Where have I even been right?
I don’t have an answer but certainly not here. Fall isn’t normally so busy for me! I usually have way more time to read and blog and chill. These days I’m forced to be social which is exhausting.
I’m trying to cobble together some posts but it’s definitely been a challenge. Not because I haven’t read anything worth discussing – I have. Girl at War, Killing Monica, The Martian, and The Hiltons: The True Story of an American Dynasty have all been post worthy. And I swear I will post about some of those soon.
Today though, we celebrate.
It’s been four years since I started this blog!
Four years of blogging about books! Four years of talking about books with other readers! Four years of connecting with other book bloggers who have introduced me to books I probably never would have looked for, who have challenged me to read broader and more diversely.
I started blogging about books because I wanted to talk about books all the time. I mean, I pretty much do that in real life but my audience isn’t always so appreciative. That’s more like “yeah yeah, Eva. We get it. You read all the time.” But you guys, you guys get it. You encourage it.
Blogging has given me permission to embark on The Great Harry Potter Re-Read and the Green Gables Readalong. It’s allowed me to chat with authors and read their work before it’s been released – a real thrill for this hardcore book nerd. I will happily die crushed under the weight of all the incredible books that currently live with me.
The book blogging community is filled with some of the most brilliant, wonderful, amazing and creative people. I’ve long admired so many of you and continue to get a thrill from the interactions with you all. If you’ve recently started following me or you’ve been here for a while, I thank you. I started this blogging thing for myself but it’s so much better knowing I have some peeps to share it with.
