Blogger Positivity: Pt 1

Without further ado, here is my introduction post to help celebrate the start of the event!

Introduce yourself and your blog!

My name is Zoe, and I am the blogger behind Stories on Stage (I hear numerous duhs going through the crowd).

Where do you blog from?

Beautiful, sunny California!

Who or what made you the reader you are today?

My mom is a huge reader, and growing up she encouraged me to read a lot. My teachers in school also helped install a love of reading in me as well.

Who or what made you decide to create a book blog?

I started out reviewing books on Goodreads, and I noticed that a lot of Goodreads users had blogs. Blogging sounded really fun, so I decided to start my own blog.

What are your thoughts on the blogosphere today?

I really think the book blogosphere, for the most part, is one of the most supportive and giving communities on the internet. Everyone I have met throughout my book blogging journey is kind and supportive, and it’s great to be able to talk about books with people who share my interest for them.

5 random facts about you?

  1. My favorite musical is Sound of Music.
  2. I have two younger sisters.
  3. I am currently in a production of Annie.
  4. I love to smile.
  5. I have a huge sweet tooth.

5 favorite books you’ve read and loved?

(Yes, I know that’s 6 books, but I couldn’t help myself).

5 favorite book bloggers!

That’s a wrap! Check back on November 20th, for Part 2!

  1. It’s lovely meeting you, Zoe! This is my first time visiting your blog, and I love your design here. That’s awesome that you’re in a production of Annie – hope you’re having a good time with it! I actually have only read The Hunger Games out of the six books you listed, though I have seen the movie versions of The Giver and Percy Jackson. I’m determined to get to the books one day! Anyway, great introduction, and I will definitely be checking back for part 2 😀

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet words Cilla! ♥ Definitely check out the book versions of The Giver and Percy Jackson. You won’t regret it.

    1. Thanks Charlene! And it’s not a very long run – just two weekends, and I’m playing a featured dancer and part of FDR’s cabinet. 🙂

  2. I love Flipped as well (such a classic in my childhood) and it is super cool that you are so into theatre! My favorite musical of all time is Les Miserables, but Sound of Music is definitely up there! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Seems like most of us started blogging thanks to Goodreads! 😀
    I’m curious as to who you are playing in Annie (Grace Farrell?)? I haven’t watched Sound of Music yet. I know, I know. *hangs head in shame*
    Eeep! Tiger Lily-That one’s on my wishlist. It was a pleasure ‘meeting’ you, Zoe. 🙂

    1. Goodreads is amazing, isn’t it? xD
      I’m playing a featured dancer and part of FDR’s cabinet. 🙂
      Definitely get a copy of Tiger Lily. It is absolutely exquisite. Thank you Nuzaifa! ♥

  4. The Percy Jackson and The Hunger Games series… Plus you love sweets as well! Are we, like, secretly blood-related or something?!??

    I also hope everything goes well with your production! Being in one sounds like so much fun.

    Thank you for checking out my own BPC post! 🙂

  5. What a fun event! I was also encouraged to read by my parents, especially my mother. I think most of us started our ‘review career’ on Goodreads! Tiger Lily is the best, I have so much love for that book. You’ve listed 5 of my favorite bloggers too 😀

    1. I’m so happy you joined in too Rebecca! ♥ So glad to find someone who loves Sound of Music and sweets too! 😉 Thank you!

  6. Yayy, it’s nice to learn more about you, Zoe! I’ve only read Dangerous Girls and The Hunger Games from your list of favourite books…. I really must read more of them! Especially something by Rick Riordan since I somehow missed that stage. And The Sound of Music is my favourite musical too! I know alll the songs (at least I like to think I know all the songs) and I must watch the movie again soon…

  7. AWWWW. *SNIFFLES HAPPILY* I’M HONOURED, ZOE. <3 You are one of my total favourite bloggers tooooo!! *shares all the cake with you* And honestly your top 6 books didn't surprise me at all. 😉 And what's better is I LOVE THEM A LOT TOO.

    1. **hugs** How could I not put you on there Cait?!? Haha. And LOL – that’s awfully shocking that you like the same 6 books as I do. It’s not like we’re twins or anything. 😉

  8. Yay Zoe! I love your answers <3 I have a huge sweet tooth as well, and it often scares me how I eat too much sweets because you know, diabetes. I don't want that lol. I also loved Dangerous Girls as well! One of my new favorite YA books ever!

    Thanks so much for participating, and I really appreciate it 🙂 Looking forward to all Friday BPC posts!!

    1. Sweet toothers (yes, that is now a word) unite! xD And Dangerous Girls is just incredible, isn’t it?! And of course I participated Jillian – how could I not?! This is such an amazing event. Thank you so much for setting it up. ♥

  9. That’s so cool that you’re in Annie right now! Hehe smiles are so awesome, aren’t they? 🙂 Pretty much make the world go round.
    Dang, we’re in total opposite sides of the country! It must be nice in California during this time.

  10. I would love to visit the beautiful and sunny California just to give you a biiiig hug, Zoe, for making me so elated to be included in your favorite book bloggers 😉 ALSO, WASN’T THE GIVER FANTASTIC? I liked it the best among the four books in the series. Reading it and the ending gave me goosebumps!

Thanks for sharing this with us!
