Featuring: Jordin from A Bottomless Book Bag

Today please welcome Jordin, who blogs at A Bottomless Book Bag.

What's the meaning behind the name of your book blog?
I was inspired by Hermione's bag in Deathly Hallows. I liked the idea of being able to reach into a bottomless bag filled with books. While my blog is in no way bottomless yet, I do hope to post reviews for all the books I read.

How long have you been blogging?
Technically, I first posted in November 2013, but I didn't make that second post until February 2014 when I start blogging way more consistently.

Tell us a bit about your book blog. What makes it unique?
I'm still trying to figure out where exactly I fit in amongst all the book blogs out there. Mostly, I have been reviewing young adult books on my blog and participating in a meme here or there. But I have started a newish feature called "Let's Talk about the Ending" where I can rant and rave about the endings of books.

What genres do you write about most, and why?
I mostly review Young Adult books, but I've been trying to incorporate a few adult books too. I probably read fantasy and contemporary YA the most, but I also like dystopians, paranormal, retellings, and mystery/thrillers.

What's one book you think everyone should read?
It's not really one book, but one author: Tamora Pierce. She's written sooooo many books. A lot of them focus on strong women and are coming of age stories. It's fantasy, but I honestly think anyone will appreciate her books... well mainly any female :)

Writing in books: Yes or hell to the no?
It depends... I would write in some of my books for school and college, but I just can't bring myself to do it in my fun books.

If you could go to any literary destination, where would you go?
Hogwarts :)

What is your reading personality? (via quiz at http://www.bookbrowse.com/quiz/)
The All-Rounder

Your responses showed you fitting equally into all four reading personalities:

Involved Reader: You don't just love to read books, you love to read about books. For you, half the fun of reading is the thrill of the chase - discovering new books and authors, and discussing your finds with others.
Exacting Reader: You love books but you rarely have as much time to read as you'd like - so you're very particular about the books you choose.
Serial Reader: Once you discover a favorite writer you tend to stick with him/her through thick and thin.
Eclectic Reader: You read for entertainment but also to expand your mind. You're open to new ideas and new writers, and are not wedded to a particular genre or limited range of authors.
