A Exclusive Conversation with Narrator Imogen Church
Imogen is an award-winning actress and writer. She is best known for her voice work and has narrated hundreds of audiobooks as well as starring in audio dramas and being the voice of The Harry Potter Quiz on Alexa UK and The Wizarding World Quiz in the US. Imogen’s debut novel ‘Death and the Burlesque Maiden’ – inspired by her past life as a burlesque dancer and performance poet - will be out on Audible Originals in early 2021. Imogen is tall, fairly weird, has tattoos and happily does not fit into any recognizable box in the entertainment industry.
Imogen Church has narrated ONE BY ONE, but also many more of Ruth Ware’s audiobooks, several of which have made their way onto AudioFile’s list of Best Audiobooks in the past, including THE WOMAN IN CABIN 10 and THE DEATH OF MRS. WESTAWAY.
Sooo....yea, an actual blog post. One that isn't a book review or a podcast. Strange times! I hate to admit, but I have neglected the "blogging" part of blogging over the last year or so. With the focus on the Shelf Addiction podcast (which will continue) and social media (I LOVE Instagram), I have let my personalized style of blog posts sort of drop by the wayside. I'd like to get back into the grove of sharing my own recommendations, ideas, and more here on the blog!
How will I do it? I decided to take part in Blogtober. I've taken a few topic ideas from various blogger idea lists as well as incorporated my own ideas. Some posts will be longer, and some shorter. Most of it will be book related, but I hope to add some personal things as well. In addition to my regular posting schedule, the goal is to post something every day specifically for Blogtober.
My hope is that this reignites my creativity and will motivate me to write daily on this blog for the entire month! With that said, I hope this will also keep me motivated to continue writing here on a regular basis.
If you don't follow the blog regularly, you should! October will be a month to remember. If you're team-blog, then you'll really enjoy this month! If you have a specific topic that you'd like me to cover, leave a comment below. Wish me luck!
It's been on my mind to do another casual podcast episode. Today I'm going to fill you in with what I'm up to and just share some tips. Most of the world has been in either quarantine or under a stay at home order for a while now. Personally this is my 8th week staying at home. Covid-19 has effected so many of us on in a lot of ways. Some are gaining what has been dubbed the Quarantine 15! Some have been taking special care of their mental state because being away from friends, family and people in general has been a struggle, some have been faced with loss of friends and family.
Check out this 10 minute episode where I share 5 tips to help you keep reading and 3 additional tips to keep you chill and stress free.
After taking a few weeks off at the start of 2020, I'm back and ready to read and podcast! Check out today's Book Chat episode where I share my 2020 reading goals and find out what's new for the Shelf Addiction community this year.
