BB: Hi Sophie! For any of our readers who haven't yet discovered your blog The Ombré Diaries could you tell us a little bit more about the girl behind the blog?

Hello! My name is Sophie (as you probably know), I'm 12 years old and I am the founder of The Ombré Diaries book blog. I absolutely love historical fiction, contemporary and a little romance.

BB: You're fairly new to the book blogging world, what made you decide to start a blog and what has been the biggest challenge so far?

Well it was actually my best friend Erika from The Red Bookmark who told me I should start my own blog since I love to read. I'm glad I did, as I've realised how much I love blogging about books! There hasn't been very many 'big challenges', the biggest I can think of is probably choosing my blog name, and making sure you guys always have a new post to read!

BB: Do you have any reading goals for 2015?

I'm actually doing the Goodreads 2015 reading challenge. I've chosen to try and read 100 books. I know it's a lot, but I just seem to eat my way through books, and before you know it, you're out of things to read!

BB: You recently posted about the books you wish were made into movies. What are your favourite existing adaptations?

I'm going to say The Hunger Games. To be honest, I much preferred the books, I watched the film before them, but I was disappointed at how much they missed out from the books to put in the films. I understand that they can't put everything in the films otherwise they would be too long. I'm just saying I preferred the books.


BB: We're always looking for new books to read, which 3 series would you recommend everyone should pick up?

The Hunger Games (definitely), the Secrets and Spies series by Jo MacAuley and the Firelight series by Sophie Jordan.

BB: Just for fun, if you could switch lives with any fictional character for just one day who would you choose and why?

Ooh this is a good one! A hard question - but a good one. Probably Hermione Granger. She's super clever, keen for school... but best of all, she gets to do magic and fly on broomsticks!

BB: Finally, we would love some recommendations, which book blogs are your favourites to read?

There are quite a few that I like to read, my 3 favourite are:

What She Reads
The Red Bookmark
It Was Lovely Reading You

I have so many more, but I'm pretty sure It would take too long to name them all. A Blogger's Bookshelf is on my list too!
