Today I have a blogger interview for you today! Meet Sarah from Sarah's Reviews!
When and Why did you start book blogging?
Originally, I just wanted to teach myself how to write book reviews, but I soon decided that my calling in the book blogging community was content based reviews. This means I write short (normally two paragraph) reviews focused on profanity, violence, sexuality etc. I don't try to tell the readers what I think or if they should read the book, just give them a concise idea of what they'll encounter so that they can decide if it's something they want to read. Some people take the content warnings as a discouragement, other say it makes them want to read the books that much more. So yeah, that's why I blog! :-)
What have you found to be the hardest thing about book blogging?
Time. Writing reviews takes me anywhere from fifteen minutes to a day or two - if I'm really stumped on what to say - but reading the books can take anywhere from 1 to 40 hours before I can even begin writing the review. Finding enough time to read enough books that I can post regularly and still function as a mother and wife is a huge challenge.
How many books do you review/read a week?
Depending on the week anywhere from 0 to 6. Although I post them at a slower rate to ensure that my readers always have a new review coming when I get lazy, busy or sick.
If you were stranded on an island and could only have 3 books with you, what would they be?
I would definitely choose my Bible, and two survival books. :-)
If you could meet any author, dead or alive, who would it be?
Oh boy, about a half dozen come to mind, but I would have to say Jim Butcher. The way he weaves such fast paced, intricate plots is amazing.
