The Hardcover Lover's Year End Review (2015)

Say goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016! I can't believe another year is gone, and that here we are, starting again with a new one.

Last year, I decided to do a yearly wrap-up post even though I had only been blogging for a few months. I really enjoyed reflecting on my year of reading and sharing everything with you, so I'm doing it again this year.

I'm going to expand on last year's post by including a few more updates, so grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and prepare to rewind with me!

New Year, New Look

At the beginning of the new year, many of us make resolutions. They might be to be more active, to lose weight, to work more, to work less, really anything.

Bloggers also make resolutions, and I have decided to make a few for 2016. This year, one of my blogging resolutions is to bring you more consistent posts and a more consistent look, and that involved another blog redesign. (I swear that this is the last one!) With this redesign, everything, and I mean everything will match! Headers for memes and features will match the theme of my entire blog, and I really think it will be a more user-friendly look.

So if you love the new look, be sure to drop by Mischievous Reads so you can let Blessie know what you think! (You can also leave a comment here, and I'll be sure to pass them along to her!) She really listened to me, and added her own thoughts to bring you this beautiful design, and I can't thank her enough! I'm so in love with this new theme, and I can't wait to know what you all think.
