To Review or Not to Review? Why I chose to join the book blogging world

Welcome to Found in the Fiction!! My goal for this blog is to {slowly} document all of the books that I’ve read, both for my record and for book-lovers everywhere. I’m Amelia, a 22 year old book fanatic. Like most book bloggers my love for reading began as a kid, where I would stay up late into the night, hidden under the covers with a flashlight and my latest book.

While I started reading chapter books with The Magic Tree House books, my taste has grown and changed as I have : ) I am willing to read just about any type of fiction novel. I firmly believe that as I read more I discover more about myself, hence the name of this blog. We find out more about ourselves as we read the stories of others and learn from them.

I guess its time to get onto the point of this blog, before I bore all my readers, even if I don’t have any yet. There are a few reasons why I chose to join the book blogging community, besides the obvious  obsession with books I have : )

1.     I wanted to associate with others in the community, make friends, and share a love of books with others who are like-minded.

2.     I’m hoping to receive books on the side and do reviews for new authors and new books. I can’t wait to get my hands on more reading material.

3.     I love to write, and hope to improve my skills as I write on a more regular basis.

4.     I want to have documentation of all the books I’ve read and how I liked them, so even when I can’t remember what the book is about anymore I can look back and see what I thought.

5.     I think every blogger has dreams of grandeur, and I’m no different. I want to make it big, gain followers, and maybe make a little cash on the side. We’ll see how that goes though!

I’m also hoping to have lots of fun in the book blogging world. So, why did the rest of you join the blogging community? What are you looking to get out of the experience?
