Armchair BEA: Introduction


Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? 

My name is Amanda and I run Go Book Yourself! At the time of writing I have only been blogging for 3 weeks but I'm already addicted :). I started blogging so I could have my own personal space to rant about books I love/hate and to meet other book lovers.

Where in the world are you blogging from? Tell a random fact or something special about your current location. Feel free to share pictures. 

I'm blogging from Ireland. It's Europe's 3rd largest Island, it's green and it rains...alot!

What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book you have read so far in 2013? 

My favorite book so far this year has been "The End of Alice" by A.M Homes. This book stays with you long after you finish reading it

If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why? 

Dr Hannibal Lecter. In my opinion the most interesting villain  ever created by an author.

What literary location would you most like to visit? Why? 

The Edge from "The edge chronicles"

I fell in love with all the amazing characters when I was younger. I still glance at the beautiful illustrations in the books every now and then. 


  1. Three weeks, Amanda! Aww! It is great you signed up for this event. You will meet a lot of new bloggers, and feel even more addicted to this community! I had no idea you were from Ireland. That is amazing stuff! And Hannibal? Really? So scary lol!

    1. Scary but you have to admit it would be interesting! He has a way of getting inside people's heads :D

    2. Yeah 3 still a baby! haha :D

  2. Ack, rain!! I'm from Scotland and i can tell you that we've had a wet one this year too. Of course that means more time to curl up with a good book.
    Good luck with your blogging adventure. I've been at it for about 6 months and I love it.

  3. Welcome to blogging! It really is quite addicting... but fun!

  4. You are so lucky to live in Ireland. I would love to visit there someday!

    (I would be afraid Dr. Lecter would want to eat me for dinner!)

  5. Woah only 3 weeks! Welcome to the book blogging community :D Ooo Ireland, always found it quite fascinating and would love to visit there some day ^^


Thank you for taking the time to read/comment on my page!
