LoveAThon Introduction

Hello Poetteers,


(made up by me to mean poetry lovers, just so the new readers know)

My name is Fida. I'm from the snowy Midwest. I started blogging at the end of 2008 after discovering it the same year after being a guest blogger in a blog that is no longer running. I had shared my poetry and loved it. They convinced me to make my own blog.

My blog name has changed a bit. I started of with it being The Poetry Korner, now it's Hugs & Kisses of Poetry. Sidenote: it's also the title of my third poetry collection.

I'm not exactly a book blogger than I am a poetry blogger but when I do review books it's either contemp or historical YA.

Besides poetry and reviews I participate in the weekly What's Up Wednesday memes.

I think the discovery of indie authors and the research that followed for me to fall into being part of the indie community.

I enjoy the friendships!

I'm looking forward to:
An Ember in the Ashes,
A Court of Thorns and Roses,
Queen of Shadows,
Winter,
Written in the Stars.

Everyone should read: Mornings in Jenin.

Besides books I love shopping for
stationary!

Love, Fida

I pretty much nodded my way through your entire list of titles you're looking forward to, because I'm excited about them too! Also, I think it's awesome you dabble in poetry. I used to write poems back in the day, though I haven't done it in ages.

Thanks for participating in this year's Love-a-Thon!

This is an awesome post! I'm definitely looking forward to several of these books as well- Winter and the Lunar Chronicles in particular! Love that series.

I love stationary as well :) I could lose hours in office supply stores because there is just so much awesomeness on the shelves :P

An Ember in the Ashes is definitely much anticipated for me as well, I can't wait for the release!!!!

Yes to all of those books! Sooo excited for Queen of Shadows!

Stationary, pretty notebooks. I'm a sucker for it all. There's this store in Mall of America (can't remember what it's called now of course) that just sells notebooks, pens and such and it's amazing!! I could spend so much money there.

Hi Fida!

I think it's so cool that you blog about poetry. I'm not very good at writing it, but I do adore reading poems. (I still have a collection of Edgar Allan Poe's that I have yet to start reading). And oh, An Ember in the Ashes is one of my highly anticipated releases too!

Thanks for stopping by The Fox's Hideaway! :)
