Two years ago, after a couple of months on NetGalley, I decided to start a blog. 

Today I celebrate my second year as a book blogger.

Here are some statistics:
  • 969 blog posts.
  • 15 more scheduled.
  • 225 blog tours or blitzes.
  • Just about 96,000 views. 
  • I read 311 books in 2018, 539 in 2019 and 283 so far in 2020.
  • Have received over 1000 NetGalley ARCs.
  • Have received well over 100 print ARCs.
  • Have received about 150 Edelweiss ARCs. 
  • I still love the library! I have read over 260 Kindle books between Hoopla and Overdrive, with quite a few being audiobooks.
  • Additional Audiobooks between Scribd and Audible since 2018 are 108.

I am a series fanatic. I have finished countless duologies and trilogies. I am up-to-date with Iris Johansen’s Catherine Ling, Kendra Michaels and Eve Duncan series, Catherine Coulter’s FBI series, including the newest, Deadlock, Karin Slaughter’s Grant County (finished) and Will Trent series, James Patterson’s Alex Cross series and Leslie Meier’s Lucy Stone series. I am reading several ongoing series, including J. D. Robb’s In Death series, Joanna Fluke’s Hannah Rayburn series, and several crime fiction series, for example, Carol Wyer’s Natalie Ward, Angela Marson’s Kim Stone and several others. I have also read several Amish Fiction trilogies and longer series, as well as ongoing historical romance series. 

My favorite genres are, in no particular order, psychological thrillers, romance, historical romance, historical fiction, women’s fiction and inspirational romance. I have read a few YA books, including YA Fantasy.

I love reading books, writing reviews and updating my blog daily. I hope this blog has a long lifespan ahead. 


  1. Congratulations on your 2 year blogaversary.Here is to more years in blogging.

  2. Wow! Those stats are amazing, congratulations. I’m not sure when my blogaversary is. I will have to check it but I know I haven’t read anywhere near as many books as you. This is great.

  3. Congrats on 2 years book blogging, Robin! Those stats are crazy high! Great job :)

  4. Almost 1000 blog posts! That's insane :) I think when we made the decision to quit blogging and move to Instagram after almost 3 years, we only had like 300 blog posts. You're doing amazing :)

  5. You have made serious headway and phenomenal growth as a blogger in just two years - you are an inspiration, although I'm far too lazy to even approach your stats!

  6. Wow only two years, it feels like I've know you for a lot longer. Happy blogversary. X
