QUESTIONAIRE:

  1. What’s your name? Liza Wiemer

  2. Where in the world are you blogging from? Milwaukee, WI

  3. How did you get into blogging in the first place? I was working on my first YA novel and I wanted to blog about YA hot topics, books, helpful tips.

  4. How did you come up with your blog name? WhoRU Blog didn’t start out as mainly a book blog. But the title still works for books. Books have shaped me throughout my life and continue to do so. I like to ask authors questions that lead to helping people think about who they are.

  5. What genre do you read and review the most on your blog?  I read it all genres and love them. But, I will say that I have a tendency to lean toward contemporary. When I listen to audiobooks, I love fantasy.

  6. What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from reviews? Giveaways, interviews, cover reveals, Q & A, occasionally topics that are different. The annual International Holiday #Readathon, BEA, The Novel Cuisine Luncheon for bloggers, authors, librarians and teachers.

  7. Best blogging experience so far? Meeting others at book events & sharing our love of books through our blogs, Twitter etc.

  8. Favorite thing about the blogging community? I love it when a blogger shares their passion over a book, helping the author with a blog tour, tweeting wonderful, kind words.

  9. Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2015! Well, first and foremost, my own – HELLO? coming out October 10th, (Spencer Hill Contemporary). I’m excited about Sweet, by Tammara Webber, Persuasion by Martina Boone, Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Armentrout, The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick, Confess by Colleen Hoover, The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough, All We Have Is Now by Lisa Schroeder, Game Seven by Paul Volponi, A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, Hold Like A Breath by Tiffany Schmidt, Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone, Under the Lights by Dahlia Adler. Truly, Madly, Famously by Rebecca Serle. THERE ARE MORE! So many, many, many more. I know we were supposed to do 5. But gah!

  10. What’s an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read? Reclaimed by Sarah Guillory

  11. Which book boy or girl would be your book BFF? There are so many . . . but um if I have to choose, Lucas from Easy or Josh from The Sea of Tranquility.

  12. Apart from reading, what are your other hobbies or interests? I write! I love to cook, love to walk in state parks or along Lake Michigan.

  13. Apart from book shopping, what else do you like shopping for? I DESPISE SHOPPING. Really. I am the worst shopper. But if I have to shop, I would rather do it for someone else than for myself – my boys, a friend. 

  14. At a party, the DJ suddenly changes the song – and it’s your What song would be playing? My  song would be CENTURIES by Fall Out Boys!

  15. Pick out either a book you want turned into a film/TV show, or a film/TV show you want turned into a book. The Sea of Tranquility and Easy.

FAVORITE BOOK QUOTES:

but logic examined and recalculated

heated and curved to fit

inside the contours of the heart”

 

From Compulsion by Martina Boone

From Better Off Friends by Elizabeth Eulberg (please17228280 note that I put in the names to make it easier for readers of this blog post.)

 

“Levi: Okay, fine. But I’ll admit it hasn’t been totally easy. We’ve had some problems.

Macallan: Some problems?

Levi: All right, more than a few. But look how everything turned out. I don’t think either of us thought we’d even speak to each other again after my first day at school, back in seventh grade. Especially since you must’ve had a huge crush on me.

Macallan: Are you remembering the same day that I am?

Levi: Yes.

Macallan: Oh. I’m sorry. I believe you’re suffering from delusional fantasies.

Levi: I’m not delusional. There are many words to describe me: awesome, stud, male extraordinaire, you name it.

Macallan: Fine. You’re awesome. But clearly delusional.”

From The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay

“Just so you know,” I inform him, “one day, I’m going to get tired of sharing your affection with that coffee table and I’m going to make you choose.” “Just so you know,” he mimics me, “I would chop that table up and use it for firewood before I would ever choose anything over you.”
