Today I'm introducing you to Elin from The Norwegian Book girl. She's new to the blogging world but is doing a fantastic job and is quickly gaining new followers who agree with me. The blog is pretty and inviting and I always feel like I've been transported to a different world when I visit.Your Name: Elin
Name of your blog: The Norwegian Book Girl - http://norwegianbookgirl.blogspot.com/
When did you start The Norwegian Bookgirl? I started the blog on July 18th, so it is pretty fresh. I have been blogging in Norwegian since January, but since I am reading so many English books, I decided to set up an English blog as well. That way I can better interact with book bloggers from all over the world, and spread the word about all the amazing books that are out there to a much larger audience.
Number of followers? 232
What do you review? My main focus on The Norwegian Book Girl is YA (paranormal, urban & fantasy), paranormal romance and historical fiction. I will occasionally review books in genres such as crime, mystery & thrillers.
How did you get the name for your blog? I did a lot of thinking before I decided on a name. The name on my Norwegian blog, translated into English, is BookMistress. But when I googled that name, I found out that it was taken by an online book-shop. I also came up with other names, that all turned out to be taken. Then I started thinking: the blog name should say something about me. I am a Norwegian girl who loves book, and there I got the name.
How would you describe your blog? A place where books are worshipped by a passionate reader and a place where the readers can find reviews written from a personal point of view. I also feature authors I like, will give some advice on good, Scandinavian literature and present the readers for news concerning books. A blog that breathes books.
What kind of blogger are you? Very organized or fly by the seat of your pants? Both, I think. I always try to plan ahead on what I am going to be blogging about from week to week. I try to post something once a day, so that the readers have something to come back too. I have a book where I write down what I will post on specific dates, which memes I am following, that sort of thing.
What is your favorite review or post for your own blog? That was a hard question. I think this review: http://norwegianbookgirl.blogspot.com/
What is your favorite blog? That was an extremely hard question. There is so many I like and I visit many, many blogs everyday, and every week I discover more wonderful blogs and bloggers. It doesn’t feel fair to focus on just one. I would like to mention some blogs that have teached me a lot about bookblogging in general and blogs that have been an inspiration:
The Story Siren
I Just Wanna Sit Here and Read
Book Chick City
Confessions of a Bookaholic
Larissa’s Bookisk Life
What are you reading right now? Dark Ouch: The SHadows by Amy Merideth and Kiss of the Rose by Kate Pearce and I'm enjoying both of them.
Thank you for stopping by Elin!
