After five years of blogging, sometimes it’s hard to come up with new ideas. So much has changed over the years, including my blogging style, many times over, and I’ve gotten so much more into taking photos and posting on Instagram as a part of my love of books and bookish merch!
In an attempt to keep things interesting and fun, I wanted to started a little something new for me where I take a post that I had originally shared on Instagram — or “bookstagram” for those in the book community — and took it a little further in a blog post. There’s a limited number of characters that you can share on Insta and the point of those posts is more to get to the point, rather than writing a whole narrative, but sometimes each post deserves a few extra words, and “As Seen on Instagram” is a fun way for me to do that!

I’m so excited to share my top reads again this year with the annual Top 12 countdown!
This countdown was originally started by @_livelaughread and @bookswrotemystory on Instagram and the rest of our group joined in so now the five of us (including @meganthemeganerd and @bibliotrix.lestrange) are joining in! The countdown has already begun but anyone is welcome to join in with their favorites of the year too!
My reading year was kind of a hodgepodge of genres but it’s been a lot of fun really exploring how my reading tastes have changed! I have a large amount of adult novels on my list and the YA books that I do have on my list are the ones that have really been marketed and cross-promoted to adults as well. It’s been curious seeing what were my best reads of the year and I’m really starting to move away from a lot of YA!
I can’t wait to share the rest of my favorite reads of the year! I’m looking forward to doing a full recap once the year is over too!
What are your favorite books from 2019? Do you do anything special to share them at the end of the year?
