Four years ago I decided to take my love for reading to the next step, I decided to start About Happy Books. I wanted to share my love for reading with other readers and I wanted to recommend the good books I read to other book lovers.
My blog started with the following post
So here is my first post, it should be something special but because I'm still working on making my blog the way I want it, I'm going to keep it short.
In the future I'm going to post my reviews about books that I read recently, days, month or years ago. As long as I liked a book I'm going to post about it. There will be no negative reviews because I want to concentrate on the books I enjoyed. Of course there are books and series I'm not really in to, but I'm going to keep quiet about them.
I'm also going to write about books I can't wait to read, so after the present and the past here comes the future. And of course most (ok, all) books I'm talking about will be books with a happy ending because when reading I like to wear my rose-coloured glasses, that's why I love romances.
Oh, before I forget it: English is not my native language and I try my best but of course sometimes there will be little mistakes. So sorry for that.
Hope you have as much fun reading my blog as I have writing it.
Since then some things have changed, for example my url (from norarobertsismyqueen to abouthappybooks), and I got a new layout that is 100% me. But the core of the blog is still the same. I still blog solely about the good books I read and I still do what feels right to me and not what is trendy. I still enjoy blogging as much as I did on my first day and this makes me very happy. I still feel that every post on the blog fits completely to who I am and that's another thing that makes me very happy.
At times I feel a certain alienation to some parts (some of the 'cool' people) of the book blogging community, but all in all I love book blogging. I love interacting with other book bloggers and of course I love all readers who are interested in talking about the good books they read. Thanks to all the nice and amazing readers I met here on the blog, on facebook, on twitter, on youtube, on booklikes and on goodreads. You all are amazing and make talking about books one of the best things in my life.
Btw, I would love to know how and when you first discovered About Happy Books, let me know in the comments about your first visit on About Happy Books.
