WizardUpdate #1: Book reviews on Goodreads

Hello friends! Yes, I know it's been a long time since I've posted anything, partly because of school-related stress, partly because of lack of motivation. But I'm back and have more time than ever on my hands as I'm currently enjoying 2 months of break. This post is something a little different, just a quick post about something I absolutely love - books. 

As you might have noticed, the primary focus of this blog lies on movies and TV-shows. I have only ever written one book review on here and there is a very specific reason for that - I stumbled upon the fascinating world of Goodreads. For those of you who don't know what Goodreads is, here's a short description of what to expect: 

Goodreads is the world's largest site for readers and book recommendations. It has over 50 million users and is more than just a website. It's a community of authors and readers from all over the world and let's you truly explore the exciting world of books.

Not only have I discovered so many new books that I absolutely love, but I have also connected with so many users from across the globe. As I love to write about my opinion, my impressions, etc. I enjoy reviewing my recent reads immensely.

Side note: this is not sponsored by Goodreads, I simply love the site and decided to tell you about it.

I update my Goodreads almost every day, so if you're interested in books, reviews, reading updates etc. then you should definitely sign up (it's free) and come and friend me! I would love to know what you're currently reading - maybe you even have a few books you could recommend?

Goodreads also has a great challenge you can take part in - The annual reading challenge. Every year, you can set a certain amount of books as your goal. For 2016, mine was 30 books and I'm proud to say that I have already completed my challenge! The challenge is a great motivator and definitely is affective when it comes to getting out of a reading slump.

If you are already on Goodreads, feel free to tell me about your reading challenge! What is your goal? Have you already reached it? What is your favourite book series? I am desperate to get some new book recommendations! 

So there you have it - the reason I haven't posted book reviews since the one I wrote about Think Of A Number by John Verdon. I recently got an Email from a reader from Russia asking me why I stopped reviewing books - I haven't stopped reviewing them, I just review them on a different platform! 

Ps. Thank you for sending me an email, you are the inspiration behind this post! I always love to hear from you guys, because it's hard to imagine that anyone is reading this. I mean you people are literally scattered across the globe, but it's still possible to connect with you! And when I get feedback or messages from you guys, it's just amazing. 

As always, feel free to leave some feedback or some tips concerning this blog or specific posts as this is the best way for me to improve the content I post and generally this blog. 

Happy reading!
