It’s my 5 year Blogoversary!
I cannot even believe it has been 5 years! Blogging has been one of the greatest things in my life. It’s been a great opportunity to get me out of my shell and meet other book lovers who enjoy reading as much as I do! I’ve met some amazing people and been introduced to amazing books. Even though last year I wasn’t able to blog as much as I wanted to, it’s been so much fun to be back these past few months and I look forward to continuing to do the same.
This past year has been such a busy and crazy time. My kids continue to grow and change. My little one is just about to turn 3 and continues to keep me on my toes! My oldest, Shawn, is now 10 and becoming a huge reader too. Nothing makes me more proud. He’s even expressed an interest in writing and is currently working on his first novel. 🙂
If any of my readers have been with me from the beginning, I used to do a feature on my blog with Shawn where he would make cover art and share his thoughts on what a book might be about just by looking at the cover. My middle child, Jacob, is now 6 and has just recently taken over the feature so I am super excited to have the chance to share all that with you guys as well. You can check those out HERE.
And when I am not chasing my kids around or reading, I can be found over at YA Bound Book Tours. 🙂
So as a thank you for all of my readers for these past five years, I have a couple giveaways planned for the next couple days. Today’s will be US/CAN only but tomorrow I’ll have something available for my International readers as well.
I am super excited about this first giveaway, which is also following the same trend I used in past blogoversary giveaways. 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 25 authors attend to talk about their books and sign copies for the fans. I’ve attended quite a few times now and each time has been so much fun!
So for this first giveaway I am offering TWO lucky US/CAN readers the chance to pick ONE book from one of the following authors who are scheduled to attend and I will get you a copy PERSONALIZED to you!
Sarah J. Maas
Honestly, there are so many more authors I plan on seeing but I am fearful I won’t have time for everyone (sadly that happened to me last time and I was super bummed) so these are the authors I chose for this giveaway.
The Rochester Teen Book Festival is scheduled for May 20th, which is a few 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 tomorrow for another giveaway!
