Featured Blogger: Mani from Mani’s Book Corner!

Hey guys! As you probably already know, throughout the month of November I’m shining a spotlight on thirty wonderful book bloggers 😊📚 If you’re not already following them, then I’d definitely recommend that you check them out – these guys are all such wonderful bloggers and all incredibly kind and supportive.

Today is the turn of the wonderful Mani (from Mani’s Book Corner) who posts some great reviews, beautiful quotes and other exciting bookish content!

Hi, fellow bookworms!!!e7c7d19d3b5cb16023dbb4034b15c4e1

Firstly a massive thank you to Hannah for choosing me to take part in her guest post. I really enjoyed answering the questions she sent me.

Here’s a little about myself and my blog.

20180902_122040.jpgMy name’s Mani and you can find me over at Mani’s Book Corner. I started my blog in July this year, and I have loved every minute of it so far. I have been welcomed by the book blogger community and I thank you all.

I’ve wanted to start blogging for a very long time but just didn’t know where to start. And then in July this year I was sorting out my cupboards and I found some old notepads with some rough book reviews that I had written for Lovereading.co.uk and I thought it would be cool to have a Blog where I could share my reviews as well as my love for books, with other book lovers and also make some new book loving friends on the way. So far I haven’t regretted it one bit.

Where did your love of reading come from?

From my parents and brother. When I was small I spent a lot of time in hospital so missed a lot of school and was very behind in my reading and writing skills, so my brother used to read his schoolbooks to me, I picked up reading skill very fast. Also mum and dad encouraged both me and my brother to read as much as possible. Mum used to take us to the local library twice a week and I remember I used to come home with the most books. Nearly every month Dad used to buy both me and my brother books to read. So books and reading have been a love of mine since an early age.

What is your favourite book that you’d recommend to anyone and everyone?

20181122_112215It would have to be Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. It’s a big book but I managed
to finish it in just under 4 weeks. When I brought my copy I also brought a copy for my best friend and she also loved it. If you haven’t read it then, I recommend you go and read it.

Which author (dead or alive) would you love to meet and why?

Oh, this is a hard one, there are a few that I would love to meet. But if I to choose only one then I would have to choose Stephen King. I love reading his book, I own nearly all of them 11 of them in paperback and the rest on my kindle. 

What is the most memorable/sentimental book you’ve read?

20181122_112312.jpgI would have to say Handle With Care by Jodi Picoult because this book is based on the struggles of a family who have a child with a medical condition called Osteogenesis Imperfect (Brittle Bones). This is the same condition that I have and my family went through nearly the exact same thing as in this book.

What is your favourite genre to read and your favourite book from it?

I have a few favourite genres but I would say Horror would be my all time favourite and I own the most books from this genre.

I would say my favourite book from this genre would have to be IT by Stephen King. It’s only the 2nd book on my shelves that I’ve read twice.

What are your top tips/tricks for fitting reading around a busy schedule?

Take a book with you everywhere, doesn’t matter what format because you never know where you might get a few minutes to squeeze in some reading. But if you’re like me and can’t read while in a moving vehicle including trains then download an audiobook because I guarantee you can listen to some of your books even with the busiest schedule.

What are your top tips/tricks for writing your own work?

I personally don’t do it, but I really admire anyone who can write their own stories.

What are you reading now? What have you just finished? Are you enjoying/did you enjoy it.

At present  (while answering this question) I’m reading This Lie Will Kill You by Chelsea Pitcher. So far I’m really enjoying it. I’m also reading The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton. The beginning of this book is very slow and I felt like giving up, but it seems to be getting a little better. Hopefully by the time I get to the end of it will enjoy it.

If you like the sound of Mani and all of the exciting things they post you can find them over on Twitter as well as on their main blog.

I hope you guys are enjoying reading this month’s series of posts as much as I’ve loved organising and collaborating with so many amazing bloggers to create them! 💖 Check back tomorrow! x

  1. It’s so nice to get to know Mani! I don’t know why I hadn’t come across her blog before but following her now. And I completely agree with the choice of book, Handle With Care is such a beautiful and emotional read.
