Today is BBAW Interview Swap day. Please welcome Cialina from Muggle-Born to the blog. I am going to jump right in. Enjoy.
1. I love the Harry Potter theme running through your blog? Is Harry Potter the reason you started book blogging?
Harry Potter is actually not the reason I started book blogging, though it plays a big role in my life. I was an intern at Scholastic for a while and I really wanted to be more involved in the book community. I wanted a place to share what books I read, but also my experiences in the publishing industry. At the time, I just so happened to already own the domain Muggle-Born, and since it was bookish, I decided to use it as the home of what eventually came my book blog.
2. What kind of reader were you as a child?
When I first discovered chapter books, I devoured them. I loved the Junie B. Jones series and I couldn’t get enough of the books. As I got older, I became one of those kids that the librarians gossiped about because I was one of the few who’d stop by every week during the summer to borrow 10 books.
3. Where is your favorite place to read?
I don’t have a particular place to read, but I do love reading outside in general. I love reading in natural light. But I did learn my lesson earlier this year: don’t forget to put on sunblock.
4. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
There’s nothing like meeting another person, whether it be online or in real life, who shares the same passion for books. You feel an instant connection with someone who fan girls over the same characters, pairings, quotes, etc. Blogging has definitely led me to meet some people that I would not have otherwise met.
5. What is the best book you’ve read this year?
I read it way back in January, but it still has to be ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Stephanie Perkins. No other book has left me fan-girlying as hard.
I hope you enjoyed meeting Cialina. You can find my interview with her on Muggle-Born.
