Questions for me:
What is a quirky habit that you have?
I’m pretty sure this is a habit but I’ve kind of grown up with it so who knows… we’ll give it a go! I actually bounce when I walk. I cannot walk normally at all. My dad calls me Tigger ’cause I bounce basically! I’ve also always walked on my tiptoes whenever I don’t have shoes on. I think these are related.
What is something that you cannot live without?
Definitely my kindle. I would say sentimental pieces and stuff but my kindle is my lifeline. I don’t own a phone and it has all of my books on it so I wouldn’t be able to do this if I didn’t have that!
Favourite food or dessert?
Salted caramel anything!
What is your favourite book?
Wow, as a reviewer this is not an easy question. I will have to name a few: “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee, “Jurassic Park” by Michael Crichton, “Furiously Happy” by Jenny Lawson, and “Dark Matter” by Michelle Paver. They all span different genres too!
What kind of music do you listen to?
Mainly broadway and Disney but if I am going for genres then there would be indie and 70’s/80’s hits.
Why did you start your blog?
I have always been a bookworm for as long as I can remember. I have also always loved reviewing things. I used to run a reviewing everything blog but college took over. This year, I decided that I was stuck in a rut in life and in reading. I was reading the same genre over and over again so I set a challenge of reading 50 books I would not normally read. I have read up to 41 (that’s with work and socialising) and have found so many gems. I have found new loves and new hates. I found myself within my love of different books and I wanted a way to talk about and write about these books! That’s how ‘foxtrevert’ came about!
Do you use any social media platforms for your blog?
If you have a blog/site focused on certain topics, but are suddenly inspired to write a post on something different, do you do it?
No, I want my blog to focus on books and literature.
If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think” – A.A Milne, Winnie the Pooh.
Any advice for other bloggers?
No matter how small your blog or how hard it is to get recognised, keep going. Call in your friends, recruit family to share your page, share and share and share but no matter what, keep writing what YOU want to write and don’t change your page for others.
