I thought I’d do a quick get to know me before I start posting reviews and stuff, so you could get know me a little more as I’m new to being in the book blogging community, though I have been around silently for about five years. I’m not sure who created this tag, but I found this it on the bookish lounge.
1. Why did you start this blog?
Like I said I’ve been for the most part silently a part of the bookish community, but I am now ready to be a more active part of it. Also I love reading. I haven’t found very many people in my real life who even read the same books as I do, let alone like the same ones. I found that I need a place to shout about the books I love.
2. What are some fun and unique things you can bring to book blogging?
Um… everybody has unique reading tastes and opinions, so I guess that I’ll bring my own uniqueness.
Also from time to time I’ll probably make a post about something else I’m interested in e.g. writing, art, history, cooking, sustainability. Though the majority of posts will be about books..
3. What are you most excited for about this new blog?
Having my own space to talk about things I’m interested in and being able to develop a community of like minded people or aliens, I don’t discriminate.
4. Why do you love reading?
This is a hard question and I’m not sure if I can be give a quantifiable answer.
I’ve been reading as long as I can remember, reading has always been a big part of who I am. Part of my love of reading I feel has to come from this, but I also love getting absorbed in the story. I also really love the whole idea of reading and the physicality of books; I mean the whole idea is amazing that whole words can be contained inside of it. And I just love.
5. What book or series got you into reading?
As I said before I’ve been reading for as long as I can remember so I don’t know what series got me into reading according to my mum some of the first books I loved were Flutterby by Stephen Cosgrove and well as the little golden book of Disney’s Alice in Wonderland.
However for books that got me more into young adult I have to go with The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
6. What questions would you ask your favourite authors?
Let’s assume that I would be able to talk to them and not end up a puddle on the floor. I’d probably ask about their writing process because I find that fascinating.
7. What challenges do you think starting a blog will be the hardest to overcome?
Consistency, life does have its way of trying to get in the way.
Confidence, I think I’m going to have to work really hard on maintaining my confidence about posting and sharing my ideas and opinions.
8. When did you start reading?
I’ve been reading as long as I can remember, my mum read to me in womb too. So my entire life, I guess.
9. Where do you read?
Anywhere, except in the toilet, bath and the shower, cause that seems like a recipe for disaster.
10. What kind of books do you read?
I read mainly Young Adult, though I occasionally dip my toe into the world of general and literary fiction.
I normally read in the following genres; fantasy, mystery, science fiction, contemporary and historical fiction.
Thanks for reading. I hope you feel like you know me a little better. Feel free to introduce yourself down below, or to do this tag if you want.
