Hello Jacqueline. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Hi! My name is Jacqueline, otherwise known as The Pufflehuffle Kitteh, a disabled book blogger/instagrammer from the UK. I’m 25 on October 18th, and autumn is my favourite season. My hobbies aren’t all the interesting to be honest, I live and breathe books. I read, draw (sometimes), sew and care for my two kitties.

Why did you decide to start a blog/ bookstagram?

As someone who was reviewing in different places such as Goodreads and Amazon anyways, I felt it was only natural to start up a blog to store all my reviews and thoughts in one place. I actually started on Instagram as a personal account, but it was pretty much all books with the odd personal dotted in. Then I stumbled across Bookstagram and fell in love. That was a few years ago. I haven’t looked back since.

What is the weirdest place you have ever read a book?

Uhm, probably in a tent in the middle of a field when I was healthy enough to volunteer at sci-fi events and comic cons. I was taking a short lunch break from working with the guest I was assigned at the time.

What is the weirdest place you have taken a book pic?

Not really weird, but probably the end of the local harbour. It’s beautiful out there.

Favourite quote?

There’s a few out there, but one of them is

You could rattle the stars. You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down you know it to. That’s what scares you most.

This quote always helps me feel better when my mental health is at its lowest.

Hello Camille, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Hello! My name is Patricia Camille, although online I just go by Camillea. As a bookworm I love reading the classics, dark fantasy, crime, and historical fiction. I’m quite the music lover! I’m a softie for jazz and the blues. I write a lot of poetry. Oh, I’m also working on a novel based on Philippines mythology. My birthday is on the 19th, which I am so not ready for!

Why did you decide to start a blog/ bookstagram?

I love creating! I started my book blog not only because I wanted to talk about books but I also wanted to have a platform for my advocacy – mental health, and feminism specifically support for abuse survivors. I love being able to talk openly about my own struggles, promote wellness, & provide my readers a safe place in our virtual world.

What is the weirdest place you have ever read a book?

I’m not so sure. I always carry a book wherever I go but haven’t minded where I read.

What is the weirdest place you have taken a book pic?

Does a rooftop count as weird? Yeah, it was a very hot day but I’m so glad I did it because the picture that came out was amazing.

Favourite quote?

“I can live alone, if self-respect, and circumstances require me so to do. I need not sell my soul to buy bliss. I have an inward treasure born with me, which can keep me alive if all extraneous delights should be withheld, or offered only at a price I cannot afford to give.” – Charlotte Bronte
