Hi guys! Welcome to the December relaunch of my blog! I hope you like the new color scheme and layout adjustments. 😀
I successfully completed NaNoWriMo last month, furiously (but not so consistently) writing over 57,000 words on my first novel ever. I have a lot of writing and editing left to do, but I’m enjoying my first steps in the Writing Life!
I am digging myself out of my crazy novel writing frenzy to give this blog the much needed attention it deserves. The literary blogging community is AMAZING and I love being a book blogger. A special thanks goes out to all of my followers who stuck around for my month long hiatus. Thank you dearly friends!
I am putting together some awesome posts for December that I am really excited to share! I will have three separate gift guides coming out in the weeks before Christmas to help you find the perfect gift for the book lover in your life. I am also starting a weekly discussion post called Sipping Coffee where I hope we can have a great conversations about different topics – not all of them book related! The first Sipping Coffee post will be out tomorrow featuring instances when authors use their fame and followership for causes completely unrelated to writing. I would love to hear what you think! I am also using the month of December to get back into photography. I am having so much fun staging my books and trying to figure out bookstagram-ing!
Even though I only posted two book reviews in November, I actually did quite a bit of reading in between all my early morning writing sessions. You will see reviews as I complete them, but I will probably end up not reviewing the Night Angel Trilogy. Last month was actually the third time I have read Brent Week’s debut trilogy and I find it easier to write about books I am reading for the first time. Going back to read an old favorite was like curling up with a security blanket when I started to get stressed about writing.
What books have you read more than once or plan to read again? I have read Ender’s Game at least ten times and have read The Black Jewels Trilogy three times in the past three years! Most books I read I never pick up again, but there are a select few that I will continue to re-read for years. The best books are like old friends. ♡
