Earlier in the month, Lauren did an amazingly heart-warming post for her first day as host for Bookending Winter called ‘Warming your winter’ where she looked back at her blogging friendships during 2018 and shared their posts. I was honestly so touched when I read through Lauren’s post and saw my name mentioned in it, it really did warm my winter.
I really wanted to do my own post so I could spread the love to my own lovely blogging friends who have seriously made this year incredible. I never thought that I would make such amazing friends through blogging and I’m so grateful to all of you for making this year so incredible.
Solid Blog Squad
I have been super fortunate to have these wonderful people in my life and having them around is honestly one of the best parts of blogging. These are some of my favourite people on the internet – I can always count on their comments to make me smile and look forward to seeing what creative new content they come up with every time I log on. Thanks for all being great ❤

One of the best things about blogging is constantly meeting new people and building up friendships (usually through freaking out over the same books). These are some of the great people I’ve met this year and who I’m looking forward to talking with more throughout 2019 ❤

Cool Event Peoples
Last, but definitely not least, are all of my wonderful friends I’ve met & hung out with at various events this year. Most of these friends aren’t book bloggers but are still very cool and I wanted to take the time to give them a shout out. Many of them are people who truly keep me going, support me through all my ups and downs, and made my 2018 shine.
