Today I am here to start the new year off with a bang (did you see what I did there?) and to introduce you all to a new Friday Feature here on my blog!
Every Friday, for as long as I have people to spotlight, I will be posting about different book lovers that can be found on the internet!
Welcome to the very first, Book Lover Spotlight!

What type of posts do you love reading? I love book recommendation posts, top ten lists
How long does it take for you to write and post a review? Depends on the book,it can take half an hour to one hour.
Where do you share your blog posts? Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest
What is your favourite thing about blogging? Just being able to share my thoughts on books with fellow bloggers and readers. Spreading word about books others may not have known about..
Does your instagram have a theme? Hmm..I guess I have a warm theme going on.
Do you just write reviews or do you do other posts too? I do both!
How do you find inspiration for your photos? Sometimes from the book, sometimes from Pinterest, Instagram too
How long does it take to create a photo and upload it? It can take 10 mins or half an hour to create; then there’s editing which can take 5 mins(I think) and I need to spend 15 mins(feels like forever) thinking of a caption. When all that is done, I click publish…of course, if insta is being glitchy, then the post might take hours to go up!
Where do you share your bookstagram posts? Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest. I also have an Instagram widget on my blog
What is your favourite thing about bookstagram? I think that it’s a brilliant space for book lovers to share their book photos and opinions. It’s also a great place to discover bookish businesses and vice-versa. Of course, bookstagram has also given a major advantage to the book publishing industry(that also comes with its negatives). .
