BBI With Christie from The Fiction Enthusiast

Hello and welcome to another Book Blogger Interrogation! I have had the pleasure of getting to know a number of very cool book bloggers from all over the blogosphere. I thought it would be fun to put them under the heat lamp so to speak and get some answers to some fun questions. Today I want you to meet Christie from The Fiction Enthusiast.  

1.Tell me the number one reason you love to read.
It’s an escape! With books I’m able to visit places I’ll most likely never see in my lifetime.

2.What is it about sharing your reviews that keeps you going?
I love meeting other book lovers, and sharing opinions (positive or negative) about a book I’ve read. My real life circle of family and friends doesn’t contain many readers, so the internet is my main book discussion outlet.

3.Who is your all-time favorite author?
Three way tie between Patricia Briggs, Karen Marie Moning, and Charlaine Harris. For Young Adult novels I love Suzanne Collins. I’m also a huge fangirl when it comes to Richelle Mead and Jeaniene Frost. Oops..sorry you just meant one right? It is impossible to choose.

4.What is your all-time favorite book (single or series)?
The Hunger Games and Catching Fire are both amazing. I also love the Mercy Thompson series, Fever series, and Sookie Stackhouse series. The Agency Trilogy by Y .S Lee is another fabulous favorite of mine.

5.If you could pick one fictional character and bring them to life, who would it be?
Just one! This is always such a difficult question. Last time I was asked I chose Peeta so let me pick another favorite. Bran Cornick from the Mercy Thompson series. He is the epitome of the Alpha Male, and I feel like we don’t see nearly enough of his character in the books.

6.Do you always finish a book, even if you know you don’t like it half way in? Yes! I wish I didn't but if I’m more than a few chapters in I can't quit. Sometimes I'll put it down, and try again after reading something else.

7.Do you own an eReader? If yes, why? If no, why not?
Yes, I actually own two. I'm a gadget junkie. We move around every few years, and I can't always take books with me. It's usually months before we're settled so I like have a digital library on hand to keep me company.

8.What is your all-time single favorite genre to read?
This constantly changes with my mood. The ones I primarily read are Paranormal Romance, Historical Romance, Dystopian, Urban Fantasy, and anything Young Adult. I especially love fantasy novels with a historical setting.

9.Here’s your chance to plug your book review blog, twitter, facebook, etc. You know, make a general plea for people to like you…

You can find my blog http://thefictionenthusiast.blogspot.com/ I read and review a variety of genres. I’m also on Twitter @mamabookworm I always love to chat with other book lovers, and receive recommendations for my constantly growing TBR list.

I hope you all enjoyed getting to know Christie @ The Fiction Enthusiast - I sure did. Come back next week to meet


  1. Thanks Pam! I had a great time answering all your questions :)

  2. Thanks so much for participating. I think we might be twin reading souls - my answers would be so similar to yours - love Bran too, although I might go with Adam because well YUM!

  3. I must agree Adam is delish too & Samuel. Briggs really knows how to create characters that make a girl swoon :)

  4. That was awesome. Two eReaders? Cool!

    You move twice a year? Major bummer. I recently moved and I don't know how you do it.


I love love love love to hear what other people think - share your thoughts so we can start a dialogue!
