Happy 1 year Blogiversary!!

Hey Hey Hey!! it was a year ago today that I started this blog that has meant so much to me. I admit to being a bit late with posts and reviews but it is my goal to do a better job this coming year. I enjoy this little haven of mine that has introduced me to many amazing books and people and I look forward to what this coming year will bring. I wish everyone a great day :)

THANK YOU!!

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
