I was tagged by the wonderful Manon at Cafe Manon to do the book blogger insider tag. Thank you for tagging me! It was a lot of fun reading her responses, and even more fun answering the questions.

This seems like a neat tag! I hope y’all enjoy getting to know me and my process a little bit.
Where do you typically write your blog posts?
With such a crazy school schedule, I sort of write wherever it’s most convenient at the time. For the most part, I’ve wrote part of every post in my room, curled up in bed.
How long does it take you to write a book review?
It really just depends – there’s been times I was able to write the review in an hour or two, and one where it took me almost a week. Sometimes it’s just harder to put my experience, thoughts, and emotions into coherent words, rather than crazed ramblings.
When did you start your book blog?
I started my book blog this past February (2018). I had played around with the idea of starting a blog for a few months. Once I decided to start blogging, it took me a few weeks to figure out how to start and design my blog site.
What’s the worst thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
The worst thing is the guilt, if I don’t read a book fast enough, or post as often as I mean to.
What is the best thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
The best thing is the community. Everyone I’ve encountered so far is absolutely fantastic, both in their writing and personality. The book blogging community is so supportive, sweet, and overwhelmingly talented. It’s also an excellent resource for finding books to add to my TBR list.
What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?
It’s so hard to choose a single post, I’ve had fun (and a little frustration) writing all my posts. I think if I had to choose, it would be a toss up between my Shadowhunters Evolution post and my 25 Books to Read this Earth Day post.
What is your favorite type of blog post to write
My favorite type of blog post to write depends, but I think it would be book reviews. There’s something so liberating about sharing my opinions with others. I also like reflecting on my reading experiences, and having to formulate my thoughts and emotions into words.
When do you typically write?
I sometimes write in the afternoons but mostly in the evenings before I go to bed. There have been a few weekends where I wrote in the morning, but I feel like my creative juices flow better after several cups of coffee.
How do you write your book reviews? With a cup of coffee or tea? With Netflix? Cuddled up with your fur baby?
I typically write my book reviews in bed with a cup of tea and either Netflix, or Spotify playing in the background. Cuddles from my cat Homer are more than welcome (until she tries to lay down on my keyboard because I’m not paying attention to her).
When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing a book? Two weeks after finishing the book?
I like to write my book reviews right after finishing a book. I feel like it stays fresh in my mind and I’m still raw with emotion. I think if I waited a few weeks it would be more difficult to write the review. It also helps me to stay a tiny bit more organized and consistent with my reading and writing habits.
How often do you post?
I try to post at least once a week – my schedule lately has made it a little difficult and I think my average is more like once every other week at this point. With the summer around the corner I’m hoping to create a schedule and start posting more.
