Blogger Interview with Riddhi from Whispering Stories

Hello, everyone!! So, today I’m doing something a little different. On Riddhi’s blog called Whispering Stories, she wished to do something fun and interactive with her fellow comrades, or bloggers. Well, she certainly accomplished her vision! Not to mention many other things she has done on her blog. She is a very passionate, intelligent, young lady with a great blog! Her content includes serious discussions concerning rape and other grave and important subjects, blog reviews, book tags, and other fun tags and stuff. You should definitely go check out her blog!!

So, what she chose to do was create a blogger interview. So, she sent 15 questions to several bloggers who volunteered to be interviewed, we answered them, sent them back, and now we and Riddhi will be posting the results on each of our blogs. Today Riddhi posted mine and Namrata@RedPillow‘s interviews. Thank you, Riddhi, for taking the time and putting in the effort to do something like this!

The Interview

Riddhi: So, Millay, tell me something about yourself.

Millay: I’m a Christian woman who loves God, my family, books, and music. Among other things. A quote that I find really sums me up is, “I’m the girl who is always there for people when they need a friend. I’m also the girl who faces many issues alone but will do ANYTHING to see someone smile.” I don’t know who coined this quote, however. 😉

Riddhi: Oh that’s interesting. Why did you start blogging?

Millay: I started my book blog not very long ago, but have been having a lot of fun reviewing/recommending books, doing book tags, and connecting with other book worms on the blogosphere. My reviews mostly consist of YA and middle-grade books, although you can also find a few non-fictional adult books. I started my blog to recommend good (or bad books) to all kinds of people. With this ever-changing world it can be hard to find quality, clean, and entertaining literature for not only adults but children too.

Riddhi: That’s so true! So, what motivates you to continue blogging?

Millay: My love of books and my need to share my thoughts about them.

Riddhi: Ah, I see. Why do you blog about books?

Millay: Because I love discussing and sharing my thoughts about them with others.

Riddhi: Oh, spoken like a true bookworm! What’s your least favorite thing about having a blog?

Millay: The social interaction

Riddhi: *laughs nervously, cause I have commented on her blog many times* I will, uh, keep that in mind. Do you read? What are your favorite books?

Millay: Duh. 😉 There are WAY too many to count!!!

Riddhi: Oh okay. What is your favorite genre? Why?

Millay:  Historical fiction and fantasy…they are vastly different from each other, though. I love historical fiction for its historic value because I love learning about the past! I love fantasy for it takes me to places that are so wonderful that I’d otherwise never be able to experience.

Riddhi: Hmm… so do you listen to music? Who are your favourite artists?

Millay: Oh, gosh, I LOVE music! I listen to mostly Toby Mac, Owl City, Nicole Nordeman, and songs from movies like Frozen, Spirit, and The Hobbit. And of course Veggie Tales. 😉 Although I have a HUGE variety of music that I listen to.

Riddhi: Oh, I have heard one song of Owl City. And I love Frozen’s music too! So, what are your greatest strengths?

Millay: My greatest strength is Jesus. He turns my weakness into strengths so that He may use them to do His work. However, I do think that He gifted me with the trait of sensitivity. I know He gave it to me for a reason, and I hope He can use it in abundance.

Riddhi: That is indeed true. What are your pet peeves?

Millay: Oh, geez…there are quite a lot but my main two are messy rooms and the dish scrubber IN STAGNANT, DIRTY DISH WATER!!!!!

Riddhi: Oh dear, I nearly always have a messy room. As for the second one, it is truly ewww…. So, moving on to more pleasant topics- Dogs or Cats?

Millay: Cats. Although dogs are very close!! I love German Shepherds, tabby cats, and Munchkin cats.

Riddhi: Ah I am a doggo person. But tis okay. What are your hobbies, besides reading of course?

Millay: I like  writing, painting, playing piano and violin, gardening, and hanging out with my family.

Riddhi: Oh, that’s cool. I like painting too, although, I cannot do it very well. One good thing that happened to you in 2020?

Millay: A LOT of good things happened to me in 2020!! But I am very thankful for being reunited with a childhood friend.

Riddhi: Yay, that sounds awesome! So, who is your role model? Why?

Millay: Jesus, because he is perfect.

Me: I can’t say I haven’t been expecting that answer. So, lastly, some feedback for my blog?

Millay: I really think you should make the home page and the pull-down menu a little less cluttered. I also think you might want to divide your posts amongst a couple days instead of putting all of them in one lengthy post with an extremely long title.

Riddhi: Oh okay, I will note down the pull-down menu thing- I have been thinking of doing that too, honestly! Yeah, that is something I worked on! Hope you find the posts better now. I hope this was fun for you!

Millay: Oh yes, it was!


So, what’d ya think? Cool, right? If you want to jump on the bandwagon of blogger interviews, go pester Riddhi about it. You may just persuade her. 😉 (Sorry, Riddhi!)

What are some of your pet peeves? This is off topic, but, do you have any blogging tips for me and/or the readers? Feel free to leave them below.

Thanks for reading, you guys! God bless!

Ciao.

We aren’t called to be like other Christians; we are called to be like Christ.

    1. Thanks! That is really good advice, thanks! Okay, you asked for it. *cracks knuckles* The top historical fictional books I recommend are the Christian Heritage series by Nancy Rue. There are I think six separate series that follow the life a preteen boy in history. For example, there are the Salem years (Early America, Pilgrim, Plymouth, kinda time), The Williamsburg years set in the Revolutionary War time (my personal favorite)…etc, etc. They are really good!! I also recommend The War That Saved my Life by Kimberly Brubaker, In the Reign of Terror by G.A. Henty, (these are a little bit more “old English-y” and a BIT soporific, but definitely worth the read.), Remembrance by Theresea Breslin, Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, War Horse by Micheal Murpurgo….I should probably stop there, however. 😉
      Oh, I don’t think so ;)…Have you read The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson or The Weaver Trilogy by Lindsay A. Franklin. These are two little known, yet VERY, (I mean, EXTREMELY) good fantasy books!! Also, have you read The Lord of the Rings? Thank you for reading, Anushka! xoxo
