For today’s post, I’ve decided to tag myself. *whispers “Is that weird?”* I’ve seen this tag done as far back as 2015 so I’m unsure who to give credit to, but I can say that whoever came up with these questions is awesome. I thought it might be cool for you all to get to know me a bit better since I’m relatively new to the community, so without further ado, let’s get into it.
- Why did you start this blog?
(If anyone recognizes the show that this gif is from, let me know in the comments and we can automatically be best friends)
I started blogging as a way to share my love of books with others. I wanted to join and explore a community that’s as passionate about books and words as I am. Blogging is a great stress-reliever for me, and it’s something that brings me joy. I’m really lucky and grateful to be part of such a wonderful community.
- What are some fun and unique things that you can bring to book blogging?
I think that because I’m a teen blogger, I can offer a unique perspective on YA books. I have many intersections and am a firm supportive of diversity and inclusion within books and the book blogging community. I feel like we all bring passion to the table. And I’m a bit awkward, and I like to sprinkle in gifs and asterisks for added pizzaz.
- What are you most excited for about this new blog?
I’m most excited to meet and interact with new people and fangirl with them about books. Book blogging is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while now, and I’m really excited that I’ve finally started.
- Why do you love reading?
(Guys, I’m giving away a major hint!!)
Because reading basically makes me feel the way that Rachel feels in the gif. It simply makes me happy. It’s comforting, and it’s a large part of who I am as a person.
- What book or series got you into reading?
The Angelina Ballerina Series is what got me into reading. After I finished reading them, I started writing Angelina Ballerina fanfiction at the age of 5 and then I started writing original works.
- What questions would you ask your favorite authors?
How are you so amazing? How do you write so amazingly? But in all seriousness, I’d probably ask them how they get inspiration and ask them questions about their writing and editing processes.
- What challenges do you think starting a blog will be the hardest to overcome?
School stress. I started blogging before finals so I have some experience under my belt, but next year is going to be a whirlwind in terms of stress. But if I continue to keep the schedule button as my best friend, I think I’ll be able to handle it.
- When did you start reading?
I started reading when I was very very little, and the Angelina Ballerina Series is the first series that I recall.
- Where do you read?
Everywhere. In my room. In the car. In class. *shhhh* I don’t need a set space to read, nor do I have favorite spot to read. Most of the times I’ll get so lost in the book’s setting that my setting doesn’t matter.
- What kinds of books do you like to read?
I like to read YA contemporary, fantasy, and sci-fi. I also enjoy reading poetry. One of my favorite summer reads is Alex, Approximately (look out for the review next week!). It’s swoon-worthy, light, and made me feel the way that Rachel feels in the gif.
I hope this post helped you all get to know me better. If you have any other questions, feel free to leave them in the comments!
Happy reading, happy writing, and happy blogging!
