Happy New Year, reader friends! Our exciting announcement is finally here! 2020 marks the beginning of a new bookish adventure but I’ll still be Faithfully Bookish too!
As I mentioned in last summer’s reader update, I’ve been working with Carrie and Annie of JustRead Publicity Tours since last spring. Rachel of Bookworm Mama joined the JustRead team in the fall and today marks the official announcement of our new partnership as co-owners of JustRead Publicity Tours! Head over our JustRead announcement to read all about the team plus learn more about our newest tour type. (btw, the following awesome graphic was created by Carrie and her Knightley. I adore it and my book sisters more than words can say!)
While this new endeavor is not the end of my musings here at Faithfully Bookish, the impact on my available time and priorities is inevitable. Despite a decrease in the number of book reviews shared, it is my hope that by continuing to increase the number of author interviews, fun lists, and giveaways shared, Faithfully Bookish will remain a source of connection and encouragement for readers and authors.
If you’re on Facebook, we’d love to have you in the Hoarding Books Support Group (don’t worry, we fully support hoarding books)! Reader (and author) friends, I appreciate you! May your 2020 be filled with blessings and happy reading!
Two (or more) fortunate Faithfully Bookish reader friends will receive a title of their choice from my book stash! Plus, I will draw two additional reader giveaway winners from the newsletter subscribers! There are about 30 Christian fiction and non-fiction titles to choose from before I donate the rest to local libraries.

Since I effectively fell off the internet after our chat about 2019 Books To Be Read, I’d like to take a quick moment to let y’all know why. In addition to celebrating the holidays with my family, I was sidelined for over a week by a variety of now-familiar bothersome and persistent symptoms (what I suspect to be migraines triggered by our crazy midwestern weather swings and yes, I’ll be talking to my doctor soon).
My Bookstember was hugely disappointing in quantity but I did enjoy three stories of the highest quality and will be sharing those reviews with y’all soon! Rest assured, I still have plans for our usual swoof lists and late 2019 favorites and a comprehensive list of my personal top favorites for 2019.
What’s the first book you’re reading in 2020? I started reading Seconds to Live by Susan Sleeman last night, it is intensely good!
