New Blog Design. New Full-Time Reviewer. New Giveaway!

Okay, so some of you may notice a change to Nawanda Files. There have been two MAJOR updates recently. I'll start with the most obvious one. Nawanda Files has a new design!

Hafsah over at Icey Books is a wizard, magician, and maybe even has gone to Hogwarts because she pulled out some magic on this blog! She's seriously amazing and super helpful. If you ever want a new or improved blog design I'd recommend her a thousand times. 

Now some of you may be scratching your heads because I did get a new design over the summer. And I really did like it. Take a look at the old one below. 


It's very cute, but also very me. Which brings me to my next set of news. 

There is a new full time blogger at Nawanda Files! My twin sister, Becca, has been promoted from a guest reviewer. Yay! So you will be seeing her around the blog much more now. The plan is by the end of next year she'll be taking it over completely. 

Which is why we needed a new blog design to reflect both of us. I love this design so much because it's clean and cute...and did you check out those social media icons. ROLL OVER THEM and BE AMAZED! Hafsah is a magician. No doubt. 


Now time for an epic giveaway for our (I'm going to have to get used to writing in plural possessive) epic new design. 
Open Internationally as long as The Book Depository ships to you. 
Winner will receive a choice of book up to $12
It ends November 1st

Enter the rafflecopter below

  4. Krista, will you be done with blogging by the end of next year? Not that I don't love Becca's posts, but maybe I read that sentence wrong when you said she'll be taking over the blog completely?

    1. I'll be here until I go to medical school, which will be August of next year. I'll still post some, but be demoted to a guest reviewer, lol :D And I'll definitely be browsing other blogs still. I can't totally leave ;) I love blogging too much!

    2. Don't let her fool you. She's addicted to blogging. She says that she'll quit eventually, but I know she won't. It's all a ruse! :)

  7. Congrats on the new design, I think everyone love it! Personally, I love the background brushes, the header has a way more fantasy feel to it because of it and I think it's a good continuation of the space theme ;) I also love this shade of blue, actually, I love almost EVERY shade of blue, anyway, LOVE IT! :)

    Good luck in med school. Believe me, you'll be doing a LOT of reading but of a totally different genre. I'm not a doc but I come from a family of them(mother, father, brother, husband) so I might as well be an honorary one.

  78. I'm really upset with myself that I never commented on this post. I really love the color of everything. The blue background is one of my favorite shades of blue and the little light blow, dark blue, light green, dark green lines at the bottom of the page are totally cute. Again, some of my favorite colors. I really like the banner, it reflects both of you (:

    This was truly an awesome design!
