How I started my blog:
I started my blog almost exactly 2 year ago now! At that time I was watching a lot of BookTube, and still do, and wanted my own platform to talk about books! I did have a bookstagram account, still have, but that wasn’t satisfying enough for me. I didn’t feel like I could write full reviews there! And share my thoguhts on other bookish topics.
Then randomly one weekend I was bored and started researching how you’re supposed to start your own website/blog, and got very excited! And a week later I had started my own blog!
So quite a short story, and basically I was just bored, and wanted to share my love for reading!
Only blog about things you want to, not about things you feel others want to read! If you write about something you feel passionate about, people will feel that and will enjoy reading it!
Try and engage with other bloggers, that makes the experience even more fun! We are all here because we love books, so we all love to talk about books!
- Favourite novella?
Binti by Nnedi Okorafor!
2. Favourite cover of a 2020 book?
I really love the cover for Chain of gold by Cassandra Clare, even though I did not necessarily love the book..
3. Have you completely changed your mind about a novel you were reading because of its ending?
Mm can’t think of any..?!
4. What is the last book you DNF’ed/wished you had DNF’ed?
The last book I DNF’ed is The unspoken name by AK Larkwood.
But to be honest I wished I DNF’ed Sky in the deep by Adrienne Young! Really wasn’t a fan of that one!
5. What was the last book you rated four stars, and why?
At the moment of writing this, Animal farm by George Orwell! Such an interesting story, it took a way darker route then that had expected!
6. Something you removed from your TBR?
I’m assuming this means a book I removed from my TBR without actually reading it. And I honestly don’t know. My TBR is only on my GoodReads, since I do not really own unread books. I add and remove books from my GoodReads TBR constantly, and I don’t think GoodReads has a way to see the books you removed..
7. What’s the book that has been on your TBR the longest?
According to GoodReads it is A monster calls by Patrick Ness, which I realize I really need to read!
8. Are there any subgenres of your favourite genre you don’t often reach for?
Such a specific question haha! I love all types of fantasy haha!
I really have a hard time with subgenres, there are too many of them and they are all so specific.
9. Have you ever given a second chance to an author after disliking one of their books? If so, what happened?
Mm I guess Rainbow Rowell. I first read Eleanor and Park, which I thought was okay, then I read Fangirl which I DNF’ed and currently I’m reading Carry on, which so far is okay.
Another one could be Claire Legrand, I didn’t really like Furyborn, but I still tried Sawkill girls, which I also did not like. So I officially gave up on Claire Legrand.
10. Are there any books you don’t get to talk about as often as you’d like?
Ooh always, I often forget myself that there are so many books out there that I love!
To name some; Dry, We are okay, Vengeful, Timekeeper, binti, This savage song!
My questions, I’m sorry I’m going to be very lazy and copy the questions..!:

Great tag! I do love the cover of that Cassandra Clare book, I’ll admit I’ll the covers for that series have made me want to read it!
Ooh this is definitely a good cover buy!
I really do need to read Vengeful… I seem to do this thing with Schwab’s books where I just read the first one… and that’s it!!
Ooh you really should continue! It is very good, some new characters get introduced, and they are amazing!
Great post! I love the Chain of Gold cover too. So beautiful!
I’m so curious to how to covers of the sequels will look like!
Chain of Gold really is beautiful.
I’m also not really a fan of Rainbow Rowell, I didn’t find any of her books or short stories I tried to be that remarkable. And I probably should reread Binti, it’s been so long since I read it, but I remember really liking it too.
Loved reading your answers!
I just got Pumpkinheads from the library, but honestly I think it is her last work that I will try haha!
Binti is amazing! I should reread it as well!
Animal Farms is really such an interesting read! I remember reading it to my sister for one of her high school classes because she was lazy so I read it with different voices.
Oh that’s so cool though! And this is such a good book to do different voices for!
