It's Time...For a Very Exciting Change!



Two and half years ago, after some friends on Goodreads told me I should write reviews, I decided to take it one step further and start a book blog.  In all honesty, I thought it would last maybe a couple of months.  I never imagined I would blog for so long.

When I first started, it was all about the books - I didn't really care who read my blog, I was happy to just post reviews and have a record of what I'd read and how I felt about it.  But the longer I blogged, the more I realised it wasn't just about books - it was about people.  I've met some amazing, wonderful, funny, kind and passionate readers over the last two years, and I've never ever felt so at home in a community as I have in the book blogging community.

However, since my return from Australia at the beginning of this year, I've found it difficult to motivate myself to blog.  And so when an amazing opportunity to co-blog came my way, I instantly jumped on it - and from there, everything has fallen perfectly into place.

So, as of today, I will be joining April at My Shelf Confessions as co-blogger.  April and I have already found we have so much in common and it's going to be amazing.

Thank you to every single person who has supported me here, The Aussie Zombie will remain as a record of  what I've read, and who I was for so long, but please come and join me and April at My Shelf Confessions - it's going to be a blast!
