Hello everyone! Sorry about being absent the past few days, some exciting stuff has been happening recently. I’ve decided to apply for a job at Barnes and Noble and life is becoming a bit hectic right now, which is awesome because I’ve just felt like doing everything lately. Bookstagram, this blog (how’re you liking the new look?), BookTube, etc. I just like making myself busy.
Anyway, I had absolutely no idea what kind of post to write so I asked Bookslayerreads on Instagram and she suggested this tag for me to do, so I looked it up and decided to do it myself. I’m using Beaucoopbook‘s post as a reference for questions and whatnot so I don’t know who created it or whatnot, but let’s get started!
1. Answer the questions below
2. Credit the creator Jamie @ALittleSliceofJamie <- Okay well there’s the creater
3. Tag at least 5 people
4. Have fun!
Where do you typically write your blog posts?
Wherever my computer is currently at. But usually it’s either on my bed or at my desk. Not anywhere very interesting, to be honest.
How long does it generally take you to write a book review?
As in how long it takes me to write it when I’m actually sat down typing out the review or how long it takes me to sit down and decide to finally write a review? Because it can take me anywhere from a day to a month to get myself to write a book review because I can get so lazy when it comes to writing reviews. My procrastination is best when I’m both writing book reviews and doing school.
When did you start your book blog?
Well this question is always a tricky one to answer because I originally started off on Blogger, then I moved over to Weebly for a bit before finally deciding on migrating over here to WordPress. My blog’s 1st birthday was about a week ago according to WordPress.
What is the worst thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
I hate these questions because I genuinely love book blogging and the only time I don’t have a fun time doing this is because I pressure myself to write a review or a post a certain amount of times a week, but that’s my own fault, not my followers. Also, a pet peeve of mine is when I have, let’s say 20 likes on a post, but then maybe 1 comment. As someone who tries and comments on nearly every post she reads this tends to get on my nerves.
What is the best thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
This will probably sound cliche, cheesy, and repetitive all at once, but the community. That will always and forever be my answer to a question like this. We book readers are literally the best community out there. We’re nice to each other and most importantly, we respect each other’s opinions and differences. In a world of discrimination and hate and judgmental people, the book community is an oasis and I thank you all for being part of that in your own ways.
What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?
Jeez Louise how do I pick? I guess I’ll go with Does Popularity Mean I’ll Like It? Tag because I always like bashing hyped up books (and letting y’all know which ones I thought were worth the hype as well).
What is your favorite type of blog post to write?
I’ll probably have to go with tags on this one, but I also love putting together Top 5 Wednesday posts. They’re always so much fun to do and I like seeing other’s opinions on the topics and what I chose for each question.
When do you typically write?
I have literally no structure at all or writing schedule. I probably should, but if I don’t feel like writing, it’d evident in my posts and/or I just won’t be able to write even five coherent words. It’s that bad, so I don’t have much of a schedule and just write whenever I feel like it.
Do you review every book you read?
I used to try and do this but then I got so behind on reviews and I had a list of at least 5 books to review, where around 3-4 of them I had read a few months prior and hadn’t remembered enough to actually review them so I decided to not do that anymore. If I genuinely feel like a review is worth writing for a book, I’ll write it, but if not, I will just rate it on Goodreads with maybe a sentence or two saying how I felt about it. Or if I don’t have all that much to say about a book, but still want people to have a better idea about what I thought, I’ll write a mini-review.
How do you write your book reviews? With a cup of coffee or tea? With Netflix? With your furry baby?
Well I’ll never get any writing done whatsoever if I turn on Netflix or YouTube. It just won’t happen. Coffee tends to be the beverage I drink when I write any blog post, and then tea is something I drink at night when I read. It always differs, really.
When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing a book? Two weeks after finishing a book?
Like I mentioned earlier, it differs all the time. I usually don’t write a book review right after I finish a book because it takes time in order for me to gather all of my thoughts and compose them enough to write a coherent review for y’all. I just haven’t felt like writing a review for a book I finished a few weeks ago, but I do have things to say about it and opinions to share with y’all so a review for said book will be written, I just haven’t gotten the proper motivation to do so yet.
How often do you post?
Some weeks I post more than others, but I do have Top 5 Wednesday that I do most Wednesdays as well as book tags and the occasional book review so on average I think I post 3-4 posts a week.
Who Do I Tag?
Like always, you don’t have to do this tag if you don’t feel like doing it, and if you’re interested in doing this tag but I didn’t tag you, please feel free to do so! It’s open to all of y’all to do!
And again, please let me know what you think of my new website! There are still a few kinks I need to work on but overall I like it.
