Hey guys! This is the first time I’m writing a post that’s not a book review. It’s been almost four months that I started this blog and I wanted to write a personalized post so you can get to know me a bit better. First of all, thanks a lot for connecting with me! I’d love to interact with you and I’m always open to suggestions, comments, and feedback. So feel free to let me know what you think.
I’m just an average, introverted girl who was never much of a reader growing up. All I ever did was studying and doing well in school. But in my late teens, after I got into college, I found that I had a considerable amount of free time on my hands. Since I didn’t care much about socializing, I was on my own most of the times and it was then that I decided to read and see how I feel about it. The journey from being a non-reader to becoming a passionate reader was really amazing and I’m glad that I found my niche when life sort of happened.
After reading a few classics and some thrillers which I really enjoyed, I discovered YA books and my life has never been the same! It was a mind-blowing experience and something that actually made me fall in love with reading. Ever since then, I’ve read a lot of books from different genres and my reading tastes have changed a lot in recent times, but I still recall that time with so much fondness. It was then that I found a lot of comfort in the fictional world than the real one.
Coming to the topic at hand, I don’t think I’ve got any unique reasons to start this blog. The purpose behind this blog is to have a space that belongs to me where I can share my opinions, connect with the wonderful people and discover amazing content. So, here I am with my blog! I want to talk about all the wonderful books I read, a bit about myself and anything completely random. I also feel passionate about writing and that’s something I’m going to try in the future.
But there’s more! I wanted to have a concrete and productive hobby (besides reading), something in which I could invest my time in a better way and teach myself self-discipline by sticking to it for the long term. And, blogging seems to not only be a constructive hobby, but also a really fun activity! And, ever since I started writing book reviews, I realized I paid more attention to the book I’m reading. It also made me selective about the books that I want to read. Earlier I was a sucker for really amazing stories but now I try to keep up a balance between reading for fun and reading books that add value to my life.
Lastly, I wanted to start blogging for a really long time but I never felt like that was the right time for it. I’d always have excuses stacked in front of me like I don’t have time, I don’t know how to do it, I don’t know what to do, Why would people even read what I wrote?… and the list goes on. But I felt like if I don’t do it now, I’ll never get it done like ever! Besides, I love books so much that I want to talk about all the good ones that made my day and gave me something valuable to cherish in my life.
Hope you have a great year and Happy Reading!
