Ever wonder about the person behind the blog? I mentioned back in January (here) that I would be starting a Meet the Blogger series. This series will feature some of my favourite bloggers as we go behind the scenes and have them answer the questions!
Next up is Ronnie Turner
Why did you decide to join the world of book blogging?
Because of my huge love of books! Also, writing reviews and chatting to the book community on social media eases the load on my friends and family. Lol! I love talking about books. It’s also a lovely way for me to write as well. When I’m not writing my novels, I’m writing reviews!
What have been your favourite and least favourite parts of being a book blogger?
My favourite parts about blogging are, of course, reading so many wonderful books, writing the reviews and chatting to bloggers, writers, publicists – the book community is awesome – it’s been so much fun! Least favourite part is definitely blogger guilt! I feel like I need to be reading and reviewing quicker, sharing more blog posts on Twitter and posting more on my blog!
What have been your 3 favourite books to review since you started book blogging?
Great Question! Six Stories by Matt Wesolowski, Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land and Sealskin by Su Bristow! So hard to narrow it down because I’ve been lucky enough to receive lots of brilliant books since I started reviewing.
Have you always been a reader? If not, what got you into reading?
I’ve always been a reader! Loved books since a very early age. I read a lot of Enid Blyton, Agatha Christie and a lot of the classics – I cringe thinking back on it now but when I was young, after reading Pride and Prejudice, I actually went round curtseying to friends and family. *shudders*. Anyway, I’ve always loved books! Reading isn’t just a pastime for me, or a hobby. It‘s much more than that. I have SO many books! And I love each and everyone of them!
Now the impossible question…what are some of your favourite books?
That’s a toughie! Errr… to name a few: The Shining by Stephen King, A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson, The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters, Made in America by Bill Bryson, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Sealskin by Su Bristow, Insomnia by Stephen King (massive King fan)! That’s only a few of my favourites! There are LOTS more! (:
