It's My...ONE YEAR Blogoversary!!

Out of all my posts this year-this one is the hardest. It's the hardest one to write for many different reasons, one being that I have been blogging for a freakin' entire YEAR. This is just hard to process, so reasonably, I can't think.


I mean, of course I always knew that my blogoversary would eventually come, but now that it is here, I'm just speechless.

First of all,  I started off not knowing ANYTHING whatsoever from writing reviews to designing a website. But, honestly, that was the fun part-learning everything(and yes, it was frustrating at times too). I mainly wanted to blog, because I thought it would be cool to write opinions on what I thought of books. I didn't know that it would take up so much time and also be part of such an amazing community too. Do I regret my decision? HECK NO. I am so happy I started a blog. Now, I can't imagine myself doing anything else in my life, although one day I probably will.(for another time!)

You know what I have enjoyed most about this blogging experience? It was the amazing, amazing bookish community. Mostly everyone I know is very nice and positive. And even though some drama pops up every now and then, don't be fooled, 'cause book bloggers are the nicest people who you will ever talk to! I have opened up so much more just by talking to these people through the internet. Like, not even joking, so many people!! I'm so sorry if I miss anybody, but these are some of the people who are some people who have been awesome(I'm also just pulling these out of memory during the time period of October 2012-September 2013!)

Eileen @ Singing and Dancing In The Rain
Nikki @ Fiction Freak
Taherah @ Books As You Know It
Hannah(also known as Inky) @ Book Haven Extraordinaire
Monica @ Cover Analysis
Meredith @ Pandora's Books
Sam @ Realm of Fiction
Megan @ The Book Babe
 Christina @ Ensconced in YA
Gillian @ Writer of Wrongs
Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf
Ashley @ Fire Star Books
Annabelle @ Sparkles and Lightning

"Also, extra points to Paula Stokes for being an amazing writer, blogger, and just an awesome, nice person overall." "And even though I don't talk to this blogger, Emily @ Emily's Crammed Bookshelf, because she inspired me to write my own blog!"

There are countless more, but those are just ones from the top of my head, and if I type out anymore, I may just run out of room xD

Some of my firsts:
My first post (Haha, this was actually for a contest and it consisted of about 2 sentences)

My first review (This indeed sucked. I didn't even paragraph anything, that's how bad it was.)

My first meme

Just as important as the community of book bloggers are the fantastic readers of my blog. Even if you're a brand new reader or an old one, you are so, so lovely and I'm giving you an internet hug right now.


Seriously, you are amazing people, even if I may not know you personally or not at all. I would ramble on and on how much I appreciate you, but I did that in an earlier post. Just thanks for keeping my blog alive and well <333

In thanks to show how much I appreciate you guys, I have a giveaway! All of you probably know the general rules, but if not, just click on my giveaways tab where you'll find them. Also this is INTERNATIONAL.
