This is the perfect time for you guys to learn a little more about me! I’ll be posting three tag challenges this week, and we’ll start with this one: the book blog newbie tag! I saw this tag over at the lovely Linda’s blog, and thought I’d give it a go!
- Why did you start this blog?
I just really wanted to talk more about books! I chat about books all the time at work, so thought that it would be great fun to put my feelings into a blog to share with lots of other like-minded people.
- What are some fun and unique things you can bring to book blogging?
All I can bring is myself – I hope my personality shines through my posts. I like having fun with books and chatting to new people.
- What are you most excited about this new blog?
I’m excited about sharing my thoughts on books, on bookish related things, and many other things. I hope to talk about where I read, fandom, conventions, and many other things so grab a blanket, your favourite warm drink and settle in!
- Why do you love reading?
Reading is a teleportation for me. I can’t be a warrior in real life, nor am I magic. Reading allows me to be someone else; I get so sucked into reading and how I imagine settings and characters come to life before my eyes.
- What book or series got you into reading?
Most people say Harry Potter. For me, it was early, early days, when I was still little. I used to sit with my parents and read the Shirley Hughes books and adored them, and still do now. When it came to me reading myself, I loved reading the works of Dick King-Smith, and as I got older, A Series of Unfortunate Events was the series that gripped me entirely and the next book was always at the top of my Christmas wishlist!
- What questions would you ask your favourite authors?
What is your favourite book of all time?
- What challenges do you think starting a blog will be the hardest to overcome?
Uploading tons! I know that I won’t be able to do loads purely because I work most of the week, but I think that learning to schedule posts throughout the week will be good fun!
- When did you start reading?
When I was a little kid! I have a photo of me as a toddler sat in a doll pushchair with my nose in a book… I’ve read for as long as I can remember!
- Where do you read?
I read in bed, I read on the sofa, I read on the train, I read on the bus, I read standing up while waiting for friends on the street….I read everywhere!
- What kind of books do you like to read?
I enjoy fantasy, dystopian, contemporary, and adventure books! I mostly read middle grade and young adult books.
Well that’s me and my newbie book blog tag! I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about me, and about why I started blogging!
