Where do you prefer to read?
Annike: I think I prefer to read at home in my bedroom, preferably my bed but I’m not really that fussy.
Zoe: I don’t really think I have a preferred place to read however I love reading on the beach or in the sun in summer
E-books or physical copies?
Zoe: I know this is different but I really like reading E-books when they are available because I find them easier to read although I still do like reading hard copy books when I can.
Annike: Like pretty much everyone in the blogging community except for Zoe (she’s crazy) I much prefer physical copies of books to ebooks because it makes me feel much more like I’m progressing through the story and I just love everything about a physical copy!
What is the latest book you’ve read?
Annike: The latest book I actually read was one called Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall, which I have to admit I didn’t really like very much.
Zoe: The last book I read was Breathing Underwater by Sophie Hardcastle which I really enjoyed.
Is there a particular season where you read more books?
Annike: Not any particular seasons I don’t think, but definitely during school holidays when I have more time I read more books.
Zoe: Similar to Annike, I don’t really have a particular season I read more in.
Are you part of the bookstagram community?
A and Z: No we are both not part of the bookstagram community, I don’t think either of us are very interested in photographing our books but I (Annike) do follow a couple of bookstagrams on Instagram myself.
How long have you been blogging?
A and Z: We have been blogging since January this year so for around 8 months.
What do you love about blogging?
Annike: I seriously just love having an outlet to write down all of my feelings and thoughts on books because I never had that before but the community is so wonderful and I love getting to talk to people I would have never known, commenting and getting more book recommendations!
Zoe: I love the community and being able to have people around who are also interested in books and sharing everyone’s reading experiences.
What is your favourite type of post?
Annike: Probably book reviews and being able to share what I like about books but I also really so enjoy tags and questions and stuff.
Zoe: I really like plain book reviews on books people have recently read as these give me a really good insight into a couple of books and give me ideas on books i might want to read.
What is your favourite genre?
Annike: I really like reading contemporary young adult novels but only if they are written well otherwise they are super cheesy and boring. I also used to love science fiction and still love that and realistic fiction.
Zoe: I used to really like mystery books however I don’t really have a favourite genre anymore as I like to read a variety of different books.
What is your favourite book this year?
Annike: Probably The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey or The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. Both so different but so good!
Zoe: I have read so many good books this year so it would have to be between the Monument 14 series by Emmy Laybourne, The Selection series by Kiera Cass and the Trial by Fire Series Josephine Angelini.
What are you planning to read this autumn/winter?
Annike: It’s actually Spring currently where we live and I am planning on reading a number of books. I’m trying to read the City of Bones book from the Mortal Instruments series but I’m having a bit of trouble getting into it and finding it pretty slow 😦
Zoe: I don’t actually have many books that I’m really looking forward to reading so I just have to wait and see if I can find any good books.
