Under the Lamplight: Steph Bowe from Hey! Teenager of the Year

Friday, July 16, 2010 |
Under the Lamplight is a bi-weekly meme that I have created to get to know the blogging community! If you're interested in being interviewed, please email me.

This week Steph Bowe from Hey! Teenager of the Year is joining us. :)

Could you give a little blurb on your blog?
Hey! Teenager of the Year is funny, happy, awkward and sarcastic. It combines book reviews & author interviews with advice for writers and daily musings of 16-year-old YA author Steph Bowe.

What got you hooked on reading- did you love it as a child, or was it something you grew into?
My parents read to me a lot when I was little, and I loved reading as a really young kid. I started reading YA when I was 11. Now I devour probably one book every two days.

How were you introduced into the blogging world?
I loved the blog by author Penni Russon (Eglantines Cake) and was inspired to start a blog myself. Then I somehow stumbled across the YA book blogging community, and gave my book a focused theme of YA book reviews.


What’s been the most fun or exciting thing you’ve been able to do on your blog lately?
Announce my book deal! I don't have many friends who are readers/writers in real life, so it was great to have the support of lots of people on my blog.

What’s your opinion of books made into movies? Love ‘em or Hate ‘em?
Depends on the book & movie! Generally, I prefer books, but sometimes the visual aspect of movies adds something that the book didn't have.

You can only afford to purchase one book at the bookstore today. What do you choose?
I already read the ARC of this, but I want a finished copy when it comes out: Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan

What’s your favorite guilty-pleasure T.V. show? Or book?
TV show: Supernatural.
Book: anything paranormal romance YA...

What is one thing that most people don’t know about you?
If you didn't know me when I was fourteen, you don't know that I totally shaved my head. I went from having waist-length hair to total baldness. It was a bit of a shock!


If your life were being made into a movie, what would it be called, and who would you cast?
I'd call it 'The Girl Who Knew Too Much' and I'd cast Angelina Jolie as an older version of myself. My parents would be played by Paris Hilton and Robert Pattinson.

Anything else you’d like to add?
Thanks for interviewing me!
