BB: Hi Isha, welcome to Blogger's Bookshelf! For anyone who hasn't yet discovered Two Sisters Bloggin' could you tell us a little bit more about yourself?
Hey! I only started blogging recently so none of you probably know us yet. I'm Isha and I blog at Two Sisters Bloggin', which is literary & lifestyle blog. I'm from a little country called Ireland. I'm 18. A big sister. I love reading books with strong heroines and I love cooking and baking for people.
BB: Your blog is a collaboration between yourself & your younger sister. What made you want to start a blog together and what do you think are the benefits of working on it as a team?
My younger sister and I have a really close relationship. We fight a lot but we're basically best friends (even if we don't admit it) and we do most things together. We both wanted to start a blog, so we decided why not collaborate so we could make the experience even more fun? The benefits of working as a team is that we never run out of ideas. I have stuff I'm passionate that I could blog about and she can blog about the things she loves.
BB: If you had to list your favourite reads of the year so far which books would make the cut?
Why must you make choose favourites? That's cruel! But if I have to choose it would be Simon & the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. This was my first LGBT book so it'll hold a special place in my heart and The Wrath & the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh because her writing was just incredible and it was nice to get a taste of the Arabian culture. I definitely recommend both books if you haven't read them yet.
BB: On your blog's About page you mention that you love binge-watching TV shows (we do too!). Do you have any favourite shows that are based on books?
Yes, I watch too many TV shows it's surreal! Some shows that I watch that are based on books (not necessarily following the plot!) would be Grey's Anatomy, the 100, Pretty Little Liars and The Carrie Diaries.
BB: Just for fun, if you could swap lives for the day with any fictional character who would it be and why?
If I could swap lives with a fictional character for a day it would be Magnus Bane. He's sassy, funny, fabulous and loves glitter! He's basically what I aspire to be in life. Plus he's had so many adventures and known all these amazing people. He was friends with the amazing characters I love from The Infernal Devices and The Mortal Instruments.
BB: Finally, we're always looking for new book blogs to read, do you have any favourites?
My favourite book blogs are: reign of reignofbooks.tumblr.com, alexandra of twirlingpages.com and hazel of staybookish.net. Reign is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. She is a precious cinnamon roll plus she also make book edits. Alexandra's blog is so kawaii and her instagram is aesthetics. Hazel is so nice and helpful, as a new blogger I'm not yet familiar with codes and html and she's always patient with me when I'm asking questions.
