Tell us a bit about yourself.
Hi! I’m Chloe and I’m an 18 year old blogger. I love to talk about books, read books, and take pictures of books! I hope to work in publishing and write my own book one day! I mainly read Young Adult books, but I’m trying to branch out more into Middle Grade and Adult. I also really love animals. I have two dogs and six cats and they often make an appearance on all of my accounts, haha.
How did you get into blogging?
I originally wanted to try out BookTube, but I found that I was incredibly awkward in front of the camera. Plus, I knew next to nothing about video editing or even how to upload videos to Youtube. I knew I wanted to talk about books aside from on Twitter and Instagram, so I thought I would give blogging a shot! It would allow me to do the same things I wanted to do on BookTube, but I would be able to edit more easily and I could write everything down instead of talking. It sounded like it would be a great fit for me!
Tell us about your favorite blog post.
I’m not sure! I don’t have one particular post I love more than the others or one I’m prouder of. I do love the reviews I wrote where I had a lot to say and I think I got all my thoughts across in a coherent way. Examples would be Sherwood, There’s Something About Sweetie, and Descendant Of The Crane.
What are you doing when you’re not blogging?
When I’m not blogging, I’m probably still talking about books haha. I read a lot and I’m pretty active in the bookish community on both Twitter and Instagram. I’m a high school student, so I’m also working on things for that! Photography is also a hobby of mine and most of my pictures revolve around books. And I’m probably petting my cats at any given time.
What has been your favorite read of 2019 so far?
Ah, this is hard! I’ve recently read and adored Kingsbane by Claire Legrand! It’s the sequel to Furyborn and I loved it so much.
Do you DNF books easily or try to power through them? A little bit of both?
It depends on the book really. I definitely believe that if I’m reading something I’m not enjoying, I should put it down and pick up a book I will enjoy. On the other side, I want to give the book a solid chance before I put it down, since it could get better. So, I’ll power through a little bit, but if I don’t like it after a while, I will put it down.
Where else can we find you?
