Reminiscing - 100th post

Reminiscing - 100th post.

Yay. It is the 100th Post for A Circle of Books. I thought about what to write and I was going to write and link about all the people and blogs that I have met since I started A Circle of Books, but I got a headache and mostly it was fear of leaving someone out. Like those awards that are so hard to bestow upon others.

I did take the time to mull over what I like best about blogging. I love linking up on blog tours. I love getting books to preview and review. I love blog hopping to see what everyone is saying about the next book, author, event. I love to get on twitter and watch all the book talk and get that little bit of personal insight into so many blog authors.

I wanted to take time now to direct my focus on reviews. Ideally for me I would like to review minimum four books a month. Ideally eight. I would like to have 2 giveaways each month and I would like to have super fun ones around blog tour time. Like the Paddy giveaway. I can't describe the amount of fun it was to craft him knowing that he was going to travel to a book friend.

I wanted to take time to note some of my favorite reads since I started the blog.

Most recently Galway Bay touched my heart. I will not forget about the struggles of the family and I haven't looked at a potato the same since.

Drood had a big impact on me. It was mesmerizing. I always have a connection to the books that I read with my son also.

The Twilight Series was awesome for me. Me, at 43 reading a vampire love saga.. Who knew? I still have the final book to read and I can not wait!

Anyway.. I just wanted to reminisce a little and make note of 100 posts.

I have a giveaway to post tomorrow. I was supposed to post already but wanted to say something on my 100th post..besides just a giveaway post.

Congratulations on your 100th post! I know what you mean about Galway Bay. I was making potatoes tonight and while I was peeling them I thought about how the potatoes supplied so much nutrition for them before the blight.

Congrats on your 100th post Toni. I too loved the twilight Saga. Wasn't too thrilled with the last book, but loads of other people loved it, which is why I am going to re-read it as I didn't finish it.

The other two books you mention I will be keeping an eye out for. You have me wanting to read them now.

I didn't know you was on Twitter, wanna be friends on there? :)

Toni said...

Yes.. Margo... I want to twitter with you! :)

I just keep coming here to read the nice comments. Thanks everyone. :)
