One Year Blogoversary Ramble and Giveaway

Hello there, my fellow book lovers!

Guess what?

IT'S MY FIRST BLOGOVERSARY! (If you haven't guessed by reading the title of this post.)

I can not even put into words how surprised I am at the fact that it has been an exact year since I made this blog! The year has gone very fast but not without meeting a load of awesome bloggers and new books that I would have never had the chance to read without the blogging world. I am utterly grateful to all those who read, comment and support my blog because the one year journey wouldn't have been the same without you all. 

At first, I didn't really know what I was doing; I kind of just posted a load of rubbish for fun. The reviews I posted were absolutely dreadful because I was a thirteen-year-old with not much experience in writing reviews. But gradually, I think my writing has gotten better and my opinion is now valued (to a certain extent (; ). 

I hope to carry on with the book blogging because it has been a lot of fun. But, I do have my serious exams coming up soon and I need to study and do homework and all that so I may have to post reviews less... Yes, even less than I already am! (I post reviews... like once a week, twice at most). I try to make my reviews entertaining while getting my point across, which I hope you guys have enjoyed reading as much as I've enjoyed writing them.

Here is what I have achieved this year:
Reviews posted: 147
Posts published: 364
Blog followers: 1450+


I want to thank these bloggers for being awesome, supporting me and helping to answer my questions!

- Sam at Realm of Fiction
Sam is simply epic. I adore her blog and her reviews. She is a really awesome blogger and the perfect rolemodel.
- Trayche at I Love Teen books
Trayche is really cool guy. If you've got a book buying problem then you need to talk to him!
- Kayleigh at K-Books
Kayleigh is one of the nicest bloggers out there! Make sure you check out her blog if you are a crazy Jennifer L. Armentrout fan.

There are plenty of other bloggers I would like to thank: Jen at The YA Sisterhood, Haley at Passing Pages and Kristin at Blood, Sweat and Books for always commenting and simply being great bloggers.

Okay, that was quite a lot of thank yous! Oh wait, ONE last thank you to you all for being absolutely incredible and reading the posts on my blog and keeping me company on Twitter and interacting with me on Goodreads and suggesting me books and OMG YOU GUYS ARE JUST AWESOME AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO THANK YOU!

I really love you guys so here's a giveaway for you. There will be two winners and it's international as long as The Book Depository ships to you. You may choose from one of the books  below.
Dance of Shadows (Dance of Shadows, #1)Under the Never Sky (Under the Never Sky, #1)Incarnate (Newsoul, #1)
