In the summer, I drink iced mint tea.

6.- From her About: "She has a natural talent for falling down stairs" ???? LOL, care to explain?
MT&AGB: Ah, the stair falling. You'd be surprised how often I get asked about this! I get comments on it ALL THE TIME! :) I think it's rather funny! So yes, I do have habit of falling down stairs. I'm kind of clumsy, I think it's because my feet are so big. :P Erin falls downstairs quite a bit too. We were at the bookstore the other day and she went tumbling down the stairs

8.- And now, as tradition in the In Between. Yup. Limbo. You get to give us a more detailed description of your Blog :))
MT&AGB: Mint Tea and A Good Book is a YA review blog. I started it in February of 2011 b/c I had seen a few other book blogs and thought they were way cool and I could totally do one since I loved reading so much. To be honest I had no idea there was such a book blogging community until then, but the YA book blogging community truly is amazing! Ok, now the blog design. I get asked about the blog design a lot, and yes, I did do the blog design. I created it using photoshop and picnik and I think it turned out quite nicely. :) Here is what the About Mint Tea and A Good Book Thing says on our blog.
Mint Tea and A Good Book is a YA book blog that I (Meredith) started in February of 2011. I started Mint Tea and A Good Book after seeing a few other book blogs and I thought it would be a great way to share book recommendations with some of my friends. Little did I know my cute new blog would grow to become what it is today.
The name, Mint Tea and A Good Book, sort of came out of the blue. I know some bloggers who spent days thinking about the right name for their blog. I think I spent less than a minute. For some reason, I wanted a blog name that was calming and cute. Mint Tea and A Good Book was the first thing I thought of!
Soon I began visiting more book blogs and making other bloggy buddies. And before I knew it, book blogging was one of the things I enjoyed most! I began posting more reviews, and meeting more authors, etc.
One day, when Mint Tea and A Good Book was still a young blog, an author asked me to do a review. I was completely blown away! I thought that only "Big" blogs got review requests! But Mint Tea and A Good Book's review requests didn't stop there! Before long, getting review requests was a normal thing for me. I even got sent ARC's, which was something I never expected!
In June of 2011 I (Meredith) decided it would be nice to have another person contributing to the blog. It took a while before I figured out the perfect person to help with Mint Tea and A Good Book. And I finally settled on the most perfect person, Erin!
Today, Erin and I review and talk to authors all the time, promoting books and spreading the love! To be continued... (as Mint Tea and A Good Book's life goes on)
