Here's to 3 Years!

385 reviews. That’s quite a lot huh? A little over a year! It’s actually taken me 3 years to reach that many… yep! Today’s The Movieholic and Bibliophile’s 3 year blogiversary! I still can’t believe I’ve been at this three whole years now. Blogging (sometimes even reading) and I have had our ups and downs but I seem to always come back.

I did an extensive post last year for my second blogiversary talking about some of my first reviews and commenters. I think I’ll talk a bit about some of my favorite reviews this year. One of the first was The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson which is surprising because I didn’t actually like the book all that much! Oh and my review for Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston, Inkheart by Cornelia Funk (I still haven’t managed to get around to finishing that story…), and the ones I did that are Wonderland related like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll, and The Looking Glass Wars & Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor.

Thank you again loyal readers for standing by me for so long and I love my new readers too. Here’s to many more years reviewing and blogging!

Recently I’ve been thinking of doing some re-reading of Stephen King’s books (The Stand is my favorite!) and I’d love everyone’s input about which one they’d like to see me review. Oh, and I occasionally re-read books in a series of which I have already reviewed later ones, should I go back and review the earlier ones?

  1. Happy blog anniversary!

    I haven't really read any Stephen King so I wouldn't mind seeing review of any of them. As for the series books, I say review what you want, but reviewing the earlier books could help those who haven't read any decide whether to start the series.

  8. Congrats, Jen! Yay! 3 years! Has it been that long? Wow.

    Keep the great reviews coming. I've not read The Stand, but it's in my to be read pile. I'd love to see a review of that to get me more excited to read it. After hating The Cell, I've stopped reading King.

  11. Happy anniversary,Lady Tink! The Stand is one of my favorites,too(both versions)but I vote for Carrie,mainly because the movie's been showing up on cable quite a bit lately and my sister and I got to talk about it in depth.

    The changes from book to screen are interesting,particularly due to Carrie being King's first novel so it's really a showcase for his talent in the raw:)

  14. Congrats on 3 years! Sorry I'm so late with this. I've been horrible with my blog reading. I'm planning on reading The Stand too - I want to go back and read his older stuff - it was so good.
