As I roam around I'm in awe of all the other book bloggers I come across. Especially those like me with small children in the house (I have two boys ages 8 & 4). These bloggers inspire me in so many ways. I can't thank you guys enough for doing what you do. That goes for all the book bloggers.

My blog didn't start out as a book blog, therefore it was given a generic name and a thrown together look. Not that I don't love my hot pink zebra striped strawberries, but it's time to make some changes. I've thought up some new names and I think "The Lolarific Bookshelf" is in the lead for new blog name.

As far as backgrounds and templates go I've been browsing and have seen a ton I like, but not many that I love. For me it's love or none. So I'll keep looking for now, and I believe over the Independence day holiday you'll see changes here. I hope that you all love them, or at least can tolerate them well. ;)

(I'm hoping to have all the frills when I do make these changes, including an "About Me" section and a section where I can share some of my favorite blogs to read.)

Also I've been winning a few books here and there and will start sharing reviews on those and pics of my actual bookshelves as they fill. Friends and family keep telling me to open a bakery, husband says said bakery will end up having a library. (He's probably not far off with that idea....I'd snack there!)

So hopefully that gives the few of you who do follow something to look forward to.

Have a great weekend ya'll!


  1. Congrats on winning those books, yeah, I saw, at Kate Walker's and Tote Bags too? I think.

    Looking forward to the revamped site!

  2. Thanks for stopping by and entering my giveaway! You have quite a tbr pile on your sidebar....sort of reminds me of my own pile, just sitting and waiting for me. I'll get to them!
    I have a bit of a thing for a strapping Highlander, so I'll be watching for your reviews on the two highlander books I see in the sidebar, Dangerous Highlander and Tamed by a Highlander......they look delish!

  3. No problem Nadja! I have a HUGE TBR pile, physical and wish listed. I'm slowly making my way through them. About half are highlander related and the rest would be historical or paranormal. I will say though, highlanders, highlanders have my heart. There's nothing quite like a kilted man with Scottish brogue. You ken? Lol. If you haven't read them yet the Daughters of the Glen series by Melissa Mayhue come highly highly recommended by me. So far there's 8 books in the series and with every book they just get better and better!

    Nas it's always good to see you here! I've only been actively entering contests since May or so and I'm entirely thankful for every single one I've won. I'm a stay at home mom with two boys and with a single income household it's been really tough making room to actually find the funds for recreational things like books.

    As for the changes, I'm still searching for something that calls out to me as far as backgrounds go, but this one is working for now. The strawberries were just getting to be too loud for me, at least as far as blogging goes. I still think they were pretty!
