Blogger Guest Post – Brittany @ Book Ramblings

Hey everyone!
I know I said that these guest posts would be up on Thursday’s when I didn’t have a review to post, but I’m hoping to have a review up this week, and I couldn’t wait to get the first guest post up.

First up, we have Brittany, from Book Ramblings!


Tell us a bit about yourself.

Hey, my name is Brittany. I’m a final year English student and blog at Book Ramblings. I live, breathe and eat books. They’re coming out of my ears at this point. I’m a Ravenclaw, newbie audiobook lover and you can always find me cuddled in any comfy nook with a book (or Netflix) in one hand and a bar of chocolate in the other hand (neither last that long). 

Why did you decide to start a blog?

I’ve been blogging over at Book Ramblings for nearly a year now. I started the blog in an attempt to read more for fun outside of my course. I was an avid reader before Uni but became overwhelmed with required reading for my first two years. The blog has helped me stay connected to recent publications and other readers of contemporary and fantasy, rather than just classics.

What is your favourite thing about being a blogger?

Meeting other people. I’m not the best at introducing myself, but I’ve had some great conversations with other readers, especially on Twitter. I’m always up for a chat about anything, books or life. I’m also always up for more book recommendations – I can’t promise I’ll read them straight away, but they’re likely to be added to my ever-growing TBR list on Goodreads.

Who are some of your favourite authors?

Oh, I’m terrible at picking favourites, for anything! I’ve always loved Sarah J Maas; I’ve recently loved Brigid Kemmerer (I have yet to read one of her contemporaries but I want to); and I always did love Julie Kagawa fantasies!

Name one book that you think everyone should read in their lifetime, and explain why.

I thought a lot about this one. I think I’ll say Iraq+100. It’s a collection of short stories from Iraqi writers imagining what Iraq will look like 100 years after the British invasion. It’s political in the best way but beyond that, it holds some great fantasy stories.
