Hey everyone! We have a special guest today 🙂 May I introduce Alysha from My Heart Hearts Books!
What got you inspired to start a blog?
I actually started blogging because I was going stir crazy waiting for We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han. It was March 2011 and I wanted it, and even though it wasn’t that long until it was released, I didn’t care. So I researched online and Simon and Schuster used to have a this program where they sent newsletters to bloggers with access links to download e-galleys (think Netgalley and Edelwiess, but run by the people at S&S). So I created a blog, signed up, and got the book. It was the best thing that happened to me and then I realized that blogging was a great medium to get people hyped about reading and I could share my opinions with other bloggers.
What is your life like outside of blogging?
Well, right now it’s complete chaos. I’m in my senior year of college and it’s finals week. Crazy. But usually it’s not so chaotic. I’m still in school and trying to out who I want to be and what I want to do.
Any advice/ tips to those who would like to start a book blog?
Book(s) (include Author)?
Jenny Han’s Summer Series (The Summer I Turned Pretty, It’s Not Summer Without You, & We’ll Always Have Summer), The Mara Dyer Trilogy by Michelle Hodkin, How To Love by Katie Cotugno and Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen. I just love so many books.
Contemporary YA. It’s funny because I hadn’t realized it until recently and I calculated it and about 1/3 of the books that I’ve read this year were Contemporary YA.
