Follow Friday (15)


Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

Lauren: I've hopped in and out of having various blogs on tumblr, the only one that stuck other than my own messy one was a book one. When I realised how much I loved it and wanted to expand it to be much easier to follow the reviews I was starting to post I then moved here and it continued to grow! I honestly didn't expect to love being here as much as I do, I've met so many amazing people through this blog and they've made the experience that more enjoyable! They've also helped me widen my taste of books because I used to be pretty much stuck as to what I wanted to read next as I had a fear of picking up authors I hadn't previously read or heard of. So thank you to each and everyone of you and to me I guess for sticking at it even when real life likes to butt in.
Nia has been super busy with real life so I'm going to take this moment to answer for her as I know how it all happened. She had her own vlog channel and when I perchance asked her friend to help me start up a book vlogging channel her friend suggested Nia so I got in contact with her and she agreed, shortly afterwards she expressed a want to book blog to - she actually set up her own blog - and I then asked her if she'd like to co-host Northern Plunder with me so she didn't have to go through all the usual tricky things we all face at the beginning and she happily accepted :D
Ah this is pretty much it and unfortunately I have been sooo busy but school finishes soon so it should get better. Many apologies for the lateness :)
