Your Blogging/Bookish Life

New favorite book blog/Bookstagram/Youtube channel you discovered in 2019?

I have done a terrible job keeping up with the bookish community this past year. Maybe that’s why I was affected by so many reading slumps – I wasn’t keeping myself hyped up.

Best moment of bookish/blogging life in 2019?

Probably when I finally reach over 1000 followers on my blog. I don’t really promote it a whole lot so it’s been nice to see it grow so much this year.

Most challenging thing about blogging or your reading life this year?

My reading life took a bit of a hit this year from going into so many random reading slumps, which has really affected my will to actually post regularly. It’s something I’m really hoping to not have an issue with this coming year.

  1. Oh, I wish I could have read all those books in 2019. I was more focused on romance and set aside YA and Fantasy for a while. Looks like I need to add some titles on my TBR. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Loved reading your list! I haven’t read Priory of the Orange Tree but heard great things about it. I’m sorry it was a miss for you! I totally agree with you on Lifelik3! That book was amazing! I haven’t read the second book yet but I plan to read it next month. I’m also excited for Aurora Burning!
