My blog is 4 years old!

My blog is 4 years old today!


It's seriously a little hard to believe. I know I've said this before but becoming a book blogger was completely by chance. I started off as a personal blogger who posted book reviews sometimes. Then more and more the reviews took over and I was happy to let that happen. But here I am, four years later, and my blog continues to evolve along with me. I've slowly but surely introduced my personal side back in while indulging in bookish fun to accompany my reviews. What's been wonderful to me is that I still have a lot of fun doing this!

The reason why I've been blogging since high school, in many various forms, is because this is one of my creative outlets. Writing, chatting about books or anything that interests me, making graphics and letting my inner child come out to play (I swear sometimes my features are just an excuse to do things I normally wouldn't!). All of that is what keeps me coming back here. But I'm sure this space will continue to grow and change as I do and I just hope you all will stick with me as that happens! 

(Don't worry, there will alway be lots and lots of book talk here!)

Every year, I tell myself that I'm going to do something fun – like a giveaway – for my blog anniversary and it never happens because by the time I remember, the date has already passed! So I'm feeling pretty proud of myself for finally doing this. To celebrate, I'm hosting a special giveaway. I went through my Goodreads and looked at all my 5 star books from 2011 to 2015. I picked one of those books from each year and included them in my giveaway below (along with some book swag!). 


All of these books mean so much to me and whoever the lucky winner is, I hope you'll tweet or email me with your thoughts! The giveaway is U.S. only and will run from today until Wed, October 14th. Good luck!

    A high school superlative... Hmm. I'd probably be "most likely to become MIA" when it comes to high school gatherings :')
