In an effort to support and promote book bloggers further in 2022, Pages Unbound is hosting a (very casual) Support Book Bloggers Challenge. The idea is simple: we will work together to read blog posts, share them, comment on them, and boost book bloggers in other ways. To learn more about the challenge and the 12 prompts involved, visit the original post here. (The above banner was created by Pages Unbound.) If you decide to join in on the fun, the social media hashtag to use is #BookBloggerSupport22.
The prompt for September is to write a guest post for a blog or feature a guest post on your own blog. Earlier this month I encouraged bloggers to reach out if they wanted to be featured on my blog. Thankfully my outreach didn’t fall into the internet void! All guest posts are presented as given to me; I have not edited any of the content save for the formatting.
For my third featured guest post, please meet Roshan at Roshan Reads! Keep reading to learn more about this fellow book blogger!
Meet the Book Blogger
What is your name (and pronouns, e.g., she/her), in what country are you based (if you feel comfortable sharing), and where can we find your blog? List any other social media you may have, if you like.
What genres do you typically read and/or avoid?
I read a lot of YA, especially mystery and fantasy, with some romance sprinkled in when I need a pick-me-up. I usually avoid self-help books because I’ve never found them particularly helpful, ironically.
What are some of your favorite books to recommend to others?
Some of my favourite books to recommend are My Mechanical Romance, None Shall Sleep, and House of Hollow.
What inspired you to start your book blog?
I was inspired to start book blogging because I wanted to talk about books and none of my friends read, so I needed to find a place to put all my thoughts. I was also inspired by people like Cindy (withcindy on YT) and Chai (proyearner on Twitter) and seeing how many people found new favourite books based on their recommendations.
Who are some of your favorite book bloggers?
What are some other hobbies you have in addition to reading?
Some of the hobbies I have outside reading are writing, art, and photography, which seem pretty standard within the bookish community. Unfortunately, they’ve all been taking a bit of a backseat to other life commitments, but I’m looking forward to picking them back up soon.
A free space to mention anything else you’d like the book blogging community to know about you.
I try and do too many things at once and end up doing none of them, so sometimes I stop blogging for a while so I can get my thoughts in order and plan everything out. I have a lot of different ideas for new blogs, so I’m considering September as a fresh start for my blog!
Thank you to A Literary Escape for letting me promote myself on your blog and Pages Unbound for coming up with the Support Book Bloggers Challenge as well!
Thank you, Roshan, for participating in this month’s Support Book Bloggers Challenge! Please feel free, of course, to check out her blog and social media handles.
