Readers Live A Thousand Lives Turns Four!!!

Time really does fly! I cannot believe I have been blogging for four years now. In many ways I still feel so "new" to blogging but I guess that doesn't really apply to me anymore. Starting my blog was one of the best decisions I could have made. I have made so many wonderful friendships and it has brought me so many experiences I wouldn't trade anything for.

This has been a fun year! I read so many good books and I had a bunch of fun on the blog! Some of my favorite posts from this past year were:
25 Days Of Book Boyfriends: Rowan Whitethorn

And of course, blogging would not be what it is without the wonderful people. I would be remiss if I didn't mention what I consider the best thing to come out of blogging... my wifey/parabati/lobster/soul sister/person/wonder twin Michele of A Belles Tales. They say there is one person in the world who is your "match" and Michele is mine. I don't remember what life was like before I bugged her on a daily basis and I don't want to know. We can talk about books for days on end and there is nothing I enjoy more than dissecting a book with her. But aside from the books, she is just a wonderful person that I am incredibly lucky to know and I know that no matter what nonsense or problem I have she is always there to talk me down or rile me up. If nothing else good ever came out of blogging, I would always be thankful that I commented on her Soul Screamers goodreads status that day because it gave me a best friend.

Then of course there are the bunch of other wonderful friends I have made and I really hope I don't forget anyone because I will then feel like an ass. We have Magen (Corrie The Book Crazed Girl) who is both my first and one of my closest bloggy friends. I love fangirling over books with Magen and I know if she loves a book I will too. Then we have Jessica (Lovin Los Libros) who is now a fellow NYCer and I am so excited to have a book buddy so close to me. I can't wait to see what trouble we get into. And Vi (Vi3tbabe)! What would I do without Vi? I adore discussing books with her (especially the JLA ones). I cannot wait until we get to see each other again, cause I miss her face. Of course there is all of my fellow minxes and our shared love of M. Leighton. And there are so many other wonderful bloggers that I could go on and on for days (and I know I am forgetting some people because I suck). Know I love you all and love being a part of this community. 

And now, what would a celebration be without a giveaway! I have two giveaways today. A box of books and a mystery swag pack. Both are US only (sorry, shipping is expensive).

  11. I'm not crying -- you're crying. Ahh, Wifey. I cannot believe there was a time in my life when I didn't have a you. I will forever thank my lucky stars for that Goodreads day and that Soul Screamers comment that brought us together. You're my favorite part of blogging and one of the biggest reasons why I'm still doing it. You've talked me down from that ledge so many times lol. You keep me motivated, you keep me in the loop, and most importantly you keep me incredibly happy to have a best friend like you. Congratulations on four years, Wifeycakes! Love you oodles and gobs <3

    1. I love you Wifey... you are seriously the best thing to come out of blogging and I thank my lucky stars every day for you *smish*


I love getting comments and appreciate every single one of them! It always brightens my day =]

This is an award free blog. I truly appreciate the thought but I simply do not have the time. Comments are an award all on their own =]
