Well, today is the day I turn 19!!! I thought I would use today to write a post about the wonderful time I’ve had blogging so far, and make a few special shoutouts to some of my favourite bloggers and their blogs.
I started by blog on March 8, 2013, which was exactly 44 short days ago. It has been a blast! I can honestly say that starting this book blog has been one of the best decisions of my life. It has allowed me to delve deeper into the books I am reading, and appreciate them more. It’s given me and outlet to write just for me, something that I’ve never done before. Any time I ever had to write something, it was always for school, and it was something I was being told to write. And most importantly, having this blog has allowed me to make so many great new friends out there in the blogosphere!
I’m going to take a little bit of time now to talk about them:
As I mentioned in my very first post, Jamie was the person who inspired me to blog in the first place. Her blog is full of fantastic posts about books and life and these great little monthly rewind posts that I love! Jamie was also so helpful when I first started my blog, and gave me a few Twitter shoutouts to help the visitors start rolling in! If it weren’t for her, I don’t think my blog would be doing anywhere near as well as it is today. Thanks Jamie! <3 ( Twitter || Blog )
Magan was another blogger who was instrumental in helping my blog get up on its feet. She also gave me a few twitter shoutouts! I have loved getting to know Magan on twitter and I love out chats about Nail Polish and books and everything in between! Magan has an awesome blog too, which she runs with her co-blogger Estelle. Their blog is just too cute! ( Twitter || Blog )
Betty and I bonded on Twitter over our love of books, and boys with tattoos! We also both love music a lot, just VERY different genres ;) I’m a country lover, and Betty loves rock. I spent a good week trying to convert her, and I would count myself semi-successful, because she started listening a bit to Keith Urban! Yay for county guys with tats!!! Betty’s blog is fantastic, and her reviews are amazing. She lets you know EXACTLY how she feels about the book. Also, her Random Ranting posts are the best and make me laugh out loud quite often.

Alexa is an awesome chicka! I would consider her – along with all these other wonderful ladies – one of my best blogger friends. We talk on twitter about anything and everything, and she even managed to help me organize my bookshelf from hundreds of miles away!! Her blog is another one that I love, and all you lovely readers need to hop on over there and check it out! ( Twitter || Blog )
Now, seeing as it’s my birthday, I figured, what better way to celebrate than to give away a gift of my own to one of my awesome readers!!! This is my very first giveaway, and I will be giving away my ARC copy of Taken, a book that I loved. You can check out my review on it here.
