1. Where do you typically write your blog posts?
The place I love to write the most is in my bed, but because I’m not home that often I really write whenever I have a few minutes to spare. It can be during a lunch break, on the train, in a waiting room… Sometimes even during a really boring lecture!
2. How long does it generally take you to write a book review?
It takes me quite some time, I think 1-2 hours average. My Top Ten Tuesday posts take me the longest. Reviews take me only an hour and long TTT’s take me up to 2.5 hours sometimes.
3. When did you start your book blog?
I started my blog officially in August 2017 but I was writing reviews on my Goodreads since April (I think). I also switched from blogger to wordpress.com to wordpress.org in the first month. I’m pretty happy with me WordPress.org site at the moment and although I had to pay something. It’s definitely worth it.
4. What is the worst thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
“Worst” makes it sound like blogging is a chore or something!! I love blogging. But, if I have to pick a thing it’s probably that when I get sick or don’t feel so well and I’m not able to blog as often as I normally do, my blog really suffers from it almost immediately, it’s probably because my blog is quite new and doesn’t have a solid base yet.
5. What is the best thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
Finally I can talk about books as much as I want! Some of my friends read books, but not as much or otherwise completely different genres. It’s quite frustrated that, when you read a crazy good (or crazy bad) book, you can’t vent you emotions to anyone. On the internet, there is always someone who wants to talk about the book you just read and it’s amazing. It’s also possible to keep talking about the same books, because there is always someone who isn’t (yet) tired of me talking about it!
6. What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?
7. What is your favorite type of blog post to write?
I love doing Top Ten Tuesday posts (a list of my TTT’s). It’s so much fun because there are so many people joining in every week and it’s so much fun to all discuss books every week on a completely different section.
8. When do you typically write?
Like I said earlier as an answer to question 1, I tend to write whenever I can. But, if I can choose, I like to write in the early evening or late afternoon.
9. Do you review every book you read?
No, absolutely not. I mostly review Young Adult/fantasy books on this blog because I really want to have a target audience (it’s easier to write if you know what kind of people are most likely to read your posts). I read many other books that really don’t have a place on my blog, like classics or serious adult books.
10. How do you write your book reviews? With a cup of coffee or tea? With Netflix? Cuddled with your fur baby?
My favourite setting is with a cup of tea, some music, a scented candle and my pets around to hug when ever I don’t know what to write anymore.
11. When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing the book? Two weeks after finishing the book?
I try to write them as fast as possible, but sometimes it can take a few weeks. I try to take notes while reading so I don’t forget the things I want to say in my review.
12. How often do you post?
I was sick in February so my schedule was a bit of a mess lately to be honest, but normally I write posts every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
