Tasha from Truth Beauty Freedom and Books

Today we welcome yet another co-creator of Book Bloggers International - Tasha of Truth Beauty Freedom and Books!  Keep reading to find out more about what makes Tasha and her blog unique!


What is the name of your book blog?
I have two: Truth Beauty Freedom and Books, and The Project Gutenberg Project

How long have you been blogging?
Hm, about five or six years I'd guess.

What genres do you write about most, and why?
I love romance and mystery, and some sci-fi/fantasy (as long as it has romance). I'm just really interested in romance and mystery, I don't know why.

What's your earliest memory of reading?
Probably my dad reading to me when I was little. My favorite book was The Aligator Song.

What was the first book you read over and over?
Either The Ivy Tree by Mary Stewart or Here Comes the Sun by Emilie Loring. I would reread them every summer.

What book have you re-read the most?
No idea! I think it's a toss-up between Night Train to Memphis by Elizabeth Peters and The Secret Circle by LJ Smith.

What's your favorite place to read?

Do you have any reading accessories you can't do without?
A lamp? Probably my cell phone because I like to live-tweet books.

Finish the sentence: My bookshelves are...

My TBR pile is...
Theoretically endless.

What's a book that's changed your life?
Maybe Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.

One book you like that no one else seems to?
Every book? lol Probably The Secret Diaries of Miss Miranda Cheever by Julia Quinn.

How about a book that you dislike and everyone else seems to love?
Seraphina. Sorry, guys, just don't get it.

What's one book that intimidates you?
Anna Karenina, or really any Russian tome.

If you could go to any literary destination, where would you go?
Tough question! I'd love to go to the Shakespeare festival in Utah, or Scotland.

How about non-book related hobbies? What do you do when you don't feel like reading?
Mainly write or watch TV. I also love to hike and ski.

What's your favorite book to movie adaptation?
I'm thinking Rebecca.

Tell us a bit about your book blog. What makes it unique?
Is it unique? Thanks! ;) Probably my posts on art is what makes TBFB unique; that and the different kinds of books I read. For the PGP blog, I only review books in the public domain and try to read ones I've never heard of, so there're a lot of "lost classics" on there.

What are 3 of your must-read blogs?
You should definitely check out Tif's and Rebecca's blogs!

What is your reading personality? (via quiz at
I'm an eclectic reader. Shocking!
