10 Year Blogiversary Celebration!

1 Nov

I can hardly believe it has been 10 years since I started blogging! 10 years of books, authors, bloggers, and all the bookish goodness I could find. November is going to be one long party! I have lined up some friends to help me celebrate with guest posts about their publishing journeys, books they love, the blogging life, and much, much more. See the schedule below.


Of course you can’t have a party without gifts, so I am gifting one of my readers a big box of books and bookish swag. The box includes nonfiction, a variety of fiction genres, and even a cookbook! Some of the books are brand new, others are ARCs, and some are gently read. To enter the giveaway, just leave me a comment. (Please US residents only.)


I have to give a big thank you to all those who have read my blog over the years. Your encouragement to me is very appreciated. I have loved every minute of the blogging journey, and I count you all as great fellow travelers.

    Congratulations on your 10th Blogiversary!! I don’t think I could do that in a million years. I do have a website, but I mainly post my reviews there for mostly people I know to read. Keep up the good work. I wish you many more years as a blogger. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity and good luck everyone.

    I love books and reading them both educates and relaxes me. I also love Christian fiction as God always uses what the characters are learning about Him in growing my faith and understanding of how God works in our lives! Congrats on 10 years of blogging about books!

  23. Sharon Hula November 5, 2019 at 8:12 am #

    Your blog is so informative, thanks so much for posting it. Sarah Sundin is one of my favorite authors. Looking forward to reading the third book in this latest series of hers!
