Feature and Follow Friday: Featured Blogger!

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

And guess what... I was lucky enough to be chosen to feature this week! So welcome one and welcome all, take a look around!

This week's question: post a photo of your favourite coffee mug.

I haven't really got many mugs that mean much to me, but my mum got me this one for my twenty first birthday. It sits by my bed so it's the one that I always use when I'm reading. The poem on the side reads "A mug to keep for years to come, to remind me of when I was Twenty One." So cute!



Interview Questions:

When did you start blogging?
I started blogging last December. I graduated from university with an English Lit and History degree last summer, and after leaving I found it odd no longer writing about the books that I was reading. I found myself keeping notes, which gradually turned into reviews, and the idea of starting a book blog just popped into my head one day. Little did I know that there was this whole crazy world of fellow book bloggers just waiting to be discovered!

What is your favorite part of book blogging? 
Meeting like-minded people. Not many of my friends and family read, and so blogging is the perfect way to talk about the books that I love.

What type of books do you mainly blog about? 
Mainly historical/contemporary romance and YA/NA fiction, but I'm happy to read and blog about pretty much anything!

What is your favorite book(s)? 
This is an impossible question! I love Elizabeth Chadwick's historical fiction, and Anthony Horowitz is another favourite author. I love classic authors like F. Scott Fitzgerald and the Bronté sisters too.   

What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging? 
It's got to be the free books right? The postman must laugh to himself at how excited I get when he brings a parcel for me! Knowing that you're getting to read them before everybody else is an added bonus too.

Once again welcome to my blog, and thanks to Alison and Parajunkee for featuring me!

  5. I love that you have a mug from your mom. How special is that? I have shot glasses that are special to me like that but not mugs.
