New favorite book blog discovered in 2016?
Favorite review written in 2016?
My dislike of Ready Player One brought all the comments, so that was fun.
Best discussion/non-review post on your blog?
All of my Five Fandom Friday posts. I enjoy sharing snippets of my geekiness with you guys, and learning about your geekiness in return.
Best event that you participated in?
Best moment of bookish/blogging life in 2016?
Moment? Every swap. Raised spirits, bit o’ joy, book recommendation, total love.
Most challenging thing about blogging or your reading life this year?
Trying to find balance between blogging, business, reading, managing my illness, job stresses, kitten care, and wedding planning. This is the struggle that led to stepping away from Page a Vu and shuttering Chaotic Goddess Swaps, as well as blogging less often.
Most Popular Post This Year On Your Blog (whether it be by comments or views)?
Dia & Co. Unboxing vlog, with 71 views.
Post You Wished Got A Little More Love?
The Color Wheel and Makeup. Only because it’s truly an educational post, but got buried. I get it- color theory is boring. 😉
Best bookish discovery?
Did you know Amazon offers some indie ebooks at $0, for limited time frames? Yeah, I JUST discovered that this year.
Did you complete any reading challenges or goals that you had set for yourself at the beginning of this year?
Yep, the Audiobook Challenge, TBR Pile Reading Challenge, Bookish BINGO, Story Sprites (until they ended it), and of course, Goodreads reading challenge.

One Thing I Hope To Accomplish In My Reading/Blogging Life In 2017
Finish a series I’ve started and loved.
I’m a coffee-fueled, hobby-addicted bibliophage who makes cruelty-free mineral eye shadows (inspired by novels). I’m usually in front of a screen (writing, reading, or gaming), but I’ve been known to emerge for geekery, good food, and dark chocolate.
