Today I’m interviewing Becca at Becca’s Book Bug!
Hi Becca! Thank you for wanting to do an interview. Tell me a bit about yourself first.
Ok, I’m Beckie, proper name Rebecca, but I get called every variation, Becca, Bec etc. I love Becca n Beckie so I knew I’d use these in the blog world. I’m 27, I live in England with my partner n two kiddies- who are 8 n 4. I am a qualified midwife but currently am taking a career break due to longstanding health problems that affect my day to day life. I am a chocoholic, shopaholic and addicted to caffeine!
What made you want to start a book blog?
When I started my career break, I was bored a lot in the day n I got into etching YouTube videos, through that I stumbled upon the book community on there and have being hooked ever since. From that I realized that people had book blogs and I was amazed. I love to read and I thought well I’ll start one so I can have a record of what I read and what I think. I have a terrible memory of recalling a book and what I thought ages after. So it went from there.
And how long has it been up and running?
I only started my blog April/May time this yr.
You’ve done well for only just starting it! Do you have any favourite books?
Harry potter series! Hourglass, timepiece, pushing the limit! Saving June, the midwife’s confession- generally Diane Chamberlain books n Jodie Picoult’s, oh and the Shopaholic series from Sophie Kinsella is a favourite from being a teenager. I am getting into some new genres now dystopian etc.
What are your goals or things you want to accomplish with your blog in the next year?
I want to get into some more genres, also to read a lot of the popular books that the majority of ppl have read- the hunger games series, uglies series, twilight-yes I know ppl’s thoughts on this. I would love to host a giveaway, maybe be post of a blog tour. Most of all, I still want to be doing this next year.
Aside from reading, what else do you like to do in your spare time?
Be a mum, lol, don’t get that much spare time, but when I do I enjoy; watching YouTube videos of ppl I subscribe too, Pinterest!, watch films, sleep! Shop! Do puzzles- I love logic, hanjie/picross. Family treeing. Sleep! baking! Have date nights with my partner. I know I’m boring haha xx
You are not boring my dear! Although I thought you were younger than you are, so there’s a compliment! Thank you again for being part of my blog today!
