This is a weekly feature I have decided to start this year. It will include the books I read in the past week and my thoughts on current book trends and topics (including movies/series based on books) and the books I want to read. I also want to talk about what other book bloggers are sharing or their opinion on anything bookish. I just felt like as a book community it will be nice for everyone to gather around once in a while and share what they love so much – books!
So the first thing I wanna talk about is the basics. Why do you blog? Especially in today’s day and age where everyone is practically glued to their mobile/iPad screens, what makes you want to take the time out to read and even blog about it?
When I first started blogging or writing more specifically, it was cathartic. I had some other blogs earlier, in fact long ago I had started a book blog on blogspot when internet was just beginning to get better (before Jio!) and I felt like blogging. But I was too young to stick to it.
After years suddenly I find myself wanting to blog again and what better than books to blog about. It helps me make sure I read as well as keep a memory of it safe and most importantly, catalogued.
Patience is something I am ‘losing’ more and more as I grow up, in a way that I don’t waste time on something I am not interested in where as earlier you lie to yourself so you don’t have to face it.
It applies to me wanting to write too. It helps me maintain my language as well. And its nice to share it with other book lovers too. The community as a whole keeps the passion alive.
I wanna stop by concluding the books I read last week. Am still leaning more towards Thriller/Mystery/Suspense Genre, but I have also started reading The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell. So far am a bit disappointed but I have not given up. I brought the book during a heavy discount on Amazon and it truly is a beauty. Am definitely giving it a chance.
Do share your thoughts!
