2 Year Blogoversary & Giveaway!!



I cannot believe it's been 2 Years now since I started this crazy blogging journey. This year has been quite a roller coaster for me and has dealt out it's fair share of ups and downs but all of it's been worth it in the end even the less than stellar bits. I have met so many fantastic authors, started reading outside my comfort zone and made many blogger friends along the way who I truly feel blessed to have in my life.

  I'm going to try and keep this short as I tend to ramble when talking about my blog and what you all mean to me. 
So first off, I just want to give a couple shout outs to a few who keep me entertained throughout the year and who always have great advice to give should I need it.  Giselle @ Expressoreads, BookNerd @MandiKaye, Book Tasty @Book_Tasty & Jen @BookDen  you ladies rock and I just felt you should know that.
As always I am incredibly grateful for my followers. Even when I've flaked off for a day or two you still stuck by this blog. I always have fears about losing followers if I'm to inconsistent in my posting but I now know that those of you who for some reason really enjoy my postings and random ramblings will stick by this blog no matter and honestly I can't Thank you all enough for that.  I especially want to give a big internet hug to all of you who comment and share my posts week after week, it really means so much!

Lastly, I want to Thank the Publishers and Authors who request me to read and review their work, participate in tours or have as a Guest on the blog. It's such an incredible thing to me that people actually want to hear my opinions about their works and yes I do still get Starstruck when I receive E-mails from people whose status in the Literary World far exceeds my own. You're all Rockstars and I couldn't do this without you. Here's to another great year.
