I’m Shoto, another bibliophile. 🙂
I love books and this blog is a result of several failed blogs.
I’m a massive quitter and tend to quit most things I start. In the short term of my 15 years, I’ve managed to start and quit ballet, bharatnatiyam (a classical Indian dance), vocal lessons, drawing lessons, Carnatic music, kathak (another classical Indian dance) and most recently guitar lessons (though I’m going to start them again).
I’ve been blogging since the fifth grade. I’ve made no less than 8 blogs in the past five years. And I’ve quit every. single. one of them. It’s really embarrassing, I know. Then again, their content is super cringeworthy too, so I think I can be forgiven. There was a time when all I wrote about was the struggle of homework and how much I hated school, then came my Harry Potter blog, then came the time when I was far too open with my blog, then I started this blog as my diary(like all diaries, someone I know found it. It was terrible), then a blog just for my thoughts and random things.
I realised recently that as much as I loved blogging, I didn’t care much for what I was blogging about. I was in love with the fact that I was writing, not with what I was writing.
So I deleted and/or privated all my blogs, and started this one. I love books. I love blogging. Put them together and we get –
Which is exactly what I’m doing here.
This is where I’m going to post reviews, discussions, hauls, random things and other book related madness!
A lot of my friends don’t really like to read, so this is perfect for me to express my opinions on books. Reading other peoples blogs and their thoughts is also very interesting. I read primarily YA which a lot of people on book blogs seem to enjoy as well which is great. I’ll also get suggestions for what to and what not to read! I’m hoping that as time passes, my writing will also improve.
So that’s the
not so interesting story behind the creation of this blog. I hope that since I’m finally blogging about something I’m passionate about (books), I can finally quit quitting things. Oh wait. Then I’d still be quitting.
