2 Years Blogoversary Giveaway


Can you believe Ive been book blogging for two years now?  I've definitely become less active than I was my first year, but I'm still enjoying my books and writing my reviews.  So here's to another year of reading books and writing about them...

Looking at my one year post, I see my idea of short and simple reviews hasn't changed.  I'm not one to read an essay on a novel to determine if I should read it.  I'm looking for the bottom line and a two sentence reason why I should read it.  I've also noticed that I'm slightly lagging on my meme posts.  I guess I kind of didn't want blogging to be a job.  So I stuck with the books and kept reading instead of blogging.  Which is okay; it just kind of turns me into a sporadic blogger.

Books reviewed from November 8, 2012 to October 12, 2013:  76
Books reviewed from October 8 2011 to November 7, 2012:  132

Average Rating 2013:  3.49
Average Rating 2012:  3.44
Overall Average Rating:  3.45


So what are my plans for the next year?  I guess it's to keep reading.  Maybe I'll become more consistent with my blogging and make some good book bloggy friends.  Just keep my head down and keep reading, haha...

  1. I read an advanced copy of a sequel for the book Tent City (Dystopian type novel)...... I was a huge fan of the first but this second one..... I could not put it down! It was awesome!!! I cannot wait for it to be released.... and for an indie author she did an amazing job with the editing! It was beautifully written and nicely edited with minimal errors..... it had not even been sent to the publisher yet! Loved it!
