Reasons Why I Love Blogging

reasons why i love
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is a freebie so I decided to talk about some of the reasons why I love blogging. Even though there are many more reasons why I love blogging I thought I’d keep it simple by only listing three.

  • My Own Space– I love how I can just post about whatever I wanted here on my blog, it’s very freeing. I do choose to mainly talk about books and I’m glad that I have my own space on the internet to do it.
  • Talking to people who understand – I don’t know anyone in my real life who loves books and reading as much as I do so it’s great to come online and blog about a book I love (or even a book I hate) and have other people on here talk with me about it. Even though this blog is only a few years old I have been following the book blogging community for a very long time and it still shocks me how many people are just as into books as I am.
  • Happiness – It sounds so simple but one of the reasons I love blogging about books is that it makes me happy. It’s hard to get to grips with the technical side of things sometimes but when you strip things back and realise that the main thing is about sharing your thoughts on books with people it can really make you happy to do so.

Why do you love blogging?

Top Ten Tuesday- Eerie Places in Books

ttt- eerie places pic
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is a Halloween freebie so the topic I’ve chosen is: Eerie Places in Books. There are definitely some places in books that give you chills when the main character goes there so I thought I’d list some of the places that stand out to me.

cobCity of Bones/The Silent City (The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare) – When Clary first goes to the City of Bones I thought it was very eerily described.

dasab.jpgThe Moors (Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire) – This was definitely a creepy place and when I was reading it I kept picturing the Halloween town from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

mp.jpgMiss Peregrine’s Time Loop (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs) – Miss Peregrine’s Time Loop is not really a place but the time loop paired with the home itself makes the books feel like they are set in very eerie places.

unwindUnwind Harvest Camps (Unwind by Neal Shusterman) – The Harvest Camps in the Unwind series are not just eerie but very frightening especially when reading from a character’s perspective who’s in the camp.

hpForbidden Forest (Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling) – In both the books and movies of Harry Potter the Forbidden Forest seemed like an eerie spooky place.


What are some places in books that felt eerie and creepy to you?
