In order to shout about this amazing event I've been asked to spread a little #BookishJoy and write a thank you letter to anything bookish that I can think of!
Dear Bookish Community,
The main thing I want to say is 'thank you'. I have always found it hard, in the past, to really put my mind to something I enjoy. This comes from some pretty deep-rooted anxiety about change, the fear of being unsuccessful, and about how others perceive my interests and passions. I first set this book blog up, way back in 2014, as a way of logging my reads more than anything. I didn't do it for followers, but for personal tracking and to give myself something to do that didn't involve sitting around feeling unproductive. At the time, I probably thought I'd procrastinate more and more with it until eventually I gave up on it altogether.
But it's thanks to other blogs that I stumbled across that I read for hours and hours that I kept working to improve my reviews. It's thanks to the authors that I read and communicated with that I decided to take my reviews more seriously and consider myself a 'real blogger'. And it's thanks to the Bookish Community as a whole, particularly those I've met on Twitter and Goodreads who every day ask me 'what are you reading?' that I have managed to keep this blog going and I remain excited about it every single day.
So thanks for helping me to discover what I love. Thanks for taking an interest. Thanks for making me feel welcome. And thanks for the never-ending reading recommendations!
Phew! I hope you enjoyed my little entry into this super fun Blog Tour I've been a part of, and I'm so excited to meet more of the Bookish Community that I love so much at CHCCYA Fest!
