I hope you have your coffee and are sitting comfortably because I’m doing The Book Blogger Insider Tag today. So if you’re ready, let’s dive in …
Where do you typically write your posts?
Usually in the bedroom but, I must add, not while in the bed, or during rompy pompy, okay? I have a small corner of the room with a desk [see previous photographic evidence].
How long does it generally take you to write a book review?
Anywhere between an hour and a couple of days.
When did you start your book blog?
I’ve been blogging—and online—for a long time, but it wasn’t till 2017 that I started book blogging, and concentrating on doing book reviews. I think my first post was a review of MR. CHURCHILL’S SECRETARY on January 14, 2017, and I wasn’t polite.
What’s the worse thing about having a book blog, in your opinion?
Eh, nothing … not really. In my opinion!
What’s the best thing about having a book blog, in your opinion?
Being able to share my thoughts on a particular book with other people that, even if they don’t agree with my review, still read and comment. Also, meeting other book bloggers. And books … lots of books!
What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?
Fun? Hmm … the last one? No, really, I had so much fun reading and then writing up my review for DIAL A FOR AUNTIES by the budding comedian and talented Jesse Q. Sutanto. The book was great fun to read and so easy to review.
What is your favourite type of blog post to write?
I love doing memes like Jana’s TOP TEN TUESDAY and have fun doing these kind of Q&As, and who doesn’t love a good book list or book haul post, right?
When do you typically write?
First thing in the morning, early, though occasionally I have been known to be awake enough, and written a post in the evening.
Do you review every book you read?
In the words of Norrie from Reading Under the Blankie: ‘Aw hell, no!‘ Life’s too short.
How do you write your book reviews: with a cup of coffee, watching Netflix, or cuddled with a fur baby?
Usually with a drink at hand, coffee (if it’s usually early in the morning), and definitely without distractions. And that’s a no to furry things, unless it’s stuffed and mounted, or one of my fav teddy bears—Hudson Bay, Mckenzie Moose, and Matt Smith are little to no help, though!
When do you write your book reviews; right after finishing the book? Two weeks later?
Usually, within a day or two, at most, while the story is still fresh in my mind. There’s no point if it’s going to take longer, I obviously don’t want to write the review.
How often do you post?
I used to post near on every day, but then, you get burn out quite quickly doing that. So now I post when I either have a review I want to share, or when I have an article about a topic I want to share.
And there you go, more trivia about me than you could possibly ever want to know.
