Hello lovely people! Today is a very hot day in Manchester (a true rarity) and I’m lucky enough to have a garden so I can sit out in the sun to read and write. We set up an Instagram for our blog around 18 months ago now and I am truly so glad we did. I personally really like Instagram the most out of all the social media platforms out there. I find it to be the most positive, which is heavily down to who you choose to follow, and I enjoy that is is so visual. I’ve been thinking a bit about bookstagram lately and wanted to write my thoughts down. Continue reading “My Relationship with Bookstagram”
I have been thinking a lot about this sentiment for a little while now. I’ve been a little overwhelmed with life in general (social media, a lot of things happening in my personal life etc) for some time, and it comes with the territory that reading is becoming a little overwhelming for me.
Big authors are constantly talked about on book blogs, Twitter accounts and YouTube, and there is very little room for some underrated but also known authors it seems. During Blogmas i want to highlight a few of the authors that i absolutely adore that i feel are incredibly underrated. The first one i would like to talk about is Kass Morgan.
A few weeks ago now i took another trip to London. I absolutely love the city and being from Manchester myself, it’s not too much different. Just a whole lot bigger. I wrote a post about my time at the Warner Bros. Studio Tour (again) that you can read HERE if you want to know what else i got up to while in the capital. However, i also wanted to talk about my favourite thing to do in London. Book shop!
I spent a lot of my teenage years centred around FanFiction. I was involved in a lot of different fanbases, that had massive followings online, i also loved to read and write, which all led to me spending hours and hours sat at a computer. FanFiction is a wonderful thing that’s grown and grown since i was a kid. It means even TV shows and bands that aren’t around can be carried on with FanFiction, along with current obsessions being escalated.
There is a lot of stigma attached to ‘popular’ books and should you read them or not? People love to hate others that chose to read the books in the charts. But in reality, there’s many reasons as to why you’d read a popular book. I for one will always choose to read popular books, there are reasons they’re popular! Now i’ve said ‘popular’ so many times, lets get to my reasons…
We all have our preferences when it comes to book buying. Whether you like to buy your books new and clean from a shop or you hunt for bargains in a charity shop or second hand store. We all have our own thoughts on how we like our books to look. Recently i have been acquiring books more and more from charity shops or second hand. Mainly because they are a lot cheaper to buy and it means i’m saving a little bit of money. This post is a bit of a chat about where we get our books and if it should matter if the spine is cracked or there are folds in the pages.
