Q.1 Please introduce yourself - Where are you from? How long have you been blogging? What’s the name of your blog? What made you decide to start a book blog?
A. Hello! I am Meghaa, from Chennai, but my native is Kerala. I have been blogging for the past year. My blog’s name is writterbuddie. From my childhood days, I loved reading, be it Malayalam kids comics to Tinkle and my favorite Nancy Drew books in school. 

During my college days, I lost touch with reading and felt like I missed the joy of reading, and being transported to some other parallel world inside my head. After finishing college, it was back to books and me. That's when I thought of putting up reviews and ended up starting my blog. The sole aim was to get in touch with fellow readers, know their views and book suggestions.

Q.2 What is your favorite genre and book?
A. My favorite genre is Non-fiction of course. I like Young Adult books and of course, Fiction too. My favorite genres in fiction are mystery, thrillers, and psychology-related reads. I don't think I can name one favorite book, but then How to Kill a Mockingbird had a long-lasting effect on me, and maybe, yes that's my favorite book.

Q.3 What one piece of advice do you wish you’d had when you first started book blogging?
A. I wish someone had told me not to put up to content just for the sake of likes and followers (because that's what I have been seeing everywhere on social media, lately), that quality of your content matters more.

Q.4 What piece of advice would you like to give to other bloggers?
A. First of all, be honest about your views. Don't review for money, instead be genuine because there are people out there who might get recommendations from your profile and those recommendations must be worth their time and money.

Q.5 How many books are actually on your bookshelf/shelves right now?
A. Around 100.

Q.6 If you could be a character from a book for just one day who would you be and why?
A. That would definitely be Holly from PS I Love You! Yes, since I loved the way the author portrayed her journey from a heartbroken woman, picking the broken pieces in her life to the smart, successful role model she turns to be, with the past, still afresh in her mind.

Q.7 Is blogging your profession or just a hobby? Does your family support you? What’s their take on this?
A. Blogging is my hobby and I do it out of my love for books. My family wholeheartedly supports me. They know I am an avid reader, and they are okay with me blogging as far as I actively engage in household-related stuff and family functions as well (not to forget my job as a Technical Writer though).

Q.8 What do you think is the best strategy for getting more visitors to a blog?
A. Engage with fellow bloggers, get to know the tastes of your subscribers, and put up the content accordingly. Be authentic and actively engage with your audience.

Q.9 What are the top 3 characteristics you look for in a good book?
A. Style of writing, character development, and editing. These three are of utmost need for a book to be well received and meaningful.

Q.10 What are your favorite Instagram/Bookstagram/Booktuber accounts?
A. There are many. My favorites are Harshita from Stunning Bookworm and Simrin from SimrinKapoor95.

A few words for our readers and Books Charming -
Books charming is definitely one of the best bookstagram accounts in terms of genuine content. And as for readers - Reading is almost like a necessity, at least make time to read a book every month. I assure you will gain so much from books.
