Here are my answers to Lacey's questions:
1. What is your favorite topic to write about in your blog?
I enjoy writing book reviews, but I like when I can take time to write posts based off of features, whether it be my own or ones from a different blog. I especially like the idea of Monday Musings, Top Ten Tuesday, and Waiting on Wednesday but I've only just started participating in Top Ten Tuesdays!
2. What is the best book you have read recently?
A Sudden Light by Garth Stein
3. What time of day is easiest for you to blog?
In the evening or later at night. I usually read and write in the morning.
4. What is your favorite social media site?
Other than Blogger, Instagram and Twitter. I have a soft spot for Instagram since that's where most of my bookish internet friends originated.
5. What motivates you to write your blog on a regular basis?
I love writing. I also love reading. When I put both together, I discovered the wonderful world of book blogging and decided I wanted to start my own blog. In doing so, I understood that there would be a commitment to writing for said blog but I don't mind because I love putting my thoughts to written word. Also, I enjoy reviewing and participating in other fun features/memes. I can't help but write for my blog regularly because it's my passion.
6. Who is your idol?
My grandparents because I grew up with them and they gave me the world. My mother because she brought me into this world and she works hard to provide for me. My stepdad because he is like my second father figure next to my grandfather. One of my high school English teachers, as he was the one to encourage me to pursue a career that involves writing. Veronica Roth because hello, she's a talented author who wrote my favorite books of ever. J.K. Rowling is a given. Lana Del Rey because she shys away from societal norms. Joseph Gordon-Levitt because he's an amazing actor with a heart of gold. The list goes on my friends.
7. What is/was your favorite subject in school?
English. It has been and always will be.
8. Why did you decide to start your blog?
What's better than combining reading and writing with the support of other book lovers and blog aficionados? Am I right?
9. Favorite time of year?
I used to answer this question with summer but I think I prefer fall and winter. I like fall because it's the start of when loose yet cute clothes are more acceptable as opposed to short shorts. Honestly, I'm saying winter as well because I can't wait to play in the snow and drink hot cocoa.
10. How do you overcome writers block?
I make myself sit down and write. There are times where it may be awful, but others where I write usable material. Time and time again, this is the best and most frustrating piece of advice I've ever received from teachers, fellow writers, family, and even good old Yahoo answers.
11. How much time do you spend on your blog?
Too much time or not enough time. I'm not quite sure which one. Most days I spend about an hour on my blog. Other days I spend maybe three hours total.
