One year Blogiversary!

Wow, I have been blogging for a whole year now!

This has definitely been a great experience for me! I started this blog last October because I wanted a place to share some of my thoughts about the books that I was reading. This blog has given me a place to do just this, but, for me, the real bonus has been interacting with other book bloggers. I appreciate the variety of voices and opinions in the book blogging community! I have discovered new authors and genres and I have been encouraged to read more widely and to step out of my reading comfort zone. I may find myself reading a few more YA and dystopian novels in the near future and to consider the unique perspective they offer. And, for me, this will be broadening my horizons because I typically read mostly historical fiction…which I love and will continue to read! πŸ™‚  

I am currently trying to read more Classic Literature written by women by participating in the Womens-classic-literature-event and, more recently, I have started to read more about science. I think Dava Sobel is to blame…and I thank her for it! πŸ™‚ 

It has been a wonderful reading journey so far. Thank you to everyone who has followed my blog and who has commented on it this past year.  I appreciate your comments, feedback and book suggestions! And, I look forward to more book reviews and ‘bookish’ discussions along the way.

Happy reading!

  1. Congratulations!

    My first year anniversary was last month and I really resonate with this “I have been encouraged to read more widely and to step out of my reading comfort zone.” Same here. Wonderful book-blogging community!

  3. I’m so glad you read The Heretic’s Daughter! It was such a great book!! And I think it’s awesome that you plan to put some science books on your TBR! My recent interest in science started with Dava Sobel– another wonderful and inspiring female author!!
