Behind the Blog: Barb at Booker T’s Farm

Behind the BlogWelcome to Barb from Booker T’s Farm!

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I live somewhere in WV and have wanted to be a steady blogger for sometime. I have 2 four-legged children and combine my love of reading with the love of my pets and family. I work full time, but read whenever I can. I also love movies, football and spending time with family.

How did you end up here in the world of book blogging?

I have read blogs for many years and just finally thought – hey, I can do that. I am learning as I go along, but enjoy posting when I can.

What types of books do you enjoy reading?

My favorite of all time is Stephen King, but I read a variety of genres. In particular, YA, horror, urban fantasy, fantasy, contemporary and some romance. I am giving a few sci-fi books a try after recently seeing some interesting reviews on booktube.

What do you bring to the world of book blogging? What’s unique about your perspective of books?

I think what is unique about me is that my blog includes my dogs as much as I can. Booker T’s Farm is actually a fictional location about which my husband and I make us stories with us and the dogs as the leading characters. As far as my perspective on books, I think I provide fair reviews and cover some books that aren’t your typical blogger books.

Do you have any helpful hints about blogging?

Not really, but I am always looking for some.

What type of things always grab your attention in books?

I am a sucker for any books with dogs on the cover – go figure huh? Also, I love books with gothic, and am particularly drawn to dark, horror-like concepts. Like I said, King is my favorite author.

When you go to the library (or bookstore), do you bring a list of books to get or do you browse to find your next book?

I always have a list and as soon as the library emails me about new publications, I make notes on what I want to eventually read. I like print and ebooks, but our town spent about 2 years without a bookstore, so I basically got away from going in someplace and just browsing. I can spend hours at the library though if time permits.

What book trends do you hope to see more of?

I like such a variety, that I don’t really want to see more of any one thing. I am really enjoying the books like Asylum and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children which combine a prose with associated pictures.

What books do you constantly recommend to other people?

Books by King or basically anything I think that person would be interested in. My mother also reads, but we read TOTALLY different stuff and I am always trying to slip some different genres in on her to see if she might enjoy them.

Thanks Barb!
