One of the best parts about running this blog is having the ability to meet some really cool people, and some of the coolest people that I have met have led me to really cool blogs. I’ve said it before, no one’s blog is 100% original but everyone’s voices are different so there are blogs that I love to read because I love the writer, and I love the passion that they show for what they are writing. They are fun and interesting to read and they inspire me to get better and better in my blog.
So I decided to do a feature (inspired by Megan at the Nerdy Girlie’s Geek Girls Gab), where I profile the bloggers that I love. Not only do I get to find out more about them, but I also get to share them with you guys! Most of the bloggers that I follow are like me, nerd girls, fan girls and they enjoy the same things as me, and you! Every blogger that I profile is one that is super important to me and I urge you to check them out!
If you are interested in being featured on the Blogger Spotlight, feel free to contact me, please! I would love to hear from you, to feature you on the blog and to help spread the word about it!

Sara: Tell me a Little Bit About Yourself:
Daisy: I’m Daisy, 19, from England and a huge book nerd! And am also a tv and film fanatic. I am one of those crafty warriors and do create fandom crafts. My room is slowly being turned in to the land of book crafts. I’m a proud godmother to two, although not the magical wish granting kind sadly!
I’ve not long been in the fangirling world, I joined up to YouTube to discuss books in March and from there on went to create twitters and finally my website. Fangirling is a full time occupation to keep up with and thankfully I have the time for it.
Sara: Tell me about your blog:
Daisy: Fangirl Daily is pretty much in the title. I generally end up fangirling over something each day and thought “Hey, why not have a collective of all these things I fangirl over?” and bam. It was created! It’s a multi-fandomed site, although I stick mostly to books and movie adaptations I still fangirl over things like a new Thor trailer.
There isn’t too many restrictions! I love hunting out interviews that cast members, authors, directors ect have done, new stills, trailers and generally fangirl-y news. As I write this news of J.K. Rowling’s spin off of Harry Potter is out and man am I fangirling over that.
I also like to post book reviews, or even my videos where I discuss books galore.
Sara: What inspired you to start your blog?
Daisy: I’ve helped a lot with fansites over the past couple of months but have never really owned one myself. It took a lot of asking friends and family if it was a good idea to venture in to the fandom world alone but I am so happy that I did. I love finding news and always have this intrigue – I wanted to help other people be able to find the news quick and easy rather than search for hours.
Sara: What is your favorite nerd memory?
Daisy: Definitely has to be hands down Jamie Campbell Bower singing two songs at an event in London in July. That is my nerdy fangirling ‘oh my god it’s the voice of an angel’ moment. It coincides with meeting Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan too – was so excited that day!
Sara: What are you most looking forward to, as far as new books/movies/etc?
Daisy: I’m off to see James Dashner when he comes to the UK in December and hopefully seeing Sarah Rees Brennan and Holly Black at some point. As for books and movies, Champion by Marie Lu, Allegiant by Veronica Roth and City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. Cannot wait for those! I’m super pumped for Catching Fire, Vampire Academy, The Maze Runner (which both come out two days before my birthday, brilliant gift!) and Divergent. Lots of exciting things to come!
Sara: As my blog is mostly about books and reading, what are some of your favorite books or authors to read?
Daisy: I really love the Harry Potter series – huge Potterhead. But I also love both Cassandra Clare’s series, Divergent by Veronica Roth and The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins. I have a soft spot for Sarah Rees Brennans novels as they are always a pick me up when you want a book with some hilarity!
Sara: What are some of your favorite blogs to follow?
Daisy: There are so many, but ones I mostly go to are: Fandom News and British Nephilim (although both of these I do help out on, I still check reguarly). Also, Total Teen Fiction (my parabatai runs that!), Page to Premiere, TMI Source, FanGirlFeeels, Club Fandemonium, Mundie Moms, and HG Girl on Fire. I’m sure there are more on the list though.
Sara: Who is your fictional crush (what, we’re nerd girls, we all have one!)
Daisy: Will Herondale for sure. I couldn’t not put him down! Augustus Waters, Dimitri Belikov, Peeta Mellark and Ron Weasley because.. well he’s just hilarious. And I love someone with a sense of humour. I do end up crushing on so many – most books this year I’ve read I would happily take them on as a fictional boyfriend.
Sara: Do you have any fandom/nerd-related tattoos at all? Please share them!
Daisy: Not yet sadly! Next year though I will be getting ‘Life is a book and there are a thousand pages I have not yet read.’ Looking forward to it, just not the pain hah.
