About Me and My Reading Habits

map

Disclosure: In March 2015, Keira Gillett, the owner of this blog, self-published her first book in the middle grade / YA genre.

Keira used to co-blog with her younger sister (pseudonym Captain Lyaf Yarr, originally age 11 when the blog started) and their friends to discuss books they were reading and wanted to read. We came up with the pirate theme we are Yarr’s! (Yarr = Young Adult Reader and Reviewer.) Since the Captain grew up and started high school she hasn’t really blogged all that much, it’s now mainly First Mate Keira steering the pirate ship on the literary seas.

Captain Yarr’s profile:

Which do you like more: finishing a book or starting a new one?

I like finishing a book best because I like to know the ending and I feel very accomplished when I do.

Which reading format do you like best: print, audio, digital?

It depends what kind of book it is. For example I enjoy listening to Meg Cabot and J.K Rowling on audio because I love the narrators’ characters voices and acting.

How big is your TBR (to be read) pile and how many books do you read in a month?

I usually have between 2-10 books in my pile and I think I read between 2 and 5 books a month.

For fun share two truths and one false fact about yourself.

  1. My favorite color is red, which makes me very good at finding the X on a treasure map.
  2. I like to travel and have been to South America and crossed the entire length of the Panama Canal.
  3. I have walked the plank and got my vengeance when I incited a mutiny. That’s how I became Captain Yarr.

First Mate Keira’s profile:

Which do you like more: finishing a book or starting a new one?

Starting. It’s an adventure. Finishing means it’s over!!! :(

Which reading format do you like best: print, audio, digital?

Audio is preferred right now, but I do love the other types too.

How big is your TBR (to be read) pile and how many books do you read in a month?

Huge. I’ve shed 2,000 physical books by donating them to the library. Friends’ mothers knew I read and would give me their collections. I ran out of room. My digital library is equally big.

For fun share two truths and one false fact about yourself.

  1. I have many book boyfriends.
  2. I love traveling by boat over rivers, seas, and oceans.
  3. I hate asparagus.
