2019 was the fourth year of gemsbooknook... I set myself some goals for the year and I am so excited to say that I have reached them all. I hoped to write 70 book reviews, get 250 followers and 6000 viewers. I have achieved these goals and more. I also reached my Goodreads goal of 100 books. So I am very happy with how 2019 turned out.

I have kept up with my Facebook page, Twitter account and Instagram account to accompany my blog. I also started a Pinterest account. I have been kept pretty busy with all of these accounts, but I have loved every second. I even participated in my fourth Bookmas, now that was awesome, hard work, but awesome.

I have been reading a Shakespeare play every month. I completely Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, so I have been reading The Voyage Of The Beagle and The Origin Of The Species by Charles Darwin in is place.

I have kept up with my Sunday Sessions post; I have really loved writing them. It is a bit of a wacky idea where I just write what ever I want. From rants, to poetry or whatever else takes my fancy. I am hoping to keep it up in 2020.

If you follow me on Instagram you will have noticed that I have been posting almost everyday. I have Instagram post to accompany my blog posts but I have also been posting Instagram shots on weekdays where I don't have a post going up. They are usually accompanied by a quote by and author and I have loved doing it.

Not only have you all helped me to achieve my blog goals of 2019 but your likes and comments have kept me motivated to do my best with every post or review.

I love being a member of Hachette Books Bloggers database, and I have also continued my work as a contributor on My Trending Stories website.

gemsbooknook wouldn't be what it is without all of you. Thank you so much for your support in 2019, it really has meant the world to me. I look forward to bringing you more content in 2020.

Happy New Year.

<3 Gem
