Blogging Books & Study Life

New blog: Coffee and Books

Last year I’ve read 60 books! So, I’ve decided to start a new blog, called Coffee and Books.

Coffee and Books Blog

I’m very excited about my new blog. I mentioned Why I’ve started Coffee and Books. There are a few amazing book blogs out there and, hopefully, mine would be a pretty good one too.

Because taking pictures is another thing I love doing, I’ve decided to add a cup/mug of coffee in each photograph I take of the books I’m reading. I’ve also decided to add some “props” that are related to the book. For example, in the latest review, Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella, I had a cappuccino as Becky, the main character, loves cappuccino. As with the rest of the objects in the picture… it’s a book about shopping, makeup, clothes, jewellery. When I took a picture of Sister Queens by Julia Fox, I’ve added pomegranate seeds, as it was Catherine of Aragon’s badge.

If you don’t want to miss any book review, follow me on bloglovin. I will publish a few reviews each month.

These are the books I’ve read last year, by month:

  1. I’ve just followed you over there on Bloglovin’, looking forward to reading all your book reviews!

  2. I am quite a fan of Philippa and I think I’ve read most of her books! I love historical fiction from that era. Good luck with our book blog! I love reading books (and read quite a lot) but I think I just don’t have the patience to review them, sadly… I do wish I could keep a better record of how I liked which book somewhere somehow though!

  3. What a great journey and now you have a blog for your books! You should join mumsnet blogger book club! They give out books to read for review! Another great way to get book to read!

  4. I’m really excited for you for starting this new blog! It looks really interesting – I like the name. I think it’s a great way to document what you read, of course we’re really thankful you share it out! 😀
