Book Humans Interviews: Pretty Purple Polka Dots

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 Aoife, the book blogger behind Pretty Purple Polka Dots! 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?
None of my friends read, so I wanted somewhere to talk books.

Q2: What do you like the most about said community?
How supportive they are to new bloggers and international bloggers

Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?
The Book Thief – one of the most beautifully written books there is.

Lastly, here are three posts that I love from their blog:

Book Humans Interviews: Hit The Books

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 Aayushi, the booktuber behind Hit The Books! 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’ve always loved books, and knew I wanted to talk about them somewhere, so once I found the booktube community I convinced myself that talking about books to a camera would be easier than writing about them. That’s obviously not as easy as my naïve little self-thought, but the ability to be within a community of people who also just love gushing over books is amazing. It’s still just as much fun as I expected it to be!

Q2: What do you like the most about said community?
Making friends, at least from what I’ve found, is easy. Most other small booktubers are friendly, and regardless of what your tastes are or what kind of content you produce, it’s easy to find someone willing to hype you up or help you out. Also, everyone making booktube content is doing it out of the same need to share about books, and it’s so much fun to be a part of something like that. I love watching book rec videos because the amount of love people have for books they recommend is so enjoyable to watch onscreen!

Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?
The Thief, by Megan Whalen Turner. It’s the first of a series of YA high fantasy novels that honestly have something for everyone. There’s spectacular worldbuilding, endearing and well fleshed out characters, a well-written plot with one of the coolest twists in fantasy ever, and a masterclass in writing unreliable narrators. This series is my favorite, and I really just want everyone to read it and love it as much as I do.

Lastly, here are three videos that I love from their Youtube:

  1. 5 CLASSICS WRITTEN BY WOMEN
  2. PLAN WITH ME | To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
  3. HALLOWEEN RECS FOR SCAREDY-CATS

The friendships! The mutual love of something bigger than ourselves.
