5 questions with guest interview

Hi everyone! My name is Chloe, and I'm a 21 year old blogger from the West Midlands and creator behind @faithtrustandlotsofbooks and https://faithtrustandlotsofbooks.blogspot.com

I write book reviews and create lifestyle content, with a little bit of fashion and beauty sprinkled in here and there. I also recently graduated with a English literature and history degree, and aim to share my experiences of postgraduate life with my followers in a useful way. I love being a part of the online blogging community and am very grateful to Monique for asking me to do this Q&A :).  

1. If you were to compare trust to an object, what would it be and why?

If trust were an object, I would say it’s a chair, as it’s always got your back! It’s sturdy, supportive and reliable, which are all key components to trust. It can also offer support when you’re feeling weak or ill, which are all things a person you trust should be able to do. 

2. What’s your favourite thing about studying history?

For me, it feels like much more than studying just history. It’s studying philosophy, geography, politics, art. You are literally studying the way of the world and how it operates, the cause and effect of everything that has ever taken place. For me, it feels like studying something much bigger and important, and I feel it has given me a wider outlook on life and the way of the world. I also love that it is never ending and that there will always be something new for me to learn. 

3. What book do you recommend to people in their twenties?

If I’m honest, I don’t think I have come across the perfect book for people in their twenties. Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams is definitely a good one, as it follows a young woman in her mid-twenties as her life unravels and she has to find her way in the world, which I think a lot of us can relate to. However, I’m definitely still on the hunt for the perfect one and would love it if any of you reading this have any recommendations!  

4. If you could time travel, what era would you want to be in?

Deep down, I truly believe I was born in the wrong era. If I could time travel I would 100% visit Tudor England. To live amongst the glamour of Tudor court, along with all the drama and turmoil, would be amazing. Also, after studying the Tudor era at school, I think there were so many interesting and fascinating characters, not to mention 6 wives ;)

5. What consumes most of your time in a day? Do you consider it productive?

Along with my part time job, I also have my blog which consumes a lot of my time. I started blogging in August 2020 after finishing my degree, and it has always been something I have wanted to try. Also, after going from writing essays all day every day to nothing at all, I wanted to make sure I could keep my writing style and levels of productivity high, so I definitely feel like it’s productive.

Thank you all for taking the time to read this post and again, I want to give a huge thanks to Monique for asking me to take part in this series. Lots of love xoxo

Take care,
