Book Blogging/Reading Life

1. New favorite book blog you discovered in 2012?
Well, I discovered most of the blogs that I follow this year, so it's hard to choose just one!

2. Favorite review that you wrote in 2012?
Um, I don't even know. I don't think any of my reviews are particularly special.

3. Best discussion you had on your blog?
None. My blog lacks discussion.

4. Most thought-provoking review or discussion you read on somebody else’s blog?
I read some really great posts this year, but it was probably something from Parajunkee or Respiring Thoughts.

5. Best event that you participated in?
The Soul Screamers Reading Challenge! Not only did I discover an amazing series, but I won a book, too!

6. Best moment of book blogging in 2012?
Someone buying a book after reading a negative review that I wrote!

7. Most Popular Post This Year On Your Blog?
Besides my 6 Month Blogoversary Giveaway, the post with the most views is my review of ReAwakened.

8. Post You Wished Got A Little More Love?
Any of my reviews, especially of lesser known books.

9. Best bookish discovery?

10.  Did you complete any reading challenges or goals that you had set for yourself at the beginning of this year?
I did complete the TBR Reading Challenge, Immortal Reading Challenge, and the Debut Author Challenge! I didn't set any personal goals.

Looking Ahead…

1. One Book You Didn’t Get To In 2012 But Will Be Your Number 1 Priority in 2013?

2. Book You Are Most Anticipating For 2013?

3. One Thing You Hope To Accomplish Or Do In Your Reading/Blogging In 2013?
I want to review more of the books that I read. I even wrote myself out some generic questions to get my reviews started for books I might get stuck on!


  1. I also put The Night Circus down as most beautifully written book :)

  2. I so wanted to read The Night Circus last year and was never able to get to it. I'll have to make sure to get to it this year.

    Oh, and Clash of Kings....LOVED it ever so much and A Storm of Swords is EVEN BETTER!

    Good luck with your reading goals for 2013


Thanks for taking time to read my post and leave a comment; I really appreciate it! :)
