Introducing the Bookish Brits

Hello everyone! I'm very excited today to tell you about my latest project. Some of you may remember that I posted a vlog in June about some books that I wanted to read over the summer. At the same time, I floated the idea that I'd love to set up a collab channel on YouTube about books.  I only had one person come forward to say she was interested and that was the end of that. But I never stopped thinking about it ... and now, finally, it is happening.  I'm so thrilled!

Bookish Brits! It's a collab books channel made up of 10 book bloggers around the UK and we'll be uploading videos every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

It's me; Caroline from Big Book, Little Book; Faye from A Daydreamer's Thoughts, Kirsty from The Overflowing Library, Lucy from Queen of Contemporary, Julianne from this fleeting dream, Carly from Writing from the Tub, Daphne from Winged Reviews, Debbie from Snuggling on the Sofa and Jenny from Books That Spark. (Isn't that an amazing line-up?)

We'll be discussing every age range of books from children's, middle grade, young adult, new adult and adult though I'd say that our main focus will be YA. Expect reviews, discussions, tags and just a general bookish discussion over there on a regular basis. Don't worry though, all of us will continue to blog as normal. 

We're also very lucky that Faye took so much time and effort to make an introduction video about all of us together and designed our channel art and everything. Thanks Faye! I think it's a great bit of information of all of us. Can you say that you 'know' all 10 of the BookishBrits? I can't. Not yet anyway :)

I'm really, incredibly nervous about my BookishBrits debut. *bites fingernails*
