Hiya!! This week we're visiting with Tara co-author of Halos and Horns Book Blog. Tara contacted me after reading The Truth in Lies where her review had me both giggling and blushing. We've found that we have a shared love for many things, including Harry Potter and vagina jokes. She's been an amazing supporter of me and my work, and I feel honored to be able to call her a friend. I look forward to finally meeting this funny, amazing woman in July, 2015 during the Kiss and Tell Author Event in Harrisburg, PA. So, let's get this party started.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hello I’m Tara and I am a book addict.. with no plan to rehab… lol no I’m a wife, mommy, labor and delivery nurse and an awesome blogger!!
Where are you from?
The Keystone State… Pa baby right down the road from where the Office is from Scranton.
What do you do besides read and promote authors? (which by the way, thank you so much for all you do. We authors can’t express our appreciation enough)
Oh you are most welcome!! But I’m a mommy of 2 preschoolers and a wife of a solider and my paying gig is a labor and delivery nurse
Married? Divorced? Single? In a serious relationship with your current book boyfriend?
Married it will be 11 wonderful years on 9/27
What made you decide to become a blogger?
Well that’s easy, I love smut! Plus I get to meet and promote all the awesome authors I love.
Were there any blogs that inspired you when you started?
Little to no people know that I was part of The Dirty Hoes Book Blog last year which is where I started, then I moved to Halos and Horns. I had the awesome pleasure to meet and become friends with Ana’s Attic this year at Wicked Book Weekend
What is your favorite part about being a blogger?
Mostly meeting and getting to know all the authors that I look up to. But it’s also getting to read unknown and or new authors, I love finding authors that I never heard of and falling in love with them.
What are you currently reading?
Sasha by Rae Matthews
What is your favorite genre(s)?
Erotica and just about all romance, I’m not into paranormal romance but I’ve been known to dabble.
Name a few (and I use that term liberally) of your favorite books.
Duh your of course! LOL!
This Man Series by Jodi Ellen Malpas
With Me series by Kristen Proby
The Siren by Tiffany Riesz
Do you have any strange habits or rituals you do when taking on a new book to read for a requested review?
I read the blurb and that’s it… I don’t look at the cover because new books from new authors may not have a great cover yet, even though that’s what helped my decision on choosing a book before I was a blogger. No other real rituals but I try to choose books that make me feel, I love feeling a range of emotions when reading, it helps me fall in love even more with the book and the author.
I’m an emotional reader. If I don’t connect with the characters, I struggle reading even the most well written books. What is something that you feel is necessary in every book you read?
I need that connection, I need to feel like I’ve met or could meet these people, maybe even be their friends. I need to feel the pain or the struggles that they are facing and I need to connect with why they are the way they are. Even if I’ve never dealt with the problem or issue they have.
Hollywood called; they want you to cast the roles for the latest book you reviewed. What is that book and who would your dream cast be?
Boy that’s a really tough one, I may skip it and come back later.
But if I had to cast someone in a role I saw them playing it would be Ian Somerhalder as my Christian Grey.. we all have our opinions on who should play him and Ian is my Christian always has been always will be.
What was your biggest fan girl (or boy) moment?
When I met Tara Sivec and Ella Dominguez at WBW… I fan girled hard over both of them.
You’ve been selected by to travel the universe. What is the first planet you’d choose to go to?
Mars for no other reason than it’s red and that happens to be a favorite color of mine. I know that’s a real educated answer, but it’s the best I have.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
I would hope the chicken got laid and came first!
You’ve been given the chance to be on any reality television show of your choosing. Which one would it be and why?
Jersey Shore because I want to be in the car crash that no one can look away from!!! Or maybe 16 and pregnant so I can tell them wrap that up!! I’m 33 and still have a hard time being a mom I couldn’t imagine being a mom at 16!! The mom in me wants to yell at them!! lol
