Book Blog ‘Newbie’ Tag

I found this tag circulating and thought I would use this as a starting point to introduce readers as to who I am and why I am doing this!

1 – Why did you start this blog?

I read so many books and enjoy writing down my thoughts so I figured why not start a blog? I can only hope that one day I will have some viewers and a following! Reading other blogs out there has given me the inspiration and push to finally make my own.

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

I do not stick with one particular genre. I know most people have a ‘favorite’ but I truly don’t. I think there is something to offer from every genre. It’s all about the writing that comes from the author and whether or not it is interesting.

3 – What are you most excited for about this new blog?

As ‘cliche’ as it is, I am just excited to be able to share my love for books with other people.

4 – Why do you love reading?

I love reading for the same reason that many others love watching movies. I enjoy escaping reality for awhile and putting myself into different ‘worlds’. It expands my creative thinking. 😉 I don’t understand why people wouldn’t love it.

5 – What book or series got you into reading?

That is a tough one because I’ve always ‘enjoyed’ reading, but I did not become an avid reader until I was around 23 years old and still in the Coast Guard. I explain this in my ‘About’ page; however, what got me into reading wasn’t just one book but being stuck at sea with nothing to do but work and READ is what really made me fall in love with it.

6 – What questions would you ask your favorite authors?

Well I am pretty quiet, so to be honest, nothing I am sure. Though I do wonder how they all did it, and how they made it because getting published and becoming popular is extremely hard these days.

7 – What challenges do you think starting a blog will be the hardest to overcome?

Obviously getting a viewership is important to me. I would like to have a following of some sort, whether that is big or small; at this point I do not care. I am also a full-time college student seeking my degree in Business Marketing. School and the real life will get in the way for sure.

8 – When did you start reading?

I’ve read since I was a little kid..though I did not become an avid reader until my early 20’s.

9 – Where do you read?

Mostly on the couch or in bed; however, I will read anywhere; the beach, the bus, drs office.. etc.

10 – What kind of books do you like to read?

I love fiction and nonfiction and all different types of genres, but I have never been a big fan of ‘self-help.’

11- What are you currently reading?
