Books + my dog + wine = my life
Welcome to Proud Book Reviews! A place where I read lots of books and share my thoughts (good or bad) on what I read.
I’m in my early 30s, live in Melbourne, Australia and typically read on my Kindle. However, I do have a lifelong ambition to have my very own library one day, packed full of floor to ceiling shelves filled with all the book’s I’ve read. And of course, more that I’d like to read.
Where do I get my books?
Well I’ve gotten quite a lot from BookBub between early 2017 through to late 2018. So much so, that I’ve had to stop buying them so I don’t have to delete books from my Kindle!
BookBub is a free service that you can sign up for that send you an email daily (I think you can opt for weekly) of all the books the you might like that are on sale or free at the moment. I know this sounds bad, but when I had no money to spend on books but wanted more new books to read, this was the perfect solution for me that also supported the authors.
I also work with Rach Random Resources, The Write Reads and various authors. They keep me updated on books that are available to be reviewed and I’m able to pick which one’s I’d like to read. I’m not always successful in getting a spot, but I mostly seem to be lucky!
My ultimate goal with writing this blog is to keep track of the books I’ve read, my thoughts on them and whether I’d like to read more of that series or author. However, I hope you too can discover new aspects of books you’ve read, or books that are new to you that you might enjoy.
Given I started this blog for me (and honestly didn’t think anyone would care about what I thought of books!), I will always be honest about what I think. Even if the book was gifted to me or is on tour, I will always tell you the truth.
If it’s a book I didn’t enjoy, I will tell you who I think would enjoy it. And I’ll be clear about exactly what it was that turned me off that book. We all like different things when we read, what I don’t enjoy could be exactly what you’re looking for!
I don’t want you to miss out on a potentially great read, just because it wasn’t for me.
