Interviewing Rita @ Weaving Pages: It's Good To Be Crazy

The motto of this interview is: it's OK if you are crazy when interviewing someone. Especially if it's Rita. But it's not exclusive to Rita... I know a lot of other crazy bloggers... But this isn't about them, this is about my book-pushing buddy who always screams her pride, from rooftops, when I read books she suggested.
Sounds like a normal book blogger, right? Yup- I'm interviewing my first book blogger. Rita may be a fairly new blogger but who cares? As the months stack on to her blog, and the months in which we've been friends increase, the blog she has nurtured is really getting out there. I know it has lots of fans already as it truly does stand out and frankly she's an awesome book-lover; as I said, Rita has been known to push books. This amazing gal also shares my love for GIFs, craziness & is so thoughtful.
If being owner of one of my favourite blogs, Weaving Pages, isn't enough... wait for it, she does steal book boyfriends :P If you like, and can handle, creative crazy people Rita will never fail to put a smile on your face (: I'm so happy she's stopped by and is answering some of my questions (bolded).

If you could have only one of your five senses, which would you keep?
Probably my sight because then I would still be able to read and see the world!! But then, I wouldn't be able to hear film adaptations of books.....Or be able to stroke or smell books OR taste food.........*cries in despair* This is a mean question, Amy!

Hehe... I can't promise I'll be getting nicer! 
*pats on back* If you could be best friends with any fictional character, who would you choose?
There are so many!!!! I'm going to break the rules and tell you all of them: Katniss from The Hunger Games, Isabelle from The Mortal Instruments, Teresa from The Maze Runner. How's that? They are all pretty awesome so I can't choose!

No boys as BBFs? But fictional ones are just like, ahh... Name some of your favourite book bloggers!
There are so many though.....Okay, I'll answer but I'll probably miss someone....Sorry!
Obviously there's you, (if you don't know who that is it's Amy) then there's Amber from Books of Amber, Zoe from Bookhi, Hawwa from It Was Lovely Reading You, Sunny from A Sunny Spot, Lucy from Queen of Contemporary, Sophie from A Day Dreamer's World, Debby from Snuggly Oranges, Judith from Paperiot, the list goes on and on and I'm pretty sure I've missed someone! If I talk to you on twitter, then you're on my list of awesome bloggers!

Aww, thanks! I love many of those bloggers too. On Wednesdays, you share a Wattpad story with us... Do you write stories on Wattpad or anywhere else?
No...I don't write stories on Wattpad! I do love writing though! Creative writing in English where you can describe things and write your own story is one of my favourite things to do, but we haven't really done that since primary school! :D

When you're not blogging, what do you like to do?
Reading. Haha. I like Dancing (I do ballet, and will hopefully be starting Jazz) I like watching films and being crazy. Oh, I like Dinosaurs, which means I REALLY like watching Jurassic Park

Say what...? You like reading!? :P If you could rewind to the day you started blogging, is there anything you'd say to yourself?
I'd tell myself not to worry about how many page views I'm getting and to keep on writing reviews! That eventually, all the hard work I was putting into my blog would pay off! And it has!!

Great advice to yourself! Do you have any tips to give to future book bloggers...? I'm especially interested to see if you have any regarding blog designs as yours is fab!
Well, firstly, you should get Twitter! That's how I met Amy, so everyone should definitely get it! Also, lots of websites have really cool, free templates you can use on your blog, so it's worth having a look around the Internet and finding out how to do things!

Awesome! Lastly, quick question! Sad books or funny ones?
Funny Ones!!

It's great that Rita could pop in! She's interviewed me over at her blog today as well... Check it out if you want to know why she... y'know, creates T-Shirts like this:
Rather, how did it start? Making them for me?

Just visited Rita and followed her!

Rita (Weaving Pages) said...

WOO HOO! OUR INTERVIEW IS UP!!! It looks great and I love the images!! And yes, I am the QUEEN OF T-SHIRTS...BOW DOWN TO ME

Roberta R. said...

I also read your interview on Rita's site and smiled a lot. Some witty answers!

On a side note...another Dean gif. Everyone who uses gifs is into Dean lately, huh? He's too young for me, and I usually go for the dark-haired type, preferably with long, curly hair...but in this case, I can make an exception ;).

Hey Amy! I loved yours and Rita's interview. :) You guys are pretty awesome.
Why don'y you write a post talking about Twitter and book blogging? It would be really helpful for clueless people like me, who still can't figure out how to properly use it.
Best, Pat

@Roberta: I'm glad you've followed one of my top blogger friends! You read both? You must like craziness; thank you. I don't know of this 'Dean', am I behind the times? I just search GIFs randomly- sometimes I know who's who (often for the Glee ones) & other times it's anybody's guess, or rather, people tell me! So forgive me for being hopeless & I appreciate you stopping by to comment *hugs*

@Rita: THANKS FOR TELLING ME SOMETHING I ALREADY KNEW! (Sorry, that sounds like shouting cos it's in caps, it's a habit when we are talking to each other & not trying to be comprehensible. I felt, for us, that review was pretty damn sane but oh well... People get that you're a frickin' awesome book blogger to know & if they don't... One word: stupid. I'm glad you approve of the images... Do you know who that Dean guy is?!

@Pat (thegirlwhokeepsreading): Girl, I love you. And not just because you loved our interview but cos you inspired us. I've totally taken action & will let you know when a post, or hopefully two (y'know... for Goodreads as well) is coming up! I'm loving talking to you about The Bookish Games as well, we're obviously pretty close at some points! Don't forget you're awesome too; thanks for stopping by!

Looking for something?...
