June 2020: Monthly Wrap-Up & Thoughts After One Month of Blogging

It’s already been my first month of blogging (well, give or take a few days) – hard to believe it passed by so quickly!

I actually made this blog because I found myself with more time on my hands than usual – not only was I socially distancing because of Covid-19, but my partner was also dog sitting for her sister, so I was stuck at home, alone for the first time in what felt like a very long time.

I’ve always loved reading. When I was a teenager, I used to borrow as many books from the library as they would let me. Carry the whole pile around with me everywhere I went as I quickly made my way through each one of them. Then go back to the library soon after to swap them out for even more. Yes, I was definitely a nerd, haha. I still am! 🤓📚✨

But as I grew older and headed off to college, I found I got busier, my priorities shifted, and I had a lot less time for reading than I used to. This saddened me. So much of who I was when I was younger was tied to the books I read at the time.

Ever since then I’ve been trying to read more, playing catch up on all those books I never had the chance to read. Finding out what new titles are available. There are so many books out there, I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface reading them.

Making this blog was in part a way for me to motivate myself to get back into reading more, and another part a way for me to celebrate all I have been able to read – and to make a few book-loving friends while I was at it!

I’ve read more books this month than any other, and I think a big part of that was because of this blog. It has been such a huge motivation for me! Other months I might not be able to manage to read as many, haha, but I think that’s okay.

This is my first time ever in my life writing book reviews (though I’ve read them for a long time), and I think it’s been going really well! Starting this blog has reignited my passion for reading, and reminded me as to why I loved it so much for so long.

In one short month I have now not only a blog dedicated to books and my Goodreads where I post reviews, but I also started a Bookstagram and a Twitter! (I even joined a group reading of The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins over on Instagram!) And still so, so many books left to read…

I can’t wait to see what the future brings~ 💗
