Today is all about getting to know our fellow Armchair BEA participants. We all have to answer 5 questions about ourselves then visit some other participating bloggers to learn more about them.
This is my first year participating in Armchair BEA and I am quite excited about it!
So, here are the answers to my questions:
1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
I have been blogging since mid last year on another blog I also maintain (a beauty blog called My Little Space) but have only maintained my book blog for a couple of months now.
I had been stalking other book blogs for a very long time and decided that it was a subject that I was very passionate about and so decided to start my own book blog! None of my friends or my husband are very big readers so I think this is the perfect outlet for me to discuss what I love with other like-minded people.
2. Tell us one non-book-related thing that everyone reading your blog may not know about you.
I am a fully qualified Accountant but had a 'gap year (or two)' where I became a partly qualified Vet Nurse after losing interest in accounting. Financially, accounting is better for us at the moment while I can only work part-time while bub is young but Vet Nursing is something that will always be in my heart for when I can live my dream again. I am a huge animal lover and my pets are like my children!
3. What is your favorite feature on your blog (i.e. author interviews, memes, something specific to your blog)?
I love hosting author interviews. It amazes me that starting this blog has given me access to these 'elite' individuals and interviewing them and having their personal words appear on my site really gives me a high.
4. Where do you see your blog in five years?
Hopefully taking over the world! (Hahaha). No, really I'd just love to be doing exactly what I'm doing now. If I could only find a way to make this my new career I'd be a happy woman!
5. If you could eat dinner with any author or character, who would it be and why?
Stephen King. I have read almost every single one of his books and I also own almost all of them too. He's a classic author who I don't think anyone has really come close to topping yet.
