Featuring: Blodeuedd of Book girl of Mur-y-Castell

Today please welcome Blodeuedd, 


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

Sometimes I wish I had chosen something easier, but at least I am unique. Blodeuedd, the name I use, lived at Mur-y-Castell in Welsh tales.

How long have you been blogging?

I am going on 5 years now. I did blog personally before that though, so...10 years.

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

I, oh I do not know, I just got a style of my own. Not too long and like I am talking to a buddy. I also review a wide range of books and it's mostly reviews on my blog.

What genres do you write about most, and why?

I love many but I do think 3 are the most read on my blog. Fantasy because I adore it over everything else. Urban fantasy because it is so kick-ass, and historical romance because I love that it's light and fun (the rest of the space is occupied by historical fiction, fiction, contemporary romance and paranormal romance).

What's your earliest memory of reading?

Sitting at the library looking through books on a warm summer day and borrowing lots.

What was the first book you read over and over, or the book you've reread the most?

That would me Magician by Raymond E. Feist. Before I got overwhelmed by my TBR pile I reread it very summer.

Writing in books: Yes or hell to the no?

NO! If it's not a textbook for school.

What's your favorite place to read?

My comfy bed.

Do you have any reading accessories you can't do without?


Finish the sentence: My bookshelves are...

Over crowded.

My TBR pile is...


What's a book that's changed your life?

I can't say that any book changed my life but I can go with Magician by Feist, because that got me to start reading only English books.

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

I really can't say there is any book like that, maybe I know too many different kinds of readers.

To DNF or not to DNF?

Before no, now YES! I have too many books to read books that suck.

What's one book that intimidates you?

I would say Outlander, because there are so many of them so I go all, sighs, it would take so long.

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

A tough one because there is not really any destination like that...but if it can be one that is not real then anything in Middle Earth.

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

Then I watch tv or spend way too much time online.

What's your favorite book to movie adaptation?

Least favorite is any attempt at Dune by Frank Herbert. My favorite must be Lord of the Rings.

What are 3 of your must-read blogs?

Between dreams and reality
The geeky blogger's book blog

  1. One of the things I like about your blog is that the reviews are so laid back. It really is like you are just having a conversation with us! I also like your choice of Blodeuedd. I sometimes wish I picked a MORE unique name for my blog!

  2. Yes to Middle Earth!! I would love to get at least a peek into that world beyond the words and maps of Tolkien's work.

    I have not heard of Magician. I need to check it out!

    Thanks for stopping by and sharing your blog!!
