September is our 5 month blogaversary !
In the summer of 2011 the last Harry Potter movie came out, some show called Games of Thrones premiered on HBO, Where She Went by Gayle Foreman won the 2011 Goodreads Choice Award for Best YA and a little blog called Books and Sensibility was created. At the time Jess and I were recent college grads looking for jobs and thought it might be fun to create a Cleolinda-esque blog about The Mortal Instruments. Instead, we ended up stumbling into the community of YA book bloggers and never turned back.
Over the last few years blogging for me has become less about being a blogger and more about connecting with other readers and making myself read. I think if I didn’t have a blog I’d probably never read.
In celebration, we’re giving away one set of of mini princess magnetic bookmarks from The Sticker Alley ! Bonus: This giveaway is international !

I’m a lifelong reader who started blogging about YA books in 2011 but now I read in just about every genre! I love YA coming of age stories, compelling memoirs and genre bending SFF. You can find me talking all things romance at Romance and Sensibility.
