  1. I would like to honor your great and outstanding reviews. Keep up the great work in the future and thanks for the chance to win.

  2. Happy 4th Blogiversary! 😀 I find the font/colors you use to be soothing and easy to read. In addition to the book reviews, I like the addition of movie reviews as well because I tend to be out of the loop on those! Lastly, of course the giveaways are also awesome!

    • I’m glad to hear you find the font and colors soothing and easy to read. That is what I was going for. I’ve visited blogs that are hard to read, hard to find things, and don’t look nice, so I wanted to be more. ^_^ I’m glad you enjoy the book reviews and like the addition of movie review. I’m out of the loop on them. I wait for movies to come out then I get them from the library. It’s just so expensive now to visit the movies. And, yes giveaways are always awesome!

  3. Happy Blog Anniversary, here’s to many more to come! I like how I’m learning about many new to me authors and their great books here! The giveaways are great too!

    • Welcome Sabina. Their is nothing like a real book in your hands. The eReader is fabulous, but I do agree having a real book is sometimes better. I enjoy both ways and have also discovered audiobooks too. I hope you enjoy the reviews. I most feature PNR and UF on the blog, but I do through other genres in now and then. I try read other genres besides my favorites. Have a great day and good luck in the giveaway!

  37. I appreciate the varied genres of books that you review. I had a person say to me once, if you like “a certain author” then no wonder you’re so weird. I almost wanted to slap them. I guess they don’t realize how many authors are out there and what libraries are for. Congrats on your 4 years 🙂

    • I try to branch out on my genres. I’m a PNR and UF girl, but I find other authors and genres interesting and so I try. They may not always work out, but I tried. I know! Their are so many authors out their and so much to choice from. I didn’t realize until I started blogging all the different stuff is out their in the book world. The Library is great for trying new things. Thank’s Jan.

    • So glad to hear you enjoy the articles, recipes and honest reviews. I find it more helpful when a reviewer who doesn’t like a book shares what they liked and didn’t.
