Book Bloggers, hello there…
You may recognise the name of this blog from a certain other book lover community called BookTube! So, I just hit my 1 year BookTube Anniversary and decided to put blood, sweat and tears into making a video about it, which you can view below!
I then thought about the year and how much I really love making videos and connecting with the BookTube community. However I realised the sheer amount of the community I was missing out on when I noticed just how many book bloggers there are! And Hey Presto, here I am making my very own blog!
So here’s a bit of background to get you all up to speed…
Since I was a child i’ve been an avid reader, and it’s mainly down to seeing my Mum as a role model and someone to idolise. Therefore, I became a person who enjoys a good book, curled up in bed listening to the bad weather outside or in contrast, taking a book and some sunglasses into the garden for a bit of sunshine and stories. All because it’s what I saw my Mum doing as I grew up, and I am extremely grateful that she was such a big influence!
Fast forward to a year ago, I had just finished reading the ‘Fallen’ series by Lauren Kate and was really disappointed. I’m the type of person who feels like by the end of a good book or series you should feel like you or the characters have accomplished something and this series just really didn’t in my eyes. I finished reading like – I invested all that time into reading you and got nothing! It’s safe to say, I was pretty annoyed.
Anyway, why is this relevant to making a BookTube channel? Well, the majority of my friends and family are non-readers (…I know right, what’s wrong with them?!) The only major reader is my Mum and she isn’t really into the genres that I read, so I stick to my YA, Fantasy, Sci-Fi etc and she sticks to her Romance, Historical Fiction yadayadayada. So we have no books to discuss together, and I needed a major rant after reading the ‘Fallen’ series.
That’s enough for one post but stick around to hear more about what’s to come on The Book Moo!
