It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since I decided to open up this little website on a small corner of the Internet universe. A lot has changed and the blog has evolved in unexpected ways. There’s much I’m grateful for and I wanted to dedicate this post to thank you all and tell you the things I’ve learned by being part of this community!
I KEEP ON LEARNING
The book community is teeming with important discussions every single day. Despite some people labeling some of them as ‘drama’, I’m not one to belittle them. The ongoing conversations on diversity and representation have strengthened my awareness and critical eye on those issues. They have also lead me towards new paths and made me discover new literature and authors—always a plus for a reader hungry for new stories about different people, cultures, and places.
I’ve also learned a little more about the publishing industry in general, about what truly makes a reader, how each of us enjoy reading in different ways, and so much more. Each comment, review, or post here or on other blogs have taught me something new.
WHAT I’M GRATEFUL FOR
I’m truly thankful for the authors who have trusted me with their books for reviewing, and for everyone who dedicates a little of their time to this blog, leaving comments and taking their time to read and respond to the content I put out. Nothing means more to me than to share it all with awesome people like you. That’s why I wanted to say THANK YOU.
When someone reads a book I recommend, trusts my reviews, or discuss with me how they disagree with me on a rating, I understand why I keep blogging. It has changed the way I read for the better.
Though my blogging schedule is a mess, I’m still here and I hope to keep sharing all my bookish thoughts with you! So, here’s for another year filled with more chapter adventures 😉
