Wow. Of Pens and Pages is finally a year old!
I started a blog a year ago (Pride, Prejudice, and Stories) to post photo collages inspired by my favorite Pride & Prejudice books and fan-fiction, and recommend some of the ones I’ve recently read. I never thought that that small Tumblr blog would turn into something much more.
Reading and book blogging helped me through some tough times—specifically depression and losing a close friend. I’m not sure I would have handled it as well as I did if I didn’t have this blog to distract me. Not only did it help me keep my head up, it gave me the chance to discover books I never thought I’d enjoy, talk to amazing authors I never imagined would acknowledge or be aware of my existence, meet bloggers I never knew could change my life, and join a wonderful community I never expected would be so open and welcoming.
To the readers, authors, bloggers, and friends, if you’re reading this now…
My life has become more colorful because of you. I know I have a long way to go, but I promise to stay as honest and hard-working as last year. Maybe even more.
To thank you for visiting the blog and taking the time to read my reviews, I have a few giveaways this month, including a signed paperback of one of my all-time favorite books!
To start off this month-long celebration, I am giving away one (1) $20 Amazon GC to one reader. Ends on May 14th, 2017, 12:00 AM EST. Open international.
