Another Saturday, another interview with an awesome British book blogger! Today it is my pleasure to introduce you to Kerrie from Read and Repeat! Kerrie is absolutely lovely, I love her blog and chatting to her online and was lucky enough to meet her at a recent book event!
If you don't already follow Kerrie, I urge you to do so now...
First, can you tell me something about yourself and your blog?
Hi! I'm Kerrie and my blog is Read and Repeat I started the blog just over a year ago and I love it. I mainly read Contemporary YA but will give most YA books a try.
How did you begin being a book blogger?
A few years ago I started a book blog but at the time I was planning my wedding and just didn't have the time to keep it going then at the start of last year I joined a YA book club in my local town which was run by Sammee from I Want To Read That. After a few weeks I realised how great YA books and the community was and decided to start a blog again and I am so glad I did!
When you're not reading or blogging, what do you do with yourself?
Mainly I work (I work for a private aviation company as a travel coordinator - so I book flights, accommodation and anything else travel related for air crew) Its a really interesting job but it also takes up a lot of time. I also spend time with my husband Neil either playing video games together or watching TV shows (we LOVE Netflix!)
My review of Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry. Pushing the Limits was such an amazing book and because of that I really wanted to do the book justice, I ended up spending hours antagonising over every sentence.
What has been the best experience of being a book blogger so far?
It would have to be attending the Queen of Teen after party at Guildford Waterstones last year, I got to spend the evening with Maureen Johnston, James Dawson and other YA authors it was so much fun and something I wouldn't of even known about if I wasn't blogging.
