Today it’s the turn of Vicky-Leigh Sayer to be my Blogger in the Spotlight. Vicky-Leigh blogs as The Welsh Librarian and you can find her blog here:
Thanks for agreeing to be part of my Blogger in the Spotlight feature. First of all, would you tell me a little about yourself?
I’m Vicky-Leigh, though most people call me Vic. I hate talking about myself so let’s get this done quickly! I work in HR for a global insurance company, am currently studying for a Masters Degree, suffer from an incurable chronic illness, love music, reading, writing (when I can) and rugby!
What books/authors did you enjoy as a child?
I grew up loving Roald Dahl, Judy Blume, Michelle Magorian, Dick King Smith, Francine Pascall- can you guess my age from this?! Ha.
What made you want to start blogging?
I suppose I’d always wanted an outlet to my thoughts after reading, when I stumbled upon the world of blogging something just clicked into place.
What do you enjoy most about blogging?
I love being able to connect with authors, publishers and other bloggers. Its really opened the literary world to me.
Tell me about your blog – sell yourself!
Haha I’m not sure I’ve ever been any good at selling myself?! But I like to think it has something for everyone. I always say my taste in books is like my taste in music; eclectic.
What’s your favourite book you’ve reviewed so far this year? Or favourite three if you really can’t choose.
If you go away- Adele Parks
I let you go – Claire Mackintosh
The bones of you – Debbie Howells
What are you reading just now?
All the light we cannot see – Anthony Durre
Re-Bound – Aga Lesiewicz
CXVI: secrets broken – Angie Smith
Tell me about your reading habits: book or kindle, bed or bath, morning or evening?
All of the above! I even have the kindle app on my phone so I can read on my lunch break.
How can people follow your blog or connect with you on social media?
And finally, if you could be a character in any book you have read, who would it be and why?
I would love to be Lydia from Spare Brides by Adele Parks. She goes through such a transformation in the novel, and I would love to have lived during that period of time.
