I cannot believe that one year has passed since I decided to start my own book blog. What a whirlwind and learning curve it has been! Having written reviews for other sites before I knew the work that was involved with reading and writing a review, but setting up my own blog was a whole other ball game.
As I got used to graphics, hashtags, and taking my own bookish pictures (I am still a newbie and learning something new every day from those more experienced and talented!), I began to fall in love with blogging almost as much as reading. Spreading the book love is so satisfying and the book community is one of the most supportive and welcoming groups you will ever find. There are so many people that I want to thank for their continued advice, support, and just being their hilarious selves but there really are so many I wouldn't know where to start!! I do want to give a special shoutout to all of the gang at A Bunch of Book Bloggers and Book Connectors - you guys are all amazing and I appreciate you all so much.
For all of the authors and Publishers who have trusted me with their book babies, and answered my questions, thank you so much for taking a chance on a new blog. And most of all I want to thank everyone who ever clicked on one of my links and read my thoughts on whatever book I had just finished. Thank you for taking the time to read my words (which are sometimes rambling 😜), for sharing my reviews, for writing a comment, for supporting me. I love books - always have and always will - and they play a huge part in my life, as they do for so many of you too, and today we need words more than ever, after all:
“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”
― Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
