11 Bloggers I'm Tagging:

Questions to answer:
  1. Why did you start blogging?
  2. What's your favorite element in a book?
  3. How did you come up with your blog name?
  4. What are your hopes for your blog?
  5. What's your favorite book?
  6. How many books are in your to-read pile?
  7. How many books do you read a year?
  8. When did you start blogging?
  9. Do you review every book you read?
  10. How do you pick a book?
  11. What would you like to tell your followers? They will probably be reading this...

Answers to Kitty's Questions:
1. I wanted to start blogging to express my opinions on books. I thought it would be a lot of fun, and I enjoy it a lot. I'm definitely glad that I did start a blog.
2. Romance is definitely my favorite element of a book. To me, a book will be boring and dull, without romance.
3. Good question! I was trying to come up with an original name for my blog, and I knew of a website for one of favorite actresses called iheartwatson, & wanted to stick with something like that so I chose Emily Hearts Books. 
4. I honestly hope to get a larger following. I hope to one day, far off in the future, use my blog as a way to promote my novel. But for now, I just would like more of a following. It would be very cool if I got an ARC from a book publisher for free!
5. I have many different favorite books! I love Harry Potter, The Hunger Games,  Divergent, Delirium, and The Host. Those are my favorites right now.
6. A few. Currently, I'm reading Elsewhere, but I also have Wither & Shatter Me in my "To Read Pile".
7. I hope to read 35 this year. That's my goal. I actually posted about that recently in a Monday Musing.
8. I started blogging March of this year. I created it March 4th, but my first post wasn't until March 5th.
9. No, I haven't reviewed every book I have read since March, but almost all of them. 
10. There are so many different factors that go into selecting a book. It really all depends. If you ask me "why did you read ABC?" I can tell you, but I don't know if there is a specific way on how I select a book.
11. I want to thank my followers for following me. It really means a lot to me. I appreciate it so much.


  1. Thank you so much for thinking about me Emily! Unfortunately I already received the Liebster Award last week but I will make sure to still give you a shout-out on my next post :)


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to comment. It means a lot. Just please do NOT post spoilers in them. Thanks!!
