Heyyyyyyyy Guys, thanks for joining me on this journey!
I’m known as Books Tea from bookstagram but here I’m Oscar. I wanted to be a little more open with my books by starting this blog where I will post book reviews, goals, and my lifestyle with the books I’m reading. So you will see a lot more of me on this blog. My goal is to post at least three times a week so you guys can be entertained by my witty personality through my reviews and what I do on my free time and my busy times in my life. All the stuff that will be posted here will be my personal opinions only.
Here is a pic of me getting books in the mail. I love it.
So, I began this journey with Instagram back in December of 2017 when I was in a really stressful place in my life. I was full of anxiety because of school and reading was my only escape in my life, also eating was my escape as well haha. When I tell you, I would eat I would EAT! If I didn’t love reading so much I think I would have created a food blog instead lol. But, I really needed something to take me out of this dark place that I was in and creating this side project made my life a little more exciting and popping. Before I became Books Tea I would only read YA books like Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Divergent, etc. I knew that I wanted to expand my reading with different books that were out there, however; I didn’t know where to start. Mainly books that were by diverse authors and mainly books that were in the literary fiction genre, were my go-to selections. Fun fact: I was also a literary fiction junky back in the day because English Literature is my all time fav subject in school. To continue, my birthday is on November 16th and I told all my family members that the only thing I wanted from everyone was a book that they would think I would like. It could have been from any genre in the books store and from any author, they thought that I personally would enjoy. Therefore, I got a ton of books that sounded incredible and very fun, these were books that I never heard about and I was excited to read them. Therefore, the books that got me into this obsession of reading so much and reviewing books were The Orphan’s Tale by Pam Jenoff, Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward (currently my fav author that is still alive), The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead, and other fun books that I still need to read because I became obsessed with buying other books that caught my attention more :D. So, this led me to create a page where I would share what I was reading with the public so others could see that reading is the best thing to do. There you have it, folks, that is how I got into this crazy journey.
All in all, WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF READING!
Stay tuned for more fun blog post that will be posted in the near future. Thank you and see you then.
