My book experiences in 2014

I can't believe 2014 is almost over. Time flies by so fast! I had a lot of crazy things happening to me and to be honest, I had some rough moments (school etc). So I'm glad that's behind me.

The good thing about 2014 were my reading experiences. I always loved reading, but this year I picked up my love for books on a completely new level. In the beginning of 2014, I set the challenge of reading 100 books in one year. I remember a friend saying to me I was insane for doing this. That it was impossible. And I proved her wrong, I'm super proud of myself, because I ended up reading even more! I read 119 books this year!



Plus, I've been #1 reviewer in Belgium for a while now! This is freaking unbelievable and I'm secretly very proud of myself. I didn't win anything, but just the feeling. Aaah, so good! ;) PS: If we're still not friends on GR: add me!! I'd love to see what your reading ;)



In May, I also started my book related instagram. An insane amount of people are following me on there and I'm so grateful for this. I love my bookstagram! I love the way I can share what I'm reading and interacting with other booklovers. I received so much love from these people. They helped me getting through the hard moments I had this year. This may sound a little cliché, but this bookstagram truly kept me going. It made me feel good and less 'alone' when I had a hard day.


Then, in August, I finally started another little thing I've always wanted: my book blog. I enjoy editing and writing the posts a lot. I still don't have a lot of followers and I'm sure only 3 or 4 people read my blog regularly, but I don't care. I enjoy doing it. Especially the blog tours, cover reveals and the other promotional posts. I also had the opportunity to read some amazing ARC's and communicate with super lovely authors!

So overall I had quite an amount of good things in 2014! I hope to be able to keep all those things going for a long time!

What were your good moments this year? Feel free to share anything with me!
