This week it's Armchair BEA, where those of us not lucky enough to be at Book Expo America hang out. I'm aiming to join in with some of the discussions in a relaxed as-I-feel-like-it sort of way. Still not into the new job routine! Turns out it takes time peeps. Here's my five intro questions, feel free to link me to yours!
Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
I'm Sarah - I'm a 23 year old New Zealander, who lives somewhere around the middle of the UK with my British husband. I'm a librarian by training, but just recently started a new information-industryish role with an international corporate law firm. I've been blogging for just over five years at my craft blog, but The Everyday Reader is a little over a year old in its current incarnation and was started as a requirement for my library science post-grad diploma.
What was your favorite book read last year? What’s your favorite book so far this year?
My favourite book last year (or at least the one that's stuck with me the most) is The Reading Promise, by Alice Ozma (I have a thing for books-about-books). So far this year it's Cress, by Marissa Meyer, but I feel like I'm still waiting for my all out favourite book of the year
What does your favorite/ideal reading space look like? (Pinterest encouraged!)

“A library in the middle of a community is a cross between an emergency exit, a life-raft and a festival. They are cathedrals of the mind; hospitals of the soul; theme parks of the imagination. On a cold rainy island, they are the only sheltered public spaces where you are not a consumer, but a citizen instead”
― Caitlin Moran
“When I was your age, television was called books.”
― William Goldman, The Princess Bride
What book would you love to see as a movie?
I'd love to see Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series as a TV costume drama. I have a feeling if it was done right it would be wonderful.
