Getting to Know You Better Tag

I have been tagged by Mia the Book Addict to answer Getting to Know You Better, and I am so excited! This is such a cute tag, and I love talking about blogging and book habits!

Rules:

  • Answer the questions down below.
  • Credit the creator of  the tag (Ink Girl and Words).
  • Nominate as many blogger as you want, it has to be 5+ though.

How long have you been blogging?

Since May this year – so about 3 months!

Do you enjoy doing tags?

I do! It’s such a nice way to get to know one another, find out more things we have in common with fellow bloggers and find out other people’s bookish habits.

Do you follow the blogs that follow you?

Most people!

Describe your blog in 5 words?

Passionate, random, friendly, cozy (?), opinionated

How many posts have you made on your blog? (Not counting this tag)

Around 55.

On a scale of 1-10 how much do you enjoy blogging?

Honestly, I am still pretty fresh in the blogging community, so for me it’s a 10. I love talking about books, getting book recommendations and spending time editing previous reviews, working on social media, reading other people’s posts… I could literally do this all day, every day. This will probably change with time, though!

Post some links to blogs you enjoy reading

Honestly I tend to click on posts without really checking who posted it… but some of my auto-like (like before even reading) blogs are: Diary of a BookfiendThe Introverted Book Nerd, Clues and Reviews, Darque Dreamer ReadsChelle’s Book Ramblings, Paper Fury

Writing or reading blog posts?

Both? I started this blog because I love writing & books & I talk too much about books, so eventually decided to create a blog where my thoughts could be shared and maybe find a person or two who read similar genres so I could get inspiration from. The blogs I found out because of it absolutely blew. My. Mind. So many creative posts, from honest and thoughtful discussions to hauls (I love those!), funny tags, reviews with such unique styles. I always look forward to sharing my posts and it gives me a bit of a butterflies-in-the-stomach feeling to post something and hope you guys enjoy the content. But finding out there’s people out there being as in love with reading as I am, and even more, was and is so awesome.

I am tagging some of the last blogs I started following recently:

A Taste for Books

Boston Book Reader

Linda’s Little Library

Phannie the Ginger Bookworm

City of Novels

Of course, if you don’t want to answer the tag, you absolutely don’t need to.

Fight Like a YA Girl Tag

I saw this tag at Moonshine’s corner and thought it so cool that I tagged myself. Do check her answers to this tag, they’re really interesting! Some characters will be repeated a few times in my answers, because I don’t read exclusively YA, which means I don’t read so much of it to make this list more varied, but I tried to put the same books in no more than 2 categories.

Kristi from YA and Wine has created this tag, and it’s really nice to see strong girls and women being represented in fiction (and non-fiction) more and more, and specially YA does SUCH a good job in providing varied, independent, strong characters. Congratulations to Kristi for her creativity and for putting on the spot these inspiring characters!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who tagged you.
  • Mention the creator Krysti at YA and Wine
  • Match at least one YA girl with each of the themes below.
  • Tag as many people as you like!

1.WARRIOR GIRLS:

Linda from The Warrior Heir. I know the story is told mainly from Jack’s point of view, but Linda was the first girl I have seen represented as a fighter, and I loved it!

The Hate U Give Snow White

The Book (like the movie) That Started It All
Favorite Debut Book From an Author

Quite a no-brainer, it has to be The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas. The writing is simple but gripping and intense. It’s as if every word is where it should be, and the story itself will make you laugh, keep you on your toes and will definitely break your heart. This is such a must-read! This book will surely make it to my favorites from this year, if not THE favorite. Continue reading
