Emma from Star Crossed Reviews #BloggerInTheSpotlight @starcrossed89


Well it’s been a while since I had a Blogger in the Spotlight feature to share with you but I have a few lined up for the next wee while. If you are a book blogger who fancies taking part, please email me on portobellobookblog@yahoo.co.uk and I’ll send you the questions.

Today I am featuring the lovely Emma who blogs at StarCrossedReviews. In the photo above she is with author Lindsey Kelk and Emma tells me she met her again in September during her ‘I Heart Forever’ tour. As you’ll find out from one of Emma’s answers she’s quite a fan of the series.

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

Hello!!! For those of you that don’t know my name is Emma and I love reading. You may have previously known me as Chicklit vs Fantasy. My favourite genres if you hadn’t already guessed are Chicklit and Fantasy, I also love the sub genre paranormal and I read a lot of YA fantasy. have recently got into crime books too. I’m 27 but still pretending I’m 23. I live with my boyfriend and our Frenchie Basil. I have 5 brothers and growing up being the only girl taught me a lot about the other sex and exactly how to get them to see things your way. I’m a chocoholic and a bit of foodie. I love to eat but only enjoy cooking when I have a lot of time. I’ve always been a girly girl who loves make up and nails but I’m not the best at either lol. I’ve been a book blogger for 3 years now and it’s hands down the best decision I ever made.

What books/authors did you enjoy as a child?

I read this series of books about puppies. I really wanted a dog when I was younger but my parents said no at the time. I remember there was a farm where this black  and white border collie lived and other dogs would visit the farm.  They had dog training sessions and I think they did dog boarding. Each book would focus on a different dog and their story. I can’t for the life of me remember its name but I had about 20 of them. My mum gave me a Winnie the Pooh book for my 8th birthday which I still have and treasure. I also loved Jacqueline Wilson books and Harry Potter when I got a little older.

What do you enjoy most about blogging?

I love the community and that feeling when someone says they will read a book based on your review. There’s nothing quite like it.

Tell me about your blog – sell yourself!

I am not very good at selling myself but my blog is full of reviews of wonderful books, Q&A’s with authors, a few guest posts and lots of book news for you.

What’s your favourite book you’ve reviewed in the past year? Or favourite three if you really can’t choose.

A Song for Tomorrow by [Peterson, Alice]

I have read so many good books but the stand out for me is A Song for Tomorrow by Alice Peterson. This book had a personal connection as 2 of my brothers have CF like the main character.

What are you reading just now? (November 2017)

Lucy's Book Club for the Lost and Found: A heartwarming feel good romance novel by [Davies, Emma]

I am reading Lucy’s Book club for the Lost and Found by Emma Davies. I’m only a little way in but I’m really enjoying it.  

If you were on Desert Island Discs, what one book would you take with you?

That is SO difficult. Erm probably one of the Harry Potter books.

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

Oh wow toughie. Ok erm I would be Angela Clarke from Lindsey Kelk’s I heart series. If you have read the books you will know that Angela is the coolest. She is very brave.  She also goes through some of the most unfortunate things but comes out stronger for them. I heart Angela.

I Heart London (I Heart Series, Book 5) by [Kelk, Lindsey]
