Today we welcome Simona Elena from Sky’s Book Corner to the blog…
Welcome to The Write Romantics’ blog. Please tell us a bit about yourself and Sky’s Book Corner?
My name is Simona Elena, I’m 26 and I’m from Switzerland. I am a primary school teacher and in my free time I enjoy blogging, reading, music, traveling and fashion. Sky’s Book Corner is mainly a book blog, full of reviews, Q&A and bookish guest post. I also write about lifestyle, traveling and music.
Do you consider books from all genres?
I mainly review romance/women’s fiction/chick-lit books. I love romantic stories and happy ends. I also read other genres like YA, NA, historical romance, contemporary and fantasy.
When did your love of reading start? And do you have an all-time favourite author?
It actually all started with J.K. Rowling. When I started reading the Harry Potter books I fell in love with reading, I actually hated it before. So she definitely is one of my faves. I kind of lost my love for reading for a while, but Paige Toon has brought me back to it, I also started blogging, because of her books. Aven Ellis and Holly Martin are fab as well, their stories are just amazing!!!
What author has most influenced you over the years? (could be an author whose books you read as a child / teenager)
Well, I have to go with the obvious answer here again: J.K. Rowling. I grew up with the Harry Potter books, I grew up with the characters and that was just awesome!
What do you like most about being a book blogger?
The time I get to spend with books 😉 The contact with other bloggers and authors is also fantastic, I have made some great friends through blogging and I’m forever grateful for that.
Do you think you’d ever write books yourself?
I’ve actually written some Harry Potter fanfictions before and also some little short stories. I have some ideas for books and I definitely plan on writing more in the future, especially when I have been teaching for a while, so that I can focus on it more.
What book would you most like to see on the shelves?
Oh go, that’s a really difficult question. But it would be great to see a book, where all my favourite characters meet. Some of the HP characters, my fave Paige Toon characters and also some of Aven Ellis’ ones. They could all meet in Florida or Vancouver or London, cause I just love these places.
Do you choose ebooks or paperbacks or a mixture?
It’s pretty much a mixture. I love reading both and an e-reader is really practical, but I will never loose my love for paperbacks. I try to change after every book, sometimes that’s easy, sometimes it isn’t ;).
And finally, what’s next for Sky’s Book Corner?
Oh, that’s another good question. Well, I definitely have a Christmas Special coming up and I will also post a range of lifestyle posts. Of course I still have a mixture of bookish posts coming up.
Thank you, Simona! I’m sure our followers will be keeping a look out for that Christmas Special too 🙂
