Ok, raise your hand if you’ve had a book on your shelf for YEARS you’ve been promising yourself will be your next read, and never picked up? Yeah, me too. I am the worst for buying a book I can’t wait to read, and then for some reason completely ignoring it.It’s got to stop, because I’ve been missing out on some amazing books I know people love. So why can’t I pick them up?
National Stationery (that’s with an E) Week, was at the start of May, and it’s a celebration of one of my favourite things – notebooks. One of my prized possessions is my reading journal, and I’ve gone through quite a few of them. Since I’m going to start a new journal in the next few weeks, it feels like now is the perfect time to take you on a little tour of my upcoming journal, the one I’ve just finished, and how I lay them out.
I may have been blogging about books for almost seven years, but I’ve been reading a lot longer than that. There are a couple of books I met before I started blogging at all, but because they were books I read when I was younger I’ve never reviewed them here. I do aim to one day give them a full review here, but it’s nice to have a think back to where it all began for me.
I’ve had to dig deep into my past to look at some of my favourites from my pre blogging days. If you’re looking to turn back time a little with your reading habits, these would be a great place to start in my opinion. I’ve included a mix of the different genres I love reading, so hopefullly there’s something in there for everyone.
For a book blogger, I can be pretty poor at sharing what books I’ve got. That’s something I really need to change in 2019, and I aim to start it now.
Yes, I’m very aware those are famous last words. Especially since it’s something I promised before. Hopefully, this time I will actually keep to my word. Mainly because when I see how many books there are here, I’ll be spurred on to do this a lot more often.
June is always a pretty good month for me when it comes to books, because June is my birthday month. I like to treat myself a little to some titles I’ve been looking forward to with a while. It’s also a time for me to sit and try to put together a reading list for the rest of the year. One I know I will never stick to, of course.
