IT'S MY BLOGOVERSARY!!!! Time for a Giveaway!!

Hey all!! It's my blogoversary!!! 9 years ago today, YES 9, I created my little blog on a whim! I was itching to get extra entry points into a contest held by Rachel Vincent and a blog post was an example of one such thing. So I thought, let's give this blogging thing a try, and headed over to Blogger after googling blogging. And the rest, is history!


Naturally, in those days, there weren't many bloggers so I had zero clue as to what I was doing! But I just did my thing and my blog continued to evolve! And soon, the blogging community seriously opened up and took off! And it's been amazing 9 years ever since! Because of blogging I now have 300+ books to read! I've discovered authors I might not have ever read and have fallen in love with their books! Blogging is seriously one of the best things in my life that I enjoy and I don't see myself quitting any time soon! I mean, come on, I HAVE to make it to the 10 year mark next year! It's insane!!!

So for the past month, I've attended two signings, with a third to come this weekend in fact, and NOW is the time where you can win those lovely books!!

Here is the prize I have to offer:

a Beauty and the Beast Book Sleeve from Book Bubbie--yes, I am sharing my love with book sleeves with you! And what better pick then a Beauty and the Beast one?! And it's the LARGE size so it can fit those wonderfully thick hardcovers!
Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu--SIGNED!
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black--SIGNED!
*not pictured but will be included The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert--SIGNED!



This portion of the giveaway will be US addresses only, so if you got a US buddy to use and they can get the goodies to you later, that works too! But I am also giving away a book of your choice up to $20 (US) to anyone anywhere as long as the Book Depository ships to you!




Thank you to everyone who has been with me these crazy 9 years and to everyone who's joined in last year or 6 years or whenever! Having you all visit my blog when you do means the world to me! The blogging community is soooo big and that you come to visit me seriously makes me feel so incredibly happy! Thank you everyone!!

  9. Huge congratulations on your 9 year anniversary - and yes, of course you need to keep going until you get to double figures - and many, many years beyond:). I keep hearing about Anne Bishop and reading your extract only encourages me to track her down. Thank you for sharing. My TT this week is an amazing finale to a fabulous trilogy - https://sjhigbee.wordpress.com/2018/01/30/teaser-tuesday-30th-january-2018/

  15. Nine years is such a huge accomplishment! I think you must be one of the "oldest" book blogs out there. :-) I'm looking forward to LOTS of books this year, but Lake Silence and Legendary are two that pop into my mind!
