I started this feature here at ASR in order to know your fellow bloggers a little better! If you are interested in being featured please fill out the form.
How long have you been blogging? What made you want to start a book blog?
I started blogging on June 2nd 2012 – I loved reading other people’s blogs, and just asked myself – why not me? I read lots of books, and I used to write reviews on Goodreads, so having my own blog was the next logical step.
What do you do when you’re not blogging or reading?
I take care of my four children, and I have also gone back to study at the university – so I’m usually pretty busy :) I also love traveling.
What is your favorite part about blogging? Least favorite?
Sharing my love for books and reading with other bloggers, getting to know more bookish people, as most of my friends in real life aren’t really big on reading is my favorite. My least favorite is to try to make a schedule and stick to it :( I have so many schedules to keep track of, but I know that if I don’t keep at least a partial schedule for my blog, I’ll end up posting five reviews one week and only one the next…
Where did you come up with the name for your blog?
I thought I should try to be a little original, but to have something about books and reviews in the name, and since I feel that I’m not always very conventional – voilà! (un)Conventional Bookviews was born :)
Do you have any specific book bloggers that inspire you?
What do you look for in a blog when following? What are your pet peeves?
Someone who is original, who has a voice I like reading in. I don’t really have any pet-peeves, I follow blogs that are very different, and they all make me happy.
What’s your favorite book(s)?
Again, far too many to mention! I read stuff that’s all over the place – romance, science fiction, classics, paranormal, fantasy etc, and it would really be difficult to only choose one or two.
What is the biggest turn off for you when you’re reading a book?
What first draws you to a book to make you want to read it?
These days, I usually pick a book by one of the authors I really love. But sometimes, a blurb that sounds intriguing, with a different premise will be able to reel me in without much difficulty.
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Fun, loving, and (a little) crazy.
Name a random fact about yourself.
I love learning languages!
Do you have a job? If so, what do you do?
I used to be an accountant, with my degree, I hope to be a teacher.
What did you want to be when you were little? Has that changed?
Actually, I wanted to be a teacher, and now, finally, I’m on my way to becoming one :)
Cats or dogs?
Dolphins and koalas.
White, dark, or milk chocolate?
Coke or Pepsi?
Favorite TV show?
Purple – in all possible shades.
