Challenge 15 is one of the challenges that I was dreading a little since first reading a list. It’s not because I have so many mentors that I can’t pick one. It’s that I don’t really have any, just as I don’t have a real friend group online either. This is just so tied with challenge number three for me. But I really don’t want to just end the last challenge with a fizzling disappointment, so I’ll give you some of the bloggers that I religiously read and look up to.
- The Book Rat: I found her through youtube and I love her videos but sometimes they get a bit lengthy. That’s why I love her blog, I love reading more than watching vlogs so that really helps. I also have to say that she really does a lot of stuff on her blog even though she really has to put a lot of effort in.
- A bookish heart: I love her discussions and the pure honesty dripping from her reviews. They are also always extremely insightful and worked out very well.
- good books and good wine: pretty much the same as above. She has great rants as well. I love it!
- Between the lines is an endless story: I especially love her as well because she tends to review books in a non-snarky way. I enjoy that as well because it’s less harsh sometimes. She just has a very pleasant writing style as well. And she reviews some of the same books which is a nice way to compare notes. But she also reads things that I’ve never even heard of, making me want to check them out!
This is the end of the 15 day blogging challenge and it was a lot of fun. Some challenges were a lot easier than others, some more interesting as well. But all in all I think this was a good way for me to break away from reviewing, even if it was just for a little while. I hope that this challenge has also helped people to get a little more insight into me as a person. Because I think that knowing the person behind a blog helps you see whether they have the same taste in books as you, or the same habits. It makes it clear whether you will like the same books they did or not at all. But on the other hand I’m happy that I’ll be going back to regular blogging starting next week. This challenge made me post a lot more than I usually do and I realize that this is just too much for me. Daily blogging is not for me. Biweekly blogging however is exactly my thing. So look out for that!
