Armchair BEA: Introductions

Design by Amber of Shelf Notes

Hey gang, I’ve decided to participate in Armchair BEA this year! This is my first time taking part and I’m really excited about this, but I will only be posting every other day because I still want to post my reviews. I’ll also be taking part in the Instagram challenge, and I have linked to my page down below!


1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself. Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
My name is Louise and I’m blogging from England. I’ve been blogging for almost three years now (although I did take an extended hiatus from last September until January just gone) and I don’t exactly remember how I got into blogging properly. I think it was because the members of a Goodreads group that I used to be in were sharing links to their blogs and I was inspired to make one of my own. I’d honestly thought that it wouldn’t be something that I’d keep up with all the time, but here I still am!

2. Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. — so we can connect more online.
“Nerdy ramblings from the alien-obsessed biggest kid in the known universe” (that sounds good to me!)

I can be found on:

3. What genre do you read the most? I love to read because _______
I read a lot of science-fiction, which is my favourite genre of everything because robots, aliens, and going to different planets is just the coolest thing ever to me. I love to read because I’m able to piece together descriptions with my own imagination and get a picture of how I imagine things to play out, whereas with films and TV shows (which I do still love, though) I’m given how another person imagined it, which a lot of the time is quite different. Plus, I’ve always loved reading! It’s fun!

4. Spread the love by naming your favourite blogs/bloggers (doesn’t necessarily have to be book blogs/bloggers).
Some of my favourite blogs include:

And I also have a few favourite BookTubers too!:

5. What book would you love to see as a movie?
I would love to see the Leviathan trilogy by Scott Westerfeld (one of my favourite book series ever) be made into a movie series. I was watching a BookTube vlog a little while back that said that the series would be amazing as an animated film (it would be the most awesome thing ever if Studio Ghibli made Leviathan into a movie) and I can’t help but agree so much. An animated Leviathan movie by Studio Ghibli? Uh, yes please!

    Oh, I agree–Leviathan would make a great movie!

    Thanks for the blog list–I only know one of them, and will go visit the others.

    Hello Louise, nice to meet you ๐Ÿ˜€ I saw your reading spot on Instagram and I also love reading on my bed. One of the comfiest places! "Nerdy ramblings" I like that part of your description.

    Hi Lousie! Nice to meet you! I reallym like your blog design with all the planets in the background. I never was a big sci-fi fan, but reading the Nogiku series by SJ Pajonas and seeing the star wars movies changed my opinion of the genre and I am looking for more awesome sci-fi books now. Just like you I prefer books to movies as then I create my own image instead of how another person imaged it. Nose Graze, the Perpetual Page turner and XpressoReads are some of my favourite blogs as well!

    Well, hello there Louise! Space is awesommeeeeee. ;D

    Oh my goddd, totally dying at the image of Mr Burns with a moustache. What even? We should make a petition to get Studio Ghibli to make an animated Leviathan movie. It would be THE best.

    Hi, Louise! What part of England are you from? I've always wanted to visit (from the States) but haven't found a way to save up the money for such a trip…yet! I'm a classics and literary fiction lover, mostly, but I really enjoy sci-fi/fantasy, too. I love the idea of exploring possibilities, other worlds, alternate realities, etc.

    Happy Armchair BEA to you. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love science-fiction too and if a book or show takes place in space then I'll definitely at least check it out.
