Feature Friday: Joana Arteaga of Always Jo Art

Hi every and welcome to Feature Friday. Joana Arteaga from AlwaysJo Art is with us today. Her blog is filled with great reviews and giveaways that you don't want to miss.

Please help me welcome Joana.

Cherie: How did you get started in blogging about books?
Joana: When I started my blog I wanted it to be like a diary for me but that wasn't working out because I never made time for my blog. I started wanting to write reviews and since I love to read I decided to review books.  And I love letting other book lovers like me know about any books I think they might like.

Cherie: How did you come up with the name for your blog? 
Joana: It was easy because I use alwaysjoart for everything. Jo Art is my name but it's shortened so I'm always Jo Art!

Cherie: What’s your favorite part about blogging? 
Joana: It makes me feel like I'm doing something important (even if it's not)

Cherie: You’re helping readers find books. It’s important! Do you have any pet peeves that make you want to put down the book your reading?
Cherie: Not really, I don't think I have ever read a book that I hated. Every single book I have read so far I would give it at least 3 stars. I'm not sure if it's because I love books, or I have been lucky, or maybe I just know how to pick good books to read.

Cherie: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, or retellings?
Joana: No I don't, I actually love retellings. I don't think there's anything wrong with getting ideas from other author's or books as long as it's not exactly the same.

Cherie: What type of books do you enjoy?
Joana: I love all types of books.

Cherie: Teeheehee, I love that answer. Do you like when your favorite books are made into movies, and why? 
Joana: Yes because I get to actually see the characters and the story instead of just seeing it in my head. I also like to compare the book to the movie because I know they are never ever ever exactly the same.

Cherie: Okay, for the rest of the questions, try to answer them in five words or less:
