'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

Feature & Follow #12
So here's Fridays meme: Feature and Follow hosted over at Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The aim of the blog is to gain new followers! :) How to participate:
Gain new followers and make new friends with the Book Blogger Feature & Follow! If this is your first time here, welcome! You are about to make some new friends and gain new followers -- but you have to know -- the point of this hop is to follow other bloggers also. I follow you, you follow me.
What sets this Hop apart from others, is the Feature. Each week they will showcase a Featured Blogger, from all different genres and areas. Just remember it is required, if you participate, to follow the Features and you must follow the hosts (Parajunkee & Alison Can Read) as a courtesy.
Q: What have you learned from book blogging that you didn't know before about the publishing industry?
I've only been blogging for roughly 6 months so I definitely still have a lot to learn. It's been really nice to chat and share views with new up and coming authors, it has also made it a lot less daunting to pursue a career in publishing. I had no idea that websites such as Net Galley existed and that you were able to request ARC's to read and review. It's also cleared up what exactly I want to do for me through exploring difference routes and I'm so excited to finish my Masters and to start job hunting. Nothing makes me happier than the thought that one day I may be able to be a member of the team which puts so many books on shelves :).
P.S. I am also currently hosting a giveaway: a paperback copy of Lara Adrian's Kiss of Midnight. Click here to enter :).
