It’s my Two Year Blogoversary!
It’s hard to believe it has been two years since I first clicked on Blogger and made that jump to starting my own blog after months of following so many others. Blogging has been such an amazing experience for me and has led to all sorts of new friendships with people who love to read as much as I do.
A lot has changed in this past year. The most obvious it that I made the jump to WordPress over the summer. Of course I am still working on reformatting old reviews. It’s a lot more time consuming than I originally expected but I work on it every now and then and maybe by year 3 I will have it done. I can honestly say I still have no clue what I’m doing as a blogger in general. I just go with the flow and write the posts I want and that’s good enough for me!
Another change you may or may not know about, is that I am pregnant with baby #3 and due in exactly one month from today! I have slowed down with my blogging these past few months and I’m sure that will continue with a newborn, but I am still here as much as I can be, reading and writing posts! I love it too much to give it up. 🙂
So as a thank you for all of my readers for these past two years, I have a few giveaways planned for the next few days. Some will be US/CAN but I will also have one for my International readers as well.
I am super excited about this first giveaway, which is also following the same trend I used last year too. As someone who doesn’t live in the prime location for author signings and events, it is hard not to look forward to bringing you guys this first giveaway. In May I will be attending the Rochester Teen Book Festival. It is an annual event where approximately 30 authors attend to talk about their books and sign copies for the fans. I’ve attended that past two years and each time was so much fun!
So for this first giveaway I am offering TWO lucky US/CAN readers the chance to pick a book from one of the following authors who are scheduled to attend and I will get you a copy PERSONALIZED to you! Please note: I recommend having a second choice just in case something happens and an author has to back out of the event last minute.

*If for some reason I don’t mention a specific book by the author that you are interested in and it is reasonably priced, please let me know. I just didn’t want to take the time to list everything they’ve written.
Honestly, there are so many more authors I plan on seeing but I am fearful I won’t have time for everyone so these are the authors I chose for this giveaway.
The Rochester Teen Book Festival is scheduled for May 17th, which is a couple weeks after this giveaway ends. Books will be mailed to the winners during the week after the event.
1. Giveaway is US/CAN only! (So sorry International followers but I do have something for you tomorrow!)
2. Must be at least 13 years old to enter.
3. Winner has 48 hours to respond or another winner will be selected.
4. I am not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items.
5. Please follow the entry directions in the rafflecopter. (I do check and will delete entries that do not follow the directions. If you have any questions on how to enter, please ask!)
Once again, thank you to all the wonderful readers, bloggers and authors who have made this past year so much fun! Here’s hoping for another great year! Don’t forget to stop back over the next few days for more giveaways.
