Hello, there! It’s Mia, again 🙂 Welcome to my creative side project, Muggle Reads! Blogging about books has always been a huge part of my life for years now. Some of you may have stumbled upon my previous book blog, Girl About Books, which I managed for about 4 years until I went on full hiatus mostly due to my busy work schedule and the fact that I had a terrible recurring reading slump at the time.
During my hiatus, I thought about re-opening my blog again. And I tried twice, failed both times. Around that time, I realized it wasn’t because I was still in a slump. I mean, I read a book every month that year and I genuinely enjoyed them. Finally, I realized that my lack of motivation in blogging was due to my blog itself. It didn’t feel like it was me anymore, like the very reason why I wanted to blog in the first place went missing.
Three years ago, I began the preparation for the re-branding of my blog and I really took my time to think things through which helped me, immensely, to how I want my new book blog to become and I am determined to keep it that way.
Essentially, I will still be reviewing books and will be joining some bookish memes at times. You may notice that most of my old posts don’t exactly fit the format of my new theme, but if I’m going to be completely honest, I am too busy of a girl (and tired and lazy) to edit them one by one. Hehe! Also, my blog still needs further furbishing like a pretty header of some sort, I am currently working on that. And finally, I’ve managed to read quite a lot of books during my hiatus, so I already have some book reviews lined up for the next coming weeks!
I am really looking forward to rediscovering the book blogosphere and a whole lot of new reads!
