Six Month Blogoversary

Can you believe it? I have been blogging for six months now today! I know it is not a huge deal, but I still wanted to celebrate and share. I want to thank all of my followers, because you are all amazing! I love the feedback I get and I love gushing about books with you all! I am so glad I decided to join the blogging community and I hope to be around for a long time to come! I will never regret the day I decided to become a blogger!

So first and foremost I need to thank some people. These bloggers are just some really great people who have made blogging all the more fun! 

Magen @ Corrie The Book Crazed Girl - Magen is my book brain twin! Our brains pretty much run on the same wavelength, and whenever I need to ramble on about a book, Magen is always there to ramble with me. Magen just understands my crazy and I am pretty sure we talk on a daily basis. She was my first blogging friend and she is also one of the best! She is just butterflying awesome.
Carmen @ Book Me!
Maida @ Literary Love Affair
Andrea @ The Bookish Babe
Vi @ Confessions of a Vi3tBabe and Deity Island
Suri @ Oh Paper Pages
Tara @ Tater's Tall Tails
Kayleigh @ K-Books
Traci @ The Reading Geek
There are so many other blogs and bloggers that I love and I'm sure I forgot someone, but just know that I heart you all!


Now I have to thank the authors, because without them I would have nothing to blog about! So a very special shout out to these guys for creating great books that I easily get lost in and because most of them put up with my shennanigans:
M. Leighton
Nicole Williams
Chloe Jacobs
Jeri Smith-Ready
Jennifer L. Armentrout
Courtney Allison Moulton
Victoria Scott
Shelly Crane
Amalie Howard
Wendy Higgins
