Welcome to part two of our “Life as a Book Blogger” series! This week features Carmen Seda, of ohthebookfeels. Self described bibliophile and photographer Seda, has been captivating audiences with her insights on books since 2009. In a rapidly changing society, we were curious to hear her thoughts on literature, blogging, and her love of reading- the results are listed below.
1) What was the first book you read that really made you love reading?
Honestly, Twilight!! I used to read when I was younger but then I stopped for a long tome. Then someone introduced me to the Twilight series and it was all up hill from there!
2) If you could be any character from any book, who would you be?
Such a tough question!! I love a strong and independent female lead. I’m currently reading the Throne of Glass series, and I absolutely love Celaena Sardothien!! But if I had to narrow it down, I would choose Tessa Gray from the Infernal Devices. Not only is she strong, smart, and independent, she has Will Herondale and James Carstairs… Need I say more?
3) A color to describe how you feel when you’re reading
Hmmm. I would probably choose blue. It’s such a peaceful amd relaxed color, and whenever I’m reading, I’m in my happy place! 🙂
4) What made you start your blog?
I was always giving my friends book recommendations!! It also got to a point where I wanted to talk about every book I read.. So I thought, why not start a blog? Then I could share my love of books with the world!
5) Any advice for aspiring book bloggers?
Just keep expressing your love for books, and post regularly. Always reach out to others, and converse with your followers 🙂 and KEEP READING!!
One thing we’ve learned from interviewing bloggers, is that passion drives success. Whether you dream of starting your own blog, company, or design, remember to live by love, and the rest will follow. Stay tuned for more insights from our favorite bloggers!
