Saturday Spotlight - Fantasys Ink

Today I am spotlighting a teen blogged who loves and writes fantasy novels! Learn more about her below.

Name: Maria
Nickname and/or blog name: Fantasys Ink
Blog URL:

Tell me a bit about yourself:

I’m a teen who loves nothing more then reading, I probably spend most of my time either reading or writing. I’m currently writing a fantasy book. I hope one day I’ll become both a writer and a doctor.

When and why did you start your blog?

I followed many blogs and loved the idea of making my own, it looked like something fun and interesting.

What is your blog all about? Any cool features you want to share?

My blog is mostly about young adult books. I occasionally write about adult and children books that I can’t help but love. Right now I’m mostly doing reviews, previews of upcoming books, teaser Tuesdays, waiting on Wednesday, and in my mailbox. I hope to one day I’ll be able to do some author interviews. I will also be hosting my first contest very soon.

What are some of your favourite genres and/or books currently?

I love Fantasy, that’s my number one genre. But I also do enjoy paranormal romance, romance, and science fiction. I’m currently reading Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater and the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

How do you find out about the books you read?

I mostly look around sites and blogs for books that sound good and add them to my wishlist. I also sometimes go to a website called what should I read next. Were you type in a book you really like and it shows other similar books.

Any tips or advice for those starting or thinking about starting a blog?

Make a blog and promote it. Comment on other blogs and post things you would love to share with others. But most importantly have fun with it!

Thank you Maria for sharing more about your blog with us today! Please check out her blog and leave her some blogger love.

Are you a new blogger too? Or just getting back into the swing of blogging? Do you want to be featured on my blog? Shoot me an email at dragonzgoil (at) gmail (dot) com.


  1. Thanks for the spotlight!

    I wish you all the best Maria on both your novel and on becoming a doctor.

  2. Hello MAria, so nice to meet you. I love Maggie Steifvater too :D

  3. Wonderful spotlight - it was fun to learn more about Maria!

  4. I just tried to comment on Maria's blog but her word verification does not fully load so it wouldnt let me complete the comment. Hopefully she reads this here and can fix it. :)

  5. Thanks for sharing. Love these spotlights.

  6. Just checked out Fantasys Ink, it's a really cool blog. Thanks for the great spotlight.

  7. Great Spotlight. Fantasys Ink blog is pretty cool - I became a follower. I love how so many teens are reading these days!

  8. Sounds like my kind of blog since I love Fantasy and YA books.

  9. Thank you for sharing! It's good to have bloggers who 'specialize' YA sub-genres on their blogs. Nice interview!

    I used to like YA Fantasy books, but not anymore. Now, I focus on Young Adults Realistic and Contemporary Fiction. It's strange since most bloggers I've known they read a lot of YA Fantasy and Paranormal Romance book.



Leave some love!
