Blogger Interview: Willa from Willa’s Ramblings (My Little Sib)

Today I have a very special guest; my blogging little sis, Willa from Willa’s Ramblings!

What are you like outside of blogging?

Awesome. I read like a crazy person, play piano all the time, and write. A lot. I have this weird and a bit odd obsession with saying “dearie”/ “dear” a lot. I try to be funny frequently.

What book changed your life?

This question is too hard. Can I have two? I’m going with two.

First, Thirteen Reasons Why, which probably changed everyone’s life. This book made me think about bullying in a new way, and realize how the things we do can impact people in ways we never thought possible.

Second, Go Ask Alice, changed my life in ways that only a book can. This book made me so scared of drugs to the point that I know that will never. Ever. Do drugs. It also scared me like crazy.

What made you decide to start your blog?

Meredith (Mint Tea And A Good Book) and books. Meredith made me aware of the book blogging community, and that yes, I can blog about books. This made my world rock. Then I realized that I could take my addiction to books and happiness whenever I tell people to read a book into a site, and people could take my advice without having to meet me! (What a fantastic invention.)

What blogs/bloggers inspire you?

Meredith from Mint Tea and a Good Book, (My twin sister. Just kidding.) Kristi at The Story Siren, Katie (!) at Katie’s Book Blog (!) and Ginger at GReads. These people all rock, and answer my questions. Frequently.

What are your goals for your blog in the future?

I would love to reach a thousand followers! But this will take a while, so in the meantime I simply want to get the blog out there. Spread the word, meet more amazing people in the community, and put myself out in the blogosphere.

Do you love or hate your mailman?

Umm… Honestly, I just got a new one I haven’t met him/her yet. Our old one rocked. She fed my dogs treats every time she saw them.

-Book of all time: Right now? Lola and the Boy Next Door.
-New release: Lola. Sorry. It rocks.
-Genre: YA Romance. I’m a romantic.
Place to Read: Anywhere where I can not be disturbed.
-TV show: GLEE!
-Candy: Sour Patch kids. They are so addicting.
-Drink: Dr. Pepper. It’s a long story.
