Welcome to Armchair BEA 2014. This is a week of bookish blogging fun for all those people who aren’t at Book Expo America.

My 5 questions:

Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. — so we can connect more online.

I am reading and exercise and quilting with pets thrown in until someone somewhere does something stupid and then I go on a rant.

On Instagram and Twitter I’m @dvmheather. I check Instagram daily but I always forget about Twitter.

What genre do you read the most? I love to read because ___________________ .

I read a lot of urban fantasy and historical fiction. I like the escapism of fantasy. I love history so historical fiction is an easy way to learn about different eras. If the book blurb uses the words “funny” or “witty”, I’m in.

What was your favorite book read last year? What’s your favorite book so far this year?

My favorite so far this year is The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. Last year’s favorite was Devil in the Grove by Gilbert King. That was a nonfiction book about a court case in Florida that was so outrageous that you had to keep reminding yourself that it was true.
