So this year I am taking part in Love-a-thon 2016. This is my introductory post and I cannot wait to get started. Let me know if you are joining in!
What’s your Name?
Where in the world are you blogging from?
I’m blogging from the Midlands in the UK
How did you get into blogging in the first place?
I started following a friend’s blog back in University and I really slowly started to make plans and ideas and write reviews in my head. I was also too scared to comment on the blog so couldn’t really talk about all the book feels. And so one day I sat down and set up this blog. I haven’t looked back since.
How did you come up with you blog name?
When I started this blog I wanted to do it as a bit of escapism and I knew I wanted the title to be bookish themed. To be honest it was really me just shouting random bookish thoughts at my Mum which she all vetoed apart from this one. You should always listen to your mum… haha.
What genre do you read and review the most on your blog?
Well it’s a tie between YA and Fantasy for the ones that I review the most. But I also loving reading Romance and Historical Fiction.
What other types of posts do you do on your blog, apart from review?
I do want to do more than I already do, but I regularly post my Bookish Gossip where I talk about all things bookish that take my fancy, Pastime Pleasures where I talk about books that never get old, I always wrap up the month in my Monthly Round-up and finally my newest feature Book vs. Film which I hope to do more of soon!
Best blogging experience so far?
Can I say all of it? Or is that too cheesy? I have loved every moment since joining the blogging community and it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Favourite thing about the blogging community?
I love how we all have a passion for reading and books but we are all quite different in our approach to reading or even reviewing. Also everyone likes books. I can actually talk to someone about books! This is a brilliant thing.
Name the 5 books you’re most excited for this 2016!
I actually wrote a post about my 2016 anticipated reads and there were 6 on the list! Including:
Name the 5 books you want to read this 2016 that you didn’t get to in previous years!
So many books to pick from! But if I randomly pick some books out of a hat I get:
Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, The Gunslinger by Stephen King and The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd.
What is an underrated book or series that you think everyone should read?
So a great little book is The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter (RIP) by Kate Winter and is a fun romance story, but there is one small problem Rosie has died, which makes the falling in love thing an issue. It sounds mad but it is a great book.
Apart from reading., what are your other hobbies or interests?
I love watching films, if I’m not reading I will probably have a tv series on the go. I try and go to the gym or at least an exercise class but this seems a hobby doomed to fail so I’ll just stick to walking the dog…
Apart from book shopping, what else do you like shopping for?
Things for my books? I have a weakness for shoes and earrings. It’s hard to go into a shop without buying a pair…
Pick out either a book you want turned into a til, / TV Show, or a film / TV show you want turned into a book.
I would love for Throne of Glass to be made into a film or TV show. I can’t decide if I want it as a short episode each week or a large film all in one go! But it would be amazing and brilliant to watch!
