Meet The Blogger - Books 4 Teens

Hiya! Another Thursday, another blogger comes face to face with my questions for Meet The Blogger. This week's blogger is Jesse from Blog 4 Teens. Please check out his blog at

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging on the 28th January 2010 with a post mainly to try and get my theme working properly!

What made you start blogging?
I thought it would be a nice way to keep a record of what I'd read all in one place and a place to record what I thought about them.

What was the first book you reviewed for your blog and what was your reaction to it?
*Goes and double checks*. It was the first in the Beautiful Dead series, Jonas. I found the idea of it very interesting but a little slow to start – by the end though I couldn't put it down.

When was the first time you realised you were a Book Blogger?
Am I? There are so many fab book bloggers out there (you included!) that I don't think I'm ready to count myself up there with you all just yet.

How much of your time a week do you spend blogging?
Um, it varies week by week, but I would say not more than a couple of hours – it's gone down a lot since I largely automated the Book Reviews This Week post.

Has your taste in book genres changed since starting the blog?
I'd say it's grown a lot wider, I used to mainly read paranormal but now I love dystopian, urban fantasy, comedy, romance. I'd give anything a try :)

What book are you reading at the moment?
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

What book has got you very excited or made you cry?
Ooh! That's hard. I got very, very excited about Delirium by Lauren Oliver (after reading Before I Fall, I couldn't wait for it) I also got very excited about Tamsyn Murray's My So-Called books (is naming 4 cheating hehe – sorry!) – they are so fab and funny, I just love Tamsyn's writing.

Have you read any book that you disliked so much you threw it across the room?
Hehe, not yet (and I hope I don't)

What advice would you give to anyone who wants to take part or what to set up a book blog?
Go for it and take part in the community, it's so welcoming and friendly and if you ever need any help there's always some one on hand.

Now, to ask five fun quick-fire questions. What song are you listening to right now?
Ok, now don't laugh – High School Musical 1 & 2

MySpace, Facebook or Twitter?
Twitter – I've never got on with MySpace and I keep forgetting about Facebook.

Hardback, paperbacks or eBooks?

Letters, phone, texting or emailing?

Zombies or unicorns?
Hmm, good question – Unicorns are fab majestic creatures so I'll go for them :)


  1. Great interview! Jonas was one of my first YA reviews too. I posted it on my euro crime blog first (crime written by a UK-er -so sort of fitted) but then added it to my YA blog when I set it up a few months later.

  2. I still haven't read the Beautiful Dead series. Lovely to know more about you Jesse.

  3. awesome interview! though sorry, I have to laugh at what you're listening too!

  4. Another super cute person that I totally <3 and Jesse yes you are a book blogger and a really good one so don't you forget it

  5. Thanks for hosting a great feature (and letting me take part) :D
