Since this is a new space for me, I thought I should tell you a little something about myself!
I’m not really new…
This is actually my second book blog. I began book blogging in… I want to say 2018… as Mim Inkling. And then I quit. I was busy – new muggle job, moving across country, wedding planning, a new side hustle… And I thought I should be focusing on more practical outlets. Honestly, I just really missed it! The bookish community, the great book recommendations, and the creativity of blogging. I had a blast doing it! Eventually, life quietened down and so, here I am again for round two. I’m really going to try not to quit this time!
Where I’m from… I’m English and I currently live in a tiny village in Cheshire, on the border of Wales.
What I’m going to blog about… books. And I’ll share some of my writing. That’s about it! If you want to follow me, I’m on Instagram as @onceuponanelderberry – I’d love to connect with you over there!
Three random facts… I’m a qualified information law specialist, I have a dog called Rubeus, and my favourite ice cream is salted caramel.
Dream job… Writer.
If I could live anywhere… I’d like a house in Wales. I’d probably also spend part of the year in Cornwall, Norway, Sweden, and the US, given a choice.
My favourite book… Such a difficult question! I’m going to cheat and go top three: Pride and Prejudice, Chocolat, and The Five People You Meet In Heaven.
The fictional character I would most like to be… Kinsey Millhone from Sue Grafton’s alphabet series. She’s badass!
Favourite book heroine… Elizabeth Bennett. Always and forever.
Fictional character I’d most like to date… Heathcliff. Honestly, he was just too sexy!
Favourite series… Again, far too many! Sue Grafton’s alphabet series, Harry Potter, all of the Hercule Poirot books (if that counts as a series), Trudi Canavan’s Black Magician trilogy, The Invisible Library series…
Book setting I’d most like to visit… The invisible library is pretty high up the list! The Shire would be quite cool. The entire Harry Potter world, obviously.
The last book I read was… something trashy and satisfying by Katie Fforde. I love a good cozy romance!
