Bookanistas: My First Bookanista Post

My time away from the blog was a little longer than I expected, but scheduling posts isn't really a priority when you are having an awesome (awesome, awesome) vacation. But I do want to pop in to share some fun news.

I'm thrilled to report that I have been invited to join the ranks of The Bookanistas!


If you aren't familiar with The Bookanistas, they are a fabulous group of talented writers who share positive reviews of books they have loved every Thursday. I love their Nothing But Love philosophy, and I've been posting my positive reviews every Thursday in my Book Love feature anyway, so this is a  perfect match. Plus, this is such a fantastic group of writers, and I am so excited to join up with them. 

I'll be coming at you guys with some brand new rave reviews starting next week (I've read so many good books lately), but for now I just wanted to share the good news. 

Check out what the other Bookanistas (including some of the other new members) have going on this week:

LiLa Roecker adores AUSTENTATIOUS
Christine Fonseca is wild about WOLFSBANE
Stasia Ward Kehoe gives cover love to GETTING SOMEWHERE
Nikki Katz takes a shine to UNDER THE NEVER SKY
Katy Upperman is dazzled by A MILLION SUNS
Shannon Messenger welcomes four wonderful new Bookanistas
Gennifer Albin joins the Bookanistas with a great giveaway

Tracy Banghart is wowed by ON FORTUNE’S WHEEL

    1. Don't feel bad! There is nothing wrong with critical reviews (as long as they aren't mean)...it's just something I've been trying to move away from.
