Tell Us About Your Blog
My blog is a place to come and read about books I love. I have a passion for reading. There is just something about losing yourself in a book and escaping life for just a little while. I try to review books that will make you cry (good and bad sometimes), make your heart beat fast with anticipation, and give you a happy ending that makes you feel complete. I love the books I read so much, I will promote the heck out of them, hosting giveaways (half of the time paid for by myself but I don’t mind) so others can see what makes that book so special to me. Running a blog is like having hundreds of friends to gush about the latest books that have been released and recommend others to each other.
Why Did You Start a Book Blog?
I started my blog when I started reviewing all the hundreds of books I’ve read on goodreads and people started telling me how much they liked my reviews and appreciated the recommendations. I got a couple requests to review books and a representative from a publishing company suggested I transfer everything to a blog and go from there. I am eternally grateful to that woman because I love what I do! I started my Blog on April 7, 2013 and I am now approaching 500 followers. It’s crazy how fast people started following my blog. In one day i Went from 221 followers to 349!!!! I’m humbled and hope it continues.
What Kinds of Books do You Review?
Young Adult, New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Chick-Lit, Love Sports themed romances, some paranormal romance, and some Erotic Romance but I try to keep by blog from being to explicit so younger readers can enjoy my reviews too!
What advice would you give new book bloggers?
Take a crash course in WordPress! That was the most difficult part for me. I’m good with tech stuff, but figuring out plug-ins, widgets and why I couldn’t run java was frustrating. I would also suggest taking an active role in getting to know your followers as well as contacting authors that you love and telling them how much you love their books. I’ve met some amazing authors through email that I stay in regular contact with. Authors are people just like everyone else, they appreciate every person who expresses their love for their work. I think bloggers and authors help each other more than people realize, I’d suggest remembering that if you want to start blogging. I wouldn’t have so many followers if I didn’t have authors helping retweet and repost my posts, and I’ve helped them by sending them readers who weren’t aware of their work till they read my reviews.
What Formats of Manuscripts or Books Will You Accept for Reviews?
eReader formated , Print book only
