Tips/Things to Remember

Have an outline: Before you start writing, have an idea of what exactly you want to say in your review. Think and organize your thoughts. For example; Make a list of the things you liked/hated most in the book. Ask yourself questions like “What stood out to me the most?” or “What could have been better?” Then, try to group them under categories such as plot, characters, writing, pros, cons, etc. Next, outline your review.

🎶 Happy Blogoversary to Me, Happy Blogoversary to Me 🎶 

I still cannot believe it. One year. One whole freakin year.  And what a year it's been! I went from no followers and an attempted Blogger account (which didn't work on my iPad or have an app, so I had to scrap it), to 3,000 followers and over 20K page views.  You guys couldn't make …

The Book Blogger Awards Winners

Thank you to everyone who voted for my blog!! Seeing this really makes me feel like a part of the community, and I couldn’t be happier.
Thanks to Joce, and thanks to all who are fellow winners and nominees!

Write Through the Night

Hey guys!!

First off, if you are still unfamiliar with the book blogger awards, you likely weren’t following my blog very carefully, but can figure out what I mean by heading back over to the original post.  I decided to do the second round via Twitter because that seemed like the best possible way to get the most possible people to vote.

Second, I want to thank all of you who did submit blogger nominations!! It was amazing the number of new blogs I found through this.  I hope that, if nothing else, anyone who wants to find new book blogs will be able to because of this.

Third– to those of you who nominated me for something, THANK YOU SO SO SO SO SO MUCH!!! You all are incredible and it means so much that you feel the same way about my blog ❤

The Belgian Reviewer


I still remember it like it was yesterday when Stephanie @TeacherofYA’s Book Blog reached out to me as a new blogger. She started blogging in July 2016 but I can tell you she has already surpassed me in everything by now. Her rating system is a very original one with two different sets: RainbowBrites for book appreciation and another one for class approprieteness. I think she must be a great teacher in real life too and I wish I’d gotten someone like her when I was younger! She read 168 books in 2016 so I think you’ll find a lot of inspiration if you’re into YA fantasy books! Be sure to check out her blog and give her a like, she’s so nice!

Following bloggers is very personal. We start following blogs for different reasons. Perhaps a single post catches our eye one day. Perhaps a blog is recommended by someone else. Perhaps a blogger follows you and you follow back. Whatever the reason, for me, the blogs I read regularly are the ones in which I feel some sort of personal connection to the content or the blogger’s point of view. That means they’re usually book related.

20170107_141947-v2So, for some Friday Fun, I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite book bloggers. Perhaps you know them, perhaps you don’t. Before I start, I want to be clear there are many great bloggers out there I follow and many I probably haven’t discovered yet. If I tried to make a list of all my favorite bloggers it would be very, very long. This list includes bloggers I really enjoy for the following reasons…

  • They clearly love…
