One of the best parts about running this blog is having the ability to meet some really cool people, and some of the coolest people that I have met have led me to really cool blogs. I’ve said it before, no one’s blog is 100% original but everyone’s voices are different so there are blogs that I love to read because I love the writer, and I love the passion that they show for what they are writing. They are fun and interesting to read and they inspire me to get better and better in my blog.
So I decided to do a feature (inspired by Megan at the Nerdy Girlie’s Geek Girls Gab), where I profile the bloggers that I love. Not only do I get to find out more about them, but I also get to share them with you guys! Most of the bloggers that I follow are like me, nerd girls, fan girls and they enjoy the same things as me, and you! Every blogger that I profile is one that is super important to me and I urge you to check them out!
If you are interested in being featured on the Blogger Spotlight, feel free to contact me, please! I would love to hear from you, to feature you on the blog and to help spread the word about it!

This week’s Blogger is Jasmine from Movies, Shows n Books
Sara: Tell me a Little Bit About Yourself:
Jasmine: What can I say. I’m a working Mom & wife that is still a booknerd at heart. I have loved to read since my childhood days. I am always a big fan of a good story, be it a movie, show and/or book. I spend most of my time reading and going to events such as book signings, concerts and or Hollywood premieres (taking my daughter with me as much as I can) when all the responsibilities are taken care of. I can even say that the public library was my favorite hangout when I was in my Jr. High and High School days. Now, bookstores are my favorite places to hangout…haha!!
Sara: Tell me about your blog:
Jasmine: My blog entails the sharing of my love for movies, shows and books and my love for a good story. It’s not about posting every entertainment news tidbit that comes out. It’s more on me sharing my thoughts and my love of what interests me about the movies, shows and books that I enjoy. And, since I am a fan of many, my blog doesn’t focus on just one fandom and/or one form of media. And, with all the fun events that my daughter and I, even my husband, have attended, this blog is a great way to share all the fun that we had and more! I mean, geez, I have also met a great deal of awesome people/bloggers…whatanerdgirlsays among the many I’ve met, at these awesome events.
Sara: What inspired you to start your blog?
Jasmine: What inspired me to start…hmmm!!! I’m not exactly sure. First of all, I just love to share the fun and love of all of this to others. And, come to find out, there are many people out there who love to share as well. On another note, I enjoy writing…at times, I can be at a loss for words, but I love to write. Sometimes, once I start writing, I just keep going…as long as my thoughts keep flowing! LOL! For the most part, it’s just the sharing of the fun events to a public forum….have to “gush” somehow…right!!??!!
Sara: What is your favorite nerd memory?
Jasmine: My favorite nerd memory is when my daughter and I went to RT Teen Day (RT Booklovers Convention) in 2011 when it was in Los Angeles, CA! It was the most memorable since just a couple of years prior, I got back into reading after being out of the country for several years studying for my college degree in BSPharmacy. It was one of the most exciting days that I remember! That was the a day I met many new favorite authors! That and the first year we went to San Diego Comic Con! So, I don’t know if I can really say I have a favorite…it’s more like I have many favorite memories, because it all was amazing experiences.
Sara: What are you most looking forward to, as far as new books/movies/etc?
Jasmine: I am definitely looking forward to seeing one of my favorite author’s books, City of Bones written by Cassandra Clare, come to life on the big screen soon. I think it’s amazing to see film adaptations of books. Sometimes, it’s a bad adaptation, but sometimes, it can actually be a good adaptation. What’s important is to capture the vision that the author had for the books! (that’s just me…haha!) I was looking forward to reading Richlle Mead‘s new adult novel, Gameboard of the Gods, but now, I have already read it! I was definitely not disappointed! I loved it! In regards to movies, there are so many to choose from! The few that I most am looking forward to seeing isPacific Rim, The Wolverine, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Thor: The Dark World, THG: Catching Fire…these are just the few I’m most excited about. But, the list can go on and on! In regards to books, there is so many (yes, I am so behind on my reading), I am looking forward to reading Khaled Hosseini‘s new book And The Mountains Echoed, Leigh Bardugo‘s Grisha series, Veronica Roth‘s Divergent series…and so many more!!!
Sara: As my blog is mostly about books and reading, what are some of your favorite books or authors to read?
Jasmine: My favorite authors to read are Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead (since I readGameboard of the Gods), Anne Rice, Melissa dela Cruz, Alyson Noel, Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia, Sidney Sheldon, V.C. Andrews (when she was still alive), Keri Arthur, Khaled Hosseini, Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins, Nancy Holder and so many more that I just can’t list them all down…haha!!
Sara: What are some of your favorite blogs to follow?
Jasmine: Some of my favorite blogs to follow are: The Mortal Minute, Novel Reality, Jean Book Nerd, Mundie Moms, iFandoms Collide (since it includes all the other blogs that are my favorites to follow), Page to Premiere…just to name a few! Of course, WhatANerdGirlSays also…which is also a part of iFandoms Collide.
Sara: Who is your fictional crush?
Jasmine: Let’s see…my fictional character crush(es)…hmmm! Definitely, Jace and Will from The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, respectively; Ethan Wate from The Caster Chronicles; Ian and Jared from Stephenie Meyer‘s The Host; Damon Auguste from Alyson Noel‘s Immortals series; Damon from The Vampire Diaries; Justin March from Richelle Mead‘s Gameboard of the Gods…so far that I can recall…LOL!
