I just want to thank Jamie for creating this tag – I think it’s a great way to get to know other bloggers a bit more, and see answers to questions that probably don’t come up naturally in other posts! I also want to thank Sofii for tagging me! And now, without further ado:
Where do you typically write your blog posts?
I typically write them while in lounging in bed on my laptop at the weekend, and push them out when I’m ready from my phone during the week. However, I do write some while on the go from phone if I don’t anticipate being near my laptop, and fix any formatting issues or autocorrect problems I missed as soon as I can back to my laptop.
How long does it generally take you to write a book review?
Typically an hour-ish? I’ve not really taken a note of it, as I’ve not been doing it very long! But I’d say at least an hour. I take notes while reading and note down the pages of any quotes I’d like to include. If I didn’t do this it’d take me a lot longer!!😂
When did you start your book blog?
Only 1 month ago! I’m a complete newbie!!
What is the worst thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
I wouldn’t really say I’ve found any. The only thing I could say is that I have to admit I end up down the rabbit hole of the internet – I get completely absorbed in reading other bloggers lovely posts. It takes up my book reading time!! 😂
What is the best thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
I *think* I have Social Anxiety – this is giving me a chance to have the courage to reach out to people, and just talk to people!! It’s also great to meet other book-lovers, especially those that read similar to me, and finally have conversations about books! – my friends either don’t read, or don’t read the same genres as me. I’m still getting to grips with forming my ideas at times, to articulate my thoughts in the right way – I’m a bit of out practise – but already I feel so much happier and not so isolated. It’s really great getting to know people through my blog and bookstagram.
What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?
Ooh, that’s a hard question. I don’t have all that many yet! I’ve really enjoyed writing them all to be honest. It’s like it releases endorphins for me! I did quite like writing my monthly wrap-up for February, as it gave me a chance to look back over the thoughts and feelings I had for my books. I feel it helped rejuvenate me after my reading slump!
What is your favourite type of blog post to write?
Reviews – it’s nice to try and order my thoughts and put a bit more meaning to my reading experience.
When do you typically write?
Weekend mornings. But I have also written in the evenings if I’ve some free time and don’t particularly feel like reading – in fact I think the answer is whenever I have some free time that I don’t use to read!! But I do consistently do mornings at the weekend.
Do you review every book you read?
So far, yes – with the exception of a super short story I read which I just added some thoughts to Goodreads about it instead.
How do you write your book reviews? With a cup of coffee or tea? With Netflix? Cuddled with your fur baby?
Always with a cup of tea. Sometimes some snacks. And usually something on in the background – either Netflix or Spotify. If I’m on my laptop, I’ll have OneNote open down one side of the screen with my notes. If I’m on my phone I’ll flick back and forth between the OneNote app.
When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing the book? Two weeks after finishing the book?
I try to do them straight after, while it’s all fresh in my mind as much as possible and I have all the feels!! If I did it any later, they’d probably only be a couple of sentences.
How often do you post?
I’m hoping twice a week, Mondays and Thursdays (unless I have some book reviews) – but so far I’ve been bad at sticking to it!
And that concludes it! Hopefully you know a bit more about me (whether you wanted to or not! 😂). And I’m going to take a leaf out of Sofii’s book, and tag the last five people to follow my blog!
