2020 was stressful to all of us, so I wanted to start 2021 with an appreciation post for bloggers who really were there for me. I hope I had spoken more to other book bloggers but unfortunately I’m bad at starting conversations but here’s a list of people I were the most grateful for.
It doesn’t mean I didn’t appreciate other bloggers since there were ton of those.
I can’t believe my blog is already one year old *cries*. I never believed I’d get more than hundred followers and I thought I’d be the lonesome blogger in the blogger community but I actually have so many blogger friends that I can’t thank them enough for cheering me on, especially with my insecurities.
This was inspirited by a post Kristina @ Books and Dachshunds did last year about how to choose in which language to read in. Instead of talking about that I’m going to discuss why I sometimes find it hard to write English reviews to books I read in Finnish.
I do prefer reading books in English but there are some I still read in Finnish, like the ones I already own or suddenly decide to loan from the library. There’s no point in writing them in Finnish since so far I’ve only come across like one Finnish blogger aka Tecsie @ Tecsielity.
I failed my Supernatural Hunter challenge in 2018 but I really hope I can pull this one off. Renee @ Addicted To Romance told me about this challenge and even though I don’t really remember how Monopoly is played– this is great way to read more Romance books.
I love romance but I often have problems with the plots or the characters. I hope I can find the love for them again with this challenge. You can find more about this challenge here.
I decided to go with level “the tourist”, so I need to do only one challenge in each neighborhood. I also need to complete the Library squares. Total books I need to finish for this challenge is eleven, so I shouldn’t get too out of track.
Down The TBR Hole was created by Lia @ Lost In A Story. I didn’t have any discussion posts planned for today, so I decided to continue this meme.
“Most of you probably know this feeling, your Goodreads TBR pile keeps growing and growing and it seems like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. You keep adding, but you add more than you actually read. And then when you’re scrolling through your list, you realize that you have no idea what half the books are about and why you added them. Well that’s going to change!”
It works like this:
Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
Order on ascending date added.
Take the first 5 (or 10 (or even more!) if you’re feeling adventurous) books. Of course, if you do this weekly, you start where you left off the last time.
