. What song would be playing? — as of right now, Pillowtalk by Zayn Malik.

18. 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 would love to see maybe someday turned into a film…seeing what they would do with the characters would be amazing.

19. What would your dream library look like? — it would be all white bookshelves, filled with all the books with a nook on all four sides of the room…one outlooking the beach, the other a forest, one leading into another room & the other showing the gorgeous houses of greece. ah, now i want to be in this library.

20. Author you want to meet and sit down to tea with? — although you guys might hurt me for admitting this…i haven’t read the harry potter books, but i have seen the movies…even with that being said i would love to have tea with j.k. rowling.

I had a blast writing this up and letting you guys get to know me some more. In the comments below answer one of the questions above so I can get to know you more <3 Have a wonderful love-a-thon!

  1. Cee

    Yeeeee, so glad you can join us again, Erica!

    My friend absolutely LOVED The Revenge Playbook because all the girls coming together so I’m definitely gonna read that as soon as my TBR pile lightens a little bit.


  2. Contemporary is also my favourite! I’ve been dying to read The Revenge Playbook and I’m glad you’re such a fan. It was one of my most anticipated of last year and I cannot wait to get to it in 2016. Have you read Rachael’s debut? If not, I highly recommend it. It was one of my 2014 faves 🙂

  3. Peeta Mellark is amazing <3 I love him so much, he's such a babe! Yes, maybe someday would be amazing as a movie, I'd love to see it! I'd love to try calligraphy. Last week, for my birthday, my boyfriend got me a quill, I'm so excited to start using it! Do you plan to read the HP books? You should 😉

  4. This is such a fun post! Okay, I am so excited for the two books you mentioned you can’t wait for. I am also really excited for the sequel to An Ember in the Ashes and Walk on Earth a Stranger (i know they have titles and covers already! so exciting!). I think my song would be Cake by the Ocean by DNCE or The Hills by The Weekend, for now. I mean my favorite song(s) change weekly. I am super into buying stuff for my house right now too. I am on a pillow kick, but who knows what’s next. So glad to see you are doing the #LoveaThon

  5. Loved your apocalypse squad!! Hope you get around to reading Harry Potter soon, because if you already love them, you will even more. Also – The Raven Boys! I love that series so so much.

    I also just added The Revenge Playbook to my Goodreads – it looks really interesting and I wasn’t even aware of it before.

    Hope you enjoy the Love-A-Thon!

  6. I love your blog! It’s so cute!!! I actually thought of putting Neville in my apocalypse squad but sort of thought maybe someone else can replace him. Now I feel awful. HAHAHA! Also, I can never get into liking Zayn’s Pillowtalk though I think it’s really good. I’ve only listened to it once.

  7. I participated last year too and I think it’s such an awesome way to get to know more lovely bloggers. 🙂 I seriously need to get to the Raven Boys too. I’ve heard nothing but good things. I always thought that I was the last one to jump on the bandwagon, but I’m glad to see I’m not!

  8. I agree with #8. I thought that my blog was going to be something that no one ever saw and I have been pleasantly surprised with the bookblogging community and feel so accepted, even when others disagree with my opinions.

    #7 would have made me jump for joy lol!

    #10 – November 9 was my first CoHo book and it blew me away. Hope you can squeeze this one into your reading this year

    #13 – right? I was so mad at Katniss..

    Happy to have learned more about you! Happy reading 🙂

  9. Throne of glass 5 and The rose and the dagger are two of my highly anticipated books too. I NEED THEM.
    I hope you get to read A court of thorns and roses soon, it was good 😀 I love the idea of having a library with 4 different views!

  10. Ellen

    How amazing to get an email from Colleen! Yay! Haha. I can’t imagine how exciting that would be. 🙂

    Totally agree with #18 & 20 🙂

  11. Erica!! I’m so pleased you’re joining in again for this year’s Love-a-Thon <3 I definitely can't wait for Throne of Glass #5. I want to know how Sarah is going to continue this story! I also think it's exciting that you're going to be reading ACOTAR (!) and An Ember in the Ashes. I really loved both of those novels! Happy Love-a-Thon!

  12. Even though I already knew the story of how this blog went from Christy’s Book Addiction to Novel Ink, I love it. I think it’s so sweet that both of you were able to bond over your love of books and being inked. 🙂

    I still haven’t heard “Pillowtalk.” I might have to go on Youtube as soon as the chat is over and listen to it.

    You know… I’ve been rather partial to wooden bookshelves for a while, but after seeing all these white shelves that people have, I’m rethinking my library design. I don’t want the cheap white shelves like you can get from Walmart or Target, but I might like a really pale wood or something with a white paint or stain.

  13. I love this blog name, I’ve always thought it was super unique and cool, and now knowing the backstory behind it, and how you both have tattoos just makes it so much more awesome! 🙂
    I’m also looking forward to Throne of Glass #5….but I have to finish Heir of Fire and Queen of Shadows first!!
    Peeta would be a great choice for a book boyfriend – he’s so caring and sweet! 🙂
    Hope your LoveAThon was FANTASTIC! 🙂

  14. Hello, Erica! I need to read The Raven Boys as well, which I’m hoping to do in March before the last book comes out. The Scorpio Races was written beautifully, so I know I’ll love TRB. Or so I hope! Also, you must read HARRY POTTER!
