Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Holly and I’m a blogger, bookstagrammer, and law student with a love for books and a severe nut allergy!

How did you get into blogging?

I first started blogging back when I was 14 years old… 8 years ago?! I wanted a place to post book reviews, but I never imagined that I would become so involved in the bookish community (or that there even was such a thing!).

Tell us about your favorite post.

I had so much fun writing about my time studying abroad at Oxford, so probably that series. It was lovely hearing about everyone else’s traveling adventures in the comments as well.

What are you doing when you’re not blogging?

Probably homework! In my free time I love knitting, writing, hiking, tap dancing, and spending time with friends and family.

What kind of culture shock or reversal culture shock did you experience traveling between the US and UK?

For me, the culture shock coming back to the US was worse than the shock going to the UK. I loved so many things about my year at Oxford–going to pubs, being on my own schedule, studying only English lit, going to school in a city, traveling, etc.–that coming back was a real struggle! Fortunately I was also coming back to some great friends at my college here in the US, so I had plenty of support.

What Reading Rush challenge are you finding most difficult?

Definitely the book to movie challenge–I’m just so bad at committing to watching movies! And all of the movies that go with books I’m reading aren’t on Netflix… the STRUGGLE IS REAL.
