Armchair BEA: Introduction to Gripped into Books!

Hi bloggers!
I take it you're here for Armchair BEA? So, I may as well start! My name is Mina but all my friends call me MIA and I prefer Mia anyways. I'm 16 and from the UK. So far, I've been blogging for around 7 months and what can I say it's been a great adventure!

I really really wanted to go go BEA this year, heck, I needed to go! But I obviously couldn't seeing as I've got my GCSE's you know exams and plus I'm only 16. Too young, Obviously :(

If I'm not reading, I love writing poety and drawing in my spare time. And you should know that I love Vampire Diaries, 90210,  and One Tree Hill- It's officially ended now :(
I love YA! Everything thing YA! Well except Historical, sorry but that just is just not my thing. LOL. Currently, I'm really getting into Dystopian themed books especially The Hunger Games :D ...Divergent is also another books I LOVE!

 As I'm already entering the favourite territory I just have to spill my favourite book! Which is at the moment Anna and the french kiss :D and my favourite series... duh! Harry Potter and Vampire Academy!

I'm so jealous for anyone that can score a copy of Bloodlines, the spin off series to VA! I am mostly looking forward to chatting with all the bloggers! There's so much you can talk about with your friends about books! I can't wait! Oh and the Tuesday posts, discovering everyone's favourite books will be so so awesome!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm looking forward to visiting you all, so please leave your link in the comments! :D


  1. I'm not a huge fan of historical either ;)

  2. I <3 historical fiction! It's alright if you don't like it, I know many people who don't, but I was a history major in college so I obviously love history.

    Brush Up On Your Reading

  4. Hi, nice to meet you. There's some great YA dystopians out there. I can't wait to read Anna and the French Kiss. It's on the top of my reading list.

  5. New follower here. I LOVE the Hunger Games and can't wait to read Divergent! Also a big fan of Anna and of course Harry Potter. Oh, and Vampire Academy.Let me just say, you have good taste in books. Nice to meet you.

    Here's my ArmchairBEA kick-off post.

  6. I'm not a big fan of historical, but I'm learning to read them every now and then. :) Oh, and because I just finished reading Gayle Forman's Where She Went, I can't help but think of Mia there when I saw your name. :)

  7. Welcome to the book blogging world. Happy ArmChair BEA! I love all genres, except for a few...I hope you have a great week.

  8. You hate historical? I feel like a part of me just died inside. I'm just kidding, I'm a humungo believer in different strokes for different folks :) I enjoy YA as well, though I haven't gotten around to reading Hunger Games regardless of the fact that everyone everywhere says they are the best books ever :)

  9. I'm so glad you're doing Armchair! I just started following you yesterday and can't wait to read your posts this week.

    Are you planning on going next year?

  10. I just got Anna and the French Kiss for a RAK! I'm so looking forward to reading it :D

  11. OMG, I love "Anna and the French kiss" and can't wait for "Lola and the boy next door".
    I'm here via Armchair BEA and happy to have discovered your blog.

  12. HI, I've been following for a while, but it's great to know more about the person behind the blog.
    Great to see another UK blogger too.

    The Hunger Games is Epic! I'm wearing a t-shirt for it right now. :D I haven't got to read Divergent yet, but really want to.

    If you want to see my BEA post, it's up here:

    Have a great week :D

  13. Ah! Historical can be good I swear!!! Let me know if you need any suggestions. You could always start with Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation series. It's not YA, but it is a fab. series. I'm reading Anna & the French Kiss right now and I absolutely love it! I cannot gush about this book enough. My review will be spilling over with bookish love.

  14. Hi Mia!

    Good to meet you.

  18. Greetings! This is my first Armchair BEA and I am having a blast with it so far! I am excited about meeting more book lovers! Stop by The Wormhole sometime! Happy reading!
    (I went to a Richelle Mead signing this weekend and she had 5 ARC's of Blood Lines and gave them away in a drawing - - - super sad I didn't win).

    nice to meet you ^__^
    like you I'm loving dystopian novels too. I like The Hunger Games and the latest addition is Divergent. I haven't read Anna & The French Kiss since I'm still waiting for my copy but I'm really looking forward reading that. And of course who doesn't love HP? I love that series & I'll always do.
