My first post as a book blogger...

Hi, there! My name is Sarah and this is my new book blog....yeah that's all I can think off.
If you want to know a bit more about me visit the About Me page at the top of your screen, I would really appreciate it because it took me a good hour of searching blogs and youtube tutorials to find out how to put it there!

So... where to start...this isn't my first time trying create a blog or website. I have had my far share of failed blogs and websites through the years..all 15 of them! Since about the age 9 or 10 I became interested in trying to create my own websites, and I did, I created lots, I don't even remember what about, just silly things, obviously none of them ever became hits with one or two page views in a week before I got bored and moved onto another project with the realization that I would never get hundreds of visitors to a blog by a 10 year old ranting on about Club Penguin or Disney Channel.

Well, I guess I could say that after a few years absence I am back again with new hope, new determination and because I am ever so slightly bored on this mid-term break....so I have created this book blog. I have only found out about book blogs as of recently, I actually don't know many as of yet but I am hoping that I can find a few blogging friends if I keep up with this blog and hopefully don't quit after a week or two...

I started a booktube channel before this book blog a few months back, I got to about 5 videos and realized it wasn't for me, I felt too awkward talking to a camera but I really did enjoy what I was talking to the camera about, BOOKS! So I am hoping that through this book blog I can achieve that same feeling of loving books and having people to discuss the books you love with, but instead of on Youtube...through typing on a book blog! 

At first, I stopped myself making this blog because of various excuses in my head, I could never make a blog, I am in exam year at school, I don't even know how to review books!, I will just quit the moment I start, I wont post enough so won't get any views.....but then I thought who cares if I don’t get lots of views, I can always learn to write reviews, true its exam year but you need a break from studying every now and then... and who cares how much you post, as long as I am having fun with it, right? Well that's the attitude I am having towards it for now anyway.

My plan for this blog is not fully developed as of yet, but that's ok! I think I am going to post twice a week, maybe Tuesdays and Fridays. I will do reviews, but also other posts...as I don't think I read fast enough to post a review every week...but that's fine! Once I am enjoying writing what I post!
I think that is all I have to write for now....If anyone is reading this feel free to comment and if you would like follow me on twitter and like the Facebook page...because once I know I have caught at least one persons attention then I have a reason to blog :) Until the next post, Bye!  - Sarah


  1. Hi!
    Good luck in the blogging community, I know it can be hard. I started my book review blog (Pagesforthoughts.blogspot.com) this summer. Here is a tip for blogging- don't second guess yourself, and always write a review from your heart. Most of all, have fun!!!
    Btw, I followed you on twitter :)
