I have been part of the bookish community for over 6 years, mainly as a reader and Goodreads reviewer. But after much debate, I decided to enter the bookish world as a book blogger. So on January 12, 2016, I revamped my old blog that I created in 2011 (I only had one post, hahaha), and started sharing my own rants and raves on books and anything book-related. I have loved every step, and I continue to learn things about myself, the community, and the publishing world. Thank you to everyone who has supported my blog, and more importantly, thank you for making me feel so welcome in the book blogging world.
