About Me

Hi, my name is Bethzaida and I am the creator of Bookittyblog. I’ve been blogging since early 2011 and haven’t look back ever since. I got into blogging because I wanted people to read books that I loved. I got friends hooked on my favorite books and I said why not try it with strangers? That is the number 1 reason why I created this blog. If I help one person fall in love with a book then my work in the book blogging world is done.

Blogging has also changed my life. I’ve always been shy and never dare to do anything that would take me out of my comfort zone. After creating Bookittyblog I started to feel more comfortable around people. I even went to NYC by myself just to get a book from Book Expo America. Pre-blogging Bethzaida would’ve never in a million years taken a train by herself or gone to a big scary city by herself. Never ever. That’s when I knew that books and blogging had changed my life.  I’ve also met awesome blogger friends and I get to talk to authors all the time! I’ve never imagined that doing this would be so life changing and amazing.

With all that said I will leave you with a list of random facts about me :)

- I was born and raised in Puerto Rico.

- I came to the US in my late teens. Now I’m in my twenties.

- I’m a mom and a wife.

- I got into reading after I read Twilight. I know how cliché that sounds but…

- I am fascinated with documentaries, especially documentaries from India. They are so raw and gut-wrenching.

-I have a weird infatuation with a fictional character. His name is Jonah Griggs from Jellicoe Road.
