I’m back! It’s been a few days since I’ve posted anything. Oops! June is the busiest month and probably not the best time for a new blog. I have two weddings, my mom’s 50th birthday party, and a major cabin trip with friends. I literally have no weekends free until July. Is this what adulthood feels like? At any rate, I found this tag on hatterell’s blog. And on to the questions!
Why did you start this blog?
I would like to join the book community! I was in a major years-long reading slump and just last year discovered this amazing community. I’m falling back in love with reading and I’m trying to push myself into talking about it. Not very many of my irl friends read the same books I do, so here I am.
What are some fun and unique things you can bring to book blogging?
My adorable cats! …I’m only partially joking. I hope to bring a fresh perspective on some amazing books, or at least to spread the love of reading and share my favorite books to my fellow bookworms
What are you most excited about for this new blog?
I am excited to build my corner of the internet. I have eventual personal plans (mostly dreams at this point) that I would like to work out on this blog. I’m also pumped to share my bookish art projects eventually!
Why do you love reading?
Why don’t I love reading? I love escaping and learning about people through reading.
What challenges about starting a book blog do you think will be the hardest to overcome?
Ugh, staying on schedule is definitely it. I’m trying to post at least once a week for now, but eventually I would like to set up a regular schedule and post on consistent days each week.
When did you start reading?
When I left the womb. My mother was always a huge reader and my father was the best storyteller. My dad had all the best voices and the best jokes. Most of the time he was too tired from his jobs to give us the full effect, but dad story night was the best night and that definitely shaped my love of reading.
Where do you read?
I don’t have a specific reading spot, but my favorite is to read in new places. I love to travel in the summer and I always have a book with me. Be prepared for some book/lake shots on Twitter! (I’m trying to do this whole social media thing)
What kind of books do you like to read?
Since I’ve been getting back into reading, this has changed quite a bit. My favorite genre will always be fantasy, it’s the closest to my heart. I’ve been trying to read more sci fi and I always end up reading raunchy romance instead. I also have the occcasional horror or thriller burst and do read the rare contemporary here and there. I have a soft spot for flowery language and genre-bending. If you have any suggestions for me, please let me know!
That’s it for the tag, but thank you for reading! I’m always welcome to any feedback or constructive criticism. Have a great day!
