The Reading Diaries

The Adventures of a coffee drinking foodie who loves crafting and books.

I am not a bookworm!

My adventures, experiences and love affair with books.

I started this book in January of 2016. This January month marks the 2nd year anniversary of this blog.
As far as I can remember, I have always loved reading. I can remember reading my first grade English book from cover to cover at night before sleeping. I think stories about other places have planted the seed of my love for travel. I love that reading takes me places without getting on a plane and paying for a ticket. I can be anywhere in the world and be among other cultures without having to leave the room.
Books have widen my horizon about life in general, the world and even the universe. My first real books were Reader’s Digest Condensed books. My sister used to buy them from a second-hand bookstore and I would read them after she’s done. It was where I was introduced to Clive Cussler, Mary Higgins Clark, Wilbur Smith, Dick Francis, Robin Cook and it was how I started my love affair with mystery, suspense and thriller. I also try to keep up with new authors. Starting the blog and being on Goodreads did that for me. I meet contemporary, new and indie authors who out of nowhere found me through my blog or any of my social media accounts and asked me if I could review their book. And that’s the best feeling in the world. Blogging and reviewing books has become a lifestyle for me. I won’t give this up ever. Books have saved me in a lot of dark and overwhelming situations in my life. They have often put things in perspective when real life gets too much. Yes. I am a bookworm! I eat, breathe and love books.

Pages and Pekoe

This blog is about documenting the books that I read, participating in the book community, making new friends, and improving my writing. I want to take that feeling you get when you finish a great book and just want to talk about it and share that with like-minded people. Because you’re my kind of people!

Lu and Bean Read

At Lu and Bean Read, we share our very favorite picture books and middle grade novels (and occasionally some YA and adult reads, too). We love books that are clever, that make us laugh, that share our values of justice, inclusivity and diversity, and that are visually stunning. We host a kid-focused, kid-led podcast through which we interview fun, outgoing authors and illustrators. Our goal is to bring the bookstore/school visit experience to kids right at home.

Siren and Soldier Book Reviews

Im only just starting to boot up my book reviewing again, with a brand new blog and lots of energy. Super keen to help indie authors get their work out there as well as exploring hew books!
The majority of books I read are fantasy but depending on the contents, I am excited to read and review a diversity of genres. The only two genres I don’t review are horror and erotica.
Reviews will be posted on the blog as well as on Goodreads and Amazon. As well as book reviews, I also do author interviews, book releases and much more!

Fanstasy Thoughts from My Easy Chair

Comments on various forms of the fantasy genre, consisting of a book review and links to other writing blogs and articles. Also do guest blogs about a writer’s worst writing fear.

Read. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.

I’m Nicole, and I love to read! I’ve had a passion for books since I was a little girl, begging my grandmother to read the story to me just one more time. I enjoy all kinds of books and will read almost anything I can get my hands on. That being said, my favorites tend to be in the mystery, thriller, and suspense genres. On Read Eat Sleep Repeat, you’ll find mostly book reviews interspersed with the occasional recommendation post or blog tour.

My world as a book worm

I love books… with them you can travel all over the world, you can stimulate your creativity… You can be a princess or a hero or anything you wish to be…. here is the place to share whatever you want about your favourite books!

Lori’s Book Loft

Hello. My name is Lori. My library is located upstairs, hence, my blog is Lori’s Book Loft. I love books and perusing library and bookstore shelves. Years ago, I was a library supervisor, and freelanced for a publisher.

My blog is dedicated to books and reviews. I do receive requests to review advanced reading copies and other works. My reviews are made available to viewers and also libraries who use reviews to expand their collections. I truly believe reading expands awareness. And, I hope this blog helps you find new books to love!

Book Ink Reviews

Book Ink Reviews started out as a little baby side project and has turned into a book blog with a steady following. All kinds of books are reviewed, and there is a tab to follow if an author would like to request a book review to be done. I update as often as I can finish books, which tends to be about two times a week. Aside from blogging on the blog, all reviews also get promoted across all social media sites–which means more free advertising for the author!
