#BookTag – Meet the Book Blogger

My thanks to Bibliomavens as the original creator of the tag. I’ve been writing and rewriting this post for months now because this is actually an amazing #BookTag to introduce myself to the book blogging world and I’ve wanted it to be “perfect”. However, I’ve come to realise that there is no such thing and, therefore, all I can do is just write the thing and send it out into the world.

So, here are the rules:

  • Nominated bloggers can nominate ten other bloggers.
  • Use the same questions from the tag.
  • Tag the original creator (Bibliomavens) and the blogger who tagged you

Meet the Blogger Book Tag Questions

Who is your all-time favourite book character?

This question was both easy and hard. I’ve read countless books with man amazing characters but whenever I’m asked this question, my mind immediately goes to Jo March from Little Women. I first read it when I was about 8 years old and I fell in love with Jo. She was a tomboy and obsessed with books – my kindred spirit. Over the years, I’ve come to identify a little it with each one of the March sisters but Jo will always hold a special place in my heart.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which book would you take with you? (Survival books do not count)

The Lord of the Rings.

What’s your most unpopular book opinion?

I don’t know if this is unpopular but I think brand-new books are overrated. I mostly prefer shopping at second-hand bookshops.

What’s your weirdest bookish habit?

This is leading on from the previous question! While I love second-hand books, I sometimes do buy new books. However, I always lend it to someone else first so they can open it up and it can get those crease lines on the spine so it then looks used.

What character would you bring to a family event as your fake partner?

Faramir from The Lord of the Rings would be my second choice. If we’re allowed to delve into the world of TV for this question, then Rory Williams from Doctor Who. He is the perfect man.

What made you decide to start a book blog?

I wanted to share my love of reading and writing. Also, I’m going to be totally honest here – I’m trying to make money online by selling book and writing related products. I have an Etsy store where I sell printable bookmarks and printable stationery packs (I will be adding more products in the future) and this seemed like a logical extension of that.

What about reading and books do you love the most?

I love being able to lose myself in another world – being able to fly or do magic or fall in love then get my heart broken – and to delve into the enormity of the human experience.

What is your field of study/desired profession/current profession?

I have a Bachelors degree in Journalism and I worked in media a a journalist and copy editor for a few years.

I have always wanted to be in publishing and to work as a book editor. Maybe I’ll do that one day.

But now, I work as a proofreader for an international online high school. I

What are some book recommendations that became your favourites/obsessions?

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.

I only recently read this book but a friend of mine had been telling me about it for years. It’s one of her favourites and would recommend it to everyone. I wouldn’t call it an obsession but when I finally read it, I really enjoyed it.

What is the book you shove down everyone’s throat?

The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes. I both hate and love this book. I read it at a time when I was very emotionally vulnerable and it tore my heart to shreds.
