Book Blogger Q&A: ComaCalm’s Corner

ComaCalm from ComaCalm’s Corner kindly agreed to take part in our Book Blogger Q&A, making her the 51st contributor to the series.

Here are her responses:

ComaCalm's CornerHow long have you been a blogger?

Since October last year… erm. *calculates slowly* 9 months!

Approximately, how many books do you read every year?

Well, I usually read around 20 because I get bored easily. However I’ve already read over 100 this year. I’m aiming for 200+.

What were your favourite books as a child?

I loved The Devil and His Boy by Anthony Horowitz. I read it over and over and enjoyed reading about how some of the characters were real people every time! Another favourite was a collection of The Wishing Tree stories by Enid Blyton. I read it so many times the cover had to be taped back on!

What are you reading at the moment?

Tower of Parlen Min by Matt Xell, White Cat by Holly Black, Forbidden (Demon Trapper’s 1) by Jana Oliver and Matched by Ally Condie – and no, I’m not getting the stories muddled!

If you had to pick one, what’s the best book you’ve read in the last twelve months?

Ooh that’s a tough one. I’d have to say Wood Angel by Erin Bow. It made me cry. :'(

Who are your three favourite authors?

Tess Oliver, Amy Holder and James Dashner.

Which book has had the greatest impact on your life?

The Secret by Rhona Byrne. Get past the cheesy rubbish and there’s some solid advice there.

Which books are you most eagerly anticipating?

Lola and the Boy Next Door by Stephanie Perkins, which is an obvious one. However I’d happily never read it if I could get my hands on The Death Cure by James Dashner. The wait is killing me!

Which book character is most like you?

There’s a cat in Wishing For Tomorrow by Hilary McKay, and it’s just like me. I’ve been told I’m rather cat like.

If you had to invite some book characters round for dinner, who would you choose and why?

Oh my. I’d definitely invite Riley Blackthorne from The Demon Trappers, she’s pretty awesome. I’d give her a couple of pairs of my jeans. Valek from Poison Study, because he sounds sexy. And… Bella Swan. So I could teach her about the dangers of stalkers.

What advice would you give to new bloggers?

It’s not as easy as it looks. It will take over your life and you have to be prepared to commit to it if you want to get anywhere. ARCs aren’t going to fall into your lap, it’s takes a lot of hard work and months of blogging.

Which other book blogs do you recommend?

Cait from The Cait Files and Raimy from Readaraptor, who are both amazing people and review the same genre as me (YA). They’ve definitely kept me plugging away!
