Interview and Giveaway with Ivy, BookReaderTimes

Nov 15, 2009

* Update *
 I had the wrong list for Ivy's Characters she's in love with, so I have corrected that. Also *squuueal* did you see Larrisa Ione commented herself !!!! *faints* that is so freakin awesome !!! *sigh* Fan moment, sorry  :0)  Hope you all are enjoying the contest. Im loving the lists and hijacking some new stuff to add to me TBR list !!

Hey Everyone. I please to announce i get to do my first contest !!! *jumps up and down* exciting right !!!  Well i have the honor of getting to host my first contest thanks to Ivy over at BookReaderTimes. She helps  run BookReaderTimes and is the one sooo generously giving away the prize !! Which is " Pleasure Unbound " by: Larissa Ione. And i thought what better way to have a contest ,than to interview the one giving away the prize. So sit back, relax, and lets get to know Ivy !!!

JJBC : Have you read " Pleasure Unbound " If so what is your opinion of it? What is your favorite part?
BRT : I really love this book (I really love the whole series so far) The characters are cool and it has a few interesting twists. I feel bad for all the things Tayla has gone thru… I love Eidolon and there are other great characters in this story and in the series. My favorite part is full of spoilers… I can tell you that it was an encounter between 2 people.
JJBC : I have to say i love this entire series, I can't wait for the fouth book (Ecstasy Unveiled) to come out January 26, 2010. Once i started this book, i couldn't put any of them down !

JJBC : Tell us a little bit about yourself.
BRT : My name is Ivonne but my friends and family call me Ivy. I have always loved books and the world of fiction. I think that every book that I have read has invited me in to a new world. A world with all kinds of creatures, some are good and some are evil. But in the end it’s a world full of surprises where your imagination can run wild. Reading is my passion,. And then there is my baby  Bamby, she just turned 6.
JJBC :  I completely understand what you mean. The imagination is such a powerful tool when it comes to reading. I love seeing each world unravel itself as i get further into a series.

JJBC : What's your favourite book of all time?
BRT : I would have to say that my favorite book of all times is “Charlotte’s Web” by: E.B. White. I must have read that book a million times when I was younger… lol
JJBC : I must be honest, i have never read this book, but i do love the movie !!!

JJBC : Who are your favourite authors?
BRT : Wow... I have so many... Sherrilyn Kenyon, Patricia Briggs, J.R. Ward, Laurell K Hamilton, Yasmine Galenorn, Karen Marie Moning. I have too many to list them all.

JJBC : Whats your favorite genre to read?
BRT : Fiction

JJBC : How many books are on your tbr list right now?
BRT : My tbr list has over 100+ books. My tbr book pile has 25+ books.
JJBC :  This is not hard to believe. It seems the more people we meet on twitter,blogs,forums the more books,series,authors we seem to find out about and end up adding to our TBR Piles !

JJBC : When and why did you start your forum?
BRT : We started the forum in February 2009. It all started one night when I went out to dinner with a group of friends. I was reading a new series of Vampire books that a friend had recommended. I was so into the books that I would talk about them all the time. It was at that dinner that I thought of starting a book club. The forum was a way for us to communicate before and after book club meetings. We also wanted to discuss books with other readers from around the world.

JJBC :  Tell us a little about your forum?
BRT : Book Reader Times is a group if friends who share their love and passion for books. Through this forum we hope to find people who enjoy books and friendship as much as we do. We created this forum in hopes that different people from different places would share their thoughts about the books they read. Book Reader Times is a club based on fiction books.

JJBC :  What's been the high point of forum so far?
BRT : Connecting with other people that share the same interest in books as I do. Also meeting people from all around the world.

JJBC :  Where do you see your forum in a year from now?
BRT : A year from know I hope that we have double the amount of members we have now. I hope that our forum will become a source of information for all members. I see it as a place were readers and authors can communicate.

JJBC : If you could get stuck in a book/series, which would it be and why?
BRT : I would prefer to be stuck in a series. I would love to be stuck in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter Series. I just love the setting of their world. (I also love the Dark Hunters! They are HOT! lol)

JJBC : Ivy has recently started a post on her forum " Fictional Characters your in Love with ", and I thought it would be great to share.
BRT : Ok..... I have I really don't think I can sit here and type them all. I fall for all of them! All the Dark Hunters, Black Dagger Brothers.... I just love them all!

~Jean Claude

JJBC : I have to say there are soooo many of my own, but to name a few:
~Edward (Twilight Saga)
~Jacob (Twilight Saga)
~Rehvenge (Black Dagger BrotherHood Series, J.R. Ward)
~Lucien (Lords of the Underworld Series, Gena Showalter)
~Elijah (Nightwalkers Series, Jacquelyn Frank)

My all-time favorite fictional love is Wrath from Black Dagger Brotherhood. For a long time I also loved Richard from Anita Blake but I've now changed my love there to Nathanial. Bones from Jeaniene Frost's books is another one...and of course, I couldn't live without Eidolon. :)
