Feature Friday: Miki with Lecture toute une Aventure

I recently found Miki’s blog and I’m glad I did. I’m even more thrilled that she agreed to be featured on my blog. 

For those of us who need a little help with our French, Miki’s blog translate to:
Reading an Adventure
because reading allows you to dream, discover, marvel …

I love that. J

Without further ado, let’s get to know her.

Cherie: How did you get started in blogging about books?
Miki: I was following several blogs and I really enjoyed the book blogging community, I admired it.  Since I have really a few people who love to read around me, I thought that I could try to share my opinion online like those I admired.

Cherie: That’s a great reason to start blogging. How did you come up with the name for your blog?
Miki: When I read a book, if I really enjoy it, I get so immersed that I’m in the story. For someone who prefers to stay inside, it’s a wonderful way to escape. There are so many adventures to be lived. I wanted to show how rich a book can be and how much it can offer to the readers, reading can be fun!
It’s also a little reference to the roleplaying club I’m in “Adventures’Club”

Cherie: I’m a lot like you in that I love to get swept into new adventures. What’s your favorite part about blogging?
Miki: The community, I love how the readers/ bloggers are attentive to others and how they go on their way to help when needed. I’ve made some great friends with whom I have so much in common that gets frightening^^

Cherie: Do you have any pet peeves that make you want to put down the book your reading?
Miki: Not really when I start a book I have to finish it, but I won’t deliberately take a book where the character sleeps around for example.

Cherie: What type of books do you enjoy?
Miki: Urban fantasy, paranormal mostly but also some steampunk, fantasy, YA and romantic suspense (yes I do read a lot of different genres^^;;)

Cherie: Variety is always good. Do you like when your favorite books are made into movies, and why?
Miki: No, I don’t like when they modify characters to fit the audience wishes or changes important elements. (I was so disappointed with Faramir that wasn’t a paladin anymore and wanted the ring.)

Cherie: If you could choose to be any character from a book, who would it be and why?
Miki: Mercy Thompson from the series by Patricia Briggs. I would love to meet the werewolves and the friendly fae. Also to speak with some ghosts, and I would have Adam to protect me which is a great bonus. Being able to shift into an animal without any pain and at will is also tempting.

Cherie: I’m going to have to check out her books. Try to answer the following questions in five words or less. If you start a book that isn’t grabbing your attention, how far into the book will you read before you put it down? Then end

Who’s your favorite book dad? Adam Hauptman

Secret crush? Shessomaru

Do you believe in love at first sight? Attraction yes, love no (it needs time)

Have you ever experienced that head-over-heels, tingly, have-to-get-to-know-someone feeling yourself? Not yet

Are you drawn to the good guy or the bad guy?  I can’t answer

If you had all the money and time in the world, where would your dream vacation be? USA, to attend the BEA

Are you a morning person or an evening person? neither
