Each and every day blogs go out of their way to support us Authors! They give up personal time with their friends, family and other obligations all for their love of us! *I* want a place share who they are, what they do and let them know just how important they are to us!
The first blog I will be showcasing is actually the first blog I followed and quite frankly… Fell in love with!
A Book Whore’s Obsession
I chose to interview ABWO’s ladies first for a few very special reasons. The first two are the ladies behind the magical curtain of eye candy… Kari and Cara! Their blog was the very first blog I came across when I really started to discover this wonderful online world of books, authors and book boyfriends! It wasn’t long after I obsessively stalked their page that a friendship blossomed. Now… I don’t know what I’d do without these ladies. Both have helped read and edit my For You series novels and Kari even created my book cover with the infamous Jase Dean on it! Even more than that though, they are amazing women and some of the kindest people I have ever known. I love them both and I hope you fall in love with them (and what they do) just as I have!
Megan Noelle: To get started tell me who you ladies are and a little more about yourselves!
Book Whores: Cara- I’m Cara, a momma to four little boys and a wife to my high school sweetheart. Books are my outlet (everything is so male-centric in my house!). I met Kari because of our shared love of Beautiful Disaster – a fun fact? We’ve never met in “real life” but she is one of my closest friends! My fav book boyfriends are the total alpha males with dirty mouths and I have a particular love of fighters and businessmen. I’m in love with Beckett from K Bromberg’s “Driven” right now – he’s my book husband! I love the color orange, coffee, wine, flip flops, quotes, and Cam Gigandet.
Kari- Hi I’m Kari, when I am not admin to ABWO I am a mother to two wonderful little kiddo’s, a wife to an incredible husband, Photographer, Graphic Designer, Cover Designers and recently became a writer. Cara and I met via FB on another blog and have been partner’s in crime ever since. Some of my favorite book boyfriends are Kellan Kyle and Travis Maddox! I love reading books with tons of drama and anguish. I love summer time, wine, Starbucks, the color turquoise and Devin Paisley! Oh and I have a slight obsession with Book Covers!
Megan Noelle: With favorite BB’s like Travis Maddox and Kellan Kyle its no wonder we all got along riiiight away! So, tell me, what gave you two the idea to start the blog?
Book Whores: Cara- Kari and I met on another blog page – we always liked the same stuff and same things, particularly Cam Gigandet as Travis Maddox. So Kari (who is the brains behind our operation) sent me a message one day and was like “I think we need to start a page for Cam as Travis”. So we did! (Well, she set it up and taught me how to use it. LOL) Then, as things progressed, we felt that there wasn’t a page that focused on the things we wanted to focus on.
Alas, ABWO was born!
Megan Noelle: And I am so happy it was! What all do you ladies focus on, on your blog?
Book Whores: Cara- Our focus is on the “book boyfriend” and the casting of them. We try to keep our page a positive, drama-free place to chat. We post lots of questions and things for readers to voice their opinions on, which they seem to like. We play games nearly every day and do a lot of giveaways, too. We keep our wall as a “public message board” of sorts – authors and their street teams can feel free to post and pimp their books there any time and we share them to the timeline most times. Kari is a gifted graphic designer, so she does these amazing quote pics and has now branched out to book covers and graphics for blog yours and promotions (K23 Designs). We are now doing blog tours and promo packages!
Megan Noelle: The thing I love about your blog is you really have a little bit of everything there! Any one can go and find something they enjoy! Your page really feels like a community where people can talk about some of our favorite books, boys and authors!
Out of all the things you offer and do…What is each of your favorite segments?
Book Whores: Kari- My favorite segment on our Blog has to be “Which Book Boyfriend could he be?” I love hearing all of the suggestions from our followers!
Cara- Question of the day! It’s fun to hear everyone’s opinions about topics, favorite book boyfriends, or get tips about new book boyfriends and authors!
Megan Noelle: I love those segments! It’s fun to learn about new BB’s and you can never go wrong with some new eye candy! ❤
Here is another question for the both of you! What are your Top 3 books that you could read over and over again and never get tired of?
If you click on a book cover image it links you directly to the Amazon US site for purchase!!
Book Whores: Kari-
Megan Noelle: These are all amazing! I am in the middle of “Driven” now! But I really want to pick up “Hopeless”! Now, since you ladies specialize in the Book Boyfriends… Which are your Top 3 Favorite BB’s?
Book Whores: Kari- 1. TRAVIS MADDOX from Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire- After all he is the reason Cara and I met!! 2. Kellan Kyle from Thoughtless Series by S.C. Stephens (Sigh* the love of my life)
3. Christian Grey from 50 Shades of Grey by EL James – Because he was my first BB he will always have a piece of my heart!! Plus how could you resist him in the RROP Jeans!! lol
Cara- 1. Christian Grey – the barometer by which all other book boyfriends are measured. He’s the original “book boyfriend” and he will always be #1.
2. Travis Maddox- the dream guy of my young adult life. I also have a penchant for the bad boy fighters.
3. Jesse from “This Man” – The superior alpha male and ultimate flawed dominate. It’s Jesse’s way or no way, and I’m fine with that.
Megan Noelle: Siiiigh…. So many good ones! And apparently I really need to meet Jesse! But now.. My final task for each of you… Since you both are the queens of teaser pics. I’d like to see a teaser for either your favorite book or BB!
Book Whores: Kari-
Megan Noelle: Siiigh…. I love all of these books and book boyfriends! Well Thank you both sooo much for taking time out for me! I hope you had as much fun as I did and I can’t wait to see what is coming up next for you both!
