Interview with Ella Bianchi

Hello Guys!

As a newbie author, you go through the process of using every possible avenue to get your book read. I did something similar. I posted all over the shore about The Wreck of Our Hearts .

I had given up on anyone approaching me when suddenly I received a message from Ella on Goodreads.

She is actually the first person who read and reviewed my book. I was so glad she liked it and was incredibly honest.

She’s recently started a blog… Let’s get to know her.

*********************************************************

Who’s behind the keyboard? Tell us a bit about yourself.

My name is Ella Bianchi and I currently reside in the great state of Illinois. I live with my parents, older brother, Guinea Pig Hazel, and Betta Fish Skylar (Skylar honestly might not be the original name I gave him, but if it wasn’t, Skylar is his name now, only because I forgot was his original name was and because I said so). Aside from reading and blogging, of course, I love to write and I also love theatre, as well. Music and weather are two huge things that interest me.

Which book made you decide that you wanted to start blogging about books?

Adultolescence by Gabbie Hanna

Do you have a personal TBR list, apart from review requests? If yes, what book are you most excited to read this year?

One I am very excited to read is If They Come For Us by Fatimah Asghar, which I actually won a print copy of in a Goodreads Giveaway, so I’ll be able to read it before the release date.

When blogging, what are your must haves?

My must haves when I’m blogging are music, because I literally can’t do anything without music in the background or me humming, or singing, a song, along with a bag of chips, because I have a probably unhealthy obsession with Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream potato chips.

What is the hardest thing you’ve had to say about a book?

I don’t have an answer for this one. Since every review I write is 100% honest, I’m not scared to write anything. Not every book is for everyone, my friends.

***True story!!!***

What is one thing you wish authors knew/understood about blogging?

Being a blogger is a difficult thing to do as it is hard to maintain a blog. That being said, I don’t like when authors go around asking bloggers to promote their works. I know that they have to do it, but I like it better when an author puts out an offer for promotion and bloggers ask to be apart of it.

What is your all-time favorite book?

As weird as this is, I seriously love the book Gray by Pete Wentz. And yes, that is the same Pete Wentz that is the lead singer of the band Fall Out Boy.

Who is your go-to author when you’re stuck in a book funk?

Ellen Hopkins. Even though I give her books relatively low ratings, I seriously love her books.

Your favorite genre? Why?

My favorite genre is anything that has to do with topics such as mental health, suicide, etc. as it is something that interests me and that I have always found fascinating to read about.

What are your top 3 movies (adaptations of books or other)?

The High School Musical Trilogy (count that as one, even though it’s technically three), A Christmas Story, and The Cat in the Hat. God, my choices could not have gotten more random than that.

What are your top 3 TV series (adaptations of books or other)?

iCarly, Boy Meets World, and Hannah Montana. Wow, I’m trash.

If you had ten seconds before your house went up into flames, what would you grab?

The photo I have of meet and greet picture with Sabrina Carpenter at Show of the Summer last year since that day made me the happiest person.

Name one item on your bucket list?

To go to Hawaii.

Favorite song that you’re jammin’ to right now?

Say Amen (Saturday Night) by Panic! At The Disco. They’re one of my favorite bands and Say Amen (Saturday Night) is one of my favorite songs by them, hands down.

A book you secretly wish can be a movie/tv series and who would play the main leads?

I seriously have NO answer for this one whatsoever. I have NO idea what books would be a good movie or tv adaptation and I have NO idea who would play the main roles since I watch virtually NO tv shows or movies.

If you had aspiring blogger advice, what would it be?

Promote your blog on your Goodreads, Twitter, etc., sign up to be a host for a blog tour, do giveaways, anything to get your blog out there!

FINAL TASK: Review yourself in twenty words

I’m not the best, but I like to think I am kind and a hard-worker, not to mention funny.
