I know I haven’t been very active the past couple of months, but once I saw a mention for Armchair BEA 2014 on Twitter, I knew it was the perfect way to kickoff getting back into blogging. This is my third year doing Armchair BEA, and it’s one of my favorite blogging events. This year I’m hoping to meet some new blogging friends, maybe even some writing friends, and check out a lot of new blogs.
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
My name is Leeanna, which is pretty obvious from my blog’s name. When I happened to find out that leeanna.me was available a couple of years ago, I just couldn’t resist. I think it’s unique, but I do have the same problem I have in real life — not everyone spells it properly.
I originally got into book blogging because I used to write book reviews for a newspaper, and I missed it. That blog lasted about 6 months, but I wasn’t involved in the community at all, so it was a lonely endeavor. A year or so later I found the book blogosphere, so I started back up. That was in February 2012, and while I’ve had periods of inactivity due to real life stuff, I think I’ll be blogging for a long time to come.
As for location, I’m in the US, in Ohio. Anyone else hail from NE Ohio?
Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. — so we can connect more online.
One sentence, that’s a bit tricky, but I’ll go with: Leeanna.me: A Little Bit of Everything.
I read a wide variety of genres, from young adult to science fiction to a bit of romance. For a long time, I’ve also been thinking about expanding my book blog to be more personal and to include some posts on other interests of mine, from finance to writing to geek diy and so on.
What genre do you read the most? I love to read because ___________________ .
I read almost every genre, except mystery, horror, or western. But if a book in one of those catches my eye, it’s fair game.
I read because I literally don’t know what I would do if I didn’t. Ever since I could read, I’ve had a book in hand, and that will never change. I love to read because it’s an escape, an adventure, a way to learn, etc.

My favorite quote comes from HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS: “It’s real for us.” —Severus Snape
And that’s it! See ya’ll tomorrow.
