Although I stopped being a book blogger, I expanded my blog to lifestyle with the occasional book-related post & that felt more real to me.

    Are you obsessed with your blog?

    When people hear you have a blog you usually have two different reactions. The first one is “OMG, Good for you trying something new, relevant and interesting to hear about!” and the second is “What are you doing with your life & why are you wasting it blogging?”. Luckily I have so far only had the first reaction with my friends and close family, except one family member. How long have you been around? This blog was started on the 15th of May 2017 on a whim to write down my thoughts about books. it has since expanded to have blogging tips and recently other reviews on different topics. I…
