It has been a really great year for me. I started this blog last spring. Actually, my husband gave it to me all ready to go. Little did we know, we had NO CLUE what we were doing. He wanted me to sell sex toys. (Figures, he’s a perv.) The book blog part was supposed to be small, I never wrote long reviews for the books I read (haha–you guys know how much I write now!). But, to be honest, all I cared about was the books! So he set up the blog as part of the Ana’s Attic site, but it never worked right, so I broke it off into Ana’s Diary in June, and here I am now, with so many new friends, that my life has totally changed.
This blog (and of course my family) has by far been my favorite part of the year. YOU GUYS, the people who read what I spend so much time writing, and who take the time to comment and share, mean so much to me. And of course, the books this year have been absofuckinglutely AMAZING.
Over the next few days, I will be posting a lot, including my Top Reads of 2012 (hardest choices ever), my top sellers of 2012, my top sellers for December, Reviews of Hopeless by Colleen Hoover and Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay (both were AMAZING), plus the New Year’s Naughty Blog Hop, The Release Me by J. Kenner Blog Tour, and A Beautiful Lie by Tara Sivec Blog Tour.
In addition to that, I need to unpack, take down the shitload of Christmas decorations, entertain my kids for 6 more days, start a diet and exercise program, and continue to plan the Wicked Girl’s Book Weekend (February 15-18 in Orlando, FL). There will be more……I’m working on more surprises, including a blog redesign this month.
So, in 2012, the world didn’t end (but Twinkies did, which is close), so now we know we have lots of time left to enjoy our lives. What gives me the most enjoyment? My family, reading, and this blog. New year’s resolutions???? I do have to start eating healthier and exercise more. I will start reviewing audiobooks as well, because I will be downloading them so I get off my ass and walk while I read!
So, just for shits and giggles, I feel like giving away two $5 amazon gift cards for the new year, and a copy of Wallbanger by Alice Clayton. Comment here with your favorite book of 2012 or your New Years resolution to be entered to win. Follow the rafflecopter for more opportunities!
Happy New Year!
