About Me, announcement

The Story-eyed family is growing!

I am very excited to tell you all about a new voice you’ll be hearing from very soon! Starting next week, Story-eyed will be hosting more than one opinion on the books and recommendations you wonder about most. We have exciting things planned for the months ahead and I can’t wait to show you all. But first, I am proud to introduce, my friend:

This is China.

(And also her chainsaw.)

She is smart, she is funny, she loves to read, she’s a great writer and cat-mom, and, my favorite thing about her personally, she’s been my friend since before I can remember.

(that’s us)

China and I grew up in the same neighborhood as kids; we spent way too much time playing Barbies, make-believe, and telling stories together. Now, as adults, we’re both still in the story industry: when she isn’t busy hanging out with her handsome cat, Groucho, China has a degree in English and works for the largest branch of our local youth library, here in Kansas City.

I sincerely hope you all enjoy getting to know her as much as I have throughout my life. I am proud and so excited to welcome her to the Story-eyed family! Look for her reviews starting next week, and some exciting site changes too!

Welcome, China! x

It’s here! 🥳

So I have a confession to make…I’ve been working on something secret for a while now.

And now…it’s here!

My gift to you.

What to Read in 2020 is a comprehensive guide of the most anticipated releases from upcoming 2020. Month by month, I’ll be taking you through what the hot new releases will be, what they’re about, and helping you to get organized for your reading year ahead! I’ll be updating this list as the year goes on, and also sending a once monthly newsletter containing more new release announcements and other goodies too! If you’re tired of trying to keep up with what’s new and what to read, then I made this guide for you.

I made this for you, my readers, because…well, because it’s been an amazing year here with you all. I am so grateful for all the support (and follows and likes and shares) that I’ve been given from this community, and also the friends I’ve made along the way. So I wanted to give something back. This list is the start of that new mission here at Story-eyed in 2020.

I never could have guessed, less than a year ago, that this community and so many of the people in it would be such a huge part of my life. Blogging has given me as much as I hope I’ve been able to give you, if not more.

Thank you all for joining me on this journey and thank you for your continued support.

I hope you enjoy this guide and that it’s a small piece of your amazing year ahead.

All of my love. x
