TGIF - A Book Blogger is Born

Ooh, look at me trying other memes! This is the summer me, everybody! But I'm about to leave to work for summer next week so this is sad times blogging-wise. I promise to visit!

TGIF is a weekly meme hosted at GReads! It's all about sharing and discussing with other bloggers. 

This week's question is:
A Book Blogger is Born - What made you decide to start your very own book blog?

I first started on Livejournal -- you can even see my old blog! It's called Endless Books. So original, I know. Why I started blogging about books was because I didn't have much bookish friends. I didn't have anyone to talk to about the books I was reading. And trust me, at that age when you're reading teen books and you have something exciting to say, it feels like you're going to burst because you neeeed to tell someone but you can't! That's why I turned to the blogging community. I was so happy to share my thoughts with people who knew what I was talking about, who knew which part of the book was worth shrieking about. And I've never felt so close with other bloggers.

I then made friends with people in the blogging community, gave and accepted recommendations, and spoke with some authors. I am so, very thankful for everyone who's visited, commented, or participated in my blog. Without you, I believe this blog would be completely different!


  1. Great answer! I love that you get to share your thoughts on books. A lot of my friends don't read as much as I do so we don't really talk about books.

  2. I love that us as bloggers get so excited about books! Whenever I see a blog post or a series of Tweets gushing about certain books, it makes me so happy that I started blogging!

  3. It seems like everyone started a book blog to talk about books with someone. It's awesome that you can still go back and see your old blog. I can't do that with mine because the site shut down. Book blogging is awesome :)

  4. The story of all our lives - we see the awesomeness of books and just wanna talk about them when the other people around us don't :(. great answer!


Show us your bookful of thoughts! :)
