To *MEEEE* (me being Racquel!) The Book Barbies was created August 27th, 2011 by Jennifer who is no longer a part of this blog but she is a co-blogger over at A Reading Daydreamer.
(I haven't posted a blogoversary post on the 27th because that was the day I got back home. Too busy!! Teehee)
On September 7th, 2011 *I* officially joined the blog. I didn't actually post until the 12th but Jennifer announced me on the 7th.
Jennifer left the blog on December the 7th and my current lovely, amazing, out of the world co-blogger Emma joined The Book Barbies on December the 17th! (Every anniversary date starts with a SEVEN- my lucky number!)

Some posts that scream ME! (This was totally a TTT prompt a few weeks back!)
The Book Barbies has sometimes been a stressful experience, sometimes the drama got annoying but overall and in the end, I do not regret joining the blog not one bit! It has taught me a lot about my reading tastes:
- contemporary is my genre
- paranormal and dystopian don't really click with me
- romance is a must
- holy shit I fucking love adult contemporary romance, enough to give up YA for them
- If it's not mature, I probably won't like it, that's why I love new adult books
