So my blogiversary came and went in May and I completely forgot about it. I’ve been blogging for two years now, though it feels like I’ve been at it for longer… maybe it’s because my memories of pre-blogging days have gotten a bit faded at the edges, or because I’ve had a lot happen in the past two years (including moving to a new country!)… or just because I just have a terribly distorted concept of time.
Regardless, it has been 2 years, so as I usually do on my blogiversary (well, I did it last year, so I may as well make a tradition out of it), I’ve put together a list of the most popular posts on Thoughts on Fantasy from the past 12 months:

My favourite post
This is my favourite post because I learnt a lot in the process of putting the post together, and I’ll never look at a fantasy cover without analysing it or recognising these features again. Also I just love pretty book covers, so I had fun finding them, admiring them and assembling them for this post.
It’d be no fun blogging if I didn’t have the encouragement of other readers, writers and bloggers, so thank you so much to everyone who has commented on, liked, shared or read my posts. Also a big thank you to all the great book bloggers out there who are writing awesome posts, reviewing books, or just generally sharing book and SFF love… whenever I see another of those “the end of books is nigh” or “no one reads any more” doom and gloom news articles, it is heartening to ignore it and think instead of all the book love I see out there every day… and to know I’m definitely not the only one who gets excited about the book they just read 🙂
