NCReaderGirl 2014 In Review My Way!

Hello Readers of NCReaderGirl! I hope Everyone had a Wonderful Holiday Season! I can say for certain that we did despite a few hiccups here and there, we just made the best of it, and ran with everything enjoying each day, moment, minute for what it was! We spent both Thanksgiving and Christmas at home in our PJ’s and for that I was absolutely in heaven! ūüėÄ Ha Ha!

Anyhew, I thought I’d do a recap of my year and speak a bit about where 2015 will be taking me!

So first off Through the year I managed to cap out with a total of  35 Book Reviews; 30 Inspirational Posts; 13 and Misc. Posts

Not much honestly by most blog standards that have something new posted almost daily, but hey I manage this one on my own and post when the mood strikes or when I have a review to share!

So for this recap let me share some of my favorite posts again!

Book Review: Goodwill Tour, Paying it Forward; Keith Maginn

This was the 2nd Book by Keith I reviewed and I honestly am in love with his stories and living vicariously through him! Keith’s an Amazing Writer and I highly suggest anyone who has a chance READ his books!

Book Review: Writers of the Future,Vol. 30 as Presented by L. Ron Hubbard

I am pulling this one out as a Favorite because it opened my eyes to a new set of Genre’s of books/short stories and many of those in this book are still sitting on my brain! That and this one, by FAR, was the biggest deal in terms of reviews because it came directly from the publisher, a major publishing house!

Book Review: Effortless Savings: A Step-by-Step Guidebook to Saving Money Without Sacrifice, Richard Syrop

While the book itself wasn’t a favorite of mine – the author’s feedback to the review, while being negative, reminded me why I do what I do – I give honest reviews to books, Period! If an author does not take that criticism to heart and learn from it well then I cannot help them! He just pushed me to remain strong and hold my integrity as a reviewer!

And lastly. Posted December 10th

Girdler 2014 Holiday Newsletter

It has been a whirlwind ride for 2014, and I am looking forward to many more reviews to come in 2015 along with maybe more interaction with the author’s I review and I am even thinking of reaching out to some of them and maybe asking if I can feature some of them here too!!! Until later my friend! Adieu!
