Hi bookish friends, how are you? I know, usually on Thursdays I’m taking the day off, but I just found out about a great event, and I wanted to try and join, so…here I am, scheduling a post at the last minute, and hoping you’ll enjoy this!
Imagined by Beauty & The Bookshelf, Get up offa that slump: a blogging extravaganza, is a blogging challenge for those of you for feel a little on and off about blogging lately…and anyone who just wants to have some fun and participate in some creative, fun blog posts! This is definitely my case, so…how about we get started?
This post was supposed to be up on Wednesday, the 9th, but hm, I’m a bit late, and I apologize, but HERE I AM yay! It all starts with…an interview of myself, by…myself. I know, right. I’m going to keep things casual and fun, and I hope you’ll enjoy getting to know me a bit more!
What’s your name?
Marie, it’s actually a pretty common name in France, too many people are called like I am, and I don’t like it…or I do, because I blend in, I don’t know.
How old are you?
I’m 22. I thought high school was hard, but it’s not, life is, hahaha.
Where are you from?
I’m from France, born, raised and currently living and studying. It is pretty, come visit, guys!
What do you do for a living?
I scream about YA books. When my voice is sore, I’m compulsively searching for my next trip, making budgets and seeking hotel rooms and plane fares. When I have some free time, I try to get my masters’ degree.
Okay, and besides that, do you have any hobbies?
I EAT books, and I pet them occasionally. I schedule travels. I love food, and tea. I love tv shows (currently LOVING JANE THE VIRGIN, Baby Daddy, Young and Hungry, New Girl, being completely obsessed by Switched at Birth. Forever re-watching Friends) and a good day at home with the people I love.
Hard question: what is your favorite book?
Easy answer: John Green, Looking for Alaska, because that book means SO much to me. But if I had to choose in my recent reads, I’ll easily go with The Sky is Everywhere and I’ll Give You The Sun. ALL OF THE FEELINGS ARE HERE GUYS.
What’s your favorite genre?
YA contemporary. I know, I always scream about my contemporaries, but they are GOOD. Definitely trying to get into fantasy more, though!
Why “Drizzle & Hurricane Books”?
Besides the obvious, it’s mainly related to feelings the books are giving us. There are books that make you feel like you’re walking on a cloud, standing under heavy rain, or just drizzle. And then there are those books that makes you feel like you’re taken away by a hurricane. Those books. I love feelings, right?!
Seems like you like everything that just rips your heart out, don’t you?
I know. That’s crazy, right. I just love and hate emotions at the same time. I love stories that catches my heart and never ever let go. I’m definitely going to work on that on my WIP. RAW EMOTIONS, FEELINGS.
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
If I’m dreaming, I’ll say in London, working with books, probably in a publishing house, writing, too, living in one of those gorgeous London houses, and having a library at home, posters taped everywhere with quotes, and everyone I love close-by. If I’m not dreaming, well…I don’t want to think about it, it makes me anxious already.
