Summer Blog Promo Tour #3: Flo from Book Nerds Across America

So, today is the second week of the Summer Blog Promo Tour, hosted by the wonderful blog, The Book Bratz (seriously, they're awesome). This tour is exactly what it sounds like--bloggers promoting other bloggers! Every Sunday of July and August, a different blogger will be stopping by with a fun post to let you get to know more about them! And, of course, every week I will doing fun stuff on other people's blogs, so make sure to give them a gander.

Today, I'm excited to be interviewing Flo from Book Nerds Across America!

Hey Flo! Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I'm super stoked you're stopping by!

I'm not gonna ease into it. I'm gonna start with the most important question of all—are you right- or left-handed?

Whoa! You were not kidding! That was from zero to sixty in less than .5 seconds. Slow down there, partner!

Anyway, I am right-handed, which means I can sit anywhere I want at the dinner table and still worry about hitting people with my elbows because I'm just clumsy.

Do you have a pet dragon? If so, what is its name? If not, what would you name a pet dragon if you got one?

I don't have any pets, because I travel too much so anything living in my care would likely starve....except a dragon! You are giving me all kinds of ideas, Lefty. Dragons are pretty self sufficient, aren't they?! Do dragons eat alligators? I live in Florida and we have a lot of alligators around here. If I could convince my dragon to survive on a diet of lizards and gators, I think he'd be just fine.

What is a song lyric (or a few) you feel really speaks to you?

Wow, so many! I'll go with the first two that popped into my mind. From one of my most favorite songs, The Dance by Garth Brooks: “Our lives are better left to chance: I could have missed the pain, but I'd of have to miss the Dance.” When I moved away to college, a good friend of mine made me a picture with the lyrics from “When You Come Back Down” by Nickel Creek: “Take every chance you dare, I'll still be there, when you come back down.”

If you could be a character on any TV show, which TV show would you pick?

Hmm...I don't actually watch a lot of TV, so this one is a bit harder for me to think of....I'm legit blanking right now. Let me come back to this later.

According to your blog, you're a fan of quirky fictional YA guys (aren't we all??). Care to tell me a few of your favorites?

So, so many! Some of my quirky favorites are Cricket from Lola and the Boy Next Door (Stephanie Perkins); Levi from Fangirl (Rainbow Rowell); Augustus Waters from The Fault in Our Stars (John Green). Those are the three quirkiest guys I can think of off the top of my head.

How did you start blogging?

I wasn't involved in any fandoms until The Hunger Games. When I got into those books, I discovered forums and expanded my Twitter account to include new book-loving friends. I became super close with a girl named Mary. One day Mary created a book review blog for us on a whim, and I immediately set to work on decorating it. The first iteration of Book Nerds Across America was born.

What is the last book you purchased?

I believe it was Prince of Shadows by Rachel Caine.

If you could meet any one author (dead or alive) what would you say to them or ask them?

Ooo...J.K. Rowling. I would ask her how she held on to hope when she was living in her car and writing Harry Potter on napkins. It takes a strong person to persevere, to believe in something so much to see it through when the chips are down, and I admire that so much. I'd love to talk with her more about it and hear stories about what she was thinking when she came up with certain people, spells, scenes, etc.

If you could pick the next novel/series that got adapted into a movie, what would you choose?

I think the Gallagher Academy series by Ally Carter would be a cute Freeform-type show. The Lunar Chronicles would be great if it was done right, but I would be so scared to see it. Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer's Between the Lines would also be a good cheesy TV fantasy movie. Unbreakable by Kami Garcia might be cool on the big screen.

Okay, now it's time for our lightning round!

Contemporary or fantasy? Both! (Depends on my mood!)

Boots or sandals? Sandals! (I live in Florida!)

Llamas or alpacas? Llamas! (Llama, llama, duck!)

Crayons or colored pencils? Crayons! (As long as they don't revolt!:

Favorite emoji? ;-p

Song stuck in your head at the moment? Llama llama duck! (See above. I blame you, Lefty!)

Currently reading? Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare! (And loving it!)

Thanks so much for stopping by, Flo! I hope you enjoyed this interview! I did! Thanks so much for having me!
