Today I have with me a great new blogger who is really enthusiastic about books! :) Check her out below.
Nickname and/or blog name: Une Parole
Blog URL: http://uneparole.blogspot.com
Tell me a bit about yourself.
Hey, I'm Emidy! I obviously love to read and try to make time for it every day. Other than reading, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and family, drinking tea, watching good moves, and relaxing! I wish I were more interesting, but sadly I'm not.
When and why did you start your blog?
I started my blog around two months ago. Before I actually created Une Parole, I visited many other book blogs daily. One day it occurred to me that hey! I can make my own blog, too! From that point on, I've been enjoying every moment of my blogging adventure, and I've met some great people along the way.
I initially started Une Parole to keep track of the books I was reading - I never wanted to focus on reviewing or participating in memes. But those thoughts soon disappeared once I discovered how fun this could be!
What is your blog all about? Any cool features you want to share?
I try to mainly focus on book reviews, but I only get around to finishing a book a week. To fill the gaps, I participate in a few weekly memes and post my "Midway Checkup". This is when I post about halfway through my current novel and share my predictions, thoughts, and overall impressions so far.
What are some of your favorite genres and/or books currently?
I'd have to say that my all-time favourite genre in mystery, although I do read quite a lot of historical fiction, YA, and just fiction in general. There's nothing better than getting absorbed in a good, suspenseful book!
As for books, I adore Agatha Christie - I've probably read close to 30 of her novels. I also love Margaret Atwood and her book Alias Grace. I chose it for an english summative and have been interested in her as an author ever since.
How do you find out about the books you read?
I get the majority of my books from the library - all it takes it an interesting cover to draw me in! I occasionally treat myself to a brand new book from the store, but that's a rarity. If I get a recommendation from a friend or from fellow bloggers, I'll check out that book also.
Any tips or advice for those starting or thinking about starting a blog?
If you're debating whether or not to start a blog, I'd say go for it! There's nothing to lose, and so much to gain.
If you're a relatively new blogger (like me!) I don't have the advice that a more experienced blogger would have. What I will tell you is to try and get your blog noticed! Visit other blog and leave meaningful comments - this will introduce your blog to others and hopefully get you some followers. Other than that, try to post often but don't let it control your life. Blogging should be a fun hobby, not a chore.
Thank you Emidy for stopping by and chatting about your great blog!
