The Readathon 15 Year Blogiversary Celebration!!

It's The Readathon's 15 Year Blogiversary Celebration!!

I am excited to invite you to The Readathon’s 15 Year Blogiversary Celebration! Can you believe it?!?! I have been reviewing books for 15 years today! I started with a humble Blogger blog and have since graduated to an actual website. It’s been quite a ride!

I posted my first book review on April 16, 2009. I reviewed The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families by Stephen R. Covey. As you can see, my reviews were much more simple and not as pretty back then. I actually updated that review when I moved to my website. You can see the updated and prettier review HERE

The most current review I posted was my review for The Orchids of Ashthorne Hall by Rebecca Anderson, which I posted earlier this morning, April 16, 2024. It has been so fun to share my love of reading with all of you for 15 years!!

15 Year Blogiversary Celebration First and Most Current

 

To continue The Readathon’s 15 Year Blogiversary Celebration, I thought I’d share some stats with you all. My main takeaway: I’ve read and reviewed a lot of books in 15 years!!

15 Year Blogiversary Celebration Stats 1

  15 Year Blogiversary Celebration Stats 2

Pretty crazy, right?? I’ve reviewed 638 books in my 15 years of book blogging. Some years I’ve reviewed more than others, and that’s ok. In those 15 years my family has undergone a lot of trials, I’ve gone back and taught school, and I’ve come home again. The last six months have been really hard on me, for some reason. For the first time in my life I’ve been in a reading slump. I had NO desire to read. At all. I would go weeks at a time without picking up a book (which is very uncharacteristic of me). My mental health hasn’t been great, and I think I’ve been a bit depressed. Thankfully, I think I’m beginning to come out of it. Just in time to celebrate The Readathon’s 15 Year Blogiversary! Hopefully I’ll keep improving and fully regain my desire to read.   

To make this 15 Year Blogiversary even better, I’m hosting a giveaway on Instagram! I will be giving away a copy of the first book I reviewed and the most current book I reviewed. The giveaway is not associated with Instagram. Go enter today! The two winners will be picked on Friday, April 19, 2024. Good luck!
