Feature Friday: Sinziana from Cafebiblioart

Welcome to Feature Friday. Today, I have Sinziana from Cafabiblioart with me.

Cherie: How did you get started in blogging about books?
Sinziana: Most of my book lover friends started one and I realized that it was an easier way to keep up with the publishing world so that is why I created my own blog. It was quite strange of me to do so because I am not a natural writer nor do I tend to do what other people do. I have to say that it was the best decision I ever made.

Cherie: I’m glad you did. I enjoy stopping by your blog. How did you come up with the name for your blog?
Sinziana: I had trouble finding the right name, I tried so many and then I remembered my business plan from 11th grade and I decided that I should use the same name I came up with years ago. I thought it was fitting since I planned to post about art, books and tea.

Cherie: What’s your favorite part about blogging?
Sinziana: My favorite part about blogging is that I get to meet new people who love the same thing that I do and also that give me feedback on my writing and advice on other matters that I post about.

Cherie: That’s one of my favorite parts, too. Do you have any pet peeves that make you want to put down the book your reading?
Sinziana: Sadly no.

Cherie: What type of books do you enjoy?
Sinziana: I enjoy reading mostly New Adult, Contemporary romance and Erotica.

Cherie: Do you mind books with similar ideas to other books? Similar concepts, backgrounds, or retellings?
Sinziana: Honestly no. I imagine each book as real story so it makes sense that out there are many people/couples that have similar stories but their personalities make their romance unique. I love reading similar books because I get to compare the characters that come from a similar background and go through something similar. I get to learn their reaction and which is the best approach. 

Cherie: That’s a great way of looking at similar concepts. Do you like when your favorite books are made into movies, and why?
Sinziana: In a way yes, In a way no. I love seeing how another person interprets the story I loved so much, but on the other hand he or she might ruin my image. I like it better when the director makes some changes and the movies is not identical to the book. Please, don’t shoot me!

Cherie: It’s your birthday, and your friends got you a giant cake. What character do you hope pops out of your cake and what book is he/her from?
Sinziana: Ava from This Man as she probably worked with one of my neighbors and I want to her to introduce me J

Cherie: If you could choose to be any character from a book, who would it be and why?
Sinziana: I would choose Julia from Gabriel’s Inferno. I am very much like her, but she is also want I aspire to be some day.

Cherie: Try to answer the following questions in five words or less.
