How my blog started.
I used to work at a bookstore (De Reyghere) in Bruges, Belgium. The thing I liked most about working there was talking to other booklovers, recommending them books I’d read and hearing which books they liked best. It’s been three years since I left the bookshop but my love for reading hasn’t changed. I started this blog to share my thoughts on the books I’ve read.
Advice to new (book) bloggers
I think the most important piece of advice I can give is “stay true to yourself”. If you only talk about things because everyone else is talking about them, you will lose your “self” and that would be a shame. Trust in your own ideas and share the things YOU like. I recently did a post on “read the books YOU want to read” because I was on the verge of losing my true self.
