Hi everyone, I’m Rachel and I live in London, which it turns out is the best place to live if you are a book blogger and keep being invited to book events!
You lucky thing. I live in the sticks, MILES away.
How long have you been blogging and what is the name of your blog?
I’ve been blogging since April 2015, and my blog is called Rachel’s Random Reads. This is partly because each week I have a random selection of books, and allow my followers to choose one of them for me to read, for the following week!
How do you fit all this reading into your life? (marriage/kids/job)
I have a very long commute into work each day on public transport, so get large amounts of reading done on the tube and buses, at least as long as I can stay awake. I’m not married, nor do I have kids, or anything resembling a life, so book blogging is providing me a great outlet to be creative, and on occasion social too.
LOL Who needs a life when there's fiction?
What keeps you blogging?
There are so many books out there, demanding everyone’s attention, some of which probably would never get much attention if it wasn’t for blogging. I love sharing my thoughts of all the great books that I am reading, and hope to one day, find the next big thing, and be able to say I discovered them on my blog!
That would be something, wouldn't it?
What is your favourite genre?
Although I know they are distinct genres, I generally would say Chick Lit / Romance / Women’s Fiction. So long as the book has elements of those, and is contemporary I’ll be more than happy to read it.
Are you an e-reader or a paperback girl?
E-reader all the way. Much prefer my kindle, since it’s portable, and a lot easier to hold. Being able to read one handed is so useful, when you are stuck on a crowded tube, especially when your other hand most of the time is needed to keep hold of your handbag.
Anyone that is sexy, and if they were single and available too, and could fall in love with me during filming I would be very happy.
That's the dream!
Hey, I can go free-range with the picture!
Do you have a favourite classic?
Not really a classics girl, I’m afraid. The only ones I think I read were at school because we were forced, so didn’t really take to them. Besides I prefer my books very contemporary (21st century preferred).
She's a thoroughly modern Milly!
What are you reading at the moment?
Just Haven’t Met You Yet by Cate Woods, which is a debut book. About half way though at the moment and really enjoying it.
Fab. It's been really fun having you on, Rachel. And if you want to read more from Rachel, you can find her on her Blog / Twitter / Instagram .
