Welcome to my new blog.
Within the blog I will be reviewing all the books I have read and will be reading, along with joining in on #blogtours and, hopefully, author Q & A’s and promotions and competitions.
I have started this blog as I love reading and have always reviewed the books I read on Amazon. Since joining a couple of book clubs on Facebook (including TBConFB) I have come to realise that authors are not all rich people who have endless promotional budgets to get everyone to read their books and rely a lot on reviews and free publicity from their fans and existing readers. With this in mind I also now review all the books I read on Goodreads and share my reviews on Facebook, not only my page but also on book club pages as well if I have enjoyed the book.
I will be using this blog to keep a list of all the books I have read over the year, so far this year, according to Goodreads, I have read 37 books, with my original aim being 52. Due to this I have a lot of reviews, which need to go on here, which I will being adding slowly over the next couple of weeks, and then when this is complete I will also add new reviews of books I read once finished.
Apart from buying books I also receive books, including ARCs from Netgalley, Bloodhound Books, requests from authors/publishers direct and from the Book Club on Facebook reviewer request page. I try to read books I am sent in order, but if a book as a deadline, either for when it is published or promoted through a blog tour etc it will take priority.
