Word Revel (formerly Dudette Reads) was born on 12th June 2013. This means today marks the very first blogoversary!I’m so excited about about this because I had no idea where this blog was going. Truth be told, I still don’t know where it is going but I do know that I am here to stay. The past year of book blogging has brought a lot of fun and many more books into my life. I also met some of the loveliest people through blogging, so I’m immensely grateful for that as well!
Amazingly, I’ve read more than a hundred books (121, if you care) since I wrote my first blog post on Dudette Reads. In 2013, I read 68 books while in 2012 I read 30. Exceeding a hundred has seemed very much unthinkable to me in the the past few years because I’ve always found ways to make myself busy. But somehow surrounding myself (virtually) with so many book lovers pushed me into making use of all the pockets of time I still had to read. All my life I’ve loved books and reading, so it’s a pleasant surprise to me that that love has grown even more over the past year.
As it is, I want to thank my lovely friends and followers for making my entrance into the book blogosphere such a wonderful experience, and I hope that we’ll continue to celebrate books together for a long time to come!
PS: Watch this space. Something new is coming your way over the next few days ;)
