Thoughts #8: The Perils Of Being A Book Blogger

I want to read them ALL AT ONCE. I absolutely love book blogging. But sometimes I worry about the blog, or question certain things. This post will basically be a list of concerns of mine, minor and major, and hopefully they will resonate with some of you!   I’ll never get through my ‘to-read’ shelf, even if I gave up everything else in my life! – yup. I actually quite often panic about my ‘to-read’ shelf, because I know there are lots of amazing books on there and what if I never get to read them?! What if I miss […]

Horror October: Introduction Post

Horror October is here! An event organised by Leanne at Literary Excursion, you can read more about the event on her blog, or read my announcement post. 1. Tell us a little bit about yourself. I’m 22, from the UK and currently working as a medical receptionist. I’m working to save for my Masters degree, so I can go on and become a museum curator – however I really enjoy my current job too, which is a bonus! I studied ancient history and archaeology for my undergraduate degree, and graduated last summer.   Apart from reading I also love discovering […]

Banks – I’m pretty much keeping my eye out for ALL the sci-fi in my local charity shop at the moment, in preparation for Sci-Fi Month. I picked this one up because I plan on doing a post about Iain M. Banks, who sadly passed away this year, as part of […]

Weekly Roundup #28

My ‘Weekly Roundup’ is where I share the books I have received in the past week, whether bought, gifted, borrowed etc. Bought Dragon Age: The Stolen Throne (Dragon Age #1) and Dragon Age: The Calling (Dragon Age #2) by David Gaider – so I recently finally played Dragon Age: Origins after owning it since it was released, and I LOVED it! I’ve been fangirling over the series (and Alistair) with Paola from A Novel Idea, and she said she enjoyed the books. I haven’t been impressed with Bioware’s previous books (Mass Effect ones) but… when I love a series I […]

It’s My Blogoversary! + Giveaway

  Yes! Rinn Reads is one year old today! It feels like a lot of us set our blogs up around this time. I thought I’d write a little about what has happened in the past year, and at the end I have a giveaway to thank my lovely followers.   I started the blog shortly after graduating from university. I’d been reviewing a little bit on Goodreads but I wanted my own platform for it, and after university seemed like a good time to start. My first few reviews were just copied straight from Goodreads: some are very short […]
