I started blogging in June of 2013. Hard to believe it's been four years already! For this week's Top Ten post, I decided to share ten books that I loved during that first year of blogging. Looking through my Goodreads list, I discovered that I had way more than ten books that I could have shared - and I think I can chalk such a good year of reading up to the blogging world in a lot of ways. I was never one to care all that much about the shiny new releases, which meant that I probably wouldn't have discovered The Night Circus or Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore - at least not until running across them on the library shelves years down the road. So many of the books I've loved over the past four years have been ones I've discovered through reading your blogs. Thanks for all the reviews and recommendations! My reading life is better because of you!
My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
