Four years later...


Today is my four-year anniversary. Life's been a little hectic so I haven't been posting, like at all. However, I am making strides to fixing that. Blogging has not been a part of my life as of late, since a lot has happened. I did end up missing my three-year anniversary, so as a result, I am going to be highlighting things from the past two years. 2017-2018 was an exciting year for me, I accomplished a lot of strides towards my end goal of publishing.

The idea of having a book blog was a long time coming. I had constantly thought about making it sooner, but I had no idea where to begin or what I even wanted on my blog content-wise. So four years ago today marks a huge accomplishment for myself. It also marks something else in my life that was very important. My blog helped me realize that I wanted to eventually work in the publishing industry. To my past self, that seemed like a huge task and something that was not going to come easy. However, with recent developments in my life, the dream of mine is slowly but surely coming. So I owe a lot to this blog, it has helped me figure out my life path, as well as meet new and amazing people to whom I call my friends today. Four years have breezed by, I can't wait to see what the next four may look like.  

This post is going to include some of my highlights from the past two blogging years, some thank yous to some very special bookish people, and some fun giveaways.

Reading Challenge for the New Year

My amazing bookish friends Taylor from Stay on the Page and Cody started a very fun year-long reading challenge for some AMAZING authors. They spent the time creating a fun blog to go along with the challenge where you can see the updates and giveaways. The blog is Beckminavidera and trust me there is a reason for this unique name:

"Beckminavidera is a combination of four Young Adult authors (Becky Albertalli, Jasmine Warga, David Arnold and Adam Silvera) who all debuted in 2015 together. As an inseparable group of friends, they created their own sort of ship name known as Beckminavidera." - Taken from
Beckminavidera

I love every author mentioned and incorporated into this challenge, however, I have not read every single book scheduled. I am excited to either read these new books or reread some of my favorites.


The month of January was a busy one, so I unfortunately did not get to participate in the read along and chat, but I am looking forward to Mosquitoland.


Have you guys read any of these books?

Co-Blogger Announcment

Hello readers! Today I have some very fun and exciting news, there will be someone new joining my blog. It's been a long time coming, and after my first year of university, I found it to be a real struggle to keep up with my blog posts. During one of my lectures, I met my co-blogger. She's absolutely fantastic, and we really started talking after we completely fangirled over some of our favorites. 

 I know that I was not as active this past year, but I hope this could all start to change! The purpose of this post is to introduce my new Co-Blogger so that once she starts posting on OUR (going to take some time getting used to that) it won't be a surprise to your guys. 


SO without further ado here is Serena...
