2018 in Review


Wow, 2018 is over already? Where has the time gone?!

Thanks everyone for sticking with me! This is my second year here on Never Not Reading, and it’s been a truly fantastic one! While I’m a little sad that since mid-August my posts, especially discussion posts, have dropped off a bit, I’m very excited about my future as a librarian. And I super appreciate everyone who has kept reading, even when things got a little slow.

After all, I started this blog for reviews in the first place.
