When and why did you start your blog?

When and why did you start your blog? My blog is only about a month old now and I started it for a few reasons. The main one had to do with my kids and when I was first trying to pick books for them. It was terrible! I would go to a book store and look down rows of board books, some had pretty illustrations and others were just about teaching and some I didn't even have any interest in looking at. A lot of the time I would find a stack of books that once were home I would discover my son only liked one or two of them. Absolutely frustrating! That's why on my site you'll see all sorts of books, not just popular or award winning. I want to help people find the right books for them and their children. Including what may be appropriate (according to me of course, so take it with a grain of salt) at what age for both boys and girls. Like my recent review of The Maze Runner by James Dashner, I loved the book and I'm looking forward to sharing it with my son some day, but I made the disclaimer that it probably won't be until he's around 12 or so because of the violence in the book. Just my opinion, but I thought it might help for some people looking for guidance. What is your blog all about? Any cool features you want to share? A couple of neat things about the blog are who the reviewers are and a new feature I have called "When I Was Young". The reviewers include, myself, The Turkeybird and Littlebug. I wanted to share their points of view, even if they are little, I wanted to give them a voice when it came to helping others in choosing books. The new feature I'm starting, "When I Was Young", is a way to feature other book bloggers in a unique way, by having them share a book from their youth that got them excited about reading. This will give us all a chance to get to know everyone a little better and learn about some great books we may have forgotten. What are some of your favorite genres and-or books currently? Personally, I love what's coming out of the young adult genre right now and a few of my favorite authors are Cassandra Clare, Holly Black and Suzanne Collins. How do you find out about the books you read? A lot of it comes from reading other review sites, but I also spend time reading authors blogs, look around various internet book sellers sites, and of course the library here in our new home town.
