I found this tag through Shan from Booksnadventure so go check out her post! I’ve been looking for some tags to do since I started down this path of book blogging and this seemed to be a good place to start!
Why did you start this blog?
Well this specific blog I started after I went self hosted and I didn’t like it so I came back to wordpress but I couldn’t use my original wolfishdelight handle so I created Justwolfishdelight. I had some direction for a while but from around 2019 I sort of fell off the wagon with blogging and was a bit aimless for a while. So that’s where I decided to turn to book blogging to give myself a bit more of a direction to go in and it seems to be going well so far.
What are the fun and unique things you can bring to book blogging?
I feel as a Tamil girl, who is bi and was born and raised in the UK, I have some unique perspectives and even expectations for books. But also I have loved reading ever since I could read so I guess I also bring my love and passion for reading and the bookish world too!
What are you most excited for about this new blog?
Honestly, I’m excited to be excited about blogging again! When I posted my May TBR earlier this month, I haven’t felt excitement like that about my blog in a long, long time! And I’ve been blogging across various blogs for 8 years.
Why do you love reading?
I love reading because I feel like it opens my mind to new ideas and possibilities. Plus it makes me feel things!! I love it when authors make me love their characters like they’re my own friends, when I’m left still thinking about them long after I’ve finished reading the books. Looking at the inner circle of the Night court right now.
What book/series got you into reading?
The books I remember reading when I was little were the Jacqueline Wilson books and the Beast Quest books. And I thoroughly enjoyed them, I think I read every single J.W book until the second Hetty Feather book?
What questions would you ask your favourite authors?
I don’t know actually, my favourite author is Sarah J Maas at the moment. I think I’d wanna ask her how she creates such beautiful worlds!!
What challenges do you think starting a blog will be the hardest to overcome?
Honestly as always for me, it’s just keeping on top of it and keeping up with regular blogging. Because I usually run out of ideas and then struggle to get back into it, but I feel like with TBRs, monthly wrap ups and such like, I can stay on top of it. Part of why I wanted to do book blogging was that there is a certain structure to it that I appreciate.
When did you start reading?
I think I properly started reading for fun when I was about 6 because every summer our local library hosted a summer reading challenge which I took part in from the age of 6 to about 14? Of course once I got the taste for it I would go to the library pretty regularly well into my teens and then I started buying my own books instead of asking my parents to buy them for me.
Where do you read?
When I was in school I would read during tutor time and some breaks/lunches. Then I slowly stopped reading as exam stress mounted up and I’ve only recently started getting back into reading new books. Now I mostly read in bed, quarantine and all. But even without quarantine I probably would only really read in bed, maybe between lectures too?
What kind of books do you like to read?
I love fantasy for the most part, anything by Sarah J Maas is a firm favourite. I do love a good romance but including vampires, fae and all manner of other supernatural elements just makes it even better. There was a time where I read a lot of crime thrillers but they started to creep me out a little but now that I’m literally doing forensic science at uni, I may get back into it.
That just about sums up my first bookish tag! I don’t really know many people in the bookish tag to tag people so if you wanna do it then go for it!!
