Today I have an interview with Kelsey from The Book Scout. She is one of my oldest blogging friends so you should definitely get to know her better!
What are you like outside of blogging?
Outside of blogging, I am very outgoing and love spending time with my friends. As a senior in high school, my schedule is very busy, but I also love just staying home and reading or watching TV.
What made you decide to start your blog?
I started my blog the summer before I started high school. None of my middle school friends liked reading and I wanted a place to share my thoughts on all of the books I was reading.
What is your best book blogging moment?
There have been so many amazing book blogging moments for me! I love that I have been able to attend BEA twice and the fact that I have connected with fellow readers around the world is another plus. I love meeting bloggers and authors in person!
To help some of the newer bloggers: what have you found to be the best way to network and get your blog out there?
Twitter is a great way to interact with and meet new bloggers. Also, just reaching out to other bloggers is a great way to spread the word about your blog and get involved with the blogging community. I think the best thing to do is just be yourself; reach out to as many people as you can, and interact on Goodreads, Twitter, etc.
What book turned you on to YA?
I remember discovering the YA section in my library and I picked up the first Princess Diaries book by Meg Cabot. I loved how relatable the character of Mia was and soon found myself working my way, rather quickly, through the rest of the section.
How many books do you own?
I probably own a few hundred. I have shelves all over my room, plus boxes full in my attic. I have no idea what I am going to do in college because I will miss having all my books around me!
What are some blogs you recommend reading?
