Introducing… BRAVE NEW BETTY!

Goodbye, Hello…


I’ve felt weird about writing this post for weeks now, but it’s time! Over the last year I have been exploring new interests and revisiting some old ones. As a result, I have been spending a lot of time on things that aren’t book related. I’ve been trying new recipes in the kitchen, running and working out A LOT, enjoying my family, and learning to make the most of every moment! Of course, I’m still reading (duh.), but I have been happier with a more balanced approach to living my life!

I’m sure you’ve noticed my infrequent blogging schedule over the last couple of months. If not, trust me- it’s been infrequent. I have been enjoying life and brainstorming. With that said, I wanted to let you know that I will no longer be posting on Book Rock Betty.

Don’t freak out.

I’m not leaving LEAVING, but I am changing things up a lot.

At times, book blogging makes me feel like I’m stuck in a box that doesn’t always welcome other aspects of my life. You all know how much I love all things books, but there are a lot of other things in my life that I WISH you knew about! I have been working on a new blog that will focus on a variety of my passions– food, fitness, family, beauty, healthy living, and still a dose of books! I’m really excited about it and hope that you follow me over to the new site! I look forward to sharing more about my life with you, and hope that it will be an avenue for you to share more about YOUR life with me as well.

Thank you for your support over the last few years. I have truly enjoyed talking books, and more importantly, book boyfriends with you. The new blog will be launching tomorrow! Keep your eyes peeled on twitter! I will also post the link on here! Once the new blog is up and running smoothly, if you try to come HERE, you will be redirected THERE.

You guys are the best!
-Betty 😘

BLOG TOUR: The Winner’s Kiss by Marie Rutkoski


Eeeeek!! I can’t even express how excited I am to be a part of this blog tour! Today I get to generate some excitement about the upcoming release of The Winner’s Kiss AND share one of my favorite literary kisses!

This is hands down one of my favorite series of all time. In fact, I keep the books on a shelf above the TV/fireplace in my living room because that is my FIREBOX! If you’ve been on my blog before, you know what that means! For those of you that don’t know this, the FIREBOX is the highest rating I can give to a book, and I do not give it out very often!

The Winner’s Curse blew my mind.

The Winner’s Crime broke my heart.

The Winner’s Kiss healed my soul.
