Welcome back to BOOK AND A BEVERAGE!
In case you don’t know the deal about Book and a Beverage, it’s a very simple yet fun feature: We read books, we drink beverages, we take pictures of them and then I share your photos and a little about you to the blogging world!
Give a big welcome to Leah from Bookish Minion!
Name & Blog Name: Hey! I am Leah and I blog at BookishMinion
Tell us a little about your blog! I started blogging at the end of 2013 but did it sporadically through 2014. I blog about the books I read which means that you will get a wide variety of genres represented. I am getting more and more excited about blogging though, I now find it easier to put my thoughts across than when I started out.
What’s been your favorite post you’ve written so far? (Link us up!) Definitely has to be my very first post. I am sentimental.
Got anything special coming up we should know about? Well, this February has been so hectic I could not blog as I would have liked so I am going to make it up by making sure I have at least one post every week this month!
Whatcha reading? Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Where did it come from? (Library, purchased, publisher, etc) A friend was kind enough to lend me her copy.
Any special reason you chose to feature this book? I just love the book.
What’s important that we should know about this book? Would you recommend it? I am reading the entire series again…and in the right order. It is so exciting to see the little crumbs thrown here and there by J.K. Rowling. Yes, I would definitely recommend it.
Whatcha drinking? I am having iced coffee. (Just so you are prepared, coffee will feature a lot in this partJ).
What’s your favorite thing to drink while reading? While I am at home, I drink coffee or water. Yoghurt comes in a very close second. However, when I am not at home, I will probably have water or soda
Favorite beverage of all time. Go! Can you hazard a guess?? Yes…Coffee!
What are your top three books you would recommend to other people? You mean other than A Song of Ice and Fire and Harry Potter, right ;)? Well, I absolutely love travel books by Bill Bryson. He is absolutely hilarious and has the most stimulating and outrageous encounters while travelling. I would also recommend the Hannibal series by Thomas Harris for anyone who wants to be thrilled. I enjoyed reading Better by Atul Gawande, his stories are based in the medical world but have a profound impact on your day to day life choices. I can’t stop without an honorable mention to my favorite authors Douglas Adams and Ngugi wa Thiong’o!
What’s your proudest blogging/reading/writing moment? My very first post was a very proud moment for me. It kicked my zeal for reading into overdrive. The first time one of my friends read a book or a book in a genre that was new to them based on a review I did was also pretty amazing.
Anything else you’d like to share? Well, check out my blog! Thank you Brittany for featuring me 🙂
Thanks, Leah! HOORAY for Harry Potter!! I actually JUST finished my series re-read of Harry Potter for the first time in years and it was SO much fun!
Hey, can you never have too much coffee, right? (I guess you can, but I love copious amounts!)
