Armchair BEA interview: Hannah from Word Lily
Book bloggers who couldn't make it to New York City for the Book Expo America are celebrating from the comfort of their homes during the Armchair BEA event online.
Today, I have the pleasure of introducing you to blogger I've been following for about a year. Hannah from Word Lily reviews a variety of genres, inspy included. And sometimes she blogs about her adorable dog Maisie whose pictures are soooo precious you'll wanna pucker your lips and speak baby talk to your computer.
Last thing you threw away:
Old label on a bubble mailer, so I could reuse the envelope to mail a book.
Your brand of toothpaste:
Three things in your purse:
Sunglasses, lip glosses, notebook (And so much else; I really need to clean it out!)
Something that will fall out of your medicine cabinet when I swing it open:
Nothing really precarious, but maybe moisturizer?
A post idea that never made your blog (and why): A joint review of Julie & Julia (book and movie) with my sister; she didn't ever finish the book.
List every book you've reviewed in 2011:
That's what I have a Books Read page on my blog for. :)
Which one's your favorite?
Book I've read in 2011, that I've reviewed? I know I gave 5 stars (out of 5) to The Mapping of Love and Death by Jacqueline Winspear ...
Your favorite not quite a curse word:
I can't pick a favorite anything, let alone words. I go through phases in my speech, but I don't think I have any. Certainly no words I speak do I intend as a substitute curse word. I really try to not use language frivolously.
One lousy job from your past:
Something you do when you're not book blogging:
I play with fiber — knit, spin, dye, card, design
What would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
I thought this was standard ... "Well done, good and faithful servant."
Hannah Nielsen has been blogging at Word Lily since early 2007. One feature she’s known for is “Words from my reading,” in which she highlights and defines unknown words she’s discovered in books. She reads from a variety of genres, but she seems to focus somewhat on literary fiction and mysteries. She’s particularly interested in well-written stories at the intersection of life and faith. Besides all things bookish, she also spends time on fibery pursuits (knitting, spinning) and with Maisie, her Old English Sheepdog.
