How Fortunately, The Book, began:

Well, it’s pretty simple: I have another blog, my main blog, “La tartaruga si muove” (The turtle moves, from the Discworld series) but it’s in italian, my first language.

But I read a lot of english books, so I decided to open a second blog, this one, for all my english review, and as an help for me to increase my english, and to better spread the love for some of my fave english books.

I know, now I don’t have time to translate my old reviews. I try my best.

I will never expected such traffic or love from the book community. Really, you’re the best!

For the newbie bloggers:

Have courage and be kind!

But you need to be kind too. Kind to other bloggers/bookstagrammers, and don’t feel superior to them. Kindness is a great quality.

Don’t feel bad if you don’t like what everyone else like! Read what you like, when you want and re-read if you like it! And use GIF in your reviews, because I love GIFs XD But that’s only my opinion, I’m not an expert! If you write a positive review with your heart, and a great dose of fangirling, the followers/readers/bloggers notice it, and they will appreciate it!
