Welcome to A Bolt out of the Book!🌩

Hello everyone! It’s still Cherelle from Cherelle the Bibliophile, except that I’ve changed my book blog’s name to…

A Bolt out of the Book

New site address: https://aboltoutofthebook.wordpress.com/

Not to worry, the blog is perfectly the same, just that I’ve worked on a little revamp to fit the new name, which means yes go seek some shelter, you can expect lots of lightning around. (Hoping on your behalf I restrain from cheesy weather puns). Just note that some of my comment links won’t work and I won’t receive pingbacks to the old site address so please link to the new one!

Why the change?

Honestly, I wasn’t very satisfied with my site name of “cherelle the bibliophile”. I simply came up with it on an impulse when I started this blog 2 months ago, not knowing a single thing about book blogging. Let me clear. It is not that blog names that go xxx the xxx sound bad, in fact I love how many of them go… but I’m obsessed with word play and thus after seeing so many witty blog titles, wanted one for myself as well.

“A Bolt out of the Book” actually comes from the idiom “a bolt out of the blue” which describes a sudden and unexpected turn of events or news, which often would shock and surprise us. Similarly, I can never ever predict what hundreds of pages bound together can have in store for me and am often astounded. Be it fantastical and magical elements, or even the most abrupt of plot twists or game changing character developments… all of these never fail to make me gasp and clutch my book more tightly in my hands.

Thank you guys for being here.

  2. I hate my site name too 😂.
    Like at first I had no site name so when I realized you are supposed to have one, I randomly selected any that came to mind 😑.
    Still regretting that 🤧

    1. Ooh very observant of you Ahaana! You can go the theme customiser — colours and background, there will be this rectangle colour for the background. You can click on “palette”, a white box in the rectangle. It will review a few circles of colour, by changing different circles, you can change the colour of different things like links and also the footer! I hope that it works!

      Thank you! ❤
