Hey everyone! Welcome to the first Blogger Spotlight. Please say a big hello to Amber from Casual Readers! I asked her some questions, and I'm going to share her answers so we can all get to know her a bit better. Make sure to go by her blog and leave a comment saying hello!
1. Tell us a little about yourself; nicknames, occupation, pets, family
I am a stay-at-home mom living in rural North Carolina with my husband, teen son, three dogs, two cats and more extended family than I care to count.
2. How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging long before the dawn of social media. However, I wouldn't necessarily consider myself a successful blogger. My current blog Casual Readers is less than a year old.
3. How did you decide on your blog name?
My blog spawned from the book club group I founded on Goodreads, Casual Readers. I couldn't find one group that met all of my reading needs, so created one of my own! I chose the name on a whim as it seemed straight to the point. Looking back, I probably should've put more thought into it. Personally, I read just about everything with no thought to genre restriction. However, I do prefer fantasy.
4. What is your favorite type of post?
My favorite posts to write are usually challenge related. They tend to be more personal in contrast to just another boring book blast. I love writing reviews, too. Keeping them non-spoilery is harder than you might think!
5. What 3 books would you recommend to everyone?
The three (recently read) books I would recommend to absolutely everyone are:
I would love to meet Rainbow Rowell! She seems so down-to-earth yet quirky. That's pretty much my style, in general.
7. What Hogwarts house would you be in? (Or Divergent faction)
Shocker: I have never read Harry Potter! I did take a quiz once though, and my results were Hufflepuff.
I haven't read Divergent yet either. Don't hate me. It is on my (very long) TBR list!
8. Favorite Quote?
My favorite quote of all time is: “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ― Oscar Wilde
