My Purpose for Blogging
Will you believe if I said that I didn’t always have a love for books? I really actually started reading when I was around 12, and I think the books that first got me into the whole blogging world were the Tiger’s Curse series by Colleen Houck and The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. Those were one of my first reviews, and I created a blog just for the fun of it—I didn’t know a whole bookish community existed!
Now, I blog because I want to share my feelings on books and how I like them and all about the feels! Blogging doesn’t really come naturally yet, but I hope to make a lot of friends (and I already have) because what is more fun than reading and sharing that love of books with your bookish friends? Around the whole world! So I guess my purpose for blogging is the awesome things that come with it—not the followers, ARCs, although those are a great bonus!—but the fun we have and the great community that we belong to is definitely worth it. And what’s the point of reading if you can’t talk about it?
And the nominees are…
Thank you everyone!
