Is this a book review? Jump to the Quick Review

Another month in 2014 almost gone and a few weeks closer to my 1st Blogoversary. Sitting here in October, I would never have imagined that I would have posted over 40 book reviews and be AHEAD on writing those reviews. The next review I write will post in 2015.

Over the next month I’m working on developing a challenge with Julie and Rose over at Be on the lookout for that in November. And I’ve started thinking about some kind of giveaway for my Blogoversary. Not sure what it will involved yet, but if you have ideas, suggestions or advice, please share in comments!

The State of Second Run Reviews
As of October 1, 2014, here where things stand with Second Run Reviews. I really love seeing the love on Facebook and Twitter. It’s been fun promoting authors and other bloggers via social media.

So how are you doing with your reading goals? Right now I’m all caught up on my commitments for reviews and am enjoying the books I have already purchased.

If you are a blogger, what’s the state of your blog? Any big goals you have for the next month?

    • I have no idea where it went. To think I’ve been blogging for nearly a year and when I started, I thought I’ll never have anything to say outside of “I liked this book.” and “I didn’t like this book.” It’s kind of mind boggling!

  1. Only a year? But I have a feeling like it’s been much longer. 🙂

    Unfortunately, Tanja and I will have to write a lot of reviews and other posts to fill out rest of the year. I envy your organization skills.

    • Yes, I started actively posting in January of this year! It seems so much longer.
