Spotlighting Kelsy from Up in the Bibliosphere

For Utah Book Month, I am spotlighting Kelsy from Up in the Bibliosphere. Kelsey blogs regularly about the books she reads. She has already completed her Goodreads Challenge for the year. She's read 208 books. Wow! I'm impressed. She regularly hosts give-aways. Be sure to check read more about Kelsy and Up in the Bibliosphere.

My name is Kelsy, and I am the voice behind Up in the Bibliosphere. I am a twenty-something college student living happily in stranger-than-fiction Utah with my husband and six cats. My dream is to write books for a living (a dream that more or less began around the age of 6 when I wrote my first novel, a Sailor Moon/Pokemon crossover). I pay the bills by working through school as a laboratory technician. (You know, blood and pee and guts and stuff. All those gross things that people never think about when they consider medicine.)

My love for reading began in elementary school, and has been with me ever since. As such, I'm a regular at the library and spend way too much money on I mainly read young adult literature, but also enjoy titles and authors in the general fiction, fantasy, and classical literature genres. When I die, the first thing I am going to do it stalk Jane Austen until she promises to be my BFF.

When not reading or writing I can usually be found daydreaming, cooking, sleeping, spending time with friends and family, enjoying the creative and performing arts, and trying new things. The newest of the new things are tennis, sewing, and gluten free cooking.

My personal philosophy is simple: Learn, love and laugh as much as you can.

About The Bibliosphere

Up in the Bibliosphere was founded in January 2012 when I figured I may as well do something productive with the excess of books I read. Young adult literature is the main focus, but other genres will be explored periodically. I post on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays and try my best to publish several reviews and interesting book-related content on each of these days. As this blog is still small and relatively obscure, giveaways and blog hop participation will be at my own discretion. As The Bibliosphere grows so, too, will the amount of giveaways. I also hold author/blogger/reader interviews, book news, weekly memes, and other such book goodness.

I contacted Kelsy and asked her what her favorite books have been so far in 2013. It looks like a fun list.

It's fun to get to know more about Kelsy! I've only read one of those books but I hope to get to the others eventually. :)
I'll have to check out her blog! We are going gluten free at my house so I always need more ideas for that.

Awesome spotlight. Kelsy, you are new to me! I'm so excited to add another Utah blogger to my Feedly and to get to know you better.

And my mind is reeling with the fact that you're in school AND you've read over 200 books this year.
