Alexa S. - I already said this on Twitter, but I want you both to know that I love you ladies fiercely. I’ll never forget how the two of you were two of the first people I really became friends with outside of the Internet, and how you’ve always been so kind, so generous and so wonderful about collaborating, sharing things and just being there. I love you both, and wherever your journeys take you at the end of the year, you know I’ll be there <3 <3 <3

Tiff @ Mostly YA Lit - I just wanted to say…I was reading this blog for years before I met you, Estelle (still haven’t met Magan *tears*), and it inspired me so much. I’ve learned about really special books because of you, but I’ve also learned a lot about opening up and being honest on my blog because of you. Thanks so much for sharing your friendship and love of books (I’m texting Sarah crying emojis while writing this).

Lisa @ Bookish Broads - Okay, how am I not supposed to cry while reading this?!

I live both your faces so damn much. I know we will all keep in touch but I will miss your blog posts!

Thanks for being a sincere, kind, funny and whimsical blog with integrity for so many years.

Meg - I haven’t been as diligent at commenting as I should have been, but know how much I have loved getting to know y’all through RBR over the years — you will be missed! I definitely understand evolution and change and letting things go… sometimes it’s important, even necessary. And I’m sure this won’t be the last we’ll hear from you! <3

betty - YOU GUYS! This breaks my heart because honestly, I love your blog… and both of you! But… I TOTALLY GET IT. Life pulls you in a million different directions and with that, things change. I’m sure this wasn’t an easy decision! I hope you both know how many people have truly enjoyed your thoughts, creativity, and getting to know you on a personal level. Please, PLEEEEASE stay in touch! <3 Good luck in all that you do!!

Ginger @ GReads! - My blogging life is brighter for having the two of you in it <3 This is bittersweet news to read, but I completely understand. I remember when the two of you first began… I was only a year into blogging at the time. Thanks to the both of you, I have discovered some amazing books. But above that, I've also discovered a beautiful friendship. Thank you for that xxoo
