Royal Reviews Announcement

Hi everyone

It is with sadness that I announce Royal Reviews is officially closing down this week.  This was a very tough decision for Alaine, Sheree and I to make however it is one that is ultimately best for our personal and family commitments.  While we have loved running Royal Reviews, the time commitment has simply become a little too much for each of us.

The challenges will remain on Royal Reviews until the end of 2010.  Feel free to keep posting the links to your reviews and interacting on these pages.  In 2011, the challenges will be moved to our own personal blogs.

On behalf of all the reviewers we would like to thank you all for being so friendly and welcoming in blog land.  Thank you for stopping by, commenting, joining the challenges and the competitions!  We will all still see you around on our personal blogs.

Alaine, Sheree and I would like to thank ALL of the lovely women who have blogged for Royal Reviews during the past year.  You have written some amazing reviews and continually added to our TBR piles.  In alphabetical order, these women are:

Goddess of Nobility @ Confessions and Ramblings of a Muse in the Fog

Princess of Pop Culture @ Totally Paused

Countess of Hearts @ J. Kaye's Book Blog

Maharani of Mayhem and Mysteries @ Liyanaland

Diabolical Dauphine @ Miss Picky Column

Marquise of Mischief @ Passages to the Past

Duchess of the Dark @ Poisoned Rationality

Queen of Happy Endings @ Queen of Happy Endings

Princess of the Past @ Reading, Writing & Ranting

Lady of Literature @ Review from Here

There have also been many many guest reviewers and bloggers over the past year - thank you sincerely for your contribution.  A big thank you also to all the authors and publishers who guest blogged and offered books for giveaways. 

Once again, thank you most of all to you wonderful readers for your support and we'll see you out there in blogland!

Love Annie
Princess of the Past

Gosh, it will be sad to see Royal Reviews going away. It was fun though!

We're all so sad to see you go, but understand. The time it takes for a personal blog, let alone for one that incorporates so many other reviewers must have been monumental. Thanks for your addition to the blogging world! Thanks, also, for letting me have a chance to post a few reviews with you as well. Best wishes!

It was a pleasure reading and I wish all of you the best. :)
