About Me…

Hello.. My name is Shayney, I’m 24 and I live in Wales, UK. I have decided to set up this blog so I have a place to write down and express my thoughts and reviews about my love of books. I am a bit of a book enthusiast and wanted a place where I could express how I feel about each book once I finish reading it and hopefully discuss that book and others things, with other people in the blogging world. I come from a big family who don’t read at all so they don’t understand how great reading can be and I’m always being told “Why read when you can watch the film”, so it can be nice to have a place to express them feelings and not feel so alone out there.

I love reading different types of books and being taken into so many new and exciting worlds that the authors wish to transport you into. I 100% prefer to read a physical copy of a book, compared to an eBook, even though it is easier and you can carry more around with a kindle, but you just can’t beat a physical book, in my opinion. I just get into a physical book easier, holding it in my hands, seeing how much I’ve read and knowing how much I’ve got left, the progress I’ve made, whereas with a kindle and eBook, I’m just staring at a screen and it takes me longer to get into the book.

I’ve been sent a few e-books lately from different authors, including ARC, who have sent them to me in exchange for honest reviews of their books, so I have started reading e-books more than usual. That is also another reason why I have set up this blog. I’ve only been able to give reviews so far on Goodreads and Amazon, so in order to improve that and because I’m being sent more and more books to review, I wanted another source to give reviews.

*I am brand new to blogging so please feel free to leave me comments and messages and even give me a follow, especially if you agree or disagree with any of the reviews and we can discuss the books. Or even help me out with how to get started with the basics on learning the basics when it comes to blogging, I’m always happy to learn.*

If you are an author looking for somebody to review your book, in eBook or print format then please feel free to email me or leave me a comment. Please check out my Review Policy first before emailing me. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi! Thanks for the follow!

    I could totally relate to you! I also set up my blogging account to express my own thoughts about the books I’ve read because most people around can’t relate to me. And yes, I totally understand the feeling of what your family is saying to you. Although that’s not exactly what my parents are telling me, they’re telling me that I read too much and it’s not healthy anymore, but still, I know the feeling. Also, I agree with having to read a physical book rather than ebook. Just the feel and the presence of the book you’re reading is pretty relaxing and indulging. Not to mention the smell of new books is intoxicating.

    I hope we could exchange opinions about our book reviews. I really love meeting people who loves books the same way I do. ^_^

    Thanks again for the follow! And I hope we could be bookish friends! 😀
