Theme Reveal 2023 #atozchallenge

Best Bookish Blog went into what was meant to be a very short hiatus, just as the world was struck by the pandemic. All the worry about Covid and what was ahead for us, caused me to lose my way a bit, and there hasn’t been a blog post here since then.

That is all about to change, as I’m now intending to revive the blog, and continue to add to my book reviews. If you would like to check out the reviews done so far, they are listed here

The other announcement is that, once again, I will be participating in the April A to Z Blogging Challenge. The April A-Z Challenge, requires me to post every day in April, except Sunday, to a chosen theme, using the letters of the alphabet from A-Z. Some bloggers choose not to have a theme and that’s ok too.

I have participated in the A to Z Challenge every year since 2015, on my other blogs, but on this blog only two times. In 2016 I participated on two blogs. I can say that the challenge of posting two posts a day for a month was more stress than anyone needs. I most probably won’t be doing that again.

I really do enjoy this challenge for many reasons. Aside from the discipline it takes to be organised sufficiently to post every day, Mostly, I love the opportunity to connect with other bloggers. These bloggers are blogging on a very diverse range of topics, with most being vastly different to the blogs that I usually read.

My theme for 2023 will be book reviews. All reviews will be on books that I have read, some new releases, and also older books that are still available.

All reviews will be my own opinions. I receive no payments for reviews, nor do I receive free books to review, unless otherwise stated.

I would love you to join me, and hopefully find a book in my reviews that sounds interesting to you. So you don’t miss anything, you are able to follow me, by entering your email address in the sidebar.

  1. Hello Jennifer….popping in from Denyse’s blog.

    Recently I seem to have lost that ‘desire’ to read which is quite sad really. Like you saying you’re going to revive this blog, so I’m thinking I really need to revive my interest in books. I know it won’t take much, just needs one or two holding my interest plus some good recommendations so I’ll be reading/following along.

    I took part in the first A-Z April challenge many years ago, Following a link from another blog I found Arlee’s post where he was talking about what he’d planned to do in April 2010 – I thought it would be fun. Didn’t realise how much work it would be though.
    Take care

  2. I did a ‘blog everyday’ challenge several years ago and it got me out of a blogging slump because I HAD to write something and it didn’t really matter what. I closed comments on the posts and ‘wrote like no one was reading’.

  3. I’ve been in a writing slump too Cathy. I remember not being able to find a book that excited me. I think it was my headspace problem and not a lack of good books. I agree with you about the AtoZ challenge. It’s a huge amount of work. But fun too!

  4. Well done on your challenges. I did something like that in 2015 into 2016 so I had purpose by showing up and writing. I look forward to seeing what you share on Wednesdays too.

    As always, I am grateful that you shared your post for Wednesday’s Words and Pics. See you again next week, when no more daylight saving in Australia for 6 months, means Eastern States will be all on same time! Denyse.
