Scene of the Blog Featuring Erika of Moonlight Book Reviews!

I was out and about on Twitter one day, whining for participants, when who should appear but my hero, Erika of Moonlight Book Reviews.

As so often happens in the world of book blogging, I received a message from Erika that basically asked, "What is Scene of the Blog, and what do you need?" See? Ask for help, and you get it.

Having never visited Erika's blog, I quickly took care of that oversight. I'm impressed by this Michigan book blogger who is now a junior in high school. She loves all things bookish, and that enthusiasm shines through on her blog. Would you like to know how much?

I've been seeing endless posts about The Hunger Games and Mockingjay, and to be honest I didn't care if I never read those books. After reading posts on Moonlight Book Reviews, Erika had me interested. As cantankerous as I am, that's pretty darned good! If you haven't visited Erika's blog, please take the opportunity to do so-- and please don't forget to say hi!

It is now time for Erika to take over and show us her blogging and reading spaces. Don't forget that you can click on each photo to view it full size!

I like to blog on the couch upstairs overlooking the Rabbit River. I usually have my books spread all around me when I am reviewing them. If I need more battery in my computer then the plug is just a short reach away. I do most of my blogging here because it is convenient, and the laptop is the family laptop so the computer rarely leaves this area. I'm just 16, so I still live with my parents as you can guess. If I could change one thing about this room I would add a big comfy leather chair.

Here I am in my room. You may recognize some of it from my vlog posts. I usually try to vlog in this area so you can see all my books. Most of them are double stacked, and the ones in the picture are in just one area of my room. The other books in my room are non-fiction. They are ACT books, calculus and biology texts and career choice books. Basically everything a nerdy teen could want.  I read a lot in this room, just ask my parents!

I would like to add a trap door in my closet that leads to a secret vault. After entering a series of codes, I would enter a room that is indestructible! I would shelve the room floor to ceiling and fill it with my books... leaving some space so I could expand. I would also have those ladders attached to the shelves that you can slide around on. I would add old looking furniture that is comfy and a huge rug! This is my perfect room!! A girl can only dream!!

I don't know about any of the rest of you, but the deck I can see through the window in the first photo looks mighty inviting. I'd probably be sitting sideways on the couch, looking out of the window at the river and never getting any blogging done!

And Erika? That dream about the secret vault? I like it. I like it a lot! (By the way, what is the name of that short, dark, and handsome stranger you're holding in the last photo?)

Thanks so much for answering my distress call. I've had so much fun looking at your blogging and reading spaces, and I know I won't be the only one!

Who will be the next blogger to be featured on Scene of the Blog? All I'll say is that she owns my favorite blog title. Stop by next Wednesday to check out her space!


  1. I love the secret vault idea! And I'm curious about the dog's name too. I'll bet he would enjoy the vault as long as he had a comfy pillow or rug to sleep on while she reads.

  2. I want to know more about the dog! You can't put a picture like that in and not even tell us its name! :p

  3. Love the vault idea too!

    Love seeing a younger individual with such a love for reading..and a hoarder of books. (insert evil laugh) It only gets better. lol

  4. I'm so impressed with these young bloggers - they give me hope for the future. It looks like Erika has a great space to blog!

  5. Erika seems like a really cool girl and I love her dog!

  6. opps sorry his name is Mr. Woofles but we call him Woofie for short. To pronounce its like when a dog sayys woof but with a y.

    I never expected such a great response from everyone.Thanks!!

  7. Erika-- Thanks for telling us his name. He looks like quite the character!

  8. He can throw tennis balls using the fuzz and grabs it between his teeth. I have had slobbery tennis balls in my soup bowl and kitchen seat and hitting my forehead when I am reading.

  9. Erika-- It's been my experience that a little slobber is good for the soul.

    I wish there'd been more reaction to your feature, but I think Book Blogger Appreciation Week shot us in the foot! :(

  10. I was just thinking about BBAW! I think you are right! It was a good experience anyways!


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
