I hope you have your coffee and are sitting comfortably, because Norrie over at Reading Under The Blankie tagged me with a new set of Q&As to answer. So if you’re ready, let’s dive in …
Where do you typically write your posts?
Usually in the bedroom but, I must add, not while in the bed, or during rompy pompy, okay? I have a small corner of the room with a desk.
How long does it generally take you to write a book review?
Anywhere between an hour and a couple of days.
When did you start your book blog?
I’ve been blogging—and online—for a long time, but it wasn’t till 2017 that I started this blog, using my own name, and concentrated on doing book reviews. I think my first post was a review of MR. CHURCHILL’S SECRETARY [2/10] on January 14, 2017.
What is the worse thing about having a book blog, in your opinion?
Eh, nothing … not really. In my opinion!
What is the best thing about having a book blog, in your opinion?
Being able to share my thoughts on a particular book with other people that, even if they don’t agree with my review, still comment. Also, meeting other book bloggers. And books … lots of books!
What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?
Fun? Hmm … That would have to be, 6 Sci-Fi Book Suggestions For People Who Don’t Like SF, which has had 89 hits so far!
What is your favourite type of blog post to write?
I love doing memes and have fun doing these kind of Q&As, and who doesn’t love a good list, right?
When do you typically write?
First thing in the morning, early, though occasionally I have been known to be awake enough, and written a post in the evening.
Do you review every book you read?
In the words of Norrie: ‘Aw hell, no!’ Life’s too short.
How do you write your book reviews: with a cup of coffee, Netflix, cuddled with a fur baby?
Usually with a drink at hand, mostly coffee (as it’s usually early in the morning), and definitely without distractions. And that’s a no to furry things, unless it’s stuffed and mounted, or a teddy bear—Hudson Bae, Mckenzie Moose and Matt Smith are little to no help, though!
When do you write your book reviews; right after finishing the book? Two weeks later?
Usually, within a day or two, at most, while the story is still fresh in my mind. There’s no point if it’s going to take longer, I obviously don’t want to write the review.
How often do you post?
Most weeks, Monday to Friday, but I have had the odd week where I might skip a day. And weekends are for family, friends and, of course, reading.
