2012 Highlights

With 2012 almost gone, I thought it might be fun to put together some highlights of the year.

I moved to WP.org and got a blog redesign (which I still love, nearly a year later even though I’ll redesign soon).

Kelly started contributing two to three reviews every month for me.

On a Book Bender turned ONE and we had a good party.

Kelly and I hosted three Bout of Books read-a-thons, one Doin’ It Dirty read-a-thon, and two challenges (All Series, All Summer and Unbreaking the Shelves).

I helped launch the Midwestern Book Bloggers site.

The giraffe shifter was born.

I stalked Kelly, Ruby, Hannah, Jess, Mandi, Tara, Amy, Jenny, Kristilyn, and Sarah. Then I took December off because, dammit, I am exhausted from all that awesome.

Kelly and I started Great Literary Adventures, where we review oddball erotica books and snark about them.

I joined Kristilyn’s Reading in Winter (After Dark) blog as a contributor. Then Kristilyn decided to close that blog and Kelly and I started Free Books Need Love, Too.

I hit and surpassed my Goodreads challenge goal for 2012. Thanks, novellas!

What were some highlights in YOUR year?

  1. Well, I met you this year so that was awesome! A great reading year, too.

    Love your Great Literary Adventures — though I’m not sure how you make it through some of those books. *shudder* Happy New Year!

  2. You, Kelly and your Great Literary Adventures are quite possibly my new favorite thing ever. My snark loves your snark and wants to join in. You’ll have to let me know how your Christmas pounding book ended up ;-)

    I think you had a fantastic year! I can’t wait to see the craziness you bring next year!!!

  4. I’m a little jealous of your great year! :D Mine has been a lot of slumps and stress, but I’m still going strong which is the main thing. So all in all, my highlights were the people. I’ve got myself some solidly fantastic book blogging friends now and I adore them all!
