It’s been THREE YEARS since I started this little old blog of mine. Three years!!! I started it in early September of 2009, and posted my first review September 14th. I know, I’m a day late in posting, but still, let’s celebrate!
First off, I want to thank you. Anyone who has ever read my blog, left a comment, entered a giveaway, sent me a book for review… all of you mean the world to me and motivate me to keep on posting and sharing. I especially thank those of you who have been here from the start.
In the three years since I’ve started, I’ve grown and changed so much. I was a sophomore in college, still an undergrad, and now I’m in my second to last semester of GRAD school! What the what?! Where did the time go?
Let’s see… what else has happened these last three years? I fell in love, I got engaged, I rescued a dog, I started at the library, I lost 75 pounds (so far!)… and you, my bloggy friends, have been there for all of it and more. I thank you with all of my heart.
I have met some wonderful people and have made some great friends along the way. I went to BEA (B E freaking A, people!), turned some blog friends into real life friends, and have just been filled with love and gratitude for this community – bloggers, readers, authors and publishers alike. It’s so fulfilling to be able to connect with other people who are just as passionate about books as I am.
With all that said, I want to spread the book love a little more. To celebrate, I am giving away some of my favorite books I’ve read since starting this blog. One lucky reader will win all nine of the books below! This is my biggest giveaway yet and I’m so excited to share some of my favorites with you! There were about 20 books total I wanted to give out, the ones that have really stuck with me over the last three years, but alas, I am not made of money. I had to narrow it down to just these nine of the twenty. Every single one of these books is so special to me and I want others to read them and fall in love too. Click on the titles below to go to my reviews for the books, if you’re interested.
To enter, please just comment below with your email address. Please be in the USA. I will draw a winner on October 1st via random.org. I will be ordering these books online and sending them out to the winner. Some will be new, some will be used – hope you don’t mind.
Thank you all so much! Please check out the list below to see all the books you’ll get if you win:
