Why Did You Start Blogging and Why Have You Kept Blogging?
I started my blog a couple of years ago because I really wanted to be a bigger part of the book community! I have always been a self confessed bookworm but to be honest, not many of my friends and family are big readers. I really wanted to find a group of people and a place where I could discuss the books I’m reading and review them and I’m so glad I did. I’ve kept blogging because I love my blogging friends and love hearing everyone else’s opinions on the books they are reading too! It’s also led to some great opportunities to read ARCs and I love taking photos for my bookstagram! I adore this community.
What Is Your Favourite Type of Blog Post to Write?

What Are Your Proudest Blogging Moments?
It was probably when I got my first physical ARC sent to me – it’s such a nice feeling to know that there are people who respect your opinion enough to want you to read and review a book they are publishing! I also felt so happy when my blog reached over 500 followers – that felt like a lovely milestone. And every time I’m approved to read a book on Netgalley I am so pleased!
What Are Your Hobbies Outside of Blogging?
I have a few other hobbies besides reading and blogging! I love yoga, theatre, art, dog walks and I’m trying to learn calligraphy slowly but surely! I’m also a university student studying costume design so I do a lot of sewing and drawing, both of which I love although when there’s a deadline, it can be pretty stressful!

What Are Your Top Three Pet Peeves?
- Groups of people who walk really slowly in front of me and take up the whole pavement!
- Men (sorry but it’s almost always men) who spit on the ground as they are walking around in public.
- Lying. Untrustworthiness in general actually, I like people to be true to their word and value reliability, unless there is a genuine reason they can’t be, which I would obviously understand.
What’s Something Your Followers Don’t Know About You?
Hmmm, I’m not sure! Maybe that I studied Ballet for about 15 years, I went to about 4 classes a week in my mid-teens! It’s something I still do occasionally but way less than I used to! I still love watching Ballet though, in fact I like any kind of dancing really!
