Why did you start a blog in the first place?
Before Reading Every Night I had three other blogs which all eventually fizzled out, and honestly for a while I was sure this one would go the same way, so I knew I wanted to start a blog again because I loved everything about having one. Also because I read really fast and my friends either couldn’t keep up or don’t enjoy the same books as I do I didn’t have anyone to talk to about what I’d just read.
That was really the main reason, needing someone to talk to and fangirl over all my favourite series.
What is your favourite book?
Oh I couldn’t choose just one. Instead I’m going to choose my top three which, if you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you’re probably well aware of.
The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon
Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
All of these are beyond amazing books. If you check out my reviews you’ll find them full of praise and full of me essentially mindlessly gushing over the stories, the characters, the world-building, etc. These are books I recommend over and over again, to pretty much everyone, so if there’s a story/series you haven’t picked up then do so as soon as you can.
What do you dislike the most?
When it comes to bookish pet peeves nothing annoys me more than when the cover design is changed in the middle of a series. It always ruins the look of the series on my bookshelves, and more often than not I need to spend even more on books to have a matching collection.
Outside of the bookish world it’s when people walk really slowly in front of me, and then stop in the middle of the path so I have to dodge around them so I don’t walk into them. I work in London and there are always people who do just that, and I’m always the one stuck behind them.
What is your favourite food item from the mall?
We don’t really have malls in England. The closest I have is Lakeside shopping centre which I guess is the UK equivalent of a mall, and the closest I’m ever going to get. Whenever I go there I always get some form of fast food, KFC or Pizza Hut, unhealthy yeah but kind of a guilty pleasure.
What is your favourite pastime?
Asides from reading, which is an obvious choice given the subject of my blog, I really enjoy baking. I haven’t baked anything in ages, blogging has a habit of taking up all my spare time, so it’s a pastime I really need to get back into but I always loved spending an afternoon cooking up some treats.
