A (Very Late) Book Blog Newbie Tag

Hey everyone! As you can probably tell from the title of this post, I probably should have done this instead of my first post on February 2. I never even did a introduction post, just jumping into reviews. And I’m pretty sure I changed my blog theme like 3 times before figuring out one I really liked.

Also, I found this from Rania @ Rania’s Rambling Reads. (Go check out her blog!)

And now, let’s start!

Why did you want to start a book blog?

I know I’m supposed to put some long and philosophical answer about reading and it’s impact on me, but, to be honest, I made this blog just for fun. I don’t expect it to grow super large or anything, I’m just blogging for me.

What are some fun and unique things you can bring to book blogging?

I feel like one unique thing that every blogger has is their narrative voice. Everyone’s blog posts sound a little different, because we’re all different people! (Yeah, I know that sounded incredibly cringe-worthy. ) And I’m still developing my writing style, but I can already tell that it’s unique, you know?

As for the things I will be posting on this blog, you’ll be able to find;

  • Book Reviews
  • Book Tags
  • Book Lists/Recommendations
  • Book Playlists
  • Monthly Wrap-Ups
  • Discussion Posts Created by . . . Yours Truly!

Why do you love reading? Did you always love reading?

Wow, this sounds like one of the first posts I wrote, How did you become interested in reading? How did reading impact you? In short, I never really liked reading before the summer of 2020, when a neighbor loaned me my first ever YA fantasy, Children of Blood and Bone, also known as one of my favorite books of all time. After that, I just . . . found a bunch of other books I loved.

I love reading because watching about characters go on their own adventure is so much easier than facing the world.

I probably sound so pathetic when I say that but it’s so true! I think it’s really relatable for most bookworms.

When and where do you read?

I usually read before I go to sleep, though I will read at other times. My ideal reading place/position is on my bed, a blanket around me, AirPods in and playing some music depending on the book I’m reading (What Music Should You Listen to While Reading?).

What kind of books do you like to read?

Hmm. I’ll read anything and everything YA, but my favorite genres are fantasy and sci-fi.

What is one book that has been on your TBR for ages?

The Hate U Give. It’s been on my TBR for over a year, and I still haven’t read it.

Who is your favorite author?

Uhh . . . hello? What kind of question is that? I can’t just choose. But, I’ll make a list.

In no particular order;

Marissa Meyer, Sabaa Tahir, Marie Lu, Brandon Sanderson, Rick Riordon, Leigh Bardugo, Neal Shusterman, Holly Black, Victoria Aveyard, and more!

What is your favorite book and why?

Again, what kind of question is this? How am I supposed to choose one book? Here’s a list instead;

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, Scythe by Neal Shusterman, The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, Skyward by Brandon Sanderson, Renegades by Marissa Meyer, An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and more.

What’s are some non-bookish facts about you?

  1. I love photography. I’m not good at it by any means, but if you want to see, I have some pictures of mine at the bottom at my About page.
  2. I really want to become an author someday. I have so many ideas floating around in my head, and I’m planning out my first book right now. It really helps that I have an amazing writing buddy, a friend from Goodreads. I also am going to be participating in Camp NaNoWriMo in April and I’m really excited!
  3. Unlike a lot of bookworms, I’m not really introverted, I’m an ambivert.
  4. Personality quizzes are my best friend. I do so many, it’s not even normal.

What are some bookish facts about you?

Ooh. Here we go:

  1. My favorite tropes are banter, female assassins/fighters/badasses in general, enemies to lovers, platonic relationships, morally grey characters and villain origin stories.
  2. I really hope in the future I’ll have a small library room in my house. A girl can wish!
  3. I hate when people talk to me when I’m reading. Like, can’t you tell I’m dealing with something more important than whatever you want?

I tag whoever hasn’t done this tag yet! Bye, bookish friends!

  1. I had no idea about this tag! I think I’ll make it my next post 😀
    I really liked reading your answers 🙂 And I love your photos!
    Arghh, I’m totally with you on people talking while your reading – it’s so frustrating 😑 especially when you’re trying to be polite and listen to them but then they don’t take the hint that you want to focus on your book.
    I love the hate to love trope in romance but I hate insta-love!

      1. I’m going to go for 30k this April! Hopefully I can get to 50,000 in November! My goals for April will be to finish my 2nd draft (maybe start a 3rd) and start a new story! I have so many ideas I don’t know which one I’ll choose haha!
