Featured Blogger: Vivien from Reading in Wonderland

Today please welcome Vivien, who blogs at Reading in Wonderland.



What's the meaning behind the name of your book blog?

Before I created my blog, I talked to two of my friends. But, we couldn't agree on anything. So, I combined two of my favorite things: Alice in Wonderland+Reading+ Reading in Wonderland.
Unfortunately, that url was taken.

How long have you been blogging?

6-7ish months

Tell us a bit about your book blog. What makes it unique?

I make too many references to random things. Pop culture references, music references, books, fangirl, etc. I dish out my feelings with almost no filter. I use too many gifs to aid this process.

What genres do you write about most, and why?

I read mostly Fantasy and Contemporary books. I love Fantasy books because I really enjoy seeing an author's creativity. I love seeing how well they translate their ideas to words. But, after reading too many Fantasy novels. I NEED SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

Every blogger feels pressure at some point. What's something you feel pressured to do or not do on your blog? How do you deal with it?

I feel pressure to write AMAZING reviews that get featured into books daily. Unfortunately, I don't read that fast and I have to contribute to goodreads. So, I kinda made a really unorganized system.

What's one book you think everyone should read?

Stolen: A Letter to my Captor. ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK.

Writing in books: Yes or hell to the no?

IT'S A SIN! There's a reason why post-its and notepads were created....

What's your favorite place to read or blog?

I love reading on my couch, balancing on a leg of a chair, or on my bed. Unfortunately, my laptop is messed up so I have to use the desktop computer in my parents' room.

Is Amazon.com the evil empire? Discuss.

YES! It distributes weird smelling books... ok.... that happened once. I prefer getting books at my local book store. Amazon ruins book shopping. I love running around the bookstore looking for book and grabbing it once I find it.

Book shelfie time! Take a "shelfie" of your bookshelves and share it with us.

Eh...better not...I'm insecure with my face

What have you learned from other bloggers or your readers?

How to write better reviews.

Do you judge a book by its cover, or its lover?

I judge books by their covers. I mean, everyone does. You look at a cover before you read the synopsis.

One book you like that no one else seems to, or vice versa?

Any mainstream book that booktubers spoke about let me down...so much hype over such poorly/unintriguing books

To DNF or not to DNF?

DNF very bad books with no substance

What's one book that intimidates you?

Lolita

If you could go to any literary destination, where would you go?

Hogwarts...lol no. Probably into the Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout

How about non-book related hobbies? What do you do when you don't feel like reading?

I cook or yell at people. Food & Raging=Life

What's your favorite book to movie adaptation?

Least favorite: Percy Jackson
Most: ANYTHING Nicholas Sparks

What are 3 favorite posts or reviews you've read by other book bloggers?

Vivian Divine Is Dead by Khanh
Kill Me Softly (Beau Rivage, #1)  by Khanh
Shatter Me by Emily May
