It won't be much longer before my blog goes off to college. It's growing up so fast. *wipes a sentimanteal tear from eye*
When starting this blog three years ago, I had no idea that it would change my life. That may sound dramatic and an overexaggeration but I truly mean it. There are a number of reasons why book blogging has affected me so much and I can't articulate very well how much it means to me, but I will try to explain in this post.
I have always loved to read. I'd get through books so fast and I was known for engulfing a whole Harry Potter novel in one night. My obsession with Jacqueline Wilson, Cathy Cassidy, Maggie Gibson and Jean Ure's books grew and grew and I loved to escape into another world. When I was around 9 years old, I would go to the forum on the Jacqueline Wilson fansite and talk for hours a day with other fans. I still remember the names of some of my friends online that I would talk to daily. After a while, the website changed and the forums were completely wiped. I tried to get back into the swing of gushing over books but it wasn't the same.
Few years later. Enter the blogosphere.
The first blog I found was Amber's The Mile Long Bookshelf (her blogoversary is also today which makes it even more awesome! :D) and I scrolled that site for ages. I discovered a bajillion new books that I wanted and was freaking out at how great this was. After talking to Amber for a while on a side chat thingy, I decided to create my own blog. I made a personal blog - 'The Blog of Wonders' - which was so utterly crap that we don't talk about it, understood? *shivers*
After a lot of
THANK YOU, BOOKS. THANK YOU, FOLLOWERS. THANK YOU, BLOGGY FRIENDS.
I LOVE YOU ALL.
I aplogise that there isn't any giveaways or interviews or fancy guest posts, but I hope you know how much you mean to me. *cheesy music begins* This year has been pretty sucky because of my illness and it has been hard to stop blogging so I appreciate those who have been supportive. I will return soon, hopefully after Christmas. :D
Happy Birthday, Bookhi!
