It's My Two Year Blogiversary! (And there's a giveaway!)


It's my two year blogiversary! Two years ago, I started a little book blog in hopes of meeting and talking to more people who shared my love of all things literary. I'm still in awe at how much it's grown in these two short years. I've met some truly fantastic people these past couple of years and read so many fantastic books because of this blog.

As an added bonus, on the same day as my blogiversary I also reached 7,000 followers on Tumblr. I'm not going to lie, I was secretly hoping to reach this milestone in time for the big day and when it happened I actually think a screamed (ask my roommate).

In order to celebrate these two special milestones I'm hosting a giveaway! That's right, I'm giving away two prizes and it's open internationally! Check below for more detailed instructions and access the widget to enter.

Thank you so much to everyone who's made these two years so special. I can't wait to see what the future has to bring!

  14. I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO PICK. The Princess Diaries XI is coming out this summer. Raven Boys IV is coming out later this year. Okay. I've narrowed it down to A Thousand Splendid Suns, All the Light We Cannot See, The Knife of Never Letting Go ooooooooooooorrrrr The Outsiders.

    Replies
    1. In my biased opinion I would have to recommend All The Light We Cannot See because it's ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL (and because it's the only one I've read of the books you've mentioned)
