Blog 7th Birthday!

As of this posting, Miss Print is seven years old. I say this every year, but I still can’t believe it’s been so long. It should go without saying at this point, but I really wouldn’t be here without you, dear readers. So thank you again for making it so enjoyable to run this blog.

This year in particular I’ve made a lot of new blogger friends and feel like I’ve really found my place as a blogger and reviewer (including getting the blog on facebook) so thank you for reading and joining me on this journey.

Here’s to another great year!

I’ll leave you with some end of year statistics (cumulative):

Total Pages: 7 (with new and improved navigation for my review indices!)

Total Posts: 1294 (+234)

Categories: 16 (New: Week in Review and Miss Print’s Re-Prints and Let’s Talk the latter two of which are forthcoming)

Total Comments: 1304 (+267)

Total views: 130,294–110,089 (roughly 20,205 views over the past year. A little less than last year but still humbling and awesome.)

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I’m Not Sure I Want to Read

Top Ten Tuesdays img by Miss Print

Top Ten Books I’m not sure I want to read (by which I mean these aren’t even really on my TBR list so you have to work really hard to convince me to change my mind):

(While you’re here, help me celebrate my blog birthday by reading my birthday post–after noon–and entering my birthday giveaway!)

  1.  A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin: I’ve heard they’re incredibly violent and incredibly not diverse. Add to that the series is really long in terms of books and pages and I can call it a pass.
  2. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon: This sounds great in theory but again I’m resistant on a fundamental level to enormous page counts and series that extend beyond 5 books.
  3. Maze Runner by James Dashner: Do I need this in my life?
  4. The Waking Dark by Robin Wasserman: I love Robin Wasserman but I heard this was super scary so I am worried!
  5. Let’s Get Lost by Adi Alsaid: I’ve heard mixed things! What are your thoughts?

That’s actually it because anything else I’ve elected to skip I feel pretty strongly about and anything else I have in the TBR pile I’m pretty committed to.
