Hi everybody, and welcome to Tag Thursday. Since I’m so new to the blogging world (It’s only been a week!), I’ve decided to do the Newbie Tag that I found @ Hammock of Books. I’m so excited to share this with all of you.
Why did you start this blog?
I love to write, and I’ve been an avid reader all my life. I’ve been telling stories since I could walk (Ok, maybe not) and the idea of starting a blog and joining the reader/author community was super exciting!
What are some fun and unique things you can bring to book blogging?
I don’t think there’s anything unique about me, really. But I hope people will love to read everything I write about.
What are you most excited about with your new blog?
Knowing that people are reading what I post and want to read more. (I already have three followers! 😆) I also want to be a part of this community, be a reviewer, talk about books, authors, everything. I love reading other people’s comments, reviews(especially the angry ones), and I just want to gush over books. This blog is my ticket into this wonderful world.
Why do you love reading?
To escape the woes of everyday life. To enter a world where things are interesting and fun. To become somebody I’m not and live a new life for a day. Reading is also my inspiration to write.
What books or series got you into reading?
I started out with Cam Jansen (the mysteries in the book seemed so complex to me at that age but now I can’t stand them, haha). I really got into Mystery/Crime because of the Nancy Drew Series. Back then, I ADORED Nancy, Bess, and George. (In another life, I hope to be a Private Investigator.)
What questions would you ask your favorite authors?
How do you ever finish a manuscript and actually get it published? I’ve
never been able to finish one finished two and I’ve scrapped both. 🙄😌
What challenges do you think starting a blog will be hardest to overcome?
Numbers are a big thing for me. (I’ve been checking the Stats section nonstop, LOL). I’m trying to remind myself not to get too worked up about it, but we’ll see.
I’m also worried about writing quality content and being as positive as possible, especially in reviews. (I’m kind of critical.)
When did you start reading?
Earliest memory is in the third grade, but I’ve probably been reading since before that. I vividly remember the third grade because my favorite teacher taught me then, and she recommended Running Out of Time by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I loved that book to pieces.
Where do you read?
My room if I’m at home. Otherwise, I borrow a bunch of e-books when I go out and I read on the go.
What kind of books do you like to read?
YA, New Adult – Mystery, Crime, Thriller, Suspense, Historical Mystery, and stuff along that line. I read some Dystopia as well but not as often.
Wow! That was pretty fun to do and I’m so very excited to see other new bloggers try this out. So, if you’re new to the blog-o-sphere, I tag YOU!
