Today I’m really excited to be launching #TopFiveThursday, I wanted a regular feature for my blog, and after much thought I decided to ask some awesome book bloggers 5 questions about books and blogging. Kicking of the first ever #TopFiveThursday is the lovely Tracy Shephard who runs https://tracyshephard.wordpress.com/
Top 5 books you have read this year (so far)?
Play Dead ..Angela Marsons I am inspo for the character Tracy Frost and I love her.. also Angie is such a fab author and has done so well this year.
The Night Book… Richard Madeley I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I did think it would be a bit naff.
Daisy in Chains..Sharon Bolton.. just simply fabulous
The Asylum…Johan Theorin.. I loved the intensity of this novel.. secrets galore.
Paula Daly.. Anything by her.. I would read the side of a sauce bottle if she wrote it.. definitely my fav all time author.
Top 5 authors you think everyone should read?
Paula Daly.. Stephen King.. because he is both good and bad at what he does. Angela Marsons.. LJ Ross her DCI Ryan mystery series is brilliant.. Sarah Pinborough
Top 5 books you want to read before the end of 2016?
Oh God.. this is difficult. My TBR pile like most bloggers is huge and I just wish I could read non stop. I would like to get through some historical novels that I have been putting off.
Top 5 blogging tips that you would give to new bloggers?
Enjoy what you do.
It’s not about the numbers.. views, tweets and mentions are fab, but not everyone is going to be the most popular or the most interesting, I just like to be honest in my reviews and if other people like them that’s good. if not that’s good too.
Read what you love. At the start I read a number of books I didn’t enjoy, just because I felt I had to.
Read other blogs and reviews. Some good points can be picked up and you can make some good ‘friends’.
Remember it’s done for fun. don’t stress if you miss a deadline.
Top 5 book blogs you follow?
I have been blogging for just over a year you can find me here https://tracyshephard.wordpress.com/. Other than reading I like crafting and having lunch with my girlfriends.
