I’m here with another book tag! Thank you so much to Adrianna at For the Love of Books for tagging me in this! I loved reading her answers and I hope you all enjoy mine!
This tag was created by Amber @ Du Liver.
When did you start blogging and what was your first review?
My very first post was in May of 2016 and it was a review of Any Duchess Will Do by Tessa Dare. I wanted to start my blog off with a bang (ha, see what I did there!) and review a book I had recently finished and loved!
Who/what inspired you to start blogging?
A bunch of the people I interact with the most on Goodreads had blogs and their posts always looked so fun. I decided I wanted to give it a go!
What is a blog-related goal that you have?
My short term blog goal is to get to 500 followers. I know this number is nothing to a lot of people but for me that’s a big deal!
What is one thing you wish someone told you about blogging?
It’s a lot of work. Seriously, on the days I’m not working, I spend most of my time writing reviews and other posts (when I’m not reading).
What was your biggest blog-related accomplishment?
I think the first time I was contacted and asked to host a stop for a book tour! I was so humbled and thankful that they thought to reach out to me. It was for a book from a series I enjoyed which made it even more special!
What types of posts do you enjoy writing?
I love doing list posts like Top Ten Tuesday and Top 5 Wednesdays! They’re always so much fun and I feel like I get the most interaction with my followers with those posts.
Where do you usually blog? What does your setup look like?
I blog either on when I’m sitting on my couch upstairs, or in the comfy chair in the living room.
What was your last 5-star read?
Sadie by Courtney Summers. It’s a gripping read!
What was your last 1-star read?
I usually don’t rate books I DNF, but the last 1-star I gave a book was Roar by Cora Carmack. I didn’t make it very far into the book and knew I had to stop. Definitely not for me.
What are three words that make you pick up a book?
Fantasy, Adventure, Enemies-to-Lovers
What is your Hogwarts House?
My heart says Slytherin, but my head says Ravenclaw.
What is your favorite reading environment?
I love reading on my couch in the library, especially in the evenings and getting cozy with a warm blanket. I also love reading in bed – there’s nothing better than that!
What advice would you give to new bloggers?
Be patient. It takes awhile to really get your feet under you when you first start blogging, but once you get in a rhythm it becomes much easier.
Be social. Don’t be afraid to comment and interact with other bloggers, twitter peeps, and bookstagrammers! That’s the easiest way to grow a following, plus it’s the best way to have fun and make friends!
Be you. Don’t feel like you have to do something or read something just because it’s popular or you feel like all the other blogs are doing it. Read what you like, write what you like.
