Today please give a warm welcome to one of my favourite bloggers Jack from The Book Stop! He has been blogging for less than a year but The Book Stop already has a dedicated following and his reviews are the best out there. Read on to find out his aim in life (spoiler: it includes macarons) and his absolute favourite YA book, amongst other things...
If the best snacks were here, there would be macarons. I'm underwhelmed. ;P
Anyway, let's get started *grabs pack of Doritos* So, I like Doritos and macarons. My goal in life is to eat a popcorn macaron. I live in Ireland, I recently joined and am addicted to Pinterest, and I desperately wish I knew what I wanted to do when I'm older. Oh, and I like to read sometimes too. My blog, The Book Stop, is almost one year old. It's basically a place filled with my thoughts on books, reviews and the like if you're into that sorta stuff. :P
Early 2013, I joined Goodreads as a way of motivating myself to read more. Seeing other people's reviews on GR inspired me and I started writing my own short reviews of books I'd read. In April, I then decided to take it a step further and start a book blog. I had no idea how big and welcoming the community was. I used to look at blogs like The Mile Long Bookshelf and never would of thought of speaking to, let alone becoming friends with the people who run such professional, popular blogs. I've just fallen in love with the blogging community. It truly is a fantastic thing.
^_- Don't even try, Amber. *takes packet of Doritos from pocket* I always carry a spare. ;)
Wow, my favourite book? That's a tough one. Recently I read How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff and have said it's my all time favourite YA. Yes, that's right Amber. MEG ROSOFF. :P
As for my favourite adult novel, I simply couldn't choose. I feel like I have a lot more to explore before I can officially crown one my 'favourite'.
Currently halfway through This Is The Life by Alex Shearer. Although, Not A Drop To Drink by Mindy McGinnis is resting right in front of me, just waiting to be savagely read!
Probably hiking through the Himalayas, or sky diving, or asking my butler to bring me gourmet Pringles while I count my millions. But you know, just a guess.
Write what you want. Don't try and fit into blogging trends, or try to copy other blogs. Make your blog stand out, but keep it real and try to communicate to your readers in a relatable way. Show off your personality. And maintain honesty in your words.
For fun, I like to hang glide on a Dorito.
But seriously, I got a camera for Christmas and I can't stop taking pictures. You will find the most random photos on my camera roll! I also really like eating, drawing, throwing stones across the road... ._.
I also love admiring my emoji stickers.
And stalking people on Pinterest. Watch out.
And I'm a twitter-addict too, obviously.
Turn everyone I don't like into a food of my choice so I could eat them. And enforce a new law that states all countries must have the moon emoji on their flag. I'm sure you'd agree.
You tell me, Amber. You tell me.
Lorde, obviously! Why'd you even include the other two, Amber? You must be obsessed with them.
I want it to be the most famous blog on the planet. Just kidding, just kidding. I'd like to get into a comfortable routine of posting with my blog, find ways to make it more unique, and develop my reviews and writing in general.
Thank you so much for having me on your blog, Amber! I loved answering these questions. See ya! *runs away with all the Doritos*
