I think I have the youngest blogger in the history of this series in da house today, I’d like to give a warm welcome the lovely Kelly to the blog! Don’t be mistaken though, she knows the ropes alright and I believe you and me can still learn a thing or two from her ;-).
Kelly’s wonderful blog is called Another Book In The Wall and it looks very pretty, you don’t notice at all that she’s an organized perfectionist haha (no offence Kelly, I’m jealous really!). She has a few bad reading habits, that we’ll all recognize as well (book hoarding, but anyone who isn’t one raise your hand). I totally love her Blogger Questions because they ask all the questions that I’ve been wanting to know: how much time you spend on blogging, how you request physical ARC’s, what unique visitors are on your blog. Whether you are new to blogging or not, they’re always interesting to read and I think my favorite blogposts after reviews. Anyway, hop on over to her blog but not before you read her answers to my questions below ;-).
Name: Kelly Costigan
Age: 17 🙂
Birthday: July 5
What did you study or do you study now / what is your current job? I don’t have a job at the moment, but am currently studying Dental Hygiene at my local community college.
Do you have any other hobbies? I absolutely love playing piano – I have been playing for around 5 years, and although I’m not the best, it’s a part of me. I’m also a huge fan of watching anime. I haven’t seen many series, but have been obsessed lately with My Hero Academia and Made in Abyss!
Your favourite color? I adore burgundy and any shade of blue!
Do you collect anything (besides books)? Mistakes. 🙂 Haha, just kidding. I’m not much of a collector, but I do love printing out and keeping photos.
What’s the name of the book that you’ve had the longest? Have you read it? I’m not sure what novel I have held the longest, but if I had to guess it would be one of my Junie B. Jones books. If so, yes! I have read every book in this series multiple times!
Have you ever regretted a book you purchased? A book that sounded so promising but you wished you’d have spent your money on another book after reading it? I can’t think of any book I’ve bought and wound up disliking, but I have purchased a few paperbacks, without realizing that I already owned the e-book! Hahaha.
Do you listen to audio books? Not typically, but I would be open to!
Do you have a favorite genre? I love YA fantasy and contemporary!
What is the book highest on your wishlist right now? King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo.
How is your library organized? I have it perfectly color coordinated, except for my top shelf which holds books on my tbr!
Do you read more ebooks or physical books? Definitely e-books!
Do you have a favorite book? The Book Thief by Markus Zusak!
What’s the cover in your collection that you’re most proud of? I truly love the cover for Renegades by Marissa Meyer.
Do you have any idea how many books you own? <100, >100, >200, >300 …? Physical copies I believe are a little over a 100, and I have around 200 ebooks! I’ve regretfully barely read half of these! Haha.
What’s the title of the last book you purchased? Save the Date by Morgan Matson.
What was your favorite author when you were a child? Barbara Parks – those Junie B. Jones novels were the definition of my childhood!
From which author do you have most books? Rick Riordan. I own the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series, plus Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods, and The Demi-god Files.
Are there books you’ve read 2 or 3 times? Yes! The Book Thief have read I believe three times, and I’ve reread the Lunar Chronicles
How many books are there on your Goodreads challenge this year and how many have you read already? I have 75 books on my challenge, and have miraculously read 55! I’m over half way!
