Welcome to my first ever Q&A here on my blog! I really enjoy doing these. It’s great to interact with you guys and let you get to know me better. I asked on Twitter and Instagram for your guys’ questions and now I’m going to answer them!
Stephanie Asks: What was the first book you remember reading?
Hmmmm this is a difficult one. I think the first proper full book I read on my own as a Jacqueline Wilson book. I cannot remember specifically which one, though. I had read other books while I was still learning too like Biff and Chip books.
Favourite Snack for Reading?
If I am in a certain mood I like to eat chocolate. I’m such a grazer, give me a big bag of crisps and i’ll have my hand at the bottom without even realising in a short while!

Jack Asks: Why did you start blogging?
I have been creating content online since 2014, from YouTube to Twitch streaming. I started blogging when I wanted to initially create a website for my Twitch brand and started writing blog posts about video games. This then made me want to write about other things too. Since then my book blog has become the centre of my creativity and its my main form of content creation. It became a direction for my life when I felt extremely lost and I’m so glad I started!

Olivia Asks: Worst Book you ever read?
Oh boy, I think it has to be The Beholder. So far at least. I have read very few books that I disliked as much as I did that book.
What do you do for work?
I graduated my degree in Philosophy last summer. I spent a while trying to figure out what I wanted to do next. In the meantime, I took on some casual work at my university halls as a Domestic Assistant through the summer. I was then promoted to Residential Support Administrator so I will be doing that on weekends while studying a Masters Degree in Publishing Media this September!
How Did you start reading?
I have been reading since a very young age. My mother always encouraged me to read as much as possible and was always buying me new books to indulge in. I stopped reading for pleasure when I got to secondary school age because school kind of took over. Last year I made it a goal to read more fiction in 2019 and I have enjoyed every second of it.

@ZK_Pepper Asks: What is the best non-fiction book you ever read?
For me it has to be Kant’s Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals. I absolutely love Kant’s moral philosophy. I also got my first A on a uni paper for the essay I wrote on this book, aha!
Leisha Asks: What are your favourite things about blogging?
I love that it gives me a creative outlet that allows me to exercise my written skills and love for writing. When I graduated I felt like my brain wasn’t being stimulated like it was before and I needed something to kind of sustain it. Blogging really helps with that. Moreover, I adore the people I have met through blogging, so many wonderful and supportive people!

Shivani Asks: What is your favourite book and why?
Oooooohh this is hard. So many books I love and adore but Three Dark Crowns holds that special place in my heart. Without reading that book I wouldn’t be here and I love and appreciate it so much for that. I wrote an entire post and why It’s my favourite too, you can find it here.
