Hi Everyone! I hope you’re having a great weekend so far. I’m still not feeling great, but working on Alter Reach, regardless. Slow progress is better than no progress.
I’m doing the How I Read Tag, which I found here. As always, I tag anyone who would like to participate. Just make sure you let me know so I can read your answers. 🙂
1. How do you find out about new books to read?
Booktube, WordPress reviews, and GoodReads.
2. How did you get into reading?
I missed the Harry Potter train when I was younger (I read them later in life). I wasn’t much of a reader as a kid, though I did always want to write. I didn’t really start reading as much as I do now, until Twilight came around. Then when Hunger Games was released, I really started filling my bookshelf.
3. How has your taste in books changed as you’ve gotten older?
I think my love of reading has increased rather than my taste in books. I’ve always loved Fantasy and Sci-fi, and that hasn’t changed. I will branch out a bit more now that I’m older and read some Contemporary and other genres.
4. How often do you buy books?
I try not to go crazy, but when a book is released or I hear about a book I’m interested in, I tend to buy it.
5. How did you get into Book blogging?
I started this blog to promote myself as an author and create a platform, so when Alter Reach is published, I’ll have some place to start. I enjoy reviewing books, and various other topics, so a blog made sense. I’ve been thinking about a YouTube channel, but that isn’t a solid plan yet.
6. How do you react when you don’t like the end of a book?
Eh. It happens. If it’s a poorly written end, then I tend to avoid that author. If it’s just not how I wanted it to end, then I move on with my life.
7. How often have you taken a sneaky look at the back page of a book to see if it’s a happy ending?
I’ve honestly never done this. I like the suprise of an ending and would be less likely to actually read the book if I knew the ending. (Unless I’m re-reading.)
That’s all I have for you today, back to writing for me. What’s on the agenda for you this weekend? Let me know in the comments.
Just a little house keeping note – I changed my Twitter and Instagram handles to @jessica_rachow. Facebook stayed the same because @jessica_rachow wasn’t available. I did this because I am trying to make my online presence more consistant. When I first started writing Alter Reach, I wasn’t even sure I’d get to the editing stage, let alone consider publishing options. @jessicainspired was just a name that came to me because I was inspired to follow my dreams. Now that I am actually doing that, and I’m thinking about my brand, this change made sense to me. 🙂
