I’m a little late signing up but this seemed like a really fun way to get to know some new book bloggers. I’m really excited to meet all of you! Welcome back to my usual followers and welcome to anyone new who is reading this. I’m glad you all stopped by!

For those who do not know what Love-A-Thon is, it is an event—a lovefest—that is dedicated to spreading positivity and love. It’s time dedicated to visiting other bloggers/Instagrammers/BookTubers, leaving a comment or two, making new friends and fostering positivity among the members of our amazing community.

Questionnaire Answers:

1. WHAT’S YOUR NAME?

I’m Chelsea. I have no nicknames or anything so that’s what you can call me. 🙂

2. WHERE IN THE WORLD ARE YOU BLOGGING FROM?

I’m from the Maritimes in Canada!

3. HOW DID YOU GET INTO BLOGGING IN THE FIRST PLACE?

I’m not sure I can remember. I think I originally started because I watched a lot of BookTubers and wanted to do the same sort of things. Only I’m not big on filming myself so I took to starting a blog instead. That was back in 2013 I believe.

4. HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR BLOG NAME?

I honestly have no idea. I can’t remember at all how I thought of it.

5. WHAT GENRE DO YOU READ AND REVIEW THE MOST ON YOUR BLOG?

Mostly young adult and mostly fantasy. Fantasy will always be my favourite and I never get tired of reading and reviewing it.

6. WHAT OTHER TYPES OF POSTS DO YOU DO ON YOUR BLOG, APART FROM REVIEWS?

I love writing discussion posts because it’s fun to get people talking about something book related. I also do Top Ten Tuesdays, TAGs, and other random posts. I just started a new feature where I review a book as well as its movie which is pretty fun.

7. BEST BLOGGING EXPERIENCE SO FAR?

I don’t think I have a best so far. I do love all the great people I’ve met from all around the world. I think that’s probably the coolest part about blogging.

8. FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE BLOGGING COMMUNITY?

Everyone of course!

18. PICK OUT EITHER A BOOK YOU WANT TURNED INTO A FILM/TV SHOW, OR A FILM/TV SHOW YOU WANT TURNED INTO A BOOK.

I want the Eragon series to be given a second chance. The movie they did was horrible but the books are so great! I really wish they’d try it again.

Basically the library from Beauty and the Beast. I love that old fashioned library look with walls of book shelves. That’s the dream!
