Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
I’m Debz, a teenager who’s slightly obsessed with fairy tales! I’ve been book blogging since Spring of 2011, but ran about a dozen blogs long before I wrote reviews. I started up Debz Bookshelf as a way to keep my bookish thoughts from getting tangled up on my personal blog!
Where do you see your blog in five years?
By then I almost definitely will be at college, and as I’ve heard that blogging through college life is tough, hopefully I’ll still be alive and strong! (I make no promises! It’s a miracle my blog has survived a year already!)
Which is your favorite post that you have written that you want everyone to read?
I don’t have a favorite post, but I’d love it if people would check out my reviews (preferably from this year, because most of my old reviews are kind of pathetic) and let me know what they think!
What literary location would you most like to visit? Why?
Any world that Shannon Hale has created. Whether it’s Mount Eskel of Princess Academy, The Eight Realms of Book of a Thousand Days, or my personal favorite, Bayern!
Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How?
I used to read only middle grade fantasy and contemporary fiction. That was it. If you look back on my earlier reviews, you’ll see that I have very little YA fiction in there, and the YA I did have was very safe (for lack of a better word). As I’ve continued blogging, my tastes have definitely matured. And my genre preferences have shifted a lot; I hardly ever read contemporary, and I have discovered dystopia, which has literally changed my life.
I’d love to get to know you, too! Please comment away!
