Starting a blog is a great undertaking. As summer comes to a close and I begin my senior year of college, I’m hoping that I can finally get this going. So let us begin. I am a book nut. I am completely obsessed. This summer, my mom and I finished renovating our home library so now is the time to let my book freak flag fly!
How bad is my book buying obsession? Well, my best friend and I have a book track that we do weekly if not twice a week: two or three Goodwills, two used book stores, a thrift shop, and a Salvation Army. And of course a trip to Krispy Kreme to finish it off! Last weekend I picked up 15 books on my track. Though I can’t afford new books right now, you wouldn’t believe how many brand new books show up at these places.
I am a collector as well as a reader. I have a few First Editions and UK or other foreign covers among my collection. Not for any other reason than I like them. I found my very first ARC the other day at a Goodwill. It’s not a new book but The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne published in 2006. Like my other collected books, I think ARCs are cool. I’ve entered a couple of giveaways and things but I haven’t won anything yet. Still, I’ll keep trying.
So, this blog, here are some things you can look forward to:
- Book reviews! I’d like to do a combination of YA and Adult books. I read a lot of different things, though Fantasies and Science Fiction are among my favorites (*cough*large-dystopian-section*cough*)
- Book hauls! A list of my ridiculous book buying!
- Rants! I have a lot of opinions about books. What I love, what I hate, what I think is weird or confusing. My book pet peeves and OCD things fall into this category.
- Maybe videos! I want to start booktubing but I need a few things first.
So for now, that’s all I’ve got. Who knows, this blog could go anywhere!
