Book Humans Interviews: MaineMuse

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 Sharon, the book blogger behind MaineMuse! 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?
As an author myself, I know how hard it is to get people to read and review my books. It is like pulling teeth from a grown adult. So this is my way of giving back to the community of authors and book lovers. Plus, I am an avid reader.

Q2: What do you like the most about said community?
I love how anyone can be a blogger about books. I am surrounded by people who don’t read and to be honest that just floors me. So, when I found a community of people who reviewed and then showcased it, I was extremely happy.

Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?
Gosh, such a hard question. “The Outsider” by Stephen King and heck anything by King to be honest. Huge fan here of someone that is from my home state.

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

  1. “The Yard”
  2. “Heirs of Ashes”
  3. “The Anti-Inflammatory Diet”

Book Humans Interviews: Stars.Brite

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 Rameela, the bookstagrammer behind Stars.Brite! 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 first discovered bookstagram when I saw Renee Ahdieh’s really aesthetic photos of her books and then I saw this huge community of book lovers like me! I saw some really awesome new book recommendations and decided that I wanted to make some bookish friends too and voila!

Q2: What do you like the most about said community?

Everyone is so supportive and enthusiastic about the books they enjoy! And it’s so cool to have these platforms to communicate not only with other book enthusiasts but even aspiring authors and published authors! The energy is so wonderful!

Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?

Percy Jackson and the Olympians because that series is what really got me into reading. I’ve been with Percy since elementary school and now in medical school, it’s still a huge part of my life! It’s funny, relatable, and is my favorite comfort read!

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

  1. We Hunt The Flame
  2. Hearts, Strings, and Other Breakable Things
  3. Shine The Stars

Book Humans Interviews: Sophistikated

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 Kate, the book blogger behind Sophistikated! 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 have been a reader and a book collector since I was a child. I had started to watch booktubers when I was in 7th or 8th grade and the videos made me want to be a part of a community like that. I tried my hand at booktubing, but discovered I was more comfortable being behind the scenes and writing about everything I loved about books versus talking about them.

Q2: What do you like the most about said community?

I love how accepting everyone is of everyone. When I first meet people from the community, I was not really a blogger as I was writing for the odyssey online and writing about various topics on a larger platform than a blog would give me. Despite not being a blogger, my friends from the community welcomed me anyways and I became a part of something that I will always cherish.

Q3: What’s a book you will always recommend – regardless of age or genre – and why?

Percy Jackson, The Lightning Thief, because Rick Riordan recognizes disabilities that often do not get enough attention or recognized as disabilities and makes the main characters basically superheroes and even more special because of these disabilities and I think it’s important for people to recognize that people are also more than their disability.

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

  1. 5 Books To Read Before You Die
  2. A Library Card….Book Nerd Edition Pt 2
  3. Summer Blogging Promo Tour: Week 2! We Design Our Own Subscription Boxes

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:

  1. Guest Post: From Visual to Verbal – How my Design Career Influences my Writing by Jacqueline Firkins
  2. Eight Novels Written in Verse You Should Try
  3. Not Every Book is Appropriate for Every Situation (And That’s Okay)
