Here are answers to a few of the questions we regularly get asked (FAQ = frequently asked questions). If you have any questions for us, we’d love to hear from you! You can simply write us a message via our Connect page.
Are those bookshelves for real?! Yup, that really is our bookwall! We love it. It's so colourful and gives us so much joy and inspiration. And very soon, we're going to run out of space!
Where do you get all the books you read? The majority of the books we read are our own. We often get books or book tokens for birthdays, Christmas or other special occasions. But we also borrow lots from our local library, which has the most amazing service and staff. Even during lockdown, they'd source books for us AND deliver them to our door!
Have you really read all those books on your shelves?
Absolutely! And more than once in most cases! If we run out of books, we just pick something off the shelf that we haven't read in a while.
Do you seriously write all the reviews yourselves? You betcha we do! Yeah, we read every book and write every review ourselves. Sometimes we need help with a word or grammar or something and then we ask our parents, but the review itself is all our own work. It's hard work, but we really enjoy it! Why not watch our Bookmonster Special, which we made to celebrate our first 100 subscribers? It explains the whole review process in a fun way, and shows lots of hilarious bloopers, too!
How long does it take you to write a review? It generally takes us an hour or two, sometimes a bit more. And then there's the filming ... if everything flows, it only takes two or three takes, but every now and then, one of our cats video-bombs us or a crow caws right outside the window, or the rooster next door decides to tell the neighbourhood it's the boss ... and then we have to start all over again! Why not watch our Bookmonster Special, which we made to celebrate our first 100 subscribers? It explains the whole review process in a fun way, and shows lots of hilarious bloopers, too!
