This week's Featured Blogger is: 
Kimberly from Fantasy is more fun.

Q1. Tell us something about yourself. 

I’m originally a New Yorker, but spent my teenage years in Texas and consider myself a Texan. What can I say – I like warm/hot weather! I’m currently in my 3rd year as a graduate student of Medieval History working on my PhD – and that’s why I need my blog. To keep myself sane!

Q2. When did you first get the idea to blog? When did you start this blog?

Well I started an extremely bad blog when I started Grad School called Undergrad2Grad. The idea was that I would write about the transition to grad school. I think I had 6 posts in 2 years and maybe twice as many visitors. So I thought I wasn’t a blogger – turned out I didn’t have the right topic yet.
Then last year I met some book bloggers on Shelfari. I loved their blogs and decided to give it a go. The rest is history.

Q3. How did you come up with this name for your blog?

Fantasy in general (Urban, more specifically) is my favorite genre so I wanted the blog name to convey that – but also apply to all books. Even the most realistic book is an escape from our world and into a fantasy one. And I read them because it’s way more fun than real life – hence, “Fantasy is More Fun” (it was going to be Fantasy is More Fun than Real Life, but my brother convinced me that was a mouthful)

Q4. What is your blog about? 

I blog about all kinds of books – though a huge focus is fantasy and audio books.
I also have a weekly discussion post and participate in a couple memes.
3x a year I co-host the Clean Out Your E-Reader Challenge (called COYER) where we try to read AND review as many free ebooks as possible. We just finished our second month and it was a blast.

Q5. What’s the best thing that has happened to you because of blogging?

So many things! I’ve made great friends, discovered books I never would have, gotten to know authors personally, and found an outlet for the stress of grad school. And I’ve finally started writing that UF book that I’ve had in my head for a while – I don’t know if I would have had the courage to go for it without my blog.

Q6. What is the one special thing about your blog that sets it apart from all the other similar blogs out there?

Um probably my personality. I’m a little bit crazy and I like to speak my mind – and my personality really comes through in my posts. I do a bit of everything  from reviews to discussions to keep it super fun.

Q7. What are your future plans for your blog?

I just want to keep going strong. Sure I’d love more followers, but it’s already way more successful than I ever dreamed it would be, so I can’t complain!

A quick top 5 with Kimberly:

1.    Favorite past time? Reading! Or playing video games…
2.    Favorite tourist destination? ANY beautiful beach
3.    Favorite Book? Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
4.    Love at first sight or love after a long courtship? Long Courtship
5.    Tea or coffee? Tea!
