Welcome to my new blog!

Hi and welcome to my new blog "Reviews From My First Reads Shelf".
My name is AimeeKay and I will be your reviewer/poster/general ring leader.
I've been toying with the idea of a book oriented blog for some time now.  I decided to first get my feet wet by doing some guest posts/reviews for Vvb at Vvb32reads.  Then I took it a step further, since no one said they out right hated my reviews, and volunteered to be a reviewer for Melissa over at Books and Things.  (these are both very AWESOME blogs by the way, definitely go check them out after you're done here, they have tons of contests, awesome events, and all sorts of cool stuff)

Finally I decided I was ready to start my own review blog. I had a few things to consider in starting my blog though. 1-I still LOVE doing reviews for Books and Things, and I love doing guest posts/reviews for Vvb32reads.  2-I have heard tons of other bloggers saying they can't take any new books because they are buried in a TBR pile.  3-I just won a whole bunch of books from GoodReads First Reads Giveaways.  which I planned to do reviews for since they ask so nice and all when you enter the contests.

So I decided the reviews in my new review blog only on books that I had won from GoodReads First Reads Giveaways.  I will be doing reviews of them anyway, and this will give me somewhere else to post them besides GoodReads and Amazon.  I don't have to worry about my TBR pile getting too out of hand since the books I will be reading will be based on the luck of the draw.  Hopefully this will leave me with enough free time to still participate in the events at Vvb32reads and still do the reviews for Books and Things.

Plus I'll be able to participate in blog hops and other events, have giveaways, do author interviews and all kinds of stuff!  So feel free to let me know what you think! Comments are always welcome and appreciated.
(for those of you who've read my reviews on Books and Things, you know I'm a comment junkie!)
