Hello everyone! I know I haven’t done a Top 10 Tuesday (or even a Top 5 Wednesday) in some time, but I’m back at it now in 2020! I figured I’d bring back some consistency to help me keep up with my 2020 Bookish Resolutions.
Today’s Prompt is Bookish Discoveries I made in 2019, and oooh, am I excited! Let’s get into this list… which is a bit short because I couldn’t think of 10 things this week! Oops!
1. Blog Tours
If you’ve been following my blog for a bit, or if you just glance at my homepage, you’ll know that I love blog tours! Getting to participate in the promotional campaign for a brand new book is so fulfilling! I participated in my first one in 2019!
2. Ignite English
You might have seen me blab about Ignite English on my Instagram account, or maybe you’ve seen my rep code at the bottom of my blog posts… or maybe you’re new here and you have no idea what I’m talking about. Whatever the case may be, I became a rep for the Ignite English Subscription box in January 2019, and I’ve been genuinely blown away by their boxes and how sweet the owner is!
3. My Passion For Designing Book Covers
I’ve never mentioned it on this blog or my social media accounts, but I love designing book covers for fun! I’m actually hoping to become a book cover designer in the future, so sometimes I just remake preexisting covers for fun! Maybe someday I’ll post some on here!
4. Reading Planners
In late 2019, I received a reading planner in my November Owlcrate, and it’s literally everything now! I use it to track the books I’ve read and what I thought about them, pages read, and of course, deadlines for things like Blog Tours and Rep Searches.
5. The Ins and Outs of the Publishing Industry!
I had an internship at Sourcebooks over the summer, which was the highlight of my year (and quite possibly my life!) I learned so much about so many things, and I really hope to return there someday for a full time job!
