What Makes You Follow a Blog?

Hi all!

A small fact about Beaucoupbooks is that its stats this year have been pretty poor. I used to post three times a week, and now I’m lucky if I make one post a week. I don’t regret this change, because it felt necessary that I take a step back from blogging this year, but the outcome from this decision is that my blog suffered in terms of stats.

Recently I’ve also noticed that a lot of the bloggers I was friendly with a year ago seem to have slowly disappeared for a variety of reasons, such as careers, school, and health reasons. Some have even deleted their blogs, and its only when I’ve searched for their blogs on WordPress have I discovered that they’ve been deleted.

I love my little blog, and I’m eager to inject some life back into it. Since my blog has been struggling this year, I was wondering: what makes you want to follow someone’s blog?

My Bookish Decor Wishlist

I’ve mentioned before on my blog that I’m really into interior design. I’ve decorated my bedroom several times, not only because it’s fun, but I also love the idea of having my room be a space that reflects my personality. Since I love both literature and design, I figured why not make a post about some of my favourite bookish decor items.

I’m quite minimalist, so a lot of the items I would like in my home are quite plain, honestly. I’m not much of a fan of clutter, but if it’s bookish, I can let it slide. Anyways…

Confess TV Adaptation (Mini) Review!

Soooo I’m doing a mini TV show review because my blogging schedule is shot to shit and I figured why not write my thoughts on this Confess adaptation since I have nothing else to write about…

Untitled-1

I haven’t read Confess but I saw the show advertised on Twitter a while back, so I took a night off from uni applications and watched this show. I watched them all in one sitting, they’re surprisingly short – 7 episodes long, each around 22 minutes long.

So here’s a quick review!

Contains spoilers of both the TV show and the book!

Some People Don’t Want to Read, and That’s OK

So… This is something which I think about every now and then, but it’s late and I can’t sleep so I’m writing down my thoughts. I’ve been thinking about some of the mentalities I’ve seen from some book bloggers and literature lovers in regards to people who don’t like to read. And they kinda annoy me…

This isn’t aimed at anyone in particular, I’m just bringing to light something I notice every now and then online

Favourites: Novels Studied at Uni

I haven’t done a favourites post in a very long time. And since I’ve had a recent clear-out of books recently, I thought why not make a post on my favourite novels I discovered through my time at university. I wasn’t a very good student and didn’t read every single recommended read (because that’s just ridiculous to me, come on) but some of the novel I actually read were pretty fab, so here are some of my faves:

eBooks Deserve More Love: A Mini Post by Me

Mini post because honestly, I don’t have much to say on this subject, but I believe that eBooks deserve more love from readers.

I feel that within the book community, there’s this underlying belief that if you don’t own a bookshelf crammed full of books, then you’re not a “real” bookworm. This view, in my opinion, is total dog shit, and I reject it completely…

Basically, I love eBooks. I have done for years, and here’s a short list why:

Another eBook Haul!

I’m in a massive reading slump. It’s not that I don’t want to read, but it’s that I have way too much on my mind that I can’t concentrate or even relax enough to get into a book and enjoy it. Even so, I’m still buying eBooks because I can’t resist the good offers, and they’re slowly piling up on my Kindle app. So I thought since I can’t really read them right now, I’d make a post on all the books I bought recently!
