Book Humans Interviews: Musings of a (Book) Girl
Welcome to the Book Human Interviews! Every week I will be interviewing one person from our overarching book community: a book blogger, a booktuber, or, a bookstagrammer. The idea is to get to know people in each sector more and connect with each other. If you’d like to be interviewed, fill out this form and I will schedule you in!
Today, we are talking to Mari, the book blogger behind Musings of a (Book) Girl! Follow along as we learn more about one of our fellow Book Humans…
Q1: What drew you to join the community you chose in the previous questions?
I love to write, but not in a way that would ever make me a published author. Having a book blog lets me get my writing in and gush about all the books I love at the same time!
Q2: What do you like the most about said community?
The diversity! It’s completely possible to never spend a dime on blogging which makes it more accessible than some of the other forms of talking about books. I love that this allows people from all different backgrounds and cultures to talk about the books they enjoy.
Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?
Deposing Nathan by Zack Smedley – This book made me feel seen in a way I never have before. I struggled with so many of the things Nathan did and it helped me gain closure on a few things I still struggle with. I wish this story had been there when I was in high school but I 100% believe it will help teens today and I’m so grateful for it.
Lastly, here are three posts that I love from their blog:
