Why I Love Book Blogging

I love books.No, seriously I do.I love them so much that surviving without books for even two days is impossible.I start having withdrawal symptoms and it gets nasty.And no I'm not kidding.
Not only do I love books I love hoarding them even though I have a LOT of unread books sitting on my shelves.And in my Nook.And my Kindle.
And then I have my book cover lust-It is NOT my fault that there are so many books out there with gorgeous covers.I see them looking all nice and shiny on Amazon and I HAVE to buy them okay?
And then we have my obsession devotion towards characters in books.Let's just say that if you ask me who my favorite book boyfriend is you'll be stuck listening to rave on and on for next two days.

So you see it was only natural that I start blogging about them.Now I can go on and on about the books I love and sometimes about the ones I hate without everyone around me giving the O.o look!
I started blogging only last November so I'm a newbie but the welcome has been overwhelming!I've met a LOT of lovely bloggers who are friendly,helpful and generous!And then I got to talk to all these cool authors who are actually interested in knowing what I think about their books-the authors are really sweet & down to earth so interacting with them is really fun!

I have also stumbled upon so many awesome books that I didn't even know existed!And all those cool genres out there like Steampunk,dystopian and apocalyptic I've been introduced too?Totally love getting recommendations!

And that is why I love book blogging is just another extension of my love for reading books.

And now for those amazing people who helped me create and continue this outlet to express my undying love for books :D

  • My friends and family who supported me and didn't call me crazy for deciding to start blogging!
  • My buddies on Goodreads-You guys were my initial followers and I don't think I would have actually gone through without your love and support!A special mention to the members of Laurynne's ❤ Coffee, Books & Lipgloss ❤ Book Blogger & Author Social Hub!
  • My blogger buddies-Each and every blogger who encouraged me and helped me out!
  • My followers and buddies on Twitter-Thanks for listening to my rants and for the sweet thoughts that you sent my way!
  • And now for the best-My awesome commenters!I loved re-reading each and everyone of them.Trust me,waking up in the morning and seeing your comments made my day! :)
