Interview: @Cityofdeja, Bookstagram writer


Tell Us A Little about You and your Bookstagram account? 

@Cityofdeja: My name is Deja. I’m a 19 year old college student from Texas with a knack for reading and collecting. Cityofdeja is my happy place on Instagram where I can talk about books all day and interact with other book lovers! I started my account in late 2014 when I got my first DSLR camera. I’d been following a few bookstagram accounts, and had spent the entire summer reading A LOT. Taking pictures of books just felt like the next step since I had just picked up photography as a hobby. And the rest is history. 

What Books Are On Your summer reading list?
@Cityofdeja: I Wanna Be Where You Are by Kristina Forest, On The Come Up by Angie Thomas, and The Bride Test by Helen Hoang. 

How many books do you read in a year? 

@Cityofdeja: On average, I read about 40 books a year. 

What is your All Time Favorite Book? 

@Cityofdeja: Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I read this book for the first time when I was about 14 and it has stayed my favorite book since then. Anna and the French Kiss is a Young Adult contemporary romance set in Paris and Paris had been my dream city forever, so this book was perfect for me. A few years back, I was actually able to visit Paris and some of the spots mentioned in the book, so it truly was a dream come true.  

Who is Your Favorite Author? 

@Cityofdeja: Helen Hoang is a new favorite author of mine. She’s new to the scene, as she only published her first book, The Kiss Quotient, last year. The stories she writes are so authentic and heartwarming. Her books are romances and in her first two novels, both main characters have autism. I can’t wait to read more of her books in the future! 
