Recently i wrote a post about things that i’d wish i’d known before i started blogging. It’s HERE if you want to give it a read. But i’ve been thinking a lot about blogging recently. Not about posts (sadly) but about the act of blogging.
Love, Hate & Other Filters is a book that’s been on my radar for quite some time. I spent a lot of time being jealous of people in the U.S. that were getting the release before us, and anticipated the U.K. release for a long time. I started to read it pretty soon after its U.K. release.
After a lot of preparation and a lot of promotion (I know you’re all probably so sick of us by now) we managed to finally have our first night of book club! It took a while to get it up and running and in the end we had to change the first night due to the mass amount of snow in Manchester, but it happened.
There has been a lot of talk online at the moment about blogging, the community and how we all treat each other, along with the amount of work bloggers seem to put in that no-one is aware of. I wanted to talk about what i’d known before i started blogging for today’s post.
I want to start a little series of some kind on the blog about bookish things that have made me happy in the last month. I use the Twitter account a lot to talk about bookish related things that have made me pretty happy, but i never talk about it on the blog.
After my average reading month in January i really wanted to pick up the pace a little in Feburary and start meeting my reading challenge targets. Sadly that’s not really happened. I’ve read enough to make me feel as though i’ve been productive, but not enough to make me hit those targets. I’m using my birthday and a holiday as a definite excuse for this behaviour. Next month i’ll have to read plenty of short books i think!
It has taken me an incredibly long time to pick up this book, and i couldn’t have picked it up without prompt, admittedly. Never Let Me Go was the first in my line of ‘my friends favourite books’ i’m going to read this year, and i’m really glad i started this challenge!
