Happy new year bookworms! I can’t believe we’ve jumped into 2018 already, where did the time go?!
As 2018 marks my first year of blogging (June) I wanted to do a little Q&A to bring in the new year. I won’t be making any resolutions, they’re just not my bag, but I will be shooting for some goals, which I shall add at the end of this post.
Once again, I wish you all the best for the new year!
✴ Where is your favourite place to read?
I do most of my reading on the sofa once the kids are in bed. I love reading in bed, but unfortunately that’s not an option right now.
✴ What’s your least favourite book that you’ve ever read?
Given To The Sea by Mindy McGinnis. Don’t get me started on that book!
✴ Physical or E-book?
I love holding a book, there’s just something delightful about it! But I have read a lot more E-books recently than I used to.
✴ Who is your favourite author?
THAT is a tough question. For a long time is has been J.K Rowling and it still probably is, but I really enjoy Anna Banks and I’ve recently discovered D.H Nevins, she’s incredibly talented and just an awesome person!
✴ Favourite book quote?
‘Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light’ – Dumbledore – J.K Rowling.
✴ Favourite Harry Potter book?
I always thought this was The Order Of The Phoenix, but I’ve recently changed my mind and it’s actually The Half-blood Prince.
✴ If you could transport yourself into any book for a day, what would it be and why?
Definitely Harry Potter! I’ve always wanted to be a witch and explore Hogwarts, drink some butter beer and pet a Hippogriff. My letter is WAY late!
✴ What advice do you have for new bloggers?
Be yourself, do what YOU want to do, don’t feel pressured to conform to other bloggers. Be social and make friends, that’s the best advice I could give!
✴ What is it like being a book blogger?
If you love books, then it’s honestly the best! Sharing your love of books and communicating with other people like yourself is awesome. It can get stressful if you have reviews to post and such, but what isn’t? I enjoy putting my heart and soul into something I truly love and I made tons of friends!
✴ What made you get into blogging?
Honestly, I was sick of not doing anything. I’m a fulltime mum and that takes up 90% of my life. But I wanted to do something for me, to have an outlet when I’m stressed or anxious. Writing has always been my peace since I was young and I adore books, so what better choice was there?
✴ What’s your favourite type of book to review?
A good one? Haha! My favourite genre’s are YA, NA, Horror and Fantasy. I also prefer reviewing a standalone book as to a series.
✴ Most anticipated read of 2018?
Gosh there’s too many! I will say Shadowsong by S.Jae-Jones is my number one! But I’m also pumped for Legendary by Stephanie Garber and Ace Of Shades by Amanda Foody.
✴ How many books do you want to read in 2018?
My Goodreads goal this year is 50. I went over my goal of 40 last year by reading 45, so I think 50 is a good challenge. Feel free to add me on Goodreads, my page is in the sidebar ☺.
Now as I said, I don’t like to make resolutions. The majority of people only set them because it’s ‘new year’ and it’s a fad. I don’t go for that. I like to set small goals throughout the year to keep me motivated.
This year I’d like to lose some more baby weight, so my goal is a stone by May.
I’d also like to be more organised, so I plan to get a journal and try to set myself mini goals every month.
I’d like to try and push myself a bit more. My anxiety is the worst it’s been in years and I want to fight it! I have a few events planned this month that I’m terrified of, but I’m going to push through!
That’s all I have for now, I’ll update you later on in the year.
Do you have any goals or resolutions for 2018? I’d love to know!
Thank you to everyone who submitted questions for this post, I appreciate you all!
Until next time ❣
