Meet a Fellow Bookworm! : Molly




Aah the joys of bookstagram, book twitter and book blogging. Since I started this journey a year ago, I've met SOOOO many amazing book lovers. And to be honest....I didn't even know book blogging was a thing! But now that my eyes have been opened, I've decided that occasionally, I will be interviewing other book bloggers to help introduce my readers to other great blogs! 



Today's bookworm is ...





What inspired you to create a book blog?

    * I somehow discovered bookstagram a few years ago entirely by accident. It was amazing to finally have a community of people who read the same things I did and watched the same things I did. I eventually decided to start a blog because I saw a few other bookstagrammers with one. I didn't know anything about blogging, but I wanted to give it a shot to be able to talk even MORE about the things I loved. I don't have too many IRL friends that read YA or binge watch the same things as me. It's nice to have that community!

What are the perks of having a book blog?

    * Having a place to fangirl over things and all the amazing people. I've met some of my closest friends through blogging, so that's always a perk. I also have discovered so many new authors and even bookish events! I go to Yallwest every year because of blogging and have had the chance to meet authors, other bloggers, and even discovered that ARCs existed.

Where do you find inspiration for blog posts?

    * Either from other bloggers or observation. A lot of bloggers write amazing content so it's easy to be inspired by their discussions. If not from other bloggers, from the things around me. I'll be watching a show, or out and about, and think of a post idea. I have a note in my phone where I write down my ideas while I'm out and then copy them into a notebook at home. Sometimes I have no inspiration at all and have to Google things or go on Pinterest to find something. Or I just accept that I have no inspiration and don't post anything for a few days >.<

Who is your favorite author(s)? 

    * I love Tolkien. He'll always have a special place in my life because he's my husband's favorite & he's the one who encouraged me to read LOTR in the first place. We even had a LOTR themed wedding! But if I had to choose authors who are more current & what I usually read (YA), I would say Leigh Bardugo and Marie Lu, hands down. I love them!

What is your favorite series?

    * Will this one really be a surprise? Lord of the Rings, The Grisha Trilogy, Six of Crows (duology), and The Young Elites.

If you were on a stranded island, what book would you take with you?
You could only take 1. 

    * Oh goodness, this is actually so hard! I think I would find a bound version of The Lord of the Rings all in one book so I can just reread the entire thing. I think that's cheating, though, because it's technically three books!

Ebooks or Print books? 

    * I like print books, but lately I've been leaning towards ebooks. First, because I'm running out of space on my shelves. Second, they can be super cheap. Third, I read them much faster! I have a hard time reading smaller fonts, or books that don't have larger line spacing, so ebooks are a huge help since you can adjust all of that to fit your preferences.

Who is your biggest inspiration growing up?

    * I wouldn't say I had any role models or inspirations growing up. I mean, I loved Hilary Duff, the Spice Girls, and Mary-Kate & Ashley (I was in the fan clubs) but they weren't my inspirations lol

What is your most embarrassing moment?

    * HA. I can't even answer this. My husband and I joke around and say I have a lot of "Molly Moments". Basically, I'm kind of spacey sometimes and will say stupid things or just, in general, be embarrassed of myself. I do it a lot, actually. So, I've embarrassed myself plenty of times.
If you want something blog related, I wouldn't say there is a "most embarrassing moment". There are, however, a few times that I just get embarrassed - like if someone points out a mistake in my posts, or I say something about a book that was totally wrong. I also find it embarrassing when people IRL talk about my blog - that's extremely awkward.


Name a book you DON’T like. 


    * Just one? Well, the first book I gave a 1 star to when I joined this community was "Shatter Me." I could not stand the writing, it just wasn't for me. I heard that it gets better, though, so I've always been tempted to continue - but I'm not sure! There are others, but that one is a "milestone" of sorts being the first negative review while blogging.

 What is your book blog goal?

      * I don't have a goal per say. I just want to have fun. I love talking to people about the things I love and that's all I want to keep doing. With that in mind, my goal would be that I continue the friendships I've made and make new ones. I hope that if I ever do quit book blogging that those friendships continue after that as well. It's incredibly important to me.


Special Thanks to Molly for joining us for this interview! Be sure to check out her blog and happy reading friends :)
