About me

The Lit Bitch

Want to get to know more about me? Here are a few Q & A’s for your enjoyment!


What literary heroine do you identify with most?

Who is your biggest fictional crush?

If you could time travel to any place in any era what would it be?

  • Victorian London

If you could spend the day with any fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?

What’s the most intimidating book you’ve ever read?

  • Anna Karenina because it was so long and had a lot of foreign concepts and old fashion, tedious language, but I ended up loving it.

What book were you nervous to start and why?

  • The A Song of Ice and Fire series. They were so long and had a complicated story line, not to mention they were high fantasy. But again, loved them, probably the best series I’ve read.
  • I am also putting off reading the Lord of the Rings series for many of the same reasons but I am also worried that I won’t like it as well as ASOIAF.

If you were writing your memoirs, what would you call them?

  • Tears, Scars, and Lies

Who is your favorite protagonist of all time?

Who is your favorite villain or love-to-hate character?

  • This one is hard too….but again if I had to answer, Voldemort

Who is the most annoying character in any book you’ve ever read?

What is your favorite classic (British or American)

What is your least favorite classic or classic that you could just NOT get into no matter how hard you tried?

What’s the first book you remember really loving?

What is the longest book you have ever read?

Favorite poems or poet:

E-reader or hard copies?

  • Both! Love my iPad but then again nothing beats the feel of paper in your hand.

Best film adaption of a novel?

  • If we are looking at straight film adaptions, then I would say Gone with the Wind. If we are including TV adaptions, I would say Game of Thrones does a pretty awesome job as well.

Pick a super natural talent you would like to have.

  • Time travel or mind reading.

Favorite general quote:

Beyond myself somewhere I wait for my arrival (Octavio Paz)

Favorite literary quote from a book: 

I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul

  1. Your blog looks amazing! If you don’t mind me asking, how did you customise it like this? I have to do an assignment (like making a blog) for one of my classes at uni and while I’m really not keen on the fact, I really want a good one to start on as my theme is going to be books, reading etc etc and at the moment I really have no idea what I’m doing in terms of blogging, are you using a particular blogging site or did you create this yourself? Either way, it looks awesome and I really enjoy all your entries 🙂

    1. Hi there, thanks for the blog loving :). I run my blog from WordPress (the self hosted version) and as much as I would love to take the design credit, I can’t. A fellow blogger (Parajunkee of Parajunkee Designs http://www.parajunkeedesign.com/) designed my header and avatar. The background, colors, tabs, and side bars/menus are all templates from one of the layouts free on WordPress. The content, name, pictures, and topics/posts I CAN claim credit for though :). Once you get you blog up and running let me know and I can link back to it here on my blog :). Good luck to you and thanks again for the compliments, I am glad you enjoy the blog!! 🙂 Cheers!!

  2. Right after I signed up with your page, I got a FB friend request from Francoise Lavergne. I don’t recognize the name and the only clue was that she listed an interest in Diana Gabaldon. So – could Francoise possibly be you?

  3. I love your blog and follow you, I’m really passionate about books and read faster than I can review. I’ve been told by many blog friends that I should only do reviews and look for authors to interview or review for up and coming authors, which I am already doing. This is purely for enjoyment but then I got to thinking … I wonder if there is more to it?
    Would love to know what you think?

    1. First of all thank you for the lovely compliments and for following my blog :). That’s kind of how I started….I started just reviewing books that I happened to be reading at the time simply because I wanted to remember what I liked and what I didn’t plus it was fun sharing my thoughts and opinions with other readers and book fans :). Then I started getting approached by Indi authors to review their books which I was and am still glad to do if the books was something that I sounded interested in. Gradually I started doing interview and guest posts etc then I started getting publishers asking if I wanted to do reviews etc which is mostly what I do now. Over the years I’ve been able to become more and more selective about the books and genres I review. I still only accept books that capture my interest regardless if its from a publisher or an Indi author. I haven’t really had to go out and hunt for people who want me to review their books, every book I’ve reviewed for an author or publisher, I have been asked if I would like to review the book in exchange for an honest review. I do still read books on my own that I’ve had on my TBR list etc but I absolutely love reviewing new books….there is nothing like discovering the next best thing before anyone else :). Book review is awesome….put yourself out there on social media and let people know that you are open to reviewing their books. You can always pass or say no if it’s not something you are interested in 🙂 Good luck, let me know how it goes for you! Cheers 🙂
