The Encouraging Thunder Award!


Hello! I’m feeling so overwhelmed because I’ve got nominated for a cool new award called The Encouraging Thunder Award. And I would like to say a huge thank you to our lovely blogger Cristina @My Tiny Obsessions for nominating me for this award. So guys, don’t forget to check out her cool blog. 😀

How it goes down:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you.
  2. Post the Encouraging Thunder logo. (below!)
  3. Mention your purpose in blogging.
  4. Nominate others for the award.


I started blogging just so I could share my thoughts about books and interact with other bloggers. The sole reason is none of my friends or family share quite the passion that I do, so blogging is my outlet and thankfully there are other people with similar interests. So, I’ve finally decided to have my own blog. At start I was a bit worried that if I could be able to manage it or not but now I think it’s a great decision that I’ve made this year because so far I had an amazing experience in the blogosphere. The best part has been connecting with people from all over the globe reading their thoughts and stories. It really gives a wonderful feeling when someone responds to the posts or comments on your thoughts and opinions. It’s been nearly six months since I’ve started blogging and during this time I’ve made so many friends who share similar interest in books and I always love to check out their posts too. I blog because I enjoy it and I love fangirling about books because it’s something that brings me Joy and Happiness. I’m quite thankful to the people who made this possible especially my followers who likes and comments on my posts.

    Thank you 😀 Haha, I started a blog mostly because no one else in my family reads books either! But it’s okay, it’s really nice to share the bookish feels with people from all over the world 😉

    My reasons are almost the same. Plus, fangirling over anything used to be like, my lifestyle. Well, I manage to hold back a bit now that I am older but a girl has to fangirl!
    Thank you for tagging me Raven!

    We somewhat have similar reasons when it comes to starting my blog, albeit, it took me about a couple of months or so to transition it to an actual book blog. It’s so hard to find someone in real life to talk to about books since none of my family members and most of my friends don’t even read. HAHA Creating a book blog has been one the best things so far. 🙂

    Thank you for the nomination! ❤

    Thanks for nominating me! My reason for blogging is so similar, I wanted to get involved in bookish discussions and I envied the community that bloggers have, I started by reading a lot of review on GR but now I adore WordPress and the friends I have made online, including yourself!
