Q: What would you do over if you were to start your blog again from scratch?
I think honestly I’d give it a different name – I came into it thinking book blogging would only be a small part of my posting and that student-life posts would take up the majority of my time…in reality it’s more like the other way around. I’d also network a lot more, I’m still pretty poor at it! I don’t think I’d really want to change anything drastic though, I’m kind of loving the learning curve!
TGIF is a weekly feature hosted at Greads.
The question this week:
Unexpected Books: Which books did you have reservations about reading, but ended up loving once you did?
This is a really hard question, because 9/10, if a book doesn’t reach out and grab me from the blurb, I probably just won’t read it! The exceptions of course are a) books somebody has bought me and b) library books.
Wolf of the Plains (Also listed as Genghis: Birth of an Empire on goodreads). I didn’t expect to enjoy this at all, but it was lying around on the shelf and my dad raved about it. I thought I’d give it a go and ended up loving it! I’ve just ordered the latest in the series and can’t wait to start it.
My reservations about A Game of Thrones came mostly from the book itself – my parents bought me it for Christmas a few years ago, and I just couldn’t get into it. It seemed so slow and long-winded that I’ll be honest – I gave up. I put it back on the shelf, walked away, and didn’t think about again until I was bored one day and looking for something we already owned that wasn’t a re-read. I gave it another go, and really enjoyed it once I finally got into it.
