Books, Reviews et al by Shalini

Meet Shalini!  Shalini is one of the first people I connected with when I started Book Blogging.  As well as her own blog ‘Books, Reviews et al by Shalini, she also runs Digital Reads Blog Tours, a few of which I’ve taken part in.

A more lovely woman you will struggle to meet in the Book Blogging community, if you don’t already I urge you to go give her blogs and Twitter a follow.

Here’s her Online Blanket Fort responses!

Who are you?

I think I am a human from Planet Earth.

I am Shalini, a book reviewer amongst other things

Books, Reviews et al by Shalini


When did you start?

May 30th 2017

WHY did you start?

I wish I could say something inspiring. A couple of Facebook friends wanted me to join their blog. I had no idea what blogging entailed. As I was surfing the internet to learn, the WordPress link opened, it asked me to open an account, so I did.

An author too encouraged me to write book reviews; he felt I was good at it.

Hence here I am, now on a journey of discovering ME

What sort of posts do you feature?

Reviews, Book Spotlights, Author Interviews, Blog Tours, My Personal Writings, Product Reviews, Awards and Tags

Ever made yourself a blanket fort?

Decades ago with my sister

What 3 essentials would you have in your Blanket Fort?

My sister, my niece, my mom though all of us might not fit.

Kindle, phone, and a power bank.

Blogging can be a very personal thing… have you told your friends and family that you have a blog?

I haven’t gone publicizing it amongst friends and family. But I suppose they know.

What are your passions, what makes you happy?

Family and books make me happy.

Describe your happy place for us.

Any place would be a happy place with my family. So home it is

Last one – If you were a sweetie… what would you be?

A sweetie is supposed to be a candy bar. I haven’t eaten any of those. As a kid, I used to like peppermint candy as it was sweet, but chilly and sometimes it came with a strong flavor. So that would be ME!

So, that’s Shalini!  You can read the Digital Reads Blog Tours that I’ve taken part in below!
