[Blog Milestone] 200 Posted Book Reviews!

Royalty Free Image via Pixabay

Today I posted my 200th book review on this blog, which is unbelievable! From children’s fiction to teens, from YA to adult literature, I have read and reviewed up and down the literary spectrum. It has been quite a journey but I was always so excited to share a book I had read with everyone.

Not every review was stellar or full of unbridled praise, that’s just how things work. I didn’t like every book I read but the majority were really great reads.

On January 30, 2016 (nearly four years ago!) I posted my first book review on this blog was for the wonderful Snow Like Ashes by Sarah Raasch. Fun fact, Sarah Raasch was the first author I ever interviewed!

Each year since I’ve read and reviewed more and more. This year has been particularly productive. I managed to read 160+ books and posted 82 reviews in 2019. With the year soon to conclude I’m gearing up for a bigger and better and more productive 2020 year.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to stop by my blog and read my reviews and allow me to have many bookish fan-girl moments. It really means alot.

Happy Reading!

Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas!

Happy New Year!

and I will see you all soon in 2020!

Sincerely,

Christina

The #Relatable Book Tag


Welcome to the first ever #Relatable Book Tag! I had an idea for another tag that I wanted to try out. This tag pairs books with, you guessed it, things we can all relate to doing.

I hope you like this tag and maybe have a good laugh! Let me know what you think in the comments below. Link back if you decide to do this tag.

Here’s a quick copy paste of each question if you decide to do this tag. Below you’ll find my responses to this unusual tag.

  • Procrastinating Getting Things Done
    A book you’ve been putting off reading…
  • That One Pierce Of Clothing You Wear All The Time
    A book you own that’s well-worn, well-loved, and/or has been read multiple times…
  • Checking That There’s Nothing Scary In Your Shower
    A book that you read the ending first before starting…
  • Unable To Eat Just One Potato Chip
    A book you couldn’t put down or finished in one sitting…
