Feature & Follow Friday (17)

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme
hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!

Hello there!!!
I am teepee, and this is my blog, Little Librocubicularist. This blog (and I) is so fortunate to have been chosen as one of the featured blogs this week. Thank you Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!

Interview Questions:

1. When did you start blogging?

I officially started blogging January last year. But the blogger account has been around since March 2011. It was just a requirement for a school subject we had back then. Then, I discovered book blogging and wanted to try it out. I reconstructed the blog on October 2012 and posted a some random book reviews from Goodreads. I realized how awful and disorganized the blog looks back then, so I remodeled it again. At the start of 2013, Little Librocubicularist has been officially born.

2. What is your favorite part of book blogging?

Getting and reading books, and people actually liking what I had written. I feel relieved and glad whenever someone comments on one of my reviews, or even give them likes on Goodreads, It's like an assurance that what I'm doing is okay (if not good), and I can continue doing it.

3. What type of books do you mainly blog about?

The blog is dedicated mostly to Young Adult books, and a few selected New Adult books as well. I read all genres of YA except horror, so expect a a diverse selection of books. But lately, I've been having a Contemporary fixation.

4. What are your favorite books?

Can we skip this question? It's so hard.

Okay, here are some of my favorite books

Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta is one of my favorite books. It has been one of the few books that has left me speechless after reading. Also, Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare (I have not read Clockwork Princess yet) and My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park has recently been added to my favorites list. There are a few more but I can't seem to remember... I feel bad for those who have not been mentioned.

5. What has been the best thing that has happened to you because of book blogging?

To be honest, getting books from authors or publishers is by far the most squeal-worthy moment I've ever experienced. It is number one on my list. And not far from the top spot is the part where authors actually acknowledge the things you said about their books. If getting books is squeal-worthy, this experience just blows my mind away.


Activity/Question:
What are your non-book guilty pleasures?
Like TV shows, food, websites, hobbies, etc...

According to Wikipedia (which is not the most reliable source)
A guilty pleasure is something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. The "guilt" involved is sometimes simply fear of others discovering one's lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes, such as campy styles of entertainment.
TV Shows:
  • Keeping Up With The Kardashians - I started watching this reality show years ago, and I always watched it with my sister. In all honesty we enjoyed watching it. It's fun of how these people do crazy stuff in front of the camera, proving to the world that their family is just a wreck. 
  • TMZ, E! News etc.. - What can I say? Celebrity gossip is entertaining sometimes.
  • Hannah Montana, Big Time Rush, JONAS etc.. - I LOVE watching these shows. End of story
Food:
I think I have nothing to add here.

Websites:
  • Probably Wattpad. I have my own Wattpad account, and I have stories there that I wrote. Only a few friends know my username there. I am kind of a different person there. I became inactive more than a year ago.
Hobbies:
  • Collecting candy and chocolate wrappers. (not really that guilty)

I probably have a few more guilty pleasures from years ago that I can't clearly remember. But for now, that's it. I hope all those up there are not extremely embarrassing.

  3. Hopping through. Love Hannah Montana. Is that still airing anywhere? I started watching it when I was going through a hard time about 6 years ago and it was such a crazy fun respite.

  10. I'm 24 and I'm still a huge BTR fan, Luckily they're all my age in real life so it makes me feel less creepy.

    I know people who collect candy wrappers so that they can make things out of them.
