2022 is the fourth blog-iversary of my blog, and as someone who thought they may last six months at best, I’m pretty chuffed with this milestone!
When I became a book blogger, I was just about to commence a Masters in Creative Writing – which I completed, graduating in 2020. Once the nightmare of homeschooling came to an end, I pursued self employment, working freelance as a copywriter, which I still do, but more sporadically since I started working in possibly the best job ever for a book worm. As a bookseller at The Rabbit Hole Independent Bookshop in my local town of Brigg, North Lincolnshire, being responsible for selecting adult fiction titles for sale in the shop, as well as arranging events. As I said. Best job ever!
I now get to read and call it work – legitimately. Of course working in a bookshop is (sadly) not just sitting and reading all day. And it has been a struggle to find time to both read and review, and so this poor little corner has been a little neglected over this past year.
So, I’m rejuvenating. Shorter reviews (you’ll find me hanging out on Bookstagram quite a bit these days!) and focusing in on the book love.
Oh, and I’m also a moderator at The Motherload Bookclub over on Facebook – pop over and join the fun, lots of chat, monthly readalongs and tons of giveaways!
