What Makes a Reader? Discussion (Collab Post)

 

51B1982D-48A6-417E-B468-838ADDD84BEB

Hi everyone!

Recently I’ve thought a bit about potential readers who don’t read and why people don’t read books as much as we readers would. I also wanted to think about a way that I could talk about this without simply writing a discussion post alone and so I’m delighted to welcome my friend Fionnuala to my blog for an interview!

Fionnuala was an avid reader (the reason we became friends was actually because I saw her with a Derek Landy book in our first year of secondary school!) in her childhood years but took quite a few years break from Continue reading “What Makes a Reader? Discussion (Collab Post)”

Interview with ‘Songs About a Girl’ author, Chris Russell

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and got lots of books! As this year is coming to an end I have a very special treat. An interview with a fantastic author whose books I discovered this year. This author is the talented Chris Russell, author of the addictive Songs About a Girl trilogy.

In case you’re wondering here is the Goodreads synopsis for book one:

Charlie Bloom never wanted to be ‘with the band’. She’s happiest out of the spotlight, behind her camera, unseen and unnoticed. But when she’s asked to take backstage photos for hot new boy band Fire&Lights, she can’t pass up the chance. Continue reading “Interview with ‘Songs About a Girl’ author, Chris Russell”

Interview with Historical Fiction Writer, Anne Blankman

If you have been reading my blog you’ll probably have seen the praise I have for the Prisoner of Night and Fog duology. If you haven’t, however, seen my reviews then don’t worry I’ll leave the links at the bottom of the post but make sure to stick around for the interview!

I can’t believe I have the absolute pleasure of welcoming Anne Blankman to my blog and I cannot wait to ask her some of the questions I’ve been wondering about. Anne Blankman has written three historical fiction novels for young adults such as the Prisoner duology and Traitor Angels.  Now, without any further ado lets start the interview with fabulous historical fiction author, Anne Blankman.  Continue reading “Interview with Historical Fiction Writer, Anne Blankman”

Interview with Debut Author, Carlie Sorosiak

I was so so lucky to receive an ARC of the wonderful If Birds Fly Back by Carlie Sorosiak thanks to My Kinda Book! And now I’ve doubled my luck because I have had the privilege of interviewing the lovely, Carlie Sorosiak who has been kind enough to answer some questions for me to share!

So for anyone who doesn’t know what If Birds Fly Back is all about here’s the Goodreads synopsis:

 Linny has been fascinated by disappearances, ever since her sister Grace ran away in the middle of the night without saying goodbye.

Sebastian can tell you how many galaxies there are, and knows how much plutonium weighs. But the one thing he can’t figure out is the identity of his birth father.

They’ve never met, but Linny and Sebastian have one thing in common: an obsession with famous novelist and filmmaker Alvaro Herrera, who went missing three years ago and has just reappeared. As they learn more about the mystery of Alvaro, Linny and Sebastian uncover the answers they’ve been searching for.
