Cornelia está fascinada por el creciente número de blogueros que escriben sobre libros y por la pasión y creatividad que ponen en ello. Y como ella misma es una devoralibros y ha escrito igualmente historias sobre el amor por los ellos, hemos habilitado una esquina para los blogueros que haya entre vosotros (y, por supuesto, para cualquiera que esté interesado en el tema.

Los blogueros pueden presentar su página, intercambiar informaciones con otros colegas... y los "no-blogueros" seguramente encontrarán ideas o querrán plantear preguntas sobre algún contenido. Podéis mandar enlaces a blogs (propios, o de otros que os parezcan merecedores de especial atención), así como preguntas, anécdotas e historias de cualquier tipo que giren en torno al mundo de los blogs de libros, a la siguiente dirección: mail@corneliafunke.com

¡A ver cómo crece todo esto!

Gee from UK: "This blog was originally called 'Books and Writers JNR', as it started out as a YA reviews version of 'Books and Writers', my dad’s old blog. The name was changed to 'The Bibliomaniac' in February 2014, and I finally switched to this current domain name at the end of 2015."

¿Desde cuándo tienes este blog?

I started my book blog in 2011, and I wasn't on social media such as Twitter then (given that I was eleven!), but from around 2013/14 onwards I started to blog regularly and with a more committed attitude, sharing my posts online. You'll find book reviews, graphics, discussions and more. Enjoy!

¿Por qué escribes sobre libros?

At the time, my dad was reviewing (older, crime) fiction for publishers, and occasionally he would be sent a YA title which he would let me review myself. I loved the idea of finding people online to share my love for reading with, and over the years I've loved keeping this blog up to maintain my bookish hobby throughout school, and also improve my writing by making regular posts.

¿Qué pregunta te gustaría plantearle a un autor durante una entrevista?

It would probably vary based on the author, but most of the time I'm very interested in knowing how their writing process works. I love to see how writers approach their work differently - planning, not planning, researching, creating worlds - as I really enjoy finding out how people create things.

Whenever I get asked about my favourite books, I can't work out how to decide! I'll pick three of my favourite reads of 2016:"You Know Me Well" (David Levithan and Nina LaCour)

"Unboxed" (Non Pratt)

"As I Descended" (Robin Talley)

¿Qué libros de Cornelia has reseñado?

I read the Inkheart books before I started blogging, but I was gifted a copy of "Ghost Knight" years ago and reviewed it when I was 13!

Andrew from the UK: "The blog's aim is to be like a friend you meet up in a coffee morning, but the blog does several things: Book Review (formally known as GoodRead) - Basically book reviews. Whether that be book, audiobook or ebook.Books And Their Theme Songs - Books and Their Theme Songs is a a catch-up of all the music used in GoodReads reviews. This happens once every other month. I hope you enjoy this blog - a blog that, I hope, doesn't take itself too seriously. Imagine this as a friend who wants to makes you smile, laugh and get excited over books - good or bad..."

¿Por qué escribes sobre libros?

I started it by sheer fluke. I didn't realise till much later that I was writing a book blog. I did it to pass the time. When I started, I had become unemployed, was finding it very difficult to find a job and it was getting me down. To break the day up, I would read. Try and catch up on my neverending To Be Read (TBR) pile and, because I was chatting to other readers online, I just wrote my thoughts on my blog and didn’t think anything of it… till publishers and authors started chatting to me.

So, my main reason for starting a book blog was to keep me upbeat while job hunting.

¿Qué pregunta te gustaría plantearle a un autor durante una entrevista?

Ah, a tricky question to ask. Every author is different so each author would be ask different questions. Do you write to music? What was writing this story like? Why did you write this story? Why do you write?

But I always like asking what inspired them to write this story/series/etc? I can imagine each answer being so very different - it could be one small thing or several big things and the author just mixed them together like cake batter. So, I would ask what inspired this story?

Oh heck! The hardest question to ask a reader, let alone a book blogger. I have been thinking of this and I think I have narrowed it down to these three.

"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" by JK RowlingUntil very recently, I would have said Prisoner of Azkaban was my fave Harry Potter book, but I reread the series and I remembered how much I adore Goblet. I love the darkness, the foreboding, the unpredictably of the story and the characters, the shocking ending. And that first chapter… I love that first chapter!

"Sabriel" by Garth NixI discovered this while waiting for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. And I devoured this so fast that, whenever I feel low or in a reading slump, this is always the book I turn to. Strong female leads, snarky talking cat, Charter Magic and Free Magic, Dead things (that aren't zombies). This book is one of the only few books to my memory that had me fearing Sabriel's death a few chapters in. I remember going 'We have 300-odd pages left. She must live! SHE HAS TO LIVE!' and terrified that Garth Nix will pull the rug from under me.

"The Rest of Us Just Live Here" by Patrick NessThis third and final choice is the hardest to pick. I could have gone with so many books - "Bones to Ashes", "Mirror Dreams", "His Dark Materials", "Maggot Moon", "We Were Liars", "The Snow Child" to name a few - but this book was the last book I read in quite a while that consumed me. I read it within 3 days and I couldn't put it down. I was shocked over how much I missed this book when I finished and, for a good time afterwards, this would be the book I would recommend if anyone wanted new to read…

Anna from Estonia: "I am probably the first Russian-speaking children's book blogger who tries to do that - to write easy to understand and at the same time professional texts. I have big plans and dreams, I want to grow as a reader and blogger. Of course I want to write stories one day, too."

Summer 2016

¿Por qué escribes sobre libros?

I started a book blog because I was always interested in books since my childhood and read a lot. Last year I graduated from university with Bachelor degree in Slavic philology, my area was Russian literature. I always preferred books for children and young adults. So I kept reading them from time to time even when I wasn't a child anymore. Now I read only books for children for some time and it helps me with my depression. I like to write about them very much as well. So one day I just sat down and started a blog. I try to turn my reader's emotions into something professional. I make laconic, clear and I hope beautiful texts too, trying to escape philological snobbism though.

¿Qué pregunta te gustaría plantearle a un autor durante una entrevista?

It's very hard to pick one question I would ask any author. If this author was Cornelia, I definitely would ask why her Inkworld and Mirrorworld are so attractive, beautiful, desired - and horrible at the same time? Am I right when I think it's done on purpose? When you read her books you live in them and can't leave even after the book is finished. Her worlds are so real. Seems like it's not very hard to get there. But instead of doing that you think "well, but can I stand this pain and hopelessness*? They are like gambling games and it's very interesting. It is common of course when book worlds are dangerous to live in, but they are not like that.

Three of my favorite books are:

"Harry Potter" by J.K. Rowling

"The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt

"Doctor Zhivago" by Boris Pasternak
