Tell us a little bit about yourself:
Hi! My name is Charli, I’m 13 years old and I’m a book blogger at To Another World.
I love reading, writing, blogging, photography and my interests also include law/politics and debating!
Why did you start blogging? Why do you continue to do it? How long have you been blogging?
I started blogging when I was 11 years old over at my old general blog, Life Through Rose-Tinted SunGlasses, because I was having a tough time. I continued because I love it.
In June this year, I started To Another World because I’ve always loved books. Then, I closed RTSG in August because I was doing too much and had less enthusiasm for it. Officially I’ve been blogging for a year and a quarter (woah!), but for 4 months on TAW.
What influences your decision to read/buy a book?
Well, usually the synopsis, though I usually read the first few pages if it’s one I’m buying. Now, though, I have to read review books so I don’t have a huge choice!
What do you think about book trailers?
I’m not keen on them to be honest, so I don’t normally watch them.
What are your opinions on authors commenting on reviews of their books?
It depends. I don’t mind if they are thanking them, but criticism is horrible.
Have you written a book or are you planning to in the future?
I wrote a 10k novella last year, but I don’t plan to do anything with it.
Is there a particular movie or TV series that you preferred over the book version?
If you could be on one reality TV show, what would it be?
Hmm. I don’t know. Big Brother? I would just take the mick out of everyone.
What is the best advice you have been given?
Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets with regrets.
So love the people that treat you right and forget about the ones that don’t. And believe that everything happens for a reason…. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said it would be easy… They just promised it would be worth it.
How many books do you read in a month on average?
Factoring in school, note taking etc about 10-15.
What book are you currently reading?
I’m reading Shooting Stars by Allison Rushby and then I don’t have any for a few days!
If you could have dinner with anyone, past or present, fictional or real, who would it be? Why?
So many people!
