Every single milestone I hit I find myself in shock. I started creating my little corner of the internet because of my love for books, hoping to share my heart with all of you. I never expected for my words to ever reach so many people and I can’t believe the growth that has come from the passion that lives inside me. 

Without all the love that has poured out from this community I truly would be just a speck of dust floating on the wind. In many ways I still am, but from all your support I feel just the tiniest bit bigger. 

From my heart to yours, Thank you! 

I can’t believe that I’ve hit 500 followers!

Last milestone I had mentioned I wanted to create a Q & A so that I could answer any questions you all may have for me. I am now happy to say it is here! 

Questions from awesome bloggers in this community

Seaweed Books asks

What’s  your Hogwarts and Ilvermorny house?

According to the buzz feed sorting hat quiz I belong in Ravenclaw! However my percentages are:  32% Ravenclaw, 30% Hufflepuff, 20% Gryffindor, and 18% Slytherin! Missed Hufflepuff by just a hair! 

I am also apparently part of the Thunderbird house. I love that it represents the soul that truly is what I’m all about!

 Favourite genre?

Fantasy is what brought me into the reading world and it will be what I love most till death takes me out of the reading world. 

 A hyped book you didn’t like?

There really hasn’t been any overly hyped books that I didn’t like. The ones I know I probably wouldn’t like I don’t read. It’s saved me from the fandom hate…..

Favorite thing about the WordPress book community you love. 

Reading all your lovely posts! The blogging community is such a hardworking community and reading everyone’s posts make me so happy!

Ava the Nerd asks 
What is your favourite food?

Quesadillas! I have some almost every night and they always taste delicious to me!

Your favourite anime?

Angel Beats is so beautiful and hilarious yet at other times heartbreaking! Plus the intro music is just stunning!

What are you most afraid of?

Fire is beautiful to look at, but truly I am afraid of burning myself accidentally from my clumsiness. I am also irrationally afraid of knifes, I can hold one and I can use them, but if someone else is using one I am always afraid that they will accidentally stab me or me accidentally stabbing them from tripping or something. Which actually almost happened, my mom was holding a knife tripped with it in her hand and almost stabbed me where I was sitting in my chair… thank God for that chair! Mostly I’m afraid of accidentally hurting myself or others, but fire and knifes are the worst. 

Evy Reads Books Blog asks

How do you organise your bookshelves?

By author and genre mostly and somewhat series vs. standalones. I’m running out of shelf space so my shelves as kinda a mess right now. 

 How do you find time to read?

Well I do my best to forget about all the things I am supposed to be doing, hide, and read some glorious books! Also, this month I gave up YouTube so that helps immensely. 
Amy’s Book Corner asks 
What got you into reading?

I call Twilight my gateway drug and my 5th grade teacher Ms. Ohonion my dealer. This book was the first real book that I ever read. It began something that will be a part of my life forever. 

Why did you decide to do a blog dedicated to your love of reading? Did you find it hard?

Because books are something I love so much I never find book blogging tedious or hard. I give myself to every post I make and I love every second of it. The blogging community itself and the response I get makes any issue I would ever have completely invalid. 

If you chose one book to take to a vacation with you, which one would you choose?

Currently, I would take my signed copy of And I Darken! I need to read it and a vacation would be a lovely way to got read it. 
Write Ally Write! asks 
how would you describe yourself in three words?

Brilliantly Bookish asks
Have you sorted yourself in a camp Halfblood cabin? 

There is something about me and cabins with birds… anyway I am a daughter of Zeus! The air is my domain. Your getting all my cabins in this post!

Is there a language you would love to learn? 

All the languages! Seriously… all of them, but if I had to choose one it would be: 

French is such a beautiful language, it would be a amazing to be able to speak it. 

What is your favourite fandom?

Uhh… you can’t make me choose on this one… nope.. not happening. 

Olga’s Oddish Obsession asks 
If you could only choose one book to read for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

It would have to be a random novel that the universe grants to me… to choose would be agonizing.. I’d rather God decide he knows what’s best for me (p.s. The Bible doesn’t count to me, Scripture doesn’t feel much like reading a book)

Have you written a story you would like to publish one day?

I’m always trying to write as much as I can and even though I have only one book finished there are many poems and little stories I would love to see published. Plus I’m on my way to writing many more books! 

Creative Minds 101 asks 
Why did you start your blog? 

My sole reason for starting this blog was my undying love for books. I always had so much to say about what I read and no place to say them and so The Book Raven was born! (Special thanks to my sister who pushed me towards this path) 

Who is your favorite author?

Julie Kagawa is not only my favorite author, but she is my idol. I don’t know how she writes so prolifically and so well, but I aspire to write at her level!

The Belgian Reviewer asks 

what’s the name of the book that everybody seems to love but you? 

I really enjoyed Divergent, but I didn’t love it. It is a fun read though. 

what’s the book that nobody seems to love, but you?

I adore this book! Most people either love it or hate it, but mostly people dislike it. Something about this book makes me love it and I am not ashamed!
Whimsically Meghan asks 
What’s your favourite colour? 

Tardis blue! This color is so beautiful and I wish I saw it as an official color!

Follow up: Do you think you read books based on your favourite colour being the on the cover?

I wish there were books with tardis blue on the cover! I don’t ever see it, but I’d definitely buy one with it! 

That’s all for the questions! 

Thank you all so much for being here. This journey has been one of so much hope and happiness for me. I hope all the best for all of you. Much love, stay safe, and stay awesome! All you do means the world to me. 

As always, let me know your thoughts in the comments!! What do you think I should do for my next milestone? Your thoughts are always very much appreciated!

-Till next time!

  3. Congratulations of 500 followers! Those quesadillas are making me hungry- an excellent choice! I always say The Perks of Being a Wallflower got me into reading but I forgot until I read this post that Twilight had a pretty big impact on me too! I wish I’d learnt French too. Its so soothing to listen to!

  4. I loved reading your answers! I’ve never known anyone to have Tardis blue as their favourite colour, I love how your favourite is so specific, unlike me where I’m like if it’s purple there is about a 90% chance I will love it! 🙂

    Quesadillas and fantasy books are awesome! They're my favorite genre too 🙂 I guess I need to sort myself into a cabin and Ilvermorny house now…
    Hoping to read more from you soon! 🙂

  6. Congratulations, you go girl 😀 Great questions and amazing answers, I have loved reading them so much :d I definitely have to try those Quesadillas they look so appetizing.

    and let me just. OH THE CAULDRON you have to read And I Darken I loved it when I read it last year, one of my favorites 😀
    And thank you for answering my question, I have never actually read Twilight the film put me off. I did try but I just couldn’t force myself… 😀

    1. Thank you for the awesome comment! Quesadillas are really neat 😄
      Angels Beats broke my heart as well and it all hit me so hard, because I never in a million years expected for that to happen, I cried so many tears because of it! 😭
      I am definitely looking forward to reading And I Darken! I hope that it will be one of the first books I read next month (fingers crossed). I am very excited for it! 🤗
      The movie ruined Twilight for a lot of people sadly.. I read it a bit before the movies came out and the movie was kind of a disappointment, especially New Moon and on, I don’t remember even seeing breaking dawn when it came out. 🙃
