Blogaversary - First Year

Today I celebrate my first year as a book blogger.

Here are some statistics for this past year:

  • 505 blog posts.
  • 25 more scheduled.
  • 58 blog tours or blitzes.
  • Over 34,000 views. 
  • I read 311 books in 2018.
  • I have read 196 books thus far this year.
  • Have received 578 NetGalley ARCs.
  • Have received 77 print ARCs.
  • Have received about 100 ARCs between Edelweiss and First To Read.
  • I still love the library! I have read 75 books from there.
  • Let's not forget Audiobooks. I have read/listened to 35.

This blog has kept me very busy! I love this blog because I get to share my reviews of the books that I read.

My favorite genres are, in no particular order, psychological thrillers, romance, historical romance, historical fiction, women’s fiction, and, more recently, inspirational romance. I have read two YA books, but that’s about it. I love thrillers, but not horror, although I was encouraged to read Baby Teeth by Zoje Stage, which I did end up giving 5 Stars. I haven’t delved into genres like YA Fantasy, paranormal or Sci Fi.

So far, for 2019, here are my top reads:

Where do I go from here? I must be honest. I would love more followers! Other than that, I would like to keep reading and posting each day. I look forward to one year from now to see whether or not I can keep up the pace. 

Lastly, I hope that those who read my reviews will be inspired to grab a book, kick their feet up, and ENJOY!


  1. Our reading tastes are quite similar, although you read Regency, Christian, and Amish, all of which I tend to avoid. I'm not one for YA or horror at all either.

  2. You are so impressive. I've been blogging for over 4 years and don't even have 200 books on Netgalley. I don't think my % has ever been below 95%. Looks to me though like you had a fab years. Here's to another fab year coming up.
