I’ve always loved to read, have been brought up around books and have passed on this love of books and reading to our daughter. And there’s the key. For the past (almost) decade, I haven’t made the time to read, always putting some else’s needs first (rightly or wrongly – there’s a discussion for a separate blog post!).
In January 2018 I decided to start reading regularly again. I wanted to give my eyes a break from allll the screens and enjoy some down-time. Some time where I could dive into another world for 5 paragraphs, 5 chapters, 5 minutes…
I also took up a book reading challenge last year through GoodReads and am doing the same this year. Last year’s challenge was to egg me on to keep reading (I love updating my book with ‘read’!).
All this reading gave me the idea to share the books that I’ve loved. There won’t be full-on reviews, just a personal view of why I enjoyed a book. What better way to share my reads than in a blog linky for everyone else to join in with?
#BrilliantBooks was born. If you’ve blogged about your favourite read, share it here! There aren’t really any rules; it doesn’t need to be a recent read or a recent post. Just a book, any book, any genre, any author. I think you get the idea! And it doesn’t have to be an actual book either, e-books are welcome. I’m not saying that I’ll read every single post but I will share every single post on various social media. If you’d like to be featured next month, link up and share each post on twitter tagging it @AllSortsHere #BrilliantBooks . The person who has shared the most tweets posts with the hashtag will be featured in the next linky post which will be the last Friday of every month.
And let’s not forget instagram… link up your picture and use the hashtag #BrilliantBooks . Just copy the url of the actual picture into the linky tool below.
Share my badge (see bottom of the post and my sidebar) or link back to my blog and let’s go!
