Hello friends, happy Wednesday! I hope your week got off to a nice start. Today is book tag day, and the lovely Reg @ She Latitude tagged me to talk about…my book blogging habits!
This is a topic I never get tired of – and I guess you probably noticed…so here goes for a couple rules and a fun game of Q&A.
Answer the questions below.

Tag at least 5 people.
1) Where do you typically write your blog posts?
I usually write all of my blog posts on the couch – while the tv is running on the background. Like right now, with 2 Broke Girls playing.
2) How long does it generally take you to write a book review?
That’s actually a great question I wouldn’t know how to answer, because I have no idea ahah. I’d say that writing the review, when I’m inspired, can take about fifteen minutes. If we’re counting formatting, editing and all the way up to scheduling the review…we’re more looking at an hour, an hour and a half haha.
3) When did you start your book blog?
I started over two years ago now, and writing this makes me feel so ooooooold. Also…Is it a good or a bad thing that I can’t remember just what the hell I was doing with my life before this?
4) What is the worst thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
Oh boy. So many different things come with this territory, so many drawbacks I never imagined. I’m going to make blogging sound like a chore right here, but it really isn’t. The worst thing has to be that blogging takes SO.MUCH.TIME.
5) What is the best thing about having a book blog in your opinion?
I don’t need to think about this twice: the best thing about blogging is the community. Finding my kind of people who love to talk about books just as much as I do, being able to fangirl without feeling like I’m some kind of crazy person.
6) What blog post have you had the most fun writing so far?
Hm, this is kind of a hard question to answer, I am never entirely satisfied with something I’ve written because I am too big of a perfectionnist to ever be. But I think some of the blog posts I’ve had the most fun to write were mostly discussion posts:
7) What is your favourite type of blog post to write?
I think it shows, but my favorite kind of blog posts to write are discussions, whether they are bookish or blogging-related. I’m still really surprised to see how much, by just pouring my heart out and ranting about my own blogging issues and sources of happiness, people seem to really relate to it and answer to it so well. They are my favorite and most successful posts just as well,…so I think I got the jackpot here.
8) When do you typically write?
I usually write on the weekends and in the mornings, it’s where I schedule and write most of my blog posts.
9) Do you review every book you read?
Noooooooooooo. When I first started, I thought I had to, and tried my best to do so. But I quickly realized that I read way more faster than I could write my reviews, and gave up the idea of reviewing every single thing I read. I always share a bit of my thoughts on Goodreads, and write reviews for the books I really want to talk about the most on the blog and the books I got lucky enough to receive as review copies.
10) How do you write your book reviews? With a cup of coffee or tea? With Netflix? Cuddled with your fur baby?
I write all of my reviews…well, I don’t have a particular routine for when I write reviews, but usually since it’s in the morning, I have my cup of tea and maybe a bit of tv on the background.
11) When do you write your book reviews? Right after finishing the book? Two weeks after finishing the book?
Right after finishing the book. Ha. HA. HA. This has never happened to me, oops. I tend to take ageeeeees before writing a review, mostly because I am procrastinating a lot, and I think maybe it’d be better if I wrote the review right away, but I can’t seem to do that.
12) How often do you post?
Now this is a question I would have answered differently two years ago, and it’s always great to see how much I’ve changed and my blogging ways changed since I started this. I used to post about 4 to 5 times a week, but since I’ve graduated, I changed my blogging routine to 3 times a week, because writing blog posts take so.much.time. But I love it.
I’d love for these lovely bloggers to take time to answer these fun questions:
