When did you start blogging?
We started about two years ago (2009). And it’s been a FUN two years!
What made you start blogging?
The same reason as other bloggers, to share our love of the written word!! Seriously, we read a couple of books that really blew us away and we felt compelled to talk about them, as well we wanted to find other books to feed our new obsession.
What was the first book you reviewed for your blog and what was your reaction to it?
Graceling by Kristin Cashore. Looking back at that review is pretty scary, but our reaction was pretty clear. One of us loved it while the other thought, meh.
When was the first time you realised you were a Book Blogger?
Our first comment!! We love comments.
When did you start podcasting? And what was the first book you did?
We started podcasting as soon as the site went live, and our first podcast was Graceling by Kristin Cashore. We’re too scared to go back and listen to it, lol.
How much of your time a week do you spend blogging & podcasting?
We spend a lot of time blogging, maybe 15 hours a week or more. As for podcasting, about 1-2 hours per week.
Has your taste in book genres changed since starting the blog and the podcast?
Oh, heavens yes. When we first started it was all about the vampires. Thankfully, we are more diversified now.
What book has got you very excited or made you cry?
We all loved, loved The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen. As for a book that made us cry, If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Foreman.
Have you read any book that you disliked so much, you threw it across the room?
In the physical sense, no.
What advice would you give to anyone who wants to take part or what to set up a book blog?
Have fun, be nice and read what you want to!!
Now, to ask five fun quick-fire questions. What song are you listening to right now?
We’re really down with The Cave by Mumford & Sons and mostly anything on Radio Disney.
MySpace, Facebook or Twitter?
Hardback, paperbacks or eBooks?
Letters, phone, texting or emailing?
Not gonna lie, letters are fun to get in the mail, but in reality emailing is our thing.
Zombies or unicorns?
No vampires or werewolves here. But seeing as this is you guys...haha, can we plea the Fifth?
