Good morning folks. It’s been a hot minute since I did a Q&A around here where the questions came from actual people on Twitter (as opposed to my Random Question Generator Q&A) and my blog followers have grown quite considerably since then. So if you’re new around here, first of all, hi! I’m so glad you could join us and second of all, here’s a little bit more about me and I’ll try and make my answers as interesting as possible but I can’t promise anything.
I’ve officially fallen down the “clickbait” hole. But ya no, in a world where 4 billion bloggers are all trying to achieve the same thing and all want dem viewz, you’ve gotta do what you can to stand out, haven’t you? Anyway, I pinched this tag from Hello Bexa (you can find her post here) partially because it looked fun and partially because I was a little stuck for July content ideas and you can’t go wrong with a tag every now and again. So here we are, with another tag post!
Earlier this year, I was sent a copy of No Sad Songs by Frank Morelli to review. Now I don’t usually accept review requests anymore; in fact, I never do. As much as I’d love to read all the books in the world, it’s simply no feasible for me to accept every book review request I get but sometime piqued my interest about this one so I decided to give it a go. I love YA and would love to explore it more and No Sad Songs was a good place to start, as it covers some sensitive topics as well and touching on all the typical “YA” type elements, such as teenage angst, school, friendship and crushes. Today I’m taking part in the blog tour for No Sad Songs and have a Q&A with the author, which I hope you enjoy!
Last month, I was lucky enough to receive a bookish subscription box from Magic Chest to review. If you read my review of that box here, you’ll know that I absolutely loved it. It was such a well put together box, with amazing contents and an incredible sounding book to go with it. Obviously, these incredible bookish subscription boxes don’t fall from the sky; there’s always some hard working individual/s behind them. So today, I’m having a chat with Klara, the brain-power and mastermind behind the Magic Chest box where we talk about what the box entails, inspiration and the inner workings of having your own business!
Once again, another book tag stolen from Kris from Boston Book Reader (thanks!) If you love books and fun bookish tags and posts, then her blog is the place to go! I’ve been really trying to up the amount of bookish themed content on my blog recently. I’m writing this in April and over the coming months, I have more book reviews scheduled than I have done in the past half a year! I’m really enjoying reading at the moment (I’m currently reading When Breath Becomes Air – if you’ve read it, please talk to me!) and blogging more about books takes me back to my roots in a way. Books are the reason I blog; without them I wouldn’t be here so I’ll always be eternally grateful to those wonderful little masterpieces.
A couple of years ago, I did a post called the “random questions generator Q&A” which was, well, what it says on the tin really. I found a random questions generator online, generated 10 random questions (blimey, imagine that!) and answered them in a Q&A! So I thought this would be a fun post to do again because you don’t know what questions you’re going to get and you’re likely going to be answering something a little different from the good old, “why did you start blogging?”. So, I generated 10 questions and I’m answering every question that came up and not skipping any – cos that’s cheating. Here’s what I got!
I haven’t done a bookish tag post in soooo long. I used to do a fair few of them in the early years of my blog, when I blogged predominantly about books but as of late, not many tags have come my way. So thank you to Kris from Boston Book Reader for tagging me in this one! It looks like fun and hopefully you’ll learn a bit more about my bookish loves, hates and habits!
