Can you believe it? I barely can.
Two years ago, I was bored with only having work and no school (oh those were the days!) and I wanted something to do in my free time. And so I embarked on this journey that has led to so many opportunities. In particular, I’d like to think that this year I have made closer connections to others in this reading and blogging community than I made the year before. I feel like I have real friends in this community now and it’s wonderful.
This year brought us a new layout, a new co-blogger, and a new contributor! I started graduate school and dealt with some reading slumps. I craved a good series and discussed how I always bring a book with me.
I got to moderate two panels at the Northern Virginia Teen Book Festival and meet with some lovely authors, like Marie Rutkowski and Kristen Simmons.
And what’s been the best is all the comments and conversations across the blog and the web.
So to celebrate, I’m hosting giveaways across all platforms throughout the week!
The first one went up last night on Instagram…check it out below:
