I was humbled and delighted to find I had been ‘tagged’ to answer eleven questions. Thank you Geoffrey Valentine at High Tea Dreams for nominating me to do this. I enjoy reading your reviews very much.
1 How long have you been a blogger?
Since December 2012, just over two and a half years and it has been a pleasure to learn and do something new.
2 At what point do you think you will stop?
When I am no longer able to read books and type!
3 What is the best thing?
Reading reviews of books I have read from kindred book bloggers.
4 What is the worst thing?
Finding a book that isn’t for me. I would ideally like to love every book I read.
5 How long does it take you to find/create pictures for your post?
A few minutes, I screen shot covers for my book review posts and look for stock photos for anything else.
6 Who is your book crush?
It’s been a while but my last book crush was Ben Hope from the Scot Mariani books. I love a deep, moody and capable hero and am willing to overlook the smoking as he’s only on paper.
7 What author would you like to have on your blog?
I still get incredibly starstruck when an author contacts me after I have written a review about their book and that often leads to total mental block and I end up responding with the most nerdy cringeworthy tweet or comment. I would love to have Tess Gerritsen on my blog.
8 What do you wear when you write your blog posts?
Usually a couple of cats on my lap!! But seriously something comfy and light I can do a few yoga poses in.
9 How long does it take you to prepare?
Minutes. I like to capture my feelings on a book after I’ve reached the last page and express what lasting impression I have of the book. If I have read something that has been particularly affecting I may choose to sleep on it before writing a review, but that is very rare. My reviews appear, on average, within 15 minutes of my finishing a book
10 How do you feel about the book/blogger community/culture?
I love it. I spend more time reading and finding blogs than writing them which suits me fine.
11 What do you think one should do to get a successful blog?
Success is extremely subjective but I think keeping at it and posting frequently is imperative to being a blogger.
