Wow everyone…can you believe it? My blog is one year old today! Nope, I can’t believe it either. One year ago I was sitting at Julie A Lindsey‘s table talking about a book she had written that I had been reading for her. She told me I needed to give opinions for other aspiring authors, so I made myself a blog and started beta reading. That led to reviewing and that has led to here! Julie has now gone on to be a published author with books coming out next year…AND a 3 book deal! So much has happened over the year and I have read a ton of books. Some were so amazing I can still picture them in my head even now. Those are the best ones, the ones that play out like a movie inside my head. The ones I can see, hear and even smell. If a book can’t accomplish that then is simply another book…but for the ones that can, it’s magical.


On top of the authors I have met a ton of super cool bloggers. Seriously, without their help my first year would have gone a a lot slower. They were always there to answer my questions and to help me out if I needed it. So I want to say thank you to Bellie, Smexy, Tori, Colette, Stacey, Tigris and Danielle! I’m sure I’m forgetting people too.


  These authors and bloggers are women I admire and feel fortunate to call friend. I am looking forward to the next year and I can’t wait to see what it will bring! Thank you so much to all the authors that have helped me celebrate my first year over this past month…thank you for believing in me and letting me into your minds for a short while, one book at a time.


So if you’ve been wondering what all the guest posts and giveaways were about…well, now you know 🙂

As a thank you for the past year I wanted to have small giveaway! I will pick one random commenter from this post and they will get their choice of book from thebookdepository.com up to $10 in US money. This is open to anywhere that the book depository ships. I will leave it open until July 2nd and announce the winner on July 3rd. Please leave a way for me to contact you.
