1.     My name’s Emily Alfano
2.     I’m from Wisconsin
3.     I got into blogging after I joined the book community on Twitter.  I had Twitter for a while but I never realized how passionate everyone from the book blogging world was and once I started following a few popular book bloggers, I knew I wanted in.
4.     My current blog name is a new one.  I used to co-blog at another site and I recently launched my current site, Rabbit Hole Reviews, just last month.  I’m really excited and so far everyone has been super supportive about it.  If you want to know how I came up with the name (it’s a rather long story) check out my “About Rabbit Hole Reviews” page.
5.     My favorite genre is YA, but more specifically I LOVE anything fantasy or dystopian.  This past year I’ve also been obsessed with contemporary, which was something I never used to read that much of, and I’m always looking for new recommendations in that category.
6.     I’ve been on Other than reviews I love to do participate in blog tours, TTT, WoW, and my own featured post “Book and a Bath.”
7.     Best blogging experience so far was getting to meet my blogging friends in real life.
8.     My favorite thing about the book blogging community is how close everyone is.  Even if you’re just Internet friends, you can still support someone from afar and I think that’s what’s great about this Internet community. 
9.     A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas,  Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare, Heartless by Marissa Meyer, The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater, and The Rose and the Dagger by Renee Adhieh
10. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, Sabriel by Garth Nix, The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black, Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Page, and Landline by Rainbow Rowell
11. The Arcana Chronicles by Kresley Cole. I cannot say enough good things about this series and I’m so glad my friend recommended this to me last year.
12.  Cath from Fangirl. We have so much in common and I could see myself being best friends with someone like her in real life.
13. SO MANY. Why am I limited to just one? Ok, if I had to pick I’ll always love Rowan from Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
14.  Aelin (Throne of Glass Series), Tamlin (ACOTAR), Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles), Evie (The Arcana Chronicles), and Scarlet (Scarlet Series).
15. Other than books/reading I love writing, running, and music.  I’m currently training for another half marathon and I am also considering a triathlon at some point this year. 
16. I could honestly shop for anything under the sun and be the happiest camper.  I’m a bit of a fashion freak, as well as a makeup junkie.  Hour of truth: one of my weird quirks is collecting jackets, ESPECIALLY leather (pleather, actually) jackets.  I have 18 jackets and I have a closet JUST for my jackets!
17. This is a hard one! When I said I love music earlier, I really meant it. I listen to most genres of music. Hmmm… anything by the Script? I know that’s not really specific but I don’t have a favorite song.
18. Book series I would LOVE to see turned into a film would be The Splintered Series by A.G. Howard.
19.  Well other than the fact that it would be full of books ceiling to floor, I would love a rolling ladder (who wouldn’t right?), a coffee bar, and lots of artwork.  I’m really into any type of book related artwork and I would love to have a whole room just to be able to buy more.  My current room at home is sadly full now so I keep seeing artwork online that I want to buy but nowhere to hang it.
20. J.K. Rowling. Is this even a question? LOL.

  1. Illuminea is a great book!
    That's really cool that you're a runner. My sister is too. Good luck for your half-marathon (and the triathlon if you end up doing one this year)

  4. A rolling ladder would be so awesome for a library! I don't know how I didn't think of putting Aelin on my apocalypse squad! Fail! She would be awesome to have, she's so ferocious! I'm also really excited for ACOMAF and The Rose and the Dagger! Those books need to come out like, yesterday! :)

  5. I've been curious about The Arcana Chronicles! I'm glad to see you recommended them here. It makes me want to at least give them a shot when I get the chance to. Also, I totally picked Aelin for my apocalypse squad as well. She'd be such an asset! Happy Love-a-Thon! <3
