One of my favorite things to do on this blog is write Book Reviews.
I love reading books, always have, and remember my first obsession back when I was a kid. The Baby-Sitter Club. I bought all those books and read them religiously! Then the teenage years hit and reading fell by the wayside. (Remember Wayside school?! I loved that book!)
Other books have come across my eyes through the years, but I guess what reignited my love affair with books again was Harry Potter. And then The Twilight Saga.
Since then, I’ve been reading nonstop, when I get a chance of course, and then last year I discovered the world of Book Blogging and thought to myself, “I wanna share my love and knowledge of books with others so they can find books they’ll enjoy as well”. It’s a great feeling to be able to connect with someone over a book and I love when people tell me they read something because I recommended it. Pure joy!
I’ve written over 50 book reviews in the past year, done a bunch of In My Mailbox’s, and participated in a few book blogger memes. I have to say that the Book Blogging community isn’t as open or friendly as the Mommy Blogging community, probably because it’s more competitive, and it’s hard to find your place among the slew of top Book Bloggers out there, but I have hope I can make it someday. I have met some amazing and friendly book bloggers though, so I won’t speak for the whole community. Couple that with the fact that regardless, I’d still love to read and recommend, you can bet I won’t stop!
