I have joined up to my very first Love-a-Thon. These events have happened in previous years, but this will be my first.
To give you a quick overview of what it is. Love-a-Thon is being hosted by Alexa from http://www.alexalovesbooks.com
Alexa has organised the Book Blogger Love-a-Thon in hope that we can find new blogs to love and spread love to older and newer blogs and the blog owners! I am looking forward to finding lots of new blogs and bloggers to chat with. There should be time for commenting on blogs, spreading positivity amongst bloggers and our community. Alexa will be holding Twitter chats, mini challenges and giveaways.
The # to follow all the chat is #Loveathon.
So, the first part of #Loveathon is to get to know all the fellow bloggers who are taking part.
Here are some questions and answers about me, (some sent over from Alexa) so you can get to know me more. I am hoping that fellow #Loveathon bloggers will be reading this. If you are joining in, please leave me a comment to let me know who you are, your links and just to say hello.
1. What’s your name and where in the world are you blogging from?
I’m Amanda, and I live in Scotland, though I am originally from Wales.
2. How did you come up with your blog name?
I came up with chocolatepages after thinking carefully about what I will be blogging about and what are my loves. I had read lots about blogging before I started and I wanted to choose a name that I could use on all social media platforms, so I also have chocolatepages in Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. I love reading, baking and chocolate, so chocolatepages seemed just right.
3. What genre do you read and review most on your blog?
I mostly enjoy chick lit, but also like crime and mysteries. I have reviewed one YA fantasy so far, and I did enjoy it. The imagination of the author was amazing.
4. What other types of posts do you do?
Aside from book reviews, I also blog quite a lot about things that I have baked. My Hubby has a lot of food allergies, so I mostly bake gluten free things and things which are on a special FODMAP diet. That’s vey complicated and strict! I also do a few lifestyle posts. Bit of a mix really, but I would say its mainly a book blog.
5. Best blogging experiences so far?
The best parts of blogging is the community. I love to write about the things I love, but it wouldn’t be the same without my readers and the interaction that I get back from my blog and Twitter.
6. Fav thing about the blogging community?
I love all the interaction in the blogging community, everybody is so supportive. I feel like I have made some real friends via blogging. I also love the interaction with the authors, I like that they seem to appreciate my reviews.
7. Name some books you are excited about for 2015?
I have a few books that I’m looking forward to reading this year.
Blue Sun, Yellow Sky, by Jamie Hoang. (Just out).
Finding Audrey, by Sophie Kinsella (Due out June 2015).
8. Which book boy or girl would be your book BFF?
My book BFF would have to be Becky Brandon from Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series. She is so funny, I would be laughing all the time.
9. Pick out a book you want turned into a film/tv show? or a tv show/film you want turned into a book?
I really enjoyed watching Under The Dome and I know that this is based on the book written by Stephen King. So, I would like to read this. Sometimes, I’m not sure I would like books to be turned into films, because they are never as good. I will be interested in other people’s answers to this question.
So, there is some Book Blogger Love-a-Thon information about me. Please feel free to join in with #LoveAThon via your blog and / or Twitter. I would be very happy to chat with you and I know Alexa would too.
Finally thank you Alexa for organising this, and heres to a fantastic #LoveAThon weekend, and making lots of new blogger friends.
