Bookish Challenge: April with BookCoyote

Hello My Dear Book Lovers!

I have to admit one thing that I – as bibliophile, bokaholic and bookstagrammer – haven’t done (yet). It’s sad, but in all 13 months that I spend on Bookstagram not at least once I participate on bookish challenge. You know, the ones that you have take photo every day for different tasks. However, two fellows Lithuanians on their Bookstagram account posted one interesting deal (challenge). So, finally, I decided to try out this trend on my @gutreadingtime account in Instagram 😏

I think I have what to show for all those days, but I’m most excited for 27th. Not only because I will all my attention to less known author (maybe even few), but I will celebrate my 21 birthday too. I mean, it’s quite scary to get older and older, but I believe that 21 is great age! Screenshot_2016-03-28-10-03-03

Getting back to the point. Are any of you are joining this challenge? If yes, for which day you are excited the most? Or maybe you attend some other challenge? Let me know what kind of it is πŸ˜‰ By the way, if this one gonna be successful for me – May challenge I will create myself.

P.S. Challenge goes under #BCBCApril tag in Instagram and are hosted by @BookCoyote account.Β

Say “Hello” and Wish Me Luck

This lovely evening I’m saying Hello from chilly Lithuania!

I guess not many people in the world know about this little country in Europe near the Baltic sea. However, this isn’t geographic lecture about 3 millions of Lithuanians. For this first post in new bookish blog I have other idea in mind. Actually, I just want to introduce myself a little and tell about my “deal” πŸ™‚

First thing first, I love books! You know, I don’t just love them. I ADORE THEM. I can boldly say:

,,I’m AgnieΕ‘ka, Gut to friends, and I’m proud bookaholic!”

So, you can accept it or leave it. The choice is yours. But if you decide to say, I recommend to follow this blog (follow button somewhere down bellow) πŸ˜‰

So, if you decided to stay, I’m very happy that there is a book lovers who understand my addiction, because, let’s be honest, it’s not going anywhere. Moreover, I plan to post a lot about that in this blog. I can reassure that in this blog will be posted books reviews, news about upcoming books, maybe even interview with authors, giveaways and other related stuff. It’s hard so say from the first day all the possibilities, but the more people will join us here the more fun we will have. I can promise that.

What is important too is that the style of blog isn’t permanent. I’m looking for the best option for me and you. But feel free to look around, check “About Me & Love For Books” to get better view of where I came from (again, not about the country) and where else I spread my addiction (my contacts). For more look into my “To Be Read” list, just for curiosity πŸ˜‰

The only thing that I want to add for this fist time is that I’m really sorry for my poor grammar. English isn’t my native language, but I’m trying my best. Just be patience and I will try to improve. Also, it’s my first blog on wordpress, so I’m not sure how things work here. So, if anyone know how you could help me in any way – I would be really grateful πŸ™‚
