Hello lovely people!
So four years ago today, I made this blog (well, I *technically* have posts before that but I was on WordPress and the whole transfer thing was a hot mess)... Ahem. I made this blog as part of a project for uni. Little did I realise the beautiful friends (in real life and online!) or the memories it would create!
There were times (in fact about 2 years) where I wasn't exactly a present blogger. I took A LOT of time off and life got in the way, and I felt so guilty about that. But my love and drive to want to continue blogging has never stopped. I'm so happy to be back :)
If you've been here since 2011 or have just come across my blog today,
I hope you enjoy browsing and thankyou to the moon and back for reading, commenting or stopping by :)
The past 4 years have had it's very high ups, and some very low downs but I'm so very happy and proud of getting to this point at all! Book blogging introduced me to wonderful friends in real life and online and I've been able to have some amazing experiences because of it. Interacting with like-minded people, other bloggers, authors and attending signings and events have all been thanks to that one little uni project I started 4 years ago and entering the book blogging community. I'm so grateful for it all. Aaaand now I'm getting a bit emotional so I'll stop!
