If you’ve been blogging for more than, say, a month, you’d likely have noticed that it takes way, way more time than you thought it would. I’m the same. I thought you just read a book, you write a review, you publish it, and voila! Blogging’s done for the week.

Top Ten Confessions of a Book Blogger


Hello and happy Top Ten Tuesday, guys! This week’s theme is a freebie, which is always hard because research has shown that having options leads to anxiety and unhappiness. Thankfully, I’m kind of an impulsive decision-maker (most of my life-altering decisions have been impulsively made) so I’ve decided to go with… blogger confessions!

I missed doing the Twitter hashtag back when it was going around, so this is kind of me catching up with the rest of you lucky enough to be around when that happened. Here we go. 🙂
