Here are my answers to Ellie-Mai’s questions!
Have you picked up any new skills or hobbies through 2020/2021?
Blogging is a major skill/hobby that I’ve picked up in 2020/2021! I started this blog in April last year, and I’ve learned so much about blogging since then. I’ve loved all of my blogging journey so far and I’ve got lots of future posts in my drafts folder which I can’t wait to share with everyone!
Is there a blog post that you’ve written that you’re particularly proud of or passionate about?
For this, I’m going to say my Save Our Theatres post from last year. I loved researching and writing this post, as I felt that I had put all my thoughts about theatres being shut into one place. Hopefully theatres will be able to safely reopen soon!
I am also proud of my Death Sets Sail review, as this brought my Murder Most Unladylike Challenge to a close, and it was also the end of the most incredible series. As I wrote this review immediately after finishing Death Sets Sail, all my thoughts were still fresh in my mind and it was lovely putting into words how much I love the series!
Have you had any 5 star reads in 2021 yet? If so, which ones?
For some reason, all 6 of my reads this year have been 5 stars! I think it’s because I’ve been mostly reading books that I’ve recieved for Christmas – so I knew that I’d love them. The books I’ve read so far this year are: Rebel by Marie Lu; Slated, Fractured and Shattered by Teri Terry; Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon and The Cousins by Karen M. McManus. However, my favourite of these 5 star reads is Everything Everything by Nicola Yoon!
What is your most anticipated read for 2021?
I’m really excited about finishing the remainder of my unread books on my bookshelf (I’m not buying anymore books until I’ve finished these 😂)! Out of the books on my shelf, I think that I’m the most excited about reading The Conference of the Birds, as I can’t wait to read about what happens next in Peculiardom, in preparation for the final book, which I’ll buy when it comes out in paperback! Then I’m going to tackle my Want-To-Read shelf on Goodreads (I think it has around 20 books on it, so that should keep me busy!). Out of the books that I want to read, I’m very excited about A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, especially with the final book in the series coming out later this year!
Is there a particular genre you want to start reading more of?
From reading Nicola Yoon’s books, I’ve really got into Contemporary/Romance, so I think that this is a genre that I’m going to explore this year! I think that I’ll start exploring this genre more through Nicola Yoon’s next book Instructions For Dancing and It Only Happens In The Movies by Holly Bourne!
Do you have any 2021 goals?
I’ve got my Goodreads challenge of 36 books this year that I’m hoping to exceed (which I’m currently on track to do, TOUCH WOOD! 😂)!
What is one thing you’ve learned about blogging that you didn’t know before?
Before I started this blog, I had no idea about all the types of posts I could do and about how many people there are in the blogging community!
Here are my questions:
- Why did you start blogging?
- What’s your favourite book?
- Have you read/are you reading any books in a foreign language?
- What’s your Hogwarts house?
- Paperback or hardback books?
- What are the longest and shortest books on your bookshelf?
- What book would you love to see as a TV series/film adaptation?
