Blogoversary Bash


It's been a whole year since I started this crazy, time-consuming, absolutely obsessive, but completely-love-and-wouldn't-have-it-any-other-way blog. Time doesn't just fly. It's on warp speed.

This blog has given me so much. I've expanded my library, made new connections, learned there was this fabulously enormous community of book lovers like myself, and, most importantly, it gives me something to look forward to every single day. It's my own little sanctuary, my escape (besides books, of course) ~ my little corner in the great world of the wide web, and I can do anything I want with it! It's pure freedom and it's my favorite place to be.

This is something I don't think I'll ever give up. I love books and the written word, and I want to spread that love as far as I can. I want to giveaway books and get people to read a book they would never have otherwise picked up. With the blogging community, I have the potential to reach more people and be one of the inspired. It's awesome and I'm so, so, so happy to be a small piece of it.

Goals for the Upcoming Year

*Bring you more up-to-date bookish news*

*Do more and more and more reviews*

*Finish the appearance of my blog*
(it's a never-ending process)

*Raise more topics of discussion*

*Begin a book club*

*Host more giveaways*

Bring it :)

To celebrate the past year, I'll be hosting a giveaway! We'll make this one international (yay!) and it'll run from today until March 7th.

    And of course all the awesome books!
    Thanks for the giveaway ^^

  6. Happy 1st Year Blogoversary!! *throws confetti and toots horns* Thanks for sharing it with us. Wishing you many more years of awesomeness!

    There is so much to love about the Book Blogging community. Some of my favorites are book reviews and discussions, author and character interviews, 'discovering' new authors and books I might not have otherwise, and I would be lying if I didn't say all the great giveaways.

  7. My favorite thing is that you get to find a lot of amazing books you never heard of(: and you get to see what people think about some books(:

  8. Happy Blogoversary! What I like about this community is the never ending sharing of thoughts.

  9. Happy Blogoversary! Thanks for the giveaway!

    My favorite thing? Getting to know different bloggers, book discussions and recommendations. Never would have have found out about so many books without them!

  10. Congrats on the one year. It's a great feeling, isn't it? And amazing how quickly time flies.

    I love learning about new titles. I've discovered some fabulous new authors through book blogs:)

  11. Congratulations on your one year anniversary! This is my first time spotting by the blog, but it's wonderful. I love how interconnected the book blogging can be.

  12. Stalking everyone's bookshelf! LOL! A lot actually, you'll never run out of things to do and learn from the blogging community. Lots of books to read and share and discuss! And giveaways, of course. Thanks for this! :)

  13. I love interacting with all of the bloggers and sharing our love of books!

  14. I adore all of the bloggers in the book blogging community for so many reasons. You all share reviews, introduce us to new authors/books, share thoughts and stories, allow for great book conversation and do generous giveaways. Without the book blogging community I don't think half the books would get the attention that they do. I realized that half the books I read last year were recommended by the book blogs that I follow (yours included). That's a pretty powerful testimony to your influence!
    Happy Blogoversary! And Best Wishes to you for the next year!
