Today it’s the turn of Laura from Lozza’s Book Corner to be my Blogger in the Spotlight. You can find Laura’s blog here: Lozza’s Book Corner

Thanks for agreeing to be part of my Blogger in the Spotlight feature. First of all, would you tell me a little about yourself?

Thank you for having me ๐Ÿ™‚

Sure, I’m Laura… Daughter, sister, wife (almost!) auntie, friend and a massive book butterfly! I live on the south coast with my OH and love nothing more than reading or spending time with my nieces. Oh I’m also a carer for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s which I love!

What books/authors did you enjoy as a child?

There’s far too many to pick from as its all so varied. My early career was in childcare so classics like “We’re Going On A Bear Hunt” or “The Hungry Caterpillar” were popular, and I always remember visiting my nan and picking up her Mills&Boon books!

What made you want to start blogging?

My friend suggested it after asking me for recommendations of what to read, plus I was getting annoy with picking up books I’d already read so it seemed a great way to keep track and connect with other book buds!

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

Meeting new bloggers is great but I’ve found a new love of writing so reviews for a book is now the norm and part of the reading process for me. Oh that and ARCs.. I won’t lie, gotta love a free book, I just can’t keep track!

Tell me about your blog – sell yourself!

My blog has become my baby and it’s still in the growing process. I’ve a mixture of reviews, author spotlights/interviews and promo posts and about to start on guest posts too… But take a look for yourself, there’s room for everyone in my lil BookCorner ๐Ÿ˜‰

Whatโ€™s your favourite book youโ€™ve reviewed so far this year? Or favourite three if you really canโ€™t choose.

Ooh that’s a tough one. Being a book review and since having my blog I’ve discovered so many new authors and titles I wouldn’t have normally picked out… Big Little Lies by Liane Moriaty is definitely up there but I equally loved My Sisters Secret by Tracy Bucannan and The Sun In Her Eyes by Paige Toon.

What are you reading just now?

I’m in between books as I write this. I’ve just finished a debut novel from Amy Avanzino called Wake Up call which is about a woman losing the last 5 years of her life after she gets amnesia from an accident, and I’m about to start Rainy Day Sisters by Kate Hewitt.

Tell me about your reading habits: book or kindle, bed or bath, morning or evening?

Definitely book, you can’t beat that new paperback smell but currently it’s been a lot of kindle thanks to ARCs!

My favourite reading place is my swivel chair, especially if it’s rainy outside. I curl up in that with a big mug of tea and can easily lose a day.

And finally, if you could be a character in any book you have read, who would it be and why?

Another difficult, but good, question!! Having thought long and hard about this one I’m sticking with myself ๐Ÿ˜‰ “My Topsy Turvy Adventure” was bought for me when I was little by my mum and I’m the main character!!
