What is life like for a reviewer? What does it mean to be a book reviewer? How does book blogging impact their lives?… These questions tell a reviewer’s side of the story, and that is a side we hardly get to hear (compared to authors, that is). To bring a balance and to ask these and many more questions of book reviewers, we’ve started the weekly interview series – Life as a Book Blogger.
This week we have Christi from Smitten With Reading; a reviewer turned author, Christi answers questions about life, book blogging and becoming an author. 🙂
Christi started out as a book blogger and reviewer in 2010 with the intention of sharing her views on the books she read. Though she mostly reads for fun, she has accumulated tons of reviews on her blog over the years. Christi enjoys books in the chick-lit and romance and reads most anything within romance genre.
Apart from reviews Christi is also one of the hosts of the Tuesday Bookish Meme – Top Off Tuesday that is all about finding a gorgeous cover featuring a gorgeous male specimen. 🙂
An avid reader all her life Christi dreamt of someday writing books that would bring readers joy, the kind she felt when she read. Over the years, she jotted down ideas and scenes but never did really write that book until she turned 41. When she finally did start she wrote 150,000 words in four months! And hasn’t stopped since.
