One-Year Blogoversary and Giveaway

It’s hard to believe, but I started Mommy’s Reading Break one year ago today! I had been writing reviews on Goodreads and thinking about starting a blog, but I ultimately started it so I could participate in Top Ten Tuesday! When I first started, I was obsessed with memes and did 5 per week! Now I’m down to 1-3, depending on the week!

In the last year, I have read 119 books and posted 107 reviews! I’ve done a couple of giveaways and had a couple of discussions.

In the next year, I really hope to continue to grow my blog but to not put so much pressure on myself! No one’s going to like reading my blog if all my reviews suck because I’m stressing myself out to read certain books and so many books per week so that I can have 3 reviews posted each week. This is supposed to be fun, and I have to remind myself of that sometimes!

As a thank you to my followers, I’m doing a giveaway. I really struggled with what I wanted to do, but I think the greatest gift I can give you is a book that I loved, so the way this is going to work is that one winner is going to get to choose to receive a physical or e-copy of any book I’ve rated 4.5 or 5 stars over the past year. To make it easier, I’ll compile a list! (I excluded novellas.)
