Get To Know Me
Welcome to my blog!
Here I’m going to post stuff about books, comics, graphic novels, movies, booktube and even about my own life. Starting this blog is a big accomplishment for me, because I’ve wanted to start a blog for a very long time but I never succeeded in actually getting it up and running. And when I got it up and running, I never knew what to talk about so I ended up neglecting it within a few weeks. But this time I plan on posting (relatively) regularly but I’m not promising anything. And the reason why I think this blog is going to work out for me is a simple reason: I have a topic for my blog, and that is books (or anything book related)!
But before I’m going to tell you anything more about the content on this blog, it might be useful if you know who I am. So, Hi! My name is Lucy, I’m 23 years old, I live in The Netherlands and I love to read. I have a Booktube channel on YouTube (with my best friend) and this inspired me to start my own blog about books and book related stuff. Making videos about books is so much fun, and something I wouldn’t trade for the world, but sometimes I just wanted to talk about something book related when I didn’t have the time and/or space to film. This usually ended up in me forgetting what I wanted to talk about when I actually had the time and/or space to film, and trust me this is frustrating. So I needed something else, something more than just my Booktube channel, so I decided to start this blog!
I want to post stuff about books; such as reviews, rants or anything even the smallest bit relatable to books, comics and graphic novels! Oh and also about my life.
What you really need to know about me is that I am a slow reader, but this won’t hold me back on wanting to write reviews about the books I read. It might take a bit longer for me to actually read the book but I don’t mind that. This also means that you won’t see me throw reviews at you every single day, because that’s just not who I am. I will try to write a review about every single book I read, this means you can expect 1 – 4 reviews a month (maybe more in a good month). For comics and graphic novels I plan on doing something else, probably something like a recap and/or overview of multiple issues or volumes, but we’ll see what happens. I also will sometimes write about stuff that happened to me or just random thoughts I have because I just love sharing my life with as many others as I can. And since I basically live on the internet, expressing myself through a blog isn’t something I have a problem with.
I said before that I want to post about anything related to books, this means that I will be posting monthly wrap-up’s. If you don’t know what a wrap-up is, then I don’t know where you’ve been in the book community, it is a overview of all the books I managed to finish in the month. I will also be posting hauls here (and I have one coming up real soon!) and sometimes just random bits about my personal life. Once in a while you might also see a review or rant or whatever about movies, TV-shows or even about Funko POP! Vinyls (because I might be collecting them slowly)
But this should be enough for now. I hope that I’ve told you enough on why I started this blog and I hope you will enjoy the (future) content on this blog. If you want to follow me elsewhere, here is where you can find me: Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads and YouTube.
