Sunday Funday: Bookstagram Reviews

September 4, 2016 Sunday Funday 2

Sunday Funday Logo

The weekend is almost over, which means back to work tomorrow for most of us. So to cheer you up (and myself) I am going to be giving you a little bit of bookish fun every Sunday, to make the end of the weekend that little bit easier!

I have had such a hectic week and I am so happy to be spending my Sunday reading. I literally just finished Asking For It by Louise O’Neill last night and I’m looking forward to starting on something different, maybe some fantasy?

Work is starting to get busy again as all the students will be starting back in just over a week for a whole new year. Plus I went shopping to find a dress for my cousins wedding this week (my original one ended up being ivory, which is the same colour as the wedding dress. Oops!) and had a lovely night out with the girls from work. And then yesterday I went to Haworth with my mum which, if you didn’t already know, is where the Bronte sisters lived and wrote. It was really fascinating to see it all and I learnt so much more about them.

Also, just to let you know that my Birthday Giveaway is still open so make sure you check it out and enter for the chance to win some bookish goodies!

Ok, so my Sunday Funday. This week I was looking at lots of bookstagram accounts as I try and actually improve upon my own instagram and I came across a really cool account that I just had to share with you all

So, they are called Subway Book Review and  they work by finding people on the Subway (US) or on the Tube (UK) who are reading and asking them for a photo with their book and a mini review of what they think of it so far.

There are such a great mix of books from YA to Fantasy, Thrillers to Children’s fiction. There is even a review from a woman who is reading a book about cheese!

I spent over an hour flicking through all the various images and reading all the mini reviews and have added at least 20 new books to my TBR! Plus I just feel like it’s such a great way of sharing peoples love for reading. Reading can be for anyone, and it really shows on this site with people of all ages, cultures, religions and areas all posted up there together books in hand.

What is your favourite bookstagram account that you follow? What do you think of  Subway Book Review?

Enjoy your Sunday and have an excellent week!

    I love this instagram account. It looks so cool. I am all over following that. What an original idea (why didn’t I have it… apart from the fact I live nowhere near the tube or have a whole lot of readers on the bus with me… or really want to talk to strangers).

    And what did you think of Asking For It? It’s one of those weird reads you don’t enjoy but did without saying enjoy because it seems wrong for the subject matter. Also, the ending is so frustrating it is unbelievable.

      I know right, such a cool idea! I’m following it too!
      Totally agree with you in regards to Asking For It. I feel like I didn’t like it, but at the same time it was really really good. But yes, totally agree with you about the ending!
