2023 Annual Wrap-Up

*Obligatory post intro here about how I can’t believe it’s already the end of the year*

I did not do a good job of taking care of myself in 2023, y’all. I worked too much for not enough reward, and I completely slacked off on my hobbies and fun bookish “commitments”. I put commitments in quotes because yes, reading and this blog are just for fun, but also I prefer to stay on top of pub dates and ahead of trends, and that just did not happen this year. I posted so few spoilers (huge thank-you here to Torrie for writing almost as many posts as I did!) and really just let the whole blog slack off. The same went for my Bookstagram and review-writing, but thankfully not for my reading. I just didn’t feel like writing reviews or spoilers after I finished a book! I would just instantly pick up the next one, instead of taking the time to reflect on and appreciate the book I had just finished.

I would say I’m going to do better in 2024, but honestly, who knows. I’m planning a wedding for this summer, so as we get closer I am definitely going to be spending less time reviewing books and making blog posts. What I hope, though, is that at times like this when I’m motivated to post, I can be better about scheduling a bunch of posts so you all always have fresh new content and can find the spoilers you’re looking for. I have a lot of backlist spoiler notes jotted down that I will be forming into full posts, and for now I’ll be doing my best to stay on top of 2024 releases.

If there’s anything you’d like to see here, please let me know!

I haven’t found a fun way yet to do end-of-year wrap-ups. I personally prefer to see book covers, but I don’t have an expeditious way of adding a bunch of covers and review links. What do you think of this layout?

(The book covers in the images are clickable too, for the books I have posts for!)
