Welcome To My New Blog!!

It's My Blog's Birthday!!!

 
Today begins it all...
 
 
For a number of years now I have loved the experience of being a reviewer for the wonderful blog Luxury Reading and, more recently, Historical Tapestry. Dipping  my toes into the world of book blogging through these sites has let me learn the nuts and bolts of blogging as well as solidified my love of reading and sharing my thoughts with other bookaholics. Then last year I thought...why not start a blog of my very own? Right after that thought came doubts and worry that I wouldn't be able to do it on my own and that no one would even read it. The more I thought about it, though, the more I realized that this was something I really wanted to do. And here we are!
 
If you're here and reading this I sincerely hope you come back as I review books I love, share guest posts and author and book spotlights and even have a giveaway or two along the way. If you feel so inclined I would love it if you followed me (look on the right hand sidebar for different ways to do so) and if you leave your information in a comment below I would be more than happy to follow you back (heck, I might already be doing so!). Since I'm new at this any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as well. Let me now what you think and I cannot wait to discuss books with all of you!!!
