This is the third stop in the Book Bratz Summer Blog Tour and I had the amazing opportunity to interview the hosts of this tour, The Book Bratz.
About The Book Bratz: We’re Amber and Jessica, and we’re the two teenage girls who run The Book Bratz (along with juggling school, extracurriculars, and family life, of course!). We hope you love our blog just as much as we do! For the time being, let’s introduce ourselves:
About Amber: I am Amber, 16 years old, from New York. Jessica and I have known each other since Kindergarten and have been friends since. In my past time, I enjoy reading (duh). I read when I am not suppose to (in math class especially.) I’m aspiring to be a doctor as well as a writer. With such a short attention span, I never manage to finish any of my stories (I have 25 saved drafts of different stories on my USB drive).
About Jessica: Hey there! My name is Jessica, and ever since I was five years old, I knew I wanted to be a writer. At the age of fifteen I self-published by debut novel, Switch, which you can check out here. I’m sixteen years old and some of my favorite hobbies are reading (duh), writing (double duh), and dancing (were you expecting that one?). I have a younger brother and a younger sister, thus making me the oldest (and therefore the coolest) sibling. Even though it’s absolutely terrifying to accept the fact that college is on the horizon, I plan to go to school for Creative Writing and to work in the Publishing Industry.
How long have you been blogging?
A year and a half!
Why did you start your blog?
Amber: Read Jessica’s answer:D
Jessica: Amber reached out to me and told me that we should start a website since all we do is talk about books. We bored all of our friends, so we were looking for some people with mutual interests that we wouldn’t bore. xD
What is good about having a co blogger? What is hard about it?
Amber: The good? Things actually get done and Jess keeps me on track most of the time. We almost always have something to post. The bad? I want to change the theme often (not that often) but Jessica likes it.
Jessica: I can’t really think of anything hard – normally this is where co-bloggers would say a difference in opinion, but we never really have that. The best part is that so much more gets done – we’re pretty much able to post every single day because with our combined reading speeds and teamwork, much more gets done. I highly advise bloggers to reach out and get co-bloggers. I don’t think we would be able to handle it on our own. xD
What has been both of your favorite experiences of being bloggers?
Amber: Getting to meet Sarah J. Maas
Jessica: Mine was definitely this past BookCon. I met so many people (including you, Marissa!!) and was recognized by so many great people, and we had so many friends with us and it was a great time.
If you could interview any author, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Amber: Jennifer L. Armentrout!
Jessica: John Green!
What do you enjoy most about hosting this blog tour?
Amber: Its is so cool seeing everyone’s personalities in their posts. Everyone is so awesome!
Jessica: Meeting so many awesome new bloggers!
What advice would you give to upcoming book bloggers?
Amber: Have fun with it!
Jessica: Get a co-blogger. That’s all I have to say about that. Oh, and network, network, network! Make friends!
