When I just started this blog, I didn’t even know that it was possible to read books from so many different authors. My reading mentality back then only allowed me to buy and read books from my favorite authors, or re-read all the books I already owned.
I remember how much I loved going to book shops when I was a teenager, browsing through all the new releases, reading the blurb on the back, and then putting the books down just to go and choose something from the author I was already familiar with.
I usually dedicate so much time talking about books, characters, plots, book covers, that the authors, whose valuable time and effort went into all those wonderful books, are left on the side benches waiting for their turn.
This is changing today!
As a way to review my reading in 2018, I compiled 2018 in a Glance page that is already up on my blog. Basically, the idea was the same as last year – to have a graphic representation of a few main information, for example, the total books read, best books of the year, most read genres and so on.
While preparing the end-of-the-year-page, I noticed that I haven’t read that many great books in 2018. However, there were certain authors that were either new to me and I would love to continue reading more from, or authors that were no longer for me, as my reading tastes keep changing every year.
This year has been amazing so far in terms of new genres, new releases and new-to-me authors. There were quite a lot of them that I would like to read more from, considering that their books made it to my 2017 favourites list that I will be sharing with all of you closer to the end of this year.
