Follow Friday #24


This Weeks Follow Friday Question:
What drove you to start book blogging in the first place?

Well, I honestly got really into reading again after reading Twilight. I was always big into reading, but Twilight introduced me to the paranormal and I fell in love! I started a personal blog on livejournal, because it sounded like a fun way to make friends and what not and then I saw that people were blogging about books on there. They were posting reviews and stuff. So I thought well I love talking about my favorite books and books I just read with my best friend, why don't I tell others too?

And that is how Book Bite Reviews began. I started posting reviews on my personal LiveJournal blog and then decided I needed a new place for them and one that was prettier and here you have it! I really just did it for the love of books. I wanted to express my opinion on them and help other readers out. After starting a blog is when I found out you could get books for free and that was just a bonus. Sometimes its even a curse getting books for free, because I feel you never catch up to reading all the books you have lol. 

So how did you start? 

Thanks for stopping by and following! Make sure to leave a link back to your post so I can follow back =D

  5. I also did it just to express my opinion on the books I've read. I didn't do it for the ARCs, but yes, those can be a bonus... especially books you hear everyone raving about, but it's not released yet >_< lol. New follower! You can find my FF here.

  8. The Hunger Games got me back into reading! it's amazing how that one book just starts up your love for books all over again. I had never heard of let alone read a dystopian till that book. Now it's one of my favourite genres!

    Ooh interesting! I always loved reading too! But I was reading what paranormal books I could find before Twilight came out! I was ahead of my time! I loved paranormal books, yet they were hard to find!

    Nowadays I am overwhelmed with paranormal reads! It's a beautiful thing! Hee hee!

  26. Thanks for the follow!!


    You know that is why no one can say Twilight was a bad book. Maybe some don't like the writing or the author or whatever crazy reason they dislike it, but it brought SOOO many people together and caused SOOO many people to either start reading again, read more, or read more YA. You cannot go wrong with something like that =D


    Happy friday will check out yours!

  27. Oh the hunger games!! Don't tell anyone, but I was/have been OBSESSED with Twilight since I read it, but once I read The Hunger Games I have to say I like it way more that Twilight. I never thought I would love a book more, but I do. lol
