Hello! Welcome to Read Me Away! My name is Anahera (a.k.a Ana) and my old book blog was Anahera Reads. I decided to move to a completely new blog while leaving my old blog for the new year. I was very active on AR when I first started but as other commitments and responsibilities came in, I started getting less and less active until my blog was practically dead. I even missed out on doing some awesome events. 😦 Since it was going to be 2014 soon, I decided that my book blogging ways need a fresh start.
Hence, Read Me Away was born! The name is a play on “fly me away” because of my wishes to travel. I’ve traveled to a fair few places in my life but there are many more places I want to go! My current header features a passport with stamps from certain fantasy locales. 😉 Big hug for you if you can identify the books featuring these locations! When I read a book, I feel like I’m transported to a new world. I travel through words and pages, crossing into dreams and ideas, and coming out with cool memories. Such is the magic of books!
With the new book blog, I hope I can cultivate some good blogging habits. I used to try to update every single day, participate in as many memes as I could, and shoot content into my blog as fast as I could. Now, I want to relax a bit more. I still have many things I want to post about but I don’t want to pressure myself into posting them every day. After all, the whole reason I started book blogging was just to chill out and have fun. 🙂
Of course, Anahera Reads is still accessible and will continue to be mainly for archive purposes. 😛
So what’s coming up on Read Me Away this month? Well, I still have a few books in my to-be-read (TBR) pile! Some of which I have had in there since the tail end of 2013, ahem.
- The Immortal Rules (Julie Kagawa): My wonderful friend, Charlotte @ Gypsy Reviews, gave this to me for Christmas! Thank you so much, my dear! 😀 I’ve heard a lot about this series so I’m very excited to be getting into it.
- The Grimm Legacy (Polly Shuman)
- A Tale Dark & Grimm (Adam Gidwitz)
- Chime (Franny Billingsley)
- The Help (Kathryn Stockett)
My digital bookshelf is no less crowded, unfortunately. Looks like I’ll be holding off on making book purchases. Or at least try to. 😛
- The Emperor’s Edge series (Lindsay Buroker): I won this lovely set from Paola and Alix @ A Novel Idea! As a huge fan of fantasy, I feel so thankful that I won this.
- The Moon Dwellers (David Estes)
- Perception (Viviana Ware)
- Suddenly Royal (Nichole Chase)
- Darkspire Reaches (C.N. Lesley)
So that’s what Read Me Away is starting with! Here’s hoping for a great year ahead! Happy New Year, everyone!
