One Year Blogoversary!

by 12:30 AM 132 comments
Today marks the day I first set out to become a book blogger, one whole year ago. I've spoken to so many bloggers who say the time passes by really fast, and they don't lie. This last year has zoomed by, and I'm still here. Well, sort of.



I'm not giving to give you a run-down of all my stats, or a massive list of thank-yous - I don't want to bore you.

So let's all celebrate this time together, by having a giveaway of course!


We all love giveaways, and here's what I am going to give to you:

One winner can each pick a book, from the list of books that I have read and loved over the last year as a blogger, which I will list below.

Thanks for following me this year, you guys make it all worth it. May the odds be ever in your favour.


* The books that I awarded 5-stars in the past year *

  

 




 



Giveaway is International, as long as The Book Depository ships to you!

  119. Congratulations on one year under your belt!!! I'm sure it's been a ton of work, but hopefully also a ton of fun. I've enjoyed following along.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I also read a number of these same books within the past year and they were 5-star reads for me, too. There was basically one in every set of three that I scrolled past that I'd love to have, which makes the choice so hard! But I THINK I've narrowed it down to say that if I'm one of the lucky four, I'd choose LIES BENEATH. I've heard great things about it! Or possibly POISON PRINCESS or STARTERS ... had to throw that in there :)
