Let’s stay connected…

I did a post similar to this a while back linking you guys to my Goodreads and I thought I would do it again but with some other social networks. Let’s stay connected and be friends.

So, I am going to be honest here and say I don’t use twitter and bloglovin as much as I would like to, but it is because I don’t have you awesome guys to motivate me and chat to. If you would like, leave your details in the comment section and I will check them out.  I do want to get an Instagram for my blog, but I don’t want to log out of my everyday account…and then I don’t want to bore you guys with my everyday posts (or should I…would you care?  Please go and give me a cheeky follow, I would love to chat to you more and you never know…one day this might have a link to my YouTube channel which I said I would create about a year ago and then got scared.

**update** I’ve joined bookstagram!!! Search ~ Book_Captivation. Follow me ☺️
