Q: What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?
I started blogging in May, 2012. My grandfather died a few years back. Also five years ago in April my mother died after battling cancer; a few years later my niece killed herself in April. April is not a good month and I've been finding myself becoming depressed every April. My mother always used to tell me the best way out of depression is doing something positive. So, starting a book blog was always something I talked about, but never quite managed to do. But this year I felt inspired to do it because I can do it, because I'm still alive and here. This is the year I pull out of my funk and actually start doing all the things I've been meaning to do, but putting off. Waiting for a better time. I'm also going to do NaNoWriMo this year because I've been "meaning to" write down all of the stories I made up for my kids when they were young.
