The Reasons Why Paper Fury Is The Best



It's time for Top Ten Tuesday and this weeks topic is:

The Reasons I Love Paper Fury

It was a prompt to do Ten Reasons You Love X and I am so happy it was. I have actually had a post on Paper Fury planned for so long now, but never got around to scheduling it. What can I say, I am the most useless blogger. But this has given me the perfect excuse to get it posted, and give the biggest shoutout to my favourite book blogger and her blog. I feel like a large chunk of you have probably heard of Paper Fury and probably already follow it, if you don't then hopefully you will after this.




The Person Behind It: Cait

The obvious reason that I love Paper Fury is because of Cait, the girl behind the blog. She puts all her enthusiasm, kindness and humour into her blog. It is the reason I fell in love with it  years ago, back when it was the Notebook Sisters. It is rare that you will ever get a glimpse of Cait's face because... she doesn't have one!!!! No, just kidding. She is just a super shy human, like myself. Who would much rather show off her books or her awesome boots, rather than herself... Basically: my kind of human!


Her Posts Speak To My Book-Loving Soul

Cait's posts always speak to me. I finish them and just think... Yes, Yes, YES!!! I agree to ALL THE THINGS! She just seems to understand me, and a lot of other bookworms. She writes posts on a whole host of different bookish things: genres, tropes, things only bookworms understand or things non-bookworms need to know. Here are just a few of her latest posts (click on photo to go to post):

  


She Can Discuss Books

Now, I have a post coming up soon about the difference between discussing books and arguing about books. There is a big difference, and some people don't seem to get that. Cait does, and I love her for it. We have a lot of books that we both love, and I have sent her a few books over the years that I have felt she'd enjoy (luckily, in those instances, she did). But there are so many books we don't agree on. She loved Fangirl and Paper Towns, I didn't. I loved When We Collided, Cait wasn't a fan. But that just means that it leads to more discussion, and even making you notice things about a book that you didn't when you read it. It's one of my favourite things, Cait can discuss books with me without ever trying to change my opinion or make out my opinion is wrong. And I am the same for her. The world would be a very boring place if we all loved the exact same things. It's good to find fellow bloggers who are happy to discuss books with you, are respectful of your opinions and never try to tell you your opinion is 'wrong'. Cait is that person.


She's Also A Writer

Cait doesn't just read all the books of ever, (Seriously, it's June and she's already passed 100 books this year!) she also writes her own books. And at a speed that would make many writers jealous. She shares snippets of her stories on her blog, and it is glorious. She packs her books with all the humour I have come to expect, and writes wonderful characters. She also has a ton of posts on her blog about writing and runs a link up people can join in on about writing, called Beautiful People. I can't wait for the day she publishes a novel of her own.

    


Her Twitter Feed Is Glorious

Cait also has a Twitter feed and I honestly have to stop myself from just retweeting everything she ever posts. It takes restraint, her posts just speak to me!



Her Bookstagram Is Stunning

Bookstagram is my biggest obsession right now. Seriously, I can't seem to get enough of beautiful bookish photos. (I am working on more blog posts about bookstagram btw). Cait has her own bookstagram account and it is stunning! If you want to see beautiful photos of books everyday, like I do, then she is definitely someone you should be following. (Click on a photo to go to her Instagram)

    


She Creates Beautiful Things Out Of Books

So if it wasn't enough that she manages to run my most favourite book blog of ever. Whilst reading all the books in existence. And writing books at a superhuman speed. Whilst also taking stunning bookish photography. She is also super artistic and manages to create beautiful things OUT OF BOOKS. (Click on any photo to go to her Etsy store)

       


She Sells Bookish/Blogger Items

And if all of the above wasn't enough, she also has a Society 6 store where she sells glorious bookish items. AND I WANT THEM ALL! Seriously, I want every single thing and it is so painful because I am broke and shipping on there can be super expensive to the UK! But, I hope to force people to buy me these things for Christmas, as I want them so badly - especially the 'Book Blogger at Work' laptop cover, as it is accurate and will cover the ugly top of my laptop! (Click on photo to go to her store)



Her Sarcastic Humour Gives Me Life

Sarcasm is my favourite. I love sarcastic people, probably because I am super sarcastic myself. Cait's posts always make me laugh because she is so funny, and super sarcastic herself. She packs her posts full of her wit, sarcasm and humour and I love it. If you want to find a blogger that will make you laugh, then you definitely need to check out Paper Fury.


She's Super Supportive

The final thing I want to talk about is the fact that Cait is a super supportive person. She has been following my blog for as long as I can remember. She's such a busy person - just look at the above to see all the things she spends time doing - and yet she never fails to stop by my blog and leave a comment. She will give you words of encouragement when you need it. She is very supportive of her fellow bloggers and book lovers and it shows.


So that is ten reasons why I love Paper Fury. And why I think you should definitely check her out if you aren't already! So, who is your favourite blogger and why? Feel free to link to them so I can go check them out, as well as your own blog!
Leave a link to your TTT post, as I'd love to see what you chose for your topic this week.

  28. This is amazing and i love the idea of showing blogger support and love on this! I have been there and I can totally see it! I didn't know all of these things like the swag and the bookstagram (I'm still figuring out instagram) but my favorite part is the discuss! I try to do that as well though I will argue for my point of course in a discussion I do it in fun but never trying to push someone into my views.

    ReplyDelete
  29. OMG I agree with you :D I am her fan, too :D Yes, she is supportive and nice. :)
    another thing I like about Cait is she show different & good content across platform, so we never get boring and want to follow all her social media account.

    Great writing, Charnell!! :D
